Description

Lauren Russell often wondered why her father had been so adamant about teaching her skills that most other fathers wouldn't even consider teaching their daughters. Ever since she was little, she had been taught how to live and survive outdoors, and how to use firearms to protect herself and those around her. Some of the training had been a bit extreme. Or had it been?

Many of her questions were answered the day the world as she knew it ended. Now, the skills she had been taught serve an essential purpose. They keep her and those she cares about alive.

Even in the sparsely-populated mountains of West Virginia, where she and her family have been forced to relocate for their safety after the collapse, peril lurks around every corner. Normal life has taken on a whole new meaning for Lauren, her family, and the community they have become a part of. In this different world, the new status quo is self-preservation. There is no more middle ground. People either live, or they die.

Lauren's father didn't make it home on the day the world changed forever, and she misses him more than anything. Now, in What's Left of My World, she and her family must learn to endure life's horrors - without him.

Interesting new take on a survival story

Instead of starting, like most survival novels, with a collapse and how people react. This starts off many months after the collapse. Problems and excitement are in full swing. A few flashback sequences fill in some gaps later on to flesh out the characters back story but it's not over done. Lots of details have been added along with story elements that leave the author lots of room to expand on with the sequels.

Lets all hope this NEVER happens.

I am a big fan Love End of the world books, you know zombie apocalypse, EMP stories etc..
I will warn you this is not like any other books in this genre. This book is definitely not for the faint hearted. Though violence is to be expected in these types of books this one has the added violence. Some actually made me cringe that people could be like that, or act like that. This is definitely a story worth reading.
I would've given the story five stars, but I'm not a big fan of people jumping back and forth from the past to the present it could be a tad bit confusing. I understand why it happened but not a fan of to much of it. Things didn't really get wrapped up so I am waiting for book two, I think this was a start to a great series

Great read

Not only is the story very well written but the narrator is awesome as always. The story had some good points to take note of for those of us interested in such. As for Kevin Pierce he has never steered me wrong.

What garbage! nothing to see here, move along

Character seem out of place and dim witted. the writer seem to be clueless on the topics he writes about. Characters want to get dunk or high right after their first encounter. Beer and weed are a huge find even though in reality they could grow one and make moon shine if they so wanted. of course they have a super soldier neighborh with ammo, armored vehicles and PTSD... because all us retired vets have a cache of armor, ammo, and PTSD. main character has no depth and seems unbelievable. by the end I honestly didn't care.

A family’s struggle after the apocalypse

A post-apocalyptic story narrated by Kevin Pierce and an intro by the author explains the books that he read that made him want to get prepared (and write a novel). I mean, how could I not love this? Well, I did. It was totally different than most of the post-apocalyptic books that I’ve read but had a lot in common too.

What’s Left of My World follows Lauren after the world has already started to fall apart. We aren’t told what happened and we’re only left with small pieces of what is going on outside of their camp, but you can tell that things have gone bad quickly and everyone that has made it out alive so far is stronger because of it.

The story follows Lauren (for the most part) as she is navigating the world without her dad and the world that is unforgiving. She is an incredibly likable main character and not your typical post-apocalyptic hero or heroine. She’s young and should be making mistakes left and right. But, her dad made sure that she was prepared for almost anything and that she was the strongest person she could be emotionally (“turn it into something else”).

This story was much more focused on the family and how they were surviving than the actual apocalypse or even the people who were out to get them. Sure, there were some fast-paced attacks and issues near the middle and end, but the story is a little slower than my average PA book. I’m not complaining. I know that Rudolph is setting up the world and main characters so that I understand what will happen next.

I think that overall, I enjoyed What’s Left of My World as a change of pace post-apocalyptic book. Lauren is easily one of my favorite main characters in a PA book in quite some time, and her story is one that I definitely want to follow. If you liked stories like The Hunger Games or Divergent for the strong female lead, then you should check out What’s Left of My World. Lauren will make you wish you were her (even though her situation really stinks).

I received a free copy of this book. It has not affected my review of my opinion.

Foul-mouthed teen heroine prepped and ready for the apocalypse

This was a good(ish) story with some well developed characters in some intriguing situations. I got this title mainly because of the narrator who has told me some of my favorite stories ever. And he never fails to deliver an outstanding performance.

I was somewhat put off by the language of the main character and the gruesome details of certain villainous men's depravity, but these may not bother some people who expect no less from this genre.

It was an interesting listen. Kevin Pierce delivers again!

Wow! So good!

This was amazing! Loved it! Of course having Kevin Pierce narrate it makes it even better!
Can’t wait to see what these characters do next. Worried about the marauders will do. Who is going to live?
Will the Brady bunch help out?
Will we keep getting more story from ‘before’ and where is Lauren’s dad? So many questions.... on to book 2!

Outstanding book

This is one of the best apocalypse type books I've read in a long time. The action was great and the characters were easy to understand. There were unexpected twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat. Based on the epilogue the second book could be better than the first!!

Very good story

I enjoyed that the central character, Lauren, seems very realistic. The plot was more authentic than many post-apocalyptic novels. The author is definitely teeing up for future releases. The character introduction and development seems really fresh. The bad guys are really bad and the good guys do struggle with "new ethics".

I do like Kevin Pierce's narration. I look forward to more in this series.
