I liked the story with it's mix of post apocalyptic, dystopian and zompoc. It had several stories within stories, which made it an interesting listen, however I found the narration a difficult listen. There were several errors where lines were repeated and it just didn't flow with the narrator trying to create too many character voices, especially the "journal writing voice" which was in my opinion just uncomfortable.

The start of this book feels like I wandered into a sequel and was getting a summary of book one. I had to double check that there wasn't a prior book. The writing is choppy and full of clichéd statements, and the plot line jumps around in fits and starts with detail in some places and then a summarization in others. The characters don't necessarily act in ways that I would think someone would act two years into a collapse situation. There areto many convenient plot twists that don't add to the realism of the book. Having an EMP, Yellowstone blowing and zombies is a bit of overkill as well. There may be a sequel to this book, but I won't bother.
The narrator isn't particularly effective either and struggles with the choppy writing and plot. Using a female voice for primarily male characters is distracting and not a good foray into audiobooks.
