Don't feel bad about skipping over this book. It is painfully slow and every single little detail is described. They are always praying about something. I could even fast forward 30 seconds and they would still be praying about one thing or another. The author pushes his Baptist beliefs throughout the character interactions to a point of taking away from the story. It is so obvious you can see it coming.
The narrating is so inconsistent it is hard to keep listening or keep up. The narrators will start with what they think is a Southern accent and move to a New York accent and then try to have a black accent but the black accent will turn back to a New York accent midway through the book. It's amazing this audio was released with this narration.
I am so glad this book is over and won't be reading any sequels.
I read Book One in the series, Once Upon An Apocalypse, Journey Home, and it was outstanding! Made me want to get to book two right away!
The author, Jeff Motes, keeps it real and the characters are likeable, so you want them to make it! I like how Jeff knows his weapons, survival skills and tactics. As a retired Military NCO and Deputy Sheriff, that makes it much more enjoyable when it is correct in describing the tools of the trade.
Loved how the author actually has a WOMAN doing a woman's voice, not some guy trying to sound like a girl! WOW, how authentic is that!
Made me think I better keep honing up my own shooting and survival skills. I don't cry unless one of my dogs die.............
I cannot wait for Jeff to come out with future follow-up books and keep the series going!
