The end of the world is not glamorous.

In a matter of days the human race was reduced to nothing more than vicious, flesh hungry creatures.

Criminal defense attorney, Samson, struggles to keep his family safe and his sanity intact when the world comes apart at the seams. Veronica, the high school track star, races to get her brother out of their doomed city. Ben, a military veteran, is forced to come to grips with the end of the world as he fights the undead. Andrew, a police officer, struggles to maintain some sort of humanity in a world overrun by death and destruction.

There are no heroes here, just survivors, and they all have one thing in common: who you once were can no longer determine who you will be in the face of catastrophe.

The Breadwinner, book 1 in The Breadwinner Trilogy, thrusts you head first into post-apocalyptic Northwest Florida and will leave you craving more.

GREAT story, wonderful characters.  Makes you realize how things change when the world you used to know is no longer there.  Not your average "zombie" book.  A marvelous read, not very long or drawn out.  A+!

I purchased this from smashwords and wanted to review where a wider audience can see.  I very, very seldom read fiction, but this book did an outstanding job of keeping me captivated to read more. It stays very well paced between action and character development giving insight into how people who once thought they knew who they were and their place in the world once it ends.

Reviewed by James Phillips for Readers' Favorite The Breadwinner (The Breadwinner Trilogy Book 1) is a zombie apocalyptic horror story by Stevie Kopas. The end of the world is bad and Kopas is there to show us just how ugly it gets when humans become flesh-starved, crazy, vicious monsters. The story hops between different characters’ lives. Ben is a military veteran who knows a thing or two about fighting, but he’s never had an enemy as unpredictable as the flesh-eating zombies. Samson is a criminal defense attorney who is just trying to keep his family safe as the world breaks into pieces all around him. Andrew is a police officer who is trying to discover if there is any humanity left in the world that has not literally been eaten by the undead. Veronica is a high school track star and her mission is to get her brother clear of the deadly city. They aren’t necessarily trying to be heroes. They just want to survive. The Breadwinner is a cool zombie story and will definitely appeal to readers who love horror and a good 'end-of-the-world-by-zombies' story. I liked how Kopas decided to have a number of different characters and tell each of their stories. I thought that was a smart idea. It gives the reader a lot of different options of characters to root for and chapters to enjoy. His vision of what the end of the world would look like was creepy and startling, because it seemed very realistic. His description was so good that I fear that it could be true.

This is the debut audiobook from a new author Stevie Kopas. I am sure that this will be a welcomed addition to a very crowded genre. As the story is primarily told from the females perspective, not only that but one that is not a survival expert or prepper. Best part of this particular zombie apocalypse is the fast zombies or eaters as they are often referred to here. I remember the first time I encountered them in 28 Day Later, since then they have always held a very special place in my heart. There were zombie attack scenes that made me squirm a bit. Kopas was able to inject each of them with just the right amount of terror and gore. The characters grew and evolved right before your eyes. I just couldn’t find a connection to any of them. While to storyline was solid, I found it difficult to pay attention due to the narration and for this book, maybe the print version would have been much better. There were times that I got confused about whether the story was happening now or then, due to the amount of flashbacks and flash forwards. This was my first time listening to a performance by Scott Birney. Unfortunately, I will have to think long and hard before choosing another by him. I found his voice pleasant overall, deep and resonating, he speaks clearly and concisely. Firstly I think he was the wrong choice to narrate a book that is primarily from the female perspective. His strong and deep voice just didn’t fit. Then his pacing was perfectly steady, I find it much more of a pleasant listen when there is a fluctuation of the speed of the reading. Then he sounded almost completely emotionless throughout. The “from the author” at the very end of the book was one of the only points to where Birney added some sort of emotional fluctuation.

It was a little bit pedantic. almost written like a 7th grader. Just saying and being honest.
