  • "I have never been so tense"

    Story

    I have never been as tense while listening to a zombie apocalypse audiobook as I was while listening to Die Trying: A Zombie Apocalypse. The first part of this story that hooked me immediately taking place during a violent thunder storm in the pitch black of night, where our military guys were trying to track down a mysterious sound in the air, I really thought that was all the story was going to be for awhile and I would have been totally alright with that. Under constant fear the zombies would hear or find them and ruin their day. Nicholas Ryan bring forth a new type of zombie to my ears, the kind that will eat each other, one was wounded and suddenly the horde stops advancing, moaning turning to growling, and then they converged upon the wounded and tore it to shreds in an all out ravenous feeding frenzy. If that wasn't enough for you Ryan was able to create characters that really spoke to me with their complex histories and a certain mystery surrounding a few of them. My only criticism is that this audiobook was way too short, so many other avenues could have been explored. I highly recommend Die Trying: A Zombie Apocalypse, but only if you are looking for a quick listen that is really fast paced, full of action, tons of suspense and different than your usual zombies. As I said earlier I have already purchased Ground Zero: A Zombie Apocalypse an earlier release because Ryan was able to rouse something in me that few other authors have.

    Story

    At first glance the cover looks pretty tame. What could go on with robots, err, I mean androids? Then I looked closer and noticed the subtle bite wounds around the flesh of arm. What could this mean? Robot zombies? That could be entertaining.

    Xom-B takes place in the future, a time were people have developed androids to do their bidding. People could get "upgraded" to look prettier, be smarter, see better, etc. All the while their android slave grind away at the thing that make the society what it is. I almost wish that more was told about the grind and how life came to be like this. More was revealed latter, but I can get impatient. All of a sudden people start dieing, everywhere, even in the middle of conversations.

    Now I don't want to delve into the plot and characters too much as most of it would spoil your listening experience. I will say this. Robots and zombies mixed in with a truly satisfying science fiction dystopian society make for a great audiobook. I was fully encapsulated within the story and would fight going to sleep to hear just a bit more.

    Even though it is slow starting it becomes full of interesting and complex characters that would evolve from seeming weaklings to self confident heroes. Anti-heroes that start off seeming not so bad transform into almost super villains. And enough plot twists and turns that kept me guessing, except for the ones I figured out.

    Are you looking for a zombie story that doesn't have the main focus on the zombies? Maybe you want a great science fiction tale that doesn't focus solely on the technologies of the time. You could just be looking for another great dystopian adventure. Guess what, you get all of that with Xom-B. Yes much of it is so familiar that you would swear to reading it elsewhere, but I assure you that you haven't heard it put together like this. I have couple other Robinson audiobooks in my queue and will continue to look for them in the future.

    Freeman is a genius with an uncommon mixture of memory, intelligence, and creativity. He lives in a worldwide utopia, but it was not always so. There was a time known as the Grind - when Freeman's people lived as slaves to another race referred to simply as "Master". They were property. But a civil rights movement emerged. Change seemed near, but the Masters refused to bend. Instead, they declared war. And lost. Now, the freed world is threatened by a virus, spread through bites, sweeping through the population. Those infected change - they are propelled to violence, driven to disperse the virus.

    White Trash Zombie Apocalypse starts out slow, with a large review of what had already happened in the first two audiobooks, which is okay for those who have not listened to the other books yet, but for me could have contained more substance. Then we find Angel mixed up again with people she would rather not be mixed up with. The is a zombie movie being shot in her town, this makes it difficult to tell the "real" zombie from the movie ones. All that being said I did enjoy being back in Angel's head and loving the fact that she is a zombie fitting in with society and trying to continue living life as if she wasn't different at all.

    Our favorite white trash zombie, Angel Crawford, has enough problems of her own, what with dealing with her alcoholic, deadbeat dad, issues with her not-quite boyfriend, the zombie mafia, industrial espionage, and evil corporations. Oh, and it’s raining, and won’t let up. But things get even crazier when a zombie movie starts filming in town, and Angel begins to suspect that it’s not just the plot of the movie that's rotten. Soon she's fighting her way through mud, blood, bullets, and intrigue, even as zombies, both real and fake, prowl the streets.

    I saw the movie then listened to this audiobook. Apart from the flashbacks this is the dialogue from the movie verbatim. It wasn't that good. I was disappointed both in the movie and the audiobook. Good idea, poor story.

  • "The Novel Stephen King Was Born To ..."

    218 of 229 helpful votes

    Let me start with a quick public service announcement; if you have not read Stephen King's "IT", you may want to hold off on this book until you read that story. The first third of this book does deal with the town of Derry, and the history of evil within the town. Readers who have not yet read "IT" will still enjoy this book, and knowing the back story to Derry is not a prerequisite for following or enjoying this book; that said, readers that HAVE read "IT", (and, to a lesser extent, any of King's other books dealing with Derry), will have an enhanced enjoyment of these sections, along with the parallels drawn between Derry and other locations later in the story.

    As others have previously shared, this is not a horror novel. While the overall "big picture" of the plot hinges on a man's "Great Adventure", the vast majority of the telling is focused in on the individual trees, rather than the forest (if you will). Most of the text is a day to day recounting of a man's life, and the pacing is slow. Not bad slow - but slow, nonetheless. The book is broken into 4 files for download, and the slow pacing is especially true of the 2nd, 3rd, and the first half of the 4th file. The beginning is faster paced, as is the conclusion of the story. It's a subtle story of a man's intentions, and as a story of that, it is genuinely beautiful.

    There was a distinct danger of this book turning into a version of "Groundhog Day", and King dodges the possible pitfall artfully.

    The Narration, as performed by Craig Wasson, is a revelation. As shared in a previous review, he IS the character of Jake, sharing his story with you; with all the happiness, sorrow, humor, and doubt that comes with life. He did a spectacular job. There were a handful of places where it appeared another narrator had "pinch hit" on a phrase or sentence; I'm not sure what that was about, but they did a good job getting a very similar voice and it didn't happen often.

    To my recollection, I've never teared up while listening to an audiobook before; but this book brought me to tears 5 times; sometimes out of heart-wrenching tragedy, sometimes out of awe of the beauty and kindness of people.

    All in all, this is a book about kindness, and good intentions. From the first page to the stunning conclusion, it gave me a reminder of how truly good people can be, and for that, I want to thank Mr. King.

    I hope you enjoy it nearly as much as I did.

    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

    Seventy thousand years ago, the human race almost went extinct. We survived, but no one knows how.

    Until now. The countdown to the next stage of human evolution is about to begin, and humanity might not survive this time. The Immari are good at keeping secrets. For 2,000 years, they've hidden the truth about human evolution. They've also searched for an ancient enemy - a threat that could wipe out the human race. Now the search is over.

    For the first few years, Rick Galloway and his band of mercenaries were doing well just to survive. They'd been swept off a hilltop in Africa by a flying saucer and deposited on an alien world where the other inhabitants were human - but from various and unfriendly periods of history, all collected by flying saucer raids. Rick has faced facts: This place is going to be home, permanently. To create a safe society for themselves and the families they are gradually building, they need to do more than just survive.

    The story: It is a typical Spring in California. A space ship from an advanced distant civilization in a neighbor galaxy that claims to have visited and created life on Earth millions of years before crashes unexpectedly on the Pacific Ocean near the US West Coast. Their peaceful intention is to repeat their early contribution to life on Earth by planting new life matter in our waters, hoping for a better outcome this time: a world free from disease, both physically and mentally, perhaps even conflict.
