Publisher's Summary

An unputdownable EMP thriller with a brilliant twist!

Best-selling EMP thriller author James Hunt, author of Surviving the Collapse and Static, which have collectively accumulated 200+ five-star reviews come together in this audio set for the first time!

Surviving the Collapse: A Tale of Survival in a Powerless World

What happens when all means of transportation and communication suddenly vanish? What happens when you can't call for help? What happens when the only person you can rely on is yourself? Captain Kate Hillman is about to discover those answers after an EMP sends New York City, and it's nine million residents, back into the stone age. 

Static: An EMP Thriller

The thin thread holding the civilized world together has been severed. Millions of citizens have been thrust into the unknown, breeding fear into the minds and souls of those seeking to survive. Wren Burton, an architect from Chicago, has been engulfed by the chaotic aftermath of an EMP blast. Her family is injured. The enemy is unknown. And help is nowhere to be found.

Not the best of the genre

The Perils of Pauline with plot holes. I like getting the boxed sets as there are many hours for a regular or reduce price. This one bit me on the, well you get the idea. At one point I realized that I had previously purchased the second of the set and at that point stopped listening. My bad. There were a couple of surprises but overall, in spite of the stupid mistakes the characters made, one knows how things will work out. No suspense and other than how fools can survive, it was predictable, plot holes not withstanding.

Are you kidding me??

I am not sure where to begin. I am normally a huge fan of this type of book.
Both of the stories have an amazing disregard for anything approaching reality. The need for consultation in the areas of weaponry , weather and general survivability is breathtaking.. However, if you have a blind need for a heroin that is put on a pedestal for absolutely no reason other than she's hard-headed and gets people killed then I guess this is for you...

I couldn't listen anymore - IT'S THAT BAD!

OMG ! I can't believe how bad this book is! I read some of the reviews saying that it was bad, but I thought that it can't be that bad so I purchased it. it's that bad.

I tried to tell myself that it would make it better movie to explain away how bad it was.

I tried to rationalize to myself how inconsistent it was, how so many things we're left unexplained. but I cannot explain why they would be so unrealistic in everything that was described in this book.

I was excited to be able to read a book with this type of situation-- from an urban standpoint and from a female standpoint. but this book just isn't it. it's just horribly written!!
it doesn't seem that bad in the beginning but by the time I got to chapter 10 I couldn't bear anymore. purchase at your own risk!
thank God audible gives a return policy. I'm about to contact audible now and ask for return of credit.

A lack of research and technical flaws doom this series

This is, in my opinion, a simply awful series of books that appears to be the first attempt at storytelling by a recent college graduate, rather than from a seasoned writer.

In fact, I could not make it all the way through the series. That’s because the technical errors that could only stem from inadequate technical research—or no research—were so pervasive and so often repeated.

The characters in the story is, with a few exceptions, do not rise to even two dimensions. The stories require that you not only suspend disbelief, but you also believe that what would otherwise be impossible to fathom is commonplace, and the central characters draw those impossibilities to them like magnets, repeatedly and inexplicably.

Lest my opinions and conclusions remain unclear, this “super box set” is a super disappointment.

Truly A Fictional Story...No Value For Preppers

First off, I know that this is supposed to be a fictional apocalyptic adventure, but between the inaccuracies regarding people's physical abilities, firearms handling and function, the internal dialogue of the main character, plus the author's obvious obsession with injuries and blood, leads me to believe that most readers would be better off elsewhere. As an example, the main character was a female that was supposedly hiking through the apocalypse with a 60 lbs. backpack...Anyone who has experience with hiking, survival training knows this is absurd! There were too many other parts of the stories that were painful to listen to...I wanted to quit many times before finishing the book, but I am not a quiter! The final main character had too much inner dialogue that bordered on being a headcase and I may need to seek counseling after hearing her ramblings over and over.
If you are looking for a totally unrealistic post-apocalyptic adventure then I hope this fits your needs? If you are looking for a realistic post-apocalyptic adventure that is based upon actual hands-on experience in survival, firearms, close quarters combat, tactical operations, etc...Look elsewhere!

Not my favorite

I'm not sure if it was the book itself I struggled finishing or I just really didn't care for the narrator.

Stupendously bad

I couldn't even maker it half way. I don't think I've ever been more annoyed at a protagonist.

And for heaven's sake, if you're going to write about guns, survivalists and the military, at least read a book on them first. And when your main subject is a known, documented phenomena like EMP, read two. Then read another one about the existing, real world prep for it that is already in place.

On the bright side, I'm going to look for more by the narrator. She did a good job, transcending what she was handed to work with.

awful book

This book was awful in every way. I purchase 5 or more books per month and have NEVER been so disappointed. I want a full credit on this one.
