    Ralph Roberts has an incurable case of insomnia, but lack of sleep is the least of his worries. Each night he stays awake, Ralph witnesses more of the odd activity taking place in Derry after dark than he wants to know. The nice young chemist up the street beats his wife and has delusions about beings he calls "The Centurions".

    Overall

    The story is good but who ever thought that putting ear splitting screeching in the story must not have any high frequency hearing. It distracts from the story and you are constantly turning down the sound.

    Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead, serving in the household of the enigmatic Commander and his bitter wife. She may go out once a day to markets whose signs are now pictures because women are not allowed to read. She must pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, for in a time of declining birthrates her value lies in her fertility, and failure means exile to the dangerously polluted Colonies. Offred can remember a time when she lived with her husband and daughter and had a job, before she lost even her own name....

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    interesting but not a book I would read again.


    What about Claire Danes’s performance did you like?

    good


    Did The Handmaid's Tale inspire you to do anything?

    no, I found myself wondering where this book was going as I read it.

    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Divergent to be better than the print version?

    this is a good series and hold your attention all the way through. You cant just read Divergent and not want to read the next 2 books.


    What other book might you compare Divergent to and why?

    Hunger Games

    There are millions of stories in the city - some magical, some tragic, others terror-filled or triumphant. Jonah Kirk’s story is all of those things as he draws listeners into his life in the city as a young boy, introducing his indomitable grandfather, also a "piano man"; his single mother, a struggling singer; and the heroes, villains, and everyday saints and sinners who make up the fabric of the metropolis in which they live - and who will change the course of Jonah’s life forever. Welcome to The City, a place of evergreen dreams where enchantment and malice entwine.

    Pat says: "Great story once you wade through the beginning.."

    Would you listen to The City again? Why?

    This is not the scary Dean Koontz, but very good also. More on the lines of Odd. Had a nice history of black civil rights running in the back ground.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The City?

    I loved the Japanese man, you always knew he was more than he appeared.
