Publisher's Summary

Lincoln Miller, an ex-Navy SEAL turned NCIS special agent, is sent to Aquarius, the world’s only sub-oceanic research facility, located off the Florida Keys, to investigate reports of ocean dumping. A week into his stay, strange red flakes descend from the surface. Scores of fish are dead and dying, poisoned by the debris that turns to powder in Miller’s fingers and tastes like blood.

Miller heads for the surface, ready to fight whoever is polluting on his watch. But he finds nothing. No ships. No polluters.

No oxygen.

Instead, he finds a cloudless sky full of red particles dropping like snow and coating the ocean with a thick film that stretches to the horizon. When a dead blue whale collides with Aquarius, Miller begins a harrowing race to escape the affected area.

Cut off from the rest of the world and surrounded by death, Miller makes his way to Miami, where he discovers just one survivor and the awful truth: The strange phenomenon that robbed the air of its life-giving oxygen was an attack by an enemy reborn from the ashes of World War II. And they’re just getting started.

Miami, Tel Aviv, and Tokyo have all been destroyed. Millions are dead. And if Miller can’t track down and stop those responsible in seven days, the rest of the world is next.

    Story
    "Wonderful Premise"

    I must say I loved the first 3 hours of this novel. I thought the threat of an oxygenless world was fresh and the whole earlier part of the story was tense, fast-paced and wickedly good.

    I didn't, however, feel that the later half of the story held up so well. I really couldn't suspend my disbelief when it came to the 'nazi' ideology and how wide it had spread, or the fact that the POTUS decides to depend on four people to save the world.

    From that point on, I still found it an enjoyable thriller, but I can't say I was genuinely engaged in the story anymore.

    Story
    "THE AIR TASTED LIKE BLOOD"

    NO ONE WANTED TO GOLF DURING THE APOCALYPSE
    I have to agree with the cutie from London, the first three hours were spectacular. An oxygenless world was a FRESH idea. In a world were you can not breathe, who cares about zombies, of which there are none in this. That is about the only thing not in this book.

    LET'S CUT THE GRASS AND HIT THE GAS
    This story takes place under the ocean, in the air, underground, on Air Force One, in fighter jets, on a aircraft carrier, in helicopters, in Poland, Antarctica, Florida and Washington D.C. You will meet Rocket scientists, tiger sharks, a whale, Four Horseman of the Apocalypse, a CONSPIRACY THEORY NUT JOB, a cowboy and NAZIS, CAN YOU BELIEVE IT. Yes, Nazis, my favorite bad guys. The story includes cryo-gentics and anti- gravity. Watch out for the Rumba Army, Foo Fighters and the Fork Bombs.

    GENERALS NEVER GET THIER HANDS DIRTY
    Is this believable, H E Double Toothpicks, no. The name of the book is SecondWorld and it is written by Jeremy Robinson, not Crichton. This is a fun novel. An escapist novel. A fun idea, which will never give you nightmares, cause it can't happen. That does not mean it is not creative and entertaining. Robinson entertains, period.

    Gigante
    Does a great job as usual.

    I have already bought the sequel, Nazi Hunter.

    Story
    "A heading is required"

    Excellent narration!

    Very poor story due to constant attempts to force me to agree with what is evil and what is good..(F-that, give me the story and I alone shall decide)

    Many of the 'evil' characters did not feel fully committed to their paths... severely weakened the story considering how long-term their plan was! (cried? seriously? wth...blah!). Research all of the potential justifications these bad guys may have so you can also sell the other side; that is what draws people in because that reveals who the reader is in the context of the story. Then let the strongest previal (as the author sees fit of course), sit back and collect movie royalties forever.

    I am actually a little upset, disappointed that it is so close to a truly great story! A cliffhanger to a second story - a last minute surprise excape for example - might have saved the overall situation of the story.

    Just a nobody reader - so keep on truckin full speed ahead!

    Story
    "Great deal for $9.97."
    If you could sum up SecondWorld in three words, what would they be?

    Very creative story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    That would probably be the Czechoslovakian, "Cowboy". He was a very interesting character and he brought some humor to the story. He has balls too! That's always good. By the way, "Czechoslovakian" is a bitch to spell.


    What about Phil Gigante’s performance did you like?

    Again, that would be the accents. I listened to a few other books that "PG" has narrated and I always like his performance. I'm usually happy as long as the narrator puts feeling into the characters and doesn't make any of them sound lame. Maybe I need to get out more but I think "PG" is one of the better narrators on Audible.com


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, I didn't freak out or anything and I didn't really laugh either. I might have chuckled once or twice but that's about it. I didn't cry either. I don't think any book will make cry. I'm just too macho.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, but I shouldn't.

    Any additional comments?

    Cool story line..the science behind it is interesting. Of course some of it may seem a bit over the top but you would know that if you read the summary. I think my only complaint is..there seems to be a few to many 'only seconds to live' moments. I'm rather used to these (Clive Cussler fan) but it got to the point that I found myself thinking of something other than the story during these 'episodes'. You know the main character isn't going to be removed so it's simply the logistics of how he'll escape. It's numbing after awhile. That being said..it was an enjoyable listen.

    Story
    "Chilling and fascinating!"

    Perhaps the most feared people since the barbarian hordes that felled the Roman Empire are the Nazis. They blended intelligence, science, technology, and fanaticism beyond any group before or since, and now they're back. Jeremy Robinson blends historical facts with conspiracy theories to bring back the Nazis in a more devastating way than previously perceived, and he does so brilliantly. This is one of his best books, and as a stand alone novel a terrific way for any reader to become acquainted with his work.

    I have read this book twice and now listened to it. Phil Gigante truly helps bring the story to life. His varied accents and vocal changes lend uniqueness to every character. He made my third experience with this book as fresh as my first.

    "the bell tools for who?"

    I enjoyed this version of continuing WWII, blending many aspects of popular culture with a dark hidden twist. It was an exciting read and also held many twists and turns that kept my interest to the point I didn't want to stop listening. Well for the credit!

    "Entirely stupid and perfectly entertaining"
    Where does SecondWorld rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was fine. It rattles along at a decent pace, just switch your brain off and try to ignore some of the scientific nonsense going on and you'll be fine.


    Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante – was your favourite?

    None really. Mr Gigante does a decent job, but characterisation is not his strong suit. Good work on German pronunciation however.


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

    Nope.


    Any additional comments?

    It's daft, pulp, ridiculous nonsense and a fun listen.
