“Sounds Like This” – Eric Hutchinson

Sounds Like This - Eric Hutchinson

“…there are moments on “Sounds Like This” when Hutchinson, a Takoma Park-bred tunesmith, conjures vivid memories of Hall & Oates’s Top 40 reign, though not in ways that sound dated or predictable.” –Mike Joyce, The Washington Post

“Eric Hutchinson’s album “Sounds Like This” was a gift from a friend that’s perfect for singing along to in the car, or dancing to in the kitchen while I make dinner.  It’s current and upbeat, while reminiscent of old school sounds.” –Elysha Schickel, RM Staffer

The Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games on Amazon

“…a fight to the death among 24 teenage competitors in a sprawling environment controlled by sadistic game masters. The event is watched by the whole nation on live TV. The winner — and there can be only one — returns to his or her home district triumphant and rich.” –John Green, The New York Times

“Collins is an efficient no-nonsense prose stylist with a pleasantly dry sense of humor. Reading The Hunger Games is as addictive (and as violently simple) as playing one of those shoot-it-if-it-moves videogames in the lobby of the local eightplex; you know it’s not real, but you keep plugging in quarters anyway.” –Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly
