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.

    "Good book but...."

    I would have loved this book if it wasnt for the narration... probably the worst ive ever heard. I was hoping they would have found someone else to do the next book but looks like it wont happen. Buy this book and read it but dont listen unless you like the sound of a robot.

    Story
    "Great book, but poor narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to The McClane Apocalypse, Book 1 the most enjoyable?

    Preppers reign. People who prepare might make it through the SHTF. The also stick together which would be vital.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is John, in love with a girl carrying many hag ups. If she weren't so cute he would have walked away.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I don't like to criticize but the average 6th grader could do a better job of reading. There were no voice changes, and she couldn't even get through a sentence without pausing. I listen to about 2 books a week, but would start listening to the radio again if this is what all readers sounded like. Sorry Andrya Ambro; but you need to find another profession.


    Any additional comments?

    Because the story was well written and interesting, I would try the next in the series.

    "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.

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

    Story
    "Romance style, stilted narration"
    What would have made The McClane Apocalypse, Book 1 better?

    Fewer adverbs. A narrator who can read more naturally. The narrator's speech cadence is similar to a computer generated phone message.


    Would you recommend The McClane Apocalypse, Book 1 to your friends? Why or why not?

    It is a good story told only in a so-so manner. The narration is so stilted and oddly cadenced as to be a constant distraction from the story.
    The author uses adverbs much like a romance writer does and her various plot lines also smack of romance novels.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Odd cadence, usually concisely speaking syllables and separating three to 7 words at a time by a pause, regardless of how the sentence is punctuated. Through the whole book, the narrator never speaks in a natural, human manner.


    What character would you cut from The McClane Apocalypse, Book 1?

    All the characters fit into the narrative.


    Any additional comments?

    Author should let the characters demonstrate who they are rather than spending time spelling them out as part of a narrative. (Show me, instead of tell me).
    Author plays fast and loose with jargon among the military characters, slipping into police jargon regularly which soldiers do not use

    Story
    "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.
