December 2012, a massive solar storm knocks out the power grid. Three hundred million Americans are suddenly faced with a survival situation. They have no water, electricity or fuel. Food rapidly disappears from the store shelves, not to be replaced. Only three percent will survive. Those three percent will have much in common. What does it take to be one of them?

Adrian because he's a bad ass.
This is my first listen of any of Mr. Hacker's books.
Yes. A compelling story packed with useful information.
The thoughtfulness and planning for survival.
First of all, there seems to have been problems during production that resulted in a tinny quality to the sound, right from the beginning. There are also faint sounds in the background, which as difficulty to ignore!
I was distracted the reader's accent and tone. Would have enjoyed the story more with a different reader -- and with better sound quality!
No. It's easier to digest in small pieces.
Please clean up the recording's technical problems and re-release. Thank you!
I knew I wanted to buy this book for the Learning Experience I would gain. I am not disappointed. In fact I am listening to it for a 2nd time to hear the lessons again.
I live in the edge of the Feral Hog region of this part of the State of Texas. I drive through their turf everyday, and know they are very dangerous. Who ever imagined a possibility that man would become a menu item for the Wild Hog population?
Very interesting work by the author. I almost didn't buy it because it was under a 6 hours listening time. However, I did not use a credit, and paid for it outright. It was worth it, and hope to see volume two here soon.
It is a freaky thought of how life would go on should the world lose power/technology. This is far less dramatic that the zombie theme and far more gritty. It talks quite a bit on how to survive doomsday situations and in the preparation needed.
I did enjoy Mr. Hacker as the narrator. His tempo kept me engaged in the story and drew me through a book that was difficult to contemplate.
Lots of technical information, and lays it out like it would happen. If you like SHTF books, this is one for you.
Hacker isn't my favorite narrator, however, he didn't bore me. He does read the story and try to keep you entertained - I just don't like it when narrators try and do accents.
I don't like when a series starts with one narrator then switches to another who changes the nature of the characters, etc.
Something from a writer or narrator that I already like.
No way, in A Distant Eden: Volume 1 Mr. Hacker tries Texan accents, none work, even the Latin gang-banger was off it sounded like some sort of stereotypical Asian accent.
Anger, that I spent a credit on it!
Not worth the credit. Re-listen to One Second After or Lucifer's Hammer instead.
