If you're a fan of apocalyptic horror in the vein of 28 Days Later, this book will not disappoint. Keene is great at creating fully fleshed out characters that you easily become invested in, which is all the more devastating when they come to a gory end. Chet Williamson, a fine horror scribe in his own right, is stupendous in his narration. Changing cadence and tone to portray characters as varied as a single mom & her son, an older Italian widow & her cat, a black Vietnam vet, a transgender woman and even a serial killer convinced his crimes are protecting the Earth from inter dimensional horrors. A must for Keene fans and a great introduction to those unfamiliar with his works.

This book moves fast! It does a great job with pacing if you're someone who likes action packed pages. it rarely slows down. The narrator isn't my favorite but does a decent job.
What did you like most about The Complex?
A fast paced, exciting and scary story it was filled with emphatic characters. Plenty of action, plenty of horror.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Complex?
I can't tell because it strays into spoiler territory. I liked the horror aspects.
Have you listened to any of Chet Williamson’s other performances? How does this one compare?
This was the first time. He suited the material very well. It was an enjoyable, competent narration.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I listened to it in two days at work. It's short but good.
Any additional comments?
My first Brian Keene experience. He's got game. The book was hardcore, felt like a purge film.
Great plot twists and characters that you warm to. The atmosphere is kept high throughout and it is a very exciting read....just a shame it's not longer.
