I would recommend this one to a friend who finds the science interesting.
Yes. I don't usually get into the zombie books, bit this one is more a thriller which happens to have zombies.
I have not listened to Ray Porter performances before, but love his style. I have already downloaded the second book in the series in large part due to his performance.
Yes, it took me about 4 but only because I had to go to work at some point!
Buy this audiobook you will not be disappointed. Action packed, well written, believable story line with an outstanding narration/story teller.
Echo Team as a whole were just great
Fantastic job, made each character come alive in my ears
Yes, I work all night and was actually sorry to have to break it into a few nights to get it done. Resisting the urge to listen to it at home was tough
Already bought the second book and put the rest in my wishlist

Believable characters, dialogue and story are needed before I could enjoy this book.
I'm always hoping for another book in the Jack Reacher, Harry Bosch or John Corey Series.
The Narrator did a fine job enabling the listener to distinguish one character from another.
Some might enjoy the book being made into a comic book movie.
This author is now one that I am going to avoid.
It's not the typical "Horror" story in which the main characters just try their best to get out of the zombies' way and stay alive, etc...the usual cliche..this one has lots of action and lots of suspense and a pretty good story line. I was really surprised!
I don't have a bunker and I would starve in 2 1/2 days, but I like to listen to people who do and wouldn't.
I am a "How to survive an apocalyptic situation (Day by Day Armageddon, Swan Song etc...) fan. This story offers a 'this is how we stop an end of days event.' This said, the story, narration and charactors offers an OUTSTANDING read/listen, but in a 'we won, everything is ok,' no need to survive kind of way.
Yes, I plan on finishing the series, but I need to find the next The End/The Long Road story to satisfy me first.

Classic tale of an antihero and his dark past, a long legged dame and zombies! I really enjoyed this book, it was well read and the story was fun and enjoyable.
for 5 years has driven 180 miles round trip daily. That is a ton of listening time!
World War Z
Outstanding performance, one of the best I have heard.
A fantastic ride through action, sci-fi, love, horror and terror. Joe Ledger is as cool as Bruce Willis and harder than Vin Diesel. I can not wait to get started on book number 2.
The story was good but Ray Porter made it great. He has several characters and his inflexions are on the mark,
NO, but only because of the language issue. It was pervasive and I couldn't continue slogging through it.
yes... I have his rot and ruin for teens and this problem isn't really there. little bit but not too bad.
no... he is a great narrator in my opinion. enjoyed the performance aspect just fine.
I like the story elements, but only the language issue was bad for me. Just can't enjoy it with all of the unnecessary language going on. really was gratuitous in my opinion.
Audible has opened up a whole new world of reading that I could not make work in the traditional page turning world. I am on a mission to listen to a wide variety of adventures, mysteries, thrillers, classics, etc. Thank you Audible!
I found this to be a fun and entertaining read. Joe Ledger is a man with super human abilities and a moral code that leaves him with no choice other than to do what is right. However doing what is right seems to come with a whole lot of collateral damage! This book is full of action and has a Men in Black feel to it, but instead of aliens we get to dance with zombies. If you’re a fan of this type of story you will enjoy the ride, plus you get a bonus of zombies mixed in to give it that extra kick. If you are looking for a pure zombie tale you may want to explore other options, but if you need/want a zombie fix with some unique twists you have found one.
Be aware that book #1 is the only one in the Joe Ledger series with zombies in the forefront. Jonathan Maberry creatively introduces a different threat to human kind in each book with our only hope is Joe Ledger with the support of the super-secret Department of Military Sciences.
Each book in this series can be read as a standalone, but you will get more out of them if you follow the series in order. Ray Porter, who thankfully is the narrator for the entire series, does an excellent job.
Stay alert, move fast, have fun and don't get bit!!
