I assume the narrator is a decent fellow. However, he was a poor choice for the narration of this book. Odd pauses during ... reading aside, it's his voice that gets in the way of making this an enjoyable read. Why? Every character sounds like an 80 year old man. Every one. It is impossible sometimes to tell one character from another. Listening just makes me think this book is a sequel to Grumpy Old Men: "Grumpy Old Men: The Grumpy Apocalypse". So, read this one and pass on the audio book format.
Loved this book. Lots of helpful tips on how to be prepared. Inspiring story with a seasoned narrator.
I bought this audiobook on cd at a truck stop late one night. I listened to it more than once, buying a cd player to listen to at work when I wasn't driving. When I started an Audible account, this was my first purchase. My wife doesn't like the narrator and there are more engaging stories out there, but this one still gets listened to every once in a while. The next book is probably my favorite of the series, although when a new one comes out, it ends up in my library within days. Does it sound like an item list at times? Yes. Is that a bad thing? No.
If you see a BMW motorcycle cruising down the road, you can be assured I'm listening to a book from Audible!
Not only is this a great story, but the performance was excellent and the book was full of great "prepper" ideas. If you're serious about prepping (which I'm not, but should be more of I guess), read/listen to this book with a pen and paper handy. The author throws out great ideas, products, other authors and must reads for anybody interested in the "post-financial collapse of America." I had a great time listening to this book, and highly recommend it!
over all I found the story to be good. The narrator, well I've heard better. What made the story dragged at times was the attention that was paid to the details of the weaponry and other events that were occurring. It's one thing to describe someone's gun in great detail and the type of ammunition that's in it. It's another thing to do that every time that person picks up their gun. I'm not swearing on a Bible that,-that happened every single time. It just really seemed like it sometimes.
