    In the present day, as the man-made apocalypse unfolds, three strangers navigate the chaos. Lila, a doctor and an expectant mother, is so shattered by the spread of violence and infection that she continues to plan for her child’s arrival even as society dissolves around her. Kittridge, known to the world as "Last Stand in Denver", has been forced to flee his stronghold and is now on the road, dodging the infected, armed but alone and well aware that a tank of gas will get him only so far. April is a teenager fighting to guide her little brother safely through a landscape of death and ruin.

    What disappointed you about The Twelve: A Novel?

    Not nearly as good as the passage. Seems slower paced, contrived.


    What was most disappointing about Justin Cronin’s story?

    Preaching religion.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He's okay.


    Any additional comments?

    Was really looking forward to this book after listening to The Passage. Not looking forward to third book.

  • Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs)
    • By Laura Hillenbrand
    • Narrated By Edward Herrmann

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "...zzzzzzzz..."
    Overall

    Blah blah blah blah blah... Good story made boring, too bad. There a lot of brave men and good stories from WWII, this one is like listening to a text book.
