    "Loved the first book"
    Would you try another book from Steven C. Bird and/or Patrick Freeman?

    yes I would provided return is still an option, 1st book I really liked, this one not so muc.


    Has The Guardians: The New Homefront, Volume 2 turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no, if there is a third edition I would be willing to give it a listen


    How could the performance have been better?

    from the start it turned me off and I could not finish it


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    my Thoughts; What Happened, did some else write this one ? is this author a 1 hit wonder


    Any additional comments?

    For some reason I cannot return it and I will have to call about this problem, I go through a minimum of 7 books a week, I spend lots of money and expect better

    Story
    "Should Have Quit After First Book"
    What disappointed you about The Guardians: The New Homefront, Volume 2?

    Painful, implausible dialogue. Might read better, but tedious as an audible.


    What could Steven C. Bird have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Maintain the clarity and the purpose of the first book. Make the instructions less obvious. Re-write and edit dialog until it sounds like a conversation that real people would have.


    Did Patrick Freeman do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yeah, not bad. He obviously didn't have much to work with though.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Guardians: The New Homefront, Volume 2?

    Stick with one story that has it's own back stories. The two separate story lines just does not make sense, and since I'm not reading another of these books it matters not if they come together later.

    "Good series. Reader is ok."

    I was a bit reluctant to get this series because the narration reviews. I agree that its not the best narration I have listened too, but its not that bad. By the third book I didn't even mind it a bit.

    "Narration and story stunk"

    Narration was super annoying and nasally. Story lacked any depth at all. Wish I wouldn't have purchased.

    "Great continuation"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a great story, loved the detail, loved the characters.

    Enjoyed the detail which for me at times seemed too much but that also added to the story. I liked how Steven C. Boyd kept the story to the survivors and mixed the lead characters.

    I was eager to finish so I could move on to book 3 - that good.

    "Even better than the first."

    Loved it was fantastically written. You could have picked up this book without ever reading the first one and not be lost. Also didn't rehash a lot of stuff from the first book. was a great performance by the narrator too. keep up the good work can't wait for the next one.

    "Post apocalyptic fun listen with a few good twists"

    I own all the Kindle editions it was a good read the narrator did a very good job but personally I would like to see both a female and a male. Doing those respective voices.
    On that note Patrick Freeman still did an excellent job with the various dialects and regional voice and language subtleties.
    Plus you always could tell male from female .
    did not like the cliff hanger, but that's life.
