    What did you like best about Catching Fire? What did you like least?

    I liked the book, the ending was pretty good and sets you up to want to listen/read the 3rd book. I could have done without the long description of the characters dress and more battle/dialogue in the arena


    What other book might you compare Catching Fire to and why?

    I have heard the whole Hunger Games series described as a mix between Survivor - the reality TV show, The Truman Show - the movie, Running Man and 1984. I would have to agree with this.


    Did Catching Fire inspire you to do anything?

    I'll probably now download the 3rd book. It's leaves a nice cliffhanger.

    To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it's where he lives with his Ma. Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it's not enough...not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, but what she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.

    Kathleen says: "A truly memorable read"
    "Be careful"
    Overall

    I could not get over the exaggerated 5 year old child's voice. It was too much. I'm sure this is a great story but the voice was too overwhelming. I would probably give it another shot if the Narrator was different.

    On April 23, 1967, Prisoner #416J, an inmate at the notorious Missouri State Penitentiary, escaped in a breadbox. Fashioning himself Eric Galt, this nondescript thief and con man - whose real name was James Earl Ray -drifted through the South, into Mexico, and then Los Angeles, where he was galvanized by George Wallace's racist presidential campaign. With relentless storytelling drive, Sides follows Galt and King as they crisscross the country, one stalking the other, until the crushing moment at the Lorraine Motel.

    E. L. Robertson says: "Who Knew"
    "Great book, surprising history"
    Overall

    As someone born in the 70s and not familiar with the manhunt for James Earl Ray, this was an excellent and eye-opening book. It keeps the listener attentive and eager for more. Excellent story and well worth the credit.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Annie M. says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "Great book"
    Overall

    A great, stirring story. Well worth the download. Well written and narrated. Will keep you fully engaged.

    Now at last Keith Richards pauses to tell his story in the most anticipated autobiography in decades. And what a story! Listening obsessively to Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters records in a coldwater flat with Mick Jagger and Brian Jones, building a sound and a band out of music they loved. Finding fame and success as a bad-boy band, only to find themselves challenged by authorities everywhere....

    Jesse says: "Ins and outs"
    "Awesome audiobook"
    Overall

    If you are a fan of rock & roll and love great storytelling you can't go wrong with this book. Great, funny and remarkable story telling by Keith Richards. A sure thing

    Prior to the U.S. entering WWII, a small coterie of British spies in Washington, D.C., was formed. They called themselves the Baker Street Irregulars after the band of street urchins who were the eyes and ears of Sherlock Holmes in some Arthur Conan Doyle stories.

    Sara says: "Spying in Washington"
    "Pretty good"
    Overall

    Very interesting story especially how these individuals became who they are where. Lagged for a bit but is recommended.
