    In a future uncomfortably close to the present day, the apocalypse has surpassed all expectations. Hideous demons roam the streets in an orgy of terror, drawing pleasure from torturing humans as sadistically as possible. Ira, a young San Francisco artist, becomes involved with a strange group of scientists and philosophers desperately trying to end the bloody siege. But the most shocking revelation is yet to come.

    Laurie says: "Tedious and not what I expected"
    "Poorly written and overly political"
    Overall

    I could not finish this audio book (a first for me). The book is like some hippies romantic daydream where all the time they have wasted is suddenly vindicated. By hanging out and not working or barely working they attain enlightenment and thus save the world from corpratism.

    The worst part is (spoiler) they don't actually seem to do anything to save the world. Much like before the demons arrival, the hippies combat the demons by walking around to demon sites waking people, protected by their lack of ambition err I mean enlightenment.

    If you are living in your mom's basement smoking pot all day and want a feel good story justifying this I suspect you will like this book.

    America faces a full-scale socioeconomic collapse in the near future. The stock market plummets, hyperinflation cripples commerce and the mounting crisis passes the tipping point. Practically overnight, the fragile chains of supply and high-technology infrastructure fall, and wholesale rioting and looting grip every major city.

    Hugh says: "Accidentally Good"
    "Wish I had listened to the nay sayers"
    Overall

    While some of the material may be of value the book is terrible. I own guns, support peoples rights to have guns but don't want to spend my credits listening to a person who sounds like an overblown windbag go into why he does not need a license to deal guns. The same goes for overlong speaches about obtaining parts to convert weapons to full auto or even how to stabalize gas. It is annoyingly overspecific and not even in a what that would lend itself to survival (do I need to know specific brands and manufactures).

    If you really, really, really like guns (as in more than your wife) and want to listen to someone loving describe them in painfully excrutiating detail this is the book for you.

    As a new plague related to the rabies virus infects millions, America recalls its military forces from around the world to safeguard hospitals and other vital buildings. Many of the victims become rabid and violent but are easily controlled—that is, until so many are infected that they begin to run amok, spreading slaughter and disease.

    Flavius says: "Rough, but Enjoyable"
    "28 Days Later meets Blackhawk Down"
    Overall

    A decent listen for those who enjoy apocalyptic fiction. While the characters are generic the action more then makes up for this. I enjoyed the focus on small unit tactics as well as the social/psychological implications of a viral/zombie outbreak.

    I thought it was better written then most zombie fiction and would recommend it to those who enjoy this genre. If you are less interested in zombie fiction the book may not be your cup of tea.
