Audiobooks November 2012

I have listened to a lot of audiobooks during my commute to work or while doing household chores. This will be a new series of blog posts that will catalogue the audiobooks I have listened to during the month with a short description and link to the reviews. This is by no means a review of the contents of the audiobook.

No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama Bin Laden

This book is a military memoir of “Mark Owen”, a pseudonymous former member of the US SEAL Team 6. This team was involved in the operation that killed Osama Bin Laden. This book had great reviews on Audible and I think those reviews are spot on. This book was very engaging and you get a good feel about the lives of SEAL team members.

I would recommended everyone to either read or listen to this book as the unfortunate even of 911 is a part of our generation.

Killing Lincoln

A riveting historical narrative of the heart-stopping events surrounding the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and the first work of history from mega best-selling author Bill O’Rielly. This book has top reviews on Audible and they are accurate. I found the initial chapters of this book a little dull, but that may just be because I didn’t have a lot of background knowledge about the cold war and what general reference to the key characters that ended the war. Following this book, I am now looking for books that can help me know more about the war and Lincoln as a leader.

If you like the History genre, or just would like to know more about the assassination this great man, I think this book will not disappoint. As always you can either read it or listen to it.
