Boomstick. Samurai bat. Motorcycle leather. And the will to live among the unliving. Augustus Berry lives a day-to-day existence comprised of waking up, getting drunk, and preparing for the inevitable day when "they" will come up the side of his mountain and penetrate his fortress. Living on the outskirts of a city and scavenging for whatever supplies remain after civilization died two years ago, Gus knows that every time he goes down into undead suburbia could be his last.

Where does Mountain Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Over the past 5 years I've become a real fan of Zombie Fiction. Mountain Man presents itself as a testosterone driven adult read rather than a "sparkling in the sun" fantasy love story. It was gritty and suspenseful like a zombie survival story should be. My background is East Coast Acadien Canada. Imagine my surprise when I recognized my home setting described. Made it that more enjoyable for me. Guns. Knives. Axes. Booze. Incredible physical pain and laughter. Constantly looking over your shoulder for the hungry DeadHead lurking around the corner

What about R. C. Bray’s performance did you like?

The performance was second to none. Each character was clearly presented and he went over the top with the crazy. He wasn't shy about anything. The pace of the reading was just right with natural pauses between chapters. It didn't feel rushed through.

Any additional comments?

I'm always glad to see Canadians writing about Canada instead of settling with having to make it some remote American state so they will sell more books. Thank you Keith C. Blackmore for a great read and to Audible for giving the author the opportunity to show off great Canadian talent!

"My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole. I get excessively drunk at inappropriate times, disregard social norms, indulge every whim, ignore the consequences of my actions, mock idiots and posers, sleep with more women than is safe or reasonable, and just generally act like a raging dickhead. But, I do contribute to humanity in one very important way: I share my adventures with the world."

well... I just finished "reading/listening to" War and Peace. I really needed something mindless and funny.

The stories are raunchily funny, I have to admit. JUST DON'T LET HIM READ HIS OWN AUDIOBOOK!!! THIS DUDE WAS DRUNK AS HE TRIED TO READ HIS OWN WORK. He slurred and sped through most of it and I hardly understood a word.

COME ON!

If you can get past the idiot reading, you can actually enjoy the idiot's writing. It's funny.
