Sintesi dell'editore

Something big is coming...big enough to destroy the entire solar system...and it's heading straight for Earth. That's what Dr. Ben Rollins, head of Harvard's exoplanet research team, is told by NASA after being dragged out of bed in the middle of the night. His first instinct is to call his daughter and wife, who are vacationing in Italy: Something is coming, he tells them, a hundred times the mass of our sun. We can't see it, we don't know what it is, but it's there. They're calling it Nomad, and it's coming fast. In just a few months, the Earth may be destroyed.

The world erupts into chaos as the end approaches - and Ben discovers that his wife and daughter are trapped in Italy. The key to humanity's survival may rest in the final answers he pieces together in the midst of his frantic scramble to find his family before Nomad swallows the planet.

Surprised at the enjoyment

I never read these type books. I'm a cozy mystery kinda girl. When I got the audio of Nomad so inexpensive, I said, "meh, why not listen". It started slow for me and that is probably cuz I was expecting not to enjoy it. And soon enough, I couldn't stop listening. I could feel each characters perspective to the Nomad crisis cuz the writing was great. And surprise, I enjoyed the story. I understand it's not out of the realm of reality for a Nomad situation and I'm intending to enjoy every day and leave this earth being warm, listening to music, wearing my shades laying in a grassy field...safe and secure :) Thanks for the unusual story. I will be getting the next installment.

She'll be coming down the solar system!

Where does Nomad rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top third for sure. For a dystopian themed book, this one alot going for it. Family drama, tribal issues, science, there is a great deal going on here.

What other book might you compare Nomad to and why?

Gosh, the nuances of this one make it unique. Any of the "something heading for earth that will kill us all off" genre would fit. That said, this one is complex and has ( in particular ) family relationships that add to the story and make it a fascinating listen.

What about Keith Szarabajka’s performance did you like?

He was consistent, creative and added intensity to what might otherwise be some dry science sections. A wonderful clear and powerful reading.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I almost did.

Any additional comments?

For the genre this live in, this is a very rich and satisfying listen, with a strong balance of science and drama. It is the start of a series as well, and I look forward to continuing the adventure. Highly recommended.

Fantastic!

I love anything space related and the theoretical science behind it. This book talks about all the fun stuff with a good cast of characters as well. Be sure to watch the YouTube video mentioned at the end to really have what's happening sink in, an awesome bonus to a great book.

Overall interesting

Where does Nomad rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

About in the middle. The premise is good but then the author HAD to start in on the whole government conspiracy theory.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Ok but very disappointed with this whole penchant for the evil government

Which character – as performed by Keith Szarabajka – was your favorite?

Masara

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No particularly

Any additional comments?

It is a good story WHY RUIN IT with all the evil government conspiracy garbage

Kept my interest

I did enjoy this book, but have some thoughts on what would make it better. I did not like the blurbs throughout of survivors. It felt like filler. I believe the book didn't have to be as long as it was. I would of enjoyed this book more if it was split into two books. Just my opinion.

It kept me entertained!

What did you love best about Nomad?

The asteroid is coming with a twist in conjuction with with another entertwined mystery seem to place me on the edge of me seat.

What about Keith Szarabajka’s performance did you like?

Narrator is the type that allows the book to come forth in the imagination and narrator to fade. Perfect.
