On July 30, 1945, the USS Indianapolis was torpedoed in the South Pacific by a Japanese submarine. An estimated 300 men were killed upon impact; close to 900 sailors were cast into the Pacific Ocean, where they remained undetected by the navy for nearly four days and nights. Battered by a savage sea, they struggled to stay alive, fighting off sharks, hypothermia, and dementia. By the time rescue arrived, all but 317 men had died. The captain's subsequent court-martial left many questions unanswered

The book was excellent but the narrator would speak to softly in some parts and could not hear what he was saying. Then I would turn the volume up and he would speak in a booming voice that was too loud.

Are you ready to see your fixer-upper? These famous words are now synonymous with the dynamic husband-and-wife team Chip and Joanna Gaines, stars of HGTV's Fixer Upper. As this question fills the airwaves with anticipation, their legions of fans continue to multiply and ask a different series of questions, like: Who are these people? What's the secret to their success? And is Chip actually that funny in real life?

I enjoyed listening to the story of Chip and Joanna Gaines. However, the sound would get loud then really soft so it was difficult to listen to in the car and constantly adjust the volume.

Colin Hancock is giving his second chance his best shot. At 28, he's focused only on walking a straight line - getting his teaching degree, working out at the gym religiously, and avoiding all the places and people that proved so destructive in his earlier life. The last thing he's looking for is a serious relationship. But when Maria Sanchez crosses paths with him on a rainswept night in North Carolina, his plans are upended in a way that will rattle the foundations of his carefully structured life.

The narrator was very good, but I just couldn't stay interested in the story. There were a lot of side scenes that didn't take the plot anywhere. Then there would be one that was pretty interesting and add to the story. I kept thinking the story would get better because the summary sounded interesting, but it never went anywhere and the conclusion was disappointing.

The story was kind of slow in places, but it was also very entertaining in others. The narrator was excellent using different accents and very easy to hear and understand.
