Die Hard in the worst storm ever.

Aside from being a little heavy handed with the global warming message, The Last Storm is one heck of an action packed story. As the title of my review says, it's like Die Hard in the middle of the worst storm ever. It's officer Alex Riley's first day on the job and as a massive storm rolls in the apartment building he lives in gets taken over by a group of drug dealers searching for their missing stash, and it's up to him to save his family and the rest of the residents. Great characters and fast paced action kept me entertained from start to finish. I pretty much listened to it straight through.

As always Kevin Pierce delivers another spectacular performance. He's definitely one of my favorite narrators.

Not what I expected

This book is the second I have read by the author.
This title is misleading and so was the sample offered from Audible.
It is a story of a crazed drug dealer more than anything. Elements of the storm were bylines of this plot. Disappointing. I actually checked my title to be sure if downloaded the correct book.

Kevin Pierce was stellar as usual.

not really about a storm

it was a good story and well preformed by the narrator . it was not how ever a story about a storm. the main story was about a drug lord and smuggling drugs. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The storm seems artificial

Most of this story and its suspense revolves around the terror and violence perpetrated by the gang boss and his minions. The storm seems to be an artificial add-in to promote a political agenda. It certainly contributes to the plot, but a more realistic plot device would have accomplished the same thing without the "preachy" politics.

Kevin Pierce delivers an excellent performance.

Outstanding story of course! Grab a jacket!

When Jack Hunt and Kevin Pierce get together, count your time as very well spent listening to the best. I had to listen all in one setting, there was just no putting it down for later.

I always knew Alaska was my least favorite place, now I know why! The good people of Alaska are tough and in this story, they need to be very tough. It's an exciting story of the good, the bad and the very ugly. I was on the edge of my seat all through this thriller. I'm really glad it's not winter now!

Don't wait to add this to your collection of stories you'll want to listen to more than once.

The Last Storm

I can't believe all the reviews saying the story isn't about a storm. The storm nature lashes out with is nothing compared to the storm going on inside between the lives of the characters. The story has been written with style and flair bringing together two forces leading to one hell of a story.

The narration adds to the story and has been narrated perfectly

I was given a copy of this audible free of charge and I'm thrilled to leave my review

This Book Has A Heart of Gold

4.5 out of 5 stars

It’s really weird to read a post-apocalyptic story (especially one narrated by Kevin Pierce) that is just one story. This isn’t a series and there really isn’t much that Hunt could do that would match what happens in The Last Storm. Sure, he could continue their story – but it wouldn’t be the same and wouldn’t even match the pacing that he set up in this book.

What I found most interesting was that this wasn’t just your typical PA book. There was a whole other theme going on. Sure, most PA books have “bad guys” but this was a slight change from that. The storm and subsequent issues that it caused really played in the background to a “what would you do to protect your family” type of a story. Hunt was able to turn the PA tropes on their side a little and played with the apocalypse some too.

The world he created would be fun to read from other angles though. It was at its heart a Cli-Fi book. He doesn’t dive too far into what caused it (really he doesn’t dive into it at all) and we just find out that there is flooding and a massive storm hitting this tiny Alaska town. The town that Hunt describes reminded me of some of the smaller towns I visited on my recent Alaskan cruise. You could tell that if something major happened that they were going to be partially prepared – but also that they would be screwed pretty quickly.

Overall, The Last Storm was a really enjoyable PA and Cli-Fi book that had a heart of gold. I requested a free copy of this book - it has not affected my review in any way.

Fast paced

If you love a book with lots of action that moves along at a fast pace then this book will tick those boxes for you, a crazy drug dealer and a storm of the century combine to create a pressure cooker environment.

The main characters are really well done, they're easy to like and I couldn't help but want them the succeed. In contrast the bad guys were a bit of a stereotype and were a bit one dimensional for most of the book, that changed a bit towards the end.

Overall, it's well written, fast paced and I listened to it all in one day because it kept me wanting to know what would happen next.

The narration is well done, great character voices and a dynamic delivery that matched the action in the book.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Entertaining- BUT FULL of climate change crap!

The story was entertaining but it might as well have been written the Al Gore and his fake science climate change fanatics. So unless you want a bunch of radical climate change “theories” based on no confirmed scientific facts, I’d skip this one. Kevin Piero however does hi usual outstanding job of making a story come to life.

I’ve read other Jack Hunt books and enjoyed them, this one was just too much climate change talk. Mother Nature has been healing the earth for thousands of years, This story could have been about God’s wrath for the way we all live rather than wrapped in greenhouse gas emissions.

It was just okay.

misleading

I thought this book was about one family's struggle to survive a storm. While the family do struggle to survive, during a storm, it is not really the storm that they are in danger from.

Don't bother

The premise seemed quite interesting but the potential became lost in a deluge of global-warming homilies and clichés. If I wanted to become more informed about global warming then I think I'd choose another source for my learning. The characters are one-dimensional and tediously stereo-typical. The narrator did his very best and was certainly pleasant to listen to - even if I was listening to drivel.
