Description

Joe and Meg Birch have saved for years to take the trip of a lifetime. On the last night of their cruise, while most of the passengers are sleep - the unthinkable occurs. A suspected electromagnetic pulse (EMP) damages most of the cruise ship's critical systems, forcing the crew to divert the remaining power to essential systems.

While the massive ship struggles in rough seas, the seasick passengers grow increasingly uneasy about their situation. The flow of food and drinks has been significantly reduced, air-conditioning is non-existent, and the ship's security team is visibly armed. What they don't know is that the ship has lost contact with the mainland, and their captain is on the verge of making life-altering decision for all of them.

Skeptical of the conditions onshore and unwilling to pull into the ship's homeport without the assistance of local pilot craft, the captain elects to leave the area and seek safe harbor to the south. There's just one catch. The ship only carries enough food and fuel to last a few more days - and their destination remains uncertain. The geographical scope and magnitude of the damage caused by the mysterious event remains unknown to the crew.

With Joe and Meg's prospect of returning home about to slip away, the Birchs face an agonizing choice. Stay with the ship and take a chance on the Captain - or steal a lifeboat and try to return home. Joined by like-minded passengers and a few salty crewmembers, they decide to make their own destiny - despite the unknown dangers.

The Mutiny chronicles this impossible, gut-wrenching journey to get home, where it quickly becomes obvious that THEIR STORY IS FAR FROM OVER!

The story starts well ends with a agenda.

Somewhere around the landing on shore you can tell it’s written by someone with a agenda. Clearly you can tell this is targeted to show certain groups helpless and some clueless as to what’s happening. The characters seem completely clueless as to why the government would be doing what they are doing though any reasonable person would have been able to identify a defensive posture of the coast guard. So the story kinda sucks after that for me because no one in their right minds would look at that and identify them as attacking citizen. Total disregard to any actual survival nothing in this stories lends in prepping for any sort of disaster in fact it points to prepping a laughs at it. In other words the moral of this story is sit back and let the government do its thing unquestioned and you would have not had to go through all of that. I believe that for the most part the majority of the government does have our best interests at heart. Anyone with a brain can see this story isn’t thought through the prospective of being prepared for disasters in fact it says don’t worry the government will help you the last few lines of the book clearly states this.

A different kind of post-apocalyptic story

The good: this was different from other books in this genre, which was somewhat refreshing. Finally, a book where people don't start immediately shooting each other and the protagonists aren't ex-military preppers.

The not-so good: the ending, while different, is fairly contrived. It feels like the author was paid to write a post-apocalyptic story with this kind of ending (maybe for political purposes??). After having listened to the entirety of it, many parts that originally didn't make sense fell into place to fit forced/contrived ending.

I've read several of these books and am still looking for one down the middle (maybe another one like One Second After) that isn't a complete "shoot 'em up" or like this one which is far from that.

Narration: the narrator sounded like he was reading an instruction manual. He has a very "matter-of-fact" way of reading. It wasn't the worst I've heard by any means, but he is also a far shot from Kevin Pierce.

Take-away: If you are new to the post-apocalyptic genre start with One Second After or Alas Babylon. If you've read a lot of these and want something that is different, give this one a try.

The dialogue will drive you crazy everything is followed by said frank said tom said said said!!!!!
Not much happens no real surprise no real action everyone is happy food is everywhere no crime
a bit of a farce
bought it and was driving on a long trip so listened to most of it then started fast-forwarding
disappointing

well narrated and and and an interesting angle

the narration realy makes this better. and the basic premise is good, the angle from which the story is told realy makes it work..
if I were to say something that detracts from the experiences it would be repetitive use of "now (this person) is walking up" some stage direction is better left out or written after the statement..
even a bit of variation is nice...

This Is One Tough Listen, My Ears Hurt

Can I get my credit back...please? I have about eight hours left - I may just call it quits. Interesting story, but executed wrong. There are several parts that go on and on and on and on. This group of characters should just be put out of their misery. Even the narrator (whom I liked in Steven Konkoly's, "Alex Fletcher Series") seemed like he was bored reading this.

Enjoyable

Definitely light “reading”. The dialogue was pretty weak. It struggled and slowed as the characters interacted. The strong part was the story and premise, both super interesting.

surprising book

I thought this was just a basic post apocalyptic book but as it went on it got better and better and had a few surprises thrown in. I highly recommend it.
