Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Great teaser"

    This was a good book just way too short. This would make a great mini series for TV.

    Story
    "Wow...what if this really happened!"
    If you could sum up The Quiet in three words, what would they be?

    Attention holding story!


    What did you like best about this story?

    That it had intense moments and just when you thought it would come back down you are hit with another intense moment.


    Which character – as performed by R E Lamoureux – was your favorite?

    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.


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

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Love the story - wish it was longer"
    If you could sum up The Quiet in three words, what would they be?

    Apocalyptic short story


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Quiet?

    Love the opening - paints a good picture of a world gone quiet


    What about R E Lamoureux’s performance did you like?

    I thought his voice was really soothing. Would definitely listen to more books read by him.


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

    It's a short book, so listening to it from start to finish would be best
