A guy named Ufuk? Seriously, "Ufuk"! Whyyyyy?

Could not get past the first scenes at all. Every stereotypical character characteristic and instant attraction action possible was tossed in--except for that ridiculous name.

What kind of writer uses such a pretentious (albeit a "foreigner") name for a major character? Does the writer expect the reader to read the entire book to find out why a character would have such a name, other than being other than American?

And then there are the stereotypes: he's brilliant, she's beautiful, her mother's beautiful. She's smart but she got herself into trouble being stupid about a boyfriend and a car. They are tourists but I guess because of their beauty they get pulled out of the crowd and treated like royalty just because some weird-named, rich or famous or something guy notices them...or something. Talk about pretentious writing. What the Ufuk indeed!

First two books in series not bad...

I like the first two books in this series but this one is horrible. Characters become jerks and stupid.

Complications

Lot of work went into the book, but the story line and purpose, still trying to figure it out. Female hero totally unbelievable. Like they threw spaghetti at the wall, trying to get something to stick.

Needs to pay for a female reader for women’s voices!!

All the women sound like men - making it
rather difficult to follow. Most of the men’s voices are between two different accents - again making it difficult to discern where they are or who is actually speaking.

NOT A SURVIVAL STORY

What would have made Resistance better?

Stop the dog gone conspiracy garbage

What was most disappointing about Matthew Mather and Lucas Bale ’s story?

They lost the chance to tell a good apocalypse survival story BUT RUINED IT by turning it into a EVIL GOVERNMENT CONSPIRACY story

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Resistance?

I would have reguired the author to go back and make it a survival story!

Any additional comments?

The whole series is falsely presented as a post apocalyptic survival story....it is no such thing. I FEEL REALLY CHEATED!!!

Lies, Deception, Subterfuge

I am really drawn into this whole story. The narration helps keep the flow going and helps the reader understand who is speaking even when their names aren't said. There is so much cultural and sociopolitical backlash that it really stirs up thoughts of what the world would really come to. Being a realist with little hope in humanity itself the reality painted so far makes sense even if it is sad and scary.

Enjoyable and fast moving but not as good as 1&2

Great narration and good story.
Some parts ran at bit slower and the plot became somewhat predictable.
I still say this is a must listen.

Ah OK, lots of action but disjointed.

I kept getting lost in this story or I would fall asleep. The book starts off in space then goes to earth. The book has plenty of action, end of the world, ashes coving the world. Only a few remain. But this story just doest fit together. So i give it a conflicted 3.

One of the best !!!!

Because its a four books series and all my reviews will pretty much the same for each of them, I’ve decided to write one review for all and copy / paste it to all four after I complete listening to the complete series.

One of my favorite ever the Author Matthew Mather is really awesome when it comes to science fiction.
The same talent he used with Nomad that for sure, truly a masterpiece a beautiful series but for an unknown reason it feels like it’s missing one more book to finish the series, its just feels incomplete.
Choosing the Narrator: Keith Szarabajka was without a doubt perfection.

And without a doubt this
Series
Got my full recommendation !
