A sexually charged and wickedly funny thriller starring Tony Award-winning actor Billy Crudup, Harry Clarke is the story of a shy Midwestern man leading an outrageous double life as the titular cocky Londoner. Moving to New York City and presenting himself as an Englishman, he charms his way into a wealthy family's life as the seductive and precocious Harry, whose increasingly risky and dangerous behavior threatens to undo more than his persona.

didn't build on the previous 2 books. In fact contradicts the other two in some ways. was more of an attempt to build tension so you'd but the fourth when it comes out. Very very very disappointing.

  • Adventures from the Life of an American Hunter

Steven Rinella grew up in Twin Lake, Michigan, the son of a hunter who taught his three sons to love the natural world the way he did. As a child, Rinella devoured stories of the American wilderness, especially the exploits of his hero, Daniel Boone. He began fishing at the age of three and shot his first squirrel at eight and his first deer at thirteen. He chose the colleges he went to by their proximity to good hunting ground, and he experimented with living solely off wild meat. As an adult, he feeds his family from the food he hunts.

  • 5 out of 5 stars
  • Great book, needs to be voiced by Rinella himself.

great book, just wish the narrator was better or knew how to pronounce things correctly. Oddly, this is a problem with many audio books.

the story is at least average with a different narrator. I had read the book previously and really enjoy the series. this narrator makes even the best parts dull and I cringe when he tries to do a woman's voice

When society ceases to exist, who can you trust? After the collapse of the nation's power grid, America is under martial law - and safety is an illusion. As violence erupts around him, Morgan Carter faces one of his most difficult decisions yet: whether to stay and defend his home, or move to a more isolated area, away from the prying eyes of the government. He and his family are hesitant to leave their beloved Lake County, but with increasingly suspicious activities happening in a nearby refugee camp, all signs point towards defecting.

I love the characters and the series but this story was just a speed bump. didn't move us forward really, just told us that we need to read the next book to get the story this one should have been.

First half of the book is about why you should be afraid of an emp or grid down scenario. Very long, very drawn out, and very preachy.
Second half is about possible stuff you have or ways to organize yourself. There is SOME good stuff. But it seems like it's cut and paste from multiple sources, there is none of the been there done that feel you get from a competent outdoors man or soldier. There is almost a feeling of ridiculous fantasy to his suppositions.
Last chapter is a mini commercial encouraging you to hire him as a consultant.
No offence, but him being a veteran seems suspiciously like he was only behind the wire. A desk man's approach.
For instance, gun recommendations for "wet work". Statements that freeze dried food doesn't save you weight because you still have to add water (yeah, we all know it needs water, which you can obtain where you stop to eat -this is why backpackers use it), his proposition that survival saws like the mini chainsaws aren't garbage (every single one will break and they all work like garbage no matter how much you pay.)
If you pay attention, he received air force training, but apart from training, did he have real life experience? Oddly, that never comes up.....
Best wishes and good luck to everyone!
