Not a five star series, but entertaining. I see some reviewers don't like that some things are not all that realistic. To them I say, this is Fiction. What I tell my wife when it comes to science fiction, just believe it is possible and enjoy the ride. One reader was disappointed that the good guys might win in this series. It's not reality he said. What's up with that? Why can't you have a feel good book? The game of thrones crap only goes so far before you just can't digest the depression anymore. Books and movies are an escape. Feeling good at the end is a good thing. If you want to read about bad guys, then read non fiction. Humans have plenty of bad guys that come out ahead. My only gripe of this book is that the author uses a poor ploy to get you to buy the next book. He likes to end his story from book 2 and on, right in the middle of a cliff hanger. That actually makes me a little miffed, like maybe I should not buy the next one just to show him what's up. But I buy them anyway. Also, Daniel Ash, the supposed hero, is really dumb. He always asks the stupid questions at the wrong time. You can just count on it. I wish there was a better hero to cheer for but what the heck. The stories move along nicely and they are well read. Great for the over the road trucker.

It feels like the author farmed this out to some writing company that got paid by the word but didn't understand there was supposed to be suspense. There are way too many characters (5 or 6 different groups - so about 15 characters, very few of which were distinguishable from the others: both their names and perspectives were so similar)
Each set of characters were located in dif places which I guess was intended to give a wider view of the goings-on, but... it was just boring. Group A did XYZ, Group B did XYZ as well, Group C got killed, and so on.
There was no tension or suspense... just a lot (a LOT) of talking and jumping between different groups doing the exact same things just in different locations. We don't get to know any of the characters, and don't care about any of them, and other than Ash and Olivia from the first book (whose names stand out) and the pop-in Indian character (no idea where he came from, ended up, or why), we can't really tell any of the characters apart: Matt, Mark... which is which? Who's wife was sick? Why did all these random people get blown up?
I am glad I didn't buy any more in this series. This book is way too boring to waste time on, and went so far downhill from book 1 that I can't imagine what book 3 would be like. The narration is fine, just the material is suspense-free. There is no sex or gore or swearing.

After listening to Sick and being captivated by the Project Eden series I couldn't wait to listen to Exit 9, part 2 of the series. And the second book totally lived up to expectation, a roller coaster that captivated me and kept me wanting more. Brett Battles has really pulled off an excellent gripping series and the Project Eden series is highly recommended.
The narration by Macleod Andrews is as always excellent - great differentiation between characters with his tone of voice and style.
