Original and very readable!

I really enjoyed this book, I found it refreshingly original, a unique perspective on the popular post apocalyptic genre, that had me hooked very quickly. I loved Sarah's character and was soon in love with Al & Alice and the quadraceps, I can't wait for the next book, the narration was good. I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

Fast & Furious

Zero Hour definitely delivered, it's refreshing, and unique for the genre. Despite being an Omnibus edition and multi-parts, it was a quick listen and super engaging. The storyline is a gripping, fast-paced, unpredictable, action-packed, thrilling, downright intense ride; the entire time, I was on the very edge of my seat. Wow to James Highfield's narration, his performance is flawless. He captured the animation and the intensity of the scenes. All round, this is a fantastic post-apocalyptic thriller, one I highly recommend. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Inventive and intense take on the AI apocalypse

This is a very different kind of AI post-apocalypse story. It's equal parts action story and intensely intimate character portraits, all told in a highly stylized way that only adds to the tension and suspense. The twists are huge and gratifying. The ideas are big. I found myself reminded of Philip K. Dick's twisty, reality-bending stories while reading this, in the best way possible. I highly recommend this book!

A fast paced thriller!

I love the Audio version of this omnibus edition. The narration is done by James Highfield, and he did a top-notch job!
  I had originally started reading the series as each of the 6 stories were released, but had given up by story 4 or 5 as I had completely lost the thread of the story,  so when the audible omnibus edition came out, I jumped on the chance to reacquaint myself with the characters and story, and finish the book that had started out so well. I'm glad I did!
  Get the omnibus copy so you can get the full impact of Eamon's work!

Third Person Narrative was Really Cool!

This was a short book, but really good. The whole storyline was unusual for me. I’ve listened to many post-apocalyptic books, but this was the first AI one that I have listened to. This is also the first book I’ve ever listened to that used a third person narrative. It was pretty cool to hear a story told as though it was about me. I felt pretty heroic, lol. I highly recommend this book. The narrator was awesome and the storyline was great. It’s a quick listen but well worth it. I received this book for free at my request from Audiobook Boom.

Not for me... not engaging

I tried multiple times to give this audiobook a shot... couldn't even get a full hour into it. Unfortunately the characters aren't relatable, storyline isn't engaging and I got bored with the narration. * This audiobook was provided to me at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review.

What a Point of View!

I was given this free review copy audio-book at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This review is for the audio copy of Zero Hour - A Post-Apocalyptic Thriller: Omnibus Edition by Eamon Ambrose and narrated by James Highfield. You started to listen to this book and you didn’t know what to make of it. How can this story unfold in a manner that I can understand, you thought to yourself? You continue on into the story and the next thing you knew you were hooked! Definitely a first for me, listening to a story told in the second person. Was a bit quirky at first and I had to get used to it. But I liked the story, how it was told and how it was narrated very much. It was as very interesting and different. I would listen to a sequel or a continuation of the story.

great, unique story (to me)

The story is an interesting take on the post-apocolypse genre. The big (yet VERY forshadowed) twist comes at the very beginning, and it sets the stage for a unique story The book is written from a first person perspective, so take that as you will. Not sure if it's just my ear, but the narrator seemed to have trouble differentiating several of the voices as well. free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

OK

I received a free copy of this audio book at my own request and voluntarily leave this honest review. It is an OK read/listen but Unfortunately it didn't fire my imagination. Nothing wrong with it.
