Summary

The first three action-packed episodes of the best-selling America Falls series:
Hell Week, On the Run, and Cold Comfort

No mazes. No zombies. No games. 

If you think North Korea and Russia are the greatest dangers to the US - think again. After a surprise biological attack, America, the most powerful nation on earth, quickly succumbs, with more than 99.5 percent of the adult population killed. As society unravels and a ground invasion of his country begins, loner Isaac Race must form a connection with a ragtag group of survivors and elude not only the invaders, but other dangers and chaos unleashed in Post-America.

These are the first three episodes of America Falls, a compelling, action-packed story about who we are and who we have to become in order to survive.

Good Easy Listen

I would say that I am veracious reader and listener and get through a few books/ Audio books a week. I have eclectic tastes which range from Jeffrey Archer to Stephen King, my main genres are Fantasy and Sci-fi. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Ok so firstly let me address the elephant in the room the 3 stars doesn't mean this isn't a good book in my opinion it is a good but just not a very good or excellent book and I will be buying the follow on trilogy with my very own hard earned credit. As usual I wont give away spoilers or cover to much of the overall plot. Narration - Adam Barr does a really good job and his range is excellent he is easy to listen to and the characters are easy to differentiate. The reason I didn't give 5 stars was because I felt the English accent on two of the characters were off they seemed to be better placed in a dickens novel that one set in the near future. What I would say in Adam Barr defence there is a reference to him having a clipped accent but in my opinion its a little much. With regard to the story its self its told from the perspective of the main protagonist looking back whilst writing down his story as it is written in this style there is also commentary in some parts adding information which was gained at a later date to the current part of the story. The other thing that this caused for me was a lack of fear or threat for the main character as however dangerous the situation you knew he would be ok. The premise of the story is a very good one and a slightly different take on a post apocalyptic genre I did however feel that this felt like it was for a younger audience late teens maybe. I found it hard to believe at times that the main characters were aged between 12-15 it was a challenge to keep referring to them as Kids as there actions for me appeared to be more adult. I personally felt that the technology used in the book was not as well researched as it could of been and for people experienced or knowing about certain technologies and techniques it left some of the parts boarding on unbelievable. There were a few instances of errors in my opinion when referencing Karate and Kung Fu but again this was only a minor issue. For me this was not a deep game changing book but hey not every book can be that or even needs to be that I've enjoyed the easy listening to be honest and its been a great cleanser and like I started my review with I will be purchasing the next set.

Good storyline.....

The book feels a little 'young' but maybe that was intended? I dont know. It's quite far fetched in places and unrealistic in a 'Karate Kid' kinda way.... no one feels 100% recovered after a gun shot to the abdomen after a short sleep no matter how tough you are... there where a few elements that felt like 'terminator' in episode 3 and although I enjoyed the story I did go check to see if I'd bought a 'teen fiction' book. I mean, I like some teen fiction books so it wasnt all bad, but I did have a few 'ahhh cum'mon!' eye roll moments! The positives were, the kids had real character and their personalities started to show through, although there wasnt any real development or back stories to some and some parts of the book felt they lacked something. The author showed real potential to draw you in and paint a vivid picture of some scenes so you felt part of it all. I mostly enjoyed the narrator but his english accent is a little weird.... we dont all speak with a plum in our mouth and at times the twins sounded like badly acted baddies! likewise the chinese accents were off kilter too but you could kinda follow who was who. Overall I enjoyed the story and would recommend it to a teenager, it has that kind of feel to it, I bit like Horowitz' Alex Rider. Maybe that was the Authors intention, to give it that teenagers POV? The story has me hooked enough to invest in the next 3 episodes so.....🤷‍♀️

Great story very week read

I really enjoyed these books, it was a different slant on the "end of the world" style of books. It was exciting and the characters were believable and engaging. The narrator was very skilled and I would happily listen to him again.

brilliant story

I originally wrote a review on 18/05/2019 but it did appear this is a wonderfully crafted drama about a group of teen and children surviving after the fall of America along with the difficult decisions they have to make the writing and voice acting is perfect I can't wait to relisten.

Interesting Tale

The characters are interesting if older than what the author says. The book wasn't heavy but was intriguing. The plot was resolved at the end of each book but with mysteries left to be resolved. The author doesn't shy from violence it isn't gratuitous. I enjoyed the narration more than I thought I would and will happily pick up any book narrated by him in the future.

frustrating

good story and kept my interest. but the main character makes life way too difficult for himself and gets far too many of his people killed or seriously injured by going so far out of his way to not kill his enemies. usually when someone tries to kill you, more than once, SAYS they're gonna kill you, KILLS your friends, threatens to kill more, is obviously an evil person and deserves to die...... you'd just kill them the first chance you got so they don't kill you or anyone else, again. well this kid just refuses to!! he CONSTANTLY let's people go just so they can come back 10 min later and cause more damage and try to kill him again. then he gets the upper hand and is in a position to end it all, but AGAIN let's the bad guys go! over and over again! towards the end youre basically rooting for the bad guy because the kid basically deserves what he gets.

More for teens

Not a bad book. But if you are a "survivalist" and are knowledgeable even just from hiking/camping it leaves you kind of flat. I think if I was in my teens I would have really liked this.

Pretty good

I am a bit cautious on post-apocalyptic-style books, as many seem to try too hard to be overly detailed on useless information. This series was a good break from that. The only bad part is that the next 3 books aren’t available on audible yet.

Entertaining

If your a fan of the walking dead and the 100 then you will love this book. It has a predictable plot due to the elements being over used within the past couple of years but is still very enjoyable. Personally I could not stop listening and finished within 2 days of starting the book. The only thing I did not care for was that it ends on a drop, not even a clif hanger. There was resolution to current predicaments but no over all wrap up which I find annoying. But I suppose there will be more books and if so I can over look this issue. I received this book for free in return for an unbiased review and I'm very glad that I did. I would definitely recomend this book to all of my friends and family.
