    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.

    Would you listen to Influx again? Why?

    I might listen to it again with a friend because while I like the book its good book to read once, but listen to it a second time with someone else to experience through their experience for the first time.


    If you’ve listened to books by Daniel Suarez before, how does this one compare?

    this is my first book.


    What about Jeff Gurner’s performance did you like?

    I like how his voice action mad each character sound different, how he made what the character was saying and doing be reflected in their voices like when someone falls away in the distance the sound fades out. Also they went an extra step and all artificial voices like radio and robots all sound like they are coming through some kind of artificial sound source. They even added music to certain moments in the book to add emotion. I thought that was really an improvement. I wish all books did that.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, but I can't mention it without spoilers.


    Any additional comments?

    While I understand others reviews about this book being negative especially the science parts, I feel their a little unjust since this isn't really science fiction as much as a science thriller acting in the guise of science fiction. So I can forgive the lapse in science to tell a good story. Others also rage about the stereotyped characters, but stereotypes exist for a reason and I found that a lot of those characters are very believable for our world and government developing the way it did and dose even to this day. So I personally had no problem with them. Give this book a try. Its at least as good as a once watch summer blockbuster.
