    In Julie Cross' Tempest, the year is 2009. Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a normal guy: he’s in college, has a girlfriend… and he can travel back through time. But it’s not like the movies - nothing changes in the present after his jumps, there’s no space-time continuum issues or broken flux capacitors - it’s just harmless fun. That is… until the day strangers burst in on Jackson and his girlfriend, Holly, and during a struggle with Jackson, Holly is fatally shot.

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

    Yes, fast moving


    What other book might you compare Tempest to and why?

    Robin Cook. His books usually have lots of surprises (twist & turns)


    Have you listened to any of Matthew Brown’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No but I do listen to lots of audio books and he did a great job


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I could not stop listening to it. It made me laugh when Jackson had to clean up the bathroom at the gym which overflowed.
    There were several scenes that made me cry but the most powerful one was when Holly read the card Jackson had written to Courtney(his sister) who died with his feelings about her but he never actually gave it to her.
    I don't want to spoil it but the ending was sad to me too.


    Any additional comments?

    You will not want to stop listening once you get started. Great debut book for this author. Sad that I have to wait until next year for the sequel.

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    Would you listen to The Fault in Our Stars again? Why?

    Yes because it has an important message


    What did you like best about this story?

    It made me think about how we treat people with chonic illness- what we say to them, are we avoiding them because we are afraid.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Rudd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Message - we are all people who need the same things in life--friends, relationships, love, understanding.
