    • My original Tourists of the Apocalypse audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.What if you had the chance to change events that normally would be beyond your control?  Would you go back to the past and buy a raft along with your ticket to sail on the Titanic?  Or you could change the past by going to the future?  A mind-boggling set of questions that C.F. Waller explores.Dylan Townsend is a young teen living on a lonely cul-de-sac with his mom and her worthless bru [...]

    • I have to write this one carefully, as the ending might cloud what I wanted to say before I got to it. The ending is sweet (although being far from perfect with at least one major question about the future Dylan - the main charachter - scheme, not to mention it contradicts what Dylan thought just a few pages before).The book can be divided into several parts, only some of which were interesting. The third part, The roadtrip through the apocalypsed south was to most interesting, but was sadly cut [...]

    • Warning, big plot spoilers. It just didn't do it for me. I thought the story idea was great, people come back from a dark future to watch the apocalypse in alternate time lines. I was enjoying the book until 3/4 of the way through when everything just got weird. A bunch of the main characters get killed, and oh by the way one of them was pregnant with the main character's baby, which mysteriously wasn't evident to anyone else until that moment? Then a Mad Max style chase ensues, and when the mai [...]

    • Review of the AUDIOBOOK. I want to rate this book higher. It has lots of great reviews. There is so much potential here, but This book has a great title and a great premise and a pretty good ending. However, it is somewhat poorly executed. The dialogue and relationships between characters are not believable, and I really did not care for the narrator. His voice/manner of speaking somehow made the dialogue seem more unnatural/stiff than it already was. He also called a character named "Fitz" the [...]

    • **I have received this title for free from Audiobook Jukebox and ACX for an unbiased review.**Title: Tourists of the ApocalypseAuthor: C.F. WallerNarrator: J. Scott BennettLength: 12 hrs and 28 minsPublisher/Date Published: C.F.Waller/ 1-13-2017Have you ever experienced a power outage? For most of us the answer would be yes at some point in our lives, but how long did that outage last, a few hours? A few days if it was because of natural disaster, and how far did that outage affect? But what if [...]

    • I really liked this audio at first it is a little confusing but the author ties it all in at the end. What a great story about dooms day. The author goes into how the world changes, how long it takes people to turn against each other when they find they have lost everything. The author take today’s world and shifts it back to the 1800 before electricity, before cars. You have a cell phone, a car, heat, air, you have all the things we have today but with one flip of a switch you lose it all. Wh [...]

    • ( Format : Audiobook)""Don't ask questions you don't want the answers.""The author takes time to precede the opening chapters of his book to give his audience background information about E.M.P.s, and how just three strategically exploded nuclear devices could put out all of the lights in the U.S.A. He even commends to the reader a Government report about the dangers which was published on the same day as the one which investigated the happenings of 9/11 (and so was overlooked by the press).And [...]

    • Review originally published at: lomeraniel/audiobookreI have received a copy of this book in audio format from the narrator in exchange for an honest review.The book starts in a future society, a legless woman sabotaging the company that she is working for, and then waiting for somebody to arrive. Back in the present, we witness how a strange crew arrives to the cul-de-sac where Dylan and his mother live, helping them in ways which nobody will expect from a stranger. Some years later an EMP leav [...]

    • A well written, enjoyable and engaging story. Bit of a different take on an apocalyptic story. The story pulls you in from the beginning. The way the story unfolded was not how I though it would, but it was definitely creative, interesting and very entertaining. It's definilty worth your time and credit. A mixture of time-travel, apocalyptic, dystopian, romance, mystery, suspense and intrigue all woven into a really good story. Things start out in one direction then completely change and by the [...]

    • Lots to like about this book, although with the exception of an exciting opening slows to a crawl for the next 1/3 of the book. There were, in fact, many sections that could probably use a good editor. But overall, I liked the story. The whole time-travel / apocalypse / "rebuilding from the ashes" angle is definitely my ideal combination of genres, and for the most part, they were all handled well here. I wouldn't have minded a little more explicitness about the ages of the various characters, e [...]

    • An intriguing premise in this book by an accomplished author, Tourists of the Apocalypse holds interest from the first page. I can’t write too much about the plot without giving away spoilers, but the tale unfolds in a way that is riveting. I could see this book being made into a popular sci-fi film. We see the action through the eyes of Dylan, who is thirteen at the time the story begins. He is fascinated by new neighbours who arrive in his street and take over three houses, living quietly bu [...]

    • What can I say. I am a sucker for time travel apocalyptic stories. I loved this one. The image of planes raining over the ocean was just overwhelming. The plot is fast paced and really entertaining and I liked the characters a lot.At one point in the story -the road fights- I couldn't help myself thinking this was the early days of a Mad Max style apocalypse. I do found that the main character was too self righteous at moments.Fast read, with cool plot. I haven't thought yet of the paradox impli [...]

    • This is my 2nd C.F. Waller audiobook (Free Dive & Tourist of the Apocalypse) I’m looking forward to the 3rd (South Face). Don’t get hung-up on preconceived ideas about time travel or mainstream zombie apocalypse, the story line is refreshingly original. I listen to audio books during my long work commute, there are so many twists, turns, and surprises I found myself (on more than one occasion) sitting in the car for an extra few minutes, I couldn’t put the book down! Narration for Tour [...]

    • I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.This had a really good premise; the break down of the power grid leading to a post apocalyptic situation surrounded by time travel, and it's narrated by an amazing narrator.However, I just found myself confused. The opening scenes I realized were rewarded if you have the patience with the novel, but the characters were bland, the plot didn't live up to the expectation I had and it didn't hold my atte [...]

    • Brilliant. What a fun read with so many different layers. Time travel books can be tiresome to be honest and I usually try to avoid getting bogged down with techno-babble and drawn out descriptions of scientific theories. This is not one of those boring tales. Think of the film ‘The butterfly Effect’ with a ‘bad guy’ plus the added bonus of an Apocalypse, car chases and more. I loved every bit of this story!

    • I had a really hard time getting into this story. I almost moved on to another book many times. However, I decided to keep reading and see if it improved any. It did pick up and the end of the book was probably my favorite part. The problem was that the book was super slow for the majority of the book. Plus the majority of the book is before the apocalypse so I kept wondering when it was going to happen. It was an ok story with a plot that could have been great.

    • I really enjoyed this! It goes right along with my two favorite genres, time travel & the apocalypse.It was very original, fun, fast & entertaining! Great narrator too, he did an amazing job.I did feel like I missed something at the very end & wonder where the money was coming from. I highly recommend this books it would be great for adults & older teens too.I was voluntarily provided this review copy at no charge by the author, publisher and or narrator.

    • A very good storyI very much enjoyed this book. It was interesting, and had so many twists and turns. I couldn't even try to predict where it was really going. Good characters, locations, and action. Good writing.

    • “I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”Mr. Waller has a good style and the tale was interesting. Time travel and dystopian stories can often be confusing, but his story leads from arc to arc without losing the reader or causing jumps (except for the hook at the beginning).

    • Well worth reading!I always enjoy time travel stories and this one won't let you down. The characters are believable. Waller doesn't leave you with a fairytale ending but I liked it regardless. This tale would make a great movie.

    • Interesting, but strangeIt took time to get going before it developed. Strange beginning, interesting middle, odd ending. Plus weird syntax, bad editing.

    • Time Travel mixed with Apocalypse I REALLY enjoyed this book! I've read a lot of apocalypse stories lately, but this is one of the better ones.

    • 2 stars as I enjoyed the first and last 30 pages or so. it's a real shame that the pages inbetween were so dull. Dull characters that were generally unlikable. The end of the world never looked so boring.

    • The opening of the book details a confusing scene of a female office worker in the future apparently sabotaging the business computer and beginning a countdown to some unknown result. We come full circle much later on. After that we reset to somewhere around the year 2007-2008. Enter our protagonist Dylan, a thirteen year old boy who lives with his mother. Into the neighborhood come the strangers who buy the three houses next to Dylan. They are quite secretive about their business and leave for [...]

    • Caution: May be spoilersI was sent this audiobook free for an honest reviewI have to admit this story confused me at first. The prologue didn't seem to connect with the story at all, but patience is rewarded. There is a slow start to the book and I was starting to wonder when the apocalypse was happening. Once it did, then things got really interesting.I have to say I found the main character, Dylan, to be a bit annoying dense and self-absorbed. You would think being in the Army would have taug [...]

    • J. Scott Bennett narrates this book nicely.In the distant future the ideal place to visit is the past.The day of the apocalypse is this chosen day.Great imagery.Relatable characters.I was provided this book free by the author, narrator or publisher.

    • This was one wild ride that's for sure, it draws the reader in right from the very beginning. A serious yet fun read that was very complex at times. You just love to hate some of the characters and really want to root for our main guy. I thought the premise of the book was fantastic and that's what drew me in. I think I actually might enjoy doing that job in another lifetime LOL. The author includes lots of little elements that make this book just a little bit more unique. I thought the relation [...]

    • Dylan Townsend is an ordinary kid, dealing with a violent home life, until a mysterious group of people move into the new homes at the end of his street. About a dozen years of his life unfolds around the end of modern civilization. This was a great coming of age while getting a grip on a new reality story. Waller chose one of my personal favorite apocalypse scenarios. The end of the power grid. Lights out. The preface confirms that this scenario is actually possible, which makes it outright fri [...]
