The dumb premise of the book gets in the way. Pace and action are ok. But, Zombies. I can suspend disbelief better for traditional monsters.
I'm not really a fan of zombie books but wow this was a great non-stop action thriller. I picked it up based on other readers reviews and was not sorry. I will definitely be picking up the next book in the series.
This story is really hard to find a stopping place so beware you may have a sleepless night ahead when you start it!
Just this fox who plays export analyst by day and horror writer by night.
I'm sorry I waited so long to listen. This was thrilling and fascinating and a wonderful spin on a worn out trope.
I would listen to Patient Zero again. It was really interesting to see how a sci-fi style story is turned into a probably non-sci-fi story, by using bio warfare. This is a plausible story, and it was interesting.
My favorite thing about this story was the way in which the narrator was able to capture and craft the various personas within the book. It was very well done.
I don't really like Joe Ledger's personality very much. He could be much nicer, however, Ray Porter did an excellent job portraying this character. I don't like the character, but he was my favorite portrayal from the story.
I didn't want to listen to the whole story in one sitting, like I have for other books, like Monster Hunter International. The reason for this, is because it would sometimes get rather dull and bogged down with varying details that didn't seem too necessary to delve into... like psycho -evaluations of people. However, this was still a very good book, and didn't get too boring more than a handful of times. It was usually well packed with excitement and moving forward.
Didn't read the print version, but I now intend to read the whole series. This was one of my favorite books this year.
Absolutely. There are parallel stories, and Maberry knows exactly when to jump from one to the other to keep you hanging.
Joe is obviously terrific, but he also does a fine job with Toys.
When Grace visits Joe and shares her backstory was very well written and read.
I read a lot of thrillers (Flynn, Thor, Child, Silva, MacDonald), and I am always on the look out for authors who have a strong protagonist and a string of books to read. I am really happy that I found Maberry. He and Joe Ledger are now on my short list.
