    When the Rho Project’s lead scientist, Dr. Donald Stephenson, is imprisoned for his crimes against humanity, the world dares to think the threat posed by the Rho Project’s alien technologies is finally over. The world is wrong. In Switzerland, scientists working on the Large Hadron Collider have discovered a new threat, a scientific anomaly capable of destroying the earth - and only Rho Project technology can stop it.

    Where does Wormhole rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would say top 25


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack of course. He just had that super spy agent but also a good side that you did not expect.


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

    His voices were great it meant keeping accurate pictures in my head of each characters and never confusing dialogue of one character with another.


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

    Yes and no I enjoyed one after the other and wanted to save it stretch it out. It's hard to find authors who find the perfect reader for their book and come up with a fantastic and complex storyline with too much babble and detail.


    Any additional comments?

    If you have not listened to it. Give it a try

    What disappointed you about World War Z: The Complete Edition (Movie Tie-in Edition)?

    Too many character hard plot too follow if you can call it a plot


    What was most disappointing about Max Brooks’s story?

    The ending didn't deliver you felt like the story didn't go far enough deep enough


    What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

    Too many narrators they were all good but too many voices and each we're multiple characters


    What character would you cut from World War Z: The Complete Edition (Movie Tie-in Edition)?

    I would have cut not the characters but just narrators they were on different levels as far reading and giving life to the story it was distracting changing from someone who reads and gives voice to someone who does not.

    When 15-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder - much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing, not even a smear of blood, to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

    After global devastation, the last remnants of Earth sent a handful of colonists of a distant terraformed world to give humanity one last, desperate chance. Unable to provide the technology required for an advanced civilization, the founders instilled in the colonists a strict code of conduct and gave them a few precious imprinting devices: glass helmets that contain all of Earth's scientific knowledge. Once in a generation, the heir to the province of Laal begins the arduous training required to survive the imprinting of the Glass Helm and acquire the knowledge of the lost Earth.
