What a great choice for a first book. I tried to limit my listening to just on my commute to/from work but I became so engrossed in the story that I finished it up in just a few days (so I upgraded my account just to get the sequel!).
If you are a fan of the AMC series "The Walking Dead", then you will definitely appreciate this book. The style of writing progresses at a fast enough pace to keep your interest and the diary entries really help you visualize what the author is describing. Jay does a great job narrating and pulls you into the story. Even if you aren't a huge zombie fan, get this book and you will be hooked on the genre!!
Jay Snyder did a fantastic job!
I have listened to it 3 times not in less then a month as well as the second book.
I am a former military man and loved this book whole heatedly. People who are looking for a Rambo charter move on, this is what i would consider a more "real life" (or as real as i could be) account of dealing with Zombies. I also loved World War Z, but this book was better hands down, and for those who do not like the ending, i thought it was a great way to lead into the second book.
I really enjoyed the book itself, it was well written and exciting
The diary author is the obvious choice, however the Zombies are fantastic as well.
The narrator was my only issue with this book. He over enuciates everything, all the swears lose their intensity, his impressions of women and girls are god awful, there was no semblance of emotion in his drab, annoying and boring voice. I really wish I had purchased the paperback instead.
Lets get down to brasstax here, I keep harping on the same cottonpicken' thing. Great book, terrible narrator.
I loved the style in which this book was written. Jay Snyder did it so much justice that i have put all the books he narrated in my wish list. I love zombie books and this one is near the very top.
I drive a lot!
WOW, did i find one. as soon as it finished... i tried downloading the 2nd book while in traffic... had to pull over so i could have download it.
very well done.. and the reader was great.
finding harder and harder to find a good zombie story.
Doomsday preppers... people who think that they alone will survive a cataclysmic event
no indeed go zombie apocalypse!
Written by a guy for guys...
Just a fun loving family guy! Obviously I am a zombie genre fan as well as post apocolyptic genre.
It was a different take on another zombie story. Don't get me wrong, I love zombie stories. It is nice to have a different take though.
I liked the fact that the story was basically a bunch of journal entries. It was a bit odd at first, and perhaps a bit disjointed until I got used to it. I quickly grew to love it though.
This is going to sound weird being that this is a zombie book, but I found his voice to be very "homey" and comforting.
I didn't have any extreme reactions. There were parts that had me chuckling for sure though.
One of the better books I have listened to so far. Highly recommended.
The story follows the lead character from a very personal yet detached perspective that made him and the plot more interesting.
There is a steady rise and fall throughout the book allowing for personal insight squeezed between constant action.
