"Disappointing and overrated"
I bought this book based on its high rating - big mistake.
This book was very predictable, and full of scenes which feel like they were lifted right out of a bad hollywood action movie - a man throwing down his gun to have a fist fight with his enemy (the last time I saw that was in Team America!).
I did not find the story exciting, scary, or even that interesting. This wasn't helped by the narration which was unintentionally amusing more often than not - which kind of defeated any attempt to build tension.
There are better zombie, and horror stories out there.
"Brilliant zombie horror."
Love this audio book. The narration is superb, the writing is superb, I highly recommend anyone who likes a horror novel should download this. The story isn't completely original but it can't be because of the genre. It's the first book in a trilogy and second book is even better. Unfortunately the author died before the third book was released, which is devastating because this guy is super talented. (although there is talk of the third book will get released). R.I.P Z.A. Recht.
"Excellent - highly recommend"
A brilliant follow up to the fist part! This literally is a page turner, I find myself counting down the hours till I can listen again! If you like Zombies this book is for you! Alternatively if you like survival stories this is for you.
"This one is a spinter"
I downloaded this book on a whim. I had never heard of the author, nor the title but decided to give it a whirl. I must say I am impressed. The story is not too far fetched and have several notes of truth about it. I like the characters and the pace at which they were introduced, although the first 30 minutes were a bit slow. I am delighted to have listened on as I would have missed a treat.
The narration is clear, well paced and consistent. No speed changes or obvious pauses in the reading. The characters are easy to spot and some of the 'voices' really give a flavour of the character in question.
I recommend this book and since I have just finished the sequel, suggest you get that one as well. (Thunder & Ashes)
I've never read anything as annoyingly awful a this trash. The 1 dimensional characters are so agonizingly cliched and utterly hateful I was just praying for them to be eaten but unfortunately they weren't - roll on sequel - uurrrrggh!
Do Not Waste A Credit!
