    In A Thousand Lives, the New York Times best-selling memoirist Julia Scheeres traces the fates of five individuals who followed Jim Jones to South America as they struggled to first build their paradise, and then survive it. Each went for different reasons - some were drawn to Jones for his progressive attitudes towards racial equality, others were dazzled by his claims to be a faith healer. But once in Guyana, Jones' drug addiction, mental decay, and sexual depredations quickly eroded the idealistic community.

    I couldn't stop listening to this audio book. It was so interesting that I listened to all 11 hours of it in less than 48 hours.

    Seventeen-year-old Bianca Piper is cynical and loyal, and she doesn’t think she’s the prettiest of her friends by a long shot. She’s also way too smart to fall for the charms of man-slut and slimy school hottie Wesley Rush. In fact, Bianca hates him. And when he nicknames her “the Duff,” she throws her Coke in his face. But things aren’t so great at home right now, and Bianca is desperate for a distraction. She ends up kissing Wesley. Worse, she likes it.

    "Great story, so-so audio"
    Overall

    I'd give it 3 stars for the audio version and 4.5 for the actual story. I felt like the narrator had almost a bit of a lisp. (Or maybe I've been saying Wesley wrong. I think wes-ly. She pronounced it wez-ly.) But the story is great!
