Amazing

This is one of the best books ( or book series) I have ever read. The story is amazing, it is as good as the prequel, and the audio was good! Great job.

A feel good zombie story

I will miss the Rains. I really enjoyed this story. This is part two to “the rains” so go there first. Speaking as a little brother I can relate to the feeling of being deep in trouble and having some come in and say “I’ve got it from here little brother” great story. There are a few little issues but with these types of stories you have to let some stuff slide.

Not his best work

Any additional comments?

An engaging story and very good character development. The frequency of deus ex machine moments made it almost farcical though

it had its moments

the story had some good moments but generally I wish I never started this book and I actually put the speed to 1.8 x to wrap it up since I already invested so much time in it along with skipping a bunch of stuff at the end

Hurwitz is brilliant

After loving the Orphan X series, I gave this (mini) series a shot. While I wouldn't say the genre (SCI FI) isn't my first choice, the story was well written, captivating and had great character development. The narrator was a perfect choice for this set of books. Well done, sir. Well, done.

Exhausting!!

It's like the Walking Dead on steroids. No lul in the action, it just keeps coming, one life ending threat after another.

Bravo!

I choked up in the ending, but deep down I always knew what was going to happen.

This book will definitely keep you busy trying to find out what happens next. I can honestly say there isn’t anything I dislike about this book other than Ben and his little gang. I really appreciate some of the literary references.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves a good apocalypse novel.

Hurwitz is Human After All

I apologize upfront because Greg Hurwitz is one of my favorite authors. I am guilt ridden that I did not take some of the stars from my 10-star reviews of his Orphan X books and generously donate them here. But instead, honesty. I wanted so badly to quit listening to this story but I trudged on knowing it would get better. It didn't. One Hurwitz's great strength is getting the reader to believe that impossible scenarios, characters and interactions are actually plausible. Didn't happen. Do I regret buying Last Chance? Not really. I am happy to support this remarkable author, and even the best home run hitters strike out sometimes. Also, I could be wrong. Looks like a lot of other people rated it highly.

Great YA book

I listened and was entertained but surely it is a book for the youth. The narrator sounds like about 14/25 the age of Chance Rain. It took a bit of getting used to the voice but I waded thru. All & all the book is Hurwitz but since I didn’t listen to first one I can’t give a comparison. I can say if you’re young and like sci-fi then I’m sure you’ll enjoy the Chance (pun intended) you take on getting this book!
