The End was just the beginning of the new world…
Only six weeks have passed since a super-EMP attack devastated the United States, but already, life has changed dramatically. Most of America has become a wasteland filled with starving bands of people, mobs and gangs. Millions are dead and millions more are suffering, with no end in sight.
For Gordon, Samantha, Sebastian, Cruz, and Barone, the turmoil and chaos they dealt with in the early weeks after the attack will seem trivial in comparison to the collapse of society that plays out before their eyes. Uncertainty abounds as they all travel different paths in search of a safe place to call home. The only thing that is definite is that The Long Road will take its toll on all of them.

I cannot understand how this book gets a good review from anybody - one bad cliche after another, poor writing, no, terrible writing. Good narration. Sentence after sentence that does not logically follow the one before it. No character development at all. The head of the the drug cartel is described as "deciding he would not be poor, and soon he became the go to guy for people to get anything they want" done - total character development. I tried to like this book because I like the genre, impossible, it is a bad book and nothing redeems it.
Not recommended, not one second of it.
Chilling with a book is my favorite thing to do.
I don't know what they were thinking. It was like listening to a speed reader. I couldn't listen to the whole book. Can't believe I paid for this one too.

I don't have a bunker and I would starve in 2 1/2 days, but I like to listen to people who do and wouldn't.
For those who enjoy a vivid apocalyptic survival based journey you will not be disappointed, but CAUTION - YOU WILL EXPERIENCE A LOSS OF SLEEP. This story, books one and two, my fellow end of times story seekers, took me on a vividly written and narrated journey that started when I hit the play button and ended when the nice man from Audible thank me for my purchase.To the person who masterfully describe ever evolving happiness, sadness, hopefulness, disparity, anger, and compassion thank you and very nicely done you incredible word putter together-er!
I can't, too many to list.
All around good job.
Book two, father faces the unthinkable.
Please hurry with book 3!
A great story leading into another story. I love this series.
The narrator started off reading this book really fast. Just as I was irritated and almost put it down the problem was fixed and it became the enjoyable read just I was hoping for, as the first book.
Story made me laugh and cry as I grew attached to the characters
I couldnt wait for the next book! Was not disappointed by this book at all. I am glad that the initial issue of the narrator reading too fast was fixed. I recommend this book and the entire series!
Love Love Sci-fi, TEOTWAWKI, and Mysteries.
There was 1 incredibly annoying part that just about ruined the book, I only hope book 3 justifies it. If not, then this would be the first time i ever read a book with such rich opportunities be ruined by the actions in 1 paragraph.
good story representing one possible outcome of a catastrophic event in the US and the struggle for power in the aftermath.
it presents a challenging arguement about ethics and how to function in a society that doesn't have any rule of law.
As a father this book hit a bad cord with me. It may be a good thing for you. I think it means you care about the characters. I don't won't to ruin the book but as a father I wish I had not read this book. I give it five stars because my problem with it is mine only. It is a great book besides that.
Pretty good book. Some of the books in the genre can be kind of cheesy but this is definitely one of the better ones.
Not sure why some of the negative reviews are so strident. I'm guessing there's some kind of prepper forum somewhere with prepping geeks fighting about overly nuanced details of such a story - kind of like star wars nerds obsessing about similar petty details in that story.
Regardless, it's a good book. Not overdone one way or another, not too brutal, not too sappy. It actually reads like something out of the fall of Rome. The author has drawn on real life history and how cities would become isolated little city-states, generals would go rogue with their entire armies in tow, and so on.
The delivery of the story is very much in the style of someone reading the book themselves, With no thought to spacing or change in tone between characters.
