    New York Times best-selling author Laurie R. King enjoys immense popularity and a resounding chorus of critical acclaim for her exquisite mysteries. The God of the Hive continues the thread King began in The Language of Bees, in which Mary Russell and her famous husband, Sherlock Holmes, face trouble with Scotland Yard and the deadliest of adversaries.

    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to the entire series thus far and have enjoyed each book (although some more than others).

    That said, the ending of this book is horrible. It was as if Ms. King's deadline was fast approaching, so she quickly (too quickly) wrapped up the story and slapped on "The End". It was quite unsatisfactory, unexpected and irritating.

    I was uncertain as to why the next two novels in the series received such poor reviews. However, if the treatment of this novel's ending is a preview of things to come, I'm inclined to believe the reviewers and will likely not chose to read/listen to the next two books.

    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.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Though I've never been one to follow the masses (with books or other matters) I broke down and got the audiobook. I'm glad I did. Carolyn McCormick did a great job reading.
