In the second decade of the 21st century, the world is struck by two catastrophes: a new mini-ice age and a plague to dwarf all previous experiences. Rising out of the disaster is the character known to history as "Bandit Six", an American Army officer caught up in the struggle to rebuild the world and prevent the fall of his homeland - despite the best efforts of politicians, both elected and military.
The Last Centurion is a memoir of one possible future, a world that is a darkling mirror of our own. Written "blog-style", it pulls no punches in its descriptions of junk science, bad strategy, and organic farming.
"Ringo excels in the depiction of combat, managing to capture the carnage and horror while maintaining a sense of the absurd....with the unexpected twists that Ringo has made his hallmark." (

My one "re-listen" ! Zombie-free Apocalypse
Yes! I'm on my 5th replay. It's funny, thought-provoking and helped me get through my GCSE Pyschology by giving me examples of a concept being discussed but not being at all boring.
It's engaging, good listening whether on a car journey or while doing housework, and the narrator gives the work life really well, not a monotone the way some narrators do.
This was my second ever purchase on Audible, and while other audiobooks have come and gone, this is still on my iPod and still being listened too.
This is the audiobook that had me trying to convert everyone I met to audiobooks.
It's a little like John Scalzi's Redshirts, as I said in my review of that book, but superior in my opinion.
Oh man. Attitude. Half the humor is in his emphasis, how he portrays the switch from sarcasm to deadpan.
"We are the Last Centurions, and this Rome America shall not fall." Which is the in-story tagline for the "Centurions" TV show and the last line of the book.
I cannot emphasize how much I love this book. I've bought the paperback as a result of the audiobook to lend to people that won't try audiobooks. This book is post-apocalyptic survival (without zombies) at its best.
