    What’s the point in solving murders if we’re all going to die soon, anyway? Detective Hank Palace has faced this question ever since asteroid 2011GV1 hovered into view. There’s no chance left. No hope. Just six precious months until impact. The Last Policeman presents a fascinating portrait of a pre-apocalyptic United States. The economy spirals downward while crops rot in the fields. Churches and synagogues are packed. People all over the world are walking off the job - but not Hank Palace. He’s investigating a death by hanging.

    What did you love best about The Last Policeman?

    Though there is lots of post-apocalyptic fiction being written, pre-apocalyptic fiction is a much more rare thing and I loved the uniqueness of the concept.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Last Policeman?

    This novel is full of funny, sad and poignant moments. Unfortunately I can't' think of any that wouldn't be plot spoilers, sorry.


    What about Peter Berkrot’s performance did you like?

    I really find a good narrator makes a great book even better and Peter Berkot's was so good I found myself wanting to search out other books he's narrated.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like this one I would highly recommend Charlie Huston's Sleepless, another novel told from the point of view of a cop on a world's that's slowly coming to an end.

  • Ready Player One

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 46 mins)
    • By Ernest Cline

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    What made the experience of listening to Ready Player One the most enjoyable?

    Will Wheaton is an amazing narrator and perfectly suited book. I am a voracious paper reader as well and for me the mark of a great audiobook is one where I feel listening enhances the experience over reading. This would have been a great book regardless but Wheaton makes it even better.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ready Player One?

    I really enjoyed all of the 1980's descriptions, I found myself wanting to download lots of 80's music and movies after listening to this.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It's hard to pin down a favorite, truly the whole book flowed so fell I can't choose.
