    The United States military hides a secret: the completely real existence of eat-your-brains, one-bite-and-you're-dead zombies. The Army has known they exist for over 100, and has been quietly and expertly keeping the secret. Until now. His hometown destroyed, with everyone he has ever known dead and gone, the sole survivor of the massacre at Fall Creek joins a secret military group to combat the single greatest threat our world has ever faced. Unfortunately, his help may come too late.

    Sandra H. Kim says: "Great story, perfect for listening"
    "A fresh approach to the zombie genre"

    I RECOMMEND IT.

    Premise: The government has been covering up zombie outbreaks since President Ulysses Grant’s administration, but now the entire world is being overrun with them. The zombie apocalypse is not coming, it’s already here! The book follows a Special Forces military group called AEGIS (which by no coincidence is the name of the shield that bore Medusa’s head in the Iliad). This group attempts to suppress the rise of ‘walkers’ but time is running out – great suspense without having to wade through a lot of 'zombie-gore'.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to book two in the series.

    For over a hundred and fifty years, the rarest and most valuable substance in the solar system has been mined from the only location where it exists in significant quantity: Jupiter's largest moon, Ganymede. For all of this time, the remote mining outpost has been serviced by clone slaves who are drugged into mindlessness, and all of it has been monitored, controlled, and administered by the artificial intelligence known as Prinox.

    Michael G. Kurilla says: "Tedious and pointless"
    "Great hard sci-fi written in a classic style"

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

    Very thought provoking, but mixed with enough action to keep everything moving.


    What other book might you compare Spindown to and why?

    Asimov, and Clarke stories


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Without giving any spoilers, I was moved by Fowler & Sholve's final scene at the superintendent station.


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

    Buck's explanation at the dock of the spacecraft and Roon's choice to return to a housing compartment
