It was mostly the narrator.

I have tried repeatedly to finish this book but just can't. When I see I still have 19 hours left I just can't imagine slogging through this book to find out how it ends. Maybe it would be different with a better narrator but I am not even sure about that. I will have to return it.

This is not a prepper story

While this genre has been descending into formulaic writing, those two stories were never prepper stories to begin with. Admittedly I have never listened to a Jack Hunt book before. I don’t know whether Jack is a thirty something woman or a twenty something male but the writing AND the narration was far to emo to be endured. I had to force myself to finish the stories. I am not saying that jack can’t write, in fact his stories have some bare bone ideas that have great merit. I am saying that no writer is suited for every genre and that Jack is not suited for prepper fiction. Perhaps dramatic popular fiction. If you must write by formula, please emulate Tom Clancy, Vince Flynn, or (dare I say it) Clive Cussler. Not Danielle Steele. They know how string tension and evolve their characters while using emotion/sex/humour as a spice rather than as a main ingredient.

Terrible book!

Besides learning a few ideas on how to prep for an EMP attack, this book was terrible. The story line was weak. It was filled with gratuitous and vivid descriptions of violence and gore. And the narrator sounded bored reading the thing. Not only was she the wrong choice for such a violent book with her "girl next door" voice, but even during the more "exciting" parts, her monotone never changed. This book was disjointedly written and often lacked common sense. I would not recommend this book at all.

Awful, just awful

It’s a bad book, but it is consistent. It started off bad, it stayed bad, and it finished badly.

bad narrator

The story is good however the 2nd half narrator is hard to listen too. sounds like a robot voice and constantly hearing heavy breathing and other background noise.

somewhat implausible and not well thought-out

and both books they use an EMP and terrorists/ soldiers in their attack, I find this to be foolish. when common projections speculate a 80 to 90% casualty rate with him the first one to two years after an EMP, why would you put boots on the ground right away? an enemy would let the population die off and then go finish the remaining 10 to 20%.
another bone of contention what's the second book they talked as though they were falling off a 50 year supply of food in backpacks in canoes at most the group may have been able to carry 10% of that. the 50-year supply in a bunker the size described is a bit implausible in and of itself. the amount of supplies described would probably fill 1 1/2 to 2 semi trailers.

Bad writing and performance.

The author didn't understand much about EMPs and used it poorly as a plot device. The narrator made every teenager sound like a toddler. Take your money or credit elsewhere.

GOOD STORY - BAD NARRATION

I enjoyed the story line. Know ahead of time that the boxset is two separate books with different characters. I liked the characters in both books. The narration was painful. It seems like the narrator is reading the book and pausing at the end of each line, not the end of each sentence...

Premise is unbelievable

I really tried to like this but most of it was just unbelievable. without giving away things in the book to someone who wants to try this, the whole thing was too unlikely. The ending was rushed like the author was tired of it and just wanted it to end. characters didn't have much depth and the more interesting ones you never got to know. the book left me disappointed, especially since it was set in my home state , and I truly believe the author doesn't know any Texans.

Bad!!

I could not finish! The story is dumb and the reader is awkward. This is a war-&- demented- violence story. Just awful!

Disappointing time waster!

Even though this seems like value for money, the 1st story is empty of content and boring.
The 2nd story I couldn't even complete though I attempted a few times to stick with it. The narrator is the main problem, she is slow , slurry, nasaly and her voice is beyond irritating. Maybe reading this book yourself would be a better option... personally what I did listen to did not grip me enough to bother.
A real bad buy and sooo boring.....

Great American Based EMP Story

I enjoy post apocalyptic stories and enjoyed this one. Like all of them however I doubt very much society would go to hell in a hand basket inside of a week.
There were still so many questions and so many ways they could have told this story.
