Summary

For dinosaurs, it was a big rock. For humans: Coronal Mass Ejection (CME). 
When the Earth is hit by the greatest CME in recorded history (several times larger than the Carrington Event of 1859), the combined societies of the planet's most developed nations struggle to adapt to a life thrust back into the Dark Ages. 
In the United States, the military scrambles to speed the nation's recovery on multiple fronts including putting down riots, establishing relief camps, delivering medical aid, and bringing communication and travel back on line. 
Just as a real foothold is established in retaking the skies (utilizing existing commercial aircraft supplemented by military resources and ground control systems), a mysterious virus takes hold of the population, spreading globally over the very flight routes that the survivors fought so hard to rebuild. The communicability and mortality rates are devastating, leaving only small pockets of survivors scattered throughout the countryside. 
Commune: Book One is the story of one small group of survivors who must adapt to a primitive, hostile world or die. As they learn the rules of this new era, they must decide how far they're willing to go to continue living, continually asking themselves the same question daily: is survival worth the loss of humanity?

I want to adopt the characters into my family

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!

Plausible

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.
