Where the heck is Kevin Pierce?
Would you listen to Prepper's Crucible Omnibus, Volumes 4-6 again? Why?
No, don't like the Narrator
What did you like best about this story?
How could the performance have been better?
Bring back Kevin Pierce. Why would you change narrators between books?

What disappointed you about Prepper's Crucible Omnibus, Volumes 4-6?
As with Andrews' other books I found myself needing more content. So many complex things were simply stated in few sentences. Dialog was not at all believable or realistic. There were a number of editing mistakes, seemed to be more than the first Omnibus. It was just a disappointing listen overall unfortunately.
Would you be willing to try another book from Bobby Andrews? Why or why not?
Maybe, as long as the narration was done by someone else. I'm still a fan of the genre and Bobby Andrews has some decent ideas, even if presentation can be lacking.
Would you be willing to try another one of Mark Shumka’s performances?
I'm sorry but no, definitely not. Narration does not seem to be Shumka's forte. I'm not even sure I could advise on what to do better; some people have it and some people...well...don't. If there were a book I really wanted to digest but Mark Shumka was narrating it I would either avoid it altogether or pick up the Kindle version.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
It really didn't elicit any emotion whatsoever, this was part of what was missing in this book - spark.
Any additional comments?
I really wanted to like this book. Although the writing was a little less enjoyable than the first Omnibus, the narration made it almost unbearable. Several times I wanted to quit the book but I committed to it so that I could give a complete review. I found that the further the book went the worse it seemed to get, almost like Andrews was getting tired of writing. Major events were never addressed or were quickly glossed over such that they should have been irrelevant. Also the style of the story presentation in the last part of the book, changing to a historical angle, just about caused me to throw in the towel as it simply wrapped things up WAY to conveniently with no meat.
