For David Goggins, childhood was a nightmare - poverty, prejudice, and physical abuse colored his days and haunted his nights. But through self-discipline, mental toughness, and hard work, Goggins transformed himself from a depressed, overweight young man with no future into a US Armed Forces icon and one of the world's top endurance athletes. The only man in history to complete elite training as a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger, and Air Force Tactical Air Controller, he went on to set records in numerous endurance events.

The premise seemed interesting, but I did not make it to the end. Goggins' early life story was quite interęsting, but once it came to the really interesting part of his military service, it did not have enough substance to keep it interesting. The advice on mentality was the usual 'if it gets hard, you get harder' stuff. Both narrators got overexcited occasionally, with Skolnick gushing about how cool this or that was. In the end I could not take it anymore, although I guess the message of the book is that in this case I should have listened to it three times, read the book and transcribed it in Mandarin for good measure! :)) Ooh-rah! Yeah!

The long-awaited first novel from the author of Tenth of December: a moving and original father-son story featuring none other than Abraham Lincoln, as well as an unforgettable cast of supporting characters, living and dead, historical and invented. February 1862. The Civil War is less than one year old. The fighting has begun in earnest, and the nation has begun to realize it is in for a long, bloody struggle. Meanwhile, President Lincoln's beloved eleven-year-old son, Willie, lies upstairs in the White House, gravely ill.

Not an easy book to listen to, with so many characters and voices, but the performances of actors are impressive. One has to admire the sheer scale and effort.

When four classmates from a small Massachusetts college move to New York to make their way, they're broke, adrift, and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition. There is kind, handsome Willem, an aspiring actor; JB, a quick-witted, sometimes cruel Brooklyn-born painter seeking entry to the art world; Malcolm, a frustrated architect at a prominent firm; and withdrawn, brilliant, enigmatic Jude, who serves as their center of gravity.

I could not make it.. Some parts are nicely written, but the sadistic details are extreme and emotionally the story is draining and ultimately there is no satisfaction in continuing. Extremely long, too..

Marie Laure lives with her father in Paris within walking distance of the Museum of Natural History where he works as the master of the locks (there are thousands of locks in the museum). When she is six, she goes blind, and her father builds her a model of their neighbourhood, every house, every manhole, so she can memorize it with her fingers and navigate the real streets with her feet and cane. When the Germans occupy Paris, father and daughter flee to Saint-Malo on the Brittany coast, where Marie-Laure's agoraphobic great uncle lives in a tall, narrow house by the sea wall.

A great story! The only annoyance is the wrong pronunciation of German and French names and words..
