    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.

    I read this book last summer, its one of those books that you get from the library and you love it so much you dont want to return it.When it went on sale last week I jumped on the chance to listen to it.It was great.At first the narrators voice seemed alittle too mature to be Katniss but I got used to it.Ive also read book 2 and am impatiently waiting on 3.SPOILER--hope she ends up with Peeta!

    When Park Ranger Anna Pigeon answers a call to historic Mt. Locust, once a producing plantation and inn on Mississippi's Natchez Trace Parkway, the last thing she expects to encounter is a naked and very dead man. His body bears what looks like the brutal scars of an S&M ritual gone terribly wrong. When the deceased turned out to be the brother of a candidate for the office of local sheriff, a host of cover-ups, hidden agendas, old allegiances, and buried secrets begins to emerge.

    Loved this book!

    If your old enough to remember the movie Red Dawn and liked it... you should really enjoy this.If your too young for that then Hunger Games fans should enjoy also.
    2 Warnings 1-This is YA (PG13 for violence/teen drama) 2-This book does leave you hanging(1st in 7-8 books)
    ++This book is currently being made into a movie.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    To those of you thinking of getting this book---
    DO NOT get this book if...

    you want Scifi/Fantasy.It is not SF/F.
    you dont want to hear sex.Described & Implied.
    OR will be very disturbed by rape & violence.
    YOUVE BEEN WARNED!
    This is a long book.Its sets the stage for many to follow.I have read all but the last 2.They are all GREAT and BRUTAL.After listening to Outlander I realize what a great writer DG is and what a great narrator DP is.You meet characters in this book that come back in book 2,3,4 ect.Did she think the whole thing out before she wrote?She does describe alot,goes into detail of life in the 1700s.That was a violent time in history (rape,violence,sickness,murder,superstition,highlander politics...this book has all these) .BUT all and all THIS IS A HISTORICAL ROMANCE! Jamie and Claire.Claire and Jamie. WHAT they do and give up to be together! If this is your kind of book,Youll be hooked!

    Set in a world where some people are born with a Grace - a unique, sometimes uncanny, gift - this is the story of Katsa, whose Grace, demonstrated at an uncomfortably early age, is for killing. This makes her a perfect tool for her uncle, King Randa But Katsa chafes at the way she is being used - and even more at the injustices she sees around her.Then she meets Prince Po, who has a Grace to match hers...

    I got this book because of the good ratings.However the reviews are mixed.This is a young ADULT novel.The premise is new and the plot was good.Things did wrap up a little too easy and after the inital issue was taken care of the book still had another hour or so that was kinda slow. Comments have been made about the sex and anti-marriage theme.Katsa has been controlled all her life because of her "grace".She is finally free and does not want to marry but she does fall in love and is committed to Po.AFTER they fall in love they do have sex, which is MOSTLY only implied.This book has several violent episodes.Again---young ADULT.

    I did not care for the full cast audio, one good female narrator would have been better.Reason--Katsa is the main player,she is female,most of the thoughts and feelings were hers.The music was distracting and I jumped almost every time it came on.

    Though a small town at heart, Lawrenceton, Georgia, has its dark side - and its crime buffs. One of them is librarian Aurora "Roe" Teagarden, a member of the Real Murders Club, which meets once a month to analyze famous cases. It's a harmless pastime - until the night she finds a member killed in a manner that eerily resembles the crime the club was about to discuss.

    Being a fan of Charlaine Harris,I have READ Sookie,Lily and Harper.I never had must interest in Aurora Teagarden and I dont know why.When this book when on sale I took the chance and Im sooooo glad I did.This book is ....if a book can be CUTE.
    No complex plot just fun.Auroras thoughts on herself and others are hilarious.The narrator was
    great!Therese Plummer is Aurora Teagarden.This book does not inspire deep reflection or life changing revelation it is entertainment only and it does that well.

    My only wish is that Audible would have a sale such as 2 BOOKS IN A SERIES FOR 1 CREDIT--HINT

    Kat Richardson excels at creating vivid, fast-moving novels that blend urban fantasy with paranormal mystery. In Greywalker, Seattle P.I. Harper Blaine is viciously attacked and murdered - but after exactly two minutes, somehow she returns to life. Now she's seeing strange things all around her - dark visions from the shadow world - and living a normal life may no longer be possible no matter how hard she tries.

    This book was in my wish list,it is 2 credits so I let it sit there.It went on sale so I got it for 5$.Im glad I waited(saved my credits)! It was OK.Its the first book in the Greywalker series and is dedicated to alot of setup for that series.How Harper became a Greywalker,what is a Greywalker,what she can and cannot do.I love books in a series, I love getting to know the characters so I will at some point get book 2.I hope its better now that the ground work is laid.

    Now, I hate to pick on the narration but this is the MAIN problem with this book.The supporting casts voices were bad.Harper was fine.The rest either sounded like someone with the croup or any one of the seven dwarfs( sleepy, dopey, ect)I know the narrator changes tone so the listner can distinguish characters but some of these were really bad.

    In Mary's world there are simple truths. The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent. And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. But, slowly, Mary's truths are failing her. She's learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness.

    Like most of us I try to use my credits wisely.I check out reviews from several sites before I pick a book.Most of the reviews on Audible are about not only the book but also the narration.If the reviewers hate the narration it affects the review of the book.I think that has happened with this book.I liked the narrator.Her voice was clear and with the exception of 1 character (a 6yo boy) the male roles did not sound ridiculous---always a plus!Some reviews stated that Mary was selfish,she was---this is HER STORY!Shes a single minded anti-hero.Her main goals---avoid zombies,get to the ocean alive and bite free.Drags alittle during travel but never enough to lose interest.Book 2 comes out in March so this book stops short of a complete ending for Mary.

    Loup Garron was born and raised in Santa Olivia, an isolated, disenfranchised town next to a U.S. military base inside a demilitarized buffer zone between Texas and Mexico. A fugitive "Wolf-Man" who had a love affair with a local woman, Loup's father was one of a group of men genetically manipulated and used by the U.S. government as a weapon. The "Wolf-Men" were engineered to have superhuman strength, speed, sensory capability, stamina, and a total lack of fear.

    This was my first audiobook so I wanted to pick something I knew I would like.Well, I did and I didnt. This book is nothing like the Kushiel books,if thats what your looking for..dont get this book.To me this book is total drama with very little adventure.I liked the readers voice but I started wishing she would just read and not change tone for the male roles.The f word was used overmuch.Loup had little emotion,when her love done her wrong you got nothing...no anger just "I understand".The description of the book is slightly misleading but the story was good and very different.If a Santa Olivia 2 comes out I will want to read it just to see what happens next.
