Magoo Moments

Alright people,

This will be the beginning of a new endeavor and a foray into the unknown, for me, that is. Some of you will be familiar with blogging but it is all new to me and therefore, sort of an adventure. I will cover a few items, such as reviews of audio books and various experiences that only a guy who is legally blind can have. Well, that is not entirely true, now that I think about it. Some of these misadventures could have easily been had by a person who may have consumed too many adult beverages.

Recently I listened to the book, American Wife, by Tia Kyle. For those of you who don’t know about Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle, it will be an especially poignant must-read. For those who have suffered through the years of deployments or the sleepless nights of your spouse patrolling the streets of your town, you will connect with this story and the courageous woman who wrote it.

Over the last few years, I have come to realize that an audio book will be judged by the quality of the narrator and let me tell you, Tia hit this one out of the park. It can’t be easy to record an audio book (in fact, the authors themselves rarely do it), but Tia really did a great job. I couldn’t help but think while listening that no other person could have narrated this book any better. This story needed to be told in her own voice.

This is the first of hopefully many more moments from Magoo. Later.
