    Would you try another book from Suzanne Collins and/or Carolyn McCormick?

    This was a good book but I just can't seem to get into this idea of living in a world were you have these types of games. It's just not real enough for me.

    Paulo Coelho's enchanting novel has inspired a devoted following around the world. This story, dazzling in its simplicity and wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an Alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest.

  • Patient Zero: The Joe Ledger Novels, Book 1

    When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there’s either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills - and there’s nothing wrong with Joe Ledger’s skills. And that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because he’s a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can’t handle....

    Kim Venatries says: "Yes! It IS that good. Five stars and more."

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This book was boring. I like a good zombie book but the storyline was just dragged out. The performance of the audiobook was good that's why I rated it high but there was not much substance to this book.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    This is a great audiobook. I enjoyed listening to the different characters with different voices. It really brought the book to life. The story is not completely accurate of the times as many maids suffered abuse, rape, etc during these times but I did enjoy the storyline.

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    This book is literally about teenage kids that do not have much time left to live. There is not enough drama.

Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

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

    I enjoyed the music that was added to the audiobook. If I read the book it would not had have the same meaning that it does by adding the music. I enjoyed the book but I did not enjoy the ending. It does make me wonder will happen next but I think they should have given it more thought instead of just (spoiler alert) having the song played again but with another birthdate.
