(I was provided with a free download to this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.)

An intriguing introduction to what looks to be an interesting series, "The American Fathers: Swept Away" is smart, attention-grabbing, and well written. In a near future where powerful dynasties and families have all but taken the place of the government, college professor Sheila is convinced that America needs to turn away from this modern feudalism, or be destroyed. Is the attractive Jasira her enemy, or a

I am not sure what the author’s intent with this “book” or story or prequel is. I did not think it was long enough to form any kind of opinion about whether to read more or not. The story involves Sheila McKinley a college professor who has just experienced a relationship break up, who sees a pundit on TV and immediately grows to like her. Shelia’s friend invites her to dinner, and has also invited this pundit as a surprise guest. The two of them end up touring the town, as Shelia shows the pund ...more

Narrated by a cast of five actors, The American Fathers Episode 1 is a short audiobook, 58 minutes. Sound effects are sprinkled throughout the prose. This combination, i.e., the length, cast, and sound effects, brought to mind radio mysteries. Well produced.

Both dialogue and narration are excellent. Snappy and authentic. The cast of actors does a terrific job in transitions with voices/characters. You’ll find a seamless reading and will have absolutely no trouble discerning who-says-what-to-who.

I don’t believe you really care who I am. As an independent author, I’ve read hundreds of bios, and I know they’re as boring to read as they are difficult to write. You, I suspect, are just looking for a good book, and want to know whether I’m a guy that can give you what you want. If you like dragons, you want to know whether I will give you dragons. If you like reading dirty, kinky, sex - smut, ...more
