    The time has come for one winner to be crowned. When she was chosen to compete in the Selection, America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown - or to Prince Maxon's heart. But as the end of the competition approaches, and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose - and how hard she'll have to fight for the future she wants.

    Story

    This is one of the most boring books I've had the displeasure to endure. The narrator is boring, and the writing has gotten so old over the last 3 books. I can't bear to finish it because it's blah blah blah blah blah - which boy do I choose? Oh no! It's even more boring than The Twilight Saga! If I could, I'd ask for a refund for all three. I want those hours of my life back.

    Who is that hairy guy in the green Speedo? Rob Delaney is a father, a husband, a comedian, a writer. He is the author of an endless stream of beautiful, insane jokes on Twitter. He is sober. He is sometimes brave. He speaks French. He loves women with abundant pubic hair and saggy naturals. He has bungee jumped off of the Manhattan Bridge. He enjoys antagonizing political figures. He listens to metal while he works out. He likes to fart. He broke into an abandoned mental hospital with his mother.

    This wasn't funny or interesting, and listening to this guy narrate the book is about as fascinating as watching paint dry. I kept waiting for something interesting to happen, but all that occurred was 5 hours of him detailing and complaining about his pot use and alcohol abuse. I want my time and my credit back.

    Dan Savage’s mother wants him to get married. His boyfriend, Terry, says “no thanks” because he doesn’t want to act like a straight person. Their six-year-old son, D.J., says his two dads aren’t “allowed” to get married but that he’d like to come to the reception and eat cake. Throw into the mix Dan’s straight siblings, whose varied choices form a microcosm of how Americans are approaching marriage these days, and you get a rollicking family memoir that will have everyone—gay or straight, right or left, single or married—howling with laughter.

    Story

    I liked the book. It was very interesting and fascinating information and back story (what happened to the toy poodle's other eye?). However, after reading his columns for years and listening to hundreds of his podcasts, the performance was lacking. It didn't go with the subject matter at hand. The narrator was far too formal for Dan's writing.

    Don't look at Them. Never let Them know you can see Them. That is Ethan Chase's unbreakable rule. Until the fey he avoids at all costs - including his reputation - begin to disappear, and Ethan is attacked. Now he must change the rules to protect his family. To save a girl he never thought he'd dare to fall for. Ethan thought he had protected himself from his older sister's world - the land of Faery.

    In the story comic book legend Stan Lee calls "spellbinding" and "totally original," Thom Creed has secrets. For one, like his father, he has super powers. Also, he's been asked to join the League—the very organization of superheroes that spurned his dad. Then there’s the secret Thom can barely face himself: he's gay. But becoming a member of the League opens up a new world to Thom. There, he connects with a misfit group of aspiring heroes, including Scarlett, Typhoid Larry, and Ruth, a wise old broad who can see the future. Like Thom, these heroes have things to hide....

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

    Absolutely! And I have! Some of the names are a little silly, but since when do super heroes have normal monikers? I ADORE this book - I have listened to it several times, and I laugh out loud every time.


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

    The voices and timing are spot on - love it!

    Evie’s always thought of herself as a normal teenager, even though she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she’s falling for a shape-shifter, and she’s the only person who can see through paranormals’ glamours. But Evie’s about to realize that she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures. So much for normal.

    Would you listen to Paranormalcy again? Why?

    Yep, I am right now because the writing and narration are funny and awesome! I've laughed out loud at parts!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Paranormalcy?

    Tasie the hot pink taser gun she had. Evie is in love with pink and named her weapon. Awesome!


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

    The relationship between Evie and Raquel. I was not happy with what happened to one of the characters. I really missed that one... and it really affected Evie. Bleep.


    Any additional comments?

    Bleep bleep!

    Zara White suspects there's a freaky guy semi-stalking her. She's also obsessed with phobias. And it's true, she hasn't exactly been herself since her stepfather died. But exiling her to shivery Maine to live with her grandmother? That seems a bit extreme. The move is supposed to help her stay sane . . . but Zara's pretty sure her mom just can't deal with her right now.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    It was an easy, predictable read. I don't know that other friends of mine would enjoy this, but it was okay.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    meh


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different narrator - this narrator was flat and I found it difficult to connect with the way she presented the characters.

    Zara and her friends knew they hadn't solved the pixie problem for good. Far from it. The king's needs grow deeper every day he's stuck in captivity, while his control over his people gets weaker. It's made him vulnerable. And now there's a new king in town.

    What would have made Captivate better?

    This book sucks. It is really difficult to get through, and the narrator is NOT helping! Perhaps with better narration, this book would be passable, but I honestly regret wasting my credit on this and the third book.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Julia Whelan?

    Emily Eiden; Therese Plummer
