    Would you listen to Fifty Shades Darker again? Why?

    I would but I don't have time to reread books. I would rather read a new book!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love to see their romance grow and how they overcome obstacles together! It gives me butterflies in my stomach remembering how it is to be young and in love.


    What does Becca Battoe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It is interesting to hear her try to make each character have its own voice.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Mockingjay to be better than the print version?

    I prefer the audio books to print because I find a lot more time where I can listen to a book but can not read a book like on my long commutes to work.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mockingjay?

    I was surprised by the ending. Which person Katniss ended up with. But it was a good ending.


    Which character – as performed by Carolyn McCormick – was your favorite?

    Katniss was my favorite. All of her conflicting emotions and her struggle to find her strengths.


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

    When katniss's sister was killed that was very emotional.

    December is the time of the annual Ceremony at which each twelve-year-old receives a life assignment determined by the Elders. Jonas watches his friend Fiona named Caretaker of the Old and his cheerful pal Asher labeled the Assistant Director of Recreation. But Jonas has been chosen for something special. When his selection leads him to an unnamed man, the man called only the Giver, he begins to sense the dark secrets that underlie the fragile perfection of his world.

    Stephanie says: "Awesome story, suspenseful, lots to think about!"

    What did you love best about The Giver?

    I love to think about what kind of societies will be replacing us. Here is an example where every last detailed is planned for you. Everyone is happy because they don't know any better.


    Have you listened to any of Ron Rifkin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First time listening to Ron Rifkin and I enjoyed it very much.


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

    It was heartbreaking when Jonas learns about love and his family does not understand this emotion because they are limited to what feelings are allowed in this society.
