Light read, fun

What did you like best about Uprising USA? What did you like least?

This is one of those books that you like but you don't know why and you feel a little dirty admitting this fact yourself. This is not hardcore tactical gun porn this is late night Cinemax soft core gun porn. It is clear the main character is based off of the authors wet dream of how he would use his tactical genius and unmatched combat skills to save the world as only he has the capability to do.

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

Here is the entire book in generic terms.

People flock to him for advice, he suggest things and they just happen. Set up defenses here, here and here...ok now we have a free zone base of operations and even though nearly every city, town, military base has been over run this is safe for the rest of the book. Make the classic run into a big city and save some helpless family members. While there pick up some guns and military vehicles. Meet up with other gun nuts from an online forum. Be made unwilling leader of the region and have military put under command. Bring in funny medieval guy. Rescue hot chicks who magically are tactical savants and sassy sexpots that want you. Grudgingly allow them to be your security detail. Go off on pointless missions alone with said sexpots. Stop nefarious international and government plots with little or no planning or intelligence. Introduce supernatural element as it is clear no normal person or agency is a match for this god among men.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narrator was OK. The gaps between chapters were long enough that it had me thinking the app had locked up.

Some people will rant about his pronunciation of certain military or weapons based words or phrases but I am convinced that it was done on purpose. I would bet that anyone who gets that upset about such things will get put on a watch list and get a visit from the evil black helicopters

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Only if Danny McBride played Uncle Musket

Any additional comments?

The author is either sponsored by or masturbates with SilpStream gun lube as it comes up constantly

After everything I mentioned above I liked this damn book and I hate myself because of this

Great zombie action

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It was awesome, even if the narrator isn't a gun/knife guy and isn't sure how to pronounce ka-bar or hornady. An awesome story though and it kept me involved for 13 hours straight, that's hard to do with my "gun dudes" like attention span. But I digress, this follows the Ogre from the day it happens until he thoroughly turns the tides against the zombie hordes and is elected president. Its not the normal zombie horror story but its action packed and fun to listen to.

What did you like best about this story?

I'm a bit of a gun/knife whore so this got me all worked up, and reminded me that I still need a Becker Necker knife.
