Rated based on young adult type story

This is a really good young adult story series. If you suspend disbelief then you'll love it's characters and message. The other reviewer for this stopped at 4 episodes and said it made fun of the mentally ill people, far from it, it is very accurate and cares about people with metal issues. I would recommend for all young adults. If you are a conservative they do make fun of you a lot, just suck it up as it is a good story overall.

Empathetic, Entertaining, & Worth a Listen!

Came for Gaby Dunn, stayed for the engaging and lovable characters, extremely interesting plot, and thoughtful and sensitive portrayal of mental illness. Also, all the voice actors were great! Excellent performances. I'm glad I listened to it, and I would encourage others to do the same. I'm just disappointed there wasn't more. Can't wait for the next installment!

Raw Without Filters

Something new and incredible. A story of mental Heath issues told from the perspective of those experiencing the behavior and the medical issues it presents. An exceptional telling of a deeply personal nature. Raw, without filters. It expresses gratitude as well as deep inner insecurities. Unlike anything you’ve ever read or heard. 5 STARS!!!!

Good start, flat ending

I felt it started off with a really good premise and the acting in the beginning was very good. But after asteroid I felt like the story telling and acting took a hit. The author could’ve done a better job at explaining each characters illness without it becoming so didactic.
I felt like often the story was put on pause to spoon feed me what each illness was along with it’s associated behaviors. In many ways I felt like some of the main characters were rather flat and I definitely felt like I didn’t know much about them at all. I thought it was ok but a lot of the jokes got repetitive and old.

Too Many F Bombs

Enjoyable story, especially for just being an Audible member freebie, but there were too many F bombs. I like to listen to Audible on my phone while I’m getting dressed in the morning, but I couldn’t listen to this story bc I have children coming in and out of my room to get things they need to get ready, too. Even a D word or an SH word in place of them would’ve made this story a lot less cringey.

Please make a season 2!

I loved this. I listened to it all in one sitting this morning. It was amazing! I loved that this was a more realistic apocalyptic sci-fi. No aliens or zombies. Just real young adults, with real issues surviving in a somewhat believable scenario. I loved the realistic portrayal of people with varying types of mental health issues. That is a rare thing. Not some mainstream media BS.

The script was great. The voice actors did a great job. I would love to learn more specifics about the characters past lives... we only touched on a few. Also want to know what happens to them next. Where will they go? Will they try to find the Chinese people? Will they meet new survivors? Will Indy's dad find her? Find Arlo's family? So many unanswered questions.

The put downs, stereotypes, political, upsetting

The topic is interesting, I wanted to enjoy it. It is upsetting, that Amazon/Audible force their beliefs down our throats. They can not provide content that let people to be free and open minded. The concept of people facing coming off their meds, and having to deal with their issues and the ones around them.

Trash

Take your political agenda and carry it far away where the rest of us don't have to deal with it. This seemed interesting until you proved it is all about identity politics.

excellent adventure!

I loved it, well acted and extremely funny. I'll been looking for more of Gaby Dunn's work..
I also liked the messages around dependency on psychoactive drugs and struggles with withdrawal. Good stuff!

ok but cuts off at the end

it's ok but abruptly ends just as things are getting interesting. A lot of loose ends. Actors were great & the sound effects help build an atmosphere it's just a shame it ended before anything is really figured out

emersive

well written, produced and performed.

Humorous and thought provoking in places.

Hope that the follow-up is done soon as it was left in a good spot to allow the next sequence of events.

Woefully incomplete

spent a lot of time building the characters and premise, while not really providing a lot of plot and intrigue. ended so abruptly . it's like taking a couple of uppers , bit by bit, and just when the high is kicking in, only to have a whole bottle of downers shoved down the throat.

Gripping story but short on coclusion

This is a gripping story. Frustrating that each episode is so short and i haven't figured out how to make them just roll on to the next. Very interesting look at how a group of very self obsessed teens have to cope and learn to look out for each other. Ending leaves a lot to your imagination.
