What did you love best about Joshua's Tree?

I liked all of the un-naturally born creatures in the book.

What did you like best about this story?

The story moves a long at a good clip but comes an abrupt halt at the end. There should be more to the book.

Which character – as performed by Joshua Bennington – was your favorite?

I liked how Mr. Bennington gives Joshua a young mans voice and Nadia a rough girls voice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The book tells of the earth's future and although it is a science fantasy it could still take place if not like in this book but something like it.

Any additional comments?

Great book, it was hard to turn the book off. I just wanted to find out what was going to happen next.

This audiobook is a delightful light-hearted tale about boating. It is the memoir of a lifelong boater, written from the perspective of a person who has not made a living at sea but is just there because he enjoys being on the water. The audiobook has stories about his pets on board and about the people he meets traveling the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) to the Gulf Intracoastal Waterways (GIWW). He traveled extensively for 10 years in a Grand Banks trawler. This journey has been just part of his lifelong boating adventures seeking that elusive boating paradise.

What made the experience of listening to Boating: A Life's Journey the most enjoyable?

My wife and I listened to the book together. That was something we had never done before. We had always read a book and then talked about what we had read. Doing the book together was a lot of fun. The narrator was clear and the story was easy to follow.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Boating: A Life's Journey?

I liked when the author told about the rules of the road when in the ICW. Very true and very funny.

Which character – as performed by Joshua Bennington – was your favorite?

There were no characters but the author. It was a memoirs book told in the first person.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I like the story of the authors first boat and how it was towed into a Coast Guard Station and then his father told him, he could always get another one!

Any additional comments?

Another ICW book with a little different slant about his voyages in and out of the ICW. A different perspective of cruising with a lot of reminiscing.

How can one pilot cram so much into a single lifetime? Climb into Captain Terry Reece's cockpit, fasten your seatbelt, and hold on for an exciting journey into the world of aviation. Born to a family of transplanted North Carolinians who moved to Washington State, a young Reece explored the hills of the Pacific Northwest. Hiking in the mountains and being a fire lookout gave him a taste of adventure, but he craved more-and he got it.
