Description

After a long day of prepping a house for painting, all Gus Berry wanted was the night off to spend some time with his girlfriend and relax before having to return to work the next morning. But that isn’t going to happen. Because Gus’s co-worker Benny has found a one-night job at the local Mollymart East, a job that has to be done by morning. If Gus and his paint crew can complete the work by then, it could mean huge business with a respected, established grocery store chain.

But as Gus and his fellow painters soon discover, the much-anticipated zombie apocalypse doesn’t start with a bang. It starts on a Monday. And barricading themselves inside a megastore isn’t the end.

It’s just the beginning.

Gus... Redefining the ‘Everyman!'

I thought I got to know what shaped Gus in the short story “The Hospital.” "The Mountain Man Prequel" provides information never before mentioned about his past. What a treat to learn about his pre-apocalypse job, friends and girlfriend. Each had a profound impact on his identity and how he looked at the world during that time. This information answers a lot of questions about why he (most likely) coped and developed as he did during the rest of the series.

Gus's self-deprecation is just so endearing, and love his what you see is what you get mentality... epitomizing the reluctant hero, who always mans-up when the chips are down. I would want him in my corner during an apocalypse, that is for sure.

The dry humor which came out of Gus's mouth was infectious. The type of guy that would be fun to hang out with, and loyal to a fault... Proving this in his selfless actions and the lengths he went to find his girlfriend,Tammy. Nuff said!

Much thanks to both Mr. Blackmore and Mr. Bray, for providing yet another (much appreciated) opportunity to venture back into one of my favorite places to visit... Gus’s world! Here's to hoping we have not heard the last from him. :- )

Blackmore has no idea

How awesome this series is and how awesome Gus is. Netflix, please make this into a series. I hope there is a second prequel between this one and book 1.. there seems to be room for one... about 1+ years worth before meeting Scott. I loved it... just when there was nothing out there I see this one and I couldn't be happier. RC Bray didn't skip a beat.. one of the best narrators out there.

Keith and R C team up for another heart stopper

Great book with the best narrator on this planet!! I had always wondered how Gus got to where we was, now we know. We also get a look at the type of man Gus was before the SHTF. Great writing I was hooked from the start and having R C Bray narrate for you doesn't hurt either!!

Thank you!!!

I loved the Mountain Man series, have listened to it a few times now. The story and narrator are great and it is easy to relate to Gus and the challenges he faces.
When I read online that there would be no more books in the Mountain Man series I was quite disappointed. Then I saw this book was released and I quickly bought it and listened to it in one day. it didn't let me down, it closed the loop on a lot of back stories and provided the zombie fighting action that I enjoy.

Thank you for writing this book! Please think about writing another Mountain Man book in the future.

A great addition to the story

A perfect prelude to an excellent story. Narrator was excellent as always. If you enjoyed the other books, you'll enjoy this one..

Finally!!!!!!!!!!

I've been waiting for this!!! Didn't care if it was a sequel or prequel, but, def needed more Gus in my life. The stuff that vomits from his mouth is literary gold. Start here, and move through the rest of the books. You will not be disappointed

Amazing!

I have not listened to any of the Mountain Man series so this is the beginning for me, not a prequel. This was such an exciting, scary, anxious, soul wretching and inspiring story I can't wait for this next; which I purchased well before finishing this one.
And once again, I think I could sit through R. C. Bray reading the IRS Tax Regulation Code in its entirety. I've listened to several series read by Mr. Bray and don't think I have heard a duplicated voice yet! Thank you sir.

Gus Berry begingings expertly told by RC Bray

Man, Keith C Blackmore did not disappoint with the prequel for the Mountain Man book series. RC Bray who is my absolute favorite narrator made Gus Berry come alive again. The Book has some laughs, chills, and terror all wrapped in one neat package. I would listen to the store while going on my early morning walks and more than once would look over my shoulder thinking a zombie was coming out between a house to come eat me.
Well Done Keith C. Blackmore and RC Bray! Bravo...Wish we could keep the Gus Berry stories going, but only if RC Bray keeps narrating the stories.

one of the best series I have read this far

one epic story stretching over several years and giving some interesting new ideas about the long-term development of life after the zombie apocalypse and the assumed longevity of zombies. try it! Not to forget the speaker: his rendering is a delight!
