Publisher's Summary

A trip to the Pacific Northwest is interrupted by a deadly virus. Fighting to survive, fighting to reunite, Ryan Brant hasn't seen some of his family for 18 years and is flying into Seattle Washington to attend the family reunion. The Brant family is spread out across the country and all are headed to the reunion; some travel by car, some by air, and one in a high-end luxury Motor Coach. The South African Flu has brought the world to its knees, and the vaccine the CDC created has just made the situation worse, much worse. Join them as they try to find each other in a world that has collapsed around them and millions die of the flu, or wish they had.

    "Couldn't finish"

    Rarely is there a apocalypse book that I simply can't finish/don't care to finish. This is one of them. May appeal to others - I am known to be picky.

    "Who reads like this ???"

    The story isn't bad, but I have never listened to a book with such a stiff and bad narration. I barely made it through this

    "Big family zombie book . Nice story"

    What i great zombie read it was at times hard to keep up with everyone but that got better. The story is solid the zombies are pretty cool different then the normal. Seems everything got thrown at this group of people trying to survive

    Some times the Narrator some times had the voice to him like he was trying to sale me something

    Overall Great zombie story would recommend

    "Horrible."

    Impossible to finish. The narrator is like zombie John Wayne on heroine. Boring. Annoying. Dont waste your cash.

    Story
    "One of the worst books I've listen too"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you like listening to technical manuals then maybe you find something in this book worth your time


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It felt to me like listening to a book 15 years ago when audio books were not so available and the narrators were not very good. Tone was flat, no difference when switching between characters and just not good enough.


    Any additional comments?

    Save your money, please don't waste it on this.

    "Could not make it through this"

    This is more a review of military weapons and an RV than an apocalypse story.

    Story
    "well-written telling of an apocalyptic situation."

    A zombie-like virus that was the result of overzealous pharmaceutical companies is ripping through the United States. All of this is happening while the Bryant family are traveling from all over to get to the greater Seattle area to meet up for a family reunion. They are thrown into the mix of these “diseased/zombies” while they attempt to find each other, hoping that everyone makes it. Thankfully this family is incredibly adept at surviving.

    Narration was done by Joseph C. Wilson who does a wonderful job with this story. Yes, I wish that there were more voices, but that’s nearly impossible to do with just how many characters there are within this story. The quality was perfect and his voice is wonderful to listen to.

    So, I mentioned earlier that there are a lot of characters. There are so many characters that the author has a disclaimer at the intro of this book with a link to his website where you can read all of the character bios to hopefully help you keep up with all of them throughout the story.

    Now, normally having this many people to follow and understand would take away from the story, but I think that DeBryan did a wonderful job pulling all of their stories together into this mosaic explaining what was going on with the outbreak throughout the United States. You get to see the outbreak from many different viewpoints and see how it affects different people differently.

    Normally, with an apocalyptic tale like this, you get one (or maybe one small family) outlook on what is happening in the world around them. With Family Reunion, you get a ton! Which leads to an incredibly unique story.

    Overall, once you wrap your brain around the different family members and each one of their stories, this is a well-written telling of an apocalyptic situation. The interweaving of the stories made this book for me.

    Audiobook was provided for review by the author.

    Please find this complete review and many others at my review blog

    Story
    "Pretty good end of the world book"
    What made the experience of listening to Family Reunion: When the Apocalypse Happens Only One Thing Matters...Family the most enjoyable?

    A large variety of characters approaching survival in a lot of different ways. Some are trained and adept at surviving. Some stumble through it all and some don't make it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Fairly realistic reactions by well developed characters make this an enjoyable read. The family aspect is a nice touch.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to this over the course of a couple of days and always wanted to continue the story.


    Any additional comments?

    This is setup for one or more sequels. They should be good if this book is any indication.

    "Poor reading/fair story"

    Many of the stories inconstancies could've been overlooked if the reader did not read in such a wooden fashion.

    "A great fit to a great story!"

    The narrator reads at a slow pace. Normally this would bother me, but it really works well for this novel. And the novel? Whoa- GREAT, nonstop action. Definitely recommend this book/audible.
