    After leaving Society and desperately searching for the Rising Cassia and Ky have found what they were looking for, but at the cost of losing each other yet again: Cassia has been assigned to work for the Rising from within Society, while Ky has been stationed outside its borders. In this gripping conclusion to the Matched Trilogy, Cassia will reconcile the difficulties of challenging a life too confining, seeking a freedom she never dreamed possible, and honoring a love she cannot live without.

    Much better than book 2, and a nice way to end the series. Kate Simses rocks. Jack Riccobono as the character Ky is exhausting to listen to. I find myself rolling my eyes whenever he speaks. I think part of it is the performance and part of it is the character of Ky himself. There's only so much whining I can take.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    This is one of the better books I've listened to in a long time. It had me hooked until the end! The second one in the series is even better.

    In The Invisible Man, H. G. Wells' classic tale of sci-fi and horror, a scientist begins a reign of terror after he invents a way to become invisible. This science-fiction classic has spawned dozens of film and serial variations.

    This is a great story, but the narration isn't top notch. That being said, it's definitely worth a listen!

    Fantastic or conventional, chillingly suspenseful, or hauntingly nostalgic, each of these stories has that aura of the unexpected combined with the special ring of absolute rightness that is brilliantly, uniquely Bradbury.

    I regret downloading this. It's not Ray Bradbury's best and it's not narrated very well. I never finished listening to it.

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Beautifully written and narrated. Just when you think "what could possibly happen next?" something does. Zamperini's story is one that everyone should listen to.

    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.

    I love this book. I even like it more than the first one, and I liked the first one a lot. The way it's performed and written I feel like I can see the world the characters live in. I can't wait for book 3.

    The hotly awaited second book in the dystopian Matched trilogy.... In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky - taken by the Society to his certain death - only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake.

    Kate Simses is great, as always, but I couldn't stand Jack Riccobono. Every time he speaks as the character Ky he comes off as a whiney overly-dramatic person who is difficult to listen to. The story is good, but not as good as the first book.

    Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. So when Xander's face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is her ideal mate... until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black.

    “As I remember, I had just woken up from a nap when I decided to create the universe.” So begins Alan Lightman’s playful and profound new novel, Mr. g, the story of Creation as narrated by God. Bored with living in the shimmering Void with his bickering Uncle Deva and Aunt Penelope, Mr. g creates time, space, and matter - then moves on to stars, planets, consciousness, and finally intelligent beings with moral dilemmas.

    One of the most original books I've read in a long time. For me it's on the same level as the book Flatland.
