Publisher's Summary

When World War 3 erupts on American soil, it is up to some less than likely heroes to band together and stand tall against any and all comers as a once proud nation is brought to her knees.

Cowardly terrorist attacks and indifferent global communities have isolated America as she spirals into a desperate bid for survival. Follow Darlene Bobich and her group on the West Coast along with Michael Talbot on the East Coast as they do everything in their power to thwart those who would take away everything that they and all of us are.

another excellent book from Tufo and Rosamilia

Great from start to finish. my only moan ( I'm British so I have to) is it's to short but even if it was 100hrs long it would be to short. I can't wait for the next book

Excellent

Another Tufo masterpiece but this time written in conjunction with Armand Rosamilia.
A partnership that clearly works.
As usual the narration is the icing on the cake.
Hurry up and get book two published please

Would love to hear more

I have listened to most of his pervious zombie fallout books.
So I loved the 'new/different' version of (main character.)
(Male narrator) Sean Runnette brought him alive as he did before. But with the twists that Mark had made to his character. It was easy to tell the difference between the characters that Sean had to play voices were done were well.

Julia Whelan I had not listened to a book that was read by her before. I would do in the future again she brought quite a number of characters to life with a different vocal range.

Mark Tufo and Armand Rosamilia did a fantastic job of making characters, keeping you interested in the story and wanting you to hear more.

Amazing Narration then Terrible Narration

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Wow there are some great reviews on this book but time and time I try to finish this book and it just really does not work on the narration level. I am such a Mark Tufo fan and Sean Runnette is brilliant, the best narrator on Audible in my view followed by R C Bray. I really just can not connect to Julia Whelan narration though, every time she narrates i think this is so boring and it is almost like blacking out as i just can't remember what she was saying. I don't want to sound rude and however big a fan of Mark i am this just did not work for me I really don't think i will ever be able to finish this book as the joint narration does not work for me.

What was most disappointing about Mark Tufo and Armand Rosamilia ’s story?

I could not follow the story sorry due to amazing and terrible narration.

Would you be willing to try another one of Sean Runnette and Julia Whelan ’s performances?

Sean yes 100% Julia sorry i see others love you so good luck to you but i am an oddity where the narration really turns me off and i just can not follow the plot.

Any additional comments?

Please see my review and then others, Mark is an amazing writer so if the narration is good for you then go for it as i don't doubt it is a brilliant story if you can follow it through the narration.

Can't wait till book 2

Great story start to finish,another Tufo masterpiece which links well with Armands half of the story. I have never read any of her work but that will change now. Love the way Mark references his other works in this story and great to have his sparing partner BT .

Bad second narrator meant I couldn't listen

What disappointed you about United States of Apocalypse?

I am a huge Mark Tufo fan, and Sean Runette is the best narrator on Audible. I also really enjoyed the previous collaboration books for Mark Tufo and John O'Brein.

Sadly, I didn't manage to get as far as the Mike Talbot sections in this book. Sean Runnette opens the book and his performance is as usual flawless... but the chapter 3 begins and the difference in quality is just to big a contrast for me.

I've never heard Julia Whelan narrate before and I just found the narration style and the editing /production didn't match up. Julia's style seems to have the emphasis and inflection in very strange places in the dialogue. It's almost like the book is being read by a text to speech program; Mechanical and unnatural. The editing seems off too, with many sentences seeming to start with the first word clipped and missing it's beginning.

Sorry to say that I never made it through chapter 3 due to the narration and am returning (for the first time ever for a Mark Tufo / Sean Runnete book) for a refund.

I just couldn't listen any more.....

How could the performance have been better?

I'm afraid Julia Whelan's narration stopped me listening...
