The Borrowed World: A Novel of Post-Apocalyptic Collapse (ADULT AUDIO)

Jim Powell is long way from home, on a business trip with some co-workers, when the U.S. is attacked and life as we know it changes in the blink of a eye.  But all Jim wants is to get home to his wife and kids.  With thousands of other trapped travelers and very little law enforcement, things get really interesting really fast, but has Jim planned well enough?
I found this book especially interesting as I was about half way though it when hurricane Matthew became a real threat to Florida.  I could see things happening on the news and from what family and friends who live there where reporting, and how it paralleled this book.  We have had our own issues here where I live in Kentucky with major week long power outages after ice and wind storms, but you never think of what would happen if the whole country went down at once and for a very prolonged period of time.  It makes you think, for a fiction book this one hits close to home.
This book is really good, it is action packed and the suspense will have you falling off of your seat.  The characters are ordinary people just trying to get by.  I had the audiobook version narrated by Kevin Pierce who does an awesome job giving each character its own personality in voice and attitude.  He really shaped this story and kept Jim Powell's character honest and real to what he says he is, a man who just wants to get home to his family.
