A well researched and presented scenario. Unfortunately, the author injects it with his fantasies of resurrecting the "greatest generation" to fight under him in civil war 2. While the survival strategy as a community was a refreshing aspect. It stretched belief when it didn't completely disintegrate as soon as children began starving to death. A sense of community, morals, and social duty doesn't win against parental desperation and survival instinct. While the story is plenty bleak it seems unbelievably idealistic at times.
Great storyline, narrator does the work justice, but the ending is just too neat of a package. Worth the investment of time to finish.
one of very few books I haven't finished. Boring, slow pace, predictable, pathetic. One example - people realized that there might be problems w/ the food in the fridge a DAY after!
I love the narrator and this is the second time I've listened to this book. It would be a horrible thing to have to live with if it became a reality.
The narration of the book, with voice acting appropriate to each character was a great listen. Some of the more emotional portions were gripping in the extreme, putting you in touch with the turmoil experienced by the characters.
