Jack Hunt’s ‘All That Remains’ is one of the best books I’ve read in any genre. If you’re like me and love a story with lots of action, suspense, thrills and drama, with emotional impact thrown in the mix, you couldn’t choose a better book than this one. I was a recipient of a free review copy of this audiobook, which I requested, and am now leaving a voluntary opinion.
Mr Hunt doesn’t bog down the story with an overload of pre-EMP exposition. We get enough from a few scenes to get a sense of the characterizations before the event. The action gets going right away and doesn’t stop. The story is told from multiple points of view, which enhance the dramatic narrative of the initial few days following the EMP. We follow these characters as they either sink to their baser instincts or rise above with courage and bravery. This book is written as the first chapter of a series. You definitely will want to continue to the next book right away.
Of course, I cannot neglect the narration of the book. This is my first experience listening to Miles Meili and it will not be my last. His interpretation of Jack Hunt’s excellently written words is outstanding. The voices are distinct and full of feeling. I felt almost like I was viewing a movie. The combo of Hunt’s writing and Meili’s narration had me vividly picturing the action. I am already planning to listen to more books from both artists.
Very highly recommended.
