A fun ride. A much more intimate look at an apocalyptic world than others. There's a point a long the way that I really wanted him to pick up the pace. It was worth hanging on until it did. Deakins did a great job on a fun flight.
The story was so, so good. I cried a lot but that's okay. The narrator did a perfect job.
this is one of those books that I could not wait to get into the car and listen to. This is one that seems genderless. As a female I could relate to his, the main characters, more compassionate and artistic side. Any man who enjoys Sam acho narration would enjoy all the guns and battles for survival and who would not love Bangla? there was humor in this story you will shed some tears as well. If you are a dog lover you most certainly better grab a box of Kleenex. But at the same time it gives a fantastic perspective and a sense of hope. I would gladly read a sequel if they have one. as for the narrator, he did a wonderful job. He nailed what I envisioned dangly sounding like as well as Pops. That was really good.
I didn't do much for the first twenty years of my life, spent the next twenty in the military, and the twenty after that in college. Then, I mostly retired.
I loved this story, and while it is post apocalyptic, it ends on a note of the reality that we all face. Well done.
The book was good overall, the way it was written was captivating and there were plenty of good similies and analogies to keep you entertained in any moment. The romance went a little far otherwise I may have given it 5 stars, but it was very interesting. The narrator did good, at first I thought the voice was too monotone and slow but eventually it started to feel natural and how it should be, maybe I just got used to it. I do not necessarily recommend it but if you want something written different it will make you stay till the end at least.
Moving story of survival and the human spirit. It pulled me in with believable characters that I found myself actually caring about. It is written in such a way that I believe it could have a sequel some day... That would be wonderful to see what could happen next.
The story is quite interesting, and the narration is like a radio performance with background music, etc. The characters go from whispering and speaking softly to screams and loud noises and mood music. This makes it nearly impossible, or at least quite unpleasant, for one to listen to with headphones.
I'd prefer a traditional narration to the screaming and loud mood music.
I'm not sure why post-apocalyptic novels are interesting to me - and a lot of other people. I don't follow the Zombie craze and frankly don't understand the fascination with it. I like stories of survival and the psychology of societal breakdown and rebuild. Heller's book chronicles the path of Hig, a survivor of a population-thinning flu pandemic who gets around in a 1956 Cessna single engine prop airplane and lives, for much of the novel, at Erie airport in Colorado. Erie's one of the airports I practice landings at, and the stuff he sees out the window of the Cessna are the same things I see flying here today. There is no gore, little violence, just some soul-searching by a man who has lost nearly everything dear to him. He still has flying, and that saves him in ways a pilot can relate to.
