    Just a generation ago this place was called America. Now, after the worldwide implementation of UN-lead program called Agenda 21, it's simply known as the 'Republic'. There is no president. No congress. No Supreme Court. No freedom. There are only the Authorities. Citizens have two primary goals in the new Republic: to create clean energy and to create new human life. Those who cannot do either are of no use to society. This bleak and barren existence is all that 18-year-old Emmeline has ever known.

    "Great story. Scary Thought"

    Story
    Where does Agenda 21 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was my first audio book, but I loved it. Listening to the story really puts you in the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Agenda 21?

    the various "How did this happen" type scenes were memorable. Hearing all the different versions of how it happened goes to show how easy it is to change real history and it gave me goosebumps even thinking "What If".


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The escape scene was an exciting moment. Also left me wondering.... Did they really make it?


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

    Having to give up the child she gave birth too. That was heartbreaking. And hearing the Recycle center being used when they talk about people who are gone. That was sad too


    Any additional comments?

    If you can get past the big name on the book you should give it a chance. Harriet Parke did a wonderful job on this book. She put her heart and soul into this and it is worth reading. I gave it a shot and was not disappointed at all.

    Story

    The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of 30 million souls, to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet.

    Story
    Would you listen to World War Z again? Why?

    Of course. I have listened 2 times already. I just really enjoyed it. Made a zombie Apocalypse seem a little more personal. Rather than constant kill kill fight scenario's. (Not that there is anything wrong with that)


    What did you like best about this story?

    The various points of view.


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

    Well most of them were well know actors and actresses so yes. I have seen them perform before.


    Any additional comments?

    One word.. Unabridged.
