    In Blow Fly, Kay Scarpetta stands at the threshold of a new life after her work as Virginia's Chief Medical Examiner has come to a jarring end. At the close of The Last Precinct, she knew she would have to leave Richmond if she were to find any peace. So she packed up her belongings and set out for Florida. Now she must unravel a conspiracy with an international reach and confront the shock of her life, a blow that will force her to question all she holds dear.

    I didn't realize this was another in the series about Jay Tally and his infamous brother Jean the werewolf. However, I really enjoyed it, even though i was tired of those 2 characters. I definitely recommend the read.

    If you could sum up Mockingjay in three words, what would they be?

    Predictable but Awesome


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Peter, the in depthness that the write brought about for him, I wanted to just keep rooting for him.


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

    All wonderful


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

    Yes, near the end. I don't want to give it away, but when a character dies, I had tears. When I read the treatment of Peter, I could not stop listening.


    Any additional comments?

    Read it, after the other 2, I truly just had to get to the end to see how things panned out for Katness.

    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.

    If you could sum up The Hunger Games in three words, what would they be?

    Very spellbinding. I could not believe how quick I got caught up in the story. I really did not want to put it down. I had seen the movie and could not figure out why all the hype. Ten minutes into the book and I knew why people were excited for the movie. This is a must read even if you were only a mediocre fan of the movie.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Hunger Games?

    The rough life the main character lived.


    Which character – as performed by Carolyn McCormick – was your favorite?

    Catness


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

    When Rue died.


    Any additional comments?

    Give it a try.

    What did you love best about The Fellowship of the Ring?

    I went through the entire series after watching the first movie. I have no idea how much details had been left out. This actor does an amzing job on the character voices. So glad this is finally in our audibe library!!! btw you can start with The Hobbitt since that really is first.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fellowship of the Ring?

    When Baromir dies, the song that is sung by Aragorn is really moving.


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

    Amazing voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes but impossible.


    Any additional comments?

    but it.

    Best-selling novelist Cullen "Cubby" Greenwich is a lucky man and he knows it. He makes a handsome living doing what he enjoys. His wife, Penny, a children's book author and illustrator, is the love of his life. Together they have a brilliant six-year-old, Milo, affectionately dubbed "Spooky," and a non-collie named Lassie, who's all but part of the family. So Cubby knows he shouldn't let one bad review of his otherwise triumphant new book get to him.

    Derek B. says: "I cant sleep!"
    "wow, this one is a winner!"
    Overall

    It took about 30 minutes, but after that I found it hard to stop listening when I reached my destination by car. I have read almost every book he ever wrote. I found it hard that he could top my favorite..but this is a BIG recommendation!
