Audiobook Blog Tour and Giveaway: Football Flyboy by Lisa Reinicke

Audiobook Blog Tour: Football Flyboy by Lisa Reinicke Football Flyboy by Lisa Reinicke  

Author: Lisa Reinicke

Narrator: Richard Rieman

Length: 5 hours 15 minutes

Publisher: Our House Publications

Released: June 13, 2018

Genre: Historical Memoir

Not your typical war story. Football Flyboy examines the shaping of a good man, his family, and society under the wing of the messy cleanup as WWII winds down. If you like honest, relatable, no-nonsense people who teach you the threads of building upon relationships while making you laugh and cry, this is a story you'll enjoy! Buster, the football flyboy, was part of the Greatest Generation - a generation that was woven with courage and commitment; an era that wasn't filled with instant gratification or instant anything for that matter. Human relationships were held tightly with a determination not to give up. Old letters seeded Football Flyboy, letters that are a one-sided conversation of a man who lived for someone more important than himself. The struggles of war and his constant change of location kept him from receiving mail regularly, causing frustration and loneliness. Each letter has been unedited with grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors preserved to demonstrate the letters' authenticity. You will meet members of the author's family - in particular, her aunt Ruby. Each chapter opens with "one of the letters" and closes with Aunt Ruby's poems - highlighting the point of the chapter or just providing the listener with a smile or a tear.

Football Flyboy: First Lt. Bill Cannon, Piloting More than His Own Aircraft is a true story of the author's family and family. Lisa Reinicke discovers her father's letters to her mother during the World War Ii. Each chapter begins with one of these letters and Miss Reincke adds what was going on during that time.

I was not sure of Football Flyboy: First Lt. Bill Cannon, Piloting More than His Own Aircraft at first. The writing was a little bit different than what I am used to. Once I got used to it, I found myself laughing out loud at times and tearing up at others. The narrators of the audio version, Lisa Reinicke, Richard Rieman, added a perfect balance between the letters and the commentary.

I give Football Flyboy: First Lt. Bill Cannon, Piloting More than His Own Aircraft four stars. I thought it was a great tribute to the author's father, Bill "Buster" Cannon. I recommend it!
