I started listening to audiobooks from the library while driving around in my truck and soon found myself bringing the books inside with me. Once i got an ipod the books went everywhere with me. I work with my hands so audiobooks are great for me. I now listen to audiobooks about 8 hours each day. If i am not talking to someone or at home in my chair, then i have earbuds in listening to an audiobook.

    Sunshine State trivia buff Serge A. Storms loves eliminating jerks and pests. His drug-addled partner Coleman loves cartoons. Hot stripper Sharon Rhodes loves cocaine, especially when purchased with rich dead men's money. On the other hand, there's Sean and David, who love fishing and are kind to animals - and who are about to cross paths with a suitcase filled with $5 million in stolen insurance money. Serge wants the suitcase. Sharon wants the suitcase. Coleman wants more drugs... and the suitcase.

    This is the funniest series of books i have ever read. Tim Dorsey is about the only author to get me to laugh out loud while listening. I started this series randomly by checking them out from the library so i had to just get what i could and started with much later books, and i have to say that i enjoy the later books in this series much more. in this book Serge is very simular to the people he kills in later books for their behavior so that kind of confused me. The ending of this book also left me feeling kind of unsatisfied. even tho all of the books kind of play off of each other, the endings usually tie up all of the loose ends of that particular book, but this one left too many questions

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    This book is simply epic on too many levels for me to bother trying to describe it here. i will say that i think anyone would enjoy this book, whether they like the genre or not. also if you enjoy this book (which i feel sure you will) be sure to check out ender's shadow. it is roughly the same story from bean's point of view. it's impossible for me to say which of the books i like better

    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold ""human error"" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

    The idea is awesome, the execution is incredible, it's intense but full of humor, and the reader could not have possibly been better. don't even hesitate, just download it now and you'll forever be glad you did.

    you have to listen to this one of course because it's the end of the trilogy, you have to know how it ends. the first book i loved, the second book was way too much like the first, but i have mixed feelings about this last one. the story line its self was good. everything was put together fairly well, but this book brought in the immaturity i had feared in a teen series about such an intense topic. This one made me truly sick of Katniss for a lot more of the book then i would have liked. i feel like the author robbed Katniss of her dignity by making her react to choices and decisions with such a short sighted and immature attitude. it would be typical is the average teenager but with everything Katniss went through in the first two books would have given her a much greater grasp of reality and what had to be done. also not crazy about the ending, it felt kind of cut short and unfinished.

    This was pretty good of course, but i sort of feel like this book was unnecessary. I was shocked how similar this one was to the first. the first 3/4 of this book should have been a few chapters, and spent the rest of the time on new material. overall i enjoyed it, but i do feel a little cheated

    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.

    i didn't think i would love this series for the sole fact that i thought it would be toned down too much since it is a teen series. i am not saying that i want children killing each other to be very graphic, but when you decide to go with the basic premis that you are going to put kids in an arena to fight to the death then you can't sugar coat it too much and still have a book that makes any sense. i have to say that this book was not toned down at all; i don't think it's really a teen book other then the fact that the characters are mostly teens. it was well written and keeps you glued to your earbuds though.

    America faces a full-scale socioeconomic collapse in the near future. The stock market plummets, hyperinflation cripples commerce and the mounting crisis passes the tipping point. Practically overnight, the fragile chains of supply and high-technology infrastructure fall, and wholesale rioting and looting grip every major city.

    This is an excellent book that i listen to over and over again. It could be that I believe this scenario is very possible, even inevitable, due to the treasury operating on a deficit system along with the current political values of washington, but i love everything about this book. it is enjoyable simply as a novel, but you have to remember that this is a survival guide written in the form of a novel. That is why some people don't enjoy it as much because there are so many details of supplies, and how to do certain things to survive. I have a physical copy of this book as well just for reference because it is such a good guide. as long as you don't mind learning some stuff along the way then there is no reason not to enjoy this book.
