Publisher's Summary

Could you survive the collapse?

Two weeks after the virus outbreak, the trouble is just beginning. Nick, Jessa, and the rest of the group defended their home against a vicious attack. But the worst is yet to come. When Nick is forced to venture into new territory, he discovers just how deadly the world is now. With modern society in ruins, criminal elements are organizing and trying to take control.

Could you find the courage you need?

Matt Redmond is the only survivor in his town. He needs to get out if he wants to stay alive. A glimmer of hope lies in New Mexico, 800 miles away. It's a dangerous journey that would test anyone's bravery. And Matt just turned 13.

Law and order are long gone.

An alliance brings hope, but not even new friends can help Nick and the others when disaster strikes. With members of the group scattered, can they find their way back to each other? In this dangerous new world, how far will they go for their makeshift family?

Fight to Live is book two in a post-apocalyptic thriller series about people pushing past their limits as they try to survive the end of the world.

Good listen, Good Characters, Good Narrator

I didn't listen to the first book, but I knew what happened without doing so. To be honest, I like those kind of books that you don't have to listen to all in the series.

I found this a good listen, although a bit predictable. You knew what was next or at least an idea of what was coming. This didn't interrupt my listening or make me want to stop it.

The characters were very well developed as well visual through the narrator. I love this narrator as well. He does a great job of separating characters.

I'm looking forward for the third book. This was great listen.

Nothing new

What did you like best about Fight to Live: A Post-Apocalyptic Thriller? What did you like least?

There's nothing inherently bad in this book. Just that it doesn't have anything new that many other post-apocalyptic books haven't explored already. There's nothing new here. The characters are more or less your typical fares, they follow predictable paths and face similar struggles. When they have any decision to make, you know which way the story is heading. You can tune out for a minutes and still figure out how the story reached here.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

See above.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

There's no complaint about the narration. Andrew Tell did good enough job of telling the age old tale.

Did Fight to Live: A Post-Apocalyptic Thriller inspire you to do anything?

Move on to the next book in my list.

Fun apocolyptic story.

If you could sum up Fight to Live: A Post-Apocalyptic Thriller in three words, what would they be?

Man vs man.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mathew was my favorite. Kid was able to survive and had a good attitude trying to get to his family.

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

The intensity and also brought the characters alive. He was great and had a good range. For the most part I was able to tell who was who.

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

What happens when a virus wipes out 98 percent of the world poulation.

Any additional comments?

This is actually the second book of the series. I did not feel lost and it was basically a stand alone story. Great read.

A solid continuation of the series

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

As with the first book, the overall premise is nothing new, a post apocalyptic survival story. I thought this book was even a little better than the first one, with some new characters being introduced. I will definitely be on the lookout for more in this series.

A great follow-up post apocalyptic audiobook!

I definitely recommend listening to the first of the series so you don't get lost, but you won't be disappointed. The author does a great job of character and storyline development. I think more details of the journeys to Colorado could have been added, but I understand the author's need to condense the story to fit certain requirements.

The narrator does a wonderful job providing context and bringing the characters to life. Overall it's an enjoyable series that I recommend to anyone that's into post apocalyptic stories.

Great book

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Andrew Tell is becoming one of my favorite narrators, very clear and uses appropriate emotion.

I find a lot of this genre to be on the line of believable. This story is not only believable, its how I imagine things could be in reality. Great job!

A Good Book

This is a good solid book in the Post Apocalyptic Collection. It is well written and the narration by Andrew Tell is great! I would recommend it as a good solid book.

My only comment is that with 90-95% of the population dead the country would be a lot emptier than it was reflected in the book.

While I was given this book in exchange for a review, I have reviewed the book honestly to the best of my ability. I would never recommend a book to someone else if I would not purchase it myself

Getting good.

This series is fun, but missing twists and a great ending, I'm hoping book 3 is on it way.
The book is written in a movie style, and is very enjoyable.
Performance is perfectly done, my only problem is that there are parts that are very predictable but beside that it's easy on the brain so you can't not enjoy it.
So I have no problem recommending this series.

Going in the right direction

Would you try another book written by Dave Bowman or narrated by Andrew Tell?

After the first book in this series, I wasn't convinced I would continue with it. However, when it popped up on my list as available I was between books so thought why not and I was pleasantly surprised by it. It's certainly changed my mind about the series and whilst it won't be something I'll be pre-ordering or have an antagonising wait for, I'll certainly see this series through as long as it continues to get better.

Would you recommend Fight to Live: A Post-Apocalyptic Thriller to your friends? Why or why not?

I guess I already have, I talked to someone about it and they decided to read it and they enjoyed the first book and will be reading the second soon.

The story continues along its storyline of the good and innocent doing what they can to survive against those with lesser morals which isn't anything new for the genre but it was much better written than the first so absolutely worth a shot if you're stuck for something new to read.

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

Andrew continues to bring unique and recognisable voices to all the characters, there are some characters that I find difficult to listen too and a little frustrating. I'm not sure if Andrew changed something between books 1 and 2 with the way he did those voices but those frustrations seemed to be far less of an issue so I was able to enjoy this more.

Did Fight to Live: A Post-Apocalyptic Thriller inspire you to do anything?

I wouldn't say it inspired me in anyway, no.
