Publisher's Summary

One night. That was all it took.
Creatures that once lived in the shadows, hidden from humankind, have risen, spreading like a plague across the globe over the course of a single night. Their numbers growing exponentially through infection, these seemingly unkillable creatures have swallowed up whole cities and collapsed unprepared governments.
Survivors call it The Purge.
Against all odds, a disparate group of survivors has emerged from that blood-soaked night that devastated the planet and reduced humanity to an endangered species. Among the survivors are two ex-Army Rangers, a businesswoman, and a third-year medical student. But surviving The Purge was one thing - staying alive is another matter entirely.
Hope exists in the countryside, in the form of a self-sustaining underground facility designed to withstand any calamity. But in order to reach its safety, the survivors must travel hundreds of treacherous miles, with the night - and the creatures that dwell within it - always at their backs.
The rules are simple: Stay out of the dark, load up on silver bullets, and whatever you do, stay alive.
The road to salvation has begun…

Dead, Not Stupid

What disappointed you about The Purge of Babylon: A Novel of Survival?

First, let's address the narrator. He read a book. It's as simple as that. He just opened the book and read it. A good narrator tells a story. You get lost in the story, the fluctuation of voices, the rise and drop of excitement, sorrow, etc. This guy....he just read a book. Listen to the sample and you'll know what I mean. Now try listening to that for over 14 hours. It was a true struggle.
Second, the book was such a disappointment. It started out with promise, but got too repetitive and cliche quickly. The men were male chauvinists and the women were just written into the book for the men to have someone to have sex with and make inappropriate comments about in private (and often right to their faces, which they just laughed off.) There was no character development and a lot of scenes never ended before a new one began.
Third.....there were a few phrases, like "dead, not stupid" that were repeated an annoying amount of times. No exaggeration, this particular phrase was probably mentioned 100 times. Combine that with the annoying narration, doesn't make for an enjoyable book.
I will not continue this series. I would like to have quit this book, but since I paid for it, I felt I had to finish......ya know, to get my money's worth.


What do you think your next listen will be?

I've already started listening to The 5th Wave.


Would you be willing to try another one of Adam Danoff’s performances?

Dude slow down.

If you could sum up The Purge of Babylon: A Novel of Survival in three words, what would they be?

Needs a new narrator but the story itself was pretty good. It had action, comedy, little dash of romance in it. The narrator though was horrible. This guy needs to take some acting classes and learn to lay off the caffine. He wouldn't change his voice at all for any of the characters and he talked about as fast as an auctioneer that double fisted a espresso. It was highly annoying so I'm returning it.
