Publisher's Summary

Neal managed to survive the initial weeks after an EMP decimated the grid and all critical infrastructures. Using his cunning, skills, and mindset, he navigated the harsh new landscape. Life became harder when the weeks turned to months but still he survived. As he settled into his new normal, complacency set in with it. At first everything was fine, but then the deadly realities came to his doorstep. When tragedy struck all he wanted to do was give up, but a promise he had made kept him going, barely. He was a man without a home, a purpose, and, more importantly, hope. That changed one day along a desolate highway in the desert. There he'd discover a new reason for living.

Hit and miss

I have to admit I knew the book length when I bought it. Still, why no more story then what we get? I obviously like it since I want more. The character development is excellent. A reader makes an informed decision about liking or hating the people in this book.

This is about average people and how they react to an apocalypse. They make a lot of mistakes - some that are fatal. The language is rough compared to other works by these authors.

Without a spoiler, the FEMA/military actions are bizarre. I expect an explanation in a future book.

Now the bad. The narrator seems to be immune to periods. Why waste time on breathing between sentences? Really, can't the producer hear the problems? How about some pace and inflection? It is tough to keep listening.

This is a good story and worth the time. But perhaps it is better in this case to go with the printed version.

cant get worse

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I purchased this book because I have listened to all of the Going Home Series from A. American. However, I this he only lent his name to this book and had nothing to do with its writing. I normally don't write reviews but this book is so bad I had to say something. There not a single good thing I can say about this book.....

decent but not as good as usual

story lacked action and did not have me on the edge of my seat. compared to both authors usual books this one was tame and not their best. nothing terrible happened with little emotive connection. bit disappointed.
