They survived a journey across the wasteland to bring hope back to their friends and loved ones. But when Eric, Elaine, and Neil reach the seaside town of Bandon, one of the last bastions of civilization to have survived the apocalyptic worldwide blight, they find it empty. Abandoned. Everyone they know and care for has left.
Or been taken.
Only the smallest clues as to their whereabouts are left behind. But it is enough to send the trio heading north, sailing from town to town along the Alaskan coast, finding allies and confronting enemies along the way. Until finally they find themselves forced to enter a crumbling subterranean colony to rescue those they'd come for.
But once they enter The Pit, the lives they've known and the people they've trusted will change - forever.

Mark Westfield is another bad narrator. He sounds like a deeper voiced William Shatner. Just minus a personality. Mark Westfield sounds like the guy from the monotone guy from the Clearasil commercials. If you're thinking about buying this audiobook, do yourself a favor and listen to the preview. This guy has less enthusiasm to his voice than a wall. Just cause the book is about the world being a dead wasteland, doesn't mean the narrator should like his soul is dead too.
Also, stop with the crappy sound effects. They were so cheesy and completely unnecessary and didn't help bring life to the book.
I loved this book and this series but I really do not understand the ending. The story is cryptic and leaves a lot to be desired for the ending. Maybe it's just me, but I don't get it.
I listened to the first four books because my wife purchased them for me. I was astonished at the authors information that explains himself to be highly experienced with firearms and outdoor craft. The books and the main character display a Hollywood understanding of those skills needed to survive in the world imagined by the author. The situations and decisions made by the main character are frustratingly laughable. Save your money
YES! The way the book is written in the first/3rd person forces the narrator read like that and its super freaking annoying sometimes. Instead of the narrator just reading and allowing the conversation to flow... the narrator is forced to read the conversation followed by "he said" or "she said" The narrator only needs to say who says something if its explicitly clear who is talking.
Dont have a favorite character, I'm not sure the book is written to have a favorite character.
If the book(s) arent written the way they were/are, the performance would be dramatically smoother.
No, not as an independent movie. The series could work... but I would much prefer one or two other series be made into movies before this one.
I'm really not sure if the book needs to be slightly adjusted in the way its written AND the narrator needs to be changed or if the narrator just needs to read it without the 'he said, she said' narration.
If it weren't boring and the narrator flat, monotone and dry. I had to push through to the end of this book. The story got some better in the middle but there was very little action and the story was WAY out there. I do not recommend this book.
No. I've read lots of books in this genre so I am prepared for bad ones every now and then.
Trying stay alive in a blighted world is hard enough. Throw in enemies and an environment that challenges your survival skills and you have a gripping tale. Noah Mann has created a tale of adventure in his "Bugging Out" series. Very entertaining, one point off for a monotone narration.
