    STOP. You should not have touched this flyer with your bare hands. NO, don't put it down. It's too late. They're watching you. My name is David Wong. My best friend is John. Those names are fake. You might want to change yours. You may not want to know about the things you'll read on these pages, about the sauce, about Korrok, about the invasion, and the future. But it's too late. You touched the book. You're in the game. You're under the eye. The only defense is knowledge. You need to read this book, to the end. Even the part with the bratwurst. Why?

  • Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer

    Novella Carpenter loves cities - the culture, the crowds, the energy. At the same time, she can't shake the fact that she is the daughter of two back-to-the-land hippies who taught her to love nature and eat vegetables. Ambivalent about repeating her parents' disastrous mistakes, yet drawn to the idea of backyard self-sufficiency, Carpenter decided that it might be possible to have it both ways.

    Story

    A little TOO much information regarding raising livestock and transformation from animal to edible. Performance was very good, overall. Love the idea of urban farming, so overall this was inspirational, though my own interest is far more produce than animal raising.

    Shane Galanter is a man ready to put down roots after years of searching. But is he making the right choice? Or is there a woman somewhere who even now remembers, as does he, those long-ago days, and a love that hasn't faded with time?

    Christine says: "Beautifully crafted"
    "Terrible Narration"
    Overall

    unrealistic plot; worst narration I've heard

  • The Mighty Queens of Freeville: A Mother, a Daughter, and the Town That Raised Them

    This is the tale of Amy and her daughter and the people who helped raise them after Amy found herself a reluctant single parent. It is a story of frequent failures and surprising successes, as Amy starts and loses careers, bumbles through blind dates, and travels across the country with her daughter. All roads, though, lead them back to her hometown of Freeville (pop. 458), a tiny village where Amy's family has lived for over 200 years.

    This has been one of my favorite audio books I've heard since starting service with Audible.
