    In the mid-23rd century, Darwin, Australia, stands as the last human city on Earth. The world has succumbed to an alien plague, with most of the population transformed into mindless, savage creatures. The planet's refugees flock to Darwin, where a space elevator - created by the architects of this apocalypse, the Builders - emits a plague-suppressing aura. Skyler Luiken has a rare immunity to the plague. Backed by a crew of fellow "immunes", he leads missions into the dangerous wasteland beyond the aura's edge to find the resources Darwin needs to stave off collapse.

    Michael G. Kurilla says: "Unique perspective on alien contact"
    "Not Able to Finish"

    Story
    What disappointed you about The Darwin Elevator?

    I found the plotting and characters very weak. Halfway through I just realized that it wasn't getting any better and got off the elevator. The world building left too much unexplained: what are the politics in this world? who comprises the government? why does the richest, most powerful man in the world have to run around and do everything himself? who elected all these creepy people to office? and so on...


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

    The reason why I hanged in there for so long before eventually giving up is because of the reader,Simon Vance, who always manages to bring to life everything he does.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    There is nothing as great as discovering a new book, a new voice. and I always enbark on the journey full of hope. this time the elevator doors closed on my head and crushed it.


    Any additional comments?

    Skip this book.
