I love suspense, murder mysteries, psycho thriller books most of all! I listen when not taking classes for my masters degree.

    Just days before Chad Williams was scheduled to report for basic training at the Great Lakes naval base, he turned on the television and was greeted with the horrifying image of his mentor and training partner, US Navy SEAL Scott Helvenston, being brutally murdered in a premeditated ambush on the streets of Fallujah, Iraq. Steeled in his resolve, Chad committed himself to completing the US military’s most difficult training to become a Navy SEAL - and avenge his friend’s death.

    I have learned more about the Navy SEAL's and their exhaustive training reading this book than doing any kind of research online. Chad's first had account of what he had to endure during training made me feel as if I was there going through it myself and his personal story of salvation is just as gripping.

    I saw the movie first before I ever knew it was a book (it wasn't mandatory reading in middle school for me). It benefitted me, in my opinion, because I was able to see the movie playing in my minds-eye as I was listening. I enjoyed it greatly.

    A peaceful Minnesota town, where crime is something that just doesn’t happen, is about to face its worst nightmare. A young boy disappears. There are no witnesses, no clues — only a note, cleverly taunting, casually cruel. Has a cold-blooded kidnapper struck? Or is this the reawakening of a long-quiet serial killer?

    Story

    The first time I read this book it was via paperback, which was years ago. After listening to it, it was like I never read it. Tami Hoag is a great writer. I know this was one of her early books and it's actually more of a romance than suspense/murder thriller but it's an awesome combination.

    A serial killer watches and waits. Each time, he takes two victims, preparing the first's body with all the clues the police need to find the second, who is still alive. The clock ticks, and the second one can still be saved. But the police never make it in time. The second one dies. For years, the killer has plagued the city with the same pattern, but the police never pick up on it quickly enough.

    I love her books! There aren't many I don't like. I loved the intensity of this book that held me to my phone and computer every time I started listening to it. I had to contemplate whether or not I would be able to pry my way away from the book if I started listening. Awesome read!

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    I really enjoyed listening to this book. In some ways Tris reminded me of Bella from Twilight which was a bit annoying but she had her moments. If you're reading this before you watch the movie....DON'T WATCH THE MOVIE. You will be highly disappointed in the movie, at least I was. They could have done so much better. Anyways, great book.

    One choice can transform you - or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves - and herself - while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

    This had a good plot twist though I was able to figure it out before they revealed it. I wonder how they're going to work that in the movie. Hope it's better that the first.

    What if your whole world was a lie? What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything? What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected? The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of listeners in Divergent and Insurgent.

    The author had me attached all the way through until the book began to wrap up. I think it could of had a better ending and I totally hated the change up of narrators. If they were going to go that they should of kept Four's voice as a man through all the books. It really messed me up.

    The Psychopath Test is a fascinating journey through the minds of madness. Jon Ronson's exploration of a potential hoax being played on the world's top neurologists takes him, unexpectedly, into the heart of the madness industry. An influential psychologist who is convinced that many important CEOs and politicians are, in fact, psychopaths teaches Ronson how to spot these high-flying individuals by looking out for little telltale verbal and nonverbal clues.

    If you could sum up The Psychopath Test in three words, what would they be?

    gripping, enlightening and entertaining


    What other book might you compare The Psychopath Test to and why?

    The Sociopath Next Door by Martha Stout who he referenced in his book. Both books explored each deficiency using real people as examples and just trying to explain explicitly using theories.


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

    No.
