The Remaining | [D. J. Molles]

The Remaining

In a steel-and-lead-encased bunker 20 feet below the basement level of his house, a soldier waits for his final orders. On the surface, a plague ravages the planet, infecting over 90% of the populace. The bacterium burrows through the brain, destroying all signs of humanity and leaving behind little more than base, prehistoric instincts. The infected turn into hyper-aggressive predators, with an insatiable desire to kill and feed. Someday soon, the soldier will have to open the hatch to his bunker, and step out into this new wasteland, to complete his mission....

    "The best zombie/apocalypse to date"

    This book series sets a new standard for post apocalyptic and survival stories. Guaranteed to be a film in the future. There is no way to be disappointed with this series.

    Story
    "Realistic post apocalyptic thriller."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. The main character is believable as a soldier, his actions are consistent with his job description in the book. The settings are realistic and the tone of the book is appropriately grim.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tango the German Shepard. Handy to have a dog during the apocolypse.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the small group of survivors meet Jack the sniper.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could have.


    Any additional comments?

    Original characters, original zombie like infected creatures and a story with a twist right off the rip. Also it's realistic in that everyone is not a battle hardened bad ass or a completely useless coward. There are characters who are ordinary people and they behave like ordinary people, adults and kids who make mistakes, learn and grow. Or die because it's a very dangerous world for the remaining.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, its one of the most engaging as well as favorite books in my library. as a Huge Mitch Rapp and Jack Ryan fan, and the end of there series, i was having a hard time finding new character and authors to love, i was very skeptical about D. J. Molles at first, even after listened to the sample. i decided to bite the bullet and try it, and now i'm hooked. DJ wont be able to write these fast enough.


    What about Christian Rummel’s performance did you like?

    Narrator Christian Rummel is one of the best ive heard so far, the way he gives tone, depth and emotion to the characters greatly improves the story experience.

    Story
    "So Many Bad Decissions = So Annoying"

    The concept is fantastic, the narrator is good but the main character, for a highly trained combatant trusted with the future of mankind, makes one bad choice after another. By the end of the book I was tearing my hair out he had made so many dumb decision's. Not sure if I am game to start the second book through fear of going bald.

    Story
    "Hang In There; It Is A Good Story"
    If you could sum up The Remaining in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, exasperating and credit-worthy


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

    Of course, our flawed hero. I also really like the development of Angela's character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I listed to all 4 in the series thru.


    Any additional comments?

    OK. The first time I listed to this book, I returned it. I could not get over some of Lee's stupid decisions. It exasperated me. The second time around I expected a flawed hero, if with all his special training, and the story became exciting and I could not put it down. If you like the first book, prepare your credits to buy all four. His decisions in the first book make a lot more sense at the end of the 4th book. The 4 books read as one long story with odd placed cliff hangers but the ending of the 4th book series was very satisfactory but with room for more story next. Can't wait for the next book!

    Story
    "walking dead sort of"
    Would you listen to The Remaining again? Why?

    Fun 'read'. Exciting, suspenseful. I listen while I walk, found myself moving along with the story, i.e., careful, silent steps, breath in, out slowly, breath in, out slowly, take the shot. Nope, no gun, but I laughed at myself and knew I was hooked. Highly recommend both story and narrator.

    Story
    "A predictable story where adjectives are scarce"

    I really wanted to like this story but found myself growing more and more distant from its plot. The most grating part of the book was its use of military jargon in lieu of any type of description. We aren't concerned about zombies in the city but, instead, "target-rich environments" and such. This speak is fine in the military. I find it oddly amusing at first, being a vet. But eventually the lack of color becomes dull and mind-numbing. The lack of creativity only gets more painful as the story carries on. Just before I called it quits, our protagonist was dealing with a guy that -- I kid you not -- was eloquently named "hammer guy." Really?

    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the best, if not the best zombie novel iv listened to (and I have a bunch). Story line is awesome.... Narrator does an awesome job....good from stat to finish. I cant wait for book 5 but the knuckleheads in charge keep bumping the release date. As of now its set for early 2015.

    "Poor Story"
    What disappointed you about The Remaining?

    The main character is suppose to be a army ranger with combat experience. Based on his actions in the story and his reaction to danger he is anything but a ranger with combat experience.


    Would you ever listen to anything by D. J. Molles again?

    Maybe


    What about Christian Rummel’s performance did you like?

    I liked it.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Remaining?

    The entire story


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a vet with combat experience. The author needs to write stories that don't revolve around the military.
