Showed what the stars of the time were really like...beyond the tabloids.

Bar hopping with Richard Burton, Peter O'Toole and others.

Yes - two times - but don't want to give spoilers.

Good combo...very good book and good narration.

Would you consider the audio edition of One of Their Own to be better than the print version?

Yes...in the sense that I can listen on the go.

What other book might you compare One of Their Own to and why?

The other five.

Which character – as performed by James Killavey – was your favorite?

All of them. I think he is the best of the narrators for this series so far. Glad the author is keeping him. However some don't like him ... and in these politicized days have to go to extremes. "Horrible. The worse. Sad." Sigh.

Any additional comments?

Decide for yourself about the narrator. That's what the samples there for.

Too many to name just one.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No..too long.

Any additional comments?

Important book..especially this year with an election coming up.

What did you love best about Wheels Stop: The Tragedies and Triumphs of the Space Shuttle Program, 1986-2011?

Actually..the audio. I had read the book a few months ago but wanted to see ( or hear ) what the audio was like. If anything, the experience is even better. Less work for me and it's giving me a sense of "being there" that I didn't get with the print version.

Which character – as performed by James Killavey – was your favorite?

I was surprised to find that, while many people, including me, like the narration, a few really blasted it. Hard to see or hear why but...to each his own. Listen to the sample and decide for yourself. If you like the sample, you'll like the book. If you don't..don't buy it. Can never figure out why people don't bother to do that and then complain about the narration.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Wheels Stop sounds fine to me.
