    Any additional comments?

    Not a five star series, but entertaining. I see some reviewers don't like that some things are not all that realistic. To them I say, this is Fiction. What I tell my wife when it comes to science fiction, just believe it is possible and enjoy the ride. One reader was disappointed that the good guys might win in this series. It's not reality he said. What's up with that? Why can't you have a feel good book? The game of thrones crap only goes so far before you just can't digest the depression anymore. Books and movies are an escape. Feeling good at the end is a good thing. If you want to read about bad guys, then read non fiction. Humans have plenty of bad guys that come out ahead. My only gripe of this book is that the author uses a poor ploy to get you to buy the next book. He likes to end his story from book 2 and on, right in the middle of a cliff hanger. That actually makes me a little miffed, like maybe I should not buy the next one just to show him what's up. But I buy them anyway. Also, Daniel Ash, the supposed hero, is really dumb. He always asks the stupid questions at the wrong time. You can just count on it. I wish there was a better hero to cheer for but what the heck. The stories move along nicely and they are well read. Great for the over the road trucker.

    I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)

    "15 "key" characters but can't any of them apart"

    It feels like the author farmed this out to some writing company that got paid by the word but didn't understand there was supposed to be suspense. There are way too many characters (5 or 6 different groups - so about 15 characters, very few of which were distinguishable from the others: both their names and perspectives were so similar)

    Each set of characters were located in dif places which I guess was intended to give a wider view of the goings-on, but... it was just boring. Group A did XYZ, Group B did XYZ as well, Group C got killed, and so on.

    There was no tension or suspense... just a lot (a LOT) of talking and jumping between different groups doing the exact same things just in different locations. We don't get to know any of the characters, and don't care about any of them, and other than Ash and Olivia from the first book (whose names stand out) and the pop-in Indian character (no idea where he came from, ended up, or why), we can't really tell any of the characters apart: Matt, Mark... which is which? Who's wife was sick? Why did all these random people get blown up?

    I am glad I didn't buy any more in this series. This book is way too boring to waste time on, and went so far downhill from book 1 that I can't imagine what book 3 would be like. The narration is fine, just the material is suspense-free. There is no sex or gore or swearing.

    "Argh! Cliffhanger Warning -Not Quite a 4 Star Book"

    This is the second in the series, you should read the first book, Sick, before or you'll be lost. Even with that there were times I had to rewind to remember where I was. There are quite a few side stories going on as we come up to ID or Implementation Day. The day Project Eden gives the human race a do-over by killing all but 70 million people on the planet. Kinda scary when you think about it. Of course I started to get a cold in the middle of reading this book. One thing for sure... Make sure you have book 3 before you end this one. It's got one hell of a cliffhanger! I was yelling at my iPhone when it ended I am so frustrated. But I enjoyed the read and I really like this narrator. He does good accents and there are quite few in this book.

    I love espionage and detective thrillers but will listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "In Exit 9 the suspense continues to build"

    Project Eden is a continuing series that can be thought of as a single 60 hour book, so each of the first 6 books end with a lot of uncertainty and unresolved issues. The suspense builds up to a point that very few action thrillers can match. Along with the Jonathan Quinn series Project Eden establishes Brett Battles as one of the best thriller writers ever. Exit 9 is the second book in the series.

    McLeod Andrews narrates the Project Eden series and he does his usual great job.

    Story
    "What a great sequel!"
    What made the experience of listening to Exit 9 the most enjoyable?

    I had read and listened to the first book, "Sick" and was spellbound by it and was overwhelmed by "Exit". I liked the story, the reader and the 'edge of your seat' feeling. In fact, I liked it so much I purchased the entire series to read.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I was kept in suspense because all the characters were at some point or another in jeopardy but didn't escape by a quirk. The whole thing worked


    What does MacLeod Andrews bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr. Andrews didn't play voices or make light of the reading. He read it in such a way that I felt he actually was there and the story was real. Even though I read the rest of the series, I would eventually like to listen to Mr. Andrews read all the other books.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "Is Project Eden deciding your fate?"


    Any additional comments?

    For goodness sakes, listen and read this series. It will knock your socks off!!

    "I keep hoping that disaster strikes... nope"

    Well it was entertaining, but I think there are a lot of books in this series and it just seems like its one of those books where the bad guy is always gonna get stopped by the end of tge book . kinda getting bored with the series.

    "The story continues!!!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, but only after they read the first one of course.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Exit 9?

    When the button was FINALLY pushed, and the person who did it!! I did not see it coming


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

    Just the first book in this series. It was the same.


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

    No, not really


    Any additional comments?

    The ending was so abrupt that I pulled over on the side of the road and downloaded the next book!! I JUST had to hear what happened next :)

    "Riveting, but deeply flawed"

    I'm losing interest in the series with the second book. Scientific inaccuracies and plot flawed are becoming ridiculous.

    Good narration

    Spay, neuter, adopt, and train. Don't buy, surrender, or breed. Be a good person and carry a weapon just in case.

    "Gripping and captivating, excellent narration"

    After listening to Sick and being captivated by the Project Eden series I couldn't wait to listen to Exit 9, part 2 of the series. And the second book totally lived up to expectation, a roller coaster that captivated me and kept me wanting more. Brett Battles has really pulled off an excellent gripping series and the Project Eden series is highly recommended.



    The narration by Macleod Andrews is as always excellent - great differentiation between characters with his tone of voice and style.
