    This exciting finale to Lauren Olive's New York Times best-selling Delirium trilogy is a riveting blend of nonstop action and forbidden romance in a dystopian United States. Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has transformed. The nascent rebellion that was underway in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight. After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven.

    I was looking forward to this third in the trilogy. What a disappointment! The series started off by capturing my interest with an imaginative and clever story, and ended with a fizzle. The story line, if there was one, was weak. There were a few interesting moments (emphasis on few) but overall, it was long-winded blather, ending with an overdone preachy monologue. Don't waste your time or your credits. In fact, I'm requesting that my credit be refunded.

    All the stories in this collection from Stephen King are related to the Vietnam War. King fans will recognize echoes of The Dark Tower series in the collection's first story, "Low Men in Yellow Coats." As the characters develop over the next four stories, King's version of the Vietnam War becomes one of his most frightening tales ever.

    Odd characters, mildly interesting story. I found myself looking for excuses to stop listening. Wouldn't recommend unless you are a diehard Stephen King fan.

    Eight years ago, a man walked five-year-old Hannah out the front doors of her school and spirited her over the Mexican border, taking her into the world of a cult known as The Chosen. For eight years, followers of The Prophet have hidden the child, moving her from country to country, shielding the man who stole her. Now, those who’ve searched the longest know where to find her.

    After reading the Millenium series, I was looking for another strong female character like Lisbeth Salander, and found her in Vanessa Michael Munroe. The plot of this book was tightly woven, the characters were interesting and almost totally believable, and the view into a religious cult was fascinating. Can't wait for the third in the series.
