Publisher's Summary

Six months ago, the world watched in horror as we lost an American city.
The Grinder. That's what the survivors of Tucson called the monster. Just one touch, and they became a part of it. It used their bodies as limbs and as weapons. In just a matter of hours, it became huge, a towering monstrosity made entirely out of tens of thousands of people and animals.
This isn't behind-the-scenes bullshit from the point of view of the military. This isn't yet another conspiracy theory about what really happened to Air Force One that night, or about the decision to nuke Tucson.
This is a rare, eyewitness account from someone who was there, in the midst of the destruction. But most importantly, this is the terrifying truth.

Overall Enoyable Listen

Would you listen to The Grinding again? Why?

No, but I very rarely repeat books, so that doesn't say much

What other book might you compare The Grinding to and why?

It's definitely strongly sci-fi, a little graphic and it has some supernatural elements, with a (slightly unbelievable, but nevertheless fun) twist. So I would compare this story to Chuck Palahniuck, or Richard Matheson stories, but aimed at a younger, less sophisticated audience than Matheson.

Have you listened to any of Chris Sorensen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have never listened to this narrator before. I found that his characters' voices were very slightly different from his own. So slight that, were the book to have more dialogue and less written explanations of who was talking, I may have had trouble following. That being said, I don't believe I had trouble discerning them on too many occasions.

Any additional comments?

Overall enjoyable, not too heavy or much thought required. Good for a beach listen, or for a young (fifteen and up) audience.
