    You are shrunk to the height of a nickel and thrown in a blender. The blades start moving in 60 seconds. What do you do? If you want to work at Google, or any of America's best companies, you need to have an answer to this and other puzzling questions. Are You Smart Enough to Work at Google? covers the importance of creative thinking, ways to get a leg up on the competition, what your Facebook page says about you, and much more.

    Ironically I was reading this book when I was already working at Google, I didn't read it to prepare for interviews or anything, I was just interested in the puzzles, and this book didn't disappoint...

    Aside from the puzzles the stories about the IT industry hiring processes were very interesting as well...

    So if you wanna read this book because you're trying to get hired somewhere, I can't say how much it will help, but if you're reading it for fun and brain teasers, I highly recommend it...

    One choice can transform you - or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves - and herself - while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

    Dunno why I bought this book, maybe to find out about the loose ends left from the first one, instead all I get is 11 hours of teenage drama, if you're into that stuff go ahead and read I'm not stopping you but if you're a sci-fi fan looking for a good sci-fi read you should probably go look elsewhere.

    If you've read any other Star Wars audiobooks then you're familiar with the awesome quality that comes with them, this one is no exception, an awesome performance by Daniel Davis as always, and the story itself is very satisfying...

    Fever Crumb has been adopted and raised by Dr. Crumb, a member of the Order of Engineers, where she serves as an apprentice. At a time when women are not seen as reasonable creatures, Fever is an anomaly, the only girl to serve in the Order. Soon, though, she must say good-bye to Dr. Crumb to assist archaeologist Kit Solent with a top secret project. The assignment involves a mysterious room that once belonged to Auric Godshawk, the last of the Scriven overlords, and Fever must help unlock it.

    I'm surprised no one reviewed this yet, I've had this book on my wishlist for a few months (dunno how it got there in the first place) and 2 weeks ago I decided why not and I'm glad I did...

    I bought this book after I just finished "Insurgent", the second book of "Divergent", and I must say I liked Fever Crumb alot more than both those books and even Hunger Games, what I like most about it is the no cheesy love scenes and emotional complications that spam half of the book, I grew very fond of Fever and can't wait to read more of her in the second book "A Web of Air" and the yet to be released third.

    If you liked young adult books like Maze Runner and Hunger Games, you'll likely enjoy this book too, Reeve has done an awesome job in both writing and narrating this book.

    The second novel set in the Old Republic era and based on the massively multiplayer online game Star Wars: The Old Republic ramps up the action and brings listeners face-to-face for the first time with a Sith warrior to rival the most sinister of the Order’s Dark Lords: Darth Malgus, the mysterious, masked Sith of the wildly popular “Deceived” and “Hope” game trailers. Malgus brought down the Jedi Temple on Coruscant in a brutal assault that shocked the galaxy....

    Quite unlike anything I've read so far, I've listened to the demo and have no idea what mysterious force made me get it (no, wait I do, it's the sale)

    But in any case if you're up for something different and this book is on sale again get it but don't hold me liable...:P

    Tassaa Bareesh, a matriarch in the Hutt crime cartel, is holding an auction that’s drawing attention from across the galaxy. Representatives of both the Republic and the Sith Empire are present, along with a Jedi Padawan sent to investigate, a disenfranchised trooper drummed out of the Republic’s elite Blackstar Squad, and a mysterious Mandalorian with a private agenda.

    Not much more to say, the story is epic, it starts off slow yes but that's because it has to introduce a few characters at first but when the story starts to climb it never stops until the end...

    Marc Thompson is a gift to the Star Wars fandom, his performance is flawless, the fact that he has done dozens of Star Wars audiobooks makes me wanna read them all...

    Thomas knows that Wicked can't be trusted, but they say the time for lies is over, that they've collected all they can from the Trials and now must rely on the Gladers, with full memories restored, to help them with their ultimate mission. It's up to the Gladers to complete the blueprint for the cure to the Flare with a final voluntary test. What Wicked doesn't know is that something's happened that no Trial or Variable could have foreseen. Thomas has remembered far more than they think. And he knows that he can't believe a word of what Wicked says. The time for lies is over.

    This book doesn't need a review to tell you that you should read it, if you've read Maze Runner and Scorch Trials you don't want to stop, all I can say is feel free to expect the same awesome performance from Mark Deakins and the same familiar writing of Dashner, weather it's an awesome ending or disappointing anti-climax that's for you to decide...

    Btw, there's a prequel coming...=D

In doing so, the amazing, tender and touching lives of six eccentric characters unravel before our eyes.

    Narration is awesome and the story is bound to keep you entertained for hours...

    Reading about each of the suspect's lives you sometimes get lost and forget what book your reading, but eventually when everything starts connecting you realize what a buatiful story it is...

    I downloaded an old game from my childhood called Supaplex (remade as WinPlex) and played it while listening to this book, awesome experience...

    Every night, while 16-year-old London Lane is asleep, her memory of that day is erased. In the morning, all she can “remember” are events from her future. London is used to relying on reminder notes and a trusted friend to get through the day, but things get complicated when a new boy at school enters the picture.

    I'd say this is an average YA story, nothing special about it but still enjoyable, the narration is very good, if you like YA books then you should check this book out...
