Violet and Finn were "meant to be", said everyone, always. They ended up together by the hands of fate aligning things just so. Three years into their marriage, they have a wonderful little boy, and as the three of them embark on their first vacation as a family, Violet can't help thinking that she can't believe her luck. Life is good. So no one is more surprised than she when Finn leaves her at the beach - just packs up the hotel room and disappears. And takes their son with him.

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.

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....

Talk about bang for your buck! This book is about 38 hours long! The narrator is outstanding and the story is great. Lots of humor, some history, and some graphic sex thrown in for good measure.
I WILL read it again!

The Hunger Games is a great story, the next one a little less so, and this one a bit less again.
I don't care for the narrator as Catliss though she was OK as other people. Would have been best in the reverse.

As the recent tragedies in Oregon, Arkansas, and Colorado Have shown, children as young as eight years old are capable of murder and violence. No community is safe from this tragic phenomenon, and experts ranging from law enforcement officials to guidance counselors are confused and conflicted about how to approach it.

I read this while driving through a rain storm. Not sure which kept me awake more, the rain or the book. Whichever; this book is certainly thought provoking and will be the subject of many discussions to come.

In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another. A deeply moving novel filled with poignancy, humor, and hope, The Help is a timeless and universal story about the lines we abide by, and the ones we don't.

I listen to audio books while I drive rescue dogs to safety. I lug my laptop in the car to listen to them because Kindles only use a computer voice to "read" the book. I don't have a plug to use my car stereo :( My MP3 player doesn't have enough memory for a book like "THE HELP" and my laptop speakers are pretty good. I lived in Michigan and was a teen in the '60s. That was my time. I heard bits and pieces of what was happening in the south. I never met a black person til '66. I guess I lived a pretty sheltered life. I didn't hear anything about MLK til he died!
This book allowed me to understand, at the grass roots level, what it was all about!
FOUR narrators brought the book to life!
Do not hesitate to get this book, but dedicate alot of uninterrupted time to listen. You will only get angry when you have to press pause!
