    The world had become used to the metahumans - people sometimes perfectly ordinary, but sometimes quite extraordinary in appearance - who mostly worked with their governments as high-powered peace officers, fighting crime, and sometimes fighting rogue metahumans who had become super-criminals. Then that comfortable world ended in just one terrifying day.

    If you could sum up Invasion in three words, what would they be?

    fun stereotype fight


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Invasion?

    Red Saviour and her 'citizen arrest'.


    What about Nick Sullivan’s performance did you like?

    The vocal performances were all great. A great variable tone in the voices to keep you wanting to listen longer and longer.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    INVASION
    Who is gonna protect you!


    Any additional comments?

    Really enjoyed the story. The end clearly wants another book to be written. Without a follow up book, the end was wrapped up very quickly and left me unsatisfied. However, that feeling was not long lasting as I recalled the full story and my favourite character Red Saviour. She was just awesome.

  • Pride and Prejudice

    Many consider this rich social commentary to be Jane Austen's finest novel. It is certainly among her more famous ones. Austen sets her entertaining study of manners and misconceptions against the backdrop of a class-conscious society in 18th-century England.

    Story

    After investing over 60 hours in Fall of Giant and Winter World by Ken Follett and read by John Lee, I found myself getting a headache at the speed at which this story was being read by Ms. Gibson. I will return to this in the future and give it another attempt but for now this will remain partially listened to in my library.

    Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

    Keith says: "Ken Follett and John Lee / Audible's Dream Team"
    "Detailed, enjoyable history and a great story."

    Story

    Truly drawn into the lives and times of the day. Great points of view from the different families. Always left wondering, between listens, what was coming next and how the families are connected, or not connected.

    Thousands of autonomous computer programs, or daemons, make our networked world possible, running constantly in the background of our lives, trafficking e-mail, transferring money, and monitoring power grids. For the most part, daemons are benign, but the same can't always be said for the people who design them.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I recommend this book to anyone that grew up in the 80's with the dawn of computers and is now seeing the frustrations of economic life.


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

    The plot twists and turns through the path of two main 'hero's'. Which one will be the real hero is the question.


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

    Good voice, didnt lull me to sleep. However, I still smirk when gun shots are read as 'boom'.


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

    One sitting would be too long at 15hours. I listened to it over a week at about 2 hours a day. I didnt mind when traffic was snarled up as I just got to hear more.


    Any additional comments?

    Just downloaded the sequel, Freedom. I hope that it is true to a great start.
