    In the present day, as the man-made apocalypse unfolds, three strangers navigate the chaos. Lila, a doctor and an expectant mother, is so shattered by the spread of violence and infection that she continues to plan for her child’s arrival even as society dissolves around her. Kittridge, known to the world as "Last Stand in Denver", has been forced to flee his stronghold and is now on the road, dodging the infected, armed but alone and well aware that a tank of gas will get him only so far. April is a teenager fighting to guide her little brother safely through a landscape of death and ruin.

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

    I recommend this series to anyone with a pulse. Finally book 2 is here praise Allah!!


    What other book might you compare The Twelve: A Novel to and why?

    If you havn't read "The Passage" yet you HAVE TO get it as well as "The Twelve" NOOWW!


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Brick is one of the best narrators around and he's the perfect voice for this series.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A film wouldn't be a long enough format to do this series justice. I would rather see it as a series or mini-series on hbo or showtime.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for the next book.

    Set in the border states of Kansas and Missouri, Woe to Live On explores the nature of lawlessness and violence, friendship and loyalty, through the eyes of young recruit Jake Roedel. Where he and his fellow First Kansas Irregulars go, no one is safe, no one can be neutral. Roedel grows up fast, experiencing a brutal parody of war without standards or mercy. But as friends fall and families flee, he questions his loyalties and becomes an outsider even to those who have become outlaws.

    If you could sum up Woe to Live On in three words, what would they be?

    Realistic, Gritty, Outstanding!


    What other book might you compare Woe to Live On to and why?

    Books by Edward Abbey, Jim Harrison and Cormac McCarthy. The characters and the language. Not so much the scenery or landscape discriptions.


    Any additional comments?

    Daniel Woodrell is the only writer I have ever read who accurately uses the language of southern Missouri. Having grown up and presently living in a very small town in southeast MO myself (Eminence, MO about 50 miles from where the author resides) I am thrilled to read books written in the language of my home. I highly recommend all of Daniel Woodrell's books to anyone who is interested in peering thru a window into the modernday or historic Ozark hillbilly world.
