When Ben, a suburban family man, takes a business trip to rural Pennsylvania, he decides to spend the afternoon before his dinner meeting on a short hike. Once he sets out into the woods behind his hotel, he quickly comes to realize that the path he has chosen cannot be given up easily. With no choice but to move forward, Ben finds himself falling deeper and deeper into a world of man-eating giants, bizarre demons, and colossal insects.

If you could sum up The Hike in three words, what would they be?

Alice's rabbit hole.

What did you like best about this story?

Nothing in the story follows as it should. Liked best ?? not knowing what was coming in the next sentence, much less the next page.

What does Christopher Lane bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Not much, not any need for many voices.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The end --- how was it all to get back in line with real life.

Any additional comments?

I stopped this book after 10 min -twice and was going to return it. It had no plot, no flow, no character development but the third time I lasted to the 20 min mark and after that I could not put it down.

Five years after a pneumonic plague killed two-thirds of the world's population, army veteran Marcus Battle is isolated. He's alone with his guns, his food, and the graves of his wife and child. Unaware of the chaos that's befallen everything outside of his central Texas ranch land, Marcus lives a Spartan life. If anyone steps onto his property, he shoots first and never asks questions. But when a woman in distress, chased by marauders, seeks asylum, Marcus has a decision to make.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you like "end of world", "end of normal life" and no zombies story, this is one for you. Good read, good narrator.

What did you like best about this story?

Story could be true ... very little 'make believe'.

What about Kevin Pierce’s performance did you like?

Like sitting in front of fire and someone reading to you. He narrates like the story is the thing that is most important, not him liking the sound of his voice.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Prepper, Prepper.

FBI Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith, last seen in Backfire, has been recruited by Dillon Savich to join his unit in Washington, D.C. Savich sees something special in Hammersmith, an almost preternatural instinct for tracking criminals. While on his way to D.C., Hammersmith plans to visit his sister, Delsey, a student at Stanislaus School of Music in Maestro, Virginia. Before he arrives, he gets a phone call that Delsey has been found naked and unconscious, lying in a pool of blood, after a wild party. The blood isn’t hers - so to whom does it belong? Griffin must protect Delsey, but from whom?

What did you like best about Bombshell? What did you like least?

Best - Story, but hard to follow because I kept dropping off because of the poor Narration.

Worst - The worst Narration I have every Heard. If I wanted to listen to a mono-tone I would have returned to High School History Class.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Renee Raudman and Paul Costanzo ?

Nearly anyone else. Some one with felling and excitement in their voices.

Did Bombshell inspire you to do anything?

Restart each chapter. Needed to because ..... well see above.
