Publisher's Summary

Christin Kinsey started the day with nothing more pressing than an English exam. But when an EMP attack knocked out all technology across the globe, she found herself in the mountains of Georgia trying to stay alive in a world suddenly thrown back in time 100 years or more.

And when she starts shooting lightning bolts out of her hands, things get really weird. Christin, her younger brother Matt, and Matt's cute friend Dave have to figure out what this new world is about, why they suddenly have super powers, and what happened to their mom in this apocalyptic fantasy novel geared for audiences 16 and up.

    "good story ruined by bad narration"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    no, the narration was horrible. There are times you hear the pages being turned, the accents are horrible southern twangs, and there are multiple times the narrator starts reading and stops the sentence and repeats it.


    What didn’t you like about Iesha Nyree’s performance?

    the terrible accents, her starting sentences then stopping and repeating them. The fact you can hear her breathe and pages being turned. The hiss of the recoding the entire time. This might be a better read than a listen


    Do you think Genesis needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Only with a new narrator


    Any additional comments?

    This might be a better read than a listen

    Story
    "Wolverines!!!!!!!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Genesis the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed listening as each of the characters grew into their powers. Hearing the description of each one using their element somehow made it a bit easier to visualize.

    I always enjoy hearing what the narrator does with each character's voice.

    It makes me want to go back and listen to one of John's books that I have already read!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Genesis?

    Having frequented the Downtown Asheville area, one of the most memorable moments was when the group comes back to it, post event. Picturing the city in a post event state is a lot easier when you have been there before.


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

    Iesha did a great job giving each character their own voice and captured the emotional moments very well. The exchange with Dave and his parents sticks out quite a bit.


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

    I always chuckle when I read a Hartness book. I am a huge GEEK so most of his movie, tv show, gaming and geek culture references make me laugh.

    Losing Mr. Freeman wasn't something I saw coming so that got me a little.


    Any additional comments?

    I've lived in NC my entire life so I deeply understand some of the religious/cultural tones and really appreciate the way 'the group' handled those moments. I am not sure progressive believer is the right term BUT I echo exactly what Mr. Freeman told the kids about their new found powers. And I won't quote it here because you should here it for yourself :)
