Good Folks, Wins, Losses, and a High Note

After the Outbreak was a great, long runtime audiobook on a non-zombie plague apocalypse centering on a group of (mostly) unrelated good people who come together to form a new family in the post plague world. The book to me falls into a rarer category of global plague apocalypse novels with no zombies, no conspiracies. In this tale, the plague globally kills 96% of the world population, decimating all infrastructure, law and order, in a matter of days.
The story begins with the individual character's stories, from all different walks of life, covering the fall, and their actions around the collapse, and their journeys to eventually coming together as a group some much later in the story than others). Once the main characters are together, the book mainly deals with getting set up for survival long term, and dealing with threats and danger as they arise.
The story never gets too dark or depressing, and is overall to me a feel good Apocalypse tale where you see good people surviving, behaving honorably, and overcoming bad people when they faced them. The story ends on a positive note, and feels complete, although I would be interested in reading more.
I received this audiobook as a review copy in exchange for an honest review, and am glad for the opportunity. The plague genre is a favorite of mine, going back to The Stand. It unfortunately is a subgenre not covered and covered well as much as other apocalyptic tales, so it is always a pleasure to find a good one like this.
The narration is very easy to listen to, fitting to the material, a good pace, and does an admiral job at distinguishing different characters. I do have a few other audiobooks with this narrator, and would definitely add more to my. I'd definitely get more from the author, but I'll need to wait for them to be published!

Good Series

I really enjoyed this Post-Apocalyptic series as it has no zombies eating humans. A virulent (Hosta) virus strikes the county causing people to die with flu like symptoms, turning gray and dies with grin on their face. Love all of the characters Nick, Liz, Charlie, Mia, Jessa, Matt, Daniel, Anne and Bethany. They are trying to survive, fighting bad guys trying to take the women and supplies and trying to get to White Pine Falls. Highly recommend if you like Post-Apocalyptic series without zombies. Look forward to his next series. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you

You can skip this one

Started out very promising but quickly took a turn towards mediocracy, at best.
Very weak character development, circular plot, bad writing. I must have heard the word "had" 38474292947437 times in the book. I'm not a grammar Nazi or anything but it was very annoying. There are many many many other books in this genre more deserving of your money. You WILL regret this story as it drags on and on and on.

Well Written EOTWAWKI Story

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This review is for the audio copy of After the Outbreak: The Complete Series by Dave Bowman and narrated by Andrew Tell. The characters were well-developed, believable and likeable. It was nice having all three books in one complete volume. The narrator did a great job with all the voices and made the story come alive. Overall a great story with excellent story telling.

Somewhat Entertaining

The longer this book went, it seemed like the writing got worse. I think the narrater contributed to some of the eye-rolling moments. He reads with sort of a sarcastic tone. Many of the conversations were not believable, in my opinion. I kept thinking how no one I know would say this or describe things this way. If you can suspend your disbelief that all of society falls into calamity and chaos-including organized gang formation and territory wars-within 2 days of a virus outbreak that has a 3-day incubation period, then some of the story is somewhat entertaining. I was not entertained enough to get the next stories in the series, though.

Fantastic PA book.

Really enjoyed this book. It wasn’t as predictable as most in this Genre. Was great that it wasn’t violence porn. My only problem was the characters got over the deaths of their families a little too quickly timeline wise. I highly recommend this Series.

Fantastic Series

I loved this book series. The narrator was awesome. His voices and emotions were spot on. He is a great storyteller. The books were amazing too. If you like post-apocalyptic books, you will like these. One of my favorite things was that no character was perfect. They each made dumb mistakes and then had to admit it was dumb. I hate it when a book has that one character who always does everything perfect and right. That’s not possible. In this series all of the characters are flawed, just like in real life. It made the characters seem so real, especially when the narrator was so good at voicing said characters. As soon as the last book ended I jumped online to see if there were anymore books in the series. I wasn’t ready to leave their world just yet. Alas, this is a trilogy, so it’s over and I must move on.

Omnibus Edition

This is a solid apocalyptic tale full of action and suspense. It was hard to get into, but once it took off it became more enjoyable. The characters and plot are solid as well. There’s not really much that is unique, but it’s a solid diversion—escapism fix.

I find Andrew’s narration hit or miss. I’ve read several of the books that he has narrated. He does a pretty good job on this book.

Recommend the omnibus edition.

A complete series

After the Outbreak. .
If you like a bit of post apoc - then what's not to love about a complete series and 19 hours of gripping fast paced post apoc action. .
Really good entertainment. What more can I say?
Narration by a top class narrator, Andrew Tell is a first-class story teller.

A Really Fantastic Post Apocalyptic Trilogy

This audiobook book was a brilliant surprise and I enjoyed it from the beginning to the end. It features a really likable lead character called Nick and his group of friends that come together during the time after a virus has wiped out most of humanity. There is plenty of action and tense situations as well as the odd surprise.
Some of the group members were a little frustrating, as were some of their decision making but who knows how we would react in that situation?
It was very well narrated by Andrew Tell who really brought the story to life.
I 100% recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a great adventure and I can't wait to listen to another book by Dave Bowman.
I was given this book free in exchange for an honest review and it was a real pleasure to do so
