    Until the day I met John Smith, Number Four, I'd been on the run alone, hiding and fighting to stay alive. Together, we are much more powerful. But it could only last so long before we had to separate to find the others.... I went to Spain to find Seven, and I found even more, including a tenth member of the Garde who escaped from Lorien alive. Ella is younger than the rest of us, but just as brave. Now we're looking for the others - including John. But so are they....

    It's Hiccup's birthday, but that's not going to keep him from getting into trouble. To save his dragon, Toothless, from being banished, Hiccup must sneak into the Meathead Public Library and steal the Viking's most sacred book. But the Vikings see books as a dangerous influence, and keep them locked up and under heavy guard. To save his friend, Hiccup must brave the Hairy Scary Librarian and his dreadful army of Meathead Warriors and face off against the formidable Driller-Dragons.

    Where does How to Train Your Dragon: A Hero's Guide to Deadly Dragons rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The narrator & music is excellent. The story is delightful & the characters makes me laugh so hard at times. It is worth the listening to over & over again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hiccup is so sarcastic & kind hearted & intelligent that he is a character that I greatly enjoy following his story from book to book.


    What does David Tennant bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His viking accent & voice inflections & total immersion into narrating this story make the story even more delightful.


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

    It has many funny moments.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    In Lisa Gardner’s first-ever short story following thirteen bestselling novels, The 7th Month takes listeners between the books and into a day in the life of Boston Detective D. D. Warren. In her seventh month of pregnancy, D.D. should be taking it easy. Instead, she accepts a small consulting role on the set of a serial killer film shooting in Boston.

    Many consider this rich social commentary to be Jane Austen's finest novel. It is certainly among her more famous ones. Austen sets her entertaining study of manners and misconceptions against the backdrop of a class-conscious society in 18th-century England.

    She brought the book alive with her character voices.

    If you love Pride & Prejudice, this is a must listen to audiobook.
