What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Less detail regarding the area................ less detail in general.
What do you think your next listen will be?
How did the narrator detract from the book?
He makes the book even more boring.............. he shows very little emotion perhaps he is a Android.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Storm Before the Storm: A Novel of Preparedness and Survival?
As I said earlier less detail on the area it is very boring.
Any additional comments?

Ok so, sticking to my usual review style here is what I think of the book so far after going about half way.
Joe Russell: New author to me, he has a smooth writing style that tends to blend the scenes and characters smoothly. I haven't done research to see how closely related Russell is to a "prepping lifestyle" but his points seem accurate. His story is easy to follow, I was able to do chores while listening and never had to rewind to catch something it was all clearly thought out grammatically and with correctly placed verbiage. So that made me happy.
Kevin Pierce: Wow...So, let me tell you how impressed I am with this man's voice. I requested a chance to review this book based solely on wanting to hear more depth and range of Pierce's narration talents; and was not disappointed. Pierce is not a man of frilly accents, nor does he worry much about high falsetto female voices. Honestly, it makes me feel like I'm out camping, listening to a story around the campfire. After listening to a couple hours I realized I knew the voice and have read other works strarring Pierce, such as "Good Fences" and "The SHTF series" and many many others. Really this man is a dynamite vocal talent, I am sorry it took me this long to realize it.
Plot: This book so far seems to play along the lines of most PAPOC stuff; characters right before something happens, oh shit something happened, characters post.... something happening. makes sense though stick with what works. However in this beginning the main character has a Tarantino style flashback to a semi-traumatic episode that helps explain why he's such a badass and can run the plot forward. As usual our main character is a rough and tumble object of masculine bravado, and is accompanied by his retinue of misadventures. All in all so far there has been some good whit, and solid character development I'm looking forward to the second half. more to come soon...
