I am trying to stay with this series because I really like the concept and I liked the first book. But though it was a vast improvement over the second book in the series, there are some things that he can leave out. Please, PLEASE stop comparing the main character and his "group" to military contractors!! It is beyond annoying. I'm so sick of hearing about how great they look. At least twenty minutes of listening time seem total seem to be devoted to just that!!! And how can he say someone is a hero/gunman because they have been to the range and "are wearing cool gear?" Really?? All the guy has done is just that, drive around escorting people, stand duty, and flash his concealed carry permit like it was a badge and show his weapon! It made me rather embarrassed for both the character and the writer. He could do better- I can tell because of the first book. Also, a Marine SNCO would never leave part of his Marines behind like that- not with the excuse of not knowing where their loyalties lay. He would know. We know our Marines. Especially when you work in that type of special duty environment. There were other mistakes as well but overall the concept is sound though again the politics are so one-sided that it makes you want to throw up a little in your mouth every time he goes on a political rant because I wouldn't trust either party with my trash, much less rebuilding the United States. When the country finally does get to this point, they did it together. But I am sure that the political parties will try to take power in each state and start war on each other if they could.

What disappointed you about The Community?
I was excited to listen to this series because it takes place in my home state, but I just couldn't take the biases of the author along with the story. The character in the book comes off pompous and arrogant. I got to book three thinking it would get better. Thank goodness Audible let me return the last two books.
Has The Community turned you off from other books in this genre?
Did Kevin Pierce do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
