- Commune, Book 1
- By: Joshua Gayou
- Narrated by: R.C. Bray
- Length: 9 hrs and 46 mins
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.

Even if you don’t like apocalyptic novels - this is for you!
I usually detest apocalyptic based novels, but Joshua has made me a convert. I was pleasantly surprised and impressed as to how much thought and detail he has put into Commune. The characters are well thought out and their development makes perfect sense. I will definitely be getting the next in the series. R C Bray as usual is amazing!
