Publisher's Summary

Morgan has managed to get through a lot. Having made it back to his family and dealt with the issues of unscrupulous neighbors, he then had to deal with the presence of the federal government and their nefarious activities. But with the help of his close-knit group he prevailed. Life is settling into a familiar routine. And with the help of the US Army, they are starting to rebuild their community. But just when Morgan thinks things are assuming some kind of normal, another surprise lands in his lap. He's made sheriff.

Harkening back to a time when law enforcement was a local face in the community, Morgan is forced to step up and be that face, much to his chagrin. With the help of Thad, Danny, and the rest of the crew, he accepts the challenge and tries to make a positive impact. But he's in for yet another surprise. New foes will arise, and old ones will return to conspire to destroy his efforts.

Morgan's group will suffer loss, injury, and constant assault. His new position has made him a target as well as those he loves. The peace and tranquility that the group has fought so hard for will continue to elude them. The fight, as Morgan soon learns, is just beginning.

Untouchable

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. Funny, exciting, great characters.......

What was one of the most memorable moments of Enforcing Home?

The Explosion at the market

Have you listened to any of Duke Fontaine’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. Slower this time around.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Listened to all the Survivalist series books as well as hundreds of other apocalyptic novels. The Survivalist series stands alone at the top of my Favorites. My opinion, this is the best series in the genre, all others as well. Hope A. American keeps them coming, with Duke Fontaine as the narrator.

Enforcing Home does not disapoint, seemlessly fits

Would you listen to Enforcing Home again? Why?

I listened to the other five, three or four times. I see no need to change here. They just get better and better. Why? Because I like the story.

What other book might you compare Enforcing Home to and why?

Although different in many ways, there are similar components in "One Year After" by William Forstchen, both stories flow nicely.

What does Duke Fontaine bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Continuity. I have some audio books that are series with different readers and that kind of changes the overall flavor. I have some where the reader has is good sometimes and lazy at others, which become annoying. There isn't much I'd change with Fontaine, save maybe a few less "he said" "she saids". All in all, he's very good.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The future ends, only for those who give up. or maybe just, never say die.

Any additional comments?

I've gotten several books on this same vane, only a few kept my attention and got me to buy the next one. I pray we don't have long to wait for book 7.

Series started well then turned tedious.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who enjoys books that "tell" instead of "show."

Has Enforcing Home turned you off from other books in this genre?

No. Just this series.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Duke Fontaine?

Ray Porter

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment

Any additional comments?

The series started well; exciting, lots of action and tension - although with the usual listing of apocalypse-approved equipment common in the genre. But starting with book 5, the series has bogged down into tedium. Hours spent in endless description and conversation and repetition. Find some ice for a drink of water? Be prepared to hear every character exclaim how good ice water is on a hot day and with every vocal and visual emotion told to you with "he said", "he exclaimed," "she shouted." What to know how to build a water tank and associated water aqueduct? You'll know EXACTLY how to do it with every step told to you in exact detail. I could overlook the amateurishness of the writing if SOMETHING were happening but the last two books (5 and 6) in the series have been bores. Book 5 was a fire(with EVERY character asking "will we have to move?" and the EXACT same response from the protagonist) and book 6 teases you with a new group of baddies and a resurgent DHS, but only 4 minor action sequences spread out over the book's endless "telling." Do yourself a favor and stop after book 4.

Story didn't really progress

I've been a fan of this series for several years now. Honestly I'm a little conflicted over the narrator. My issue is that once you've heard an outstanding narrator it's hard to compare them to average or moderately good narrator. After listening to Christian Rummel narrate for DJ Molle it almost seems unfair to compare other narrators to him. The narrator in this book was driving me nuts. It would go something like this "the wall was splattered with blood.......and tissue" or "the group was waiting to be picked up..... by the army". Maybe I'm being overly critical. You will have to be the judge. The other main issue I have was this book didn't really progress the story line. I feel like between the first chapter and the last chapter the story line was virtually in the same place. We established that there is a band of misfits and they teamed up with DHS to give Morgan's group trouble. That's it. It took over 10 hours to say that. This book should have been part of the other books in the series. Honestly I feel like I wasted a credit because this entire book was filler for 11 hours. It's not enough to get me to stop listening to the series but I really hope we can move along in the next book.

Horrible story

I have listened to all of these books. I have waited for some decent character development. I have waited for a decent ending. These books are rhetorical and sound like they have been taken directly off of Wikipedia. I tried giving each book a chance because I like post apocalyptic fiction and I liked the first book.however I wasn't even able to finish this last one I'll be returning for my audible credit.

Take a little more time editing the next book...

Folks I'm hear to tell you there are a lot, lot, lot of phony reviews for this book. I quite liked this series and was pretty invested in the family and compound. Book #6 though, felt like it didn't even get more than a token review by the author... I couldn't suspend my disbelief, got tired to death of the repeated comments and phrases (a good self-editor would have inked them out on the first reread), the obvious lack of understanding of TB and the stupidity of previously smart characters made listening to this one almost unbearable.

The increased amount of profanity, torture and extensive "locker room" male crudeness... changed the target audience... and I am out of the picture now. Best stopping point was Book 4.

And to make it worse, I didn't learn anything... except for product placement promotions and how to build a latrine... and I had flipping wasted a credit as this book ends without a stop point.

Decent storyline, terrible performance

If you can get past the juvenile dialogue, and what sounds to be reading from a stuttering teleprompter, the storyline is actually decent. The dialogue sounds as though it was written by someone whose only exposure to the English language was 1970's public service announcements and after school specials television, while the performance sounds like someone's leaky typewriter spilled commas randomly throughout the text. About every 3 words Duke Fontaine pauses and then seems surprised there's more to be said. Think if Captain...James...T...Kirk and IBM'S Watson had a love child that went on to be a narrator.

I just can't stop listening to these books, mostly because I've already invested so much in the story I feel like I can't quit now until I know how these people, who are clearly victims of the invasion of the body snatchers, fare in the end.

Duke what are you playing at???

I have no idea what duke was playing at this time around. 3 mins in and I could cope with the slow pace of his reading it, felt like he really didn't care about what he was reading, no passion or feeling like the other books.

Had to return it. It was doing my head in.

Family Prepper Series

Would you listen to Enforcing Home again? Why?

Yes. This series gives the reader a lot to think about if society disintegrates.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Enforcing Home?

The ending. It's a cliffhanger and leads into the next book Avenging Home.

What does Duke Fontaine bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Sarge is well done and comes to life.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

When a man's home is his castle.

There's no place like Home.

Home sweet Home.

Any additional comments?

I like how the books treat each progressive step in rebuilding Home.
