I have enjoyed listening to this a bit more than I thought I would !!
It's been in my Audible library for ages now, and I've always skipped it for other books of higher quality / or better known authors / titles !!!
BUT,......on a whim, I thought what the hell, and,.......
I have actually quite enjoyed it, its not a ground-breaking story or premise, but solid enough to be engaged in the storyline & want too continue on to the 2nd book !!!
Sadly I don't think as I have done in the past, it will / would be a book I will return to at a later date & listen to again !!!
The characters are simply put, & uncomplicated, easy to relate too. Which makes it easier for a shorter book, and you can just crack on with the story, without going into long characterizations & details which can make the start of some books tedious !!
The story is a bit of a different "Post Apocalyptic" one to the usual ones & x1 of the reasons I gave it a try !!! Although, having thought about it, there is actually a lack of real details on exactly what happened & why !?! Maybe more will come in the 2nd book,.....
Overall, its not ever going to be a "Bestseller" !!! But as it is a relatively short audio book, it has been good enough to pass a few hours & get some enjoyment from !!!
HAVING NO MANNERS COMES WITH A COST
This is not going to be a classic. It is a little different. No zombies, but seemingly normal people who kill and than commit suicide. It is hard to tell who the bad guys are until they try and kill you. This makes for a more horrifying situation than zombies who are obviously zombies. The conspiracy behind how these people became monsters is a little unique. I have only read one other book with a similar type of scenario, unless you count the one with the Nazi's.
GOLF USUALLY BORED ME TO TEARS, I LIKE MY ACTION FAST AND SWIFT
The main characters are okay. The plot has some holes you can fly a plane through, but I could not stop listening and I am at lost to as to why. Best I can figure is that it did stay entertaining and I wanted to know who and what was behind the whole thing.
WHEN I START SOMETHING I LIKE TO FINISH IT AS QHICKLY AND EFFICIENTLY AS POSSIBLE.
If the next book goes on sale, I will buy it, but I don't think I am going to spend a whole credit.

I really liked this story. It was very original when dealing with other books in a zombie, or post apocalypse category. Two brothers on vacation scrape by to try and save humanity.
