Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

Terror has a new sound...and it comes from the darkest corners of James Patterson's imagination.

Young sisters, Sophie and Tennant Riggin, are the only two people to withstand a massive explosion that destroys their community, located in the shadow of Oregon's Mt. Hood.

A team of elite government investigators are sent to research the fallout and the girls - why did only they survive? - but with conflicting objectives. For Dr Martha Chan, a psychologist who analyses large-scale medical emergencies: study them. For Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Fraser, a career military leader with an inherent mistrust of civilians: contain them.

But as the disturbance replicates across the Pacific Northwest, it threatens to topple the chain of command. Dr Chan and Lieutenant Colonel Fraser are caught between the perpetrators of the threat - and those who have the power to resist.

Brilliant

The audible version of this book is fantastic. Performance of all narrators were exceptional and the sound effects were brilliant.

Female narrator is awful

Good story, but the female narrator for the ‘Martha’ chapters is so so so bad! It’s like a high schooler is reading the story. She over emphasises the wrong words, ends sentences like she is asking a question and tries to be overly dramatic. Really hard to listen to. Rest of the cast and production were good though!

Frightening


I did enjoy this book, it makes one think of the possibilities of this happening, as we are so reliant on the Internet now and that the internet could be turned into a tool is frightening!

The female reader is a disappointment.

The female reader’s way of exaggerating and dramatising made all female characters appear slightly dumb and historical. Overall, the way this was read is best suited for a haunted house story for 9 year olds.

Other than that, it’s good

Stupid sound effects, just READ IT!!! They ruined it with stupid sound effects and screams. It just ruined the book. I’ll try again if the record it without the extras.
