Suzanne Collins creates a world where children are pawns to provide brutal entertainment to Capital citizens. A gripping tale of survival, trust, love and fear that leaves you "hungry" for the next installment. A great book for anyone young or old!
Glenn destroys "Controlist's" logic with facts and well cited research. If you believe in the 2nd Amendment then this is a must read book. Also, parents who have kids that play video games should focus on part 2 of this book for some eye opening (and frankly repulsive) look at what content is allowed in today's video games and the psychological impact these games can have on our kids! I'd give it 10 stars if I could!!
If you are looking to invest yourself in a new multi-book series that you can enjoy with your entire family...this is a great choice! This series has it all and literally, nearly every character from literary history is given a part in this series, Shakespeare, Mars (the god of war), Joan of Ark, Excalibur, etc. A fun story that keeps you guessing all the way to the last pages of the last book. Great fun, great story!
I really thought that any book by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman would be safe to share with my children. I have purchased and loved their works for over 30 years, and never before found a profane word in any of their books. Imagine my surprise and disappointment when "f" bombs came out of my speakers while listening to this book!! I refuse to listen any further, and will no longer feel safe purchasing one of their books to share with my children. Why would you do this, Tracy??? The narrator has a very nice deep voice (reminds me of Warf on Star Trek Enterprise), but struggles greatly trying to do the female character voices..would have been much better with a male and female narrator.
This book was riveting!! As I listened to the story unfold, many times I felt myself pleading with Rachel to just run away...to help Mitch remember his little girl...and to give Cyrus a piece of his own medicine. This is a well written story of how abuse can progress from generation to generation until someone says "I'm done!". A great story, I wish hadn't ended. Well done, Glenn Beck, well done!
What an amazing and balanced story of the battle of Gettysburg! I loved how the author used characters from both sides of the battle to tell the story. Brother fighting against brother, each believing they had God on their side. The love and respect soldiers had for their Generals, the struggle to go to battle against your friends...an emotional ride worth taking!
This book is a straight forward unbiased view of the life of our first president. The author doesn't white wash or over criticize Mr. Washington but offers a fair, complete, and detailed look into the man who became a legend. I have learned a more honest approach about George Washington from this book than any previous one I've read. Very well researched, and very well written. The history, the politics, and the society of the times come to life in this biography. Scott Brick is the perfect voice for narrating this story!
