In the chaos of the world outside, Lee is pursued by a new threat: someone who will stop at nothing to get what he has.

Great Listen But Frustrating Character

If you could sum up The Remaining: Aftermath in three words, what would they be?


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Let me say right off the bat, this is a good book and worth the listen. The writing is crisp and dialogue is well done....

But, I have a very hard time believing in the main character. A highly trained soldier who is supposed to bring people together after the plague. But he makes very poor decisions for someone who is supposed to be giving survivors what they need to re-create society. I found myself constantly saying to myself "why would he do THAT?"

For example:
1. (book 1) OK. I saved this young kid who is traumatized and unstable. Should I should leave him in my bunker/house playing video games, promise to be back in a few hours and go rescue some people that may or may not be on the roof of their house, on a street that I'm guessing they live on, several miles away. Yes, you should. I mean, what's the worst that could happen?

2. So-and-so suddenly wants to help you save the camp, despite being weak and ineffective, never used a gun, has nothing to add to the mission and could be more useful back at camp? "Sure come along. After all, what's the worst that could happen?"

3. So-and-so asks you to check on her sister in a town that something bad happened in. "Sure I will do that, no matter what. Because you were nice to me, despite my having spent all of two minutes with you. I mean, really, what's the worst that could happen?"

3. I got supplies that will save the entire camp and give us a leg-up on the (known) bad guys. We'll be back to camp in an hour or two. Yay! "But first, I'll just leave them lightly guarded in an unknown town, in a world where people are dying left and right, from infected hordes and bad guys, and go wandering in search of some person that I've never seen, couldn't recognize and is probably dead. What's the worst that could happen?

It got frustrating.

Nevertheless, I got book three. So although the main character is unbelievable (to me at least) he is strong and likeable. The secondary characters are mostly awesome. Other reviewers have pointed out that the author likes his men manly and his womenfolk mostly weak and playing a strictly supporting role - you know, cooking, cleaning and nursing. While it didn't really alter my enjoyment it was a noticeable story flaw. Not once did a woman/girl pick up a gun and actually fight.

Still let me say it one more time: Good book. Worth the listen.
The narrator is top notch.

What about Christian Rummel’s performance did you like?

He does a great job of subtly changing his tone/accent/cadence for each character to make it easy to follow along with who is speaking. He truly made this more enjoyable.

A good listen

“The Remaining: Aftermath” picks up and completes the story that “The Remaining” left hanging. It does a good job of mixing action and plot development and also closes the loop on the story from the first book and doesn't leave any big cliffhangers. The story is good and the characters are fun, and while not quite zombies the infected are a good substitute for someone who’s looking for a more realistic horror.

Mr Runnel does a great job with the story and really brings the story to life!

Dearie, dearie me. I really tried with this series and I can't fault the narration, it's terrific but the books just aren't a patch on the Arisen series. If you're the sort of person who thinks that it's WHITE MEN who're going to save us in the event of an apocalypse (which you may even consider to be imminent) then you might let the cardboard characters and jingoistic sentiments pass and quite enjoy the narration. If however you believe that the world is basically a good place only jeopardised by WHITE MEN then you'll probably notice how awful this series is...even within the whole 'white men' as saviour genre.

a great take on the post apocalyptic zombie thing

Exciting and well paced with good character developement. The variation on the typical zombie thing is refreshing and unpredictable. A great light story and worthy part 2
