    {Review} The Road by Cormac McCarthy

    by Cormac McCarthy Published by Recorded Books on March 2007 Genres: Apocalyptic Format: Audiobook Buy on Amazon Goodreads   This story is about a man and his boy struggling for survival in a world destroyed by some sort of cataclysmic event. I’ve read a few reviews of this book and the movie version (which I have not seen) and knew what I was getting into but I have to admit that I wasn’t quite prepared for the absolute funk this book put me into while listening to it. It is about struggling to survive amongst the bleakest of odds. It’s dark and it’s so very sad. It’s terrible and awful…

    {Review} The Hospital by Keith C. Blackmore

    by Keith C. Blackmore Published by Podium Publishing on March 2014 Genres: Apocalyptic Format: Audiobook Goodreads   This was terrifying, so disturbingly good and is still free on Audible and you don’t even need an Audible account (but you do need an Amazon account).

Or maybe it’s just set in the same world. I don’t really know. What I do know is that you don’t have to read the others before listening to…

    {Review} The Last Mile by Tim Waggoner

    by Tim Waggoner Published by Darkfuse on Oct 21st 2014 Genres: Apocalyptic, Extreme Horror, Horror Pages: 140 pages Format: eARC Buy on Amazon Goodreads   A unique and compelling vision of a post-apocalyptic world, Tim Waggoner’s The Last Mile pits thrall-bound Dan versus sacrifice-to-be Alice. The former does what he has to do to keep his family alive; the latter just wants to survive and will do whatever it takes to stay that way. The Last Mile clearly comes from a rich (and deeply troubled) mind. The hints toward the world that exists beyond the limited view of its two principal characters are more than interesting – with the concept…
