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.

Refreshing! This is a new story! Nothing rehashed.

Overall Enoyable Listen
No, but I very rarely repeat books, so that doesn't say much
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.
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.
Overall enjoyable, not too heavy or much thought required. Good for a beach listen, or for a young (fifteen and up) audience.
