    Story
    (24)

    An epidemic has killed off most humans, turning the rest into beasts with sharp nails, keen senses and an insatiable hunger. Now, years later, a solitary survivor hides in a trailer above a dead city. This is life with the door and windows taped shut, where survival comes down to two, simple rules: stay quiet, and protect the air.

    What disappointed you about The Mountain and The City?

    Narration was excruciating. Very hard to listen to, quality was poor, intonation was absent.
    Very flat affect, monotone.


    What could Brian Martinez have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Narrator was so bad as to spoil the whole thing for me. D.J. Molles mentioned the book, said it was one book that he learned from, that is the only reason I ordered it. Now, we know what he learned, He learned if he could not afford a great narrator, don't publish a audio book.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Victoria Smart?

    Anyone would be better than Victoria Smart. (Sorry Victoria, but it is the truth.)


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Mountain and The City?

    I would avoid the lengthy description and frequent referrals to past events. The story would have benefitted from a more chronological approach.


    Any additional comments?

    I really don't like to write such a negative review, but I would tell my friends to avoid the Audible version for sure.
