THIS BOOK STARTS OUT VERY SLOW, HAS SORT OF A RUNNING SERMON THROUGHOUT THE STORY. THAT SAID IT IS WELL WRITTEN AND IF YOU CONSIDER THE AUTHOR PROBABLY WANTED US HEATHEN'S TO GET A MESSAGE.... WELL IT WORKED... THE STORY IS VERY GOOD AND OF COURSE WHEN KEVIN PIERCE NARRATES ANYTHING IT MAKES IT BETTER... IF YOUR LOOKING FOR BRADLEY'S SURVIVALIST SERIES AND CHARACTERS LIKE MASON REESE FROM THAT BOOK.... KEEP LOOKING.. IF YOU CAN PUT UP WITH A HEAVY RELIGOUS UNDERTONE TO LISTEN TO A DARN FINE STORY BUY THIS BOOK...
I think I read all of Mark Goodwin's fictional books I've enjoyed all of them, and of course I always like Kevin Pearce he is one of my favorites narrators or oratory. This book is easy to digest well written the audiobook had absolutely no flaws which actually seems to happen quite often in audio books repeated sentences words misspoken. I read it in one day and had a really great time doing it. I guess in my opinion the only thing I would change would be to have a little bit more information about the characters what they look like maybe a little bit more background on them. Thanks again Mark and Kevin
I hope the narator is under contract to do all the books in the series . His voice really went with the dialogue and the characters in the story. I also liked the fact that every detail of the firearms were center story. Too many books describe to much every time a weapon comes into play in the story. Say it was a shotgun and move on. I plan on recommending this book to others.
Great book. All the books from Mark Goodwin are entertaining, educational, uplifting and inspirational. It is such a pleasure to have a wholesome story that edifies God, Faith and Family.
This is the first of a series and I am looking forward to the rest of the series. I have the complete set of the previous two series from Mark, The Economic Collapse Chronicles and Days of Noah. Both have been great series.
I am a fan of this genre and have read books from most of the major authors. Marks book are a good as any of them (better than most) but without the heavy handed use of language and excessive violence that you fine in some of them.
Mark does a great job of creating characters, environments and story lines that are developed, relative and relatable.
These are books that are safe for younger readers to read and learn from. A great vehicle for family discussions on Faith, God, Prepping and Personal responsibility.
The narrator, Kevin Pierce, is great as usual. He is the standard for the stories in the genre and for good reason.
Prior to reading this novel, I had read Mark Goodwin's "American Exit Strategy" which was a superb Post-Historical Fiction Novel. After that novel, I struggled with "Behold Darkness and Sorrow" because its story is so much slower paced. It took 19 chapters for the main conflict to manifest. In "American Exit Strategy," the main conflict gets rolling in the first few chapters.
I still enjoyed the story and characters of "Behold Darkness and Sorrow" even though it was very slow.
Also, this novel safely falls under Christian Fiction since God is presented as the main driver of the conflict and story. Other works of Fiction by Goodwin have Christian elements but not as drivers of the story.
I like Mark Goodwin a lot. He is both a good writer and a good Christian writer. I was surprised at how slow the progress of the plot was it "Behold Darkness and Sorrow" as it did take away from the enjoyment for me.
Those looking for a more Preper-flavored novel should instead read his Economic Collapse Series which starts with "The American Exit Strategy."
