As millions struggle to survive in the wasteland that America has become, a young man fights to maintain its founding promise.
Starvation, violence, and death run rampant in the remains of our once-proud country. Federal troops, commissioned to protect the homeland, have turned their guns on the lawless population. Citizens find shelter in government safe zones while ruthless gangs enforce their will outside the camps.
When the military transforms Washington's life-saving food bank into a gun collection center in order to disarm all but the soldiers themselves, riots ensue. Weary of the militaristic government's intent to render the citizens defenseless, America's remaining patriots begin a mass migration out of the camps in search of refuge.
American Apocalypse Wastelands tells of a young man discovering the role he must play to defend himself, others, and his country as everything around him crumbles.

Ok. First off the story isn't bad. I really like the whole apocalypse genre but this book has some problems. The narrator sucks, he reminds me of the band camp chick from American Pie trying to imitate John Wayne. I don't know where that accent comes from but I don't want to go there. Secondly this is not a stand alone book, it is one of a series. If you don't have the first book in the series you are lost. The author never explains what is going on, how things got to be the way they are or how long they have been in the situation they are in. You have no idea who the characters are or anything about them. The worst thing, and that's debatable, about this book is that Audible released it first. Bad move guys.
A couple of good points is that the author is technically accurate. He knows a good bit about the firearms described and I get the feeling he was infantry from the way he describes some of the action. I was impressed that he knew that hiking down hill can be worse than going up, oohrah there devil dog. Another thing in his favor is that the story isn't gun porn, in which the author takes a paragraph to describe the weapon and a sentence for the action. The action itself is good. The hero gets some boo boos once in a while but he seems to walk between the raindrops so to speak and never receives a major wound. Pretty darn lucky for standing out in the open and letting folks shoot at you
The genre is enjoyable
ANYFRICKINBODY!!! This guy shouldn't be a narrator he ought to be a DJ at a nudie bar.
It would have been with another narrator and if Audible had released the first book first
This is one of those that you get when you have an extra credit but it will never be a first choice
This book didn't have a lot of reviews and I was skeptical to purchase, I'm glad I did!! It started off a little different but got going relatively quick, the story line was creative and feasible…I particularly liked how the book portrayed the actions of the government and its response to the given situation, it’s par for their current trajectory. I love an action packed book and this book was filled with it, the main character is one crazy SOB…I loved it. I couldn't put this book down. It had one element towards the end that I’m not sure belonged…but the authors note at the end made it palatable. I do enjoy the books that reflect a crisis and the aftermath created by a controlling government. This book rates as one of my favorites…along side “Patriots” by James Wesley Rawles and “Atlas Shrugged” by Ayn Rand.
