Publisher's Summary

Anyone who dares challenge the Rho Project is being systematically picked off. At the top of the hit man’s death list: NSA fixer Jack Gregory, and the three teenagers who first exposed the Rho Project’s dark agenda to the world.

On the run for their lives, Heather, Mark, and Jennifer know that the Rho Project’s alien nano-technology has been released into the world, disguised as a miracle cure. But what they don’t yet know is that the serum has taken on a life of its own, modifying human DNA in a way that even its engineers cannot control - one that will alter the very fabric of humanity.

A great listen

Would you listen to Immune again? Why?

Yes. Listening dosen't always mean getting the whole story the first time.Some things take a second review to get all of the meaning.

No favorites all seemed to share a level stage for me.

Which character – as performed by MacLeod Andrews – was your favorite?

He was at his best performing Jack.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but found it imposible to do so.

Any additional comments?

MacLeod's narration really made this a very good listen.

Even Better Than Book One of the Trilogy

Where does Immune rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Immune ranks in my top ten audio books ever. The first two books of the Rho Agenda trilogy constitute twenty six hours of entertaining diversion from the problems of this world in which we live and operate.

What other book might you compare Immune to and why?

I can't really think of another book with the same flow as the first two Rho Agenda novels. The loss of innocense from the first book to the second fits with a coming of age story, but this one mixes in a healthy dose of spy thriller and even a touch of horror. Fascinating and fast moving. If you're expecting a previously defined genre, you're in for a jolt to your senses.

What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

MacLeod Andrews has a great knack for making relatively minor changes to his voice and inflection upon new character dialogue, such that you get the sense of character change without jolting you out of the story.

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

I loved the interplay between the superspy, Jack The Ripper Gregory, and the three high schoolers who are just trying to survive the escalating crisis.

Any additional comments?

I eagerly await the third act of this play.

Excellent storytelling - though a bit over the top

Picking up where "The Second Ship" left the listener, "Immune" throws you back into the world of the Rho Agenda - a world of suspense, muddling and scheming! Preying on our fears Richard Phillips weaves a web of intrigue that makes over the top nonsense seem real.

In my review of "The Second Ship" I indicated that that book reminder me very much of the comic "Danger Girls" without the girls. "Immune" reminds me of the "Punisher" set loose in the world of "Danger Girls."

It is quite enjoyable and could stand alone.

I've either gotten used to MacLeod Andrews voice or he has improved a lot. He kept me from opting out and enhanced the story by using different tones of voice.

I am amazed how believable Richard Phillips can make that which is unbelievable. If you are a conspiracy theorist or just like considering those possibilities, this book is for you!

The storyline took a dive...

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The first book was awesome, the second, not so. The plot took a turn that made no sense, and the parents were supposed to be engineers, yet they had no concept of intellectual property.

Would you ever listen to anything by Richard Phillips again?

Maybe

Which scene was your favorite?

Didn't have one

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Immune?

The Vegas arc.

so bad

This book was so bad I was ready to give up on it... until the floating legless messianic evil supra-genius piped in "rock and roll" which turned out to be Nickelback.

Boom!

Just went from a confusing mess of fiction where everyone seems to carry knockout gas to a train wreck I couldn't look away from.

It was a sore struggle to reach the end of the book… but like Jack, I used the powers of the angel of Death which lies (somehow) nestled inside me to endure the characters comprised solely of good or entirely of evil and a meandering narrative that reads more like a 12 year olds diary than a piece of fiction.

Don’t get me wrong, there’s probably a demographic for this book and if you’re between the ages of 11 and 16 you can safely ignore the review… for anyone else, think twice.

just as good as the first time

Just as good as the first time - NO better because this time I got to hear it. this audible version is really good. the inflection is very good and I love the voices. The story line picks up front The Rho Agenda and carries it through the next year. I really like this book.

Outstanding

Sat in my library for a rainy day for way too long. What an absolute surprise to finally listen and realize how awesome and how much I would enjoy The Rho Agenda series. To make it even better the narration was outstanding. This series keeps you in the parking lot at work, even if a little late getting to your desk, to sneak in a few more minutes of listening.

Good read. Where is it gonna go next?

The story is good and suspenseful. Some of the characters are pretty disturbing but that's the same as the first book. I can't wait to listen to the next book.
