    "Didn't live up to its expectations"

    I thought the idea of the story was great. But the author would go into detail on some things but then skip over major plot lines. It also had no ending .. and part two was a totally stand alone book so there really was no ending.

    I spend about 2 1/2 hrs a day commuting to work, so I have a good amount of Audible time. I love sci-fi, post apocalypse, and zombie books.

    "Great concept and enjoyable story"

    I really enjoyed it, and was thrilled to know that there was a second book. But a warning...the second book takes place 100 years in the future, but was written by the author in 1986 and has 28 books in that series. Star Wars type deal. Both books are good (although second is a bit dated with super cheese macho dialog). But the second does not really talk about many of the characters from the first book that you want to know about. So I can only hope that Mr. Robbins is planning some books that take place between the two. I am having surgery and will have 6-8 off from work so maybe I'll read the other 27 books! :)

    "Doomsday 1"

    Started out good, but got weird at end. No conclusion yet and I assume there are sequels.

    Story
    "Barely worth the time(Trying to avoid spoilers)"
    What was most disappointing about David Robbins’s story?

    The premise has merit but the execution of the initial plot lines is awful. It starts like most End Of Civilization stories with things going from bad to worse as you meet the main characters. But as each one finds themselves in the expected tough situation cliffhanger, it just ends there! You find out a few chapters later that this character or that one arrived safely..Ummmmm OK. Great.
    As it progresses it just gets..strange. It seems that most of the main characters are a bit...odd. ( Without putting any spoilers out there, I have one word..Thor) Which might not be so bad except you are constantly reminded they were chosen based on their psych profile..


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The Narrator was mechanical, monotone and made a poor attempt a changing up the characters voices with any consistancy

    "reasonable story/poor narrator"

    There are few audible books I cannot finish, this was one of them.......and solely put off by the narrator. There are some narrators who when reading the female parts put on a voice that makes the female characters sound stupid, moronic, slow, etc etc, and this spoiled it for me and I could not keep listening. Do they really think women sound like that?

    "Great plot"

    One of the best audio I've listen to in a long time, great plot, forward moving story line. I plan to read the other books in the series since they are not in audio.

    "total crap"

    Dear Mr. Robbins, please do the world a favor and never write another book.

    This is the worst book I have ever read, and I am not hard to please. Ren and Stimpy seems profound compared to this book. I could not take anything seriously in this work of garbage. Crap story, disconnected characters and an abrupt ending - save your credits folks.

    "Entertaining Read/Listen"

    I was weary of getting this in Audio book based upon a few of the comments, but found this to be a very entertaining book. The narrator did a very good job as well which made it very enjoyable as well. I would recommend this to someone looking for a fictional but not a realistic nor a fantasy account of a doomsday scenario. It got pretty close to fantasy with one character but I found myself chuckling at certain points with pure joy at what was happening. The characters were good and a nice variety, loved how it bounced around from character to character at the beginning and left you hanging between the changing story lines. Yes, as others post the ending is very abrupt but knowing that going in I accepted it and now I look forward to the follow up books.

    "Sequels?"

    This is the type of SciFi I've always enjoyed. While the beginning was good, I, too, was disappointed as to how it ended. I do hope sequels are planned.
