Summary

It’s the end of the world as you've never known it.

Join the Librarian as he does his best to make the post-apocalyptic world a better place by protecting the weak, fighting injustice, squaring off against a group of former renaissance fair workers who have established a kingdom in the Rocky Mountains, and so on. Can one man make a difference in the face of such murderous cannibals and super smart bears? Probably not. 

The Boom Box includes:

Post-Apocalyptic Nomadic Warriors (Book 1) 

An army of savage raiders have their sights set on the peaceful town of New Hope and the people are going to need help. When two nomads offer their assistance, one is hired and the other is sent back into the wasteland. Did they choose the right man for the job?

Knights of the Apocalypse (Book 2)

A price on their heads has driven the Librarian, Erica, and their loyal mastiff west in search of a new beginning. But when their truck breaks down in what was once southern Colorado they are swept into an epic quest at the behest of King Elias, ruler of the Kingdom of the Five Peaks and former turkey leg magnate. 

Pursuit of the Apocalypse (Book 3)

A bounty hunter has kidnapped Erica and the Librarian and his dog, Chewy, are desperate to get her back. The chase will take them from the deserts of west Texas to the town of Tolerance and beyond. Be a part of the greatest chase the apocalypse has ever known. 

It’s post-apocalyptic mayhem of the highest order in the series listeners are calling Mad Max meets Monty Python.

Was ok.

Got this book because there was a lot of adds for it on Facebook and when it came up with all three books for one credit i thought "Heck. why not." The books were ok but didn't seem to live up to the hype. Good take on the apocalypse.
Will defiantly give it another listen in a while.

Perfect

From the humble beginnings to the storied end. I absolutely cannot wait for the next volume. The intense and detailed action mixes perfectly with the author's ability to twist bits of the real world into a characature of itself.

Great book, great narration.

This series surprised me. I thoroughly enjoyed the first 3 books. Often funny, but still an apocalyptic story with all gruesome things that come with that world.

The Post-Apocalypic story we all deserve!!!

Absolutely amazing! The mutants, raiders, bounty hunters, plants, the very wasteland itself is out to claim the Librarian. With a determination to do what's right, Jerry fights a death truck, journeys to rescue a princess, and fights a P.C. saftey zone gone wrong. With a helping paw from Chewie, the Post-Apocalypic Nomadic Warrior gives us a tale like none other. War, humor and slap stick comedy are only the start of how to describe this. I can't wait for what is to follow!

Funny and Exciting (******warning spoilerish****)

******WARNING SPOILER ALERT!!!******

Benjamin Wallace (please read with a heavy sarcastic accent) absolutely hate the ending to this book. How could you? What is so dead in your heart? I don't know if I can even go on to read Revenge I am soooooo devastated.

I really enjoyed this set. I loved the characters. how they are bigger than life, but it still seems like you know someone like so many of them.

Tolerance has to be the most accurate portrayal of certain "snowflake" campuses. Not to mention the main Big Bad taking from everyone else to give to some certain chosen toadies.

Amazing

Im an immense fan of Phil Thron's dulcet tones but I kept waffling about getting these books. What a fool I am. This series and Benjamin Wallace's style is another perfect fit for Phil's vocal ministrations. What a perfect blend of humour, action and suspense. This value packed bundle would be a deal at three times the price.

what a fun read!

all of the best that science fiction can offer both for those who are used to watching Star Trek and Star Wars as well as those who prefer to read something like 1984 or Brave New World the author social commentary is on point means of execution standing in his writing style is just plain fun
