The narrator is not my favorite, but her reading is clear and easy to understand. If you have listened to the other books, you know what to expect.
I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook. This is my honest and voluntary review.
This is the last book in the trilogy and probably the best. It has so much action and suspense you just can not stop reading or if you are lucky enough to get the audio narrated by Ann Bumbak you can't stop listening. Ms Bumbak is wonderful she draws you into the story and makes you feel as though you are there fighting along side everyone sometimes as a rebel sometimes as a mutant, but you will have to stay and see what happens all the way to the end. This was a great series and one you should give a try if you like post dystopian books but not as rough as others.
I loved Isabella and Malcolm's unwavering love and Luke's youthful exuberance and I enjoyed the look at the extremes of what life after the apocalypse could be like.
Under the Mountain is dark and heavy in some places but it's overall message is affirmative and in the end we are reassured that for Isabella and her family, and for the United States itself, the post-apocalyptic universe is unfolding pretty much as it should.

I was also nervous that, given the very title of the book “Under the Mountain”, the story would be confined (or mostly confined) to the underground shelter at Mount Weather. Wouldn't this be something of an anti climax given that the story had so far been about Luke and Isabella's adventures in the post apocalyptic Outside?
I needn't have worried, Lynda, if anything has managed to up her game for the conclusion.
Indeed, much of the story did take place within the confines of Mount Weather. But the effect that this has is rather than restricting the story, the society created within the government shelter acts like a pressure cooker where all the contradictions of the post apocalyptic world are brought to the boil. The ten levels resemble a hierachy with the government and military command occupying the top levels and the Mutant/New Humans incarcerated in the lowest level pending being sent out to clean up the most irradiated areas. Effectively a death sentence with echoes of the holocaust implicit. Being kept on the lowest level, of course, keeps the Mutants/New Humans out of the sight of the main populace.
The most beautiful aspect of the book is that it manages, in spite of the horrors, to keep faith in humanity. That even those seemingly conditioned by military dicipline are capable of questioning their actions when something is not right with the world. People can and do change for the better, however changing is a process that is harder and longer for some people than it is for others. One of the messages is that its usually young people who are the best equiped to deal with these situations when they happen.
Because I gave the previous two books in this trilogy five stars each I am unable to give the extra star needed to demonstrate that the final installment is probably the best of the three. But honestly, if you don't read all three books, you really are missing out on something both exciting and original.
