    A journalist and fiction author, Tom Angleberger has a knack for capturing the lives of today’s youth. In The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, socially awkward Dwight shows up to school one morning waving a green finger puppet. Strange enough, but then Dwight starts talking in a funny voice and doling out advice. Is it the puppet, or is it Dwight? And will paper Yoda be able to help Dwight convince the girl of his dreams to go to the big dance with him?

    I would have taken Eric in too. Still think Alcide and Sookie could work, but what do I know.

    A call from a distraught wife, and another from Lt Murphy of the Chicago PD Special Investigation Unit makes Harry believe things are looking up, but they are about to get worse, much worse. Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters.

    Tom says: "Excellent Story, Distracting Sound Engineering"

    Story
    If you could sum up Storm Front in three words, what would they be?

    Three words, no.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Taking Dresden out of the equation, Bob. I wish I had a friend like Bob.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I kept rewinding the description of how to catch a fairy. I fell for Butcher's words. I think I actually held my breath from the moment Dresden began talking about the moonlight until Toot-Toot finished the bread.

    It helps that James Marster's voice is so perfect.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish the tv series had longer legs. If anyone is interested in trying again, I'll help.

    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.

    Story
    What did you love best about The Hunger Games?

    The story was original and captivating.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Katniss of course. Her inexperiance is refreshing. Her courage is admirable.


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

    Her voice relfected the scene. She seemed to enjoy reading the story herself.


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

    When Rue and Katniss curled up in the same sleeping bag, deciding that they could trust one another, and simply fell asleep.
