    When Alice Love surfaces from a beautiful dream to find she's been injured in a gym, she knows that something is very wrong – she hates exercise. Alice's first concern is her baby – she's pregnant with her first child, and she's desperate to see her husband, Nick, who she knows will be worried about her.But Alice isn't pregnant. And Nick isn't worried.

    "Realistic, funny and touching"
    Overall

    I could hardly stop listening. The story seems very true to reality. I love the way the author interprets her characters, so honest and sometimes very funny. And of course I love Caroline Lee as a reader. It's so easy to listen to her. She is a very talented lady.

    Facing down an unprecedented malevolent enemy, the government responds with a nuclear attack. America as it was is gone forever, and now every citizen - from the President of the United States to the homeless on the streets of New York City - will fight for survival. In a wasteland born of rage and fear, populated by monstrous creatures and marauding armies, earth's last survivors have been drawn into the final battle between good and evil, that will decide the fate of humanity.

    What did you love best about Swan Song?

    This is one of the best books I have ever read. Once started, I just couldn't stop listening. The description of everything, ie. the characters, the scenery etc is so vivid. The best bit was that the book is 36 hours long. I enjoyed every minute of it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Swan Song?

    There are very many memorable moments in this book.


    What does Tom Stechschulte bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He made the characters come alive, reading their lines with feeling and conviction. Tom is an awesome narrator. I'll definitely look out for other books where he narrates. There is just something in his voice......


    If you could take any character from Swan Song out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Oh no, just one? Probably Sista. I am curios to know more of her past, before she lost her child.


    Any additional comments?

    The book was written in the 80's, but you don't notice that at all. I never ever, not even once, thought that this story could not have happened in 2011 or so. This book is a bargain for just 1 credit. Thank's Audible!!!!
