In the first book and first review I noted some of the voices by the reader were distracting. In fairness I am happy to write no such distractions in book two!! The story improved as characters settled in. I really enjoyed it.

What did you love best about Trackers?

Modern look at modern threats. Society has become so dependent on electronics that the thought of an EMP related incident makes your spine straighten.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

No and here's why...Would like to see more of the de-evoltion of society a little more prominent. Some characters were too cookie cutter predictable, such as the marine with the shotgun. The default President, also was predictably silly, launching missiles based on vengeance vs. what I would HOPE is more realistic, launching missiles as a well thought out strategic necessity. It's a tad cookie cutter that the replacement figurehead in this stories and similar stories are typically childish. Even in a fiction book I would like to believe we can credit most of our leadership as more intelligent than that.

Would you be willing to try another one of Bronson Pinchot’s performances?

Yes, I have listened to Bronson before and accepted this series in part because he was the reader but certain characters ended up sounding like a comic book character ... it became very distracting.

Any additional comments?

I particularly enjoyed that the writer began the tale with the back story, he gave us the WHY this started scenario. Several other books of this genre didn't manage to weave in the back story. Well done!
