    "Great Book can't wait for Part 2"

    I truly enjoyed this one, really liked the way the characters were developed, their thoughts were expressed well and the narrater was totally enjoyable and expressed the characters well. Very much looking forward to the next book in this series at least I hope it's a series.
    I recommend it to all.

    "Well done!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed the story and found that it was well plotted, the characters were likable, and it didn't feel preachy even though it still held to a biblical framework.

    "Leave you hanging"
    If you could sum up Through Many Fires in three words, what would they be?

    Ever see Return of the Jedi? Remember how you felt at the end? There you go!


    Would you be willing to try another book from Kyle Pratt? Why or why not?

    It was a good story. However, it ended abruptly, all wrapped up quickly.

    Story
    "There's no fire here"

    If you're looking for excitement, keep looking. You will not find it here. There is nothing exciting about this story, which is odd given the subject matter, and just as important, there is nothing exciting about the way the narration is done. The entire story is told in a matter of fact, reading type of way, so much so that it seems that things are pretty calm in the face of the biggest disaster a country could potentially realize. There is little difference among the male voices as well. Not one of the better selections among this genre.

    "Good not great"

    I've read a few better, but I've read many worse. This scenario does make more sense than any other I've entertained and it's not a bunch of zombies. Thankfully. The narrator seems to do decent as well.

    "Decent book"

    Similar storyline as 299 days but the nuclear angle was different. Not a whole lot of details or thick plot.

    Story
    "Interesting book, but uninspired reader"

    I have read a fair number of books with this premise - the US is attacked with (take your pick) nuclear weapons, a biological weapon, an EMP burst, a natural plague or some other disaster and things start to fall apart. This book is different from many of the others because the main character is not a "prepper" ready for whatever occurs, does not have some fortress in the mountains or woods and does not resemble Rambo. Instead he is an average person with an average family and is only trying to survive to find those he loves who are still alive. Of course he is not quite "average" in the sense that he is able to attach himself to what remains of one of the state governments, but he is no super hero.

    About an hour into this book I came to the conclusion that it was going to be difficult getting through the entire story. The sound quality is fine but the reader is uninspired and the narration is bland and uninteresting. However about half way through the book I found myself interested enough to not want to put the book down as I wanted to know what happens to the main characters and, at the end of this volume, I seriously considered buying the next book, if only to see how the lives of the people turn out. The basic plot seems predictable enough and it is clear where the story is going, but it is not at all clear what will happen to those characters who are central to the lives of the main character, but not central to the overall theme of the book.

    I have not (yet) purchased the next volume, but I gave this book 4 stars because I just might.
