    In the waning days of World War II, the Japanese tried a last desperate measure, a different kind of kamikaze mission, this one carried out by two submarines bound for the west coast of the United States, their cargo a revolutionary new strain of deadly virus.

    Story

    Very disappointing. This is my second Clive Cussler book. I first listened to the Chase, and I was hooked, engaged, and surprised throughout. Black Wind is formulaic- everything that happens is very predictable. I don't even mind that type of action at times, however, the worst part about this book were the characters. Every character had very similar personalities with the exact same sense of humor. I started playing a game of trying to guess the next joke that a character would attempt.

    After his last run-in with the fairies, Artemis Fowl had his mind wiped of his memories of the world below ground. Any goodness he had grudgingly learned is now gone, and the young genius has reverted to his criminal lifestyle.

    Story

    Although this book is geared towards teenagers it is still an entertaining and enjoyable read. Artemis Fowl the boy genius and thief is at it again. This time he is trying to be the best art thief somehow gets wrongfully accused for another scheme that reconnects him with the fairy people. Now they must try and save the fairy and human people. This is the 4th book in a 7 book series. I have been listening to them and have loved the narrators European accent.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    "Inspired by The Hunger Games"

    Story

    The book definitely felt like it was inspired by The Hunger Games, it had a similar plot with a corrupt government training children to fight and some kids starting to rebel. It was very well written and the words paint such detailed pictures in my mind. It is also a page turner. Although, I am more of a "Jane Austen" kind of girl and don't usually like the violence, it was still enjoyable to read and I will finish the series.

    First published in 1865, these endearing tales of an imaginative child's dream world by Lewis Carroll, pen name for Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, are written with charming simplicity. While delighting children with a heroine who represents their own thoughts and feelings about growing up, the tale is appreciated by adults as a gentle satire on education, politics, literature, and Victorian life in general.

    Story

    Very fun story. I have seen various Alice in Wonderland movies, and none of them capture Lewis Carrolls whimsy, entertainment, and insight like the book. It is a fun often non-sensical adventure with a lot of clever insights such as Alice "often giving herself good advice, but very seldom following it." All the characters are interesting, but Carroll creates his most intriguing character in Alice. She is precocious but loveable and a very deep thinker- at least in her own mind.
