    Homeland Security Secretary Catherine Blaine receives a frightening communication from a hacker identified only by the pseudonym Janus. The message is the latest in a series correctly predicting natural disasters around the world - disasters that, Janus claims, were manufactured, not natural at all. And, according to the email, unless the United States does as Janus instructs, another disaster is coming - a Category 5 hurricane that will hit the Eastern Seaboard and destroy the lives of tens of millions of people.

    Story

    The narration was so bad it was hard to get past that element to enjoy the book. This is one I wish I had read rather than get the audio book. Not only did her voice not fit, she had so many mis-pronunciations and bad accents that is was very distracting. Her butchering of the word archipelago is still stuck in my mind.

  • Ready Player One

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    Story

    Great narration job by Wil Wheaton of a great book. I do wonder how well younger people would relate. Would still be a great book, but growing up in the late 70's and having played all the games referenced and watched the movies/TV shows referenced made it very fun for me.
