Summary

UKD1

"What would happen if……?"

Many people ask themselves the question, but how many actually do something about it?

Tom lives in Birmingham, England, with his family. After asking himself the question and researching what could happen, he decided it wouldn’t do any harm to be a little bit prepared. Just in case.

He discovers the world is going to be hit by a massive coronal mass ejection from the sun, which will turn the whole planet dark. He only has a few days to get ready. Will they survive?

People want what they have, but is he prepared to kill to protect it?

UKD2

Contact with Jerry’s brother has been made. Having defied all the odds and survived, will the group make it through the trials to come?

They’ve fought off brutal attacks and taken lives to protect their loved ones. Will the arrival of the army bring them security?

The answer is no. Powerful enemies are out there who will risk everything to take what they have. Will they be able to defeat them and keep everyone safe?

Continue to follow Tom, his family, his neighbors and friends as they face new challenges and threats to their very existence.

They are surviving. Would you?

UKD3

Winter is setting in, and the group must battle the worsening weather, as well as others who want to annihilate them. Cut off from any assistance the government can provide, they realize how tenuous their grip on survival is.

Facing plagues of rats, disease and death, the group is forced to make a fateful decision: evacuate the compound so that some can survive the disease; those who stay to care for family who have succumbed to the plague face almost certain death.

Ok

Ok story and a interesting take on a apocalypse but at times the story was ludicrous.

Most of the female characters are portrayed has gossiping feeble women

The narrator wasn’t the best with many of the characters sounding the same

Terrible

The book had a promising start but became increasingly ridiculous .
A waste of time.

Very underwhelming

I was very underwhelmed with this novel. Gave up halfway because it was all about how great TOM WAS.

Great idea for the plot

The premise is a great idea and worth a read/listen to if you enjoy apocalyptic stories but a few plot holes and got a bit silly with appearance of a real life well known person (and his family) being involved.

Personally didn't like the story being told in the past tense - from the perspective of the main character reminiscing on all that happened. Sort of apocalyptic horror in the style of 'My day at the beach' by Sarah age 9

Good plot, great narration - writing could be better

Firstly - having read some reviews, I can confirm I listened to the entirety of the book.

Plus point 1 - Plot

The author well and truly falls into the category of "plotter" (Google plotter Vs pantser) - and has the standard pitfalls of being one.

The actual bones of the story are good, and play out well enough to keep you listening.

Plus point 2 - narrator

I fully rate Mr Dickson's performance, it's very akin to the undead series set in the UK.

Negative point - plotter

A lot of the characters seem a little one dimensional, and it does distract from the story.

Negative point - tense

The author does mix tenses a fair bit, and at times it can be distracting.

Overall - worth a listen

Disappointing

A great start. I love the apocalyptic type books normally. The introduction of all the Royal family as all having survived was a bridge too far.

Turned it from a dubious story to a juvenile one.

Shame as there is not enough in this genre but there are some really good listens out there and as this story progresses it is clear it is not one of them.

If you want some decent easy listening go for Devon C Ford or the first two books by Joshua Gayou. Both almost easy listening but more depth.

Excellent

Such a refreshing change to read/ listen to a post apoc set in the UK. Chris Harris joins an excellent group of authors who have produced great stories with a UK reality.
I loved that the characters were every day people living normal lives, who battled for a chance to survive a incredible situation.
The story was fast paced and kept me listening until the early hours! Brilliant!

Unrealistic and slow

Whilst the author had covered very well what would be needed for prepping, the story itself was very slow. Any action was quickly wrapped up with a neat bow, making it a bit unrealistic and boring really. Additionally, the royal family is brought into it, making it all just a bit too fairytale for my liking.

Gripping survival story

Based in Birmingham, that's a good start, my home town. A well put together story that has you wondering if it happened how you'd survive. There are many people now storing up essentials incase this happens. How would you fare???

Entertaining.

This is a hard book to review, there was a lot to like, but there was also things that were..... a little too easy. The plot was good but there were elements that I didn't like. It starts when Tom is researching about prepping and stumbles upon the fact that a CME is about to happen. He realises he needs to prepare for it and the first book kind of focuses on that. The rest is their struggle to survive after the CME hits.

For me, a major thing I didn't like was the fact that I felt like everything was too easy for Tom and the rest. Apart from having enough money to buy everything before hand, he also meets someone who is also a prepper and knows what's going to happen, oh and he also happens to have contacts high up in the military. The community Tom lives in bands together too easily too. They seemed to have everything they needed and then some. The plot just didn't flow as well as I liked and felt more like telling than showing. It was a good story, though not great.

In all, it's an enjoyable read and it was nice to read one set in the UK and one where it didn't just rely on guns to survive.

A. W. Dickson read this well. He had good cadences and voices for the different characters and his performance was really good.

I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Loved this book!!

I have read my share of post apocalyptic books and this one is definitely at the top of my list. Not overdone with dramatic scenes of battle and descriptions of firearms and military terms this story relates to the everyday human and community who just wants and needs to survive after a cataclysmic event. I became attached the the characters and their struggles to survive and enjoyed the fact that it brought a realistic human experience to the story. Really enjoyed this book and highly recommend. ..... and it makes me want to move to the UK!!!

Great series

I rather enjoy this unique look at a EMP apocalypse in the UK. The ability to prepare and thoughtful preparation that this book offered was entertaining. I recommend this book for anyone who loves prepping or apocalypse books.
