Obscura - audiobook
Obscura - Joe Hart,Christina Traister

 

 

This book combines sci-fi, horror, and suspense into a gripping adventure filled with surprises. I listened to this book every chance I had and stayed up late last night to finish it. As much as I thought I knew about how it would turn out, I was still surprised.

 

Gillian is a neurosurgeon drafted by NASA to figure out what's going wrong with the astronauts on the space station. Turns out Gillian wasn't given all the details or told the entire truth about the situation. Gillian is a character with many flaws, but she is strong and never gives up. Even when it seems like all hope is lost, Gillian finds a way to keep going.

 

I listened to the audiobook and loved it. The narrator was amazing; I felt like I was trapped with Gillian - the fear, the claustrophobia, the doubt about who to trust. One thing that irked me a bit was the Swedish accent the narrator used for one of the characters. It was a bit like listening to Dracula as a neurosurgeon's assistant.

 

This is a fabulous book. Highly recommended.

 

I read this for the New Release square

As if being alone on a spaceship isn't enough... there are voices, smells, doors opening, things missing.

 

Poor Gillian thinks she's going crazy and I'm not sure she's wrong.

It was a good month of reading with 17 books total read and listened too, actually, a lot of those were Audiobooks.  I've found something new I can do while listening, it's an app called Sandbox and I have it on my Samsung tablet, so easy to do while listening, especially since I'm always icing my foot.  The reason I'm always icing is foot is because I went back to work two weeks ago (only 4-hour shifts, though) and it's kicking my ass.  I just finished my last book of the month today, even.  (I had this post all drafted up and had to add it in at the last minute...)

A Sound Sci-fi Thriller
Obscura - Joe Hart

This book turned out to be quite a surprise, in a positive way, that is. After a bit of a shakey start it had me hooked.The idea behind the madness on the space station was new and interesting although I could see what was going to happen. I didn't find it frightening but it was quite tense. All in all it was better than I expected from a Kindle Unlimited book.
