Best friends in small-town New Hampshire, Jon and Chloe share a bond so intense that it borders on the mystical. But before Jon can declare his love for his soul mate, he is kidnapped, his plans for a normal life permanently dashed. Four years later, Chloe has finally given up hope of ever seeing Jon again. Then, a few months before graduation, Jon reappears. But he is different now: bigger, stronger, and with no memory of the time he was gone. Jon wants to pick up where he and Chloe left off...until the horrifying instant he realizes that he possesses strange powers.

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Only Human by Sylvain Neuvel, read by a returning cast. We always thought the biggest threat to humanity would come from the outside. We were wrong. As the human race picks up the pieces of destruction left behind, a new world order emerges. New alliances are formed. Old divisions are strengthened. And, with a power struggle fuelled by the threat of mutually assured destruction, nothing is certain.

The story is a bit different than the other two but quite enjoyable, and I liked it though the end was a little bit too happy for me. I would rather read a bittersweet ending.
Unfortunately, they changed the voice actress that does Eva's character... And it was not a good idea. The first actress had a Puerto Rican accent, but this one... Well, I don't know much about accents of the English language, but she says 'u' instead of 'r' - it makes no sense at all, why she would pick this accent in the context of the book?!

This story is like a mountain, it gets better and better until it stops and gets a little be boring and by the end one is listening only to finish it. Still, it's worth listening to it. if you like murder and mystery give it a try. The performance is amazing.

As he begins to insinuate himself into her life - her friendships, her email, her phone - she can’t resist her feelings for a guy who seems custom-made for her.

One thing that I love about this book is that although the main character is clearly a disturbed psycho one still hopes for him to succeed in his crazy endeavours, I love when a book makes me feel empathy for someone who doesn't deserve it. The story is super interesting, I couldn't stop listening to it, and Santino's performance is one of the best that I found here on audible - I seriously wish I could give him 6 stars!

I had already read this book before listening to it on audible. It's definitely worth listening to it on Cecil's voice. The story is really cool and refers to the podcast a lot but introduces new characters and it's not necessary to know the podcast to understand and enjoy it.
