Clear start and finish no shitty cliff-hanger, jump the shark ending. End to existing storyline and open to new horizons. Great work, I thought this would be a trilogy- clearly this series has more to tell and is great with new challenges and enemies for the team to dominate. Purchase with confidence !!!!

Like a fragile house of cards in a hurricane, Presidents, Premiers, entire governments and their ruling bodies disappeared instantly. Some had ensconced themselves in deep underground bunkers or remained holed up in fortified strongholds, but history would tell that most had been swallowed up by the dead - never to be heard from again. On that last normal Saturday in July, while an unknown virus indiscriminately wreaks destruction and death to all four points of the compass.

All good things must come to an end, Constant Listener, and not even Stephen King can write a story that goes on forever. The tale of Roland Deschain's relentless quest for the Dark Tower has, the author fears, sorely tried the patience of those who have followed it from its earliest chapters. But attend to it a while longer, if it pleases you, for this volume is the last, and often the last things are best.

If you are expecting a happy ending stop now and make up one of your own. King is notorious for the endings we know as what would 'really' happen not what we 'want' to happen.

In a near-deserted coastal village, odd things are happening. Strangers are asking questions about the town's recluse. A local hunter discovers naked footprints in the snow. The stray dog population has ceased to exist. And with winter's most powerful weapon bearing down, things are about to become much, much worse. A werewolf book. Not a romance. Not at all.

Loads of action but I did not feel the building of anticipation or excitement I usually feel when listening. Although my heart rate was steady the whole time - Great read. I have already purchased book 2 and 3. Huge Sean R fan but he really cocked up the Neufie/Irish accents. The accents were inconsistent and seemed to come and go a bit distracting but it was still a great Sean R. Performance. My friends from the east will have you pissing in your pants with laughter just hearing them with the 'my son's' and the 'Jesus' this and that so some of that is lost here. Overall good read.

After recovering Patient Zero, Alpha must escape Africa to end the ZA once and for all. But they can feel the hot breath of a reinforced and vengeful Spetsnaz team on their necks - and there can be no escaping the reckoning of an ultimate sniper showdown between Ali and Vasily, and an incomparably brutal iron-cage Texas death match between Predator and Misha. For the first time, all the teams will come together and must fight as brothers for any chance of making it back to Britain. And only one thing is certain - not everyone is walking away from this one.

For Jillybean, moments of utter happiness and pure sanity are as fleeting and wonderful as sun-showers at a July picnic. Her time with Granny Annie is one such moment, but as always it ends far too quickly and she is once more thrust back into a world of crushing loneliness and endless despair.

With 99.7% of the Earth's population dead and gone, the few who remain struggle to survive in an empty world. The scattered. The leftovers. These are their stories. Meet Mitch, a father infected with the zombie virus. He knows he has 24 hours until he turns. Maybe a little more if he's lucky. He's been a half-assed father. Checked out. Distracted. Can he find a path to redemption in his final hours? Can he make sure his kids are taken care of before time runs out?

Where does The Last Escape: A Dystopian Society in a Post Apocalyptic World rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top 10

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Last Escape: A Dystopian Society in a Post Apocalyptic World?

I am binge reading so all books are meshing into one epic saga.

If you could rename The Last Escape: A Dystopian Society in a Post Apocalyptic World, what would you call it?

Love the name

Any additional comments?

I was drawn in by the zombie carrot but these "infected" are not the only selling point of the story. There is a Game of Thrones type political scramble where everyone thinks they would be a better leader and are plotting against each other as things go to heck. Although it is not nearly as complex as GOT, the authors are obviously learning to work together the characters are developing nicely and the plots are getting more complex and intertwined.

Survival in Man’s Second Dark Age...Three hundred years after the fall of society, the last fragments of civilization are clinging to life, living in the ruins of the ancient cities in nearly-medieval conditions. Technology has been reduced to legend, monsters roam the forests, and fear reigns supreme. But that is just the beginning...The wind-borne spores are spreading, disfiguring men and twisting their minds, turning them into creatures that threaten to destroy the townships.

What made the experience of listening to The Last Survivors the most enjoyable?

I really enjoy anything by Bobby Adair, I have not read Piperbrook before but I had difficulty differentiating between their writing styles. This is a great start to what I am expecting to be a great series. I will also be looking at this Piperbrook person a little more closely now too. LOL

What other book might you compare The Last Survivors to and why?

Mark Tufo's Lycan Fallout series is similar, written in the same future time when all technology is gone and superstition and 'religion' rule.

Which character – as performed by Sean Runnette – was your favorite?

I like them all. sometimes hard to figure out who is talking.

If you could take any character from The Last Survivors out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Firstly, they would have to pay.... probably not a good dinner date....most of the people in the book would end up with a boot in their arse for one reason or the other.

Any additional comments?

It is a great apocalyptic story line with "zombies" but the story is set well AFTER the fall of society, when our current day technology is all myth and magic. The people in power use religion and might to control a population hoping to evolve and will do anything to keep them subservient. I have already downloaded the rest of the series based on this first book knowing i will not be disappointed.

I prefer the books to have longer run times but since there are quite a few books in the series it makes up for it.
