    In the summer of 1942, a band of citizen soldiers were brought together by the desire to be better than the other guy. At its peak, Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, U.S. Army, was as good a rifle company as any in the world. From their rigorous training in Georgia in 1942 through Utah Beach, Market-Garden, the Bulge, and Hitler's Eagle's Nest, WWII historian Stephen Ambrose tells the story of this remarkable company.

    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.

    Teddy says: "The Book Deserves The Hype"
    "A biting, microscopic introspective on society"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Hunger Games the most enjoyable?

    The description an attention to detail to violence and accepted cultural normalalicies.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Katniss shows the moral dilemma given to a girl that is either given or must carry out a death sentence.


    What aspect of Carolyn McCormick’s performance would you have changed?

    Carolyn could have been a little more personal and sincere with characters, especially the leading character Katniss.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Spoiler!!!: I broke down when Katniss showed such sincere compassion and humanity in the most inhumane death.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't let the semi-bland performance of the reader prevent you from enjoying this entire series!

    The suspense builds so big and yet what it leads to is no disappointment.
