Gripping!!

As an avid fan of apocalyptic/post apocalyptic fiction, this was a gem!! Great plot, wonderful voice characterizations and (mostly) believable interactions. I never liked audiobooks because I found them slow and the narration annoying …but an immersive podcast? I’m hooked!

Up to Episode 6

The trial of Hunter was not realistic at all!

Wokeness over storytelling.

The writers let woke left wing messaging get in the way of what could have been an interesting story. But what do you expect these days.
