Idiots in an apocalypse

I used a credit for the box set, so I suffered through the listen.

It starts off as regular people trapped in bad situations in an apocalypse, who in any other story would be the first people to die and only survive through pure luck and chance. They have no skills and make poor choices throughout, but always just happen to sneak by. I almost believe the author received a kickback from Glock, because almost all pistols used or are described as either a Glock or just a pistol, the author also doesn't have much firearm knowledge when they describe a pistol as clicking on empty when the trigger is pulled rather then it locking open.

The characters always say they need to be armed and prepared, yet every opportunity they have to collect weapons from downed enemies or stock supplies, they ignore or something happens. From there the further books get even worse, with one unbelievable misadventure leading to another, with them just squeaking by through luck. It evolves into a bad crime drama with the apocalypse just being the background of why their enemies can get away with more because the police are busy elsewhere.

If you are looking for true apocalypse survival stories, this isn't it.

Not really a apocalypse book

It's just one long story of running, fighting and escape.. No rebuilding, managing, etc..

repetitive

the story was just one weird fight after another. the author really needs to use a thesaurus. three same words and phrases were used over and over and over. if you want to see an example, listen to how many times the word "peer" was used.

Wasted credit.

Struggled painfully to listen. Only enjoyed the beginning. After the cabin burnt, the story changed into a type of "Thug" life monotonous drool pit. Think of Charlie Brown's parents. Found myself thinking over and over..."I don't care".

UGH!

If you're a fan of the words piece and ether, then you'll love this book. The author is lazy and writes one of the most predictable series I've ever read. He appears to have done no research into weapons, survival, or what happens to a person in a fight. This guy may be a decent writer of instruction manuals for dishwashers but he can't write a coherent story. Don't waste your money or credits. I got duped...don't be like me. Update 3/31/2022 I was wrong. the series actually got worse! It's almost like I HAD to listen to see how much worse it could get. Did I say predictable? Good grief! It's like you're writing an eleventh grade report and trying to come up with as many useless words as possible! And add the word "heater" to over used drivel. As in "You coppers ain't gettin' me today. I got my heater!" (say it in your best James Cagney voice) This guy needs to grace the world with no more stories. Please go away! Audible...give me my credits back...you've been bad!

Not great

I had high hopes from the description of the story but am sorely disappointed. The story though detailed is excruciatingly slow and the verbage "Glock", "Click", ect. are so annoying. It's the "apocalypse" and you have some land war feud happening still. Thugs taking over. A stalker that won't give up. And people who are so incredibly dumb. Where's the good characters that know what they're doing and don't become victims every encounter.

Good possibilities but silly plot & bad delivery

I had a difficult time finishing this series. The plot involving Sara was very implausible, outlandish and down right ridiculous. Also, the constant " I am woman, hear me roar" episodes grated on my nerves badly. I mean, I enjoy strong characters no matter their gender, but this was over the top and very distracting. Besides the first three books being sponsored by Glock, the neverending bad decisions by all the main characters also made it hard to keep listening.

Repeat

This author needs to buy a thesaurus. Constant repeat of discriptive words was irritating. Compounded by the lack of research on items used in the book just added to it.

Really wanted to like this but...

I used a credit for this story - and now...I'll never get it back. I really like this genre but over 10hrs in and I just couldn't make myself like this. I purchased the series because of the length and because it seemed to have OK reviews and a decent story - plane goes down in the wilderness, man miraculously survives and has to fight his way back home, there's dogs... I felt as if I was listening to a creative writing assignment where the students were asked to submit 30hrs of writing but when they were done, they realized they only had 5 so they grabbed a thesaurus and filled in the other 25hrs "...his head throbbed and his eyes ached because of the throbbing in his head. Stars danced before his eyes as the ache in his head grew steadily without ceasing. The light caused him to squint because his eyes ached and added to the dull throbbing in his head so that he had to turn his head and shut his aching eyes..."

The narrator goes through great pains to try to breathe some emotion into the story but sounds as though the only emotions she knows is terror and sarcasm.

If the writer's goal was "real time" play by play - well done, sir! It's like listening to my kid recap a 10 min YouTube video over the next 45 mins. Except this one isn't done in 45 minutes.

Promising but disappointing in the end

Started well and looked promising. The plot was all over the place with no explanations as to why some poor victim of a horrendous crime was sought after by a bloody army of bad guys and half the countries Police force who were as bent as a 9 bob note. Another writer who includes a dog that could pass an A level in English and military strategy, Bad guys who are Fearless of pursuing fully armed individuals in black places. And the of course there was Spencer, the incredible rubber industructable man, half Special Force's half pervert, I mean most authors get away with one nick of time rescue but this guy should be in the Olympics for it. I fear it became repetitive predictive and unfulfilled, there was an immense amount of routine detail such as floors creaking doors squeaking guns put out of reach, but sadly, details on the important stuff such as who the hell was Mr Big and why were a load of hoods doing his every bidding, in the criminal fraternity, the Armed Robber is King but the child molester (nonce) is below the bottom of the pile I fear they would have taken his money and cut his throat at the same time. No, as my old History Teacher used to say 'needs more work'

flat, repetitive and a nonsense of a story line

the reason I bought the book(s) was the length. the reason I slogged through it after realizing it was going to be a long and tough ride very early on: I couldn't believe it was possible to repeat the same dribble in all 5 books. characters are completely one dimensional. descriptions are thrown in everywhere without ever bringing the story forward or causing some excitement to build.

Regularly poor choice of words

We have just been told the muscle car was a stick shift, a few minutes later Sarah puts it in drive!
They are regularly ‘pumping’ the break (you can only pump a break if it is faulty). She ‘worked’ the clutch, she ‘worked’ the steering wheel. You steer, or you press the clutch you don’t work it.
She ‘palmed’ her wound, I wouldn’t ‘palm ‘ a wound I would carefully check it out.
She ‘thumbed’ the switch. You don’t thumb a switch you press it.
The story was good, I enjoyed listening to it but it was annoying with the constant poor choice of words. If you know nothing about what you are writing about then at least get someone to evaluate it before publishing it.

For teens?

I got the 3 books in a bundle thinking Deal! But I really struggled through the story as every situation the characters got themselves into turned into a disaster. If the world is collapsing into lawlessness, shoot first and ask questions later and you’d think never splitting up would be common sense. Very frustrating to listen too!

Clichéd Junk

Barely competent writer with narrator not much better.
Keeps using the same hackneyed phrases over and over. Was so annoying.

And try to use devoid of instead of void of, they have slight different meanings.
