    "Unexpected Masterpiece"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely!


    To say that Daimones is an exceptional work, is an understatement. To say it is unusual, even more so. While it lacks the action most science fiction thrives on, Massimo Marino maintains tension almost from the story’s outset and doesn’t let it drop until the story’s unexpected conclusion. With a clarity of language and style few writers achieve, his elegantly painted scenes transport the reader straight to Geneva where, after a windstorm throws the protagonist out of his everyday existence into a surreal but believable one, the reader is compelled keep turning pages to learn the reason why.

    Marino blends renditions of recent news stories with science and mysticism into an explanation that will give the reader reason to question mankind’s current state of affairs. Just as The Matrix gave one plausible explanation to our existence, Daimones offers another.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dan was immediately believable and identifiable. His reactions to the predicments the author placed him in were highly credible.


    What about Jeff Hays’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Hays has an easy reading style that, except of an occasional mispronounced word (e.g.: the initial consonant of chasm as a "ch" rather than a "k", or the "a" of acrid as a long "a"), did not interfere with the "reading" experience.

    "Intelligent Story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a gripping suspense type of story. It starts off ordinarily enough but then you get to a place where chaos unfolds. Where he is searching for people online an there is no one out there...where did everyone go? Amazing award winning story here!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really enjoyed Dan, his character as a scientist a guy that tries to do the right thing and figure it all out.


    Which character – as performed by Jeff Hays – was your favorite?

    The narrator did a great job with the lead character here, really getting across the emotion here.


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

    Would say when things are going crazy and his family is freaking out.


    Any additional comments?

    Very enjoyable listen.

    Story
    "Brilliant post-apocalyptic story."
    Would you listen to Daimones again? Why?

    This was a very interesting story which I thoroughly enjoyed listening to. It is well thought out and a refreshing change from the usual post-apocalyptic zombie novel.If you woke up and discovered everyone outside your house was dead, what would YOU do?Well Dan and his wife Mary have to not only decide what to do, but also how to shield and protect their daughter Annah from the realities which now face them.Thoughtfully written and logical, the decisions, and how they react to each experience make this a really enjoyable story.What happens to the rules when there’s no-one there to enforce them? How long will the internet survive? Are there other human’s out there, isolated and afraid too, and if so, how can you contact them?So many questions, not forgetting the obvious one, what happened?


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Daimones?

    There are too many to choose from.


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

    Definitely!


    Any additional comments?

    An exciting story, with interesting twists and turns and great characters. I thought that Jeff Hayes narrated it well and the icing on the cake was the ending which explained a lot, and yet kept you wanting to know more.
