    One of the great masterpieces of Western literature, The Odyssey chronicles the many trials and adventures Odysseus must pass through on his long journey home from the Trojan wars. Though the stormy god of the ocean is determined to keep him off course, Odysseus is clever and has the brilliant goddess Athena on his side.

    What made the experience of listening to Odyssey the most enjoyable?

    It was so much more enjoyable to listen as an adult then read as a student in school. The characters came alive as the story unfolded. Great performance by Anthony Healds.

    Katniss Everdeen is "the girl who was on fire," but she is also the girl who made us think, dream, question authority, and rebel. The post-apocalyptic world of Panem's twelve districts is a divided society on the brink of war and struggling to survive, while the Capitol lives in the lap of luxury and pure contentment. At every turn in the Hunger Games trilogy, Katniss, Peeta, Gale, and their many allies wrestle with harrowing choices and ethical dilemmas that push them to the brink. Is it okay for Katniss to break the law to ensure her family's survival?

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Hunger Games and Philosophy to be better than the print version?

    I found listening allowed me to review and contemplate how the characters interacted among each other. I enjoyed the emotional roller coaster of all the Hunger games books. The Philosophy of the Hunger games ties all of the actions together for the listener to understand why certain actions were taken by the characters. A very good series of audio books that are more entertaining to listen too, than read.
