I grew up with books....not television.
This is your typical zombie story told from a military perspective. It did take me a few chapters to thoroughly get into the story - but then I started to bond with the characters. There isn't a whole lot of interaction with the zombies on a close combat scenario - mostly military tactics and warfare. It was good enough though to check out the 2nd installment. So I will!

this series presents a fuller story, from the first cases of the infected and the initial responses to the spread across the globe. the story initially focuses on two groups of survivors- a group of soldiers and a group consisting other survivors. i won't reveal much about them so as to not spoil anything. i've enjoyed the different accounts of survival from the different groups.
1st half of the book is kind of slow as the plot builds and the author develops the characters. there is a good cast of characters. they are believable. the author does a good job of rotating the characters and the action going on around them.
i've read a few different zombie books, and this story has its own, unique zombie slant. imagine a combination of 28 days later and return of the living dead.
i've enjoyed the series. after i finished the 1st book, i was invested enough in the story and characters to want to pick up the second book. i'm on the 3rd book, and they've been a good investment in time. The second book is better than the first and so far book 3 is as good as the second.
i must say there is one thing that annoyed me- how stupid the world's militaries are in the beginning. i can't believe that such a strategic area wasn't better defended. that is the weakest plot point. ah-well, it reminded me of the battle of yonkers from world war z.
if you've already read/listened to day by day armmageddon, the infection, we're alive, world war z, and zombie fallout and you're looking for another zombie series, then this one's pretty good.
I love zombie books and this is my favorite so far . Good story and likable characters makes you laugh and keeps you engaged cant wait for next one
Finished my 4th listening. Such a great story. Every time new details and deeper understanding of whats going on. Plus reader was just great.
The fight at the docks as the survivors are trying to find boats to escape.
Very tense, very quick listen. I listened to the whole thing in a weekend.
Start from first book. Great zombie book.
The immune guy, cause u could save the world, and get to kill heaps of zombies with out risk of infection.
i am a 27 year old male. i got into audible because i love to listen to them at work. I like zombies, survival, and fantasy, game of thrones
Please don't end.
the autopsy of the zombies. classic zombie fun.
my favorite scene would have to be the big battle scene with the zombies.
every story is unique and amazing. i think i would chose eather agent mason or the general. . . . . im not sure.
keep um comin
Plague Of The Dead is a combo zombie military strategy book with a good story to keep it moving. Having done some time in the army, I enjoyed this books view of the end of the world through the eyes of the soldiers fighting the zombies. I also liked that the zombies could run and displayed at least some sense of intelligence, not just shambling around mindless.
Good first book of the trilogy. I enjoyed it.
This is a well writhen and well delivered book. The characters are likeable and to plot flows smoothly. The only drawback is that book 3 was not completed. The books are good enough to lesson to on there own but I would have loved to hear the completion of the story line.
