    Two decades after the Civil War, first-generation Irish-American Zachary O'Hara, son of a legendary Marine and a force of a man in his own right, finds himself playing a critical role as the very existence of the Marine Corps is being decided. If he can help persuade the Secretary of the Navy that the Marines will be crucial to America's security in years to come, all the while hefting a heavy, secret weight in his heart, he'll save the Corps and make his career.

    Story

    The book was a bit disjointed and superficial (unlike so many other Leon Uris books which I have really enjoyed.) My biggest complaints, however, were with the recording: 1)some sections seemed to be spliced in out of order--making things quite confusing and 2) on several occasions, I could hear someone laughing in the background.

    In under 10 minutes, 99.9% of the world's population will be dead... or changed. Conversion is instant. Headshots just make them angry. And they're getting smarter. Ken Strickland has made it through the first moments. But his family is still out there. Can he survive? Can he find them? Or will he become one more of the creatures that now rule our world?

    Story

    I have to admit I did not check notice the length of this book until after I bought it, but at only 4 hours and 39 minutes I'm feeling taken advantage of. It doesn't help that the chapters are each only 2-3 minutes long.

    The story is fine and the performance is good, but it feels as if the author is 'milking it' to even get to the 4 hour mark...kind of like my high school daughter stretching a 5 page paper into 10 pages.
