I love audio books! I love listening to stories and feeling myself float away to be apart of the adventure.
It would be "are you serious?" I love a good zombie game, movie or story; but, I can't tell if this guy is serious.
This is not applicable, but I was imagining one while listening. I don't know if that counts.
I haven't, this book is just stating information, so I don't know if I was able to experience his full potential. He was a very good reader.
"Zombie-Proofing for Dummies"
I had meant to pick this one up for a while now, but when I eventually got the audio version, I couldn't even finish it. Its dry and slow. I have to say that the print version is much better given that is is full of pictures and diagrams to explain whats going on. Audio versions is missing half the fun of the read. Really best delivered in a visual format.
Sure would, it was not so much the narrators performance that got me turned off to the audio version of this book.
SVA -- 2010*
+ Very intriguing for the first half or so. Lots of good "advice" and info on the inevitable zombie threat.
- Joke kinda gets old half way or so through...
I didn't know that zombies walked normally under water as if it were not much of a problem...
Scientific. Nerdy. Textbook.
Fun for the first half, gets stale.
This is an INSTRUCTION manual. It's a weird listen. I just can't give a manual, especially a fictitious one, a good review.
If you are a zombie genre lover, you may like this. But again, it's a MANUAL.
Get the book, not the audiobook.
Every day I'm listenin every day I'm listenin
All of the voice actors are amazing!
The part where the movie stars are being guarded was pretty funny, and when the people had to eat each other in the north.... ALL of the moments are memorable!
I have a few times!
I have listened to this book so many time that I can mouth the words as they are saying them, but the thing that gets me is that this book gets better every time!
This is a must have survival guide. It's main premise is based on the zombie apocalypse, but can be adapted to almost any situation.
It increases your awareness to the overall world around you. You cannot just live for that day, but must think ahead. When others think of an apocalypse, they think of the day after, not the months or years after.
It is not the narrator's fault about his performance, just it is hard to narrate a survival guide.
I loved his matter of fact tone
Huge fan of zombies and this book is easily one of my favorites. I have listened to this book several times. It never gets old. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys zombie literature ;)
Was expecting a humorous guide to zombie apocalypses, but what I got was a mixture of conspiracy book (zombies are all around us) and a thing done with a mouth between a guys legs to the American military. He also contradicts himself repeatedly with things like zombies will pile over fences but not over a broken staircase. Also gives terrible advise, no one should actually prepare like it says in this book because if you have that much weaponry in your apartment that you rent because this book tells you apartments are better then houses, nothing good will come of it. Also only applicable to Americans living in big cities.
Looking for complex, believable characters, an engaging storyline, and good narration! Fan of sci-fi, fantasy, adventure, and horror.
This book does read like a non-fiction survival guide with lists of information that sometimes droned on for me. It tended to be a little dry. I enjoyed it, but zoned out for portions of the book. Parts that I found the most interesting involved descriptions of the safest buildings to hole up in during a zombie siege. I do find myself looking at buildings and comparing their safety value now. I also liked the descriptions of "real" zombie attacks throughout history. I am glad I listened and I know that every time I watch a zombie movie now, I will be thinking things like, "That chainsaw is not a very practical weapon, considering its weight...."
Audiobooks makes my 10+hour commutes every week alot more bearable. :)
The detail put into pretty much everything, survivaltech, gear, backstory, etc.
World war z, another book by max brooks
Some contradictions in the book, ex, a zombie cant climb a ladder but an anchorchain.. And in one chapter animals have no problem eating dead zombies as in all the other chapters they avoid necrotic flesh.. But, small things in the whole!
This book is an excellent listen.
The reader is great, but I wish it would hav been read by max brooks instead, he was good in WWZ
