    Would you consider the audio edition of The Wedding to be better than the print version?

    I've not read the print version of this book. However, the audio version allows the narrator the ability to inflect emotion into the "voices" of the characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Wedding?

    When Connor returns to the castle on horseback and snatches Brenna off the ground during full gallop, he is just realizing what she means to him.


    Any additional comments?

    The first half of the story set the stage for the second half, it was snow moving and made me wonder how long it would take to get through the rest of the story. But once the second half started, I actually did listen all in one sitting. It was such a "page turner" that I ended up listening to it late into the night and left me so revved up that I couldn't fall asleep right away. I got up, worked for a couple of hours, then finally falling asleep in the wee hours of the morning. I haven't had a book do that to me in a long, long time.

    The hotly awaited second book in the dystopian Matched trilogy.... In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky - taken by the Society to his certain death - only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake.

    Story

    Continuation of "Matched", I'm still waiting to see what will happen with Cassia and Ky. Still a little one dimensional, now the story reminds me of the "Delirium" series. Young people fighting against the government.

    Cassia and Ky find each other, but somehow don't trust each other.

    A lot of death. A lot of weird government control of the masses. And we finally found out what the blue pill does… it slows you down.

    Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. So when Xander's face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is her ideal mate... until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black.

    This story reminds me a little bit of Hunger Games with the segregated cities. It was a little one dimensional sometimes. But I couldn't stop listening, waiting to see what would happen to Cassia and Ky. Xander is the nice guy next door.

    I hope the future would never turn out like this: beige and unemotional for the masses. Green, blue and red pills for everyone!

    The narrator, Kate Simses, did a great job!

But when May is unable to pay rent on the humble cottage in which she and her aunt reside, she must plead her case to the imposing viscount willing to toss two helpless women in the gutter. A wounded hero of the Peninsula campaign,Viscount Radford Evers is known for his harsh bearing, stubborn pride, and skillful avoidance of wedding vows.

    Story

    First, the narrator, Janene Jorgensen, really added a lot to the story. Great intonation. pronunciation, and she brought the period to life. She especially brought the main character to life.

    The story kept you going, waiting to see what was coming next. It's a "clean" story but with just enough sexual angst. May, the heroine, was a naive woman, yet responsible, and trying to be "modern". Radford is a man, what can I say? Not wanting to appear weak, he sometimes comes across as obtuse. But I give it to him for at least searching for the truth regarding May's family.

    Overall, it was fun.

The only requirement: she cannot tell anyone that she's from the future.

    Some stories have a way of gentling you into them, some thrust you in and it takes a minute to wrap your head around it. Maybe it was just me, but it took a minute to orient myself at the beginning of this one.

    Xenocide is the third installment of the Ender series. On Lusitania, Ender found a world where humans and pequeninos and the Hive Queen could all live together; where three very different intelligent species could find common ground at last. Or so he thought. But Lusitania also harbors the descolada, a virus which kills all humans it infects, but which the pequeninos require in order to transform into adults.

    It is a fault of mine that once I read a great book by a great author, I almost can't believe that the next book in the series will be as good as the previous one. However, Orson Scott Card delivers again. Xenocide continues the story between Ender Wiggin and the piggies on Lusitania. I enjoyed every sentence and hope that the next book in line is as good.

    I have no quarrels with the narrators, they all did an excellent job. Really, a good narrator(s) only make the story more enjoyable.

    I’m pushing aside the memory of my nightmare, pushing aside thoughts of Alex, pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my old school, push, push, push, like Raven taught me to do. The old life is dead. But the old Lena is dead too. I buried her.I left her beyond a fence, behind a wall of smoke and flame. Lauren Oliver delivers an electrifying follow-up to her acclaimed New York Times bests eller, Delirium. This riveting, brilliant novel crackles with the fire of fierce defiance, forbidden romance, and the sparks of a revolution about to ignite.

    Story

    If you haven't listened to Delirium (first book in three part series), then do yourself a favor and read it first, before Pandemonium. This is part 2 of a 3 part series.

    The narrator, Sarah Drew, is amazing and totally brings this story to life by her character voices and intonations. If nothing more, listen to this book for her. The author isn't half bad, either. LOL

    Lena is growing into adulthood in a terrible world where people don't like to "feel" things, unless they are infected with the disease of Love. The ragtag group that Lena hangs with becomes very close knit and as much of a family as they can be. Sometimes emotions run high, but satisfyingly meaty.

    Great book.

    This exciting finale to Lauren Olive's New York Times best-selling Delirium trilogy is a riveting blend of nonstop action and forbidden romance in a dystopian United States. Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has transformed. The nascent rebellion that was underway in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight. After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven.

    Story

    The emotions that are presented in this book are so very well written that you can feel where everyone is coming from and can't wait to find out where they are going. The angst and anger, broken dreams and hollow future projected put me on edge and kept me listening. Yet the personal stories and humanization of the futuristic landscape kept it on a level that I could connect with. I found that I liked the changing of the point of view narration, sometimes coming from Lena, sometimes from Hana. It wasn't a story told from just one side or one point of view. It kept the story fresh and pumping.

    Definitely worth a listen.

    Part 3 of 3 in a series.

    "Ninety-five days, and then I'll be safe. I wonder whether the procedure will hurt. I want to get it over with. It's hard to be patient. It's hard not to be afraid while I'm still uncured, though so far the deliria hasn't touched me yet. Still, I worry. They say that in the old days, love drove people to madness. The deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don't."

    Story

    OK, so I am middle aged and enjoy YA stories. Aside from that bit of personal info, I have to say that the story kept me intrigued. A society that eradicates emotions, chooses your spouse, and tells you what to do for a living. Hmmmm.... recipe for BORING! But the glimpses of "invalids" that live on the fringes and in the wilds... that injects interest into the whole scenario. Delirium is part of one of a three part series (but I like long, long stories).


    Sarah Drew is an excellent narrator who really puts her heart into her reading, bringing the story to life. It was all there for the hearing.... angst, anger, fright, contempt, worry, love. Character voices were great and believable.

    Part one? Thumbs up.

    Aside from the narrator speaking too fast, I found the story to be quite fresh. OK, time travel stories aren't new. However, half of the story is told from the male point of view -- that was refreshing.

    Can't wait to continue the story in the next book.

    It's hard for me to keep my mind on a story when an accent is faked... and this one was. I guess I would rather it be read straight without an accent that detracts. Since I was leaning toward a so-so for the story itself, I read some of the book without narration. I liked it much better.
