"GREAT BOOK... HEAVY RELIGOUS COMPONENT. BUT GREAT!"
THIS BOOK STARTS OUT VERY SLOW, HAS SORT OF A RUNNING SERMON THROUGHOUT THE STORY. THAT SAID IT IS WELL WRITTEN AND IF YOU CONSIDER THE AUTHOR PROBABLY WANTED US HEATHEN'S TO GET A MESSAGE.... WELL IT WORKED... THE STORY IS VERY GOOD AND OF COURSE WHEN KEVIN PIERCE NARRATES ANYTHING IT MAKES IT BETTER... IF YOUR LOOKING FOR BRADLEY'S SURVIVALIST SERIES AND CHARACTERS LIKE MASON REESE FROM THAT BOOK.... KEEP LOOKING.. IF YOU CAN PUT UP WITH A HEAVY RELIGOUS UNDERTONE TO LISTEN TO A DARN FINE STORY BUY THIS BOOK...
I'm a big fan of all of Goodwin's books. This one is no exception. He has a unique way of weaving a faith-based story with a plausible and intriguing reality.
"More of the Same"
OK, I don't want to be harsh. I like Mark Goodwin books. However, the more audiobooks of his that I listen to the more I see the formulaic approach he uses to create his now third miniseries. Don't get me wrong, they all have their merits, but they all have certain similarities that have me wanting to search out new and different authors before returning and starting a series like this. Thankfully, perhaps, this genre is now infused with a wide range of talent to pick from, though finding it may take some trial and error since everyone seems to support their favorite authors and the reviews sometime seem too disingenuous.
As a Christian I'm glad that some Christian authors have found their niche in this genre, but that in and of itself doesn't guarantee well written fiction or adequate survival instruction. In my opinion, Mark Goodwin is at his best when he's developing a backdrop to his stories and describing the world through real current events. He tends to get somewhat bogged down in detail with his main characters and their immediate circumstances. His stories often ebb and flow between mundane issues and fast paced action and the momentum isn't consistent.
That being said, his books (this one included) is fairly well written and offers insightful Biblical references that describe a very real threat. Character development was good though somewhat stereotypical to this genre. There wasn't much new in the way of preparedness except to show how unprepared the main characters were. Overall and enjoyable but somewhat forgettable story.
"Mark Goodwin and Kevin Pearce comma two of my favo"
I think I read all of Mark Goodwin's fictional books I've enjoyed all of them, and of course I always like Kevin Pearce he is one of my favorites narrators or oratory. This book is easy to digest well written the audiobook had absolutely no flaws which actually seems to happen quite often in audio books repeated sentences words misspoken. I read it in one day and had a really great time doing it. I guess in my opinion the only thing I would change would be to have a little bit more information about the characters what they look like maybe a little bit more background on them. Thanks again Mark and Kevin
"Great book and a great story."
I hope the narator is under contract to do all the books in the series . His voice really went with the dialogue and the characters in the story. I also liked the fact that every detail of the firearms were center story. Too many books describe to much every time a weapon comes into play in the story. Say it was a shotgun and move on. I plan on recommending this book to others.
"Another Great Book from Mark Goodwin"
Great book. All the books from Mark Goodwin are entertaining, educational, uplifting and inspirational. It is such a pleasure to have a wholesome story that edifies God, Faith and Family.
This is the first of a series and I am looking forward to the rest of the series. I have the complete set of the previous two series from Mark, The Economic Collapse Chronicles and Days of Noah. Both have been great series.
I am a fan of this genre and have read books from most of the major authors. Marks book are a good as any of them (better than most) but without the heavy handed use of language and excessive violence that you fine in some of them.
Mark does a great job of creating characters, environments and story lines that are developed, relative and relatable.
These are books that are safe for younger readers to read and learn from. A great vehicle for family discussions on Faith, God, Prepping and Personal responsibility.
The narrator, Kevin Pierce, is great as usual. He is the standard for the stories in the genre and for good reason.
"This book is Great!"
I loved everything about this book. Great story and great prepping foodstuff tips. Thank you
"Mark Goodwin is great"
I've enjoyed all of Mark's books! This one is no exception. I'm ready for the next one!
Great story, great narrator! Hope the next one comes out soon! This book has it all for the Christan Apocalyptic reader.
"Prepper/Post-historical Christian Fiction"
Prior to reading this novel, I had read Mark Goodwin's "American Exit Strategy" which was a superb Post-Historical Fiction Novel. After that novel, I struggled with "Behold Darkness and Sorrow" because its story is so much slower paced. It took 19 chapters for the main conflict to manifest. In "American Exit Strategy," the main conflict gets rolling in the first few chapters.
I still enjoyed the story and characters of "Behold Darkness and Sorrow" even though it was very slow.
Also, this novel safely falls under Christian Fiction since God is presented as the main driver of the conflict and story. Other works of Fiction by Goodwin have Christian elements but not as drivers of the story.
I like Mark Goodwin a lot. He is both a good writer and a good Christian writer. I was surprised at how slow the progress of the plot was it "Behold Darkness and Sorrow" as it did take away from the enjoyment for me.
Those looking for a more Preper-flavored novel should instead read his Economic Collapse Series which starts with "The American Exit Strategy."
