    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.

    Overall

    Some might feel this book is for the young adult reader, but I, a "mature" adult, loved it and the sequel Catching Fire. Suzanne Collins does an excellent job with pacing and intrigue. Carolyn McCormick does an excellent job with narration. You will not be disappointed and will eagerly anticipate the third installment. Well worth the purchase.

    Theirs was a marriage made in tabloid heaven, but no sooner had supermodel Laura Ayars and Celtics star David Baskin said “I do” than tragedy struck. While honeymooning on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, David went out for a swim - and never returned. Now widowed and grieving, Laura has a thousand questions and no answers. Her search for the truth will draw her into a web of lies and deception that stretches back thirty years - while on the court at the Boston Garden, a rookie phenom makes his spectacular debut....

    "Not Harlan Coben's best work."

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I usually love Coben's work and have been a faithful reader for years. This book is by far the most plodding, boring book I have ever read and I'm disappointed in it.

    Vanessa “Michael” Munroe deals in information - expensive information - working for corporations, heads of state, private clients, and anyone else who can pay for her unique brand of expertise. Born to missionary parents in lawless central Africa, Munroe took up with an infamous gunrunner and his mercenary crew when she was just fourteen. As his protégé, she earned the respect of the jungle's most dangerous men, cultivating her own reputation for years until something sent her running. After almost a decade building a new life and lucrative career from her home base in Dallas, she's never looked back. Until now....

    "Boring"
    Overall

    This book starts slow and never gets any better. Too predictable. I found it hard to finish, but have a policy to finish what I start. Spend your money elsewhere. I did enjoy the narration.

    When she asks her dependable husband, Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni, to fix her tiny white van, Precious Ramotswe fears he might just sell the vehicle and buy her something more modern. And so he does. But this will not do. So Precious tries to track her beloved van down - and learns it has already been stolen from its new owner.

    Carl says: "Fun Like Always"
    "Wonderful as ever"
    Overall

    If you are a Ma Ramotswe fan, you will be more than satisfied with this book. Lecat's narration is wonderful to listen to and the trials and tribulations of the Botswana characters is true to the previous books by McCall Smith.

    Meet Emmy, Leigh, and Adriana. Best friends since college, each is 20-something (okay, almost 30) and has seen her share of career foils and romantic foibles in the world's greatest city: New York. Having been friends for more than a decade, they know that they all need a change, so the trio makes a pact. Within one year, each woman will change the thing that most challenges her.

    John says: "Who are these characters?"
    "If you're desperate"
    Overall

    I found this book to be disappointing and I normally enjoy this type of book for light reading.
