    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.

    Overall

    This author raises some interesting thoughts about what a futuristic one world government would be like and the impact that might have on individual freedoms. This futuristic society is a case of calling evil good and good evil. I'm looking forward to reading the next installment.

    Story

    From the blockbuster bestselling author of the Eve Duncan novels comes a new, stand alone thriller about a woman with a photographic memory who has lived her life in the Witness Protection Program. What she once put her entire family in jeopardy and now, years later, her cover is blown. She’s on the run, and the lives of those she holds dear hang in the balance. As only Iris Johansen can do, you won’t see the twists coming.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better, less predictable plot. Characters with depth-not the stereotypical ones in this s t ory. A reader who didn't do the fake lower voice for the guy would have been nice. Also, it starts with a grown man and a 16 yr old girl with sexual overtones-creeeepy


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not a Johansen book


    How could the performance have been better?

    Someone who could give a male inflection without the lower voice deal


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    They didn't kill the tiger??


    Any additional comments?

    She sure got over the mind reading thing. It w a s almost like she didn't have a power after all. Kind of confusing

    "You can leave the army, but the army doesn’t leave you. Not always. Not completely," notes Jack Reacher - and sure enough, the retired military cop is soon pulled back into service. This time, for the State Department and the CIA. Someone has taken a shot at the president of France in the City of Light. The bullet was American. The distance between the gunman and the target was exceptional. How many snipers can shoot from three-quarters of a mile with total confidence? Very few, but John Kott - an American marksman gone bad - is one of them...

    What did you like best about Personal? What did you like least?

    The first scene in Seattle WA
    It was too slow and wordy throughout


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Reacher leaving the USA'

    The implausibility of Reacher leaving the USA


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    Reacher


    Did Personal inspire you to do anything?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Is Mr Child getting bored with the Reacher character? Maybe it's time for Reacher to meet a lady, fall in love, and stop wandering all over the place.
