    After the first wave, only darkness remains. After the second, only the lucky escape. And after the third, only the unlucky survive. After the fourth wave, only one rule applies: Trust no one. Now, it's the dawn of the fifth wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth's last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie's only hope for rescuing her brother - or even saving herself.

    What made the experience of listening to The 5th Wave the most enjoyable?

    The story and the narrator


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cassie - Great story line and good character development


    Which character – as performed by Brandon Espinoza and Phoebe Strole – was your favorite?

    Phoebe Strole - Great Voice, best woman's voice I have heard in a long time


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I won't spoil it


    Any additional comments?

    I usually stay with King or similar type books, but I took a chance on this one and glad I did. The story has a lot of parallels to other similar stories, mankind is practically gone, a few people left, but I usually can figure out what is going on and this book had so many twists that I was lost until the end. Wish it would have ended differently, but that is the way it goes

    Born to a prominent Chicago judge and his stifled socialite wife, Mia Dennett moves against the grain as a young inner-city art teacher. One night, Mia enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesn't show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. With his smooth moves and modest wit, Colin Thatcher seems at first like a safe one-night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia's life.

    From the moment radiation was discovered in the late nineteenth century, nuclear science has had a rich history of innovative scientific exploration and discovery, coupled with mistakes, accidents, and downright disasters.

    What did you love best about Atomic Accidents?

    The story Telling, the author manages to keep it understandable and funny at the sametime with his sarcastic undertones.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    N/A


    Which character – as performed by Tom Weiner – was your favorite?

    N/A


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

    It did make me laugh at times, but it really opens your eyes to nuclear power. I was amazed at all the experiments that have occurred since we discovered it.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a page turner, even the opening was great. There is a lot of good information in this book, especially the human performance aspect, there a lot of great examples of human errors that could be used in safety meetings, which I have done. I have even googled much of the reported disasters in this book to get more information. I am normally a fiction reader, who likes end of world types of books, but this non-fiction book gives you the same flavor and keeps you interested.
