Publisher's Summary

Amanda is bored with life. She spends hours a day on Facebook, her parents act like they are too ancient to enjoy life any longer, and her military husband, Ralph, is deployed to Afghanistan. Gideon is not totally content at home either. His wife, Nina, is a lifetime overachiever and a workaholic. She has moved her mother into their home so she can have a live-in sitter, and Gideon has fallen to the bottom of her priority list. On Black Friday 2012, both Amanda and Gideon end up at a Best Buy to take advantage of the massive price cuts on electronics. When the store opens its door at midnight, the potential customers rush the glass doors and end up in a brawl. Built-up excitement turns into mass pandemonium as the police show up in riot gear. Tear gas containers are being tossed around like lollipops and strangers are beating on each other like a heavyweight fight at the MGM Grand in Vegas.

Amanda and Gideon both end up in the skywalk overlooking the madness and, even though they are complete strangers to each other, the adrenaline rush overwhelms them and they discover quick ecstasy among the chaos. After putting their clothes back on, followed by making formal introductions, they embark on a sexual journey together that re-ignites the flames in their souls. Both are forced to make choices that they never thought would have to be made; marriages are placed at risk; heartbreak is inevitable. What starts out merely as casual sex becomes much more than mere physical attraction and their lives begin to unravel. No matter how incredible something wrong can make one feel, eventually, Everything Fades Away.

Truly Zane

What made the experience of listening to Zane's Everything Fades Away the most enjoyable?

The narrators.

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

Yes, the end because it was so unexpected.

Any additional comments?

Zane is a phenomenal writer who leaves you on the edge of your seat and wanting more. She in this story put tears in my eyes because it was not what I was expecting at all. It is truly an hour I am glad that I took out of my day to read this short but powerful piece of literary work. Thank you Zane. You are phenomenal.

Sorry I bought

Narrators were dry and took away from story which was only soso to begin with. Everytime it got to a love/sex scene I cringed because the narrators voices and lifeless delivery made the scene akward and painful; kinda like talking to your straight edge traditional parents about sex for example...Yah no good!

Another Great One!

I love Zane's work! I am always so engrossed with her plot lines. Can't say I expected this bittersweet ending but it was lovely all the same. And the performers were fantastic as well. I recommend this story and anything read by Ms. Hanover, and will definitely look for other things with Mr. Boatman.
