    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.

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

    It is a complex story with a lot of characters and time jumps, something that would take me forever to read in the short evenings I have. Listening to the book made me look forward to my hour commute back and forth to work each day.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Twelve: A Novel?

    There were several (literal) jaw dropping story twists that were excellent.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    His performance was good. I prefer women readers myself, mainly because they don't try and sound like a man when reading the dialog of a male character. Mr. Brick fortunately doesn't do much of this either. There is nothing more annoying than a man trying to sound like a woman and coming out sounding like a little girl play acting.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Several laughing points, no crying, but several jaw drops.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a satisfying listen, I enjoyed both the first book and this one. One of the things that is extremely nice is that the listener wasn't left hanging at the end of this book. It was obvious that there will be a third to continue the story, but there was no cliff hanging story line to frustrate the listener; it stopped with a nice wrap up and was given a little hint of continuing story line to add just enough anticipation that the listener will look forward to the arrival of the third in the series.
