Enjoyable listen. I thought the choice of narrator Lee the book down. An English narrator would have been better suited to capturing the accents.

The survivors have come to settle in the mountains of Wyoming, fighting day in and day out to establish a home for themselves in a near-empty world. Things are good at first; scavenging is a workable, short-term solution that seems to be providing all they need. But they know that it’s only a matter of time before the food runs out. They need to scramble to find a sustainable solution before the clock stops, and for a little handful of people up in the mountains, the odds don’t seem very favorable.

Without the insertion of Gibbs in this book I would not have continued. The groaning explanation of all things guns continued but at least the character of Gibbs made it more bearable.

Glad George Guidall narrating is back. Wasn’t fond of the last narrator but certainly wish him well.

Fourteen-year-old Greg Dixon is living a nightmare. Attending boarding school outside of Boston, he is separated from his family when a pandemic strikes. His classmates and teachers are dead, rotting in a dormitory-turned-morgue steps from his room. The nights are getting colder, and his food has run out. The last message from his father is to get away from the city and to meet at his grandparents' town in remote New Hampshire.

This book just never generated any mystery or pathos or excitement. The author bored me with the minutia of the survivors experience while missing opportunities to inject a bit of excitement or tension. He continually repeated the retelling of individual experiences or over explaining (mansplaining) boring minor details while the plot languished. The worst injury experienced by the survivors was loss of weight and a cut to a hand. The story was not epic but the price certainly was. Don’t waste your time. I bought this because of the narrator Scott Brick. His narration as always was masterful. Pity the writing didn’t meet his skill.
