The impossible has happened. The Lord Ruler is dead. But so too is Kelsier, the man who masterminded the triumph. The awesome task of rebuilding the world has been left to his protege Vin - a onetime street urchin, now the most powerful Mistborn in the land. Worryingly for her, Vin has become the focus of a new religion, a development that leaves her intensely uneasy.

Read very well by Michael Kramer. I personally found the story a little boring for most of the book but the last few chapters really made a lot up for it.

After nearly four years, the zombie epidemic has almost burnt itself out. Gus' new life on a communal farm is peaceful. The daily routine of policing the fields is rarely disrupted by straying undead. His drinking binges are over. Long days have thrown time over the memories of Annapolis. But this will all change.

Where does Well Fed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Well Fed is now my favourite in the Mountain Man series. Exciting, action-packed and ties up all those loose ends!

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favourite character in Well Fed is Ollie, he's incredibly strong.

What does R.C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

R. C. Bray, as with all his narrations, brought this book to life.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If I could have listened to this all in one sitting I would have!

Any additional comments?

I loved this book and while it does tie up all the loose ends, I really hope there is a Mountain Man Book 5 on the horizon.

Whilst slow at some points, R. C. Bray brings to life the main character's struggle for survival and slow decent into madness. I recommend it for people who really enjoyed the first MM.

Boomstick. Samurai bat. Motorcycle leather. And the will to live amongst the unliving. Augustus Berry lives a day-to-day existence comprised of waking up, getting drunk, and preparing for the inevitable day when "they" will come up the side of his mountain and penetrate his fortress. Living on the outskirts of a city and scavenging for whatever supplies remain after civilization died two years ago, Gus knows that every time he goes down into undead suburbia could be his last.

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

My first audiobook, after much doubt I was enlightened. R. C. Bray is an exceptional narrator to Andy Weir's exceptional story.
