"The end of the world doesn't happen with a bang. It takes slightly longer than that but not by much. Research projects, Gross Anatomy class, tests, and fancy coffee drinks will cease to be important. The fight for her life will become the only thing that matters."
Reagan McClane is a prodigy med school student on the brink of a brilliant career, but the United States and the rest of the world are headed toward total economic and social collapse. And it doesn't take more than a few hours for mass crime, looting, and pillaging to spread across the country like a plague. A brutal attack at her university leads to a fight for her life before Reagan barely makes it home to the safety of her awaiting grandparents and sisters on their family farm in Tennessee.
Three sexy Army Rangers, one of whom is married to Reagan's eldest sister, will join the McClane family to build their farm into an impenetrable fortress that they will fight to keep, no matter the cost. Reagan will find that defending her hardened, scarred heart against ever letting anyone in again will prove even more difficult than survival as one Ranger, in particular, tries to invade it. The McClane Apocalypse is a story of love, survival, and the importance of family during the worst of times imaginable.

"Great Book, horrible narrattion"
lt seemed the narrator was reading the story for the first time, without having prereading of the story. Her disjointed reading caused me to stop enjoying the story, many times. This should be re-recorded, with someone who has at least read it a couple of times before putting to tape.
"Great book, but poor narrator"
Preppers reign. People who prepare might make it through the SHTF. The also stick together which would be vital.
My favorite character is John, in love with a girl carrying many hag ups. If she weren't so cute he would have walked away.
I don't like to criticize but the average 6th grader could do a better job of reading. There were no voice changes, and she couldn't even get through a sentence without pausing. I listen to about 2 books a week, but would start listening to the radio again if this is what all readers sounded like. Sorry Andrya Ambro; but you need to find another profession.
Because the story was well written and interesting, I would try the next in the series.
I wish they would make a movie of these books. I have read them at least 5 times. Can't wait for book 2 to come out on audio.
Good storyline with great character development. The naration is well done and easy to listen to.
"Really enjoyed this book!"
The narrator is somewhat robotic... but overall, I found the book hard to put down. can't wait for tge next one!!
"Great teotwawki for the romantic"
Narrator was a little monotonous but the story was cute. More of a shtf for the woman who loves a good romance.
"Good story, poor execution."
I am very torn on my feelings about this book. Let's start with the good. The story is told from multiple points of you and gives you an Ray of subplots to follow in the whole story. It is situated on a farm in Tennessee and has a nice homey five. That's where the good ends.
The narration is flat. There is nothing worse than reading a book with no voice characteristics. It was also was short and clipped. And I felt like there was no emotion. Of course that can be contributed to the book itself as well. The story had a lot of potential but it just missed the important details. That's great that the author put in medical and military terminology. But that's all it had. I felt no emotion no attachment to the characters. I felt like it was right there just to beyond my grasp.
As I've said, the book is a good story. Great foundation and raw material just poorly put together. Because of this I was planning on getting the second book anyway to continue the story. It's not on Audible. I'm the type of person that has a 2 Hour commute every day for work. I don't get to finish the story unless I want to sit at home and read it. Therefore I will never figure out how the story ends.
"Good story, HORRIBLE Narration"
Maybe, but I would probably suggest that they read it themselves. This was the worst narration that I have listened to so far in any book on audio.
I didn't really have a favorite, but I liked Kelly.
I kept thinking about the way I thought I would be reading it. There was no feeling or emotion in the way it was read. I felt like it was a computer or Siri reading the story. I was especially annoyed when the narrator read the word ARGH instead of making the sound that would translate to, Nobody actually says ARGH in real life......
I hope a different narrator is used for the rest of the series.
"I love the storyline but..."
The beginning seems a little rushed, there's not a lot of detail as to what happens, it's just happening.
Also, the narrator. She reads it like she's just reading it. There's no inflection, no difference for each character's voice, and tends to be quite halting and flat. It almost sounds like an automated voice at times.
I like the characters, but am finding Reagan to be like a petulant child, rather than a brilliant 22 year old doctor.
I really hope the narrating improves through the series or I may not be wasting my credits on an audible version.
"so much potential for a good narrator"
I love this series, I've been waiting to see if they would be on audible but I am disappointed in the narrator, I hope the next book has a better one.
"Sad, so sad."
I am so disappointed, I am actually sad! The premise of the book was so great. But the delivery killed it. The audio-book version narration is horrendous. I do not know if it would've been better as a book on in's own... but from what I was able to hear in the narration the presentation of the story overall is lacking greatly. I waned to care for the characters as many of them are so good! So many plot twists are engaging, but die on arrival. I planned to go and see what the rest of the series is like, but to be honest after reading book one, I don't think I will suffer through the other 4 in the series. So, proceed at your own risk.
