Publisher's Summary

New, four-books-in-one! Post-apocalyptic action! The Day America Died! trilogy plus book four - The Final Ending - all four books in the series in one audiobook!

A nuclear EMP attack would shove the USA back 150 years. Death, chaos, and lawlessness would prevail....

Zack Johnson is no hero, but he does have some valuable prepper skills to help him survive. There is nothing like a nuclear apocalypse to help a man grow up and become a hero as he helps his family and friends survive. He is 2,000 miles from home; the grid and all modern transportation have failed. The country is degenerating into violence and dog-eat-dog scenarios. People are killing their neighbors for a scrap of moldy bread or a sip of water.

Zack has to get back to Kentucky to find his daughter so he can take her to the safety of his farm. The Department of Homeland Security is forcing people into relocation camps for their own good. Can Zack save his daughter and help his friends survive the apocalypse?

YA apocalypse

Definitely young male apocalypse. Had to role my eyes at some of the juvenile ideology. Was worried it might end up with the harem like Blue Plague, but it did not so I kept listening. I think I have listened to almost all the best zombie and emp audio books so not much left. Definitely easy to listen while driving or spreadsheeting. I’m glad I spent one ctredit for all three

Ok series

Not the best story. It’s ok and since I got the bundle I don’t feel like I wasted a credit. If I started with one book I would’ve returned it. The plot is ok. There’s some difficult things for me in understanding the timeline. Like gangs sprinting up and taking over within days of the power going out. The narrator was ok. I blame some of my criticism on how the editing was done as sometimes there’s no enough of a pause between conversations and narrative. Maybe it’s meant for YA audiences. If you’re looking for a story after the collapse this is one. But an Ok at best story.

Enjoyable

I want to start by saying I enjoyed the characters involved, they experienced realistic hardships and fears. The experiences the characters were involved in where a little too rapid fire without full conclusions, left me wondering what was the outcome of different characters and situations. “I’m sorry for the beat around the bush”
I’m trying to give a fair review without giving away spoilers of this
entertaining series for anyone. In the future I would recommend more decisive conclusions to “what happened, and less guessing to the outcome”
Overall, this series was enjoyable, and I would recommend.

The end of the world as imagined by a 16 yo boy

This book is a terrible, cliche ridden disaster. The tone is set early on when the main protagonist celebrates his friend taking a dump inside the car of his ex-wife's new man, and it doesn't improve from there. There's even a van full of hippies on their way to a Grateful Dead concert for goodness' sake!

The world as pictured by AJ Newman is neatly divided into useless sheeple who sit down and die at the earliest setback, evil men ready to rape every woman and steal the last mouldy crust of bread out of their neighbours mouths, and the resourceful prepared who have all the weapons and know-how to survive. Of course the hero is in the latter category and not two days into events has sourced himself transport and an admiring fanclub ready to get their knickers off. He manfully resists their temptations (in spite of being a reformed whoremonger) while working his way across the land, helping the simple villagers mend their cars and find food and resources.. What a guy!

Having grown up in an area where natural disasters are fairly common and it's not unusual for people to be cut off from help, food, electricity or the law for days if not weeks, it doesn't seem realistic to me that everything would go to hell in a handbasket within a day of an EMP attack. People naturally band together in a crisis, help each other out and share resources. They are not prone to turning on each other like a pack of rabid jackals at the least provocation as this book tried to repeatedly hammer home.

Really disappointing. Glad I only paid one credit and will likely avoid anything else by this author.
