Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon awakens in a hospital in the middle of the night. Disoriented and suffering from a head wound, he recalls nothing of the last 36 hours, including how he got there...or the origin of the macabre object that his doctors discover hidden in his belongings. Langdon's world soon erupts into chaos, and he finds himself on the run in Florence with a stoic young woman, Sienna Brooks, whose clever maneuvering saves his life.

After a long day of prepping a house for painting, all Gus Berry wanted was the night off to spend some time with his girlfriend and relax before having to return to work the next morning. But that isn’t going to happen. Because Gus’s co-worker Benny has found a one-night job at the local Mollymart East, a job that has to be done by morning. If Gus and his paint crew can complete the work by then, it could mean huge business with a respected, established grocery store chain.

The beginning was a bit hard to get through. The charter dialogue was pretty irritating to listen too in the first few chapters. It was all written well. I just want a fan of the dialogue content at first. Overall, the book has great imagery, and kept me entertained throughout the story. im looking forward to the next book.

Just like the books before this one, this book is great! Kept me entertained the entire time. Just wish the enemy was a different entity. Having dhs as the "bad guy" is a little over the top survivalist for me. But that's just my opinion.

When society ceases to exist, who can you trust? After the collapse of the nation's power grid, America is under martial law - and safety is an illusion. As violence erupts around him, Morgan Carter faces one of his most difficult decisions yet: whether to stay and defend his home, or move to a more isolated area, away from the prying eyes of the government. He and his family are hesitant to leave their beloved Lake County, but with increasingly suspicious activities happening in a nearby refugee camp, all signs point towards defecting.

This book is best realistic, fiction survival book I've heard. With the exception of an overweight person packing around a 60lbs pack for weeks and the main character being so calloused to death and destruction from only having a background working at home on computers, this book seems to be a great depiction of what it might be for many who would encounter a crisis situation and have to endure a walk home.

The story itself was well written and very easy to be entertained by. The characters were also well portrayed and did not leave you irritated.
Although the narrator sounded like a computerized voice, he still wasn't bad. In fact, even with the monotone, the narrator was still much better than the last three or four books that I've listened to in other audio books.
