Too over the top

Series of books are too violent. The impossibility of surviving certain situations while a very high percentage of fellow characters being killed off is annoying. The fact that we humans couldn't find a common purpose after a global calamity to work together to rebuild society is improbable at best. The author has the world constantly in nuclear war after 90 plus of the human and mammal populations are destroyed by nanobots.
Overall don't waste your money on this series of books. If you get it for Free somehow then I'd say listen to it. You might be entertained by the complete absurdity of the situations portrayed in the books.

No Empathy

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

I tried to enjoy this book, but while the narrator did a reasonable job the author failed.

I made it half way through the book, but a good percentage was trying to give me the back story it failed to make the characters real, I could not feel anything for them, in fact at times I wish they just died (sorry couldn't help myself).

So buyer beware

What could Jeff Carlson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Let me build a relationship with the characters

How could the performance have been better?

Not bad so no rel complaints here

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really
