    Now that the werewolves have revealed themselves to humans, they can't afford any bad publicity. Infractions that could have been overlooked in the past must now be punished, and the strain of doing his father's dirty work is taking a toll on Charles. Nevertheless, Charles and Anna are sent to Boston when the FBI requests the pack's help on a local serial killer case. They quickly realize that not only the last two victims were werewolves - all of them were.

    Where does Fair Game rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Certainly this audiobooks ranks about the top 15 of all the audiobooks I've listened to so far.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I simply love Anna - I think she's a great heroine, growing in emotional strength, being a person one can easily relate to, being a wonderful partner for her husband. Although Charles follows her closely in the "liking"-scale. I appreciate especially that he is not one of this super-human, emotionally closed-off alpha heroes that kill practically without remorse or repercussions just because it is "necessary". He has his own issues with the course of the story and makes his own mistakes, but never takes it out on the heroine or someone else.


    Which character – as performed by Holter Graham – was your favorite?

    Charles


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    there were parts that made me teary-eyed, but there are also some good laughs


    Any additional comments?

    I had a few problems with understanding some characters, especially Charles, but I'm not a native speaker. In the end, I just read some passages again and then resumed listening.

    To save her only brother, Andrea Finch must face down a criminal mastermind, the FBI, and her own demons in this thrilling novel from the author of the best-selling Tracers series. Police detective Andrea Finch is a rising star in her department until a split-second decision derails her career. Disgraced and disillusioned, she’s on leave from her job when she gets an urgent call from her younger brother. She’d prefer to ignore his latest plea for cash, but this time instinct tells her something is very wrong.

    What disappointed you about Far Gone?

    I really liked the earlier books by Laura Griffin and was looking forward to Far Gone. However, although I can understand that the heroine is frightened of relationships, proud, feels responsible for her brother and all happens very quickly, I often hoped for a more professional conduct by her (since she works as a detective, too). The end, after the showdown, also seemed rushed to me.
    I also had problems with the narration. At the end of the sentence, often the voice of the narrator went up instead of down or stayed the same. Furthermore, I had difficulties discerning the parts presented from the perspective of the main heroine, Andrea, from those of another main female character, Elizabeth which was sometimes confusing until the name of the person doing s.th./thinking s.th. was mentioned.


    Would you recommend Far Gone to your friends? Why or why not?

    The suspense plot with this idea of home terrorism was quite good. I also liked the hero.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Candace Thaxton’s performances?

    Not necessarily.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment

    What did you love best about Behind the Wheel Express - French 1?

    It provides good way to refresh your knowledge of french by giving you a quick summary of the most important situations and sentences with time to repeat the answers for yourself.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The speaker speaks clear which is especially important for a language course.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The tempo of this language course is quick. Therefore, it is suitable if you already know french and just want to refresh your knowledge. If you are a beginner, the speaker is probably to quick and there is not enough time to repeat the sentences and also not enough practice-time.


    Any additional comments?

    As stated above, this language course is not suitable for beginners since most sentences are repeated only once and there is only little time foru the listener to repeat after the speaker. But if you already learned french, but have forgotten most vocabulary, this might be a good idea to start and remember. It provides a lot of the sentences which are needed on a short trip to Paris.
