Harry Turtledove fan
Audible should use this as a benchmark for future renditions of good books.
The story is good, and taut.
The enactment is Great !
Especially Gen Sherman, Pfc. Brewster, and the Canadian Denton.
On par with the Percy Jackson series.
I read the reviews before i bought this book and i wasnt expecting much from this book other then to listen to something other then music, But i found that the bad reviews i read were not right at all..Yes there was some silly bits but i mean without the funny bits whats the point of just listening to a book that doesnt make you laugh at times?? the book was well written and well read :) all of the characters added there own spice through out the book :) 5 STARS!!!
Love scary stories and thrillers.
I listened to this only on the recommendations of other audible members. It turned out pretty good. It took me a little while to get into it, however once you do it's definitely worth it. If you like this one then you'd really enjoy Patient Zero.
Way too cliche and simple. Gets 3 stars by default because it's zombies. If you get rid of the f-bombs, this book would be a great intro book for any youngster getting into the genre. The military mentality was on par with any of the non-Romero Living Dead movies.
A bit predictable - mediocre dialog. The military and government types were little more than characatures.
this is a great novel. the voice actor is simply supurb and this book has done what few can. it has taken a difficult to write concept of zombies and made it come alive. my renewal date is in 1 day but i cannot wait to get the 2nd novel and im going to actually buy it instead of wait for the credit. HIGHLY reccommended to anyone who loves zombie novels.
If you can get past his ignorance of the military the book is great. Story line is one of my favorites. After reading the first book, i had to get the second. I hope the third one will be released.
God rest Z's sole.
Zombies Books in order: 1. We're Alive 2. Day By Day Armageddon 3. Roads Less Traveled Series 4. Alaskan Undead Apocalypse 5. World War Z 6. The Walking Dead 7. Rise Again 8. As the World Dies 9. Zombie Fallout
If you're hard up for zombie stories, sure, but try others first. Some list this zombie story along with the likes of Day by Day Armageddon or Dead City (Excellent books). But its not even close.
The story and setting are good enough, that's what drew me in. But the author can't handle the intricacies of his story to make it believable leaving large plot holes
I loved that they had a firing line set up along the Suez...but wtf, where was the rest of the military? Recht could go great places, what with his main character a *general* who promptly goes AWOL and hops off the very safe and powerful destroyer to go wandering from coast to coast with rag tag refugees with little food and ammo, when he really had the whole US military at his disposal! Oh, and that stupid macho fist fight...ugh.
Too many stupid and nonsensical decisions being made throughout the book.
Recht made some good set ups but fumbled all his chances to make them any good. Hear he's dead now. Oh well, RIP, don't get back up!
