Gag me please

First of all the narrator is great... But this book has more sex than it needs to be. There are barely survival strategies for an EMP. I find myself skipping through these sex scenes because they are similar. spoiler alert!!!
I hate how that these women have been tortured for months and all of a sudden hopping into random guys bed the same day they meet after being "traumatized" REALLY?!?! WHAT SHELTERED HOUSEWIFE IMAGINATION IS THIS? obviously she has never experience rape know someone who has or the emotional trauma real women go through. I couldn't finish this book, gave me a major headache.

Horrible! Unrealistic.

If you are looking for a disaster or apocalyptic genre book don’t buy this one! If you want a book that is mostly porn level sex scenes ( oral, anal, vaginal, teenage male rape, graphic scenes of females and an 18 year old male getting raped) set in a poorly researched/designed Post-EMP world then go ahead.

Graphic rape scenes are constant. The author has little to no concept of the genre or of any aspect of what would be involved in for survival. (Says a single deer will provide sufficient meat for two adults for a year; has people planting seeds directly from a tomato into the ground in the Northeast. And those are just two tiny examples. I could find hundreds of others that make the book a dud.)

The book is filled with dozens upon dozens of long, constant extremely graphic sex scenes. These also sound like they were written by a man who knows nothing about women’s sexuality or desires or needs. Some of these scenes go on for several minutes. Vaginal sex, oral sex between people who haven’t had access to baths in weeks or months or even a year, anal sex, 3-ways, constant rape (including multiple graphic oral and anal rape scenes of an 18 year old male).

It got so bad I had to fast forward through the rape and sex scenes because they were so nasty and constant. I’m no prude. I don’t mind sex scenes in books but this level for a book that seemed to be a disaster type book was ridiculous.

great story the sex scenes were a surprise .

it was a great story the sex scenes very nice surprise . you can tell it was wrote by a woman and she is a very talented author . I kind of wish she went a little bit more in-depth with describing gear and rifles and weapons . I am definitely interested in more of her books .

Well, it's not your dad's apocalypse trilogy...

I get it, it's fiction. But...come on, really? Two million sex scenes? (I hope you get that is hyperbole.) I have listened to erotic stories with less sex. I literally was asking Alexa to fast-forward 5 minutes multiple times to skip one sex scene and within 5 minutes, had to do it again!
It is too bad though, the story was decent and the characters where somewhat likeable, but when I have to listen to tales of every guy able to have 2 to 5 orgasms and cause a woman to have many orgasms in less than three minutes of sex, I actually apologized to my wife for being a terrible lover! No joke, it got that silly.
Also, someone please buy the author a thesaurus. There are many words to describe female anatomy that don't start with a c. Same for male anatomy.
I will not be continuing the series.

Gritty, hardcore future

After the EMP, the US is destroyed. Now FEMA has setup camps that are a step up from concentration camps. Emily, Jennifer and Clarissa meet and form a team to find freedom and love away from the centers. Survivalists rock in this dystopian world.

Couldn’t put it down

I knew it was post apocalypse but never expected such a different look at life at such a difficult time. Just loved it. The narrator deserved 10 stars.

The reader was awful!!!

I probably would have stop listening to the book a long time ago if it wasn't a series and I didn't already purchase it. the reader was like listening to a monotone Keanu Reeves. he had no range of emotion for the characters other than being the difference between male and female. The storyline was decent and explicit. but I didn't mind that part.

Repeditive......and where did all the paper go?

Listen to all 3 books. Not the worst I have heard, however the story became very repetitive (yes - even the sex). I am usually fairly forgiving as far as plot reality goes (and maybe I was just getting bored) but having to manufacture a substitute for paper after 1 year - really. I am not convinced that the paper supplies would be exhausted after 1 year without manufacture. Paper is not the number 1 go to survival item when the world as you know it is ending. Normally something like this would not worry me ...........but for some reason this did.

Have a listen. I would suggest listening to them individually spaced over a reasonable time period rather than consecutively.
