Publisher's Summary

The fourth novel in Peter Clines' best-selling Ex series.
When he’s awake, George Bailey is just an ordinary man. Five days a week he coaxes his old Hyundai to life, curses the Los Angeles traffic, and clocks in at his job as a handyman at the local college. But when he sleeps, George dreams of something more. George dreams of flying. He dreams of fighting monsters. He dreams of a man made of pure lightning, an armored robot, a giant in an army uniform, a beautiful woman who moves like a ninja.
Then one day as he’s walking from one fix-it job to the next, a pale girl in a wheelchair tells George of another world, one in which civilization fell to a plague that animates the dead…and in which George is no longer a glorified janitor, but one of humanity’s last heroes. Her tale sounds like madness, of course. But as George’s dreams and his waking life begin bleeding together, he starts to wonder - which is the real world, and which is just fantasy?

Didn't Expect This!!

If you here you know how these books usually start, there is a Then and Now through the book and you get to know one of the heroes' past. But here its different.

When you start this book you will be a bit confused, I certainly was, and I couldn't understand what was happening (which is great, its boring when you figure it out early in the book) and when i got to the point where all looked clear... well.. you still get shocked afterwards.

Ex-Purgatory was written in a different approach and actually that was one of its pros, its ending was good and twists are always there...

Cons: Narrator.. Jay Snyder is a good narrator, and he did a good job as always.... But where are the others?? I liked the combo of narrators as in the past books... it doesn't always work when you have different narrators for a single book, but in this series it works well... so ya guys, bring them back in the next book.

So go ahead, change is good, and you will like this addition!

Great change of pace!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I loved it! Yes I would recommend.


Any additional comments?

Only thing I missed was the additional voice actors. I missed hearing Captain Freedom and Stealth. Don't get me wrong Jay Snyder is good, but we were spoiled before with the othe audio presentations.
