    When recently widowed Maggie McElroy is called to China to settle a claim against her late husbands estate, she is blindsided by the discovery that he may have led a double life. Since work is all that will keep her sane, her magazine editor assigns her to profile Sam, a half-Chinese American who is the last in a line of gifted chefs tracing back to the imperial palace. As she watches Sam gear up for Chinas Olympic culinary competition by planning the banquet of a lifetime, she begins to see past the cuisines artistry to glimpse its coherent expression of Chinese civilization.

    What did you love best about The Last Chinese Chef?

    The use of language! Mones use of verbs and descriptors made this food/mystery/romance palatable. Since listening to it we have been on a Chinese food cooking jag.


    What does Elisabeth Rodgers and James Chen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Beautifully read. One of the best readings we have heard! Lovely intonation, never over done or flat.


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

    Yes, we laughed. It brought back many memories for my husband.

    We have already shared our love of this novel with friends

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Untethered Soul to be better than the print version?

    The Untethered Soul was a fascinating book. It was very hard to listen to as the recording volume and cadence of the reader was all over the place. How ever, it was worth the listen!


    What other book might you compare The Untethered Soul to and why?

    Power and Fear


    What aspect of Peter Berkrot’s performance would you have changed?

    The cadence and articulation. The volume changes in the recording.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Choosing to be happy, Samscara's, many many ideas.

    Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena live, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge....

    What did you love best about Mockingjay?

    I liked that Mockingjay furthered and deepens the story. It is not a retell of book 1, as I thought Catching Fire tended to be. This is a story of personal choice in a political arena. It makes a great start for dialogue with young adults about the world today. It is a good listen and an engaging story.


    What other book might you compare Mockingjay to and why?

    Wicked


    What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

    Her clarity, speed and voices

    If you could sum up Catching Fire in three words, what would they be?

    Hunger Games continued


    Would you recommend Catching Fire to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes and no... I thought this was the weakest book in the trilogy. It is too similar to its predecessor to be a 5 star book, but it is a good listen and is helpful if you plan to listen to Mocking Jay. Which is a great story as is Hunger Games.


    What does Carolyn McCormick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A great read


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it while driving

    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.
