Publisher's Summary

Apocalypse All the Time is post-post-apocalypticism. The apocalypse happens on a weekly (if not daily) basis and Marshall is sick of it. Life is constantly in peril, constantly disrupted, but nothing significant every really happens as a result. It's always handled. Marshall wants out; he wants it all to end. In short, the book explores what about the end times holds such fascination for humanity and what impact such a fascination has on the way we live our lives.

A never ending romp through apocalypse's

Any one of these apocalypses would make for a great sci-fi original grade b movie. All together it's an overwhelming never ending hilarious romp through absurdity after absurdity. The author and narrator deliver big time. The off shoot tales of oscar and Andrew are wonderful interludes. The ending is a wonderful twist and reveal. Highly highly recommend this one. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Entertaining and short

This book has a lot of humor and sarcasim and once you learn that, it is a fun and entertaining listen. The performance by Gary Tiedemann was great.

Apocalyptic Smash Up

It always amazes me, the ingenuity of the human mind to take a story that you feel you’ve heard every possible rendition of and a writer comes along and completely upends the genre with a unique spin.

Marshall lives in a post-apocalyptic world… scratch that. If there’s a different and totally random apocalypse happening every few days can you truly say you live in a post-apocalypse society? So many questions, so few answers! But Marshall isn’t looking for answers, he accepts the status quo with amazing calmness and a matter of fact attitude.

Apocalypse All The Time is a mixture of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Dr. Who. I found the running commentary amusing and the never ending cycle of post-apocalyptic events mind boggling. There are zombies, floods, explosions, people catching fire, basically everything including the kitchen sink!

This nearly six-hour audiobook is narrated by Gary Tiedemann and I like his style, his delivery is a little tongue in cheek and I’m partial to that type of reading. The audio and editing of the production are high quality.

If you’re looking for a unique sci-fi listen, that’s far from the standard fare, I recommend Apocalypse All The Time.

HGTTG meets Groundhog day and The Matrix

I received this audiobook free in exchange for an unbiased review.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy meets Groundhog Day and the Matrix. There were many times while listening to this audiobook that I almost turned it off thinking "This is stupid and has no point." Kind of like I did when I first watch Napoleon Dynamite. But there was something that kept me listening to see what would happen next. It was predictable, with little twists to keep it entertaining.

The narrator did a great job keeping the story going and changed rate and pace to keep pace with the storyline and dialog.

I will say I did not enjoy the interludes, I felt they were distracting and broke the flow of the story and skipped the majority of them.

Funny yet thoughtful apocalypse story

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

I enjoyed the narration of the book. It added dimension to the story and the character. The world building of a daily apocalypse was excellent. It brings out the story of a world that has become so jaded and disjointed but also added to the humor. I haven't read this author before but I am going to look for more after this book. Excellent resolution and ending of the story by the way. I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

Great Narration

I have received this book free of charge so that I may post an honest review. I have taken to commenting on the narration in my headlines and putting it front and center because, lets face it, narration can make or break an audible book. I found this narrator to be perfect for the character in the story and the narration did not detract from the story being told at all. The story itself is a cute and enjoyable satire about the sad shape of the world as we know it. Shows how a large group of people begin to become numb and only having a group mentality after listening to 24/7 news cycles about impending doom and destruction.

Not your typical save the world story

Where does Apocalypse All the Time rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I read the book right when it came out and loved it, so when I found the audiobook version with Gary Tiedemann I couldn't resist! This will be a book I read (or listen to) over and over again. It is not the predictable Apocalypse story you might be used to. It is clever, funny, easy to read, and encourages us to think about life and human nature. As someone who loves the world is ending kind of stories, I would definitely recommend this one. This was my first David Atkinson book, and I will definitely be on the lookout for more.

Fun, quirky novel

A very cool premise for a story and it's executed well. Quite a few laughs throughout (the story of the Jews for example) and had a good resolution. I enjoyed the little interludes as well and one in particular had me laughing quite a bit.

Story was good, but I must say that the narration was top notch! This was my first experience with him and I'm keen to check out more of his work.

Post ADD age

Any additional comments?

The narration is overall well done, albeit, dry and almost melancholy at times. I know this is supposed to be be a satirical treatise of our modern 1st world mentality, but it just fell a little flat for me. I think the author missed the mark with characters, I really never felt any connection at all. This is not a bad listen, just not exactly for me.<br/><br/>“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”
