I would! Let me be up front, I wouldn't know an "excellent" book from a "just okay" book if you forced me to. But I do know that I had a really good time listening to this. The main character is funny, and he is easy to relate to.
All of the characters were pretty good
That is a tough question, the easy answer is Joe but since he is the main character it is easy to say that. I have to say I liked his performance as Church.
It was. It moved at a good pace and didn't drag very much, it had the timing of an action movie.
If you are looking for a fun book, check this out. If you are looking for a soul-searching enlightening experience ... well this might not be the book you are going to want to read for that.
This is a lightweight and fun beach read, even though that term is usually reserved for chick lit.........Super cop Joe Ledger faces a bioterrorism weapon that can turn people into zombies, able to rise from the dead with just enough brain function to search out, kill, and eat other people, turning them into zombies too. He's brought into a super-secret military organization to destroy the undead threat, and I presume he continues with that group all through the series of novels. He's strong, fit, smart, fast, and deadly.....essentially, he's Jack Bauer in the first season of 24, over-the-top but good fun as a hero. Add in terrorism, conspiracy theories, traitors, technology, and zombies......well, who wouldn't have a great time?
Good narration makes it that much more fun.
Once I got into the rhythm of the narrator and past a bit of the cheese, I found myself engrossed! Hate to admit it but at first I didn't care for the narrators "voice" of the main character ( I kept picturing Brian of the Family Guy as a cop), but once I realized that I really liked the narration for other characters and the storyline got more complex I was hooked! I plan to continue the series.
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!
