Description

Nothing has gone according to plan.

To Captain Lee Harden, Project Hometown feels like a distant dream and the completion of his mission seems unattainable. Wounded and weaponless, he has stumbled upon a group of survivors that seems willing to help. But a tragedy in the group causes a deep rift to come to light and forces him into action. In the chaos of the world outside, Lee is pursued by a new threat: someone who will stop at nothing to get what he has.

The Remaining: Aftermath is the second book in the best-selling The Remaining series.

Great Listen But Frustrating Character

If you could sum up The Remaining: Aftermath in three words, what would they be?

WHY DO THAT?

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Let me say right off the bat, this is a good book and worth the listen. The writing is crisp and dialogue is well done....

But, I have a very hard time believing in the main character. A highly trained soldier who is supposed to bring people together after the plague. But he makes very poor decisions for someone who is supposed to be giving survivors what they need to re-create society. I found myself constantly saying to myself "why would he do THAT?"

For example:
1. (book 1) OK. I saved this young kid who is traumatized and unstable. Should I should leave him in my bunker/house playing video games, promise to be back in a few hours and go rescue some people that may or may not be on the roof of their house, on a street that I'm guessing they live on, several miles away. Yes, you should. I mean, what's the worst that could happen?

2. So-and-so suddenly wants to help you save the camp, despite being weak and ineffective, never used a gun, has nothing to add to the mission and could be more useful back at camp? "Sure come along. After all, what's the worst that could happen?"

3. So-and-so asks you to check on her sister in a town that something bad happened in. "Sure I will do that, no matter what. Because you were nice to me, despite my having spent all of two minutes with you. I mean, really, what's the worst that could happen?"

3. I got supplies that will save the entire camp and give us a leg-up on the (known) bad guys. We'll be back to camp in an hour or two. Yay! "But first, I'll just leave them lightly guarded in an unknown town, in a world where people are dying left and right, from infected hordes and bad guys, and go wandering in search of some person that I've never seen, couldn't recognize and is probably dead. What's the worst that could happen?

It got frustrating.

Nevertheless, I got book three. So although the main character is unbelievable (to me at least) he is strong and likeable. The secondary characters are mostly awesome. Other reviewers have pointed out that the author likes his men manly and his womenfolk mostly weak and playing a strictly supporting role - you know, cooking, cleaning and nursing. While it didn't really alter my enjoyment it was a noticeable story flaw. Not once did a woman/girl pick up a gun and actually fight.

Still let me say it one more time: Good book. Worth the listen.
The narrator is top notch.

What about Christian Rummel’s performance did you like?

He does a great job of subtly changing his tone/accent/cadence for each character to make it easy to follow along with who is speaking. He truly made this more enjoyable.

A good listen

“The Remaining: Aftermath” picks up and completes the story that “The Remaining” left hanging. It does a good job of mixing action and plot development and also closes the loop on the story from the first book and doesn't leave any big cliffhangers. The story is good and the characters are fun, and while not quite zombies the infected are a good substitute for someone who’s looking for a more realistic horror.

Mr Runnel does a great job with the story and really brings the story to life!

this continuation is better than the first book

The first book was annoying for all the stupid errors the "hero" made. And I still maintain that he broke protocol and left the bunker nearly 2 weeks before he was supposed to. And why, for sanity's sake were those 48 guys not emailing each other about this situation? Were they all just supposed to meet up with each other without communication and without plan? That's no way to run the salvation of civilization.

But this series is very captivating. In this book, some mysteries will be solved, some bad guys taken down, and some good guys sacrificed. We cannot know our reactions to such situations until we are in them. We should all hope to perform so well. There's lots of action, and human drama, so it works out to be a very human story. I am so glad that the word Zombie has never been mentioned. I steer clear of those!

I wish the editors would correct grammar and word choice, but editors don't seem to do that anymore. Sigh.

Christian Rummel is a great narrator. He makes a few mistakes here, and you can't always tell who's a female, but in all he does a fine job, and adds a lot to the story.

Guns & Ammo....

OK, I have listen to the first book and I've tried to listen to the second book. There is very little "infected action" in either book as compared to all the trials and tribulations of finally getting there. The story is very tedious and slow moving and I feel like this must be what it is like to read a guns and ammo magazine. Lots of manly macho stuff and yelling. Lee, the so called bonding element of the story, doesn't really seem to have a personality that you can attach yourself to. The only character in the whole series that I even felt compelled to have feelings toward was Tango, his dog, and you know what happens to the character you end up liking…

Once again Molles delivers!

I started "The Remaining" series having never heard of DJ Molles. WOW!! I now know that I was really missing out. This is a great story with nonstop action and rich characters. The narration was great too. This is WAY bigger than what I expected and couldn't wait to get in the car or on the riding mower to listen to the story. All four books done back to back and now I'm sitting on the edge of my seat hoping the next one comes sooner than later.

Giving up; can't take the idiocy.

Had my reservations with the first book and should have saved myself a credit with the sequel. The main character makes idiotic decisions that no one would make in these situations. I'm not giving away any spoilers since anyone who listened to the first book knows that the main character decides to go get supplies from his bunker while everyone in the camp is starving and on their last meal. So what does he do once he gets a truck load of food, medicine and weapons? Any other person would return back to camp but no, not this guy. He decides to drive said truck full of supplies to a city that's known to be infested with zombies and see if anyone is still alive. Really? I won't give away any details but this stupid decision is what leads to all the problems that occurs in the story.

There were so many times I just wanted the main character to get bitten, shot, stabbed, or just die a quick death so the book would end.

I really wanted to love it

Is there anything you would change about this book?

SPOILERS***SPOLIERS***
The main character, Lee, makes some of the dumbest choices compared to his background. Not even a couch commando would divert from a relatively easy 30 mile return trip, with a truck full of life or death supplies for a starving community, to recon a town and maybe drop off a radio to someone that may or may not be dead. Why didn't the author have him drop off the supplies and return to the town, then things could have gone sideways? Or have them head back and Doc go crazy somewhere on the road? I could get past some of the dumb choices he made in the first book, but this is insanity.

What could D. J. Molles have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Have a more believable scenario that didn't cause me to skip chapters to end the pain of hearing the story play out in an unbelievable way.

Have you listened to any of Christian Rummel’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, the reading was great.

read Gary D 10-29-14

Read Gary D’s review, it perfectly sums up book 1 & 2- sort by “most helpful”…titled ”Great Listen But Frustrating Character".

I loved our hero, he had a good heart and always tried to do the right thing but good grief, so many irrational decisions!

I know writers can have characters act rationally and intelligently AND create a great story, it’s just harder to do I guess.

Lots of gore, cursing and misogyny- as Gary states…“Not once did a woman/girl pick up a gun and actually fight”- too much whining and helplessness.

The reader was just fine….not sure if I will continue the series.

EDGE OF YOUR SEAT ACTION PACKED HORROR

28 DAYS + WALKING DEAD + ZOMBIE FALLOUT + DAY BY DAY ARMAGEDDON = THE REMAINING!

AFTER SPENDING THE YEAR WADING THROUGH HORRIBLE ZOMBIE/APOCALYPTIC BOOKS I FINALLY FEEL THE WASTED CREDITS REDEEMED BY D.J. MOLLES THE REAMING SERIES. THOUGHT I WAS NOT GOING TO LIKE THIS SERIES AS MOST BOOKS INVOLVE EX MILITARY TRYING TO SURVIVE DURING A ZOMBIE OUTBREAK BUT WOW WAS I GLAD I TOOK A CHANCE. I HAVE FINISHED ALL FOUR BOOKS IN LESS THAN TWO WEEKS. I COULD NOT PUT THE BOOK DOWN.

LEE (MAIN CHARACTER) IS MY HERO. I WOULD LIKE THIS BOOK TO BE MADE INTO A MOVIE OR TELEVISION SERIES.

ZOMBIES IN THE STORY ARE HORRIFYING. SCENARIOS INVOLVING HUMANS ARE HORRIFYING. THIS IS A HORROR BOOK!

NARRATOR WAS EXCELLENT!!!!!

awesome follow-up! couldn't stop listening!

Where does The Remaining: Aftermath rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

so far, the first two books rank really high on my favorite end of the world / zombie stories. this series is definitely in my top 5.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Remaining: Aftermath?

whew! there were a few! but i can't say b/c it'd spoil other listener's experience.

Any additional comments?

this is an excellent follow-up! no sophomore slump at all!

as the story opens, lee has to prove he is what he says he is- someone who truly wants to help. lee and those volunteering to help him must find some gas so they can make it to one of his bunker. i like how nothing comes easy. once again, i must mention pacing and storytelling. most authors in zombie stories brush off the act of getting gas but not d.j. mollies! he believably and realistically builds tension around the act of looking for cars with gas and siphoning it. you can feel the tension and nervousness the characters feel. i mean i felt myself being really quiet while listening to that part. i would like to thank the editor for helping d.j. know just how much time and description should be spent on the different parts of the story.

as the story progresses, we learn more about milo, and he truly is a vile psychopath. lee and milo are heading into a confrontation, but will lee's mission outweigh his feelings for milo? book 2 further develops some of the characters at camp ryder and introduces new characters. i liked the supporting characters.you know the author does a good job when you actually loathe some of the characters he introduces you to.

i must say most end of the world / zombie have a crazy christian pastor, who is usually an over the top cartoony caricature, but d.j. mollies does it correctly- a man who knows just what to say and when, not preachy at all. realistic while holding an m-4. lol

once again, the pacing of the story is superb! so far, these first two books have some of the best pacing i've listened to, and to be honest, i think that's one of the reasons why these two books have shot up my list of all time favorite end of the world / zombie stories.

talking about zombies, i really like the direction the author is taking. for once, the infected really are something to fear even with machine guns.

there is a shocking moment in this story, and i had to rewind b/c i was like what the heck just happened.

i was extremely satisfied with how this book closed, albeit a little sad, and i am looking forward to see how things progress in the 3rd book.
