This book starts of slow, but is something Ive wanted to read for a long time. Its not the usual American story where masses of fire power and Humber's are available and every body is ex military and bumps into and bonds with army buddies. In Australia we have different gun laws and not every body is going to pull out an M5 and shoot each other. This book is written by an Australian, in Australia. Looking forward to reading the rest.

Had to strain to hear the narrators voice. Soft, feminine and quick little bursts. I couldn't handle it after the first 5 minutes. May have been a good book if a Jack Reacher type narrator was behind the wheel.

To slow, no story. 5 hours latter and still describing the website. We get it already. Move on with the story.

I think this is a book that needs to be listened to in one sitting. If you miss a line you lose your spot. Every time I had a minor distraction I had to rewind it. I listen to Audible while I'm doing things. This is a book that needs concentration, and I cant just sit down for 11 hours...unless I'm reading a book. If I was still driving a truck, it may have been better for me.

A bit too 'army' orientated for me. I would love to hear a post apocalyptic book set in Australia with roos and sheep to hunt and as our gun laws are very restricted, survival with hunting rifles. The fire power in the US just make it a 'He who has the biggest gun, wins' story. I mean Night vision goggles and machine guns?..who has those?

Slow to start with but had to stick it out as I had already bought the whole trilogy. Picked up around ch 30 and glad I didn't put it away. Looking forward to the rest. A few people complained about monotone. I loved the voice. It is a serious book, not a famous 5 mystery. I think the narrators voice did it justice.

Has potential for a good story, but just rattles on and on. Too slow. Had to stop half way through. I dont know how the author can stick it out, just thinking about "nothingness" to write, just to make up space for a longer book. Sorry. It was gruelling.

Just in time.

A good read for fast paced action and light entertainment, but 'someone coming in..just as she is about to get killed' is becoming a bit repetitive. I think this scenario has been milked enough. 3 books is enough. I prob wont read a fourth, if one is forth coming.

Why so short?

Good book, but why are the three only 4 hrs long? Why cant we have them in a 12 hr stint. We are paying nearly $45, for one story. I dont know about everyone else, but I am feeling a tad ripped off.

Dissapointing

Like 'Maralinga'. On and on and on...nothin happening. Pick up the pace, I am losing interest. A big change from her earlier works. The unnecessary dialog is mind numbing.
