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.

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.

Narrator Drove me Crazy!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Definitely use a different narrator. The story was like one of those disaster movies where the onslaught of catastrophe's is just relentless. A disconcerting listen. Also, in multiple spots the editing overlaps and the narrator repeats the same couple of lines twice.

If you’ve listened to books by Farrell Kingsley before, how does this one compare?

Have not listened to any of his other books.

What didn’t you like about Jim Donaldson’s performance?

This narrator used a tone and reading style that just drove me crazy. Speeding up when he shouldn't slowing down when he shouldn't, and using voices for different characters that just did not fit. A couple of the voices he used grated on my ears like fingernails on a chalkboard.

Was Nine Meals to Anarchy: The EMP worth the listening time?

Not really. Between the style used by the narrator, and the poor story line, I turned it off with over 2 hours to go. Just couldn't spend anymore time trying to follow it.
