Reads like a survival book and the ending is very strange, like it is rushed and written by a different author to wrap up the book quickly.
This a a great sequel to the first book and a lot of fun. If you are a bit tired of detective stories and the pattern of your reads is becoming a little to predictable then this will be a refreshing change of pace.
Great series, but it seems like the publisher cut it short and the author had to come to a quick ending. Enjoy the authors descriptions and readers story telling. Would have liked a third to finish it instead of how it ended... Reminds me of Steven Kings, The Stand.
As the author of The Zombie Chapters series, I obviously love zombie fiction. That said, this is one of the best zombie series' I've had the pleasure to read. This book is even better than the first book - that's quite a feat! Some audio books I listen to as I have time, and some I MAKE time to listen to. This series falls into the latter category!
The only potential negative was a lack of character development. The format the author writes in makes this very difficult, and honestly, the event-driven writing style engages the listen anyway, so this isn't much of a negative (in my humble opinion!)
If you want a step by step instruction manual for navigating the demise of humanity due to a zombie invasion, then this is a must-listen. Or, if you, like me, want to drift off to sleep while listening, then download this sleeper.
However, ff you actually enjoying character development - "why oh why did this happen? Why am I still here? Where's God? How can I go on?" - intrigue, mystery, language, and masterful storytelling, you'll want to skip this. It's not even a decent zombie thriller. For that - check out Patient Zero.
Not as good as the first book, but still decent. I was hoping for something a little more exciting.
This book was entertaining enough to keep me listening but it had some problems the first book had and I had less room to forgive this time. Without spoiling anything I will say that the book changed it's format from evading the zombie hordes to hanging onto their new home. But all through the story it would drag on with what felt like filler and whenever it would touch on some interesting crisis or area worth exploring it would swiftly shove it aside and resume. After the book was done I had that "I should read the book." feeling after seeing the movie version of something since it missed so many opportunities to explore. It at least had some closure at the end this time.
Never great, but I thought the performance was fantastic and the book will be good entertainment for any zombie lover. Recommended for zombie aficionados...
