    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of After Worlds Collide to be better than the print version?

    I never read the print version, but would consider it because the narrator was sort of droll. Of course he was perfect for the era in which the book was written, as these days narration is more dramatic, His voice reminds me of the old radio shows.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would of added more drama to the narration and details to certain findings and technical observations that were just glossed over.


    What three words best describe Peter Ganim’s voice?

    very 'old school'


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

    I enjoyed it and couldn't put it down, it was read in the space of two days. Very original, and I read a lot of Apocalypse books. I loved the descriptions of the new world cities, they were very inventive. I rolled my eyes over the romance which was SO 1930s'! All they needed was wind blowing and melancholy music with the sound of tears dripping and you'd have a movie instead of a book.

    I would of made the story five stars if the narrator could of drawn me in more into the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I think that younger people might find this book sexist but that was just the way things were back then, sexism was probably not intended it was just the way the majority thought and talked. Masculinity and feminism to sometimes nauseous extremes were regarded as the norm,

    Without warning, something has gone terribly awry. In the remote and unnoticed places of the world, small pockets of death begin occurring. As the initially isolated extinctions spread, the world's eyes focus on this unimaginable horror and chaos. Out of the ecological imbalance, something new and extraordinary is evolving and surviving to fill the voids left by these extinctions. Evolution is operating in ways no one could have expected, and environmental damage may be the catalyst.

    John S says: "Good End of World Thriller"
    "The best yet of it's genre!"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Immortality the most enjoyable?

    This book is very realistic, it starts out a bit slow, which ends up being a good thing as it sets up the realism for the rest of the story. Make sure you have plenty of time, because once you get into this book there will be no sleep until it's over!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters grow on you, you feel their pain.


    Have you listened to any of Kevin T. Collins’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


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

    Many!
