I have to say that this book had me all worked up (in a good way). The characters were amazing, as the narrator portrayed each one down to a science. The ending threw me off a little but the truth that came out of it was a jaw dropper for sure!

Rachel Jenner is walking in a Bristol park with her eight-year-old son, Ben, when he asks if he can run ahead. It's an ordinary request on an ordinary Sunday afternoon, and Rachel has no reason to worry - until Ben vanishes. Police are called, search parties go out, and Rachel, already insecure after her recent divorce, feels herself coming undone. As hours and then days pass without a sign of Ben, everyone who knew him is called into question, from Rachel's newly married ex-husband to her mother-of-the-year sister.

Two words: the bullet. That's all it takes to shatter her life. Caroline Cashion is beautiful, intelligent, a professor of French literature. But in a split second, everything she's known is proved to be a lie. A single bullet, gracefully tapered at one end, is found lodged at the base of her skull. Caroline is stunned. It makes no sense: She has never been shot. She has no entry wound, no scar. Then, over the course of one awful evening, she learns the truth.

Unexplained events are happening at Oxford these days. Several students have been attacked at night by some strange form of wild animal. It can scale walls with cat-like agility. Its arms are as thin and as strong as steel bands. And there is one student who conducts midnight studies in his room with certain Egyptian artifacts. The most significant of which is a 6'7" tall mummy.

Cassie Forrest isn't surprised to learn that the day she’s decided to get her life together is also the day the world ends. After all, she’s been on a self-imposed losing streak since her survivalist parents died: she’s stopped painting, broken off her engagement to Adrian and dated a real jerk. Rectifying her mistakes has to wait, however, because Cassie and her friends have just enough time to escape Brooklyn for her parents’ cabin before Bornavirus LX turns them into zombies, too.

At first I was a little skeptical of the whole zombie -end of-the-world story as I'be seen and heard so many versions but I have to admit, this one drew me in to lives of each character and what they encountered on their journey to safety. I really enjoyed how the narrator protrays those characters in such a way that you feel all sorts of emotions at different points in time. bravo!

War Is Peace! Freedom Is Slavery! Ignorance Is Strength! Big Brother is watching and listening. Yep, we’re talking propaganda, the fabrication of “truth”, the outlawing of dissent, the distortion of reality, endless war… and of course, thought crime. No we’re not talking about the goings on on 2011, were talking about the 1949 NBC University Theater’s adaptation of George Orwell’s 1984.

In this episode, after learning that some Texas schoolbooks refer to African slaves as "migrant workers," Neal takes Elijah on a road trip to Louisiana, where they visit a slavery museum on a former plantation.

I can honestly say as an African American born and raised in Louisiana, that this was encouraging to hear someone other my own, have a genuine thirst for knowledge and the truthful accounts of American history. I hope that people of all races take the time to research other historical facts about America in order to better understand why people are still racially divided. maybe this lesson can allow the future generation to become unified. some our past generations have been trying to erase for decades.

[Contains explicit content] If children's literature is any guide, we should all be able to magically fall asleep simply by saying goodnight to the things we can see from our beds. But any adult knows that our work anxieties and shameful memories would rather stay up all night and chat. Which is why the only viable bedtime routine for weary adults involves a healthy dose of medication. To hear the series in full, log in to the Audible app and click on the “Channels” icon.
