    America is in the thrall of a full-scale socioeconomic breakdown. The stock market plummets, hyperinflation destroys the value of the dollar, and the population, unprepared for hardship, panics. Practically overnight, the high technology infrastructure and chains of supply collapse and wholesale rioting and looting grip every city. Law enforcement, transportation, electricity, fuel, and medical supplies are all in the past now, as the country staggers beneath its own weight.

    What was most disappointing about James Wesley, Rawles’s story?

    As a Christian and fan of post-apocalyptic literature I was looking forward to this book. I was greatly disappointed. The author uses what seems to be the entire book to preach his about his disapproval off being of the gold standard, his hatred of the U.N., his belief in owning lots of guns, and his preference for the King James Bible. His condescending and smug tone was only outdone by his flat characters and missing story arch. The book simply ends in mid sentence. This book would probably be enjoyed by skinheads or anyone living on a fenced compound in north Idaho.

    Millions of Robert Jordan fans will rejoice at the release of the ninth book in the phenomenally best-selling series The Wheel of Time. The sequel to the number-one New York Times best seller The Path of Daggers, which swept the nation like a firestorm, Winter's Heart continues a remarkable tale that is mesmerizing an entire generation of readers.

    Benjamin says: "Good book, bad audio"
    "Good book horrible audio"
    Overall

    This was the worst audio book I have ever listened to. There are long pauses as a result of poor editing that make you think story ones are changing but there is no change. Inversely when there should be a pause indicating a switch the editor leaves no gap so several paragraphs later you realize you have switched characters or storylines. Very confusing.

    Big chunks of text are repeated. Audio levels vary widely. The editor was asleep on this one. The publisher should give this free until they fix it

    About the book.... Probably the slowest in the series but still good
