Publisher's Summary

A flash of light crippled society in an instant...

For young Lexi Broadmoor and her brother Travis, the detonation not only took their father away, but their future as well. Now stranded on a highway far from home without any survival skills or someone to protect them, staying alive will depend on their wits, a single bug-out bag, and a map to a stranger's house.

With the grid down and a nation quickly descending into chaos, they'll need to hurry, because the lawless are taking over.

But a larger threat looms.

A mysterious foe has set in motion a countdown to Armageddon; unknown to Lexi and Travis, they're part of the plan.

Movie Rating: R for language and violence.

unintelligent

To be fair I did not listen to the entire book. I couldn't get through the first 6 chapters. I myself keep my firearm close, and believe no one should be lackadaisical about the world around them. This book makes it sound like peppers are always the crazy ones who shoot first not caring about the question. I will leave that to all the militia types. This book seems to be right up their alley.

I wish it didn't try so hard with it's dramatic turns...they wound up being a distraction.

SurplusLus of hate monte ring

Love the genre. First time I can say I don't like the story. Is filled with hate and predjudice. Themes lack direction at times and take too long to get to point. Will not be buying any more from this particular author.

Really wanted to like this more, but just couldn't

There are lots of pieces here to like. They just don't fit together in one solid story. There are too many switch backs, coincidences and weak sub-plots. The heroine is developed enough to follow along but the supporting characters and motives are weak. The author depends too much on twist of fate to make the story durable.

The narrator is excellent and does a very good job with what he has to work with. Good character differentiation, story pace and tone. Enjoyable to listen to.

This is a favorite genre for me as a reader / listener. However, this is not one of my favorite experiences.

Could not finish the book

This was horrible. The story was immature and lacking depth...kinda like getting to the pool only to find out it's all kiddy pool depth. Accents were horrible! Logic escaped the author on too many occasions for me to enjoy the book...or even finish it.

Apparently all women are stupid angry trolls

In this book all American serviceMEN are honorable, all woman are whiny idiots. I thought Lexi was 12 until 4 hours in when they said she was 22. She acted like a spoiled child. All The other women so far are angry and whiny, or dead.
The authors have a lot of good ideas for decent story telling, but their dislike of women makes it difficult for me to listen while they call all of us stupid and/or useless.
They spend a lot of effort plugging their other books as well. They keep saying the name of the prepper brothers guide over and over again and having characters compliment it. I feel like I paid for an advertisement.
I love this genre. I wish there were more books to read in it. I wish these Two would write a smart capable woman. I am quitting at 4 hours 33 minutes in.

Unrealistic

What disappointed you about Highway: A Post-Apocalyptic Tale of Survival?

Neither the plot nor the characters are credible. Authors who have no military experience should have a veteran consultant read their manuscript to eliminate embarrassment.

Any additional comments?

I'm sending this one back.

interesting

with our open borders this is a very viable possibly. Even with this last election we can not let our guard down. prepare and be ready. I would rather have it and not need it then need it and not have it.
