    A 20-year world war is fought on American soil leaving the United States in ruins.

    Following his long military service in the war, Falcon is left to raise his two small children alone when his wife passes away.

    To learn of life and what has become of the country, he packs up and takes the children across the wastelands in search of something very special from his childhood. However, the heart-wrenching journey is not easy and Falcon ends up being the one who learns about life.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Jacqueline Druga and/or Darren Ziegler?

    Disappointing mini-book after listening to the longer and much more exciting prequile, Then Came War, first. Did not care for the name change of the main character from the prequile; and, the change in narrrators only added to the discontinuity.


    What could Jacqueline Druga have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    She could have put more effort into the entire storyline.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator sounded as boring as this audiobook proved to be. Given the lifelessness of the storyline itself he may have done the best with the material he had before him. However, he sounded as though he was reading to children, not to an adult audience.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Wasteland?

    I would have thrown it back to the author and told her it was not a book, but only part 1, and to better develop the storyline.

  • The Days of Noah: Book One: Conspiracy

    Could we be living in a time of which there is more prophetic writings than of any period in history? Noah Parker, like many in the United States, has been asleep at the wheel. During his complacency, the founding precepts of America have been slowly, systematically destroyed by a conspiracy that dates back hundreds of years. The signs can no longer be ignored and Noah is forced to pull his head out of the sand and see things for what they really are.

    Would you listen to The Days of Noah again? Why?

    Not only would I listen to it again, but I have listened to it three times over this weekend. Suspenseful yet fast moving with important details in each character's development.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is Cassie. I can totally relate to her strength and propping up her husband to be the best man he can be.


    What about Kevin Pierce’s performance did you like?

    I appreciated the continuity of narration of Mr. Pierces between Goodwin's pervious Economic Collapse trilogy and this book.


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

    Without giving up too much, I found Cassie's actions post raid particularly moving. She acted just as I like to imagine I would have done.

    Mr. Jones's taking in of his supervisee and helping to set him on the path to preparedness was another significant moment for me in this story.


    Any additional comments?

    If you enjoyed the American Meltdown Economic Collapse trilogy you will enjoy this every bit as much, if not more. I cannot wait for Book 2 in this series to be released.
