    An airliner’s controls abruptly fail mid-flight over the Atlantic. An oil tanker runs aground in Japan when its navigational system suddenly stops dead. Hospitals everywhere have to abandon their computer databases when patients die after being administered incorrect dosages of their medicine. In the Midwest, a nuclear power plant nearly becomes the next Chernobyl when its cooling systems malfunction. At first, these random computer failures seem like unrelated events.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better narrator who changed voices better and expressed emotion. This reader was not good.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mark Russinovich again?

    Yes, maybe.


    What about Johnny Heller’s performance did you like?

    His voice was odd No expression, No sense of which character is speaking. Just an overall poor narrator. But hey, I'm used to Jeff Gurner who is the best of the best.


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

    boredom and disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    The story could have been more enjoyable had it been presented by a better reader. But still, the story line was lackluster and the ending was like a fizzling candle that had a barely glowing flame that smoldered into smoke and died.

    Particle physicist Jon Grady is ecstatic when his team achieves what they've been working toward for years: A device that can reflect gravity. Their research will revolutionize the field of physics - the crowning achievement of a career. Grady expects widespread acclaim for his entire team. The Nobel Prize. Instead, his lab is locked down by a shadowy organization whose mission is to prevent at all costs the social upheaval sudden technological advances bring.

    Where does Influx rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Loved the book. Probably my favorite by Suarez so far. Although Kill Decision was amazing too, and so was Daemon, oh and Freedom too! They're all good!
