The countryside between Virginia and Utah now crawls with victims who have been driven mad - violent lunatics fueled with definite yet unknown purpose. To survive, Elliot and Evajean must fight for their lives - against the crazies, against sinister forces who would stop their quest, against long-ago hidden menaces - and uncover the deeply guarded secret of those driven mad and the plague that spawned them. It's the secret of a destructive force unleashed on the world by one of America's most powerful religious sects.

Fascinating reinterpretation of religious history
First, just a word of warning: this story might not be appreciated by those who believe religious history is 100% factual, especially Mormons, but also other Christians. It will probably best mesh with the point of view of those who are no-longer-religious former Mormons. But it should still be an enjoyable adventure/suspense story for most everyone. I personally found the story quite interesting, although a bit disjointed in places. It could have used some smoothing out in some places and some expansion in others, but overall, the story was very interesting -- a nice twist on the recent flood of zombie novels. Some of the parts, such as the caves under Nahom or the well in the tunnel in the basement, were astonishingly nerve-wracking to listen to, and reminded me of the Mines of Moria scene in the the first Lord of the Rings film (which I found a great deal more thrilling than the same scene in the book).
Kudos to Mr. Powell for a job well done. I'll be eagerly awaiting his future books!

Confusing, Hard to Follow, and Lame Zombies
What would have made The Hole better?
SPOILER........I did not mind the inclusion of the twisted Mormon influence in the story, this was in fact the only interesting twist in the book. I did not mind the mythological storyline of how the people became possessed (NOT ZOMBIES). What I hated about the story was the character's dialog, the lack of character building, and the LAME and UNREALISTIC decisions they made during their journey. The ending was abrupt and made zero sense. Not enough action. Confusing story.
Would you ever listen to anything by Aaron Ross Powell again?
Depends on the topic
What character would you cut from The Hole?
The two main characters
Any additional comments?
Should have saved my credit!
