    What disappointed you about Rise?

    Even if anyways was a word (it is not anyway is the correct form). Using it 50 times in a chapter gets annoying even when correct. "They slept poorly anyways". What is wrong with they slept poorly. I know I am being grammar psychotic, but once I keyed in I wanted to kill the editor and finally had to give up on the book.


    Would you recommend Rise to your friends? Why or why not?

    The reader was awesome.


    Which character – as performed by Jeff Woodman – was your favorite?

    N/A only one character as it is in a journal format.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disapointment


    Any additional comments?

    I am a zombie junkie. This author is no Mark Tufo or Manel Loureino.

    The story in which a 16-year-old is chosen by her government to undergo The Testing, which decides if she gets to go to The University. The University is for the country’s best and brightest teens and puts the rebuilding and future leadership of the United Commowealth in their hands.

    Might be a good book, but I could not get past the first 20 minutes. Worst reader ever. Requesting return.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Joelle Charbonneau again?

    Maybe


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Horrid

    "You can't touch me," I whisper. I'm lying, is what I don't tell him. He can touch me, is what I'll never tell him. But things happen when people touch me. Strange things. Bad things. No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal, but The Reestablishment has plans for her. Plans to use her as a weapon. But Juliette has plans of her own.

    Would you try another book from Tahereh Mafi and/or Kate Simses?

    No


    What could Tahereh Mafi have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Had a plot. If I want soft porn I will buy it.


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

    She is a fine reader, my review is no reflection upon her.


    What character would you cut from Shatter Me?

    All of them


    Any additional comments?

    Really, lets jump on the bandwagon. Half way through and no plot at all. I think I actually need to return this one.

    If society collapsed, could you survive? When Morgan Carter's car breaks down 250 miles from his home, he figures his weekend plans are ruined. But things are about to get much, much worse: the country's power grid has collapsed. There is no electricity, no running water, no Internet, and no way to know when normalcy will be restored - if it ever will be.

    Has Going Home turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy survival, zombie, apocalypse books for fun, but not Tea Party books. If you think that President Obama has a super secret agenda to bring down the self sufficient segment of the population, you will love this book. If you are more realistic I would steer away from it. The story itself wasn't exceptionally bad except for the hyper detail of the equipment the characters used down to towel choices.

    Story

    As a voracious reader of fantasy and epic fantasy I found this story tedious with no character that I root for and no bad guy I could root against. After getting half way through and realizing that my mind had wandered to my grocery list for the 5th time I switched over to Watership Down to re-listen to a childhood favorite that I had downloaded to listen to with my 7 year old. Compared to this book, Watership Down is a an edge of your seat thriller epic.

    Four hostages are rescued from a group of religious extremists in Barcelona. After five years of being held captive together, they make a vow to always watch out for one another. But they never expected this... The world they have returned to has been transformed by water - and the water is rising. As it continues to flow from the earth's mantle, entire countries disappear. High ground becomes a precious commodity. And before 50 years have passed, there will be nowhere left to run....

    Q says: "A great "what-if" apolcalyptic exploration"
    "The Worst Book I have ever read!"
    Overall

    Possible Spoiler Warning. Subterranean seas are opening and raising the sea level? Really come on, what would push the water up? The planet Earth wants life to survive and adjusts herself? The hostage portion is silly and does not even compute. I only finished this book to see how ridiculous it would become with time. How did Helen die? It was so irrelevant I missed it. What a waste of money and time, about the worst novel by far I have ever read. If this can be published we should ask so 1st graders to submit their novels. Dont waste your money.

    Leaving behind her private forensic pathology practice in Charleston, South Carolina, Kay Scarpetta accepts an assignment in New York City, where the NYPD has asked her to examine an injured man on Bellevue Hospital's psychiatric prison ward. The handcuffed and chained patient, Oscar Bane, has specifically asked for her, and when she literally has her gloved hands on him, he begins to talk - and the story he has to tell turns out to be one of the most bizarre she has ever heard.

    Becky says: "Don't waste your money"
    "Horrible Reader"
    Overall

    This may have been a good book, but was so poorly read I lost my way many a time; and I listen to 3 books a week on average. So poor in fact this is my first review ever of a book I have listened to. Save your money and buy the actual book if you are a fan.
