Patient 3 by Chris Chau
Michael was diagnosed with a disease in which there was no known cure let alone what caused it. To live until a cure was found meant being placed into a deep coma. Everything he loved, everything he knew when he went to sleep was alive and well. Then seven years later he awakes to find everything he knew and loved was different; everything except for his roommates who were being woken up from their comatose state as well. Now the race is on to get to a safe place, find his family and the cure. Out there, in his world where nothing he knew remained and where beings from his wildest dreams hunt him, Michael takes off with voice recordings from his wife, food, a map and little else.
Chris Chau takes a terrifying story and adds a few twists that leave the listener thinking “Oh yeah, I knew he was going there” only to be left instead with one’s mouth hanging open declaring “I never saw that coming!” The characters are appropriately developed – some more than others in order of importance to the story. Barely longer than 6 hours, this story had the potential to be much longer, and actually, I hated hearing it end.
Coy Dugger was the narrator who performed the story with a smooth pace and a natural tone. He helped add to the suspense and never gave anything away through tone inflection or voice. I have not had the pleasure of hearing him perform before but I hope to again.
There were no issues with the quality or production of this audiobook.
I would highly recommend this book if you want something unique and different.
