    What other book might you compare Animal, Vegetable, Miracle to and why?

    Botany of Desire


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    I enjoyed the different prespecitives from the daughter and mother.


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

    Loved the discoveries made along the way and how they grew into the changes and worked things into their life


    Any additional comments?

    As an avid organic gardner and now chicken raiser (eggs only thus far) I think so much about the soil growing the soil and how to work with the plants animals and my climate. I loved hearing all the sustanable learning that went on in this book. Yes I also make my own cheese, can, freeze and dry my foods and enjoyed learning anothers personal experiences in these areas and how proud they also are of their stores.

    Gunslinger Caden Miller's compadres are becoming a bit too domesticated for his liking. So he's off to Kansas territory to carve out a living and a space of his own - alone, just the way he likes it. Maddie O'Hare has been drawn to Caden ever since she escaped to the Hell's Eight compound from the brothel where she was born and raised. And she's not ready to let him go so easily…until she's captured by his new neighbors.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. I was so looking forward to this book and will try again. The story was not as good but could have been ...not as hot either....but the Narrator....horrible little girl voice for Maddie. Yuck. And the Why why why is so grating on my nerves in this book ....develop more dialog and playfulness.


    If you’ve listened to books by Sarah McCarty before, how does this one compare?

    Not her best ...not as hot and not well developed.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Narrator....horrible little girl voice for Maddie

    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.

    What made the experience of listening to The Hunger Games the most enjoyable?

    Nice story but I do want to see the main character grow more ...hopefully she does in the next book.
