Good character development. Great weave of thriller, 24-esque pacing, and a healthy taste of zombie.
Really!? This is the first book. How does it get any better? This book is fantastic and the narrator is so talented! The imagery painted with words is astounding. To do a movie based on this book would be impossible to watch because it would be so gruesome! Can't wait to listen to more!
This book asking with the others in this series are some of the best books I've ever had the pleasure of reading our listening to. Also, Ray Porter does an excellent reading. He is a genius at giving it realism and doing character voices. I have already listened twice.
I loved every minute of this story. The action was well paced and beautifully described and choreographed. The characters, especially the main one, were interesting and engaging. Simply excellent, and in an over played genre such as zombies this was a breath of fresh air and ingenuity.
Ray Porter's narration made this book enjoyable. Ray Porter is the best. Ray Porter could narrate the phone book and make it fun and exciting.
I would have given Joe Ledger some flaws to make him a more relatable character. As is, he's just a generic super-talented guy.
Not sure, the zombie scenes were all pretty good.
The story is very suspenseful and I had trouble turning it off.
I will continue listening to the rest of the series.
Not sure, I haven't read the print version.
It was fast pace and the protagonist was pretty intriguing.
Joe Ledger was the best. Although, the way he read Joe's Therapist was very Raul Julia.
I wouldn't say extreme but it was very exciting.
The author does a good job of piecing together a new and pretty innovative lens to the zombie genre. This is not your typical post-apocalyptic story of survival, but a struggle to stop the outbreak before it starts. The author deserves kudos for his research and imagination behind the story. Although he's obviously not going to be winning the Pulitzer for literature any time soon (the writing was full of cliches and sometimes bordered on sophomoric), the story was compelling and fun. The narrator really made the book, though. Great dialects and accents, plus he was able to bring each character to life in a very believable way. I will definitely be listening to him again!
I enjoyed this book but the hero was hard for me to get behind. His animalistic way of verbally lashing his technical comrades was off putting. He seemed like a collection of heroic ideals rather than a real person. His only weakness being his anger, which really only heightened focus adding to his super powers. That aside, I did get pulled into the story and still enjoyed the book and narrator. I'd recommend if you're into zombies.
