Publisher's Summary

No mazes. No zombies. No games.
America Falls

Think North Korea and Russia are the greatest danger to the United States? Think again. After a surprise biological attack, America, the most powerful nation on Earth, quickly succumbs, with 99.91% of the population over the age of 16 decimated. As society unravels, and the ground invasion of his country begins, loner Isaac Race must form a connection with a ragtag group of survivors and elude not only the invaders, but other dangers and threats unleashed in chaotic Post-America.

Hell Week is the first installment of America Falls, a post-apocalyptic survival series, a compelling, action-packed story about who we are and who we have to become in order to survive.

This book/series was originally published as After Days and has been re-written and re-branded to embrace the author's original intentions of creating a compelling episode-driven adventure. For lovers of books by Jack Hunt, Bobby Akart, AR Shaw, Chris Pike, Ryan Westfield, Harley Tate, and Mike Sheridan.

Just misses the mark for great

I think the book overall was really good even though it was a little hard to get into at the beginning. It got better as the book went on and I will definitely pick up the next one in the series.

Good, but half a book

Generally speaking, I thought the book was good. Though, some of the dialogue was a bit clunky. Not sure if that is because of how it was written, or because of the narrator.

An Engaging First Step

I received this work in exchange for an honest review. Note that this book contains some language and some mature themes.

Scott Medbury crafts a unique and engaging world that's begging to be explored. The characters are interesting, and the narrative is believable. This is a worthwhile examination of what could be.

Isaac is a compelling protagonist. The book opens with his tragic back story. He's young, and his actions throughout the book emphasize his naivety. The characters he meets along the way are interesting in their own ways. They never get annoying, and they have depth. The story is compelling. It depicts a what-if scenario that has roots in the real world. It's extreme in many ways, but it's never unimaginable.

Adam Barr is a great narrator. His voice carries emotional weight, and he's a great choice for a dark, post-apocalyptic thriller. I felt like he lived through these scenarios, like he was suffering alongside these characters.

I enjoyed this story. It was short, but it was engaging. I'm eager to read the next book in Medbury's series, and I'm excited to delve more into Barr's narrative catalog.

Good but could be better and longer.

I received a review copy of this book and was not sure what to expect. Decent story overall but not outstanding, perhaps because I felt it finished rather abruptly. Narration is excellent.

The is a distinct lack of character building and the story seems a bit rushed, but perhaps it fits the YA audience better.

Too short

Get the Box set!!!!!!

Do not buy this book, get the box set instead, you will thank me later. I wish I had started with the box set (Books 1-3) first, as the Narration and Story are wonderful and you get to the end and just want to keep going. Have fun and Enjoy.

At the time of this review, Audible did not have chapter titles for this book.

The book was provided for free, however, these are my honest thoughts and review.

Really Credible Post-Apocalyptic Novel

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I am copying my review of the first three books collection I've listen to at once, highly recommended.
I was truly taken with this series of post-apocalyptic survival. I found the plot very credible and I'm grateful that the author didn't resort to zombies or farfetched situations to narrate his story. I cannot say that there are no monsters though, because there are, but are of the human kind... Maybe the main adolescent character, acted a little too mature for his age, but then who knows how anyone would react when faced with the extreme situations he has to face in order to be able to survive and lead his friends to salvation? Speaking of which.... not what I was expecting, but I'll leave it at that since I don't want to spoil the outcome. I have listened to the first three books in the series at once and was sorry to reach the end. Looking forward to the sequel aa I would love to be able to follow this bunch of brave kids as they build a brand new world. Excellent narration and pleasantly written. A definite good listening experience even if a little violent at times.

Pleasant, flows well, good narrator...

I've dabbled in this genre before, and found much disappointment. This one was a pleasure. Not perfect, but a nice light listen while working around the yard. Found myself sad this one ended, but will buy the next in the series. Recommended.

(BTW: This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review. That never changes my review content, but I have to mention that to be fair and legal.)

A different approach to the end of the world

This book was extremely interesting. It started out as a story of an orphan and ended with a flu that kills most adults. The book gives the back story of the hero and starts a roller coaster ride until it stops on top of a hill for the next book.
