Zombies are real. And we made them. Are you prepared for the zombie apocalypse? The Smith family is, with the help of a few marines. When an airborne "zombie" plague is released, bringing civilization to a grinding halt, the Smith family, Steven, Stacey, Sophia, and Faith, take to the Atlantic to avoid the chaos. The plan is to find a safe haven from the anarchy of infected humanity. What they discover, instead, is a sea composed of the tears of survivors and a passion for bringing hope.

Contains multiple characters hitting on a thirteen-year-old girl. Contains indications that her father is super okay with that...
Time to figure out how to delete Audible content from my account.

For the rest... he seems to forget which jokes and pop culture references he's already used? The same ones show up multiple times in the book.

Narrator is great, good accents and pacing, reads LOLcats as "el-oh-el cats" though...

After centuries of stasis, the island kingdom of Charis began to defy the edicts of the Church of God Awaiting - egged on, some say, by the mysterious warrior-monk Merlin Athawes. Now, in the wars and intrigues that have cascaded from Charis's declaration of independence, the populous Republic of Siddermark is sliding into chaos.

Narrator needs to pull it back about ten notches.

What did you like best about Midst Toil and Tribulation? What did you like least?

Fantastic series.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Nevermind he can't pronounce anything correctly. He just can't stop pushing so much drama into every. Single. Word.
People making fun of hardcore Shakespearean actors don't cheese this hard.

Was Midst Toil and Tribulation worth the listening time?

I couldn't finish it. The narrator made it too cringe-worthy.
