I downloaded this as a change from my usual fodder. It sounded interesting. That was the only reason. Actually its a very good book, well written, narrated and I think it would be fairly realistic for the situation. Its very much a SF book but full of suspense. I look forward to book two.
The main character, the newbie detective working under such difficult conditions. The narration is so good that you can picture the main and other characters.
I think overall the book flows with all scenes being well written and narrated. The number on the box.
Yes I would prefer to listen to it all, but it is easy to remember the storyline if you do need a break.
Keep an eye on this author and narrator.
I've been a cop for 18 years. The cops in this book are out of a 60s comic book. Hollywood has a better grasp and it sucks.
Disappointment. Premiss was great.
Got this audiobook for a road trip. It was a fun listen. Pretty simple and straight forward. Love the concept.
The plot was alright. I was hoping for a bit more, but all in all, it was a good romp and I'll be looking forward to the next installation in the series.
This is the first Peter Berkrot performance I've listened to.
It made me want to watch my noir classic films.
I'm a professional dog trainer who loves to read. I have degrees in English and Adult Ed. I love well written books that take me away.
Loved this well crafted, well written, thought provoking, and engaging take on a classic who-done-it. Well worth the listen. Wish there were more like it.
Though there is lots of post-apocalyptic fiction being written, pre-apocalyptic fiction is a much more rare thing and I loved the uniqueness of the concept.
This novel is full of funny, sad and poignant moments. Unfortunately I can't' think of any that wouldn't be plot spoilers, sorry.
I really find a good narrator makes a great book even better and Peter Berkot's was so good I found myself wanting to search out other books he's narrated.
If you like this one I would highly recommend Charlie Huston's Sleepless, another novel told from the point of view of a cop on a world's that's slowly coming to an end.
If you like TC Boyle, you should like this book. It is an odd premise and a quirky story but well told and narrated..
Never quite knew what twists were in store. That kept me reading on.
Just well done, nothing about it that distracted from the story.
Not really. Better it be savored than rushed.
innovative, gripping, detailed
Took a while to get into the story but yes it did keep me wanting more
Can't wait to finish the trilogy. I have an idea as to where it might be goig but good job to the author to come up with a new twist for this genre
Blind Vietnam veteran. Antique weapons collector. Outdoor enthusiast. Florida State University graduate with Business major. Owner of home health agency. registered nurse.
This is a cracker-jack story that Aesop would have loved.
I can't tell you more without spoiling it for you, but if you want an enjoyable read, you can't do much better.
Yes, It was entertaining and surprising. He does leave you enough clues, but you don't believe the ending until you get there.The book was never boring. Each page turned itself. You just want to find out a little more until the end.
Yes. He did a good job.
A follow up book may ruin the premise of this book. Sometimes knowing ruins the story like catching your parents playing Santa Clause.
My complaint is only the style of story. The hard nose detective feel of the story annoyed me. Otherwise, this was a good reed.
