Unbelievably Well Done!!!
Would you listen to Ghost of the Gods again? Why?
Quite likely. There was a great deal of detail in both books of this series that another listen will probably bring additional levels of understanding and depth to my emotional experiences with both books in this series.
What about Kevin T. Collins’s performance did you like?
The narrator did such a fabulous job, in both this book, and Immortality, of bringing each character to life through different voices. The emotional range he put behind the voice of each character made it almost impossible to stop listening when I had to go to work, to sleep or meet other life requirements,
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
If it was not 20 hours long, I likely would have attempted to gobble it up all in one listen. Immortality, the first book of the series, was exactly the same. I could hardly wait for this book to download so I could continue with the story.

Worth a listen, but...
This book continues the story of the "nano plague" started in "Immortality." The story's premise, as with the first, is great, the characters and some of the plot, a little less so. Here are some of the points I did not care for:
-The character "Noah" made no sense to me, and as far as I could tell didn't do very much.
-The character "Cathy," after having split with Mark amicably (though she feels still in love with him), slaps and hates on Mark all through the last third of the book instead of behaving like an adult. Seriously, Cathy, the dude is a trans-human hybrid and you're surprised he falls for another one? Grow up Cathy!
-General McCafferty (sp?) goes from hating Mark's guts with the fury of a thousand suns to worshiping the ground he walks on in the span of like three chapters.
-The God Machine goes from eliminating 2/3 of all humans to loving them at the end of the book? I don't get that, but maybe its just me. Due to the interface at the zero-g labs? Maybe I'm just dumb on this one, but why the 180?
-WHERE IS THE REST OF THE WORLD?? You mean to tell me that all the rest of the world sat on it's backside after having it's population decimated? Russia, China, UK, where are you guys? Having an end of the world siesta? Maybe the God Machine decided 47000 years ago or whatever that someday there would be a United States, and darn it, it was gonna be an American by god!
Anyway, all that being said, it is definitely not the worst book I've read (listened to). It just could have been great with some changes.
