    Loved this book! Not my typical genre (End of Days / apocalypse).

    Kinda like a western, where the tough lone man is the hero A hint of romances...

    VERY FAST MOVING AND ENTERTAINING.

    "Fast-moving adventure in a cool future world!"

    I rolled the dice on this one, based on reviews--and I was definitely NOT disappointed!

    In a dystopian future world where remnants of past technology still hang on, Three is a drifter, a scavenger, a hunter, an all-purpose badass. But he's also a little bored. Something's missing--and then, as he sits in a bar, drinking away his latest payoff, a woman and her son appear, begging him for help.

    Their journey takes us through first-time author Jay Posey's intriguing futurescape: blasted cities, frontier villages, safehouse bunkers, all places to hide from the terrifying Weir who walk only at night. Some human badasses also stalk the trio, and the action keeps going from almost the very start as Three and his charges get into and out of one scrape after another.

    Some of those scrapes are standard fare for a SF/apocalyptic novel, but the author kept the tension going through the characters themselves. Each has secrets that can make or break any situation they get into, so even when I was able to guess what might befall the travelers, I couldn't tell how things were going to shake out.

    The world itself was pretty interesting, too, combining elements of a standard post-apocalyptic setting with a Gibson-esque cyberpunk tone. We never find out what happened to the world we know now, but that isn't a big deal, as the details of the future world stand in for a full-on explanation.

    Luke Daniels narrates this competently, with an Eastwood-ish voice for the title character. Overall, exciting and very fun. Looking forward to the rest of this series!

    "Addicting Read"

    This is a hard one to review without giving spoilers. It gets going immediately and pulls you into the chase at a good pace. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I think they should have given us more answers. ARGHH! I really want to comment on the end but I won't do it. This is definitely worth the credit or full price.

    "Great book"

    This is a futuristic epic adventure book that from what I have read on line was the authors first book "just to get a book finished". That said, it was really good! There are a few things he did wrong, in that he did not give a good world building picture. It takes place on Earth in the very distant future where people can get enhancements to their mind or body and they are hooked up to through a chip to a matrix type computer. They also need to live in enclosed cities do to the "Weir" creatures that wonder the planet at night. These Weir creatures are altered humans whom have been captured by the Weirs and altered into kind of mindless animals but they do not eat anyone but only seem to kill or capture people to be altered into Weir. No idea of where, how or anything regarding the process except it scares everyone. I did not like what happened to the main character, Three, at the end of the book and that might make or break me on any second book unless it gets great reviews. I won't spoil it though.

    "WOW! Can't read to read Jay Posey's next novel!"
    If you could sum up Three in three words, what would they be?

    Really
    Freaking
    Goood


    What other book might you compare Three to and why?

    The main character reminded me a bit of Roland from Stephen King's Gunslinger series.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    The narrator was really good.


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

    Yes... I inhaled this book. It was so good I didn't want to stop reading. After the book was done I had that sort of sad feeling that comes when I finish a 5-star book.
    I will definitely be reading this one again.

    "A Fast-Paced Story in a Post-Apocalyptic World."

    Three is set in a fast-paced, post-apocalyptic world with patchy human settlements scattered around hostile and unforgiving land. The amount of scientific and technological concepts and innovation is minimal but satisfying.

    Remember that feeling when you hear things like "microfilm" and "magnetic tape" on an inter-galactic space ship in classic science fiction? I can imagine someone in the year 2113 reading this book and not be disappointed with the subtle technology Posey weaves into the story. He's a futurist.

    Don't be discouraged by reviews which highlight the lack of background story. Author's gestalt approach allowed me to conceptualise my own version of the world rendering the book highly interactive, engaging and personal.

    While this is not the very best book I've purchased on Audible, it's certainly the one that kept my attention right through to the end. So many times I literally couldn't go to sleep until I found out what happened next.

    "Better than expected! Three's a bad ass!"
    What made the experience of listening to Three the most enjoyable?

    What made the experience most enjoyable, well, I guess it would have to the story arc. I like the whole post-apocalyptic/sy-fy genre and this one was pretty damn good with well built characters that kept me engaged in the book. I'm fairly new to audio books(or printed books for that matter) but I've learned to judge character development on whether or not I care what happens to the people in the novel. If you don't care about the characters you'll probably find yourself hitting the rewind button a lot. That's what happens to me anyway. I didn't hit the rewind button too many times while listening to this book which means I was paying attention to the story. That's hard for me to do with my short attention span.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Three?

    I'm sorry guys, I cannot answer that without giving away a huge spoiler so I'll just say my most memorable moment was towards the end. Honestly, I try not to read this section of the reviews because it gives away part of the story.


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

    I guess he brings emotion and passion to the story that I wouldn't get if I just read it. I enjoy books more when they're read to me


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

    Yes, towards the end. Again, I won't answer this question because I believe it's a spoiler.


    Any additional comments?

    Ya, it's an original take on a genre that a lot of writer's have, well, failed to pull off but Jay Posey had the foresight to try something a little different. good job Jay! For $9.97 it's a good deal! Check it out.

    "Post-Apocalypse Adventure"



    You won't find a deep Tolstoy-esque story here.

    The characters are straight-forward, set in a PA wasteland, with a few minor tweaks to set it apart from other books of this genre. There are some cyborg elements and characters with supernatural abilities that set it apart from other PA stories, but otherwise it is fairly standard-fare.

    Zombies meet Mad Max


    What did you like best about this story?

    How there is a whole back story to the main character that leaves you guessing as to what happened in his past


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

    He brings the characters to life


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

    There wasn't anyone moment, it was all good.

    "Amazing!"

    In a post apocalyptic and ravaged world lives Three, a mysterious bounty hunter who finds himself the unintentional guardian to a mother, Cass, and her young son, Wren. It's a dark and dangerous place peopled by Weirs, zombie like creatures who are out to kill any humans who are out after dark. The humans who have survived whatever happened to the world and have enhanced abilities must still lock themselves away during the hours of darkness to stay safe.
    The story is fascinating with compelling characters, the baddies are totally bad and very scary, the action scenes are vivid. Some teary moments involving Wren and Cass. The ending is totally unexpected..and sad. Luke Daniels' narration is amazing and it's impossible not to be moved to sadness, feel the tension and suspense.

    "Entertaining"

    Three is an enjoyable and easy listen. The main story is not complicated and the world it is set in is never really explained e.g. who or what are the Weir, why is it a post-apocalyptic society and who is Three but I found myself caring about the characters which the narrator brings alive very well. The book does have the feel of a video game about it (not surprising considering the authors former career) but don’t let that put you off.

    Over all an enjoyable book and well narrated.
