Publisher's Summary

Robert Ralston is an average guy living in one of America's largest cities. He is the perfect definition of an American prepper. When three events in succession trigger a breakdown in society, Robert Ralston has to survive with his wife and two children.
Knowing the general rule that society totally collapses when there is no food or law and order, for three days he does his best to save his family. He makes many mistakes along the way. Although Robert is the perfect definition of a modern day prepper, he finds that much of what he learned about preparing to save himself and his family and to prepare for society's coming collapse wasn't enough!
This is a thriller that is both educational and suspenseful, with nonstop action. It will leave you wanting more, and it is written by one of the best authors of today.

There are worse SHTF books...

1st a compliment... this book is complete on its own and although there is a volume 2 the story is finished and it is by choice if you go on. It is also a very unusual EMP set-up so kudos for creativity and a few of his theories. If this SHTF stuff rocks your boat it's worth the read (my brother liked it). There isn't much swearing or over the top sex. There is a good bit of violence... but a main character with a conscious as he shoots people (unlike "The End" series).This book beats "299 Days" series to pieces but is miles behind "One Second After" or "Jakarta Pandemic."

I went to the authors web-site which actually looks interesting and I will probably go back and to peek at some of his info. He claims to be a ghost writer with top-10 books to his credit. If so, he rushed though this one or failed to use an editor because there are lots of redundancies, inconstancies, areas where I had to suspend my disbelief (and couldn't) and quite a bit of cheese.

The narrator wasn't bad when not doing voices... but those occasional children's voices, accents and place names were pretty bad. I had more issues with the audio editing that had repeated sentences and static filled pauses.

- Jan "Tangential, eclectic, avid listener... favorite book is the one currently in ear."

Poor production

Not sure if it is the narrator or was just poor recording, but it sounded poor compared to other Audible productions.

Story was decent, but the dialog between characters was very poor at times. Author needs to understand what 4 year olds are capable of saying. Same with 12 year olds. The dialog with the kids was terrible overall. Dialog among the adults wasn't much better. BUT the story was interesting and when there was just straight narration - it was well written and descriptive.

As for the narrator himself? He has no business attempting to alter his voice for women and children characters. It was awful. Awful.

Poor choice of narrator.

Sorry to be negative, but these issues REALLY distracted from what was otherwise an interesting story line.
