Cracking good laugh!

Where does Combat and Other Shenanigans rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's up there with the best of them. A little short but very entertaining. It's like a tube of Pringles, once you start you just can't stop!

Who was your favorite character and why?

It's not so much a favourite character as it was written in the first person. But the humour and camaraderie of the book makes for great reading.

What does Corey M. Snow bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He gives a little life to the book in places where it could be hard to tell if it's a joke or not, having said that with a military background I get the humour in the book

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Just the humour and the fact it was written without needing to big it up in the action scenes.

Any additional comments?

At 5 hours it's a little short, knowing how much trouble I managed to get myself into without trying (in a fun way) whilst on tour I would have liked this to be longer.
