    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    If you could sum up Three in three words, what would they be?

    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.

    "I like this book. Never boring."
    If you could sum up Three in three words, what would they be?

    Sad. Intriguing. Action.


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

    Yes, the end, nicely done.


    Any additional comments?

    This is obviously a post-apocalypse genre book. However the world is not entirely typical for the genre, besides the author manages to keep the world largely a mystery which I like, keeps you guessing and speculating. The story is largely a journey through a sort of urban wasteland where interesting dangers, friends and foes are met. I feel this is a major strength of the book, where some books set-up a typical good vs. evil scenario this book manages to feel like something that could have actually happened to real people. As such it is not a heroes journey even though the title suggest it.

    "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.

    "Post apocalyptic lone wolf takes woman & child"

    A "classic" story of tough lone-man who gives up his rough and tumble life to protect woman & child in trouble. It was a retelling of a western in a post apocalyptic world.

    I was entertained through to the end. I didn't rush to read the second book, but I might read it sometime later.

    All in all, I found it somewhat interesting, while it didn't impress me with its originality or plot.

    So I'd put this in the "time filler" escapism category.

    What made the experience of listening to Three the most enjoyable?

    Very good story line. Very captivating and captures my mind as the story unfolds.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of them really.


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

    I love Luke Daniels as a reader. He does excellent voice inflections and brings out the emotions of the characters. I found at times there were tears in my eyes when there was sorrow and joy in my heart where times were good in the story

    Story
    "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.
