    When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he's not alone. When the lift's doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade - a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.

    Word Nerd says: "Great Book"
    "Great Storyline and a Fun Read"
    Overall

    Being 38 years old, I'm not exactly the author's primary target audience, nonetheless, I found this book a very fun listen. I found myself sitting in my car for quite some time just to hear a bit more before having to go into work or into a store. The story flows well, without any real dragging portions. I did find myself predicting the story line a tad bit on several occasions, but Dashner usually threw in a bit of a twist that kept me on the edge of my seat. This is definitely a book that will have you coming back for part two when it is released.

    Story

    He wasn't born with the name Maniac Magee. He came into this world named Jeffrey Lionel Magee, but when his parents died and his life changed, so did his name. And Maniac Magee became a legend. Even today kids talk about how fast he could run; about how he hit an inside-the-park "frog" homer; about how no knot, no matter how snarled, would stay that way once he began to untie it. But the thing Maniac Magee is best known for is what he did for the kids from the East Side and those from the West Side.

    Craig says: "Excellent Middle School Story"
    "Fun story, dragged down by too much agenda..."
    Overall

    The story line is good, but the author has such an obvious agenda to preach that the story gets lost in the background noise at times.

    Story

    Uncle Tom is a high-minded, devoutly Christian black slave in an "humane" Southern family, the Shelbys. But, when the Shelbys are beset by financial difficulties, Tom is sold to a heartless slave trader. Hailed by Tolstoy as "one of the greatest productions of the human mind," this story describes Uncle Tom's trials, suffering, and religious fortitude.

    Brenda says: "Very Enlightening and Enjoyable"
    "Poor Audio Quality"
    Overall

    The audio quality (8 KHz) for this book is so poor that I can't listen to it. It sounds like someone is talking through a tin can on a string. For some reason this book isn't available in a decent quality. Very disappointed.
