Next to Ray Porter, Robert Pekoff is now in my top 5 narrators. He just nailed the story and brought a lot of drama, especially when reading the the two brothers. The brothers turned out to be some of the best evil characters I have read.
It was an interesting story, but the motivation for creating silos and everything else behind what happens to the people and silos has no basis in logic. I just don't believe such a small number of key players could have made all of this happen.
The 500 lifespan of a silo and everything inside is a total joke.
That being said, I am still going to read the next book in the serious to see what happens.
I just don't understand why this book has some many great reviews. I found nothing engaging about the society or the characters. Boring.
I was really hoping to read a MHI story, but this was really a Franks story. In fact MHI has only a very small part in the entire book, which was a disappointment. Overall this really was a "back story" book.
The book did grow on me and I was pretty happy with it overall.
The 1st half of the book is really some of the best and most unique science fiction I have read in a really long time. The 2nd half of the book gets a little confusing and I found myself a little lost. 5 starts for the 1st half and 3.5 stars for the second half. Outstanding performance.
Wow. This is not only the best book in the series but it is one of the best books I have read in a year.
It was non stop suspense and action. I couldn't stop listening. I don't want to say more, otherwise I will spill key plot points.
The reading by Ray Porter was amazing as always. This reading should be award winning.
Looking forward to the next book.
This Zombie story really is different from all the others I have read. The book has a feeling of optimism throughout as you see the country rebuilding.
Yes the book has an bad guy throughout but it felt really different. It wasn't some crazy person trying to take over the world for no reason with a bunch of dumb followers. This bad guy had a goal and I could sympathize with him.
I really enjoyed all of the characters. The performance was outstanding. Could not have been a better voice for the characters.
Wish the book was longer. I would love to read a follow-up book about the same "world".
A story about very screwed up people doing a lot of really screwed up things.
From cutting to statutory rape to drinking blood. A story about horrible people doing dumb and bad things. I never really found any point to the story.
Well read, that is about it.
I really didn't like the first 1/4 of the book. I thought it was slow and I couldn't figure out the plot. As the book went on it really got much better. Really enjoyed the characters and story. Well read.
I rated the 1st book as being ok and decided to try the 2nd book based on reviews, since I did like the concepts of this futuristic world. This 2nd book was horrible. I couldn't follow the story and had a hard time connecting to any characters. Almost no action compared to the 1st book.
