It’s the characters that make this part of the story so good. I’ve always like the beginning of post-apocalyptic books. How everyday people, situat..Show More »ions and problems slowly get pushed out of the picture as some strange phenomena grows in import and gravity. Part one of this series is mostly about the characters and their back stories. But it is not dry or low octane. After 30 minutes into the listen I downloaded the other two episodes. So the only negative for me is that I’ve listened to all three episodes and I now have to wait for the next installment. I can’t wait to hear what happens next. Superb narration. Highly recommended.
