Great book building on the previous novels of 14 and The Fold. Definitely worth a credit

Very different. Well written. Fantastic characters. Not horror or Lovecraft, not fantasy or a detective novel but a great mix of all of those elements.

It flows very nicely on from Carter and Lovecraft, the first book in the series, and leaves the listener longing for more.

Great story with really strong narration. Very different to the TV series. Although I can see why there are comparisons to The Stand it is very different.

As a child of the 70s I remember things like the electric going off but knew very little of the politics. this book was very educational, well written and well read.

Great listen.

very poor compared to previous Michael Lewis books. No real thread or conclusion and little related to Trump from halfway onwards

Having listened to all of Macintyre"s books this is easily the best. I knew nothing about the story at the beginning but couldn't stop listening once I started.

Wants to be pulp fiction but occasionally goes off on a route that doesn't lead anywhere and which doesn't add to the story

This is a great book. Well written, well paced and with strong characters you evolve throughout the book.

Ignore the reviews which mention an overdose of American patriotism - the book is set in an area where there are a lot of patriots and with a strong christian background. If these weren't in the book then it wouldn't be a true representation of the area or the people.

An average story but let down by stupid sound effects and discordant music which distracts and overpowers the performance.
