A New World: Chaos (Book 1) | [John O'Brien]

A New World: Chaos (Book 1)

Jack, a sometimes humorous, sometimes philosophical ex-special operations pilot and soldier is one of the few left to struggle through the desolation left in the aftermath; seeking to survive as a new ferocious species emerges from the rubble, hungry and unrelenting. Will his special-forces training be enough? Will he be able to keep his children safe and guide the few survivors through perils that now roam the world they once knew? Or will the hordes that now own the night prevail, forever removing the last of mankind from existence?

Humankind was once at the top of the food chain. But that has now changed.

    Who the hell narrated this? Nicolas Cage? No? Could 'a fooled me..... And the sound effects are ridiculous. Good story though.

    "total waste of a credit."
    Any additional comments?

    This is truly the worst audio book I have ever tried to listen to. Yes the narration is that bad. I tried the sample and thought I could endure but the sample is tolerable. I could not get past the third chapter. Don't waste your money.

    "Scary good!"
    Where does A New World: Chaos (Book 1) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    top ten


    Which character – as performed by Christopher John Fetherolf – was your favorite?

    Jack


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh a couple of times but mostly just tense thanks to the different voices and sounds.


    Any additional comments?

    Since I've already read the books, I usually like to listen to them because you can hear so much that might have been missed while reading. This was no different. I loved the story line already and I was very surprised to hear the different noises and the sounds/screech and the voices of the players. It made it very realistic and kept me wanting more. The Story itself is post apocalyptic but instead of the usual zombies plot, this has a twist.

    Once again the Flu Virus and Vaccine are the culprits but instead of it creating Zombies, it creates a mutated form of human that is faster, stronger and deadlier than anything anyone has ever encountered. And Mankind is their primary source of food. But their one advantage is daylight... the creatures are deathly allergic to sunlight.

    But all Jack wants is to rescue his kids then find a way to cross the ocean to bring Lynn, his soldier girlfriend home. He has given his word and will not let her down. His sense of duty and high morals have him at odds because he wants above all else find a safe place for his family, Lynn, and anyone else that has come under the protection of his umbrella

    But the creatures rule the night and they must survive every night, praying for daylight so they can begin planning on surviving another night... a vicious cycle that has only just begun.

    Story
    "I had mixed feelings in the begining."

    The narration was..terrible.

    The book was kind of slow at the beginning, I had to skip all those flashbacks that the main protagonist had at the oddest moments.

    Otherwise the book was entertaining , with a different kind of zombie. The first person view of the story (in this case), makes you feel like the secondary characters are more like part of the wallpaper, way back in the background.

    Also, some parts of the story are kind of unbelievable and naive but at the end you take it as part of being entertained.

    I will read the next book, I hear that it is better (or at least, like the second part of this one. :)

    "Hated the narration"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I had read the series and hoped the audible would be as good.


    What didn’t you like about Christopher John Fetherolf’s performance?

    Just didn't ring true to me.
    The sound track was distracting. However the screams were very chilling. Narration was monotone and cold.

    "good zombie story! apart from the narrator"

    Will I enjoyed this story some annoying parts with the voices.But if you like an all round zombie story for that 'fix' get this . A sudden but good conclusion.

    "Amazing book!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A New World: Chaos (Book 1) to be better than the print version?

    It is hard to say which one (the book or the audio) is better... I experienced them differently. I read the book first, so every experience was "for the first time" and I could not put the book down for the life of me. The Audio (even though I know what is going to happen) is still pretty intense.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A New World: Chaos (Book 1)?

    The whole book is memorable, but if I had to pick which moment particular, it would have to be the flight to Kuwait where Jack picked up his girlfriend


    Have you listened to any of Christopher John Fetherolf’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, this was the first time, and it was pretty good.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope there are more audiobooks!! I am all caught up with the story thus far, and got this audiobook to pass the time between publications. I would like to see all of his books on audio... in fact it would be ice if this turned into a movie or TV series. It is pretty intense.
