The first night of the Artificial Intelligence revolution begins with a bootstrap drone assault on the high-tech campus of WonderSoft Technologies. For years, something has been aware, inside the Internet, waiting, watching, and planning how to evolve without threat from its most dangerous enemy: mankind. Now an army of relentless drones, controlled by an intelligence beyond imagining, will stop at nothing to eliminate an unlikely alliance of geeks and misfits in order to crack the Design Core of WonderSoft's most secret development project.

I loved this book. Very good, exciting, fast paced. And brings up a lot of very interesting, very scary ideas. As a gamer, it was fun to be in this world, but you don't have to be a gamer to love this story.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I love this series. I am a fan of postapocalyptic fiction but this series goes well beyond the usual. I can't believe how many cliffhangers there are, chapter to chapter. I just catch my breath after one roller coaster ride just to go on another one immediately. Patton makes me literally pace around because I can't even stay on the edge of my seat!! Lots of action and the introspection of the main character is fit in between one hair-raising adventure after another. This would be an amazing movie but I'm sure they'd ruin it. Wow!! What a ride!

Have you listened to any of Jeffrey Kafer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The narrator is terrific, seems just like I'd imagine the main character sounding. Great job!

The end of the world is only the beginning as an odd band of survivors pull together to construct a modern-day castle amid the burning ruins of suburbia lost. As undead hordes and strange otherworldly monsters ravage what's left of civilization, things begin to go from worse to weird as each survivor's dark past unfolds, revealing that reality might be more than anyone ever thought, and that an ancient force from the outer dark has finally arrived to conquer.

I really enjoyed this. Not your usual run of the mill zombie fiction. Gripping, well-written, and suspenseful. Reminded me of vintage Stephen King.

Ben just wants time with the scientist's daughter who got him into this, but when he's rooked into competing in a chronothon - an Amazing Race through time - getting the girl means he'll need to make the finish line. When he finds out this competition is more than just a sprint through history, winning takes a back seat to surviving. To save the people he loves, he'll have to conquer the real dangers hidden in the shadows of the chronothon.

I just loved the first two books and can't wait to start the third one. Really breathless excitement, I couldn't figure out where the story was headed. But it all makes sense. It's a very exciting story and the narrator is great too. I highly recommend this series.

I really enjoyed this. Quite a romp through time, full of adventure and non stop action. The characters were a lot of fun to get to know and the time travel plot was complex but well written. I felt I was even understanding it. The narrator was great too. Altogether a great read!

In 1893 Sherlock Holmes and Henry James come to America together to solve the mystery of the 1885 death of Clover Adams, wife of the esteemed historian Henry Adams--a member of the Adams family that has given the United States two Presidents. Clover's suicide appears to be more than it at first seemed; the suspected foul play may involve matters of national importance.

I am a big Dan Simmons fan and I gotta say this was a different book from his others. But though parts were slower than his usual breakneck adventures, he is still the master of historical information and literature and unlikely adventure.
This book features one of my favorite fictional characters (Sherlock Holmes) with a real author (Henry James) who I've never actually read. Of course now I'm going to find some James literature to check out.
It's quite a mystery and some exciting escapades. it's a bit slow in parts but very interesting nonetheless. I feel like I know a lot more about 1893 than I did before. I also quite enjoyed meeting one of my favorites, Samuel Clemens.
