Not in a bad way, mind you.
A pandemic story without zombies is quite refreshing given how inundated the media has been with them as of late.
A practical and unfortunately realistic take on how a pandemic and subsequent collapse of rule of law might play out. The ending might have fallen together a *BIT* too cleanly, but the scenario and motivations for doing so are ripped straight from recent news and debates.
The main character is realistic. He has his flaws, he loses his cool and he makes mistakes. He isn't overpowered by any means and doesn't always make it out of fights without losing blood himself.
My one complaint is that the story has a bit of a stutter in finding its pace starting out, but quickly moves into its own as it progresses.
The narration is solid and I have no complaints. She did extremely well with the reading and perhaps the only negative thing I could say is that her melodic voice doesn't really suit the somber atmosphere of the tale. Instead, I felt like Jake, being read a bedtime story recounting the events rather than experiencing them from Cooper's perspective. That aside, which isn't really her fault, she did a marvelous job.
All in all, definitely worth the listen and a different take on the usual survival story. I'd recommend it to anyone.

The story was well written, perhaps a bit to gun heavy but that is common in this genre. The audio recording was poor and contained many errors. It sounded rushed in the reading and editing. A better performance would have helped this book immensely.
