    Blessed (or cursed) with an ability to understand animals, the Lass has always been an oddball. And when an isbjorn (polar bear) seeks her out, and promises that her family will become rich if only the Lass will accompany him to his castle, she doesn't hesitate. But the bear is not what he seems, nor is his castle, which is made of ice and inhabited by a silent staff of servants.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The epic monster ending was alittle lame and uneventfull

    The main character could talk to animals and her brothers envolvement, the secret challenge at the castle, her character


    What about Jessica Roland’s performance did you like?

    good reader


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    sure

    What did you like best about Mockingjay? What did you like least?

    Katis had a family in the end, all the carnage, families and freinds separated, Katis is still an outcast just like when she started


    What was most disappointing about Suzanne Collins’s story?

    Pulled me out of the story when chapter after chapter Katis is bitten, burned, blown up, I was thinking just let me speed up and finish this thing. charactes seemed to stay the same throughout the book they did not evolve


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

    She was wonderful


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    maybe if they didnt stick too close to the book

    Not so very long ago, Eragon - Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider - was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders. months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can.

    What did you love best about Inheritance?

    Paolini seemed to take true to each character, Loved the relationship between the cousin and his wife, amny loveable characters. Really enjoyed how the bad guy got his come-up-ins in the end


    What other book might you compare Inheritance to and why?

    Lord of the Rings, both authors create a world you can dive into


    What about Gerard Doyle’s performance did you like?

    Everything, made the book come alive


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

    the return of the drangons, the inclussion of all races to be dragon riders


    Any additional comments?

    The parting of Eragon and the girl seemed alittle lame she is both the Queen and a dragon rider but cant ever be with Eragon as a friend or otherwise, the only thing that felt wrong.

    depressing, the main character is bloodied in every way possible, its exhusting, makes you believe she is not human, takes you out of the story

    escaping the hunger games again, reunited with family

    only once

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    What did you like best about The Hunger Games? What did you like least?

    Original ideas, I can always get behind people fighting for freedom from human monsters.

    Darkness and heaviness of the book, disreguard for human life


    Would you be willing to try another book from Suzanne Collins? Why or why not?

    no, she seems to shove her ideas down your throat, characters dont evolve, they just keep going through the same circle


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

    She was great


    Did The Hunger Games inspire you to do anything?

    not listen to any more Suzanne Collins books

    Would you ever listen to anything by Michael Scott again?

    probably not


    What three words best describe Denis O'Hare’s performance?

    good


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    yes, creative ideas, the twins connection


    Any additional comments?

    I was hoping for more defind characters, Put off by Scott using other authors established personalities for his own books, it seemed lazy to ride of the coat tails of JK Rowlings character ideas. Author had some fun ideas , come up with your own original names for your characters.
