This is the sort of book where you feel like you should clutch your chest when you hear about love so fierce and pure and sweet.

I nearly quit listening after 5 minutes of listening to that guy’s voice but it kind of grows on you.

Looking for more from this author

What great characters this guy writes. The main character is everything a lazy father and rubbish husband should be and he takes forever to wake up to himself. Loved the Harvey character too. Typical Aussie bloke and acts just the way I’d expect.

The narrator does a brilliant job too, from Aussie accent to whining child. Loved him!

Enjoyable series

Good series of books. I found some parts a little pointless, like the inclusion of the astronauts but I suppose people do wonder what happens to people stuck in space during such an event.

Good range of characters involved and the narrator was pretty good except for the whining children’s voices.

Nice to read something Australian

I get bored with American fiction that is overly-dramatic. This book is well written and it makes a nice change to hear an Australian accent and hear about the Australian landscape. Well thought out storyline

Good story but not a massive fan of the narrator

Good characters in this story, though I did just finish listening to Sarah Fleming’s series so I found it hard to love these characters as much as the ones that Fleming writes.

I liked the narrator’s voice for the main character - Clayton but I loathed all the other voices he does. The women all sound like whinging children and Jake Watson’s accent is really aggravating.

I also like stories that explain more about how things happen, where as this author skips most of the details of the way the world has collapsed.

Loved this book

Great book series, pleasant narration and characters that you fall in love with.

Will be keeping an eye out for more stories by Fleming. Now one of my favourite authors.

Really love the way Fleming writes her characters. This series and the City series are amongst my all time favorites in this genre.

I listen while walking and this morning, I had tears streaming down my face, so embarrassing!

Fleming writes her characters so well. You feel you really get to know them.

I prefer the City Series but only marginally. Possibly because I like the main characters a little more. That’s no slight to this series though, love this story too and it’s nice to find out what happens to other people during the same time.

Interesting concept but doesn’t really deliver

I feel like the author didn’t take this concept as far as I wanted. I liked the main character and I enjoyed the style of the writing - the half finished sentences and thoughts felt quite real but I wanted more from the story.

Jumping straight into book 8

Can’t wait to read book 8. Such a brilliant series. Maybe a little heavy on the details of the guns and so on but not enough to put me off. I really love the characters. Devon C Ford is a masterful writer.
