The mountains of DeKalb County, Alabama, were majestic, tranquil, inspiring, and isolated. Just the type of place a man like John Grey would choose to call home. A land where he was king of all he surveyed. A land where he could be God himself, if he chose to be. Until those kids moved into the cabin below the ridge.
It had been perfect at first for the four young people. Friends since their broken childhoods, now they stood together at the threshold of adulthood. They were a family by choice, not by nature. When supplies dwindled and society failed, so did the rules of civilization and the mountain closed in. Not all predators walk on four legs.
The Grey Matter is a novel of white-hot suspense where life is unpredictable and survival is paramount. Who is a friend and who's the enemy?

An unusual audiobook containing a serial killer, abused children and an apocalyptic event! The story revolves around a group of teens that live in a cabin in the mountains; they find themselves fighting to survive against the collapse of society, a serial killer, hunger, and some desperate and psychotic people. It is fast paced story that keeps your attention and takes you on a violent journey of anarchy and death. The characters are interesting and you soon become invested in the teens survival. The narration fits the book excellently; from children to serial killers, the narrator manages to give life and personality to each of the characters. It is an unusual and interesting storyline, but I did feel that it could have been a bit more suspenseful in parts and I found the gory scene in the hotel a bit too strange. Overall it is interesting, has great narration and is worth listening to. I received this audiobook at no cost in exchange for an honest review
Avid reader who is also a mommy. Audible saved my reading time!
The premise for this listen was a good one. The end of civilization forces a group of abused teenage friends to kill or be killed. A serial killer is suddenly without a steady supply of victims. Who will survive?
The story kept me listening until the end to see if the teenagers would be able to outpsycho the psycho...and all of the rest of a small town that goes crazy when the EMP hits. I was rooting for the kids and it kept me listening until the end.
It would have been more believable if the dialogue had been a little better.
Joe Hempel was a decent narrator and brought the story to life.

That the kids in the cabin were all so close and had much respect for each other
The narration by JOE HEMPEL was excellent. He has great vocal skills and voice inflections. I really liked him in this book as he had the perfect voice for the characters. I've listened to him before and he reads at a very professional level
The story was interesting and compelling. It had twists and turns and shows that life is what you make for yourselves

I have been an avid reader all my life. Everything from True Crime to Time Travel. Now that I am retired, I read even more.
Okay, I could not put this book down. I really enjoyed it and even though predictable, was cheering for the "good guys". The characters were well developed but too goody two shoes. NO teenager is that perfect and all four of these were every Mother's dream. The story and narration were good. Even though the main characters were a bit unbelievable, it is a good read.

This was good from beginning to end I did not struggle with this novel at all the narration was good. It was really enjoyable Ms. Billie Sue continue being a good author and Mr. Joe continue being a good narrator.
That the kids in the cabin were all so close and had much respect for each other.
Yes. When all the electricity went out and things took a turn for the worst, all of the crazies came out and the world became a scary place.
When the crazy neighbor was tied up, and there were several other scenes that were good too.
When Caleb found his parents.
This book was a lot better than I expected. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and the narrator kept it very interesting.

I enjoyed listening to this book. Nothing supernatural here. Just a great book about what could possibly happen after a large scale EMP attack on the US. Pretty good character development, but never really got attached to any of them. Probably liked Josie the most, but I'm sure that's because she was essentially a damsel in distress from a downtrodden family.
Narration was very good in my opinion. Smooth and fluid. Good emotion when needed, and rather animated throughout.
Overall, good book and worth a listen if you like Apocalyptic type scenarios.

Yes, intricate suspense that had me wanting more.
Well, what came to my mind, somewhat reminiscent of The Stand. Good against Evil. Realizing The Stand is a Classic and over 1300 pages long. But in the most general sense, that was what came to mind.
Caleb, Ben and Abe
Sorry, I'm drawing a blank on this question.
