    A mysterious alien presence unexpectedly bursts out of sacred sites all over the world and begins to rip human souls from their bodies, plunging the world into a chaos it has never before known. Courage meets cowardice; loyalty meets betrayal as an entire world struggles to survive this incredible end-all war. Heroes emerge, villains reveal themselves, and in the end, something completely new and unexpected happens that at once lifts the fictional characters into a new life and sounds a haunting real-world warning for the future.

    First of all, I'd like to state that I'm a huge fan of Whitley Strieber and have enjoyed all of his past work. That being said, 2012 is the most ridiculous, un-entertaining piece of work that I've listened to in my many years as an audible subscriber. The concept is great, and near the middle of the book it's slightly entertaining but not only does it take some time to get there, the ending is, well, silly. Whitley writes better journal posts than this - what gives?

    It used to be pretty easy to distinguish between the bourgeois world of capitalism and the bohemian counterculture. The bourgeois worked for corporations, wore gray, and went to church. The bohemians were artists and intellectuals. Bohemians championed the values of the liberated 1960s; the bourgeois were the enterprising yuppies of the 1980s.

    Overall

    This is one of the most dull, boring tedious books that I have ever listened to. With the exception of the 2nd hour or so, it is filled with uninteresting tangents referencing obscure careers and ideals that would have little interest for the average person. Even the average "Bobo" as defined by the author would have little interest in his ramblings. Don't waste your book credits or your time.
