I love the continuing story in book 2 of this series. I also enjoy how seriously the story plays out along with the great attention to detail that goes into this book...I wont give it away, however Im not a huge fan of what the author introduces as a reason, and describes how the world began to fall apart. Dont get me wrong, its definitely worth continuing this story and I love how its unfolding, hance why I gave it 5 stars...but once again Im just not a fan of the origin of this apocalypse as chosen by the author...I really hate the idea of mixing the two ideas together, and it kind of feels cliche now too like an old 80's horror film...I think it takes enough work for any author to make the dark and foreboding zombie universe theyre creating to sound plausible and "realistic", along with end of the world being believable through a zombie uprising (which I enjoy getting into); but then this author adds an additional layer of 'rediculousness' that you have to further overcome to learn what caused the outbreak of zombies in the first place. I think you'll know what I mean one you finish book 2. Overall, the situation causing the destruction of mankind chosen here doesnt remotely detract from the story (yet) and I hope it doesnt interrupt the plot of book 3 too much. Still loving this book and series. Must buy if you're a zombie fan and want to listen to some quality work.
This story line continues to be One Of the best Post Apocalyptic books ever. I just finished "The Remaining" series, And can't help but notice how much better that series Is read. Intonation and a real connection with the story escapes this Narration almost until the very end when you can audibly tell he actually had read, enjoyed and connected With the book compared to the first 3/4 of the story. It really detracts from narration and connection you build with it.
I got lost abut in all the weapon and military jargon. Much more than the first book. I still listened through to the end. At times I just mentally phased out unlike in the first book.
I listen to a variety of audio books constantly in car and gym. My reviews remind me what I’ve read & are hopefully helpful to you as well.
3.5 stars. not as good as many others. Just didn't like it. i decided about a quarter way through not to continue with this series but i will say thus book ended in a compelling way. i think the next book's story has potential, but i probably won't get it unless i get suckered in by a sale. in short, i don't recommend this one.
Exciting, thrilling and breath stopping.
The story was really well written, and it was so hard to put down the headphones. I love the way you get sucked into the book and the storyline. I had a hard time getting to understand all the three letter words, but it made the plot more real, after I looked them up. Simply put: I loved book 1.
This was the first one. He had a voice that fit the character great.
I have enjoyed listening to this book while driving across the country. The twist and turns along the story along with the technical dynamics has made this story fun to experience .
