    Eric Riordan was once a wealthy man leading a comfortable, easy life. Until one day Gabriel, his oldest friend, Marine Corps veteran, and a former mercenary, told him how the world was going to end. He did his best to prepare. He thought he was ready for anything. He was wrong. As the dead rise up to devour the living, one man finds himself struggling to survive in the ruins of a shattered world. Alone, isolated, and facing starvation, his only chance is to flee to the Appalachians and join forces with Gabriel.

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

    Great book to pass the time for a long drive. Interesting story line. Good development of the main characters.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Great narrator minus the fact that all the women in the story had a valley girl voice. It could get a little annoying.

    Born to a prominent Chicago judge and his stifled socialite wife, Mia Dennett moves against the grain as a young inner-city art teacher. One night, Mia enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesn't show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. With his smooth moves and modest wit, Colin Thatcher seems at first like a safe one-night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia's life.

    This book was such a surprise - told from 3 perspectives (Eve, Gabe & Colin). Their recount of the story flips between before Mia is found and then after. Kubica perfectly places each chapter so you are left wanting more at the end of each chapter. I'm not usually a fan of multiple narrators but it really worked for this book. The story blurs the lines between who is the good guy and bad guy - leaving the listener to decide. Kubica does a wonderful job developing each character to the point I cried in 1 particular chapter. The best part: once you think you have figured out the ending, she throws a surprise twist at the very end! Listen to the epilogue...

    Story

    The Superpox-99 virus has wiped out nearly the entire human race. Governments have collapsed. Cities have become graveyards filled with unspeakable horror. People have resorted to scavenging from the dead, or taking from the living. The entire industrialized world has become a wasteland of abandoned cars, decaying bodies, and feral animals. To stay alive, U.S. Deputy Marshal Mason Raines must forage for food, water, and gasoline while outgunning those who seek to take advantage of the apocalyptic anarchy. Together with his giant Irish wolfhound, Bowie, he aligns with survivors of the town of Boone in a life and death struggle against a gang of violent criminals. With each deadly encounter, Mason is force to accept his place as one of the nation's few remaining lawmen. In a world now populated by escaped convicts, paranoid mutants, and government hit squads, his only hope to save the townspeople is to enforce his own brand of frontier justice.

    Really enjoyed this book. Has a similar post-apocalyptic story line. However what I loved most about it was the characters. Thought it was great that they are all interconnected somehow. The author switches between 3 different characters telling their story. I found myself wanting the narrator to hurry up because I wanted to hear what was next for Mason or Tanner&Sam! Definitely recommend this. Narrator doesn't ruin the book. Don't let those reviews deter you.

    In a small North Korean village, a young girl struggles to survive. Catastrophic floods have ravaged her countryside. But it is her father's faith, not the famine of North Hamyong Province, that most threatens Chung-Cha's well-being. Is Chung-Cha's father right to be such a vocal believer? Or is he a fool to bring danger on the head of his only daughter? Chung-Cha is only a girl of twelve and is too young to answer such questions. Yet she is not too young to face a life of imprisonment and forced labor.
