    Only six weeks have passed since a super-EMP attack devastated the United States, but already, life has changed dramatically. Most of America has become a wasteland filled with starving bands of people, mobs and gangs. Millions are dead and millions more are suffering, with no end in sight. For Gordon, Samantha, Sebastian, Cruz, and Barone, the turmoil and chaos they dealt with in the early weeks after the attack will seem trivial in comparison to the collapse of society that plays out before their eyes.

    What disappointed you about The Long Road - A Post Apocalyptic Novel?

    I don't know what they were thinking. It was like listening to a speed reader. I couldn't listen to the whole book. Can't believe I paid for this one too.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Joseph Morton?

    Toby Leonard Moore

    Three terrorist attacks are launched from freighters against the United States. Only one fully succeeds, but in the blink of an eye all of the country west of the Rocky Mountains is transformed into the technological equivalent of the 18th century - no electricity, no computers, no electronics of anykind, or any of the amenities of modern life that depend on them. This is the story of ordinary and extraordinary people, high and low, who struggle to survive in a mortally wounded nation, as America's enemies within and without circle for the kill.

    As the financial system crumbles around them, a family learns how to survive the challenges of an unfamiliar new world. Bill, Gracie, and their son Joe learn new ways to live as their reality changes. Bread, gasoline, and even toilet paper all become scarce when the trucks stop rolling. When a ghost from the past threatens their lives, there are no police to call. And even greater, unexpected trials lie ahead. Faced with a new and unfamiliar economy, they find new friends and learn to cherish the community around them. From food to self defense, there is no one to rely on but their neighbors and themselves.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    After 16 chapters I could not go any more. Story was boring.


    What was most disappointing about D. J. Mitchell’s story?

    Slow, slow, slow...


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator did a very good job. The story just did not hold my interest.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The Narrator has a great voice and is easy to listen too.

    The End Series by New York Times best-selling author Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall is an epic thrill ride ripped from today's headlines and filtered through Scriptural prophecy. As world events begin setting the stage for the 'end of days' foretold in Revelation, Joshua Jordan must weigh the personal price he must pay to save the nation he loves.

    Brice says: "Great thrill ride :-)"
    "Story had a few slow spots."

    What made the experience of listening to Thunder of Heaven the most enjoyable?

    Overall story was good, but it had a few slow parts. There is a lot more "god" parts in this book and it is becoming to unbelievable. I think I will listen to his last book when it comes out but I'm in no rush. It will be one of those..."well I can't find anything else types".


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Shocked...let's keep it real.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Iran getting nuked!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No
