I was initially skeptical about this book. I usually go in for intelligently written "hard" science fiction and was put off by the "pulp" feel of this one after reading the description. On a whim, I tossed it in the shopping cart and gave it a whirl. After about an hour into the book, I realized that I was fully engaged and listening with rapt attention to every detail. It drew me in and took me to a very different world - one that I looked forward to being in (oddly enough).
The book has a very post-apocalyptic, post-invasion survivalist feel. Engaging and enjoyable - the narrator keeps your interest and draws you into the flow of the story. The story brings a feeling of watching separate acts in a play - consecutively occurring tails rather than a continuing storyline - this does nothing to take away from the story. As things progress, these "tails" get longer and more intense.
This was very entertaining! Not a terribly deep book, but engaging nonetheless. I will definitely listen to the second in the series.
