Great follow on from The hospital
Any additional comments?
This is a great zombie type book, I loved it ! ONE BIG problem though - I need the next one! it has left me hanging by a thread!!!!
It would be great if Audiable could e-mail when the next book from a series comes out - I am worried I may miss it !?
This author hasn't got any other books here, which is a shame, as I would take a look!

THE HUMANS SCARED ME MORE THAN THE ZOMBIES!
How disturbing to listen to all the life threatening risks Gus and Scott took to set up a phenomenal safe house for most of the book and then have to hear the devastation as this zombie safe-house utopia is completely overturned, and not because of the zombies! How tragic to think extending a helping hand to another human in dire straights could turn so diabolical!
The zombies have no consciousness and know not what they do. Whereas, just when the humans should be pulling together to fight for humankind and its future existence, greed, selfishness, desire, and violence are caused at their own hands! How generally sad this was to hear.
Since I am a late comer to this series, The first book I actually heard was the free download of "The Hospital." As a result, I had the advantage of having a unique perspective and opportunity to know about "Alice the nurse" and what she did to Gus prior to listening to "Mountain Man." From the reviews I read, it seems most listeners heard "Mountain Man" first because "The Hospital" was not available on audible until relatively recently. It was helpful for me (as a listener) to know about Gus's experience with Alice at the hospital, and exactly what happened to him before this book, as it explained a lot about why he is approaching life during the apocalypse as he has (alcohol abuse, isolationist) and why he may be coping and adapting in a manner which is concerning, to say the least.
This book not only provides exceptionally well written, gruesome, nonstop zombie action which I love, it has the added bonus of providing us with a realistic, thought provoking message on human nature. There are good people and self-serving ones, and who we fundamentally are as individuals does not change during good times or horrific ones. As the saying goes:
"A zebra will never change his/her stripes" This book reiterates that sentiment perfectly in my opinion. Narration by R.C. Bray is stellar. I thought he especially shined Gus had trouble speaking (won't give away why) for a while. Sounded very realistic and I could almost feel how it must have been for him. Terrific!

Brilliantly written, suspenseful and exciting ride
What made the experience of listening to Mountain Man the most enjoyable?
A real page turner. Couldn't fault this author. The book was easy to read whilst being excellently written and at the perfect pace. Some authors seem to grind out books for the sake of adding more sequels, but this is not the case here. Each of the few books in this series are as good as each other, being the best I've heard on audible.
Even though the author could have easily sold more books in the series he hasn't.
What does R. C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Now am a fan of R.C. Bray and have followed this narrator.
