    "Good book, bad performance"

    The first book in the Beginnings series the “Silent Victor” takes us through the start of the plague and fall of civilization. After the initial die off and gruesome ends to many people it slows down and focuses a lot of attention on character development (the series is like 26 books so there is time) but give you a good feel for what is going on and makes you really connect with the main characters. I enjoyed this enough to plan on moving onto the second book in the near future BUT, I will not be doing so if its read by Andrew Wehrlen. He has a herky jerky delivery a la Captain Kirk and all the women sound like southern bells.

    "Okay story but a terrible narrator"
    Would you try another book from Jacqueline Druga and/or Andrew Wehrlen?

    I would try a another title by this author but not in conjunction with this narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Andrew Wehrlen’s performances?

    Absolutely not. His abrupt halting style was off putting for. It was like listening to Captain Kirk read a book to me.

    "Not for me"

    Wanted to like it but just could not, though I did try. The narrator delivers the text in a halting, breathy type of way that just grated my nerves. The characters were not at all believable. The brilliant scientist is really an idiot and the grieving mother is at the middle of a love triangle that is totally out of place in this story. Also, many of the relationships are not made clear so it left me wondering what the heck was going on. I would pass on this one.

    "Sad Sad performance."

    The book was really not bad at all but the performance was awful. If you can get past that then you will like the book.

    "Good till the second half, but a horrible narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to The Silent Victor the most enjoyable?

    The first half was fun, and what I expect from a good virus-kills-the-world story.


    Would you recommend The Silent Victor to your friends? Why or why not?

    not the audiobook. the narrator was horrible.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Andrew Wehrlen?

    anybody.
