Publisher's Summary

The future should have been perfect. Microscopic robots known as nans could repair any damage to your body, keep you young by resetting your cellular clocks, and allow you to download upgrades like intelligence, muscle strength, and eyesight. You were supposed to be able to have anything you wanted with a simple thought, to be able to fly without the aid of a machine, to be able to live forever. But when a small group of five terraformers working on Venus return to Earth, they discover that every other human in the solar system has been gruesomely murdered. Now, James Keats and his four companions must discover what happened to the rest of humanity and fight back if they wish to avoid the same, horrifying fate. Welcome to the post-human era…

Blame It On Christmas!

Sometimes I write long review for books I like. It's not intentional - They deserve additional real estate on the page. In this case, I'll keep it VERY small - Christmas shopping, parties and miscellaneous festivities ensue. I'm on my way to a company Christmas party in the heart of the French Quarter! So, blame it on Christmas! Here goes:

It's different from the first, yet a good listen. Interesting changes and continuity. Good character development, but not as much as in the first book. Believably cool technology. Good plot lines, changes, and at least one surprise. Wow! I'm getting the next audiobook in the series. Well worth the Audible credit.

This was the start

Would you consider the audio edition of Post-Human to be better than the print version?

I will always prefer the printed book, but I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it being read.

What other book might you compare Post-Human to and why?

Before reading the Post-Human series, I had never read a book that compared to the concepts that David Simpson puts out there. The only other comparison I can make is to The Matrix. The idea of a all encompassing A.I. that guides humanity wasn't something I thought about before reading Post-Human.

Have you listened to any of Ray Chase’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first time I've heard Ray Chase. He has a very pleasant voice reminiscent of the voice of Sam Neill... an actor with a distinct accent and way of speaking.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

OMG... This book grabbed my attention from the very beginning and didn't let go! This is the book and audiobook that started my love of the Post-Human series!

Any additional comments?

Even though I've read the Kindle edition of the books, I decided to purchase the audio version of the "Post-Human" series. I rarely listen to audiobooks. I'm ADD and it's very easy for me to get distracted from the narration. I didn't have that problem with Ray Chase's narration. His voice was soothing and didn't grate; he was very easy to follow.
