    Newbery Award-winner Gary Paulsen's best-known book comes to audio in this breathless, heart-gripping drama about a boy pitted against the wilderness with only a hatchet and a will to live. On his way to visit his recently divorced father in the Canadian mountains, thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson is the only survivor when the single-engine plane crashes. His body battered, his clothes in shreds, Brian must now stay alive in the boundless Canadian wilderness.

    What did you love best about Hatchet?

    I liked that it was based on a true story. I though it was interesting how he survives on instinct. Amazing that his mom gave him the hatchet for a gift just before flying.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Once I go through the weird music and the repetition in the first chapter it turned out to be a good little story. Even my daughter enjoyed. it.


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

    There was some suspense and I felt it was very much from the point of view of a teenage boy which made it a bit annoying at times.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall I liked this book but it was kind of short for a full price.

    Align with the universe, be open to goodness, and harvest the luck that is free all around us. Be confident in your boldness and ability to have good things come to you! This subliminal hypnosis program works for you on three different levels - positive affirmations will be spoken during your deepest state of open relaxation, low binaural beats that are almost imperceptible to the human ear work with your subconscious mind to anchor the positive affirmations for good luck, and ancient Solfeggio tones encourage healing and wholeness with powerful harmonic frequencies.

    Any additional comments?

    Aside from the fact the hypnosis did not work. I did not even find this relaxing enough to fall asleep to because it is made up of horrible screeching sounds and some weird flute playing.

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

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

    I love this book because of the honesty about Steve Jobs including his failures and successes.


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

    At times I felt stressed out and depressed when he went through his times of failure, but I was really impressed at how he stood his ground. Many things I would not agree with Steve Jobs about, but it was very interesting to see how he influenced the computer and animation markets and my generation. He was a character. A good read for anybody who loves thier Iphone. I was truly inspired.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....
