Agreed with several other folks, it was really tough to get through this, in fact I couldn't finish it. The writing was very metaphor-filled and the jumping around in time was really tough to manage. I listen to audio books while driving and this one took a LOT of effort to follow, and at about the 3/4 point, I gave up. I didn't care about any of the characters and I didn't understand why so little was happening.
It was written, well in the sense that it was beautiful how he painted pictures of things, but it was tough to care.
Great listen. I found Joseph Nassise for his book, EYES TO SEE, a few months ago and loved the storytelling, the pacing and the way the story unfolded. I immediately started looking for more of his work and found RIVERWATCH here on Audible. A really great listen, scary story, a lot of "how the hell are they going to get out of this." moments.
I had just tried listening to a zombie story that was nowhere near as good as it sounded. This one came along as a suggested book and the synopsis sounded great. AND IT WAS!! I can't wait for the next book in the series!
I absolutely love the story in this, the pacing. The second book, The Unincorporated War is a completely different style, but they all tie in so beautifully. I love this book and I have been suggesting it to family and friends big time ever since.
The performance is fantastic. Todd McLaren did Halo: Fall of Reach as well and is fantastic.
Whether you like philosophy, sci-fi, or just a damn good story, you should check out this entire series.
