It’s the largest oil spill in history: a crashed supertanker in San Francisco Bay. Desperate to avert environmental damage—and a PR disaster—the multinational oil company releases an untested “designer microbe” to break up the spill.
It's an “oil-eating” microbe, designed to consume anything made of petrocarbons: oil, gasoline, synthetic fabrics, and of course plastic. What the company doesn’t realize is that their microbe propagates through the air. But when every car in the Bay Area turns up with an empty gas tank, they begin to suspect something is terribly wrong. And when, in just a few days, every piece of plastic in the world has dissolved, it’s too late....
The story had a strong start but then the story became long drawn out and dead boring. The later part of the book got somewhat interesting again but overall a bit of a let down.
The Narrator was quite good.

I heard about this story years ago, seemed like a good idea. The first part of the story is good but the writer simply ran out ideas ending up with a boring, poor attempt at a post apocalyptic world where you simply do not care about the story or characters. too bad....
A very good story. Great action and beautifully told. This is a "must" listen to ebook! Well done!
Started off well with a convincing tale of what could happen and then it began to meander all over the place without any real ending. It just petered out.
