So so good. Ray Porter is the BEST narrator out there - with Scott Brick in second place. I'm listening to an entire new genre of books just to listen to Ray's voice! Quite a bit of swearing - I have to watch with kudos around and I have on speaker. But I was in the military (AF) and it's hard to be in combat and not swear! I hope there are MANY more to come. And Ray - no days off, ok honey? I'm running out of books you've done already to purchase!!

In private, 17-year-old Brandon hacks bank accounts just for the thrill of it. In public, he looks like any other tattooed bad boy with a fast car and devil-may-care attitude. He should know: he's worked hard to maintain that façade. With inattentive parents who move constantly from city to city, he's learned not to get tangled up in things like friends and relationships. So he'll just keep living like a machine, all gears and wires.

I liked the idea. I liked the beginning and the middle. I just thought the end was weak and I wouldn't mind hearing this idea in an entirely other story. Narrator was great. No crazy sex. No crazy swearing. Easy listen. Worth if getting on sale. 👍🏻

Audie Award, Fantasy, 2016. As the smallest dragon in the Heartstriker clan, Julius survives by a simple code: keep quiet, don't cause trouble, and stay out of the way of bigger dragons. But this meek behavior doesn't fly in a family of ambitious magical predators, and his mother, Bethesda the Heartstriker, has finally reached the end of her patience.

Ok. I like young adult novels. And I listen to a book a day. I own hundreds. I listen for 2 hours and it kills me not to finish a book but I can not suffer any longer. Slow. Borrowing. And I like dragons!!! Such a shame. Narrator is fine. It's the story. Wish I liked it. Everyone else seemed to.

He’s the kid no one knows, no one talks to, and everyone hears disturbing rumors about. So why is my sister, Brontë, dating him? One of these days she’s going to take in the wrong stray dog, and it’s not going to end well.BronteMy brother has no right to talk about Brewster that way — no right to threaten him. There’s a reason why Brewster can’t have friends — why he can’t care about too many people.

I own hundreds of audible books. I live with chronic pain and it's how I get thru my days. I always fill in the stars but I think this is the first review I've actually written. (Except maybe for Jack Reacher)
I LOVED this book. I bawled like a baby. And it may be targeted for a YA audience. But some of my favorite books are YA novels. (Hunger Games, etc...)
I LOVED all the narrators. Usually switching around bugs me, but not in this book. It's worth a credit - if you find it on sale DON'T pass it up. SOOO good!

With nine straight number one New York Times bestsellers and over 17 million copies in print in the United States alone, it's easy to see why the New York Times has anointed Lee Child as "the best thriller writer of the moment". Now, as fans anxiously await the next full-length Reacher adventure, Child delivers a riveting new short story featuring the world's most beloved vigilante hero, Jack Reacher.

I’m pushing aside the memory of my nightmare, pushing aside thoughts of Alex, pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my old school, push, push, push, like Raven taught me to do. The old life is dead. But the old Lena is dead too. I buried her.I left her beyond a fence, behind a wall of smoke and flame. Lauren Oliver delivers an electrifying follow-up to her acclaimed New York Times bests eller, Delirium. This riveting, brilliant novel crackles with the fire of fierce defiance, forbidden romance, and the sparks of a revolution about to ignite.

"Ninety-five days, and then I'll be safe. I wonder whether the procedure will hurt. I want to get it over with. It's hard to be patient. It's hard not to be afraid while I'm still uncured, though so far the deliria hasn't touched me yet. Still, I worry. They say that in the old days, love drove people to madness. The deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don't."

Bought on a whim during a sale. Such a great book! I can't wait to listen to the next 2. Great YA book but still wonderful for a 41 year old woman.

Loved the narrator. SUCH feeling as she told the story.

Ok. Gotta go buy #2!
