Publisher's Summary

The sun is dying. The temperature around the world is rising by the hour with no sign of any respite. At this rate the planet will soon become uninhabitable; all life extinguished. It might be weeks away, it might be days...we may only have hours remaining. Society is crumbling. The burning world is descending into chaos.

Steven Johnson's wife is hundreds of miles away and all that matters is reaching her before the end. He has to act now, no time to stop and think. Every second is precious. Tomorrow is too late.

Chilling and possible!

I'm a huge David Moody fan, started with Autumn and just binged from there. While this book is not a zombie book, it's a different kind of terror. An actually plausible end of the world scenario. This story kept me on my feet, literally, taking this audio with me on walks, further than usual, just to get to the next chapter. The narration was top notch and I caught myself holding my breath during certain parts. Gives you lots to think about as well, how far would you go, what would you do to be with the one you love the most when the world was ending?

You will need to use fast forward this one

The performance was ok, but the story was so boring and depressing. I will not tell you the ending, but you will not like it.

A highly recommended listen

Listening to the ‘Straight to You’ audiobook during a covid pandemic has been an interesting experience. I went through this book during my afternoon “allotted exercise” walks; taking in the descriptions of a desolate landscape, humanity under threat by something out of their control was eerily close to points of 2020. What brought it more close to home was how the book starts, the first few hours of the audiobook concentrates on the relationship between the two protagonists with descriptions of the ever increasing heat peppered throughout, there is no sudden burst of sun that happens immediately like there would be in a Hollywood disaster movie but starts slow, in the background, some people taking it seriously and others acknowledging it and going about their daily business. Being months into covid all of this rings so very true in what happened, what was obviously a very serious thing was downplayed or ignored when people should have made plans and measures put in place much earlier. The relationship between the two characters, Sam and Steve, rings true, the dialogue between the two isn’t over the top nor overly dramatic and, with the rest of the writing is grounded much in reality.

WOW!

Mathew Jackson brings this fantastic tale alive with his emotive reading of Davids story. The story is written beautifully taking you through the ultimate disaster tale while simultaneously focusing on the normal lives of the 2 main characters as the world falls apart around them. I loved every minute of it.
