    One choice can transform you - or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves - and herself - while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

    I absolutely loved it! I finished it in 3 days. I think Emma Galvin is a fantastic reader and she makes it very worthwhile. I can't wait for the next book! Veronica Roth is definitely a gifted writer!

    Author Benjamin Hoff shows that the philosophy of Winnie-the-Pooh is amazingly consistent with the principles of Taoism and demonstrates how you can use these principles in your daily life. Is there such thing as a Western Taoist? Benjamin Hoff says there is, and this Taoist's favorite food is honey.

    Short and sweet for a very quick repeat if you need a refresher. The Book is a lot longer and well worth the read as well.

    He sounds natural and flows easily


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    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 about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

    The narrator's performance was great! I loved the way the voices changed between characters and how she engages you while the story unravels.


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

    There were quite a few moments in which the story moved me but I wouldn't want to elaborate to the point of giving the story away...


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great series, not the first series I've experienced, but the first one I've experienced in audio and I am very glad it was this engaging and great as it was because now I am hooked on audio books!
