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.

Could not listen to it....

What would have made Holding Their Own: A Story of Survival better?

What a failure. I hear this book has a great storyline but I can not really tell you my opinion. I tried 3 times to endure the first hour of this book but the quality and performance of the narrator sounds like a 3rd grader recorded it on their Hello Kitty cassette deck. I mean it is really THAT bad. A have a friend that is a striving novelist and he has recorded his own audio narration. He deserves an Oscar if this was the baseline.
After about 40 audiobooks through audible I'm going to have to look into the "return" process on this one. I really want to read the book as I loved Rawles' Patriots and One Second After. I guess I'll have to pick up the print version.

Would you be willing to try another one of D. Allen’s performances?

Pretty good story with very BAD delivery

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would not recommend listening to this book. I might recommend reading a paper copy.

What didn’t you like about D. Allen’s performance?

This was the worst book, from a delivery perspective, that I have ever heard. Some chapters sound like they were recorded in a bathroom and were barely understandable. Many unedited mistakes.

Any additional comments?

Way too many sexual references that added nothing to the story.
