Good start of an interesting series.

A brand new nuclear powered submarine surfaces after being submerged for a month during its shake-out trials. The crew is expecting to breathe clean, fresh air after their month-long radio-silence break from society. What they got was a dense fog-like ash everywhere clogging filters, machinery and electronics. Even more confusing was that there were no communications of any sort; no radio, television, satellite, only static or dead silence. As they examined the coast cities and installations there was no evidence of power, no lights, no automobiles, and the final shock; no people. What had happened? Where was everyone? The Captain of the submarine looks for a safe port while he decides what to do. After a week without any contact and running out of food the Captain resolves to release what crew wants to go to look for family. The Exec Officer Commander Jack Cisco feels he must try to reach his wife and two daughters in Texas 1,000 miles away. This is the story of Cisco’s harrowing journey home. Three.point.five for a good start.

A Home-run Post Apocalypse Story

What made the experience of listening to Apocalypse Trails Omnibus: Episodes 1-3 the most enjoyable?

The synergy of reading performance and story, but most importantly the story gave me what I wanted in a post apocalyptic tail, details, day to day life.

Fantastic!!

One of my favorite post apocalyptic books to date! I loved the twist since so many of these books are about an EMP.
I can't wait for the next one!!

bad narration

the story line us ok, but the narrator reads like a 60s infomercial. every sentence is read like it's on the edge of your seat action. even ordinary mundane actions are read like they're heart pounding suspense.

Great post-apocalypse adventure story

I enjoyed the way the author made the main characters personalities and abilities relate-able while still being skilled enough to be the 'hero'. I lose a little enthusiasm for the story when nature provides the barriers to progress (falling building / flash flood) however the story was robust enough to carry me through.
All in, an enjoyable adventure well narrated (at my typical 2x speed).

Overly dramatic narration

I thought I could deal with the overly dramatic narration but I just couldn’t. I hated having to return this book as the story is pretty good. However, when even the most mundane task are performed as if everyone’s life depends on cleaning a kitchen it’s just too much to take. If they re-release this book with a different narrator then I would definitely purchase it again. As it stands I will avoid all books performed by Michael Pauley.

Narrator is trying to win an Oscar

I think the story would be much more enjoyable if the narrator wasn’t trying so hard. Every. Single. Sentence. Is. Said. Dramatically. Also, the Japanese character almost sounds like an Arnold Schwarzenegger impression. I’m sure he is a gifted person who is just trying incredibly hard to do a great job. But, it’s too much. I’m only a few chapters in and I’m not sure I can continue. Feedback for the narrator, relax a little not every sentence is climactic. Also you finish most sentences in the same way, vary it a little. I will watch for future stories read by Michael Pauley, I’m sure his time is coming :)
