Cornell senior Logan Freeman returns from a camping trip only to find that the campus, and much of upstate New York, has turned into an arctic wasteland overnight. Left behind in the evacuation, Logan must battle the agonizing cold, ravenous predators and his own inner demons in order to survive.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
First, someone should have actually listened to this before putting it up for sale. There are so many repeated sentence fragments it was difficult to concentrate on the story. For example: "The sound of the gun was deafening in the small room. Was deafening in the small room." One or two instances is a glitch you can get over. When it happens every eight sentences, it's inexcusable. The story itself is just okay. Some of the premises were weak to say the least. I live on the east coast and have been through several major snow storms. There was never looting. Mass looting in the middle of a blizzard with multiple feet of snow doesn't happen. Evacuating an entire town/small city ahead of a snow storm doesn't happen. And I still don't get why the guy went out in the middle of woods to camp for a night in a three-sided shack with a storm on the way. He has a compass and all this survival gear but didn't listen to a weather forecast?
What could Jacob Zhang have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
There are some good elements to the story but the plot holes, annoying sound and audio glitches distracted from it.
Would you be willing to try another one of Joe Monzo’s performances?
I don't whose job is it to give the audio a final listen, but they failed. It's probably a production editor so maybe I shouldn't blame Joe Monzo.
Any additional comments?
I did not finish the book.

Joe Monzo here. All of the errors in The Tundra have been fixed.
Once again, I give my sincerest apologies to anyone who may have had a bad experience with this book because of my mistakes.
