Mockingjay: The Final Book of The Hunger Games Audio Book Customers Review – “Excellent End to the series” I found this to be a wonderful ending to this epic trilogy. It went on so many twists and turns that I had no idea where it would end up. I would guess what would happen next, and though I was right, the book would amp up what just happened to levels I wasn’t expecting. It is quite violent, but that’s the nature of the series, and I applaud it for being so gritty. All in all, this is a series that should be read. Publisher’s Summary Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. Still hungry? ©2010 Suzanne Collins (P)2010 Scholastic Audio What the Critics Say “At its best the trilogy channels the political passion of 1984, the memorable violence of A Clockwork Orange, the imaginative ambience of The Chronicles of Narnia and the detailed inventiveness of Harry Potter.” “Fans will be happy to hear that Mockingjay is every bit as complex and imaginative as Hunger Games and Catching Fire.” Play Sample or
The Mortal Instruments City of Ashes Audio Book Customer Review – “Exciting” After I finished listening to City of Bones I couldn’t wait until book two, City of Ashes was released. To fully appreciate it, I re-listened to book one and then continued straight into book two. The first thing I noticed is the different narrator, which at first I thought would be an issue, but it wasn’t. City of Ashes Publisher’s Summary Clary Fray just wants her life to go back to normal – but that turns out to be impossible.

Natalie Moore is definitely my favorite narrator for this series, she really brings the characters to life with perfect voices and attidues. Great job! I really wish she would have done the entire series… it’s exhausting adjusting to so many narrators and so many different character voices.

Emma by Jane Austen (Dramatic Reading) Audio Book by Jane Austen (1775-1817) Emma is a novel about youthful hubris and the perils of misconstrued romance….As in her other novels, Austen explores the concerns and difficulties of genteel women living in Georgian-Regency England; she also creates a lively comedy of manners among her characters. Before she began the novel, Austen wrote, “I am going to take a heroine whom no one but myself will much like.” Total running time: 16:25:26 CD booklet | Album Art sample mp3 and ogg file 01 – Volume 1 Chapter 1 – 00:20:58 [mp3@64kbps – 10.0MB] [mp3@128kbps – 20.1MB] [ogg vorbis – 11.3MB] Download Emma Jane Austen (Dramatic Reading) – Individual files (55 total) Source: Librivox.org The Hobbit Audiobook Free Customer Review – “Absolutely the BEST” Rob Inglis’s narration is clear and crisp with characters finely enunciated–from the individual dwarfs to Bilbo, from Gandalf to the spiders and the dragon! This reading is better than any dramatization (although there are some good ones) because it combines the best of narration with the value of the unabridged text. Inglis also sings the poetry–haunting and stirring melodies performed beautifully. In a way, Inglis paints the text vocally in the manner that Alan Lee painted the text visually. I am thrilled that audible has made the recordings of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings series available in the US. Publisher Summary Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire.
