    All residents of the City have recently died, and they will remain in the City only as long as someone still living on Earth remembers them. On Earth, however, the population has been devastated by a terrible pandemic. Laura Byrd, isolated at an Antarctic research station, may be the only person to have survived the pandemic. But she's running out of time and supplies, and her memories are fading.

    "Dissapointed"
    Overall

    The book seemed to consist of long, detailed, drawn-out descriptions focusing on minutia with no true plot or direction tying them together. In the end no real questions are answered and nothing is resoloved, which is disappointing since the idea behind the book is clever and novel. So much potential, but ultimately so much of my time was wasted listening to this book.

    Kyle McAvoy grew up in his father's small-town law office in York, Pennsylvania. He excelled in college, was elected editor-in-chief of The Yale Law Journal, and his future has limitless potential. But Kyle has a secret, a dark one, an episode from college that he has tried to forget. The secret, though, falls into the hands of the wrong people, and Kyle is forced to take a job he doesn't want, even if it's a job most law students can only dream about....

    "Where's The Ending?"
    Overall

    Great premise, good characters, good story line but then it just ends. Nothing is wrapped up, everyone just disappears or goes home and the story ends. No explanations no wrap-up of any kind, no real ending. You invest 10 hours and your left with nothing at the end except questions :-( I thought Koonz was the only one who did that.

    "Remined me of a William Gibson book!!"
    Overall

    I have listened to over a hundred audio book (way over)and I thought this book was great. I didn't check to see who the narrator was and so did not know it was David Carradine until after I had listened to it. Personally, I think actors make better story tellers than announcers do and I thought Carradine did a good job, his style did not get in the way of the story(I did not stop the book to look up the name of the putz that was telling it).
    The story was compelling and reminded me of a William Gibson book. His charactors are well developed and and have depth. The story moves along well; I was anxious to get back to listening to it. The only bad thing is that this is book one of three and I want to know what happens to the characters!
    The author is more than just a writer of fiction, he lives a lifestyle that is outside the "system", like many of his characters do(there is an interview with him at the end of the book). A little bizzare but he writes very knowledgeably about the subject from that perspective.
