Publisher's Summary

Jack, a sometimes humorous, sometimes philosophical ex-special operations pilot and soldier is one of the few left to struggle through the desolation left in the aftermath; seeking to survive as a new ferocious species emerges from the rubble, hungry and unrelenting. Will his special forces training be enough? Will he be able to keep his children safe and guide the few survivors through perils that now roam the world they once knew? Or will the hordes that now own the night prevail, forever removing the last of mankind from existence? Humankind was once at the top of the food chain. But that has now changed.

THIS IS MAKING MY BRAIN HURT

Well, numb at least
Reaching down with my right hand, I grasped the tab on the zipper pocket of my Bass Pro duffle bag. I dragged the zipper to my right, opening the pocket. Reaching into the pocket (side remark), I pulled out the Zip Lock Container with the four tabs. (semi-funny side remark to myself) Putting the container in my lap with both hands I undid the four tabs. My mp3 SanDisk player was laying on top of the black co-axel cable with the brass fittings. Taking the player out, I hit the blue button with my right thumb, (side remark). etc...

If you were enthralled with that rendition, than you will love this book. I bought this book, thinking it was about Zombies, even though Audible has not included it among their 15 books in the Zombie section which you have to sneak your way into since, you can't get their through browsing Science Fiction/Fantasy. In the first four hours, I heard two Zombies shuffling around. One was upstairs and another outside a house. I never got to actually see a Zombie. I did get to see some of the carnage, but not the actual taking place of such disasters. After four hours I started skipping through the book and evidently skipped over a horde of Zombies, which I don't think ever reappeared.

I did like the main character. He seems to be a good father and it is cool to have that evident in a Zombie book, if you can call this a zombie book. Most of the story takes place in the United States with this father and his kids. Some of the story takes place in Kuwait, where the mother is stationed with the army.

Sammy Davis Jr. once said, the when he gave a concert, he had to sing Candy Man fairly early, since it was his only hit. It is the same when you write a Zombie book. If you write a book about Zombies, you need to have some zombies fairly early, it is why the reader bought the book. If you want to write a book about a father and his kids, great, but don't call it Chaos, A New World and don't have a macho gravely narrator.

Good story, terribad narration

I decided to try this book after listening to A shrouded world. I love Mark Tufo and enjoyed the collaboration. Let me start by saying that the story is good, it has potential to be a good audiobook. Unfortunately, the narration ruined it for me. The narrator emphasized every other word, it sounded like a professional wrestler was reading.
