Fourteen-year-old Greg Dixon is living a nightmare. Attending boarding school outside of Boston, he is separated from his family when a pandemic strikes. His classmates and teachers are dead, rotting in a dormitory-turned-morgue steps from his room. The nights are getting colder, and his food has run out. The last message from his father is to get away from the city and to meet at his grandparents' town in remote New Hampshire.

Where does The Last Tribe rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

At first i thought it was one of the best books I've listened to. Then i started to realize that the family's were very lucky in getting supplies. I really don't think it would be that easy. I wish they would of put in a handicapped member in. That would of changed things drastically.( i say that because im handicapped and i'd like to see what they would of done to make sure the member lived)

Who was your favorite character and why?

Rebeca

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

It was ok.

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

No. It was way too long. And i listen to more then one book at a time. Just like when i was able to read more i read two to three books at a time.

Any additional comments?

If you are buying this book because its under Christian Fiction well its not written buy a Christian author. If that does bother you . It was written by a Mormon and the LDS helped in someway. This really bothered me. I think from now on im going to research every author of the book im going to buy. Please know that I'm not prejudice i just thought i was getting something that i didn't get that is all.

What did you love best about The Bone House?

The story kept you so engrossed that i couldn't put down the book.

What did you like best about this story?

The characters were great. And the story got better and better.

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

He's as good in this as he was in all the others.

Any additional comments?

I'm sorry for those of you who read this review I know its not very good. But It was many years ago that i read the book and then i bought it on Audible and it was well worth the credit. I can say that Lawhead's books are great. I've read almost every single one. And i can't wait to get back into the series again. For some reason the first two books i've bought are not in my library. But im going to book three. I highly recommend any of Lawhead books.

Would you listen to Doomsday Book again? Why?

Yes i would listen to this book again and plan on it when i get all the books. I am buying book 3 today. I'm not a sci-fi person at all but this book or the whole series is great so far. i still have two books to go. But the charecters are great you really get to know them. And the narrator did an awsome job on the voices.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Not sure.

Which character – as performed by Jenny Sterlin – was your favorite?

Kathren.

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

I can't say without given it away. So i'll just say yes.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait to listen to book three. I recommend this book to whom ever is into time travel or fantasy.

Newcago is free. They told David it was impossible, that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet Steelheart - invincible, immortal, unconquerable - is dead. And he died by David's hand.Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life simpler. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And no one in Newcago can give him answers.Babylon Restored, the city formerly known as the borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though.

I've listend or read almost all of her books and she is a great author. The characters are great you can almost know what there going through and just feal like your there. But the foul language I can't stand. I got so sick of it I stopped listing to this book. And I knew when I bought it there was going to be some but I can only take so much. So if you don't like hearing or reading those words don't get this book, spend your credit on something elese.

Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.

Brandon Sanderson does a great job in capturingh the imagination and takes you away as if you where there. At times it seemed to go on and on and i wanted to just get to the point, but in the end i see why he does this. I've listend to a couple of his books and recommend any of them. Because if the two diffrent series i listend to are that good well i'de think they are all good.
