Codes and Descriptions

Great story but why all of the long codes for Guns, aircraft, etc
That's BORING.

Very disappointing

I absolutely love the post apocalyptic genre and have listened to so many wonderful books. Some of my favourite authors are Joshua Gayou, Kyla Stone, Devon C Ford, Sarah Lyons Fleming and Christopher Artinian.
I decided to use a credit on this box set as it seemed like good value. Sadly I just can’t get into it. I’ve listened to book one. It’s disjointed and confusing and jumps around way too much. There were too many characters introduced in the first book and I lost track of who they were. I ended up totally confused and found it very hard to focus on the book. The other issue is the narrator. He sounds like Kermit the Frog. I’ve played bits of the book to my husband or sister and it made them laugh and they agreed that the narrators voice would be way too off putting.

No, Just No.

I hate giving bad reviews, but I am in this case. I tried to push through and ignore the problems in story and performance but finally had to turn it off. Nothing made since. Going to ask for money back.

Awful narrator

The story line is okay, sitting here under lock-down for Covid-19..... but the narrator is terrible. If I wasn't so bored, I would give up on this book because of the awful narration.
Update: Worst book I have ever listened to on EVERY level. Terrible writing, terrible narration. YUCK, what a waste of money.

.357 Sig not magnum

ok so I'm a gun guy and maybe I know more than most but obliviously the authors don't have a clue about guns. it's not a Glock 31 .357 magnum... it is chambered in .357 sig and people just dont go flying when hit by a bullet, no matter what size the projectile is that's just someone who doesn't have a clue about guns that watches too many movies from the 90's. Over all the story is solid but way too far fetched for me. I barely made it through the long drawn out gun battles where people seem to shoot a ton but never hit anything. By the way even the smallest bullet will penetrate car doors and couches. There is a difference between cover and concealment.

Monotone

Every time I played this book my mind would shoot into a daydream or fall asleep. I don’t know if it’s because of the story or the narrator... very difficult to pay attention to this book!

Couldn't finish

Between the bad narration and just totally unbelievable parts of the story, I just could not finish. Made it into book 5 and just didn't care anymore. SPOILER, Worst part for me is there is no way a group of preppers and bunch of steel workers are going to follow a crazy Russian. Just would not happen.

narrator ruined a good story

this narrator made everyone sound like a whining Nellie Olsen, from Little House On the Prairie. For the first time in my life, I could not finish a book I started.

Everyone from badass bikers to seasoned military elite, were depicted like whiny little girls.

I think the story may have been good, but I just couldn't tell.

Disappointed

the story was decent but the narrator literally ruined the story. his inflections were terrible and he, in no way, captured the personalities of the individual characters. I will be staying away from books read by this narrator.

A Good Series

The book is good. It had some slow places and a few that were quick to jump to other places. The overall is its a good series, totally worth the listening time and the narrator did a great job.
Way to Guys.

Story was lacking in a lot of ways! Really missed the mark & made the military look stupid!

So for 98ish % of the US being killed off in a matter of moments it seems a bit strange that these people have such a hard time finding food, fuel and working cars during a story that’s is only a few months after it happens? Unless I missed that this virus mucked up the gas and spoiled all the canned food in all the stores and made every car stop working.

And for the military personnel! They don’t said a lot of that nonsense during battle. The Sergeant talking to the Colone that way WOULD NEVER HAPPEN WITH THAT SSgt get his ass handed to him! And none of them that lived there all of a sudden forgot that very base base a Shit ton food at the Commissary and the BX/PX as well as huge and I mean HUGE fuel depots! As well as state of the art RADIOS THAT WORK FOR MILES AND MILES! Yet every time they go out they never think to bring one to radio in for help or updates. Nope that forget all training and drive right up to with tunnel vision and get shot or captured. Then when they have a shot out they seem miss at point blank range. Any way the book had a great idea but missed the mark by not being realistic and focusing to much on nonstop action and not enough on what the human body could take. Most them this happen in 2 months and they would have all died of emotional and physical Exhaustion due to being chased by EVERYONE ALIVE!
Last the Narrator just didn’t do it. His monotone voice one part the his yelling squeaky voice was very hard to lesson to I don’t think I would have bought the second book had I not gotten the box set!
