As an entreprenuer, it is hard for me to shut off my brain! It is also hard for me to sit still! I love audibles! I can exercise, work on "chores" , travel and be entertained! Always looking for a good story!
At first, I wasn't sure I would like this novel, but as the book progressed, I found myself becoming more and more involved in the story. I would read more from this author. This story is graphic and brutal. But an interesting hypothesis.
Say something about yourself!
The action and intensity of Mr. Joe Ledger, the way this man can kick butt and take names is so cool.
There are a couple of memorable moments, one would be how they figured out who would be team leader, two would be that attack on the crab factory and three the last fight was really cool...
I think I like Mr. Porter's performance of Rudy was my favorite, In a way he does sound a little like Raul Julia.
Well no i didn't cry, but i did laugh a couple of times and i was rooting for echo team loudly in my work van.
To me this was a great book and I recommend this book and even the series to anyone who likes action books. Shoot i listen to this book 3 times.
It keeps you interested at all times. I really liked the sense of humor of the main character. Not a die hard fan of zombies but this story was about so much more than zombies.
This book was simply AWESOME! Being a Combat Vet myself, I found that I could resonate with Joe and his team. Get the mission done, no matter what. Towards the end the story began shifting from one scene to the next, it was harrowing.
Joe was definitely my favorite character, however Bunny was a close second. His comments of "it gets worse sir" had me laughing out loud, thinking back to my own military days and standing in a line-up talking to the D.I.
I've never listened to Ray Porter before this. I thought Scott Brick was good, but Ray take the inflection to a whole new level. It seems like Ray really knows these characters and puts this entire thought process into the performance. I'm really impressed by Ray's command of the story line, his ability to portray a character's emotions and thought process. Very impressive job by Ray Porter.
No extreme reaction, but I really liked the story line. I felt like I was right there with Joe and Echo Team or rather I wanted to be there kicking some Zombie buts...
An awesome story line read by an awesome story reader. This is a must have book!
Strongly written combat. What u might expect if Zombies were real. And the story grows with increasing danger yet does not become foolish.
I laughed because author has a sharply sarcastic sense of humor.
Only drawback is that the main character over does his PTSD. U end up with an admirably tough whiner .
It was entertaining and kept me involved
I simply like sci fi stories and the medical side was pretty interesting
Yes, story line was intriguing.
Yes, you never new who the traitor was until the very end.
The characters were all memorable for different aspects of their characterization and back stories.
You are drawn in by the humor speckled with terror of a realistic plot to infect the world with Zombies (infected). The characters are interesting. My favorite character was Rudy the doc. The main character's self talk is hilarious.
The humor and quick action. I appreciate that they explained the fast moving plot. It was a great and speedy flow of story. Church is like a Hoover only a good guy :)
He did the main character so well I laughed out loud, excellent smart @#$. Church was superbly a question mark. Rudy was my favorite.
I smiled often when I was not tense from the action. I laughed so much. Great action too!
I rarely write reviews, but this book is absolutely incredible. I listened to it in 2 days, the did it again to really get what was going on.
I found myself stopping it and trying to imagine what Joe and his men had to do and the incredible amount of bodies left in their wake.
I found myself doing this with the Stand, trying to imagine Freeways, tunnels, ect totally blocked by cars and dead people.
The only complaint I have is during the epilogue. I wish he had mentioned something about all the missing people. There must have been thousands of families looking for them.
Other then that, no complaints at all. No drag points.
The narrator is perfect.
I read all the reviews before I buy a book, and I have bought many that people rave about, only to be disappointed.
Get it. You will not be disappointed.
Now, I am off to the 2nd book.
I have had an Audible.com account for several years and I have listened to, at least 50 books and I have never reviewed a book. With that being said I am not reviewing this book either, really. Yes the book was good, very good actually however Ray Porter could quote the Webster's Dictionary and it would be good. He is by far the best at his craft. When it comes to book narrators this guy is by far the best I have ever heard. Like I said the book is good but if you are just thinking about listning to it, do it you will not be disappointed.
