A decadent rock star. A deeply religious radio host. A disgraced scientist. And a teenage girl who may be the world's last hope. From the mind of Chuck Wendig comes an astonishing tapestry of humanity.
Shana wakes up one morning to discover her little sister in the grip of a strange malady. She appears to be sleepwalking. She cannot talk and cannot be woken up. And she is heading with inexorable determination to a destination that only she knows. But Shana and her sister are not alone. Soon they are joined by a flock of sleepwalkers from across America, on the same mysterious journey. And, like Shana, there are other 'shepherds' who follow the flock to protect their friends and family on the long dark road ahead.
For on their journey, they will discover an America convulsed with terror and violence, where this apocalyptic epidemic proves less dangerous than the fear of it. As the rest of society collapses all around them and an ultraviolent militia threatens to exterminate them, the fate of the sleepwalkers depends on unravelling the mystery behind the epidemic. The terrifying secret will either tear the nation apart or bring the survivors together to remake a shattered world.

Faaaaaaaaaar toooooooooooo long
A large cast of characters, few of which really caught my interest or sympathy. Excessively detailed acts of violence. Large nods toward popular sentiments in the projected audience. A plot that would have easily fit into a 4 hour audio book, that is, into a short novel. A herd of clichés walks through a muddle of ill-fitting plot elements, with hardly original (or deep) social comment to fill the pages (and hours). By the time the audio book ends, plausibility and coherence had long kicked the bucket, just to turn over in their graves for the final cliff-hanger. The two speakers do an exceptional job, and their performance is by far the most outstanding part of the audio book. I hope they can afford to voice more interesting books in the future, and avoid wasting their talents on the upcoming sequel.
