Would you consider the audio edition of The McClane Apocalypse, Book 1 to be better than the print version?
What did you like best about this story?
How did the narrator detract from the book?
lt seemed the narrator was reading the story for the first time, without having prereading of the story. Her disjointed reading caused me to stop enjoying the story, many times. This should be re-recorded, with someone who has at least read it a couple of times before putting to tape.

I am very torn on my feelings about this book. Let's start with the good. The story is told from multiple points of you and gives you an Ray of subplots to follow in the whole story. It is situated on a farm in Tennessee and has a nice homey five. That's where the good ends.
The narration is flat. There is nothing worse than reading a book with no voice characteristics. It was also was short and clipped. And I felt like there was no emotion. Of course that can be contributed to the book itself as well. The story had a lot of potential but it just missed the important details. That's great that the author put in medical and military terminology. But that's all it had. I felt no emotion no attachment to the characters. I felt like it was right there just to beyond my grasp.
As I've said, the book is a good story. Great foundation and raw material just poorly put together. Because of this I was planning on getting the second book anyway to continue the story. It's not on Audible. I'm the type of person that has a 2 Hour commute every day for work. I don't get to finish the story unless I want to sit at home and read it. Therefore I will never figure out how the story ends.

I am so disappointed, I am actually sad! The premise of the book was so great. But the delivery killed it. The audio-book version narration is horrendous. I do not know if it would've been better as a book on in's own... but from what I was able to hear in the narration the presentation of the story overall is lacking greatly. I waned to care for the characters as many of them are so good! So many plot twists are engaging, but die on arrival. I planned to go and see what the rest of the series is like, but to be honest after reading book one, I don't think I will suffer through the other 4 in the series. So, proceed at your own risk.

I really enjoyed the story which was well written and really descriptive. The characters were believable and the plot flowed well. My only issue, and I'm afraid it's a big one, is the narrator. It was like listening to a child reading from a book, which may have been ok if it only had 20 pages but not a book of this length.
