Good to hear a end of the world story that isn't zombies. R C Bray does a fantastic job at bring the people to life with the voices he's does. Can't wait for the next one.

First, if R.C. Bray described the process of picking lint from his belly button in one of his many voices, I'd pay money for it. I often pick titles just on the basis of his voice credit, and it's a crying shame he doesn't top Audible's list.
However, as excellent as his narration is, the story itself is THAT good, and I have to give credit to Josh for what is shaping up to be an absolute epic, with a hint of plausibility that is terrifying. Josh puts a lot of emphasis into character development, and this is what makes the book so inviting. His characters immerse themselves into your imagination, full of depth, yet also so shrouded in mystery. That mystery sets you up for a subtle cliffhanger that pervades through the entire story, and leaves you wanting more even after the bonus epilogue.
The documentary format sucks you in, and you quickly lose sight of the interviewer/interviewee context as you journey into the detail of Josh's visualizations. I live in the Western U.S., so all the locations are familiar and well-described, but as I've never personally considered them. I look forward to visualizing them again in my travels, but this time in Josh's artistry through words.
Back to Bray. Bob is hands down the best narrator in the biz. He utterly nails each voice, and the extent to which he prepares is evident in the expert voicing of the story. To say he brings this story to life is an understatement.
This duo will make a formidable pair in Audible's PA genre. Well done fellas!

Very plausible situations that happen throughout the book. Nothing like crazy prepper that has everything in the bag. Kind of slow beginning but it gets better as you go on.
