Publisher's Summary

A dense black cloud boiled up in the southeastern sky. It rose high and fast, like a time-lapse movie of the birth of a thunderhead. But it was no rain cloud. Wholly black, it reached up and up until it loomed over her, blocking out the sun. Somehow, she knew, it was Death coming for her.
Pre-med student Coral is on vacation in Idaho when something terrible happens. The black cloud is followed by a wildfire and searing heat that lasts for days. She survives deep in a cave but emerges days later to find the world transformed, with blackened trees, an ash-filled sky, and no living creatures stirring - except for her.
So begins her desperate journey to find water and food and other survivors...and the answer to the mystery of what happened.
Note: This is a combined edition of Gray I, Gray II, and Gray III.

Where does Gray rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is such an amazing book. It is definitiely near the top.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Gray?

When Coral found the boy who died, I really felt for her and was glad to see her humanity evident here and througout the book.

What does Lauren Fortgang bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Excellent narration, brought the book to life, so well done.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES! Sadly and not sadly its way too long.

Any additional comments?

This was a book I was heistant to try, I have never heard of the author and have been so disappointed by all the dystopian trash that is out there. This is very different. There are no "heroes" here or epic wars, just a world that could truly happen and characters that you truly care about who you are on a journey with because you as the reader dont have the answers to their questions either. The book doesnt end in a tidy little package, with all your questions answered, or every arc dealt with completely, but life is like that, which makes it all the more engaging.

It's nice and quiet

I wasn't sure that I wanted to continue with the book bc it was crazy slow in the beginning. However, I am glad I stuck with it, as it was well worth it.
