Live the adventure. Go BZRK.
Michael Grant has worked on children's books for decades, including Animorphs with his wife K.A. Applegate and Everworld.
The audiobook (and novel) is only one piece of the grand picture. From the gobzrk.com website the story will be an interactive multiplatform project.
They take the names of madmen because madness is their fate. They descend into the tiny places, down where the mites leap and the lymphocytes ooze and the spark of human reason fires like lightning from sizzling neurons. Down in the meat. One by one they join the fight. In the macro, in the nano, in both at once, they fight for life, liberty and the inalienable right to be crazy.
BZRK is their method. BZRK is their battle cry. BZRK is their doom.

I love to read, particularly sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and the classics. I'm a librarian and have a long commute so get a chance to read lots
This book started so well, lots of violence, gore and intrigue. Things I expect from Michael Grant novel. But at some point it started to get rather tedious and I mentally blanked out a few times and had to rewind the audio only to realise I've not zoned out of anything of importance.
Great potential for this novel to be fantastic, and anyone who is a hardcore fan of nanotechnology within literature will love this, but it all seemed a tad too clinical and descriptive at times.
Narration is good however. Evers-Swindell does a good job with the multitude of characters on offer. I would note that his attempt at female characters is rather hit and miss however.
