Every book in this series is a pure gem and this one does not disappoint. I'm sad this series is over, but it goes out on a very high note. All of the major plotlines that were threaded throughout this series are neatly tied up and it does not feel forced or cheap. This is how to end a great series.

I was always a fan of Bob's, from the cheesy NASCAR gimmick up until his departure and I'm glad that he wrote this book. Bob strikes me as a man that tells the truth and doesn't care what you think.....to him the truth is the truth and sometimes the truth hurts so suck it up. Bob 'Hardcore Holly' Howard is a hard working man that prides himself on his abilities and ethics and that comes across in this book. His stories of his life in the WWF/E are raw and honest, and his insights into the business are spot on. Love him or hate him....Hardcore tells you how it is.

As a fan of both NPH and the classic 'Choose Your Own Adventure' series, this book was welcome on both fronts. Neil spins a wonderful tale of his life, and while acting as narrator, puts on a stellar performance. With fact, fiction and words from friends intermingled, this book is an amazing read about and amazing man!

An excellent coming of age book that any age group and generation can relate to. This novel captures the trials and tribulations of growing up, the fear we all experienced being teenagers, trying to fit in and it didn't pull any punches.

If you saw the movie, don't worry. I feel the book enhances the movie, going beyond what they could do on the big screen. Even though I knew "the twist", it's still hard to see it coming. Many say this book is an attack on commercialism, but for me I found it to be a brilliant insight into a truely deranged mind!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Oh yes indeed!! What makes this book so great is how historically accurate it is. The author really goes to great lengths to keep the sound and feel of the era. Taking historical events, and adding the twist of vampires was perfect. If vampires did exist, the explinations given in the book for certain events seems plausable.

What about Scott Holst’s performance did you like?

He gave each character a distinct voice, and his performance as Lincoln was spot on. His voice really brings the story to life.

Where does Star Wars rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is not the best SW novel out there, but definatly in the top 10.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The obvious choice is Mace Wundu, but I would have to say, Nick. Nick is a Korran rebel that aids Mace for most of the book. Quick witted, and a deceptivly capable fighter, Nick is far from the "dopey sidekick".

What did you love best about Kenobi?

Kenobi was a well paced story from start to finish, with elements of action and drama mixed nicely. We really get to dive deep into Obi-Won's soul, and learn more about his feeling towards Anakin, and the emotions he felt during and after Episode III.

What other book might you compare Kenobi to and why?

Not so much a book, but a classic movie.....The Rifleman.

What about Jonathan Davis’s performance did you like?

Jonathan Davis is the GO TO GUY to narrate Star Wars novels! He captures Obi-Won's voice and character to a tee, and he gives life to the assorted characters in the novel.

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

The ending for sure, after Obi-Won resolves the story's issues/conflicts, and grants himself a measure of forgivness for the actions of Episode II/III.

Any additional comments?

The narration is slow to the point that it is painful. While the books premise seemed intriguing, the author drones on and on about his childhood, not getting to the actual plot for quite some time. Try as I like, I just couldn't hang in there.

Would you listen to Columbine again? Why?

yes indeed! it gives great insight into the actual event and into the "why". the author has gone to great lengths to stick to the facts, and much of what he explores was either long forgotten, ignored or never brought to public attention.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

That all of the rumors, theories and myths behind Columbine were just that....mostly false rumors and misbeliefs. This is the first work that I've come across that really explores the minds of Dylan and Eric, looking to see why they did what they did.
