    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    What made the experience of listening to The Hunger Games the most enjoyable?

    The words of Collins mixed with the smokey expertise of McCormick made for an unparalleled match.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Hunger Games?

    Perhaps the most striking part about the book seems to be that with Collin's brilliant use of foreshadowing and other narrative techniques: no moment is less memorable than the next.


    Which character – as performed by Carolyn McCormick – was your favorite?

    I could not imagine Catnip's voice being narrated by anyone else.


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

    The book made me addicted to the story. I had to know what happens next.

    Most of us live with the stubborn idea that we'll always have tomorrow to do our most important and valuable work. We fill our days with frantic activity, bouncing from task to task, scrambling to make deadlines and chase the next promotion. But by the end of each day we're often left asking ourselves "did the work I do today really matter?" We feel the ticking of the clock, but we're stuck in first gear, unsure of the path forward and without a road map to guide us.

    Oliver says: "Deeeeep sigh. And a tired one at that."

    The narration delivers mind changing content in an engaging and memorable way. I've already listened twice and I can see myself listening again to fully internalize Henry's message!

    Conner's parents want to be rid of him because he's a troublemaker. Risa has no parents and is being unwound to cut orphanage costs. Lev's unwinding has been planned since his birth, as part of his family's strict religion. Brought together by chance, and kept together by desperation, these three unlikely companions make a harrowing cross-country journey, knowing their lives hang in the balance.

    Started off a bit slow, but definitely makes up for it in the end...
    Unwind is a good listen partly because the performance is so fitting.

    Nothing ruins a romantic evening like a brawl with lowlifes - especially when one of them later turns up dead and my date, Detective Isabella Cherabino, is the number one suspect. My history with the Atlanta PD on both sides of the law makes me an unreliable witness, so while Cherabino is suspended, I'm paying my bills by taking an FBI gig. I've been hired to play telepathic bodyguard for Tommy, the 10-year-old son of a superior court judge in Savannah presiding over the murder trial of a mob-connected mogul.

    Bunty says: "Excellent! Good plot and superb narration!"

    Another winner in the mind space series. Hughes ties up previous foreshadowing and introduces new characters and villains in an enjoyable way. Looking forward to Adam's next adventure!
