Description

Charlie finds herself caught in the city as it degenerates into chaos following an EMP attack.

Charlie, a successful pharmaceutical sales rep, has no background in prepping or survival. Thrust into a do or die situation, she quickly learns that leaders in Washington are working to change the country as she knows it. Her world has become a race to freedom while attempting to avoid capture by the new government's agents. She must do this while trying to escape from a city with millions of residents as food, medicine, and rule of law all disappear.

Can Charlie and her group learn to survive, or will the lack of knowledge become their fatal flaw?

Good book a little hard to follow

Who was your favorite character and why?

Charlie.... after I figured out who she was. A bit of a mystery that went on a little too long

Any additional comments?

This book was hard to follow. A lot of jumping around with little or no background as to what actually happened. You jump right in after the event has happened. I did like the book but really had to go back and listen to a few chapters, thinking I missed something. Dukes narration was a little choppier than usual. Overall enjoyed it after the storyline started coming together.

So Slow...

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I'm only 4 hours in and I can't take it any more. This is like listening to grass grow. I have spent the entire time waiting for some sort of energy to be introduced and it just won't happen.

Also - the use of obscure words isn't doing the story any favors. I really like the Going Home series. This is a let down.

Did Democide inspire you to do anything?

Yes. I stopped listening to it after 4 hrs and restarted the Go Home series again.

Not nearly as good as "Home" series

This is supposed to be book 1 but it starts in the middle of the story. Apparently there is a novella that has the actual beginning. So it assumes you know who the characters are with no background being given. And the narrator makes no effort to do a woman's voice for the character Charlie which made it more confusing. He uses the same voice for both main characters. They start the story a few days after the EMP but you don't know how the group came together. Pretty disappointing. compared to the author's other books.

Who the F is talking

I've read the entire survivalist series was hoping this would be of same quality. Spent the whole book guessing who was talking. Bailing on this series

I am returning it.

Any additional comments?

I couldn't finish it. I found it to be very boring and slow. I think a lot of it has to do with the narrator. It wasn't that he was horrible but he sounded like he was at the library reading to children or even a teacher reading to their class. I do not recommend this book.

I'm already going crazy waiting for the next book!

This is a great start yo the series set in the same continuity as the going home series. The story really draws you in and you can identify with the characters.

Not quite the Home series

I loved the Home series and think I will like this one equally as much as it progresses, but I have a couple of frustrations. The story is a bit disjointed at first with skipping back and forth between character sets. Once you get to know them a bit it's not quite as bad though. Secondly, I like Duke as a narrator (even though he sometimes has 'off' inflections), he gave Charlie zero female characteristics. He did not change his voice in the slightest, even though he does for other females, which makes her portion of the story, well, odd. I can't help but visualize a man, not a woman whenever 'she' speaks.

Anyway, other than those 2 gripes this is shaping up to be a good start to hopefully a long series like Home.

Slow moving, yet boring

Would you try another book from A. American and Walt Browning and/or Duke Fontaine?

I've listened to the entire A.American Home series. This work is not up to his usual standard.After listening to 5 chapters I couldn't figure out where the plot was going, much less get into it. I'm guessing the authorship was more Walt Browning and less A.American. The narrative is stilted and halting. Duke Fontaine reads it like it's his first narration; he doesn't do the book any favors. He was much better reading the Home series. What happened? A narrator can make or break an audio book. Fontaine broke this one.

What was most disappointing about A. American and Walt Browning ’s story?

The narration above all, but the story line was scattered and hard to get into.

How could the performance have been better?

A better narrator. The authors should have spent the extra bucks and hired Scott Brick or George Guidall or Buck Schirner. The authors need to do a rewrite and make it more of an apocalyptic story. It sounds more like a novel written for sensitive teenage girls... or maybe that's who the target audience was intended to be?

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. I returned it after 5 chapters.

Very hard to get into this story.

Without explanation of the characters and story development, the plot was very hard to get into. Did I miss a prelude that set up the story?
