I have been listening to audio books, plays and the like since I was a child, which was a LONG time ago. Does that make me an expert?

    Despite all the warning bells, Black Friday arrives as a devastating tidal wave that completely destroys our fragile economy in a single day. There is panic in the streets as banks close their doors, seemingly forever, at noon. Store shelves are swept bare and the gas pumps soon run dry. Jimmy Logan watches in disbelief as his world crumbles before his eyes. Luckily, he has friends who have planned ahead for this nightmarish scenario and he joins up with a group who plan to ride the storm out in northern Minnesota. Some of their group will be dead before the sun sets.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    LOL..NOT for the narration and ONLY if you are into yet another " end of times/apocalyptic" series. Waay over the top for me, but some might enjoy the concepts.

    Some really confusing aspects to this book. The references that begin each chapter are disjointed, and seem to be trying to make a point, without really making one.

    The first half of the book is dedicated to preparation and rationale, which actually works reasonably well. The second half , not so much. The resolution...lol.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Nicholas Antinozzi? Why or why not?

    Perhaps, but not anytime soon.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Yes. Gawdawful narration. Over the top, and the females are terrible. Run far away from this narrator.


    Was Desperate Times worth the listening time?

    On balance, not really.


    Any additional comments?

    I think I am at the end times of my "end of times as we know them" period. We survived the Rapture and 12-21-12, so let's all move on.
