Publisher's Summary

He was tired of fighting nature, fighting its cruel inhabitants. All he had to do now was survive. It all comes down to survival, doesn’t it?

When 17-year-old Runner was sentenced to death for stealing a loaf of bread in MegaCity One, his dreams were literally at an end. But then he opts to sign up for the Remnants of Men, a government sanctioned search for a rumored freshwater lake beyond a radiated wasteland.

At first, it seemed like a second chance to a new life, the transformation from zero to hero. But when he almost gets killed by a rabid gang of men desperate for the single energy bar he wanted to eat, he soon comes to understand that he is one of many discarded into the wasteland to study the cannibalistic effects of a new drug called the Sixth Sense.

Olivia Patterson has had one too many doses of the Sixth Sense and owes a massive debt to a shadowy rebel and loan shark called Death-Throe. Being the daughter of the City's dictator, she knows too well that the gallows awaits any who associates with the rebel. In an attempt to free herself, she acquires an asset in the form of Runner and finds herself always at the edge, for if he survives it means freedom for both, but if he dies....

Great Start

Liberation starts off and you think it is another dystopian book that will entertain, but Okafor takes a different step. Peter Okafor dives into how humanity directly deals with the fact that in the event of catastrophe the worst in us comes out and can be a larger threat to survival then anything else

Love the character development, the flow and pace of the book and how it sets us up for further books without leaving us feeling left without closure.

the narrator helped carry the story by doing multiple characters without sounding forced at all and that was a major part of making this book a winner.

Great Narration

Liberation is set in a dystopian world, in the aftermath of a nuclear attack where society has collapsed, and the corrupt are in power. The main character Runner, a seventeen-years young man who is struggling to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. Overall, the premise for the storyline is interesting; however, it's weakly executed.

I think Jennifer Blom did a great job with the narration and portraying the characters. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.
