    "Good, Interesting story, OK narrator"
    Where does Uprising USA rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    upper middle portion, would have been higher with a better narrator, but the story made up for many of the narrators issues


    What other book might you compare Uprising USA to and why?

    Monster Hunter International


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Most of the time, but the narrator felt rushed at times, and he could have paused a moment when transitioning scenes


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh, especially some of the action movie like one liners


    Any additional comments?

    Having read the ebook I was able to really enjoy the audiobook, but the narrators different character voices were some times grating and the his rushed scene transitions get a little annoying but not enough to spoil the experience. I will be listening to this audiobook again in the future.

    "The narrator is awful"

    couldnt get through 1 hour of this book let alone the whole book. He is constantly referring to his wife as his bride and the narrators voice is annoying

    Story
    "A fun, fast paced zombie story."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Uprising USA to be better than the print version?

    I've not yet read the text version but they are what I usually prefer and intend to pick up a text copy at some point.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Uprising USA?

    I was getting a good chuckle out of the Sarah Palin incident. Any scene featuring Uncle Musket was awesome, especially any time he was talking about the bar maids.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    There were parts where the narrator annoyed me. This book was written in such a way that a specific audience (shooters) would connect with it. Many times through out the book it was apparent that the narrator had no idea about what he was reading. This is the ONLY thing about the book I didn't like.


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

    You'll love the smell of MOAB'd zombies in the morning.


    Any additional comments?

    Not a literary work of art, but it is a fun story non-the-less.

    Uprising USA takes the traditional shambler-type zombie/zombie plague story and runs with it, adding in a few unique twists that set it apart from everything else. It kept me coming back, wanting to hear just a little bit more, and at points it had chuckling out loud due to the humorous nature of some of the characters or incidents in the book.

    If you're looking for a fun time and some gun candy, try this one.

    "Not worth the Audible Credit"
    What disappointed you about Uprising USA?

    I only made through about an hour but...

    The Narration:
    - The narrator isn't consistent, he keeps changing George (the main characters) voice, and can't keep a consistent speed

    - It sounds like it was recorded in a basement.

    - The narrator sounds young, but the main character is old enough to have 6 kids, maybe he started young, I didn't get far enough to figure out how old the guy was.

    The Book:
    - Lack of character building, I didn't care about any of the characters let alone care what happened next

    - Lack of description, I've often complained when authors get overly descriptive, now I understand how much WORSE it is when the opposite is true, there is nothing to compel you to invest in the story


    Would you ever listen to anything by George Hill again?

    It would be a hard sell


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jason Clearfield?

    Sean Runnette, he's age appropriate, and can pull off the snarky sarcasm I think the author was going for

    "Bad! Bad! Bad!!!"
    Would you try another book from George Hill and/or Jason Clearfield?

    No


    What didn’t you like about Jason Clearfield’s performance?

    It sounds like it was recorded on a personal PC with a dollar store microphone!!!


    What character would you cut from Uprising USA?

    All


    Any additional comments?

    I am surprised Audible is selling such a low quality audio book..
