White River, Arkansas: 1980

In a secret lab, top-level medical scientists work together to harness the power of previously unheard of DNA manipulation. When the project finally comes to fruition with the birth of a specially designed baby, it just as abruptly comes to a bloody halt. The facilities and nearly every member of the team are wiped out, silenced forever ... almost.

White River, Arkansas: 2019

The small town awakens one morning to find itself ground zero of a joint UN-US terrorist training exercise.

    "What a disappointment"
    What was most disappointing about James W. Brazier’s story?

    A nauseating mix of right wing US politics, religious clap trap and pro life intolerance permiates this book. It is a clumsy and very unsubtle attempt by the author to advance his world view; god is real (the Christian one that is) and Islam is the work of the devil... Thank goodness FBI Agent Rashid has begun to see the beauty and truth of the Bible and the flaws in the Koran. Just glad it's over...

    "Be prepared for alot of religion and politics"
    What disappointed you about The Arrival?

    It felt like more than half the book was taken up by complaints about the liberal government and religion. The prepurchase description didn't provide any clue that was really the majority of the book. The underneath story line that I was expecting was buried.


    Would you ever listen to anything by James W. Brazier again?

    No


    Which character – as performed by Elliot Schiff – was your favorite?

    They were all similiar


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointed in that the pre-purchase description of the plot really match


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator was very good.

    "I hope that there is a sequel soon!"

    it starts our slow than it bounces around a little, so you have to remain patient and then the tory line starts to make sense. Then you are hooked but the ending was cut short and you wanted more.

    "Perhaps the worst Audible Boek. Ever"
    What would have made The Arrival better?

    The removal of all political and cultural misrepresentations.


    Would you ever listen to anything by James W. Brazier again?

    No.


    What didn’t you like about Elliot Schiff’s performance?

    He had no material to work with.


    What character would you cut from The Arrival?

    All of them.


    Any additional comments?

    Most novels promote a politial/cultural point of view. This was so over the top that it was nearly intolerable.
