In a world where nothing supernatural exists, Tess Eckhart is positive she's going crazy. After her complete freak-out at a high school party, her family is too. So much that they pack their bags and move across the country, next to a nationally-renowned facility for the mentally ill. Tess is determined to fit in at her new school, despite the whispers and stares. But when it comes to Luka Williams, a reluctantly popular boy in her class, she's unused to a stare that intense.

I wanted to love it. The idea is a good one. The author recognizes good and evil which is so rare its a novelty. She seems to admit there might be a creator. Also rare that the modern publishing industry let that through. But it made me so depressed! If you can take a lot of angst and hopeless self loathing and insecurity you might really like it.

In a world full of super powers, Felix has a pretty crappy one. He has the ability to modify any item he owns. To upgrade anything. Sounds great on paper. Almost like a video game. Except that the amount of power it takes to actually change, modify, or upgrade anything worthwhile is beyond his abilities. With that in mind, Felix settled into a normal life. A normal job. His entire world changes when the city he lives in is taken over by a super villain. Becoming a country of one city. A city state.

For eons, conquering dungeons has been the most efficient way to become a strong adventurer. Although not everything is as straightforward as it seems. Several questions have always plagued the minds of those who enter these mythical places of power: why are there so many monsters? Where do the amazing weaponry and heavy gold coins come from? Why does the very air fill with life-giving energies? Cal has all of the answers to these age-old questions, for a very simple reason. He is a Dungeon Heart.

Not too long from today, a new, highly contagious virus makes its way across the globe. Most who get sick experience nothing worse than flu, fever, and headaches. But for the unlucky one percent - and nearly five million souls in the United States alone - the disease causes "Lock In": Victims fully awake and aware, but unable to move or respond to stimulus. The disease affects young, old, rich, poor, people of every color and creed. The world changes to meet the challenge.

I recognize that Scalzi can write but I don't always like his stories. This one I kind of loved! It's well written, lots of interesting human characters who interact believably and a hero you can get behind. I am one of those folks who is often haunted by logic flaws which mess up my ability to suspend belief - but for some reason Scalzi managed to get me past those so I could still enjoy walking around in his world.

Imagine for a moment that you are a Dragon. A creature of unimaginable power, unending intelligence and strength, and you've just woken from 10,000 years of slumber. Worse yet, you've awoken underneath a city: Boston, an alien and strange place that defies everything you've ever known. Your last memories are of primordial forests, erupting volcanoes sculpting a developing world, faeries, witches, vampires, krakens, and monsters that feared where you turned your eyes.

Melanie is a very special girl. Dr Caldwell calls her "our little genius". Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don't like her. She jokes that she won't bite, but they don't laugh. Melanie loves school. She loves learning about spelling and sums and the world outside the classroom and the children's cells. She tells her favorite teacher all the things she'll do when she grows up. Melanie doesn't know why this makes Miss Justineau look sad.

Alexander Price has survived gorgons, basilisks, and his own family - no small feat considering that his family includes two telepaths, a reanimated corpse, and a colony of talking, pantheistic mice. Still, he's starting to feel like he's got the hang of things - at least until his girlfriend, Shelby Tanner, shows up asking pointed questions about werewolves and the state of his passport.

Would you listen to Pocket Apocalypse again? Why?

Yes. I like the world and love the humor and many of the characters - and adore the mice.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

For some reason I am drawn to the scene after the initial werewolf attack where our hero tries to save his partner and himself.

It's a good one. Probably in the top 15%. I didn't expect it to be as good as it was and it started off not as good as it is but I have another hour left to go and I love it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Over 90 percent of the population suffers from inflammation or an autoimmune disorder. Until now, conventional medicine has said there is no cure. Minor irritations like rashes and runny noses are ignored, while chronic and debilitating diseases like Crohn's and rheumatoid arthritis are handled with a cocktail of toxic treatments that fail to address their root cause. But it doesn't have to be this way.

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

Absolutely. Because while the diet is very hard to do, it has done amazing things for me!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Autoimmune Solution?

Her explanations of why we eliminate some things and add others is very thorough and clear.

What about Tanya Eby’s performance did you like?

She was good - just not as good as the material.

I couldn't get very far in it. Our heroes stop everything to play video games, even right in the middle of crises; and every woman they meet is a major 'hottie".
