    For 35 girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime: the opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth... to be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels... to live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon. But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her, and leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It depends on the friend, honestly, as a 30 year old woman, I'm a bit ashamed I loved this book. But I did. So I am more than happy to tell people I loved it - but I have no idea if they would or not.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The main character is spunky. She's awesome.


    Have you listened to any of Amy Rubinate’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me mad that the next book isn't coming out until 2013. Honestly - another person reviewed this, and said wait to get it until the next book came out - which sold me on getting the book. Should have listened to her. I can't believe I have to wait a year to figure out what happens - and since it's a trilogy - probably TWO years to know the end.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to see if A. the TV show is picked up, and B. If they can roll the next two books out any faster... :)

    Story

    Paranormal private eye. Grim reaper extraordinaire. Whatever. Charley Davidson is back in Darynda Jones' Third Grave Dead Ahead! And she’s drinking copious amounts of caffeine to stay awake because, every time she closes her eyes, she sees him: Reyes Farrow, the parthuman, part-supermodel son of Satan. Yes, she did imprison him for all eternity, but come on.

    Stephanie says: "Best book yet."

    Story
    Where does Third Grave Dead Ahead rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In my top 20 (I have over 90).


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Third Grave Dead Ahead?

    If I told you that I would spoil it. I was very sad though - I cried.


    What does Lorelei King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love Lorelei King. If I'm not certain I should get a book - and I see she's the one reading it - it'll convince me to buy it. Even if I was learning towards no. She brings life to the characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A little less sure, and a little more power.


    Any additional comments?

    As stated in the title, this book made me sad. Not because it was disappointing, but I truly felt for Charlie and the loss she had to endure through out the book. I feel this one was a bit darker than the other two. It'll be interesting to see how Charlie handles everything in the next book. I just want to hug her.
