    Story
    Would you listen to Life After Death again? Why?

    Absolutely! It was so powerful and uplifting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fact that he read it. It felt like you were sitting down next to him while he told you an unbelievable story.


    Have you listened to any of Damien Echols’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not but if he has more I definitely will.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Just like the book. LIfe after Death. I did like his idea of a mini-series because there is so much to tell a movie would not do it justice.

    Thank you for sharing your story.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Annie M. says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"

    Such a truly well written book. Keeps you just sucked in from the moment you start listening. It was so sad, yet so powerful to see how amazing the human mind and body can be under such stress and torture. Highly recommend this book to anyone.

    Drew Evans is handsome and arrogant, he makes multimillion dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. So why has he been shuttered in his apartment for seven days, miserable and depressed? He’ll tell you he has the flu. But we all know that’s not really true. Katherine Brooks is brilliant, beautiful and ambitious. When Kate is hired as the new associate at Drew’s father’s investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy’s life is thrown into a tailspin.

    This was a great book and a good story. I liked that this story basically had two equals and not a rich guy with a poor little woman. She was tough and a go-getter. The love scenes were great and I am glad it eneded the way it did.

    Despite their rowdy hookups, Harlow and Finn don’t even like each other.... which would explain why their marriage lasted only 12 hours. He needs to be in charge and takes whatever he wants. She lives by the Want-something-done? Do-it-yourself mantra. Maybe she’s too similar to the rugged fisherman - or just what he needs.

    One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him. But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation - and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out - Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume - her sweet, filthy fling - to France for the summer and just…play.

    Thomas knows that Wicked can't be trusted, but they say the time for lies is over, that they've collected all they can from the Trials and now must rely on the Gladers, with full memories restored, to help them with their ultimate mission. It's up to the Gladers to complete the blueprint for the cure to the Flare with a final voluntary test. What Wicked doesn't know is that something's happened that no Trial or Variable could have foreseen. Thomas has remembered far more than they think. And he knows that he can't believe a word of what Wicked says. The time for lies is over.

    Solving the Maze was supposed to be the end. No more puzzles. No more variables. And no more running. Thomas was sure that escape meant he and the Gladers would get their lives back. But no one really knew what sort of life they were going back to. In the Maze, life was easy... until Teresa triggered the end. In the world outside the Maze, however, the end was triggered long ago. Burned by sun flares and baked by a new, brutal climate, the earth is a wasteland....

    When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he's not alone. When the lift's doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade - a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Maze Runner to be better than the print version?

    Don't know!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Maze Runner?

    When Thomas goes into the Maze for the first time! Loved it :)


    Which character – as performed by Mark Deakins – was your favorite?

    They were all spectacular. He really did an amazing job of reading this story.


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

    I just loved the whole thing. Could not stop listening and when I did I couldn't wait to start again. It is not a funny book per say but has some funny moments. It does have some emotional moments where you feel sad for these young boys and just want to see them win.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend this book to both young adults, teens, pre-teens and adults. My 11 year old read it to and she just loved it. Already reading number 2.
