Where does SecondWorld rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It was fine. It rattles along at a decent pace, just switch your brain off and try to ignore some of the scientific nonsense going on and you'll be fine.
Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante – was your favourite?
None really. Mr Gigante does a decent job, but characterisation is not his strong suit. Good work on German pronunciation however.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
It's daft, pulp, ridiculous nonsense and a fun listen.

NO ONE WANTED TO GOLF DURING THE APOCALYPSE
I have to agree with the cutie from London, the first three hours were spectacular. An oxygenless world was a FRESH idea. In a world were you can not breathe, who cares about zombies, of which there are none in this. That is about the only thing not in this book.
LET'S CUT THE GRASS AND HIT THE GAS
This story takes place under the ocean, in the air, underground, on Air Force One, in fighter jets, on a aircraft carrier, in helicopters, in Poland, Antarctica, Florida and Washington D.C. You will meet Rocket scientists, tiger sharks, a whale, Four Horseman of the Apocalypse, a CONSPIRACY THEORY NUT JOB, a cowboy and NAZIS, CAN YOU BELIEVE IT. Yes, Nazis, my favorite bad guys. The story includes cryo-gentics and anti- gravity. Watch out for the Rumba Army, Foo Fighters and the Fork Bombs.
GENERALS NEVER GET THIER HANDS DIRTY
Is this believable, H E Double Toothpicks, no. The name of the book is SecondWorld and it is written by Jeremy Robinson, not Crichton. This is a fun novel. An escapist novel. A fun idea, which will never give you nightmares, cause it can't happen. That does not mean it is not creative and entertaining. Robinson entertains, period.
Does a great job as usual.
I have already bought the sequel, Nazi Hunter.

I must say I loved the first 3 hours of this novel. I thought the threat of an oxygenless world was fresh and the whole earlier part of the story was tense, fast-paced and wickedly good.
I didn't, however, feel that the later half of the story held up so well. I really couldn't suspend my disbelief when it came to the 'nazi' ideology and how wide it had spread, or the fact that the POTUS decides to depend on four people to save the world.
From that point on, I still found it an enjoyable thriller, but I can't say I was genuinely engaged in the story anymore.
