Better than Book 1

In my review of book 1 I noted that the Voice Acting was Cheesy that was not the case in this book. As it is the middle book in the Trilogy (I dunno if a 4th book will be released) the story seemed a bit short & I found the end wanting. that said I would recommend this book because overall the Story is fairly good & plausible.

Great story, horrible narration/bad fake accents

I absolutely love the author and story. The plot follows a direct timeline and is easy to follow. The characters are easy to relate to and even show good character growth. The narration is terrible and almost hard to listen to. I am living in Alabama and even live in one of the places mentioned in the book, and these are the worst "southern" accents I have ever heard. Literally no one I know sounds like that that lives here. Every girl sounds the exact same and is hard to dictate who is talking sometimes. The guys and a little better, but not much. Not everyone has a thick southern drawl here. Just terrible narration overall, but a great story.

Another Great EMP Book!

This, the second book in the series is an amazing continuation of great first book. As with the first I honk he character development goes a long way to making the story believable. The bad decisions and decline of food people scattered throughout be series give these books a realistic feel. Can't wait for Book #3!

is it over yet?

Don't feel bad about skipping over this book. It is painfully slow and every single little detail is described. They are always praying about something. I could even fast forward 30 seconds and they would still be praying about one thing or another. The author pushes his Baptist beliefs throughout the character interactions to a point of taking away from the story. It is so obvious you can see it coming.

The narrating is so inconsistent it is hard to keep listening or keep up. The narrators will start with what they think is a Southern accent and move to a New York accent and then try to have a black accent but the black accent will turn back to a New York accent midway through the book. It's amazing this audio was released with this narration.

I am so glad this book is over and won't be reading any sequels.

Review

The plot thickens in the 2nd book of 3, of Once Upon An Apocalypse. Great character development, also in this book. I love his writing style. Practical for everyday use, and in emergencies. Provides a good moral compass, most importantly.

Awesome!

What an awesome book, more than a story, also an education on what would most likely happen in that event.

Don’t waste your money

Returned due to horrible horrible narration. I just couldn’t take it. Not much worse than fake southern accents.

Just as engaging as Book I

I think we all know of a person like Jimmy Wright. His character was so irritating to me, that I felt like jumping into the book to slap him!!!! What a NO-GOOD!
Yet, here again… so little prepared! Can’t read fast enough to see if/when John is coming.
