After spending more than 21 months on Amazon's Top-100 lists, Strangelets with a Side of Grilled Spam: Season One takes us further into the post-apocalyptic world of the original short story. This audiobook contains all four 'episodes' of the Strangelets series.
Pursued by packs of deadly 'steelies', Lieutenant MacWilliams and his Humvee crew have journeyed through an America shattered by an alien invasion. Things look grim...until MacWilliams comes across something that could turn the tide. It falls to him and his crew to get the word out across a land choked with post-apocalyptic wreckage and teeming with deadly alien monsters.
Their journey is blocked by steelie hunter-killers, vision-shrouding sand storms, and nightmare plains turned to radioactive slag by nuclear fallout. And at the end looms their final confrontation with a horde of aliens set to wipe out the human species!

This story is a favorite of mine. I originally read it about a year ago, revisiting it in audio was a special treat. Jon Goffena does an outstanding job with all the characters, he has a natural and warm reading voice for all the characters. Likewise audio quality was excellent.
The story is a cool take on a post-apocalypse setting, the invaders feel menacing and evil and above all alien. The principle characters are each someone I want to know more about, with strengths and weaknesses, and the supporting characters managed to be memorable despite small roles.
This is a great Sci-Fi adventure with great characters and a compelling story. I highly recommend it.

I really liked the idea of this story and wanted to like it, but I just couldn't stay with it. The narrator did a good job with the characters, but I didn't like the format of the story. You could tell that this was written as several small stories stuck together. The characters were very predictable and you pretty much knew what was going to happen.
I would pass on this one.
