Five years ago, the US Space Force became a reality. And while those writing the checks took things very seriously, the other military branches did not. As a result, Space Force was populated by undesirables: men and women who made too many mistakes, didn't follow the rules, or...slept with the wrong general's daughter. Three times. On camera. It was a mistake, okay? My name is Captain Ethan Stone, a decorated member of SEAL Team Six turned Space Force "recruit".

This book was a blast to listen to and to experience. This is a crazy little story which sets up tons of funny and entertaining scenes that are the real stars of this book. The humor, character interactions and great narration are what make this a really enjoyable listening experience. The humor is off the wall just like some of the crazy scenarios that play out, and it hit the right notes for me.

The narration by Jeffrey Kafer, Emily Woo Zeller, and Machelle Williams is really great and I thought they all did an incredible job. I am familiar with Jeffrey Kafer and thoroughly enjoy his work, but I thought Emily Zeller and Machelle Williams brought a great dynamic to the collaboration and made for an entertaining and enjoyable experience. I would recommend the book just for the narration, let alone the characters and book itself.

Overall it is a fun sci-fi crazy land filled with nutty characters and scenes, and all narrated excellently.

Had never read anything by this author before or knew anything about this series before going into it and had an absolute blast. Tipping my toe back into urban fantasy again with these stories fun characters and the great world was a great time. It touches on plenty of things that are familiar but makes them its own and had an exciting pace that kept me listening throughout.

The narration by Luke Daniels is of course amazing. He has a great range of voices and great timing and pacing and really brings this book to life. A great world with an entertaining main character makes me look forward to more from this series.

I have been using my instant pot for primarily cooking rice the last few years and thought I would dabble in some recipes for it. This book has a lot of easy to follow and great tasting recipes that are quickly made and easily prepared. The narration is very clear and easy to follow, describing everything so that you can prep while listening. I like these audio cookbooks because they give me ideas without having to sift through recipes myself and allow me to cook while I listen.

Once or twice a week I will make a smoothie in the morning and had generally always made some variant of the same kind onf shake, and was looking to see if this book would give me some other ideas. It definitely provided me with some other great tasting shakes, but it also had some that contain dietary things that I wasn't putting into my shakes to being with. They were all easy to prep for and make, and turned out pretty well; I will be using some of them regularly. Any vessel that can get me fruits, vegetables and other nutrients that tastes good is golden in my book.

Having gotten an air fryer a few years back and never making anything more than french fries or some chicken in it, this cookbook seemed like a great thing to just get some ideas from. Although you can look up a recipe for pretty much anything nowadays if you aren't sure what to look up for an air fryer this was a great resource to grab some dishes from. I enjoyed the chicken kiev and the roasted carrots, and plan to try quite a few more in the book over time. The narration is okay but has some background noises and such, but I supposed those don't really matter for a cookbook that you will probably have on in the background while prepping the food. A good little cookbook for anyone that owns an air fryer.

Having never made any soup beyond a chicken noodle, I thought this would be an interesting experiment for me to entertain. I found actually quite a few that I enjoyed both preparing and obviously consuming. The whole soup making process is a lot simpler than I had thought, and this book lays out how to make quite a few. The narration by Betty Johnson is overall pretty good, although there was some background noise here and there for me, that doesn't really matter in a cookbook. No matter, if you are pressed for time or materials soup, is something I can enjoy, and this book has some great ones.

This contains some great practical advice to help you start planning your retirement or get an idea of what is needed to do so. In such a relatively short book, we are getting an outline or general starting point to help build upon and gather momentum in the goal that is a healthy retirement. I think it is full of useful advice and pair that with a more in-depth financial look at what is involved (which is suggested in the book) and I think it lays a good foundation. The narration is solid and well delivered by Julie Slater and kept me engaged throughout. Thought it was an engaging and positive book on what many dread or fear.

This is a great little book that introduces and helps get you going with saving money, paying off debts and preparing for the future. It is book one in what seems to be a series on saving and procuring money to ensure a healthy future. As far as being a little starting book it is short and concise, with solid information. It isn't jam-packed with information, but it has a good amount for the half hour it takes to blast through it. The narration is solid and brings all the information across clearly and at a good pace.
