    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.

    Where does Divergent rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is in my top 5. It was suggested by a friend after I finished the Hunger Games series and it hasn't disappointed me. I am looking forward to the next book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the main character (Tris). She has this Katniss feel about her, but she is her own person, smarter. The story puts her into good situations.


    What three words best describe Emma Galvin’s voice?

    At first I thought this was one of the voices from The Help. Emma's voice is good. The only thing I would like to see it different voices from each character.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Tris falling for Four and finding out about where her mother came from.


    Any additional comments?

    I think the book is great. I am really happy I got into the series.

    CIA counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp falls prey to government forces with an agenda of their own after Dr. Irene Kennedy is named the successor to dying CIA Director Thomas Stansfield—a choice that enrages many inside the world’s most powerful intelligence agency. Her detractors will resort to extreme measures to prevent her from taking the reins—which makes Rapp an expendable asset. But Mitch Rapp is no one’s pawn, and he will stop at nothing to find out who has set him up.

    William says: "A great novel nearly ruined by the reader."

    Story
    (3020)

    When 15-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder - much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing, not even a smear of blood, to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

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

    I never read the print, but for someone who has listened to SEVERAL audiobooks it was good performance.


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

    The beginning of the book, where Clary and Jace from met.


    Which character – as performed by Ari Graynor – was your favorite?

    Jace, listening to the the book you can envision the character.


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

    I was shocked, by the ending but knew it was more to come and was interested in continuing the series.
