The story was ok, but not explosive. The story is about guy wakes from a coma hearing voices from the future. He then follows the voices. What follows is pure whiny stupidity.

Tornadoes, cyclones, tsunamis… Weather can be deadly – especially when it strikes without warning. Millions of Americans could soon find themselves at the mercy of violent weather if the public data behind lifesaving storm alerts gets privatized for personal gain. In his first Audible Original feature, New York Times best-selling author and journalist Michael Lewis delivers hard-hitting research on not-so-random weather data – and how Washington plans to release it.

I was not sure where this book was going, but it never got there. This started out in Joplin, Missouri after the big tornado. It went back and became a biography of two people that I am not sure ever met. I was unable to finish the book because it was too boring.

This was the second book in the Caldera series. It continues at breakneck speed the story started in the first book. Each character is continued from the first book with new ones joining the fray. The story has the army trying to stop the zombie infection. Which does not go as planned. I was given this book in exchange for a honest review.

I wascvery disappointed in this book. I am not really sure whast i was looking for when iI started the book. But I did not like what I found. The first part ofbthe book was just a loop of how great John Stockton was. It was a list of all his accomplishments repeated several times. Then it went on to a game by game list of his stats. There were several phases that were repeated time and again without an explanation to what they meant. As someone that does not follow vasketball, I was a little confused. I did not make it through the hole book, but I listened to around 75% of it, but could not handle any more.

This book was good, but it was predictable. SHTF, good people rally bad people try to take from them. This book focuses on a small town the comes together to survive a solar flare.

Imagine it snowing and not stopping, this is how the book starts. The main character does not know why it is snowing, but he is trying to survive. Enter the girl. When the girl enters eveyrthing changes, but not all for the better. The story goes on to tell of their adventures, and describes what the think happened to start the disaster.

Over all this was a good book. Some of the scenes makes little sense but the are short and far between. Overall this was a great advenure tale.

I found this book to be enjoyable but confusing. This was a good murder mystery with sci fi thrown in. It was the story of two future cops trying to find out who killed a couple of "sytncs". Sytncs are non organic humans. The story took some time to go into detail to explain how there was a war and sytncs came about. Then got into the story about the cops tracking down the killer. The book was good but not great and took me a while to listen to. But it was good enough for me to keep going back to.

This book started the Tyrant series. The premises behind the series is Fema and the United Nations take over the United States. The President allows this to happen. It follows several groups as they survive and stay out of the Fema camps. The book was good, but the narrator did not help maske it great.
