Summary

The post-apocalyptic world isn't that bad.

Sure, there are mutants. But, for the people of New Hope, daily life isn't so much a struggle of finding food or medicine as it is trying to find a new shortstop for their kickball team. This makes it difficult for a post-apocalyptic warrior to find work. Thankfully, an army full of killers is making its way to the peaceful town and plans to raze it to the ground. Only a fully trained post-apocalyptic nomadic warrior can stop them.

Two have offered their services. One is invited to help. The other is sent to roam the wasteland. Did the townspeople make the right decision? Will they be saved? Did they find a shortstop? What's with all the bears?

Find out in Post-Apocalyptic Nomadic Warriors, a fast-paced action adventure novel set in a horrific future that doesn't take itself too seriously.

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

Welcome to Dallas. Must have Cash.

Mr.Wallace is fast becoming one of this reader's favourite authors. His ideas are quirky, his characters colourful and his sense of humour is superb. Not for him the doom and gloom of most post apocalyptic world writings. Instead, 'Even a mushroom cloud has a silver lining." Not overly profound, perhaps, but very enjoyable.
Narrator Phil Thron was also excellent, his pleasant to hear voice fitting naturally into the overall tone of the novel with good intonation, pacing and emotionally vocal presentation. Even the different protagonists are distinctly and individually voice. A good performance combining with an enjoyable tale.
My thanks to the rights holder of Post-Apocalyptic Nomadic Warriors who, at my request, freely gifted me a complimentary copy, via Audiobook Boom. For sometimes laugh out loud humour, surprising scenarios, colourful character cameos and a generally enjoyable story of trust and survival, a reader can't go wrong with this book.

An excellent Post-Apocalyptic adventure

As the title says it's a great adventure as Wallace portrays a very realistic world of Mutants, landscapes, scavengers and with a great dry sense of humour as we see all those typical corny mad max type characters come to life with his own brand of humour.
I loved the story and Thron does a good job with Jerry and others so well worth the credit. Jerry is one of the best characters we come across in this new world and it's great to see him on Audio and after this then i will definitely be revisiting his next book om audio.
I requested this audio and have left my thoughts on this for you to peruse.

thoroughly enjoyed this book

what a great book this is exactly how I imagine the end of the world. the author has a great sense of humour and I adore the 3 bears.
plenty of twists and turns and some high speed action mixed with a real romance story and a happy ending. What more could you want?

Absolutely loved it

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

So, this was enjoyable and surprisingly funny. This is my first experience with the Duck and Cover series and I will definitely look for more. The narration is very well done. All in all, you owe it to yourself to pick this book up if you are a fan of apocalyptic fiction.

Loved it!

Post-Apocalyptic Nomadic Warriors is the first book in the Duck & Cover series, and it's an absolute blast. If you like humor and you aren't familiar with Benjamin Wallace then you are missing out, big time! Benjamin add his special brand of humor and added it to a classic road warrior-esque tale. Fast paced with plenty of action and a ton of humor...like the SSB (super smart bears) I was actually listening to this while out in public and kept getting strange looks because I kept laughing. Already picked up the rest of the series for my kindle, but I honestly would rather wait for the audio because....

...Phil Thron's narration was fantastic. He totally brought this crazy world and wacky characters to life, and he delivers the humor perfectly. Seriously he never disappoints.

I received a copy of this audio title in exchange for an unbiased review.

Even a Mushroom Cloud Has a Silver Lining

So - you're probably here because you saw an ad of Facebook or something about this book being being the end of the world -only funny... And that is true.

But aside from just being funny - it's a great story! I absolutely loved this book. And Phil Thron's narration is absolutely spot-on and perfect for this. He brought life to these characters and made me want to keep listening until it was done! Now I want the rest of these books on audible too! (I commute a LOT)

You won't regret this purchase. At all. It's being added to my list of "books I will instantly recommend to everyone".

Creative with great humor

This is not your typical dytopian novel,sure some of it's things you'd expect, smaller populations inhabitable large cities, walls around towns and some people intent of taking advantage of the situation. However in this book, things aren't really 'that' bad, there's lots of hope and most people re doing OK.

There's a lot of humor in this book although the setting is often quite bleak. Both the world and the characters are well developed, it's well written and some of the creatures and situations are unique and creative.

The narration is well done, particularly the character voices, and the delivery is well paced and works well with the story.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

A Messy Apocalypse

This is a fairly zombie-free post apocalypse. They do sort of make an appearance, but don't figure into the story much. There are a lot of other critters, mutants, cars and monsters. The variety of characters and sprawling story telling was a bit disjointed as it seemed there was too much going on. I had a hard time both following the story and caring a lot about the many characters.
The archetype theme seemed to fall flat. It wasn't strong enough to make it really work. Either go all in on it or stay away.
The book was well narrated by Phil Thron and the multiple characters were handled well.
I was given this free audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The Apocalypse Never Looked so Good

This book grabs your imagination (and sense of humor) from the start. Action, Adventure, romance and super smart bears, this story has it all. I was laughing and cheering and cussing at this book all in one chapter. Such a fun take on dismal times. I cannot wait for the rest of this series to come to audible!
