Listening to the complete Darkness Collection was both interesting and entertaining. The story of Elliot, Adam, and Triton encompasses the gambit of emotional twists and turns and is somewhat exhausting...which is what would occur at the time of the apocalypse (I would assume). This is a tale with coming to terms, mystery, intrigue, lunacy, and things that make you go hmm. Enjoyed the story, the narrator took a bit getting use to but once that happened, the story flowed nicely. Certainly recommend for anyone who wants a taste of what might be...

I thought this might be interesting: I had enjoyed a few apocalyptic / end of the world type books, and I had never listened to any book where there was a same sex romance, relationship with the main characters; so I thought I'd give this a listen.
however, I'm quitting after listening to about a third of this. I almost never stop without finishing a book, but I just can't go any further.
Take this gem exchange between the two guys:
"We've got to prepare for tomorrow."
"Tomorrow isn't coming."
"Then we've got to live for today."
"You're right. I can't believe I letting this asteroid get to me like this."
It listens like a bad soap opera, and the narrator reads the sex episodes like they were lifted right from a cheesy porn flick. In fairness to the narrator, he can only read the words that were written; but he interprets the sex scenes in a way that cause me to giggle and cringe simultaneously.
I hate to mock anyone's work. I'd like to think that all authors put a lot of work into what they do, and that they are proud of it. As a consumer, I want to know what not to waste my time and money on, so I offer this review.
One great thing about Audible, is that I can get my credit back and try something else.
