    I loved the excitement of this book! ups, downs, racing around, what will happen next? it was fabulous


    What did you like best about this story?

    Lee Harper is a character who is believable. He is very human.


    What does Christian Rummel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The voice was spectacular. I found my heart racing in the area where he was excited.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    One man, one mission, undefeatable odds

    Story
    "As bad as the first in the series"

    I bought it with along with the first in the series, and after listening to the first in the series I wouldn't have listened to this but I already had it and was hoping it would get better ... it didn't. Here's what I wrote about the first book in the series.
    "I wanted to like this story, had a lot of good story pieces but the writing was quite inane for a main character (Lee) who is supposed to be a highly trained battle hardened special forces type soldier. Instead the main character (Lee) moves from one self-inflicted crisis to another and only escapes due to stupid luck and contrived circumstances. Lee is clearly not a highly trained soldier and is a slow learner who consistently makes stupid decisions without any strategic thinking. This makes what could have been a good story line difficult to stick with."
    well, those are still my summation of the book/series.

    Story
    "Some Real Dumb Choices"

    The first book was fantastic, 5x5x5, but the second, as other reviewers have pointed out, had some utterly idiotic choices. Why? I don't know. Stupidity. The author showed in book one that the author was capable of writing a good logical story (and a really good semi scientific believable "zombie" concept too) with no holes. But book 2? I continually hoped the lead would just die to pay for his sheer reckless, other-endangering stupidity.

    I am really sick of authors that introduce plot idiocy just to pad out a story

    Story
    "Almost non stop great action"

    Lee has to prove himself to the survivors and goes to try to recover supplies from his bunker which results in many, many twists, turns and surprises, which never seem to end. There is a tremendous amount of action but not the senseless kind. The author brings us into Lee Hardens head and shows the inner workings of how this professional soldier becomes a beast of a war machine. Because the inner personality of Lee is described you can identify strongly with the character and it doesn't become a superficial action story. You cheer when he becomes angry, thoughtful when he ponders, its almost as if you feel the pain when he gets hurt. Again, he is not perfect and suffers the consequences, reminded me of John McClane in Die Hard, all beaten and busted up.

    The author and narration are just really good, everything works. This is not your trashy zombie tale, but quality work.

    Story
    "Darwin has turned the other cheek."
    Would you try another book from D. J. Molles and/or Christian Rummel?

    I already have the next two books to go through... So I would have to say yes. I was dumb enough to pick up the soap twice already, so I might as well head to the showers for next two books.


    Which character – as performed by Christian Rummel – was your favorite?

    Over all most of the characters area great except for the main. Sounds like he needs more fibre in his diet. Every time he speaks is sounds like he is making a Captain's Log.


    Do you think The Remaining: Aftermath needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, although it already does. If it did not, I would still have two credits remaining in my account. Maybe the next book will be a little bit better.


    Any additional comments?

    I think the overall premise of the story is excellent.

    Story
    "Dumbest pro. elite soldier ever."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    How many times can a person choose the stupidest option available?


    What was most disappointing about D. J. Molles’s story?

    I understand people do dumb things, but doing them over and over especially in a extreme high risk situations is not.


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

    Great as always


    Was The Remaining: Aftermath worth the listening time?

    NO

    Story
    "Book 2 of a 5+ series of one story"

    See my review of The Remaining: Fractured for the full review, but suffice it to say, if you've come this far and like the ride, just burn another couple of credits and get back to the same spot you are in now. Not much is resolved, not much is wrapped up, but it's like the ever-ready bunny, it just keeps going and going.

    Story
    "Mistakes were made."
    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I will not ruin anything of the plot, however I think the government's decision to put Lee in charge of rebuilding the ruined country may have been a huge mistake. I fear for humanity's survival. Lee tends to make poor judgement calls whenever he can. He needs a secondary character to say: "Lee, we may need to rethink this decision because people are depending on us". That is just my two cents.


    What does Christian Rummel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Good reading, honestly Rummel's narration is what keeps me listening.


    Any additional comments?

    I am enjoying this series for the most part as I am fond of post apocalyptic stories, but I often fast forward to get to the next chapter based on parts of the plot.

    Story
    "im still in awe at how great these books are"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Remaining: Aftermath to be better than the print version?

    I consider that Christian Rummel is a God in the world of narrators


    What did you like best about this story?

    The whole flippin thing!!!


    What does Christian Rummel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Oh m y God!!! He is the life blood of this most awesome story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, every single friggin time that Jerry speaks in any of the books I wanted to transport into the book just so I could kill him. I'm still amazed that Mr. Rummel can read the captain as so likeable and Jerry as such a froggin worm. Now that takes talent.


    Any additional comments?

    If you haven't listened to Christian Rummel read before then now is the time, because this story of survival and perseverance is amazing.
