  • Geronimo

The specific details of Geronimo's birth and early years are sparse due to the preliterate culture of Apaches. Yet, the customs and habits of Geronimo's people offer us an understanding of their strong ties to the land for which they were willing to battle to the death. No churches, temples, mosques, or synagogues graced Apache land; instead, the land, itself, was sacred.

What made the experience of listening to Geronimo the most enjoyable?

I love to read stories about native Americans and their struggle with the expanding settlers. What they did to protect their home lands.from the invasion.

What about Susan McElhone’s performance did you like?

I liked her read. I thought I was listening to an older Indian female telling the story about one of the famous members of her tribe.

Any additional comments?

Get the audio book it was great! We need more books about native American Indians.

Wedding day arrives for Lieutenant Banks, and the whole gang is enjoying themselves. Jason is the lone detective on duty, and before the night is over, he must leave the celebration. The scene he finds himself at is the opposite of where he just came from. A cold-blooded murder without any apparent motive, and very little in the way of evidence. Just a group of friends who can't understand why one of their own is suddenly gone.

Believe it or not, some people still ask why they should stop smoking. Smoking causes illness and death. It's probably the most preventable lifestyle factor that is affecting human health. Smoking causes harm to every organ in the body. The heart, lungs, blood vessels, and fertility are all adversely affected by tobacco use and the chemicals in cigarettes.

Was it a remarkable stroke of fate, or destiny which brought John Jacobson and his son together? His son was brought up in a household of hate and mistrust. He left home at an early age to try and seek out some sort of happiness in New York City. During this time, his real father, a truck driver, was unaware of his son's existence. What forces were in play to give his son the idea of leaving New York and heading to Florida? This story is an example of human stamina, integrity, and love beyond our understanding.

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

I would recommend this book because it is a very emotional story with a happy ending sorts of.

Which scene was your favorite?

I liked the scene in the dinner when the son is asked to make a phone call.

If you could sum up Solex in three words, what would they be?

KILIX MATURES

What other book might you compare Solex to and why?

This is the last of three books about a boy coming of age to lead the humans that remain against the AI who have taken over the world again.

What about Joshua Bennington’s performance did you like?

Joshua Bennington is a gifted narrator and brings a lot of life to the characters in these three books.

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

This book keeps your attention and was hard to turn off.

Any additional comments?

The three books together make a wonderful story of a boy coming of age in the future. It was realy the story of humans against the AI. I would recommend the three books. They were very enjoyable.
