Have you listened to any of Kevin Pierce’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Kevin Pierce has a very distinctive voice and style. I’ve listened to many of his performances and is one of the few performers along with Ray Porter that I will seek out. This book is no exception.
Any additional comments?
This book is an interesting exploration of the main character’s general dislike of people and his coping methods both prior to and during a breakdown. He learns to reach out to people and form relationships that are beneficial to both himself and those he meets. That gives things a different flavor. His profession as a writer also adds dimension. A budding romantic relationship is handled well, tastefully and rounds out the character development perfectly.
He is a pretty realistic representation of what an average prepper oriented person would do and think in a breakdown. There are a couple scenes where I was thinking no, don’t do that or are you crazy, but most of the time things are plausible.
Kevin Pierce does his usual excellent job of narration and covers a variety of characters well. Kevin owns this genre for a reason and this book is no exception. That being said, every other book outside this genre has been well done as well.
I hope there will be a part two of this book as it lends itself to expansion of the situations and characters..
