    When I drive, I read... uhm listen. I like SciFi, Fantasy, some Detective and Espionage novels and Religion. Now and then I will also listen to something else.

    Story
    "Excellent storytelling - though a bit over the top"

    Picking up where "The Second Ship" left the listener, "Immune" throws you back into the world of the Rho Agenda - a world of suspense, muddling and scheming! Preying on our fears Richard Phillips weaves a web of intrigue that makes over the top nonsense seem real.

    In my review of "The Second Ship" I indicated that that book reminder me very much of the comic "Danger Girls" without the girls. "Immune" reminds me of the "Punisher" set loose in the world of "Danger Girls."

    It is quite enjoyable and could stand alone.

    I've either gotten used to MacLeod Andrews voice or he has improved a lot. He kept me from opting out and enhanced the story by using different tones of voice.

    I am amazed how believable Richard Phillips can make that which is unbelievable. If you are a conspiracy theorist or just like considering those possibilities, this book is for you!

    "The storyline took a dive..."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The first book was awesome, the second, not so. The plot took a turn that made no sense, and the parents were supposed to be engineers, yet they had no concept of intellectual property.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Richard Phillips again?

    Maybe


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Didn't have one


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Immune?

    The Vegas arc.

    People say I resemble my dog (and vice-versa). He can hear sounds I can't hear, but I'm the one who listens to audiobooks.

    Story
    "Ripper Good Yarn"

    Richard Phillips first caught my attention with his attention to detail (scientific detail) in The Second Ship, the first entry in his Rho Agenda series. I liked it enough to want to listen to the next entry, but I wasn't ready to dive into it right away. After listening to Immune, I'm going right into Book Three without wasting any more time.

    Less scientifically rigorous but packed with action, Immune continues the story of three Los Alamos high school students who discover, and are empowered by, the technology on a derelict alien space ship. An indestructible CIA agent (known as the Ripper) and his aide help the trio uncover and foil an insidious plot to perpetrate a lot of evil that I won't go into in order to avoid spoilers. There are some memorable bad guys too, some of whom are sure to be back in the third volume.

    Why does one sci-fi series grab me while another leaves me underwhelmed? My reasons may or may not overlap with yours. John Scalzi and Lee Martinez grab me with humor and clever stories. Robert Sawyer chooses controversial subjects and researches them well. Phillips, utilizing his background as a physicist and a military man, has created a credible series of sci-fi thrillers based in contemporary times, building on the Roswell myth.

    "great book>read with caution"

    There are several graphic descriptions of sadomasochistic rape scenes. I would not recommend for a teenager.

    "Thrilling!"

    Unexpected treat in having such thriller/ Mystery wrapped in SciFi, refreshing storyline steeped current tech with a twinge of what-if. All as the mystery/thriller played out in the background. Going for book 3, but it's a tough act to follow.

    Any additional comments?

    This is a very enjoyable series thus far. All the charters have some great depth. It is getting real good. This book could maybe stand alone. However if you just jumped into this story, you would be missing out of a great series. I know I'm on to the next story. check it out. i know you will enjoy it.

    Story
    "Great second book!"

    Immune is the 2nd novel in the Rho Agenda series. The three teens Jennifer, Heather, and Mark must work to stop the government from unleashing evil Rho-ship technologies upon the populace.

    I really enjoyed this book as it had some major action and some really well-developed characters. I most liked the Navajo sheriff Tall Bear, the drug lord, the assassin (chupacabra), and Jack. Also Raul had some interesting development too. There were a few characters in this novel that were so absolutely insane that it had to take the author quite some work and imagination to come up with their thought processes. With the exception of Jack and Janet, most of my favorite characters in this series were introduced in this novel. We also learn more about the technologies and capabilities of both ships, which was really interesting to me.

    As for what I didn't like: The three main teen protagonists really didn't develop a whole lot of this book and spent parts of it unfocused and untasked. And Jennifer... I didn't think it was possible for a character to be such an idiot. She derails a good portion of the book. Dr. Stephenson remained a flat, absolute boring character, and most of his government cronies like the vice president were equally boring. We're in two books here and still have no idea who Stephenson is, what his motivations are, etc. We really see almost no humanity in the man. Thankfully he didn't take as much of a front seat in this novel as he could have. Also this is a really long book and there were some parts that were a bit slow and boring.

    Also surprisingly, the profanity level in this novel was really high. It wasn't necessarily gratuitous, but rather a ton of characters with potty mouths. There were also parts that were gruesome and just plain adult material (rape, murder, etc.). I would have to say that while I thought the first book was upper YA, I think this book is more appropriate to adults, despite the teen protagonists.

    Overall, this was a great novel with lots of action and a bunch of well-rounded characters (except Stephenson). I'm looking forward to the next book.

    I listened to the audiobook and felt that the narrator did a super job. He didn't do a screaming woman the best, and he missed a few voices here and there, but it was extremely rare.

    NOTE: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "Much Ado About Nothing"
    What did you like best about Immune? What did you like least?

    The only thing I liked about this book was the narrator; his voice was like "buttah" and his many character changes were all different and believable; a very talented narrator. This genre may not be for me, but the book read, to me, like an juvenile Hardy Boys story. I just didn't keep my attention, I thought it dragged on and on and the ending was very abrupt.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Richard Phillips? Why or why not?

    I don't think so. If it is similar to the book I just read, it would be a no.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None


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

    I guess so, for those people who enjoyed the story.
