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.

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.

This book captivated me from the first word I heard to the last. The story takes the listener to the turbulent times of the old South when equality was virtually non-existent. Although the story is sad, I found myself laughing out loud several times! There are characters I grew to love and respect and others that I hated!
Kudos to Stockett for a wonderfully written, witty book that I couldn't stop listening to!! Needless to say,I was sad when it ended! This book is definitely a must listen!!!!

Cleary, North Carolina, is a sleepy mountain town, the kind of place where criminal activity is usually limited to parking violations. Not so, lately. Four women have disappeared from Cleary over the past two years. And there's always a blue ribbon left near the spot where each of the women was last seen. There are no bodies, no other clues, and no suspicion as to who their abductor might be. And now, another woman has disappeared without a trace.

My very favorite Sandra Brown book to date!!! I have actually listed to this book at least three times over the last few years!!! The narrator did an excellent job throughout the entire book. Sadly, a narrator can either make or break a book regardless of how good it is. Lang did an awesome job!!!! The plot is unpredictable and edge of your seat suspenseful! This is definitely a must listen!!!

I have become a big fan of Lisa Gardner after listening to two of her books! How in the world does she come up with these plots?! I became engrossed in the story and its characters! This is a very well written and thrilling book, although it does touch on some unpleasant and disturbing content! The narrating was excellently done and made the story even more entertaining! A must listen!!!!

One question, a split-second decision, and Brian Darby lies dead on the kitchen floor. His wife, state police trooper Tessa Leoni, claims to have shot him in self-defense, and bears the bruises to back up her tale. For veteran detective D. D. Warren it should be an open-and-shut case. But where is their six-year-old daughter? As the homicide investigation ratchets into a frantic statewide search for a missing child, D. D. Warren must partner with former lover Bobby Dodge to break through the blue wall of police brotherhood, seeking to understand the inner workings of a trooper’s mind while also unearthing family secrets.

Being a Sandra Brown fan for a few years, I always like to see what new storyline her new books render. I hadn't read (or listened in this case) this book until now and needless to say it isn't one of her best ones. It was entertaining and worth a listen. One of my faves is "Fat Tuesday" as well as "Chill Factor". Those are the classic Brown suspense novels that i personally enjoy!

I have been a fan of Kinsella's since, "Can you Keep a Secret?", but this storyline was just too slow moving and predictable for me. I kept waiting and waiting for something interesting and funny to happen but am disappointed to say nothing ever did. Aside from a few funny parts and the narrator's English accent, the book was a waste of my time. I hate to admit, but I couldn't wait for the end to occur so I could move on to my next audio book. The aforementioned book by Kinsella is absolutely worth listening to though.

The crash of a Dallas-bound jet wasn't just a tragedy to TV reporter Avery Daniels; it was an act of fate that handed her a golden opportunity to further her career. Mistaken for a glamorous, selfish woman named Carole Rutledge, the badly injured Avery would find that plastic surgery had given her Carole's face, a famous senatorial candidate for a husband, and a powerful Texas dynasty for in-laws.

Sandra Brown is one of my favorite authors but this book isn't one of my favorites. The plot was too far fetched and predictable. The sex scenes were too porn-like in my opinion. I'd recommend it only if a reader's expectations aren't too high.
