    Solving the Maze was supposed to be the end. No more puzzles. No more variables. And no more running. Thomas was sure that escape meant he and the Gladers would get their lives back. But no one really knew what sort of life they were going back to. In the Maze, life was easy... until Teresa triggered the end. In the world outside the Maze, however, the end was triggered long ago. Burned by sun flares and baked by a new, brutal climate, the earth is a wasteland....

    One of the best-known stories in American culture, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has stirred the imagination of young and old alike for over 100 years. Best Actress nominee Anne Hathaway (Rachel Getting Married, Alice In Wonderland), fresh from filming The Dark Knight Rises, lent her voice to this uniquely American fairy tale.

    Love the way Anne Hathaway read this book! The story differs slightly from the movie, so if you've never read the story, I suggest you listen to this!

    Contrary to popular belief, death is not a moment in time, such as when the heart stops beating, respiration ceases, or the brain stops functioning. Death, rather, is a process - a process that can be interrupted well after it has begun. Innovative techniques, such as drastically reducing the patient's body temperature, have proven to be effective in revitalizing both the body and mind, but studies show they are only employed in approximately half of the hospitals throughout the United States and Europe.

    Story

    Being in the acute care setting for my entire carreer as an ER/ICU/CCU nurse, this got me thinking. Although it didn't explain much of what I already knew, the case studies were great. It still left me wanting more information, but it may be impossible to get more unless there are subjects who would agree to die and come back to life.

    Thomas knows that Wicked can't be trusted, but they say the time for lies is over, that they've collected all they can from the Trials and now must rely on the Gladers, with full memories restored, to help them with their ultimate mission. It's up to the Gladers to complete the blueprint for the cure to the Flare with a final voluntary test. What Wicked doesn't know is that something's happened that no Trial or Variable could have foreseen. Thomas has remembered far more than they think. And he knows that he can't believe a word of what Wicked says. The time for lies is over.

    When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he's not alone. When the lift's doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade - a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.

    Story

    This is an amazing tale that you won't be able to stop listening to. Every chapter ends leaving you wanting more. I listen at night and stayed awake for hour after hour listening to this audiobook. The writer brings the characters and places to life in your mind and keeps you anxious about what happens next. I can't believe the intent need to know more that arose as I listened. amazing series, too. I'm on the third book and have orderd the prequil. I'd definately listen to the three books first, so you get the full impact of the story.

    The reader is amazing in using different voices for the characters, just an amazing performance!

    Sarah Piper’s lonely, threadbare existence changes when her temporary-work agency sends her to assist a ghost hunter. Alistair Gellis - rich, handsome, scarred by World War I, and obsessed with ghosts - has been summoned to investigate the spirit of 19-year-old maid Maddy Clare, who haunts the barn where she committed suicide. Since Maddy hated men in life, it is Sarah’s task to confront her in death. Soon Sarah is caught up in a desperate struggle, for Maddy’s ghost is real, she is angry, and she has powers that defy all reason.

    Story

    This book had all the elements for a romance, but the story was a bit out there! It seemed a bit ahead of times forthe period it was written in. I know it takes a lot to plot a story, but I felt like the herione was a goody girl and was taken off gaurd by the way the hero and herione got together. The love scenes seemed very contrived, as if they needed to be placed there in the story, and the way the hero took her was a bit weird. Overall, an easy listen if you can stay awake if listening at night. I was happy for the rewind button.

    Prosecuting attorney in the Manson trial Vincent Bugliosi held a unique insider's position in one of the most baffling and horrifying cases of the 20th century: the cold-blooded Tate-LaBianca murders carried out by Charles Manson and four of his followers. What motivated Manson in his seemingly mindless selection of victims, and what was his hold over the young women who obeyed his orders? Now available for the first time in unabridged audio, the gripping story of this famous and haunting crime is brought to life by acclaimed narrator Scott Brick.

    Story

    This book keeps me awake every night while I wait to hear an even more disgusting fact about this case. I was only ten years old when this happened and the news was so much less forthcoming of the facts. I remember feeling disgusted that an actress had her baby stripped from her stomach while being brutelly murdered, but that didn't really happen at all. I wanted to read the facts of the story as an adult, so I could try to understand what really happened. It's really a gut wrenching portrayal of the real murders and amazing how the people committing these murders can be so brainwashed.

    Manson was a true serial killer and bought his due reward. If you have a weak stomach, you might want to read the book, so you can skip some of the gory details.

    I would recommend this book for anyone that wants to know the real inside story of what happened to these innocent people. The timeline keeps you on track, while you try to understand and grasp the whole situation.
