I've been an audiobook listener for many years. This book won't stand out in my memory for any long period of time. While the author wrote an interesting tale, it was torn to shreds in it's presentation by the narrator. The narrator of this story did such a bad job I honestly feel sorry for Mr. North. The narrator reminded me of a middle school kid struggling through a drama club play rehearsal while reading the lines right off the script. He stumbled through sentences, couldn't pronounce words, and gave the general impression that he didn't prepare. I feel if another narrator would have read the book, it would have been more interesting. I'm sorry, but there isn't much more to say than that.

Would you try another book from Oliver North and/or Peyton Tochterman?
Oliver North, yes. Peyton Tochterman, no.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
The plot was very interesting and kept me going despite the agony of listening to the slow, stilted reading of the narrator. I mean, who talks like that??
What didn’t you like about Peyton Tochterman’s performance?
His reading was very slow. He had no appropriate voices for the different characters. He had no style at all for the military dialogue. The way he said "Local" at the end of every time stamp for each chapter segment was just silly. The way he stilted through the pronunciations of the many military and government acronyms was just painful. It was a very interesting story that was just ruined by this reading.
Do you think Heroes Proved needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
I think a follow-up story would be very interesting, but I will read it myself rather than listen to Peyton Tochterman again. Get George Guidall to read it.
