    Story
    (56)

    With the economy in free fall, the government crippled by indecision, the streets taken over by new political parties, and the fragile institutions of civilization crumbling, a young man finds himself homeless and alone on the outskirts of Washington, D.C., facing certain death unless he can master survival skills he never imagined needing. Fending off violent citizens in an urban landscape that is gradually sliding into looting and mayhem, the protagonist emerges as an ultimate force of justice in a lawless land.

    If you could sum up American Apocalypse in three words, what would they be?

    Sh*t happens, people change


    What did you like best about this story?

    The people and how the government changes, very real.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Never turn your back on the government when you think it's dead...it's not.


    Any additional comments?

    Not to happy with the ending and the fantasy aspect of it. There was no warning that the story was going to head that direction.

    Story
    (2031)

    In a steel-and-lead-encased bunker 20 feet below the basement level of his house, a soldier waits for his final orders. On the surface, a plague ravages the planet, infecting over 90% of the populace. The bacterium burrows through the brain, destroying all signs of humanity and leaving behind little more than base, prehistoric instincts. The infected turn into hyper-aggressive predators, with an insatiable desire to kill and feed. Someday soon, the soldier will have to open the hatch to his bunker, and step out into this new wasteland, to complete his mission....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Not sure, on 2nd book and still scratching my head.


    What about Christian Rummel’s performance did you like?

    very good


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    the main guy is trained and yet act kinda dopey


    Any additional comments?

    I'm having a problem with the main guy in the story, I like the premise, so all i'm saying is they should have spent some more on his training in people and negotiation skills, not killing people. One bad choice after another, and dig up your bunker for crap sake, maybe its cause I am in construction, but lame logic has made all things worse.

    A plan to destroy America, a hundred years in the making, is about to be unleashed. There is a powerful technique called the Overton Window that can shape our lives, our laws, and our future. It works by manipulating public perception so that ideas previously thought of as radical begin to seem acceptable over time. Move the Window and you change the debate. Change the debate and you change the country.

    What made the experience of listening to The Overton Window the most enjoyable?

    Because it so close to the truth


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Molly Ross then Halus


    What about James Daniels’s performance did you like?

    Good job


    Any additional comments?

    The author forgets his roll in the overall problems pointed out in the books, maybe he thinks he is Noah, but to me he is more like the father, but not as evil.

    This first book of the Holding Their Own series, A Story of Survival, is set in the year 2015, when the world is burdened by the second Great Depression. The United States, already weakened by internal strife, becomes the target of an international terror plot. A series of attacks results in thousands of casualties and disables the country's core infrastructure. The combination of economic hardship and the staggering blow of the terror attacks results in a collapse of the government.

    Amazon Customer says: "Worst Narrator Ever!!!"

    What did you like best about Holding Their Own: A Story of Survival? What did you like least?

    Tons of prep info and comon sence


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    By being a Sh*t reader and having rotten recording equip.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes,unless it was a High School film project like the narration sounded like a 6th grade reading class,


    Any additional comments?

    My advice is to try and imagine this as a survivors account while on the road and reading from his journal and from memory, (on very bad equip). This helps to get past the lack of professionalism.

    By using this method, I'm actually on my second time through and enjoying the story.
