Publisher's Summary

"The end of the world doesn't happen with a bang. It takes slightly longer than that but not by much. Research projects, Gross Anatomy class, tests, and fancy coffee drinks will cease to be important. The fight for her life will become the only thing that matters."

Reagan McClane is a prodigy med school student on the brink of a brilliant career, but the United States and the rest of the world are headed toward total economic and social collapse. And it doesn't take more than a few hours for mass crime, looting, and pillaging to spread across the country like a plague. A brutal attack at her university leads to a fight for her life before Reagan barely makes it home to the safety of her awaiting grandparents and sisters on their family farm in Tennessee.

Three sexy Army Rangers, one of whom is married to Reagan's eldest sister, will join the McClane family to build their farm into an impenetrable fortress that they will fight to keep, no matter the cost. Reagan will find that defending her hardened, scarred heart against ever letting anyone in again will prove even more difficult than survival as one Ranger, in particular, tries to invade it. The McClane Apocalypse is a story of love, survival, and the importance of family during the worst of times imaginable.

    Story
    "Great Book, horrible narrattion"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The McClane Apocalypse, Book 1 to be better than the print version?

    No.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Nothing


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    lt seemed the narrator was reading the story for the first time, without having prereading of the story. Her disjointed reading caused me to stop enjoying the story, many times. This should be re-recorded, with someone who has at least read it a couple of times before putting to tape.

    "Save your money and time"
    What disappointed you about The McClane Apocalypse, Book 1?

    Condescending, redundant, poorly written. The narration was poorly produced. Narration stilted with lack of flow.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Get a different narrator. Might make the writing sound less condescending and sophomoric.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The McClane Apocalypse, Book 1?

    It needs a complete rewrite. There are a lot of inconsistencies.


    Any additional comments?

    The subjects seems to be well researched, i.e. medical, firearms, horses, etc. Character development is weak, though Regan seems to be the best developed.

    It's hard to believe that Susan wasn't prepared to deliver the afterbirth, since she had already given birth to 2 children. And what experienced mother isn't concerned with her baby's fontanel?

    "book with identity crisis"

    this book doesn't know if it wants to be an action or romance so it does nether of them well. This but needs a better editor. It is missing a lot of technical material that could better explain what is happening. meny of the problems that are experienced are easily solved and with out sacrifice. I personally don't not like it when all the good guys win.

    I sorry to say this book was pretty bad. The story arc was all over the place and the characters were one dementional. The reader was also terrible for this book. I personally really can say I would recomend this to anyone who enjoys the post apocalyptic genre. It's a fail on all counts. Sorry

    With a 3 hour daily commute, a good book can either make or break my day. I love a good romance or mystery novel.

    "Horrible narration kills a great story!"
    Would you try another book from Kate Morris and/or Andrya Ambro?

    I would try and have read the entire McClane Apocalypse series of books. I don't know if I would give Andrya Ambro another chance as a narrator though. she came off robotic at times. It was as if she was using a computer program and it was her first read though the book.


    What other book might you compare The McClane Apocalypse, Book 1 to and why?

    It was very similar to most post apocalyptic books with the romance twist thrown into it.


    What didn’t you like about Andrya Ambro’s performance?

    She came off robotic at times. It was as if she was using a computer program and it was her first read though the book.


    Do you think The McClane Apocalypse, Book 1 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes because there has been 4 others already written in the series.

    "Really bad"

    I was very disappointed in this purchase. The narration was flat, expressionless and the narrator chopped up phrases with no rhythm or grace. I haven't experienced this kind of poor quality on Audible before. Also this is a romance novel more than a post apocalyptic novel.

    "High hopes for next in series"

    Narrator is not my favorite however book one is a great "first in series". once the book was over I felt like I knew each character inside and out and how they all interact with each other. I have a feeling the story line will only get better and can't wait to see what happens next!

    "Great story"

    I wish they would make a movie of these books. I have read them at least 5 times. Can't wait for book 2 to come out on audio.

    "Good if you like romance novels."

    95% romance novel and 5% action. The narration was jerky with little inflection or emotion.

    "Sad, so sad."

    I am so disappointed, I am actually sad! The premise of the book was so great. But the delivery killed it. The audio-book version narration is horrendous. I do not know if it would've been better as a book on in's own... but from what I was able to hear in the narration the presentation of the story overall is lacking greatly. I waned to care for the characters as many of them are so good! So many plot twists are engaging, but die on arrival. I planned to go and see what the rest of the series is like, but to be honest after reading book one, I don't think I will suffer through the other 4 in the series. So, proceed at your own risk.
