The plot was a bit thin in the ground. And far fetched. I’ll listen to the last book though.

Great story and narration. Really interesting and humorous. Would definitely recommend. I’ll be looking for more.

The decision to write this book in the first person made listening to it tedious.

The narrator ruins it

I love these books. It’s so disappointing that they are narrated badly. It would be fantastic if they were re-recorded.

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

Thank god for Gibbs

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.

Loving this!

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

Very underwhelming novel

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.
