Publisher's Summary

Neal managed to survive the initial weeks after an EMP decimated the grid and all critical infrastructures. Using his cunning, skills, and mindset, he navigated the harsh new landscape. Life became harder when the weeks turned to months but still he survived. As he settled into his new normal, complacency set in with it. At first everything was fine, but then the deadly realities came to his doorstep. When tragedy struck all he wanted to do was give up, but a promise he had made kept him going, barely. He was a man without a home, a purpose, and, more importantly, hope. That changed one day along a desolate highway in the desert. There he'd discover a new reason for living.

    Story
    "Hit and miss"

    I have to admit I knew the book length when I bought it. Still, why no more story then what we get? I obviously like it since I want more. The character development is excellent. A reader makes an informed decision about liking or hating the people in this book.

    This is about average people and how they react to an apocalypse. They make a lot of mistakes - some that are fatal. The language is rough compared to other works by these authors.

    Without a spoiler, the FEMA/military actions are bizarre. I expect an explanation in a future book.

    Now the bad. The narrator seems to be immune to periods. Why waste time on breathing between sentences? Really, can't the producer hear the problems? How about some pace and inflection? It is tough to keep listening.

    This is a good story and worth the time. But perhaps it is better in this case to go with the printed version.

    "Hugely disappointed."

    Was really let down in every aspect of this book. Expected a lot more from these two authors.

    Story
    "Very Horrifying!"

    Too graphic, hard to believe our society is that fragile!
    The narrator was so so.
    Very sad, hard to finish when Neal found Beth dead.
    Is the United States really that weak?

    Story
    "Not what I was expecting"
    What disappointed you about Hope?

    The biggest issue was that its a 'short story' - not a full novel or series. These kinds of stories dont reach their full potential or any type of satisfactory 'ending point' in short stories. The only exception to that is if the short story is based off a character within a series.


    Would you be willing to try another book from A. American and G. Michael Hopf ? Why or why not?

    These are two of my favorite authors (A. American and the Going Home Series, G. Michael Hopf and the Long Road series).


    Have you listened to any of Joseph Morton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, Joseph Morton is 'tolerable' to me. He isnt my favorite or first choice, but he is FAR better than some I have listened to.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was written by two of my favorite authors.

    Story
    "boring"
    Would you try another book from A. American and G. Michael Hope and/or Joseph Morton?

    Yes, his surviving series is the best... this is a huge miss..


    Would you ever listen to anything by A. American and G. Michael Hope again?

    By A. American..


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His voice was harsh and mono tone. Hard to engage with him.

    Story
    "Couldn't make myself finish it."

    The story was lacking, and not even close the Home series by A. American. The true tragedy was the performance of the narrator.

    Story
    "Children's story"

    If you have a pre-teen (10-12 y/o) interested in post-apocalyptic fiction then they might find this interesting. However, an adult will likely conclude the story to be childish and the writing juvenile.

    "A story of real struggle"

    In the first half of the book I was slightly disappointed but it really got to me by the end. The thought that any government much less our government could be so cruel, or was it the Chinese 😡

    "booo"

    Story was weak, characters were paper thin, narrator was awful. A. American is a good writer, G. Michael Hopf is not. I should demand a refund.
