Armed with only his wit and the most unexpected of allies, the teenager struggles to survive in a wasteland filled with unspeakable horrors.

Excellent storytelling of a lively yarn

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Depends entirely on the friend.

If it's someone who enjoys a good yarn, but isn't overly bothered by the occasional plot hole and dodgy science, then yes. Certainly the tale is told well, with the narration being rich in character and quite engaging.

If you’ve listened to books by E. J. Robinson before, how does this one compare?

I have not.

What does Malk Williams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Malk Williams provides a fine range of characterisation; the characters each had easily identifiable voices, and the tale in general was told with an engaging level of expression and pace.

Initially - the draw of an Audiobook was the opportunity to use this as 'travel entertainment' with my family while travelling north to Scotland.

That said - I am someone who likes fairly hard science in his SF, so I'm not really the target audience for this book... indeed if it hadn't been an audio-book that I could stick on 'in the background' while driving, I probably would quite probably have abandoned this book part way through.

So - what Malk 'brought to the story' for me was a relatively painless way to get to the end of the tale and find out 'what happens'.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

"As stirring tale of survival in a dystopian post apocalyptic future filled with mutants and savage tribes"

With a footnote of:

"Warning - may not contain believable science"

Any additional comments?

Fairly stock science fantasy.

Loved it!

What did you like most about Robinson Crusoe 2244?

This book was great! It's been many years since I've read the original Robinson Crusoe and I don't remember much about it so I'm not sure of the similarities. I'd see if I could find an audio version of it, but after listening to this I'm afraid I'd probably not enjoy the original as much! lol This is definitely worth listening to! Great performance by Malk Williams as well!

Must read for sci fi junkies.

Reminds me of a good Heinlein juvenile novel, seeming written for a younger audience but entertain for adults as well. We'll worth the credit.

Why write a book when you can just write a script?

If you are someone who loves summer blockbuster action movies, you will love this book. If you are someone who likes well-written literature, then perhaps you should avoid the book. It reads more like a script from a movie than a book. Character development, realistic world building and believable plotting is all sacrificed for action and fast fast pacing. It's enjoyable and not too badly written at first, but gets worse and worse as you realize you don't really know anything about the characters or their environment. The ending is particularly bad and rivals most movies in terms of wrapping things up in unrealistic and incomprehensible ways. I honestly can't understand where all the good reviews come from. There are many people who will like this book. It's just most of them don't actually read books.
