    If you could sum up The Spirit Clearing in three words, what would they be?

    Got through it finally


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I felt like the story went no where I was always "wondering where's this going?"


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    More descriptive narration. When at the climax I still feel like he was reading the story as it was the beginning.


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

    This is a after school special at best.

    Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, firemen start fires rather than put them out. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden. Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television "family."

    Story

    Its hard to believe that this is a classic. I get it tv flat screens ear buds hard to say this dystopian novel was written years ago. It's scary with snakes and spiders and the burning of books. But Tim Robbins female voices were scary. He did manage to catch the males and the pace of the book particularly well. Definitely worth it

    The area surrounding Cashiers, North Carolina, is home to people of all kinds, but the world that Jacob McNeely lives in is crueler than most. His father runs a methodically organized meth ring, with local authorities on the dime to turn a blind eye to his dealings. Having dropped out of high school and cut himself off from his peers, Jacob has been working for this father for years, all on the promise that his payday will come eventually.

Mare steals what she can to help her family survive, but when her best friend is conscripted into the army she gambles everything to win his freedom.

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

    I love listening to this entire series. I can't think of any other narrator who could do this book as good as Christian Rummel.

    Katie Chandler had always heard that New York is a weird and wonderful place, but this small-town Texas gal had no idea how weird until she moved there. Everywhere she goes, she sees something worth gawking at and Katie is afraid she's a little too normal to make a splash in the big city. Working for an ogre of a boss doesn't help. Then, seemingly out of the blue, Katie gets a job offer from Magic, Spells, and Illusions, Inc., a company that tricks of the trade to the magic community. For MSI, Katie's ordinariness is an asset.

    Pirriwee Public's annual school Trivia Night has ended in a shocking riot. One parent is dead. The school principal is horrified. As police investigate what appears to have been a tragic accident, signs begin to indicate that this devastating death might have been cold-blooded murder. In this thought-provoking novel, number-one New York Times best-selling author Liane Moriarty deftly explores the reality of parenting and playground politics, ex-husbands and ex-wives, and fractured families.

    It took me a little bit to understand the narrative of this book but once I started liking the characters the more I liked to listen to her. This is a book about the lives of people behind closed doors basically. Then it all comes crashing down at a school function. I won't lie this was a good book.

    To stop her sadistic grandfather, Saul, and his band of time travelers from rewriting history, Kate must race to retrieve the CHRONOS keys before they fall into the Cyrists’ hands. If she jumps back in time and pulls the wrong key - one that might tip off the Cyrists to her strategy - her whole plan could come crashing down, jeopardizing the future of millions of innocent people. Kate’s only ally is Kiernan, who also carries the time-traveling gene.

    Okay, Kate a teenager who helps her ailing time traveling grandmother who is stuck in time to solve a world domination problem from a group called the Cyrists. Headed by her look alike aunt and her evil grandfather. She jumps back and forth between time trying to retrieve time traveling keys to change or not change events so things (like not being born) don't happen all while not tipping off the Cyrists. With the help of Jack and Trey two men whom she both has feelings for.
    This was an awesome series I wish I could time travel to get the next book!

    Kiernan Dunne abandoned his family ties to help Kate fight the Cyrists, and he's never regretted that for one moment. But he doesn't understand why Kate can't remember that night in 1893 Chicago, when she turned back to face the killer chasing them through the smoky corridors of the World's Fair Hotel. Kate placed the CHRONOS key around his neck and made his eight-year-old self promise to wear it always, and that's a promise Kiernan has never broken.
