    The world of man was brought to its knees with the zombie apocalypse. A hundred and fifty years have passed since man clawed and climbed his way back from the brink of extinction. Civilization has rebooted, man has begun to rebuild, creating new communities and society. It is on this fragile new shaky ground that a threat worse than the scourge of the dead has sprung... Once again, one man finds himself once thrust into the forefront of a war he wants nothing to do with and seemingly cannot win.

    Story
    Would you listen to Lycan Fallout again? Why?

    Absolutely. Mark Tufo's books are must-reads and must-rereads for me. Talbot has become part of the family and while I find myself occasionally yelling at him because he's being stupid, it's because i find myself caring for him and identifying with him. Reliving the adventures only brings him back to life for me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Michael Talbot. Duh.


    What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

    Sean Runnette IS Michael Talbot. His accent, reading style, and everything just brings a lot of life and humor into the book, where other narrators just fall flat.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Talbot's adventures ALWAYS make me laugh and cry. He's real to me, and I enjoy living through the adventures with him.

    Story

    A remote military research station sends out a frantic distress call, ending with a chilling final command: Kill us all! Personnel from the neighboring base rush in to discover everyone already dead - and not just the scientists, but every living thing for 50 square miles is annihilated: every animal, plant, and insect, even bacteria. The land is entirely sterile - and the blight is spreading. To halt the inevitable, Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma must unravel a threat that rises out of the distant past.

    Would you try another book from James Rollins and/or Christian Baskous?

    James Rollins? yes. Christian Baskous? Not unless I was stationed at Gitmo and needed something to "impress" the locals.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    No. It might have, but the reader is so dry, muddled, confusing, grating, and hard to listen to I couldn't tell. He literally made me want to fall asleep and I kept having to rewind the story to understand what he was saying.


    What didn’t you like about Christian Baskous’s performance?

    Everything. His style of reading is annoying, his voice so so monotonous and droning that you want to fall asleep, his enunciation of words and speaking leaves it difficult to understand what he's saying, and he just doesn't read characters well without making them sound as though they're whining.


    Was The 6th Extinction worth the listening time?

    No. I'll just get the actual book and read it and pretend I'm listening to the previous narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    I hate taking cash away from James, but I'm pretty sure I'd like my money back.
