Have you listened to any of Macleod Andrews’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Any additional comments?
Once again Brett Battles takes us on an exciting journey across a devastated world. I cant wait for the next part in this series.
A word of caution….If you are just starting to read any Brett Battles book you must start with the first book of the series and continue through as each book leaves you on a knife edge and wanting to continue the story. If you dont do this you may be disappointed at the ending of a book and be left feeling unsatisfied. That is Brestt's trade mark…He leaves you wanting more of the story.

I'm not saying this is great literature, or that some of the writing isn't a tad sophomoric, but boy, oh boy, does it catch you and keep you on the edge of your seat! This is so much fun, so real and conspiracy-theory possible that you have to keep listening. Macleod Andrews is a fantastic narrator, as we all know, so his voices, accents, pacing, and expression just add to the excitement.
World population is down below one billion, and still falling due to the sinister designs of The Eden Project, out to reboot the human race as they see fit. The flu virus is mostly gone now, but they still have more to spray on you or inject if you don't meet their saving guidelines. And if the flu doesn't kill you, they have guns that will.
We now are very attached to the various groups of survivors: of course, the Ashes with Chloe and Matt et al, but also Sanjay and his group in India, Martina and her friends in California, Belinda alone with her journal in her college dorm, and Robert and all the resort folks on Isabella Island off of Costa Rica, as well as the reporter and her camera techie guy trying to get the true news out there. Our friends are threatened, tricked, and even knowingly throwing themselves into danger. We are biting our nails, saying, "no, no, no, get out of there..." But even as The Project seems to be winning, our people are making inroads to the survivors and against the bad guys. There are some important events here, and some great heroics and pathos.
If this book interests you, be sure to read from book one of the series so you can get the whole story and come to know and love the people. You will want them on your side when the trials come!
