What first started out as what I could only assume would be a zombie apocalypse novel, quickly changed into something more...likely that could happen. While i went in expecting zombies, I was presently surprised! I enjoyed the book, and liked how it was a very personal first person point of view story. I'd recommend to anyone who wants an interested thriller with a twist. I look forward to book 2!
Love this story. The narrater is great and the story is beyond. Imagine if someone you love and trust suddenly turned on you? Or if suddenly you felt threatened by someone you loved and felt you must kill them or they'd kill you?
Great idea for an even better story. Thanks David Moody.
I don't give spoilers
Hater, Dog blood and Them or us
I found it a entertaining series, generally I dislike British accents but this narrator didn't bug me.
The story goes maybe a third or more of the population succumb to some change that makes them incredibly violent and kill anyone who hasn't changed.
Really enjoy listening to these books sure am glad I was introduced to Audible. Best dollar I've ever spent.
This has got to be the poorest written book and poorest performed book that I've ever gotten from Audible. I can not understand how it even got printed to begin with.
The story line is weak at best the narrator does such a poor job of reading it that I truly did waste my money.
This is the first book out of all the ones I've gotten that I am saying this, usually I give the benefit of the doubt but not on this one.
Best thing, don't buy it, shoot I wouldn't even take it as a free download.
Well the book leaves a lot for your mind to play with. I like the audio book more just because it saves me time that i dont always have when it comes to sitting down and reading.
Obviously it was the main character. I wont say why because i will be giving away to much.
At first it threw me off, but i had no info on the book and had no idea it took place in Great Britain. Once i realized that it was fine. He did a very very good job.
It would also be the main character. I would have a lot of ?'s for him.
Yes but only a friend with a tast for lengthy backstory and non-traditional narrative
Mr. Doyle's performance is simple, direct, and solid. He portrayal of the protagonist is pitch perfect. He renders a vivid portrayal of each character in the same fashion. Male, female, child, adult, working class British or politician, each character is spacific and fully realized.
This is not a book with Heros. There is no ex cop who holds a ragtag band of survivors together. No military man with quiet strength and combat expertise. No beautiful woman fighting Her way through a post Apocalyptic landscape. In fact the protagonist is not somone you like very much. You do however understand him. You empathize with him. That is the authors great accomplishment. The central crisis of this story unfolds in a believable fashion. The horrifying events of this story happen to ordinary people. this is a story about what happens to a society when we view our neighbors as
Read this if you ever want to know what Milton Waddams (the guy with the stapler in "Office Space") would do if put into a life or death, end of the world situation. Nothing, lock himself in a house and pray noone look him in the eye, and wait for the mob to kill him and his family. I haven't finished the book, don't know if I will.
Yes, the story did take a while to get moving, but that remains true with the first story of any "Trilogy". You have to develop your characters properly and David Moody did an excellent job.
The right combination of the decline of society, tension, suspense, not to mention blood and gore made this book an awesome "read".
I love apocalyptic novels and this is definately in that category. Can't wait to hear "Dog Blood".
I enjoy good apocalyptic/plague books but have been pulled in by bad novels one too many times. I was pleasantly surprised with Hater. It delivers on all levels and the true to life pessimistic attitude the narrator brings just makes the listen that much better. Great job by David Moody!!
Painfully slow for such a short book. But it eventually gets interesting, if a bit predictable. Gerard Doyle does a great job reading.
