After a long day of prepping a house for painting, all Gus Berry wanted was the night off to spend some time with his girlfriend and relax before having to return to work the next morning. But that isn’t going to happen. Because Gus’s co-worker Benny has found a one-night job at the local Mollymart East, a job that has to be done by morning. If Gus and his paint crew can complete the work by then, it could mean huge business with a respected, established grocery store chain.

Most amazing backstory and pure gold character development. A young girl forced to not only survive the insurmountable physical aspects of a plague disaster she also has to overcome, accept or become hardened by every emotional experience. Bravo Tom Abrahams

All he wants is peace. All he finds is war. Marcus Battle is a wanted man. No matter where he goes or what he does, he can't escape those who aim to kill him. But as he fights off one would-be vigilante after another, a new threat emerges. It's a threat worse than the viral Scourge which plunged his world into a dystopian nightmare and it could give rise to second apocalypse. Can Marcus fend off the coming attacks or will he finally fall prey to an enemy he won't see coming?

Absolutely outstanding writing. Abrahams has taken this skill to a whole new level. His colorful in-depth character evolution along with realistic internal struggles completely drew me in. Mad Max meets Wyatt Earp. At times I was so " in " the story I couldn't put its down. In my opinion Abrahams is up there with the likes of Louis Lamour.

At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

One of the best books I've encountered in a while.
Trust me , I'm a long haul trucker and i go through audio books like most people do TV shows .
Tom Abrahams has brought the Traveler series back with a bang.
This modern day western dystopian is absolutely OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!
Marcus Battle is today's John Wayne.
Kevin Pierce makes the story flow with his vocal style and grace bringing each character to life.
