    Seven-year-old Autumn Backman has a gift: she can communicate telepathically with others. Not everyone, mind you, but with a select few with whom she shares a special kinship. When Autumn and her mother, Joanna, take her father's ashes to be buried in the family plot in Brickers Bowl, Georgia, she witnesses a horrifying sight: her grandmother and two uncles, burying a pile of dead bodies in the middle of the night.

    Overall

    This was my husband's choice. I couldn't imagine listening to the same story that long. Boy was I wrong. That was the fastest trip across four states I've ever had. The voices were incredible. The characters have grown as they would have in real life. But they haven't lost a thing.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    What did you love best about The Hunger Games?

    It's intense!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Katniss, definitely. Strong.


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

    Carolyn McCormick is always good. She has read many of my favorite stories. She can be intense without overdoing it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Towards the end, yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Good for mature teenagers. Will appreciate America.

  • Heaven Is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back

    (2007)

    When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

    Would you try another book from Todd Burpo, and Lynn Vincent and/or Dean Gallagher?

    No, it was VERY repetative, like the author assumed we would repeatedly forget the boy's story of heaven.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story - I believe it's true


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dean Gallagher’s performances?

    No, his voice was unpleasant. I had to take breaks from it.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I'm glad I learned the story.


    Any additional comments?

    This one is for old fashion reading.

    Recipe for disaster: Celebrity chef Stanley Chipotle comes to Trenton to participate in a barbecue cook-off and loses his head - literally. Throw in some spice: Bail bonds office worker Lula is witness to the crime, and the only one she'll talk to is Trenton cop, Joe Morelli. Pump up the heat: Chipotle's sponsor is offering a million-dollar reward to anyone who can provide information leading to the capture of the killers.

    Connie says: "A little Disappointed"
    "gotta love Lula"
    Overall

    Lula doesn't disappoint. I laughed so hard at points I nearly ran us off the highway.
