For years, the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security issued warnings - the United States was vulnerable to a cyber-attack. It was 2017 when the attack was finally launched, coming from a direction that no one had predicted, with consequences beyond imagination.
Wyatt and his family were already on the down and out. Years fighting through a struggling economy, tight credit, and government regulations had already taken their toll. When society collapses, they have one chance left - a lifeboat awash in a sea of anarchy. There is a place of safety, a deserted island nicknamed Crusoe - but it won't be easy. The journey requires passage through a landscape decimated by riots, ravaged by desperate looters, and plagued by ruthless pirates.
Apocalypse Drift is the adventure of an everyday American family as they fight for survival in a world gone mad.

So mono, my brain could not cope.
So much anger at ignoring the review. So much regret at wasting a credit
The narrator sounds like a morning DJ giving a weather summary. It may be a good story but i will not know as i can't take the mono voice of the narrator.
I thought the preview was interesting, but the tone and pace of the narrator never EVER changes! I mean NEVER!
A mono voice of a robot
I have regretted a few books in my time with audible, but i would willingly take them all back if they deleted this book than burnt and shredded the hard drive it was stored on, before tipping it into a nuclear reactor.
Why would audible have this book online! Why would they be so cruel!
There is no god! If there was, than this book would not exist.
"Joe Nobody is a Somebody!"
I found myself talking about the ideas presented in this book for several weeks after finishing it. I like the plot and character development, particularly how the characters all portray display a different angle of the overall story. The basis of the story is interesting and thought provoking.
Yes I found myself longing for the trip to work just so I could listen to what was happening to the characters in the story. The way the author showed how the bigger picture interacted in the daily lives of the people was very compelling!
His voice was pleasent but was somewhat slow, so the speed could be increased on the ipad.
No 'moved me' moment, but it was never dull!
I would certainly give Mr Nobody another read!
"Narration is the worst I have listened to"
I think I would have liked this book if the narration hadn't been so bad. It was so bad that that I couldn't finish it. Honestly it was like listening to a bad computer voice.
"Pretty much Barf ! It gave me diabeties."
I love end of the world as we know it books ! And this one had a different "cause" a different "setting" and really showed some promise.But the sugar syrup ran deep,real deep Geez they were swimming in honey.! The perfect wife,the wonderful son.the teenage daughter who was just a little bit disagreeable but always came around Cause this family had more goodness then father knows best !
The father was oh so worried about leading his group,but did a stellar job of course cause the family was just so sweet.Really The dialog made me want to barf.You can read my other reviews and I don't give bad reviews like this,But NO one is that sweet and understanding.
Did I tell you the family was oh so barfing sweet ? Yes they were.Even the "bad guys" weren't to far off the honey train !
Even to the end,the wonderful daughter had a wonderful career cause we are just so sweet ! And it all ends with the wonderful,sweet family being , what else but Sweet. !!
Storyline was okay but more average than great, and the narration was monotone. I stopped listening about 13 hours into it. Not a lot of action and little to no practical use to preppers.
No. Emotionless narrator and ho-hum story. I did like the methods used by the Chinese to initiate the fall of the United States, but the story lacked the punch to be a must read.
Pleasant voice but monotone and mostly emotionless
Perhaps it would be better on-screen.
post apocalyptic fiction is one of my favorite genres. I have a background in economics, sailing and the military, so this one really caught my imagination. my favorite thing about Joe nobody is that he never makes a mistake in talking about specific subjects. I notice most authors make serious mistakes in their books and movies when they get into topics that I know about. for me, that really takes away from the the story. Joe doesn't do that. either he has a deep level of knowledge about a wide range of topics, or he is very very meticulous in his research.
"Felt like i was watching a "Hows it made" episode."
The narration lacked a bit more personality. The tone of the narrator reminded me of the narrator from the show, "Hows it made". I loved the story though and i've heard way worse authors. So all in all this was a good book.
"Leave it to Beaver."
Very Brady Bunch. Written for a 8 to 10 year old. The story had potential, but it is sanitized beyond anything remotely realistic. The reading is like a '60's nature film, more narration than performance.
