    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.

    I loved this story and I loved the story teller. It was a combo that made me not want to quit listening.

    In London’s Pimlico neighborhood lies a tenement described in architectural guides as “a building of no interest whatsoever.” But the residents of Corduroy Mansions—including a literary agent, a wine merchant, a thoroughly unpleasant member of Parliament, and a vegetarian dog—are a rather fascinating lot.

    This book was boring. It is the only audible book I did not finish.

    Ray Bradbury's moving recollection of a vanished golden era remains one of his most enchanting novels. Dandelion Wine stands out in the Bradbury literary canon as the author's most deeply personal work, a semi-autobiographical recollection of a magical small-town summer in 1928.

    Christopher says: "Does not translate well into an audible book"
    "Taste of Summer."

    Story

    I listened to this book, because both of my kids read each summer. Bradbury does a great job of capturing the feeling of summer. People of all ages can relate to the smell of cut grass, the taste of ice-cream on a hot day, catching fireflies, picking berries, and all the other typical events of summer. The vivid images in the book brought me close to the enjoyable summer days of my childhood. Dandelion Wine touches on some important aspects of life such as growing up and the reality of death. It was a good book, but at some parts it was difficult to remain interested. It would have been better if there was a little more organization and flow to the book. It was all over the place which at times made it hard to follow.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Kapila says: "6 titles in the series so far"
    "Very intriguing."

    I listening to this book on my son's recommendation. He said it was one of his favorite books. I loved it!

    Andrew "Ender" Wiggin was not the only child in the Battle School; he was just the best of the best. In this book, Card tells the story of another of those precocious generals, the one they called Bean, the one who became Ender's right hand, part of his team, in the final battle against the Buggers. Bean's past was a battle just to survive. His success brought him to the attention of the Battle School's recruiters.

    L. says: "Totally Card"
    "Awesome listen."
    Overall

    I rented this book on my son's recommendation. He told me it was one of the books in his top ten list. I enjoyed this book and the narrators immensely. The story held me captive through out. I usually listen to audio books when I am walking or on the treadmill. I found myself listening to this book any chance I could.

    Barry Laverty, M.B., can barely find the village of Ballybucklebo on a map when he first sets out to seek gainful employment there, but already he knows that there is nowhere he would rather live than in the emerald hills and dales of Northern Ireland. The proud owner of a spanking-new medical degree and little else in the way of worldly possessions, Barry jumps at the chance to secure a position as an assistant in a small rural practice.

    Lavonne says: "Delightful Entertainment"
    "Just what the doctor ordered."
    Overall

    This book is just what I was looking for. Great cast of characters. I love the story and the narrator is awesome!

    Since he was a boy growing up in Mississippi, Father Tim has lived what he calls "the life of the mind". Except for cooking and gardening and washing his dog, he never learned to savor the work of his hands. And then he finds a derelict nativity scene: twenty figures, including a flock of sheep, that have suffered the indignities of time and neglect.

    Bob says: "Shepherds Abiding"
    "Very touching story."
    Overall

    I love the Mitford books, and this one is no exception. I find myself not even caring about how slow the traffic is when I'm listening.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Pamela Murphy says: "COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN"
    "dark"
    Overall

    Not sure why this is "the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" as she wasn't the main character. This story was dark and disturbing.

    Bram Stoker's masterpiece is at the same time intensely romantic and very modern. It unfolds the story of a Transylvanian Don Juan, the aristocratic Count Dracula who preys on desirous damsels.

    I loved listening to this book. Greg Wise is a great narrator.
