    Solving the Maze was supposed to be the end. No more puzzles. No more variables. And no more running. Thomas was sure that escape meant he and the Gladers would get their lives back. But no one really knew what sort of life they were going back to. In the Maze, life was easy... until Teresa triggered the end. In the world outside the Maze, however, the end was triggered long ago. Burned by sun flares and baked by a new, brutal climate, the earth is a wasteland....

    Story

    I loved that this book picked up right where the last stopped. Overall it was a good book. Much like the first book, I found myself enthralled in the story line, wondering who was actually good and who was actually evil. My only complaint would be that the story lulls a few times throughout. Fortunately the author picks pace back up after not too long, but I felt some things could have been condensed. I would recommend this book though to anyone that enjoys books with memorable characters, action and suspense, or stories set in a post-apocalyptic setting.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Story

    First of all, I just love Tina Fey. So if you're not a big fan, don't read it. If you are a fan, or are sort of a fan, or would like to be a fan, then READ IT! Better yet, listen to it via Audible because Tina Fey narrates it. This book is laugh out loud funny and the humor is only accentuated by Tina. By having the author read the book, you experience the story just as she intended. Her inflection of voice and tone are done brilliantly. It's several hours of Tina at her finest. Probably the best memoir I've read. And by probably, I mean it is the best memoir I've read. If you have even the smallest of senses of humor, you'll be glad you purchased this book.

    When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he's not alone. When the lift's doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade - a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.

    Story

    I was locked into this book from the very beginning. I was glad I started this book on a long road trip so I was able to listen to nearly the whole book in one setting. I found the characters endearing and the plot line believable. I would recommend this book to any listeners who also enjoyed books like The Hunger Games, The Host, Delirium, or any stories set in a post-apocalyptic world.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Story

    This book will have you captured by and engrossed into the story line very quickly. The story takes several turns that I never expected, and these turns only take the excitement dial up a notch. Gillian has created two characters that you will love to hate. I found that I could relate to both in some aspects, while being totally appalled by their behavior in others. I would definitely recommend this book to others. The narration is also one of the better performances I have listened to.

    You’ve lost your job as a department store lingerie buyer, your car’s been repossessed, and most of your furniture and small appliances have been sold off to pay last month’s rent. Now the rent is due again. And you live in New Jersey. What do you do? If you’re Stephanie Plum, you become a bounty hunter. But not just a nickel-and-dime bounty hunter; you go after the big money. That means a cop gone bad. And not just any cop. She goes after Joe Morelli, a disgraced former vice cop who is also the man that took her virginity....

    Pat H. says: "NOT THE GREATEST."

    Story
    If you could sum up One for the Money in three words, what would they be?

    This book kept me reeled in from the beginning. The Stephanie Plum character is charming, funny, and easy to love. I found myself relating to some of her irrational rants! I thought C.J. Critt did a wonderful job narrating! She adds emphasis at just the right moments and her pauses make a great effect. I see that some other critics have said they thought she sounded like an old lady smoker, but I never caught that vibe. I would certainly recommend this audiobook to my friends!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the twists and turns and the sexual tension building between Stephanie and Joe Moreli.
