If you have been watching The Expanse on Amazon Prime, then the Book or Audiobooks are a must; as detailed as the show is the book has so much more detail in it.

This Audiobook Leviathan Wakes is captivating and compelling, which brings the characters and story to life with apparent ease, the Audio narration is excellent and easily brings the popular characters to life, highly recommended Audiobook.

Altered Carbon is set in a Blade Runner style future environment, brought to life with gripping description. I can honestly say Netflix did an amazing job bringing this Sci Fi epic to life. That all said and done this audiobook version is seriously next level stuff, the narration was spectacular, bring each character to life . Put simple Altered Carbon is a must for any Sci Fi enthusiast, a Must Read/Must Listen.

Ben Wallace has written another classic Apocalyptic Adventure, that screams Netflix or Amazon Prime material, with more plot twists and humour than some people can apparently handle. The story is very well written, combining action, humour and tragedy in even measure. Phil Thron brings the characters to life with humour and passion, the blooper reel if it exists is most likely epic. Like, Ben's Duck and Cover Series of books, this story is highly recommended to his Fans and new readers alike, hopefully we'll read more from John, Chris and Eric in the Dads Vs Zombies series soon.

Excellent short tales from the Post Apocalyptic mastermind, Ben Wallace. Some nice tie in tales with Jerry and Chewie and one does wonder if we will meet some of the new Characters again, perhaps the skilled female Nomadic Warrior and her K9 pack will run into Jerry in the future. Another fantastic book, if you enjoyed the 4 initial Duck and Cover Nomadic Warrior books and can't wait for the forthcoming 5th book, then this will help pass the time with ease.

A truly Epic exercise in story telling

The Librarian (Jerry) and Chewie meet there Destiny head in this final book of the series; extremely well read by Phil Thron, will Jerry and Chewie Return? Hopefully they will, continuing to bring sanity to the Post Apocalyptic landscape. Has some of the old world order survived to claim the world again, will the stories get a TV Deal???? When will the Post Apocalyptic Nomadic Warrior Return............

Yet another fantastic Post Apocalyptic tale for everyone's favourite Liberian, however for Kerry things take on a tragic twist that sends him on a quest for revenge; brilliantly read by Phil Thron, another highly recommended Post Apocalyptic story, it would make an excellent TV show.

If you like Post Apocalyptic tales with a comic matter of fact twist then this story is for you, I found it highly entertaining and very well read by the narrator, who it has to be said was once more fantastic.

Give it a go, pretty sure you'll become a Post Apocalyptic Nomadic Warrior given half the chance.

I read Xan as a paperback as a teenager, and the tale of Sci Fi Horror has stayed with me since 1986, I even still have my copy of this 1950s style sci fi story where the unfortunate residence of mid west America and the US Government are completely out matched by an Alien of unbelievable power, tactics and skill.

The delivery of XAN on Audible, was read very effectively, by a skilled reader whose mellow accent and voice skills draw you into the story with skill making it very memorable.

If this story ever landed on Amazon Or Netflix it could make a fantastic Movie, Mini Series or if expanded upon a complete TV show.

Needless to say fond memories of this story have not be disappointed by this version, thoroughly captivating and highly enjoyable.
