    In this wry take on the post-apocalyptic horror novel, a pandemic has devastated the planet. The plague has sorted humanity into two types: the uninfected and the infected, the living and the living dead. Now the plague is receding, and Americans are busy rebuildĀ­ing civilization under orders from the provisional governĀ­ment based in Buffalo. Their top mission: the resettlement of Manhattan.

    Story

    Agreed with several other folks, it was really tough to get through this, in fact I couldn't finish it. The writing was very metaphor-filled and the jumping around in time was really tough to manage. I listen to audio books while driving and this one took a LOT of effort to follow, and at about the 3/4 point, I gave up. I didn't care about any of the characters and I didn't understand why so little was happening.

    It was written, well in the sense that it was beautiful how he painted pictures of things, but it was tough to care.

    As something dark and deadly takes to the skies over Harrington Falls, Jake Caruso and his friends, Sam Travers and Katelynn Riley, find themselves drawn into a primeval conflict set in motion centuries before. When fresh blood is spilled and the death toll mounts, these three friends will find themselves faced with a terror beyond imagination, one that will require every vestige of their strength, faith, and determination to confront.

    Becky says: "Perfect blend of paranormal and reality."

    Story

    Great listen. I found Joseph Nassise for his book, EYES TO SEE, a few months ago and loved the storytelling, the pacing and the way the story unfolded. I immediately started looking for more of his work and found RIVERWATCH here on Audible. A really great listen, scary story, a lot of "how the hell are they going to get out of this." moments.

    In an urban fantasy that charts daring new territory in the field, Jeremiah Hunt has been broken by a malevolent force that has taken his young daughter and everything else of value in his life: his marriage, his career, his reputation. Desperate to reclaim what he has lost, Hunt finally turns to the supernatural for justice.

    I had just tried listening to a zombie story that was nowhere near as good as it sounded. This one came along as a suggested book and the synopsis sounded great. AND IT WAS!! I can't wait for the next book in the series!

    The Unincorporated Man is a provocative social/political/economic novel that takes place in the future, after civilization has fallen into complete economic collapse. This reborn civilization is one in which every individual is incorporated at birth and spends many years trying to attain control over his or her own life by getting a majority of his or her own shares. Life extension has made life very long indeed.

    Story

    I absolutely love the story in this, the pacing. The second book, The Unincorporated War is a completely different style, but they all tie in so beautifully. I love this book and I have been suggesting it to family and friends big time ever since.

    The performance is fantastic. Todd McLaren did Halo: Fall of Reach as well and is fantastic.

    Whether you like philosophy, sci-fi, or just a damn good story, you should check out this entire series.
