Publisher's Summary

This first book of the Holding Their Own series, A Story of Survival, is set in the year 2015, when the world is burdened by the second Great Depression. The United States, already weakened by internal strife, becomes the target of an international terror plot. A series of attacks results in thousands of casualties and disables the country's core infrastructure. The combination of economic hardship and the staggering blow of the terror attacks results in a collapse of the government.
This is a realistic story of how an average, middle class couple survives the cascading events brought on by international politics, high tech military actions and the eventual downfall of society. All of their survival skills are tested during the action packed expedition in a world that resembles the American West of 200 years past.

Worst Narrator Ever!!!

What disappointed you about Holding Their Own: A Story of Survival?

Nothing, the narrator was so bad I did finish the book.


Would you ever listen to anything by Joe Nobody again?

Not if the same narrator was used.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

He can't read, it was painful to listen to. I should have listened to a sample, my bad.


Any additional comments?

I've never written a reveiw before but this narrator was so bad I just had to. Sorry Mr Nobody.

Who the heck produced this thing?????

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The story itself was moderately compelling but the production and narration of this book were just dreadful. I listen to audiobooks pretty much non-stop, and I can say with complete honesty that this was by far the worst narration job to which I have ever listened. It had me wincing on a fairly regular basis. Seemed that any word over two syllables was just more than the poor guy could handle. Please Joe, in future, get a "Somebody" to narrate your books!

I have never felt the need to write such a negative review before, but this book has forced me too.


Would you recommend Holding Their Own: A Story of Survival to your friends? Why or why not?

No. Too painful to listen to.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

In every conceivable way.
