    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.

    "The ultimate game of "Survivor""
    Overall

    Noone gets voted off this island - they get killed. And it's not really an island, but you get the idea. Not a lot of big surprises in this book, but it was an interesting premise. Reminded me a little of "The Lottery", or maybe "Logan's Run". I think this would be a particularly good listen for a teenage girl since the main character is a sixteen year old girl, who (aside from trying to stay alive) is struggling with the usual teen insecurities and trying to understand her feelings.

    Story

    Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. She got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. This is the absorbing chronicle of that year.

    Kerry says: "Witty and Wonderful"
    "Well written, but all it did was tick me off"
    Overall

    Boy, I wish that every woman was able to take off for a year following a divorce and focus on nothing but themselves and their feelings. Actually, I wish every man and woman had the luxury of doing that at some point in their life, divorced or not. Unfortunately the reality that most people face is a far cry from the voyage of self-discovery this author experiences. I don't know what I was hoping for from this book, but it wasn't the whining of a mid-thirties woman who really doesn't have anything to whine about.
