    Kyle Riggs is snatched by an alien spacecraft sometime after midnight. The ship is testing everyone it catches and murdering the weak. The good news is that Kyle keeps passing tests and staying alive. The bad news is the aliens who sent this ship are the nicest ones out there.

    What did you love best about Swarm?

    The book started off a little slow but you have to stick with it. The slow start actually adds to the story by leaving the reader slightly confused as the main characters but this does not last for long. Once the story developed I was not able to put the book down. B.V. Larson did a wonderful job of bringing in a realistic interpretation of how we as humans would have to deal with beings that are AI (artificial intelligence) based. I could see this story developing in the world of today.


    What other book might you compare Swarm to and why?

    I also read Jack Campbell's "Lost Fleet" series and I would say they are similar. "Swarm" is not as hard core military sci-fi as "Lost Fleet" since it seems to be a little lighter in military/battle detail but B. V. Larson's series is a wonderful addition to the genre.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    At first this was not a book that I would have wanted to listen to in one sitting but once I was past the introductory chapters I did find myself finding time and ways to increase my listening time dramatically. I could not put it down.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

    Story
    (1055)

    In the near future, at a moment no one will notice, all the dazzling technology that runs our world will unite and turn against us. Taking on the persona of a shy human boy, a childlike but massively powerful artificial intelligence known as Archos comes online and assumes control over the global network of machines that regulate everything from transportation to utilities, defense and communication. In the months leading up to this, sporadic glitches are noticed by a handful of unconnected humans - a single mother, a lonely Japanese bachelor, and an isolated U.S. soldier....

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

    This book was a great read I could not put it down. The performance was well done and the added to the story.


    What about Mike Chamberlain’s performance did you like?

    Mike Chamberlain did a great job bringing the characters to life and adding to the flow of the story.
