    What Paige Campbell saw when she opened a door into 70 years from now scared the hell out of her. She and her Tangent colleagues brought their terrible discovery to the President and were met with a hail of automatic gunfire after leaving the White House. Only Paige survived.

    There has always been a looming question in the mind of man. Will the human race become extinct one day? This is a story of Galos Gann, the last great scientist on Earth, who attempts to save humanity from oblivion. So take a journey into the outer twilight of your mind. Turn off the light, sit back and relax, close your eyes and enter the infinite universe of your imagination.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was hard to get over the over dramatic narration. And the vastly over produced music.
    The last 4 chapters are nothing but crapy music.


    What was most disappointing about Edmond Hamilton’s story?

    story was ok.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I'd wait for it to come out on video

    First the asteroid would come, slamming into the earth just north of the Montana border, followed by earthquakes, tsunamis, and unending night. And after that... Hell. Astronomer Marty Chittenden is the first to recognize the approaching doom - a discovery that makes him a marked man. Green Beret Jack Forrest knows the catastrophe is inevitable and begins stockpiling an abandoned missile silo with supplies while gathering together a small community of men, women, and children he prays can survive the apocalypse.

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

    if you liked "Lucifer's Hammer" & "The Road" you'll like this one too.
    there were a few times i thought the author glossed over important points & scenes.
    but a fine book that makes you think: what would I do?
    i would buy the second book if there was one.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    characters are standard stuff here. i felt like the author had a much longer story to tell and had to cram it into this length. i would love to see a new story form him with longer descriptions of just how F***D up things can be at the end of the world. even more then he did in this tale.


    Any additional comments?

    ok, look. if you love apocalyptic stories get it and like it. its pretty ok. but its not some riveting adventure. i mean it has blood guts and tears, no doubt. and all the good parts are good. it's "The Road" light. it could even be in the same universe as "The Road".
    made me want to buy a titan missile site.

    After nearly four years, the zombie epidemic has almost burnt itself out. Gus' new life on a communal farm is peaceful. The daily routine of policing the fields is rarely disrupted by straying undead. His drinking binges are over. Long days have thrown time over the memories of Annapolis. But this will all change.

    What does R.C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    the voice of death grinding your bones.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yup


    Any additional comments?

    Having gone throught the mountain man books I loved the ending. Simply the coolest set of zombie books out there!

    Greed, terrorism, and simple bad luck conspire to bring mankind to its knees as a viral infection spreads out of control, reducing those infected to undead horrors that feed upon the rest. It's a time of misery and death for most, however there are some who are lucky, some who are fast, and some who are just too damned tough to go down without a fight. This is their story.

    it was ok. it was like listening to the cliff notes of a zombie story read buy some guy off the street. the good guys are good. the bad guys are bad. oh, and occasionally some dead heads mix things up.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    bad fake voices and a strange cadence.


    Any additional comments?

    go ahead. get it. but only if your a z junky.

    We live across the thousand dunes with grit in our teeth and sand in our homes. No one will come for us. No one will save us. This is our life, diving for remnants of the old world so that we may build what the wind destroys. No one is looking down on us. Those constellations in the night sky? Those are the backs of gods we see.

    What does R. C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    the Mountain Man books are by far some of the best Zombie horror stuff I've found so far.
    it was really fun to follow the stories. its standard stuff for apocalyptic fiction but i have to say, these stories made me frightened at times. I'm the guy who's listened to all the Z fiction and for me to be up at night is saying something. so good I wanted more. and the narration is excellent!
    as dark as "the Road" but with more bullets and more drinking!
    RED RYE!

    Joe Haldeman is the esteemed Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of The Forever War. Things are going nowhere for lowly MIT research assistant Matt Fuller - especially not after his girlfriend drops him for another man. But then while working late one night, he inadvertently stumbles upon what may be the greatest scientific breakthrough ever. His luck, however, runs out when he finds himself wanted for murder - in the future.

    Some Time books can be sort of crushing, all "paradox" this and "I went back to change it all" that.. This story is nice and simple and easy to enjoy. and that's what i did, enjoy it.
    It had all the good parts about practical time travel coupled with a nice story.
    recommended.

    This stand-alone work is widely regarded as Asimov's best science fiction novel. Andrew Harlan is an Eternal, a member of the elite of the future. One of the few who live in Eternity, a location outside of place and time, Harlan's job is to create carefully controlled and enacted Reality Changes. These Changes are small, exactingly calculated shifts in the course of history, made for the benefit of humankind. Though each Change has been made for the greater good, there are also always costs....

    Would you listen to The End of Eternity again? Why?

    This is one of Asimov good ones. His books can come off dry sometimes and i was skeptical at first. but after a little bit the story picks up and had all the timey wimey stuff i was looking for. to quote some modern Dr.who.
    If you liked "The first men" this book will be a good follow up.
    enjoy

As the plague spreads laws become meaningless and the military helpless. Civilization is collapsing from within.

    Could you see Ammon's Horn being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    nope
