    "Unique twists start to unfold"

    If you liked the first book in this series, you'll for sure like the second book (Aftermath). I just finished book 3 and I'm moving confidently to book 4, knowing it'll be a good one.

    "Loved it!"

    This is a continuation of a great story! I love this kind of thing anyway, but the author of these novels really did a great job depicting one possible way that a SHTF scenario might play out. Great characterization. Great heroes. I really loved this book. The narrator is amazing, too!

    "Great Story"

    What's not to like about Captain Harden a kick ass soldier in a world gone to crap. Like most zombie stories, the creatures fall back as simple background story and the real fight is between the humans. This of course is why I like the genera so much, all about survival. I look forward to continuing the series.

    "LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!!"

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this series and can't wait for the next installment. Christian Rummel is a wonderful auditor and gives the characters their own tones and personalities!!!!!! The character's are given depth and you will find yourself cheering some (LEE!!!!!!) and cursing others (JERRY!!!!!). Have listened to this four book series several times......can't get enough....need more REMAINING!!!!!!!

    "EDGE OF YOUR SEAT ACTION PACKED HORROR"

    28 DAYS + WALKING DEAD + ZOMBIE FALLOUT + DAY BY DAY ARMAGEDDON = THE REMAINING!

    AFTER SPENDING THE YEAR WADING THROUGH HORRIBLE ZOMBIE/APOCALYPTIC BOOKS I FINALLY FEEL THE WASTED CREDITS REDEEMED BY D.J. MOLLES THE REAMING SERIES. THOUGHT I WAS NOT GOING TO LIKE THIS SERIES AS MOST BOOKS INVOLVE EX MILITARY TRYING TO SURVIVE DURING A ZOMBIE OUTBREAK BUT WOW WAS I GLAD I TOOK A CHANCE. I HAVE FINISHED ALL FOUR BOOKS IN LESS THAN TWO WEEKS. I COULD NOT PUT THE BOOK DOWN.

    LEE (MAIN CHARACTER) IS MY HERO. I WOULD LIKE THIS BOOK TO BE MADE INTO A MOVIE OR TELEVISION SERIES.

    ZOMBIES IN THE STORY ARE HORRIFYING. SCENARIOS INVOLVING HUMANS ARE HORRIFYING. THIS IS A HORROR BOOK!

    NARRATOR WAS EXCELLENT!!!!!

    "awesome follow-up! couldn't stop listening!"
    Where does The Remaining: Aftermath rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    so far, the first two books rank really high on my favorite end of the world / zombie stories. this series is definitely in my top 5.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Remaining: Aftermath?

    whew! there were a few! but i can't say b/c it'd spoil other listener's experience.


    Any additional comments?

    this is an excellent follow-up! no sophomore slump at all!

    as the story opens, lee has to prove he is what he says he is- someone who truly wants to help. lee and those volunteering to help him must find some gas so they can make it to one of his bunker. i like how nothing comes easy. once again, i must mention pacing and storytelling. most authors in zombie stories brush off the act of getting gas but not d.j. mollies! he believably and realistically builds tension around the act of looking for cars with gas and siphoning it. you can feel the tension and nervousness the characters feel. i mean i felt myself being really quiet while listening to that part. i would like to thank the editor for helping d.j. know just how much time and description should be spent on the different parts of the story.

    as the story progresses, we learn more about milo, and he truly is a vile psychopath. lee and milo are heading into a confrontation, but will lee's mission outweigh his feelings for milo? book 2 further develops some of the characters at camp ryder and introduces new characters. i liked the supporting characters.you know the author does a good job when you actually loathe some of the characters he introduces you to.

    i must say most end of the world / zombie have a crazy christian pastor, who is usually an over the top cartoony caricature, but d.j. mollies does it correctly- a man who knows just what to say and when, not preachy at all. realistic while holding an m-4. lol

    once again, the pacing of the story is superb! so far, these first two books have some of the best pacing i've listened to, and to be honest, i think that's one of the reasons why these two books have shot up my list of all time favorite end of the world / zombie stories.

    talking about zombies, i really like the direction the author is taking. for once, the infected really are something to fear even with machine guns.

    there is a shocking moment in this story, and i had to rewind b/c i was like what the heck just happened.

    i was extremely satisfied with how this book closed, albeit a little sad, and i am looking forward to see how things progress in the 3rd book.

    Where does The Remaining: Aftermath rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    middle 1/3


    What did you like best about this story?

    Combat scenes and still the search for resources.


    Any additional comments?

    Just really fun reads. Lead character is becoming more compelling. The dynamic between Lee, Bus, and Harper is really believable.

    Any additional comments?

    I am really enjoying this series. The author is very creative and the narrator does an excellent job. I'm at a loss for all the people who's reviews criticize the author's character development as being "idiotic". It's a fictional book for crying out loud. If you want realism find a different genre. Kudos to the author.
