Part two continues the story

I found this world in the last survivor series to be very engaging. I here the negative comments about how things are portrayed and at the start of the book, the author gives his 2 cents on the portrayal of women in the story. Maybe it's just me but I think those objecting are being two harsh and many stories fictional and really non-fictional show some pretty horrible treatment of women and the human race overall. The story itself moves forwards and Sean Runnette is one of, it not the best narrator on Audible, which is how I found this series. I like the take on the disease that afflicts people in the story and hope to learn more about it in future books

Game of Thrones "lite" Vibe from this series.

Top 10

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Last Escape: A Dystopian Society in a Post Apocalyptic World?

I am binge reading so all books are meshing into one epic saga.

If you could rename The Last Escape: A Dystopian Society in a Post Apocalyptic World, what would you call it?

Love the name

Any additional comments?

I was drawn in by the zombie carrot but these "infected" are not the only selling point of the story. There is a Game of Thrones type political scramble where everyone thinks they would be a better leader and are plotting against each other as things go to heck. Although it is not nearly as complex as GOT, the authors are obviously learning to work together the characters are developing nicely and the plots are getting more complex and intertwined.

Great 2nd in series

I am really enjoying this series. I find it amusing that so much information could be lost in a future society. I love that in such a male driven & ruled world we have a couple of strong defiant women. The story is completely original yet can remind me of other series at times too.
I am eager to find out what the fate of each character is. Starting the next one tomorrow.
The narrator is really good and I would listen to more by him if given a chance.

Another wonderful surprise

I’ll be honest, I purchased these books because Sean Runnette was the story teller. I love the story, but Sean Runnette brings it to life. The characters are so well written that you hate the ones who are hateful and love the ones who are righteous......do yourself a favor and buy these books.

Rapid misogyny

Even with the preface...this books incessant misogyny gets a little old after a while.

Like the story, narrator not as much

I manually tag the first book, and thought I'd try audible for the second. I really enjoy the story, but the narrator's voice wore on me through the last chapters. I'm sure this is a matter of preference though. Would recommend.

Religion vs Science

I very much enjoy the aspect of how these two take on religion and science. I don't understand how people decide that religion is superstition though, it feels like they are reaching into our time and pulling out our knowledge of science and applying it to people who would know nothing beyond what they are told. Especially those who have never seen a book, much less be able to read one if they saw it. Overall though I enjoy the book and I enjoy seeing how these two view political and religious tensions.
