    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.

    "Similar feel of Orwell's 1984"
    Overall

    I like it...well written - good story, a "page turner" for people like myself who enjoy the futuristic genre. Although somewhat formulaic at times, I could still get lost in the unfolding events. It wasn't very deep, but certainly thought provoking. I'd place it amongst my favorite reads. One word - Entertaining.

  • A New Earth: Awakening To Your Life's Purpose

    Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one. In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. Then gently, and in very practical terms, he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are and learn to live and breathe freely.

    "Best of the Best"
    Overall

    This is the best book I've ever read (listened) in this genre. Being on the road I have an opportunity to listen to audio books continuously, and for the last twenty or so years I've listened to nearly every book you could imagine (100's) on the subject of self help, business, spiritual, etc. I remember the first book I read in this genre; my favorites, and those with the most impact on me in my life, are Wayne Dyer / Your Eroneous Zones, Gary Zukav / The Seat of the Soul, Siddhartha, Think and Grow Rich. Without a doubt, A New Earth, is the best of the best. If I were trapped on a desert island with only one book to carry me through, this is it.
