    I listened to the first story without knowing it was 3 parts and then had to hurry up to find the next one and then the last one. I listened to them all in 1 day.

    Story

    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.

    Story

    It was a little too much Twilight and Catching Fire. A young girl, stronger than she thinks she is, can't believe the handsome boy(s) find her attractive, making bad choices which cause extra drama to those around her. (Let's not forget all those DRAMA conversations in her head)

    All that said, I don't regret buying it and still enjoyed the plot and story-line. I was still trapped by the story and looked for breaks so I could listen some more. The next 2 seem to get the whole "teenage girl in trouble making bad choices" worse which just like Catching Fire I bought all 3 and listened anyway. Once I post this review I am planning on buying the next one. Yes I must be a glutton for punishment. :-D

    Story

    Since its original landmark publication in 1980, A People's History of the United States has been chronicling American history from the bottom up, throwing out the official version of history taught in schools (with its emphasis on great men in high places) to focus on the street, the home, and the workplace.

    Story

    This book really rocks your world if you still believed everything they taught you at school about American History. It makes you want to go out and learn more... realizing how little we really know and brain-washed we all have been.
