Publisher's Summary

Joe doesn't care about politics, or what happened. The grid is down, and every day is a struggle to survive. He just knows his world went to Hell when the EMPs ended life as he knew it. Joe scrambled to hide from all of the craziness, but kept his sanity, and improved his lot in life by reading some witty survival notes that his dead grandma had left him. She'd been a prepper all her life, and she had been close to Joe.

Joe grows and learns, but can he survive? 

Listen to American Apocalypse Box Set, which includes books one through four of this survival series, to find out how a regular guy survives in a post-apocalyptic world.

Great series

I saw many reviews belittling the fact that the stories were all about “women seeking men” and how sexist it is. Well, the truth is hard to swallow and it is likely going to be the case where women will be doing whatever they can to survive. The unfortunate fact In this series is that the PNW is full of liberals who do not have the ability nor the desire for personal protection. It’s not sexist, it’s fact. This is a great story.

Disregard bad reviews.

Idk why this has so many negative reviews tells a good story nothing overly crazy, and has a good story line. I listen to a lot of post apocalyptic books do to working long hours, this is far from bad when compared to some of the other available options.

Struggled with this one!

As usual Kevin Pierce is amazing! The story, which could have actually been very interesting, was lacking so much detail. The characters were clingy needy and dove in and out of relationships without any build up to it. Im talking every single character gave me pause to thing WTF. It was almost almost creepy. I struggled a little by the end of book 1, that ended abruptly and I got thrown into book 2 and continued hoping it would get better. It was way worse, I really wanted to know how it would turn out but decided I was calling it quits after book 2 because I was constantly shaking my head saying WTF way too much lol

One Of The Absolute Best

Kevin Pierce does his usual stellar job of narrating this 4 book box set. This is a story of Islamic terrorism and North Korean EMP blasts in the US. It's the forging of a hero from a car mechanic named Joe, who never prepped, but did know how to hunt, fish and trap game. It's the story of his fiesty prepper Grandma who has left him land and letters to guide him. How Joe meets his wife, gains a family and Community as he learns how to live in the new version of his country, now without modern conveniences. The women in his life are truly warriors. Well rounded character development and Prepper tips. Excellent Read!! Now on to "Cole's Saga!"

Appalling

A mediocre book made excruciating by the narrator. Be worse and spend your credit on something else.

Box set

For a box series, this was one of the best I’ve listened to. I really enjoyed the letters from G-ma in the female voice and her whit.
The narrator is by far my favorite. I love listening to him. He seems to pick the stories that that really mean something or have depth like this one.

a really good story involving really good people

Kevin Pierce is by far my favorite narrator ever. His voice always adds to the story it seems. I was surprised by the authors talents and his ability to make most of this story believable to a common "Joe" like me. Good Job! looking forward to Cole's Saga. Grandma was awesome!

Great series

really enjoyed this series. we'll written, and I really like the narrator, he narrarated a couple other series I've listened to. Grandma's letters were great, always looked fwd to them. The only thing I didn't like was it seemed rushed towards the end, and skipped forward too many years. It seemed like the author was got tired of writing and just wanted the story to end. Overall though, it was good.

Repative and single minded

This book is all about sex and rape. In atleast every chapter someone is being raped or is accusing someone of rape. All the villains are rapist or child molestors and the only good person has 3 different girlfriends in the first 3 chapters.

Now I'm all up for a good story with a balance of ramoace or sex scenes, sadly the author is either sick minded or has been a victim as this is just to much. After what must the 300th use of the word rape I have now deleted the book.

A refreshing storyline (Books 1-4)

Have read a lot of these types of stories but I must admit I really enjoyed this one. The story is about normal people and how they react to the world going to sh*t. I can relate to the characters and this made it easier to get involved in the story.

The characters are portrayed as lower to middle class. It was refreshing to see how they reacted when there were no bathrooms. Giggled when they found toilet paper. The situation they found theirselves in and how they react to it was interesting.

The narrators did a fantastic job with all the accents. Got to admit my favorite was Grandma. She is a real firecracker.

Well worth the read. 5*****

Oh dear, a manifesto for American Republicans

I guess this book is aimed at the sort of folk who are probably banged up in prison after last year's attack on the American Capitol Building. It has all the villains of the American right - FEMA (they're really slave traders who hold slave auctions), the liberals who wanted gun control, the management class, hell they're elitists who'd sell the good ole rednecks out for thirteen pieces of silver.

Joking aside this is an interesting insight into the survivalist movement, their motives, fears, and expectations. To live in a constant state of hypervigilance like this cannot do their health any good at all what with the deleterious effect it must have on their amygdalas squeezing out all that testerone.
