    Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky. In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low. And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war. Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages - not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color.

    The classic love story with a new spin...yawn. The small things about this story were interesting, but the overall premise I find to be rather over done.

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

    I consider any book in audio format to be better than a print version for me personally because I commute over an hour to school every day so having an audiobook playing keeps me from falling asleep.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Wanderer. Her non-violent spirit was really touching and to have her be so opposed to violence was a wonderful contrast to the human counterparts in this story.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Reading – was your favorite?

    Kate did an excellent job narrating all the characters. Her voice didn't distract or take away from the story at all.


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

    I have to admit there were some times I had to stop listening, like when the humans were really mean to Wanderer. Some of the parts in the book were really frustrating to sit through, so no I had to have some time away from the book so I wouldn't get too upset.


    Any additional comments?

    Meyers writing style has improved dramatically from her Twilight days. I was really surprised in the leap her skill has taken. I don't know why this book hasn't received as much attention as the Twilight series because it is written twice as well as those books...

    The war that has torn the human race apart is finally nearing its end. With most towns and cities now uninhabitable, and with the country in the grip of a savage nuclear winter, both Hater and Unchanged struggle to survive.

    Story

    Not nearly as good as the first two books in the trilogy. I felt like it was an anti-climatic ending and disappointed for having sat through the book and nothing awesome ever really happened. There was also a lot of really repetitive dialog. Really every conversation in the book could be boiled down to Danny whining that he just wants to go off in to a corner and die, and someone else saying they want him to go do something for them. Seriously, this book was set in a post apocalyptic world so I knew it would be depressing, but damn talk about annoying and abysmal. Very disappointed.

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    Wow. Amazing character dialog. Totally believable and REAL characters. I wanted so badly for things to turn out well. I really felt for these characters. In fact, I wish they were real because I would want to be their friends. Highly recommend. Kate Rudd did an amazing job narrating. She is always a pleasure to listen to.
