    In the present day, as the man-made apocalypse unfolds, three strangers navigate the chaos. Lila, a doctor and an expectant mother, is so shattered by the spread of violence and infection that she continues to plan for her child’s arrival even as society dissolves around her. Kittridge, known to the world as "Last Stand in Denver", has been forced to flee his stronghold and is now on the road, dodging the infected, armed but alone and well aware that a tank of gas will get him only so far. April is a teenager fighting to guide her little brother safely through a landscape of death and ruin.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    What made the experience of listening to The Passage the most enjoyable?

    The narrator. He was awesome. The characters too, there were a lot of really good ones.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Brad Wolgast... Peter... Alicia... This is a really tough one to answer, but if I had to narrow it to just one it would be Sister Lacey because her story was probably the saddest and the loneliest. A close second would be Alicia, because she was such a fighter.



    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but Scott Brick is incredible and I'm so happy he did The Twelve too!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Pray you never meet a Viral!"


    Any additional comments?

    Pi Patel has been raised in a zoo in India. When his father decides to move the family to Canada and sell the animals to American zoos, everyone boards a Japanese cargo ship. The ship sinks, and 16-year-old Pi finds himself alone on a lifeboat with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra with a broken leg, and a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon it's just Pi, the tiger, and the vast Pacific Ocean - for 227 days. Pi's fear, knowledge, and cunning keep him alive until they reach the coast of Mexico, where the tiger disappears into the jungle.

    Where does Life of Pi rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'd say pretty high.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Life of Pi?

    When I realized that there could be two stories here and that maybe the better one wasn't the truer one.


    What about Jeff Woodman’s performance did you like?

    He did an excellent job... I Loved every word.


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

    When the second narrator was talking about Pi's life & childhood in India (And all remnants of his family) being illustrated in the photo album by just four blurry pictures.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a book I'll remember fondly and hauntingly for the rest of my life.
