Separated by thousands of miles but connected by the same desire, both Devin and Lori will do what is necessary to survive.

I truly admire the narrator's ability to keep a straight face while reading dialogue like: "He's taken me prisoner and has insidious plans to rule the world." The story is a moronic right wing fantasy of evil liberals killing off 90% of the world's population to build a one-world government while shutting up most of the survivors into FEMA death camps. One-dimensional characters behave in preposterous ways to move along a storyline in which very little actually happens. Just dumb.

Ooh, a good book
So there are two tales going on here; the book switches rather rapidly between Devin and Lori but wasn't hard to keep track of things as the characters are kept to a minimal. Both are pretty dumb really, Lori is shielded in the FEMA camp, while Devin hid out for 6 months too terrified to face the changed world. Not dumb like it leaves you screaming at them in your head when they do stupid things, it's more as they are portrayed as naive, weak civilians. But they develop and there are other more talented characters.
There are survivors, raiders, cannibals are a crazy sect as fitting an apocalypse tale. Too bad no zombies :/. Hardly any scavenging or building fortifications. I was impressed by the twists in the story, I wasn't expecting several developments. Good story, I liked it!
Narrator isn't bad, but is challenged with female voices, getting slightly better towards the end. It's that kind of transvestite voice. Too bad for him there are so many female characters! I'd pay a couple of bucks more if audible books had two narrators, one male, one female.

Death would be a welcome release to this dribble
You know that's it's time to pack in when you don't care what happens to the characters.
Plastic characters, badly written. Was looking for light escapism but there are limits to how low I will go. Was about to endure but when I realised that it was a trilogy I lost the will to hang in there. Not sure what the guy who penned the introduction is on about. It is beyond awful. A child could write this. The narration is truly terrible. The female accents were the worst that I have ever had to endure. No woman could sound that annoying. Regret listening to a few hours. Delete, move on, life is too short.

I found the story line really really frustrating and unimaginative, the detail of some of things described is unnecessary (eg the mark grenade or the tactical names of helicopters). It felt like the dialogue was only used to stretch the story out as it was slow and pointless conversations between people that seemed so unintelligible it was painful to listen to (and at times made me angry and I had to skip 30 seconds ahead).
I feel this audio book is really for the dimwitted and naive - people who can't see the obvious story line and can be mesmerised by detail that's just simply not needed.
The narration was good, the narrator made best of his voice using different voices for people, however, all the women seemed to sound very similar, there is a conversation between two women that is very confusing because of this.
All in all, seriously don't bother. Not worth the effort.
