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.

Would you consider the audio edition of Flying North South East and West: Arctic to the Sahara to be better than the print version?

Joshua Bennington did a great job with this narration. I enjoyed hearing him tell the stories Capt.Reece wrote about.

Any additional comments?

I recommend this book to anyone interested in flying. The stories are entertaining and packed with adventures. It is well written with humor and realism. The narrator Joshua Bennington gives these stories even more life.

Insurance adjusters meet clients on the worst days of their lives, and they must be diplomatic, tactful, and ethical. The job is not only about returning phone calls and doing paperwork. Whether the case involves cargo damage, residential and business property damage, fire, fraud, burglary, or arson, it's the job of the adjuster to get to the bottom of things.

What did you love best about Adjuster Stories?

I think the book gave me a better understanding of the insurance industry. I never knew what an insurance adjuster was or what his function was in my claims

Any additional comments?

I recommend the audio book. I found it kept my attention and turned up my interest in the insurance industry in a way I did not think possible. The narration was good and the writing was in a very clipped manner almost like reading an insurance claim!

Tested by Fire was a very powerful book and the narration Joshua Bennington gave if even more life. The audio book was many times more real than the printed version. It was hard to turn off the narration when I had to leave the car. I did't want to put it down. Great book!!

Would you listen to Joshua's Tree again? Why?

I have already listened to Joshua's Tree twice. I liked to hear the narrator

What about Joshua Bennington’s performance did you like?

I think Joshua Bennington turned out a great performance when he did this book and I like just hearing him, I will be looking for more of his books.

Any additional comments?

Very entertaining with a lot of humor and much violence but still a story of our futures or lack of a future. This book needs another book for an ending.

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.

Where does Boating: A Life's Journey rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is a good audio book but certainly not the best I have ever heard. What I liked about the narration was that it did not sound like a professional announcer but a real person.

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

I liked when the author leaves the ICW and takes us for a ride to some of the out of the way places he has visited.

What does Joshua Bennington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Joshua Bennington tells the story like I believe the author would be telling the story down at the dock to one of his friends.

Any additional comments?

A boaters book! Believable boating book.

Four years ago, Erin's life changed drastically. Her drug-addicted brother killed her parents, and her marriage disintegrated. Her husband Matt, an FBI agent, had done his duty when he'd arrested Stuart, but she'd been too caught up in her own grief to allow him to help her move through the shadows of pain. Now Matt is back, but it isn't to attempt reconciliation. Her brother has escaped from Attica, and Erin is his next target. Matt will stop Stuart by any means necessary.
