A little vulgar but fairly warned. I was on the edge of my seat, enthralled with the story. The author narrating was a special treat. I loved the sound effects and different voices.
The best part about this audiobook is that the author narrates it himself. It is easy to understand his intended tones and inflections and it makes for a compelling- if unrealistic - horror remniscent of a tasty mix of HP Lovecraft, 1950/60s Drive-in, B movie monsters, and modern Da Vinci Code-esque rapid pace, anticipation, and suspense. Overall quite impressed and glad this poppedup on my recommendation list.
The book had an okay story to me. It was slow to start. I did enjoy it more towards the end and am hoping the next book is better. I loved the story his author wrote called "Nocturnal" so I decided to try this.
Prolific reader, who always wished I could find a way to read and drive. Then, I found Audible. Wish granted!
Honestly, it wasn't the story as much as it was the way it was narrated. Sigler did an excellent job. The sound effects, the "we're huuuuuuungry" voices, all were perfect, and lemme tell you... you don't want to fall asleep with this book playing. Waking up hearing those whispery voices will freak you out!!
Any of the infection mutilation scenes were pretty awesome.
I wouldn't. Infected works well.
How people can compare this author to Stephen King or anyone of that caliber is truly amazing. The story just wasn't put together neatly and the narration ruined it. Thank goodness for returns!
I was first concerned when I realized the writer also read the story, since it was not autobiographical. And, unfortunately, my concern was justified, it is horrible. The characters are copied from other stories with nothing that makes you care about them. The writing is stilted and is simply one cliché after another. The characters even speak in clichés with bad accents. I had to stop listening after the first three chapters, I simply could not take it any longer. The plot has some promise, although it seems very similar to other plots, unfortunately I could not put up with the writing to find out if the plot is any good. So far, it appears to be another alien spawn kind of story. To bad I will never find out.
Zombie books, apocalypse books gotta have them!
I loved every part of this audiobook. The story , the characters, the action on and on. Wow Scott does an amazing job telling the story. I could not stop listening. I wish every audiobook was performed this amazingly!
I have always enjoyed Sci Fi books. This is however one book that scared the crap out of me I was so enthralled. At some points I was laughing out loud, this book has it all.
Yes absolutely. The whole book was beyond interesting.
Absolutely Nothing! Best performance ever!
You will not regret getting this audio book. I am definitely getting the next books in this series. Thank you Thank you Scott for an amazing book!

This wasn’t exactly a zombie book like I thought, but it’s really good. I listened to the audio book which was really well put together and a fun listening (but don’t do it while you’re eating). It’s got a lot of gore but the story sticks together really well and the characters interesting. I highly recommend this!
The production value is great!
