    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.

    In your hands is the handwritten journal depicting one man's struggle for survival. Trapped in the midst of global disaster, he must make decisions; choices that ultimately mean life, or the eternal curse to walk as one of them. Enter, if you will, into the world of the undead.

    "Not the best book but hands down best with Zombies"
    Overall

    I am a sci fi fan, but not really a horror fan. This one is right up my alley! Well told, unique, and fast paced. I am looking forward to more.

    Imagine it were possible to bring the characters from a book to life. Not like when you listen to an audiobook with such enchantment that the characters seem to jump off the pages and into your bedroom...but for real. Imagine they could actually climb out of the pages and into our world. Then imagine if those characters brought their world into ours.

    Cynthia Lee Reneau says: "EXCELLENT!!"
    "good idea, good start, ok book"
    Overall

    The writing is very good, the characters are fine but nothing happens for most of the book. It starts of very intresting, but I am about 2hrs from the end and I will finish it because I used a credit on it. The movie wasnt great but it was better than the book.

    Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena live, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge....

    A User says: "Conflicting Emotions"
    "I agree with everyone else"
    Overall

    This is a horrible end to the series. I am a big fan the first book. It is in my top 5 books of all time, the second is still good, but this is not what I wanted. Even thinking it might not be as good I was still let down. Also it has a terrible ending I wish the book just ended 5 chapters earlier.

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    Frank says: "Not his best"

    Not as good as Angels and Demons but still better than most things I read.

    The Caribbean, 1665. A remote colony of the English Crown, the island of Jamaica holds out against the vast supremacy of the Spanish empire. Port Royal, its capital, is a cutthroat town of taverns, grog shops, and bawdy houses. In this steamy climate there's a living to be made, a living that can end swiftly by disease - or by dagger. For Captain Charles Hunter, gold in Spanish hands is gold for the taking, and the law of the land rests with those ruthless enough to make it.

    Eva Gannon says: "Perhaps An Early Work?"
    "lots of fun"
    Overall

    This is not a story for anyone looking for romance, or deep concepts. It is a little slow to start but very fast paced once it gets going, and is full of action and just pirate stuff. Give it a shot.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Kapila says: "6 titles in the series so far"

    I do not want this to sound cheap but really my favorite book of all time awesome writing great characters great twists only must read I have come across aside from harry potter

    In the first, desperate days of the Human-Covenant War, the UNSC has enacted the Cole Protocol to safeguard Earth and its Inner Colonies from discovery by a merciless alien foe. Many are called upon to rid the universe of lingering navigation data that would reveal the location of Earth. Among them is Navy Lieutenant Jacob Keyes. Thrust back into action after being sidelined, Keyes is saddled with a top secret mission by ONI.

    Kelly says: "Keeps you on your toes"
    "I think it's a sequel?"
    Overall

    It started out o.k. but I am finding hard to finish. I think I need the other books to fill in some back story first.

    In this genre-bending novel, among the first to have launched sci fi into literature, a group of remarkable social outcasts band together for survival and discover that their combined powers render them superhuman. Together, they may represent the next step in evolution - or the final chapter in the history of the human race. As they struggle to find whether they are meant to help humanity or destroy it, Sturgeon explores questions of power and morality, individuality and belonging.

    Jefferson says: "Bleshing with Superhuman Homo Gestalt"
    "maybe I read a different book than everyone else"
    Overall

    I got this because of the good reviews but I really didn't like it. It was very strange and it tried to be deep but just got more confusing and I couldn't care about the characters less. pass this one by.

    In a bustling metropolis where magic is outlawed, a six-year-old child is found inside a locked bank vault. A scrap of paper reveals his name: Bran Hambric. The child remembers nothing of his life before the vault. Only magic could have done this. But why would any mage risk breaking the law to place a child in a bank vault?

    I really can't put my finger on what was missing but it was an o.k. book the story was good and told pretty well but I wasn't really impressed.

    Richard Mayhew is an unassuming young businessman living in London, with a dull job and a pretty but shrewish fiancée. Then one night he stumbles upon a girl lying on the sidewalk, bleeding. He stops to help her, and his life is changed forever. Soon he finds himself living in a London most people would never have dreamed of: a city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels. It is a world that exists entirely in a subterranean labyrinth of sewer canals and abandoned subway stations.

    Thomas says: "Neverwhere is Great"
    "wow wierd"
    Overall

    The main character I really love and it is told well but the strangest thing I have ever read
