Painfully Amateurish

Don't waste money on this like I did. It features overwrought writing and a laughable plot that has a secret Chinese-Israeli alliance launching a surprise nuclear attack on the US -- targeting three warheads for Pittsburgh! -- and a "nuclear cloud" that sends temperatures plummeting to 50 degrees below zero (but only for a few days!)

Not what I expected - painfully slow

The story is painfully slow and the narration is hurried, dispassionate and distracting.

I enjoy fictional apocalyptic/survival stories but I couldn't get past the first hour of this one. I had high hopes and made the all too common mistake of judging a book by its cover, which initially intrigued me. The synopsis was intriguing as well. I can usually gut through at least the first half of stories that seem slow-to-start but this one dragged painfully in my opinion. To be fair, I only listened to the first hour of this book.

The story was extremely slow for my taste. I appreciate that the author of the book wanted to narrator the audiobook version but her pace was hurried and her voice and tone conveyed no passion for her own story.

It is easy to be critical of books and I always feel bad giving bad feedback when I myself dare not even write. I read/listen a lot but writing stories like this and putting yourself out there takes guts. For that I commend the author's effort. I am sorry to say, however, this one was a bust for me.
