Publisher's Summary

Survival can be a lonely existence...or not. The reality of the situation always comes down to a simple decision: What kind of world do you want to build?
The survivors have come to settle in the mountains of Wyoming, fighting day in and day out to establish a home for themselves in a near-empty world. Things are good at first; scavenging is a workable, short-term solution that seems to be providing all they need.
But they know that it’s only a matter of time before the food runs out. They need to scramble to find a sustainable solution before the clock stops, and for a little handful of people up in the mountains, the odds don’t seem very favorable.
Further south, a new band of people migrates across the map, running on fumes and searching desperately for a place to settle. All around them, as resources run thin, the world grows colder and more violent.
It’s getting worse out there, always getting worse, and it’s starting to look like survival might just depend on how violent they’re willing to get....

This Will Have You Belly Laughing, Crying, and...

This Will Have You Belly Laughing, Crying, and Everywhere In Between

Gibbs. Sweet, sweet Gibbs. You might easily be one of the most enjoyable characters I’ve ever had the chance of listening to. You magnificent son of a… I realize now that I can’t write a review anywhere near where I want to AND still have it postable on anywhere outside of my blog. Audible and Amazon would take the review I want to write down in a heartbeat if I wrote it the way that I wanted to. There’s a warning in the opening of this book and I’ll give a similar one here. If you are offended by cursing, especially creative and often hilarious outbursts by an ex-Marine – this book is NOT for you.

Commune Book 2 had me howling in my car with laughter on numerous occasions. I curse and have no issues with it. But Gibbs made me have a new-found appreciation for cursing in new and unique ways. Seriously, the effort and research that Gayou put into writing a character as ‘colorful’ as Gibbs deserves a standing ovation.

The story in this was darn near perfection. Seriously, Gayou is able to tell about four different stories (that in some worlds would have been split up into four separate books) and he does it darn well. The opening story recounts the start of the Super Fun Time… Explitive Bus. Even the story about how the bus got its name is hilarious and perfect. That story was utterly fascinating and had me wishing my three-hour drive was longer. Jump from that to the scene in Denver (I won’t spoil it, but it was intense and heartfelt in a way that had me in actual tears while listening). Now the group on the bus meets a stranger – this leads into yet another story and more “retelling” through the eyes of interviews and the book of the Commune. I won’t even get into the final two stories because that would ruin the slow build that Gayou has throughout.

Seriously, Gayou has this way of sucking you in to his story by making you laugh your face off – then all of a sudden you’re crying actual tears because something happens – then not a few chapters later you’re not sure what’s going to happen to the gang. And then we go back to laughing and anywhere in between. The number of emotions that Commune Book 2 had me go through should win some sort of award.

And speaking of Awards – R.C. effing Bray deserves one for the telling of this story. Holy, you know what. (Trying not to swear in a review of a book where swearing is nearly a comma is harder than I thought. I feel like a foul-mouthed grandma around her grandkids after stabbing herself with a knitting needle). I loved the first Commune book and I don’t think that I would have ever read it had Bray not narrated it. Now I was prepped and ready for Book 2. I thought for sure it would let me down a little because of how much I loved the first book. The combo of Gayou’s writing style and Bray’s delivery absolutely seals this book for me. Commune Book Two’s narration needs to win some sort of award. Even if it’s the Fun Time Bus Award. I think Bray stepped it up a notch in this story. I don’t know if it was Gayou’s writing or just the passion in the story. This one will be one I don’t forget for a long time.

I was voluntarily provided with a free copy of this book. It has not affected my review in any way. If you enjoyed this review, please vote for it! Every vote helps.

When’s the next book out?

Loved the first book, so couldn’t wait for this one, was a bit worried at first, in the first few chapters but so glad I stuck with it, just got better and better.

Worth listening to for Gibbs' narrative alone!

"Out f'ing standing" as he might say! I am going to have to memorize some of his saltier phrases for future use.

Awesome Marine

Gibbs is the best, I haven't laugh so much for quite a while. Well written and interesting to follow the various characters as they develop. Can't wait for the third book. Keep it up Josh.

Awesome - better than book 1

The marine character is so freaking entertaining & RC Bray brings him to life. He really is my favourite narrator. A great apocalypse novel with humour, grit & a bit of prepper “how to” which I am oddly obsessed with.
