In New York, Walt Lawson is about to lose his girlfriend Vanessa. In Los Angeles, Raymond and Mia James are about to lose their house. Within days, none of it will matter. When Vanessa dies of the flu, Walt is devastated. But she isn't the last. The virus quickly kills billions, reducing New York to an open grave and LA to a chaotic wilderness of violence and fires. As Raymond and Mia hole up in an abandoned mansion, where they learn to function without electricity, running water, or neighbors, Walt begins an existential walk to LA, where Vanessa had planned to move when she left him. He expects to die along the way. Months later, a massive vessel appears above Santa Monica Bay. Walt is attacked by a crablike monstrosity in a mountain stream. The virus that ended humanity wasn't created by humans. It was inflicted from outside. The colonists who sent it are ready to finish the job - and Earth's survivors may be too few and too weak to resist.

Left me wanting more.....
- Janie "I am an artist, living in Cairns, Queensland, Australia right next to the Great Barrier Reef. I listen to audiobooks everyday while making art and on into the night. I really like mysteries with a good serving of suspense on the side that keep you wondering right to the end. However, I won't say no to any entertaining and well written book which has been read by an excellent narrator."
This Book was Made for Ray Chase
I say Breakers ranks in the top 84-92% with a lean towards the higher %.
This book does not need comparison. Breakers stands alone as a solid work of fiction. When everything is said and done, who cares what I might compare Breakers to? Come on Audible.....what kind of question is this?
When Raymond and Mia are discussing whether they should hit the road to less traveled, higher climes and Raymond brings up the fact that they would be leaving their garden. Mia throws out a perfectly timed sarcastic remark that made me laugh and rewind 3-4 times to hear it again.
Raymond was a very lucky guy to have Mia in his life. She is the kind of woman I'd like to have in my life, with or without the Squids trying to throw mankind in the garbage heap.
Walter wants revenge. Get ready for a heaping helping of dismembered Squid Alien bastards!
Ray Chase narrated this book perfectly. I think the word I am looking for to describe his narration is sardonic. When Ray Chase is matched with the right book like Breakers, he is absolutely a joy to listen to. I laughed, I almost felt like crying a time or two. I hope he continues with this series. Also, I hope there is a surprise awaiting one of the main characters, the story line would be the richer and I could continue my audio crush.
