    I loved the movements when the family and friends begin o understand the real Holden.

    In the wild, when a wolf knows its time is over, when it knows it is of no more use to its pack, it may sometimes choose to slip away. Dying apart from its family, it stays proud and true to its nature. Humans aren’t so lucky. Luke Warren has spent his life researching wolves. He has written about them, studied their habits intensively, and even lived with them for extended periods of time.

    Thirteen-year-old Mau is the only one left after a giant wave sweeps his island village away. But when much is taken, something is returned, and somewhere in the jungle, Daphne - a girl from the other side of the globe - is the sole survivor of a ship destroyed by the same wave.

    What did you love best about Nation?

    The characters were so interesting. The story made you think.


    What about Stephen Briggs’s performance did you like?

    I enjoyed the English accent. He read with such expression each character had his or her own personality.

    Ptolemy Grey is 91 years old and has been all but forgotten - by his family, his friends, even himself - as he sinks into a lonely dementia. His grand-nephew, Ptolemy's only connection to the outside world, was recently killed in a drive-by shooting, and Ptolemy is too suspicious of anyone else to allow them into his life, until he meets Robyn, his niece's 17-year-old lodger and the only one willing to take care of an old man at his grandnephew's funeral.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to a friend. I really enjoyed this thought provoking novel. Mr. Mosley really knows how to made the characters in his novel come alive. By the end of the book the characters have become old friends.
