A thorough defense of the 1812 war

The 1812 war has been described as a useless conflict with no distinct victor. This well researched book show the error of this conclusion and points to the impact of victory to the United States and in particular the territory of the Louisiana purchase. The reading is somewhat monotone but acceptable for non fiction.

How to mess up a James Lee Burke novel

I have read and listened to everything Burke wrote and believe he is a national treasure. Will Patton is a fantastic reader. The editor for this should be fired. It was a mess. If I wanted a musical recording I would have bought one. If it wasn't a Burke novel I would give it zero stars.

Sad that the story was so chopped up when the author and narrator have such talent

James Burke is an exceptional writer and story teller. Will Patton is an audio theater and together they are fantastic. The story line in this lagged a little but it was still a great listen. I think this is my 15th Burke book. I am addicted.

I started James Burke on audio in the middle of the series and just went back to the beginnings. He is a top quality writer but I miss Will Patton.

I am a Wayne Dyer fan and while a lot of this was repeated material, his new thought on the “shift” were refreshing. Listened to it twice on my commute and will probably do it one more time.

I read book 1 and now listened to Book 2 and found both to be fun adventures about a very sex oriented couple. It is not a strong story plot but more of a reporting on the activities of Linda and Jason. They are a couple who find great compatibility in the area of open marriage. Linda is definitely a free spirit and I found her to be softer and more gentle in book 2 than book 1. She knows how to get into trouble and loves every minute. As in book 1, this is not a audiobook for the prudish or faint at heart,, but for the rest of us it is a great listen. Anne Johnstonbrown, the narrator, did a good job of capturing the characters, especially the antics of Linda and her husband Jason. Wonder where book 3 will go?

Interesting- but not fantastic

After all the hype about the book, I guess I expected a real blockbuster. Not so much. The repetition of email addresses about drove me crazy. Interesting story, but nothing I would get overly excited about in a review. Maybe the BDSM is a secret national fetish.

I am a Dyer fan and was looking for something to take on vacation. The book is one of my favorite and I thought this might be something a little deeper. While it was well presented and contained some new information, it was basically a sound tape about the book. I liked it and it refreshed me even if it was a review. If you read the book, no real need to get this unless you are like me and love Dyer.
