James Benton might be the last man on earth. Racing to get to work, he finds random abandoned cars, smoldering pile-ups, and something even stranger. Everywhere he goes there's no grass, no people, not even a bird in the sky. Alone in a barren world, James travels west in search of someone, anyone who might have survived The Quiet.

Attention holding story!
That it had intense moments and just when you thought it would come back down you are hit with another intense moment.
Oh wow...she did great on all...don't think I could pick just one as they were all unique. Her narration between characters pulls you in especially when she is speaking low until WHAM...she builds into the next climatic event or " transforms" back into one of the characters. Well done.
Seriously had hair raising on the back of my neck throughout the story that at one point as the climax was building yet again, my neighbor knocked on my door...oh man...they heard me across the street.
This was my first audio book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I intend to seek out the other works by Robert S. Wilson and narrator RE Lamoureux.
Apocalyptic short story
Love the opening - paints a good picture of a world gone quiet
I thought his voice was really soothing. Would definitely listen to more books read by him.
It's a short book, so listening to it from start to finish would be best
