    When 14-year-old Will Burrows goes looking for his missing father, he discovers an underground world that time forgot. Ruled by a brutal class called the Styx, "The Colony" has not changed in a hundred years.

Before long their extraordinary adventure unearths a terrible secret - one that may cost them their lives.

    "great first novel"
    Overall

    Began slow with a few extra characters whom I looked for, but they never came back. It just kept getting better as it went along, however.

    From farmer Joel Salatin's point of view, life in the 21st century just ain't normal. In Folks, This Ain't Normal, he discusses how far removed we are from the simple, sustainable joy that comes from living close to the land and the people we love.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Want to join the “superhumans”? Luckily you don’t have to run to catch up with them, thanks to McDougall’s and Sanders’ inspiring (and motivating) journey through history, science, physiology, health, entertaining characters and unlikely friendships. Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure.

    Corey says: "Amazing read - even for non-runners"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen to be better than the print version?

    I listened to this book and loved it so much, I went out to buy a hard copy.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen?

    The whole book inspired me to not only get out and do something, but to try and live a more simple life.


    What does Fred Sanders bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Listening to the book enabled me to know how to pronounce the names of the people involved and the name of the tribe.


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

    This book changed my life and inspired me to do more than sit around and watch other people live on TV. Knowing that the characters are real people made a huge difference to me.

    Pi Patel has been raised in a zoo in India. When his father decides to move the family to Canada and sell the animals to American zoos, everyone boards a Japanese cargo ship. The ship sinks, and 16-year-old Pi finds himself alone on a lifeboat with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra with a broken leg, and a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon it's just Pi, the tiger, and the vast Pacific Ocean - for 227 days. Pi's fear, knowledge, and cunning keep him alive until they reach the coast of Mexico, where the tiger disappears into the jungle.

    Theresa says: "Best audio of the year for me"
    "Strange"
    Overall

    I never could figure out if it really happened or was just a very well written story. Either way, it kept me going the whole time.
