    Eric Riordan was once a wealthy man leading a comfortable, easy life. Until one day Gabriel, his oldest friend, Marine Corps veteran, and a former mercenary, told him how the world was going to end. He did his best to prepare. He thought he was ready for anything. He was wrong. As the dead rise up to devour the living, one man finds himself struggling to survive in the ruins of a shattered world. Alone, isolated, and facing starvation, his only chance is to flee to the Appalachians and join forces with Gabriel.

    Where does No Easy Hope rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would say this book ranks mid to high for zombie stories for me. 7.5 out of 10


    Any additional comments?

    Worth the credit. The second book is also good. I can't wait for the third book to be released. The only negative thing would be the timeline seems to slow way down at a few points. It could be a long series but that would be cool with me.

    America faces a full-scale socioeconomic collapse in the near future. The stock market plummets, hyperinflation cripples commerce and the mounting crisis passes the tipping point. Practically overnight, the fragile chains of supply and high-technology infrastructure fall, and wholesale rioting and looting grip every major city.

    I loved all the info and the author seems to have done his homework. The part that drove me crazy is all the religious points. It would have been an excellent book without all the useless God talk. Every time, and it was often, the author mentioned someone's religion, prayers, morals and quoting the bible, it just ruined it for me. Honestly, instead of mentioning the endless religious aspects, I would have rather he described bowel movements in great detail. If he did that it would have been more tolerable. Do people really live like that? All the good people in the book were religious. All the bad were not. As with the majority of the people on the planet, I am not American. I understand the concept the author was trying to get across but really are Americans actually that freedom loving that they will kill, starve and see their loved ones die just because of gun control and refusing to pay their debts to the world? Seems far fetched but who knows eh. I purchased the second book at the same time as this one. If there is half the God crap I'm going to loose it.

    Eric Riordan doesn't look for trouble, but trouble has a way of finding him. Two years have passed since the Outbreak, and after joining forces with his friend Gabriel, he has managed to stay alive by fleeing to the peaks of the Appalachian Mountains. With supplies running low, and enemies gathering, the two survivors are forced to begin their journey west to Colorado. Along the way they will find unexpected allies, reunite with old friends, and make deadly new enemies.

    This book was just as good or even better than the first. I enjoyed where and how the story unfolded. A good zombie fix awaits:) I want the third book ASAP!
