    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.

    "So good!"
    Overall

    This book kept my whole family (my husband and me, three high-schoolers and a fifth grader) spellbound for an entire two-day car journey. When we arrived, the kids wanted to stay in the car in the hotel parking lot to listen to the last ten minutes of the story. It really is just that exciting. We have been fighting over readership of the three printed novels ever since.

  • The Loved Dog: The Playful, Nonaggressive Way to Teach Your Dog Good Behavior

    More than 15 years ago, Tamar Geller began her career as a dog trainer by observing a scientific study of wolves in the wild. She realized that the socialization and parenting techniques they used to raise their cubs were rooted in bonding, communication, and play: not in aggression, dominance, or punishment. If people used these techniques when training their dogs, she realized, there would be no need for prong collars, choke chains, or any kind of physical or verbal aggression.

    What made the experience of listening to The Loved Dog the most enjoyable?

    Very useful book and nice narration. Rather than just a step-by-step recipe of different dog obedience steps, it teaches how to incorporate those steps and teaching into your daily life and how to have a good attitude towards you dog.

    In the 25th century, humankind has spread throughout the galaxy, monitored by the watchful eye of the U.N. While divisions in race, religion, and class still exist, advances in technology have redefined life itself. Now, assuming one can afford the expensive procedure, a person's consciousness can be stored in a cortical stack at the base of the brain and easily downloaded into a new body (or "sleeve") making death nothing more than a minor blip on a screen.

    Jake Williams says: "Altered Carbon"
    "not for me"
    Overall

    The main character is a gruff, tough, humorless man. The book's narrator has a deep, gravelly voice which he has to use frequently to do female voices, which is not good. The book describes a world full of scientific advances and yet the characters are still chain-smoking cigarettes and flushing toilets. I did not like this one at all.
