Some other folks gave book two better ratings, so I'll probably try that one. I'll try it solely on recommendations, though, and not because I thoroughly enjoyed this book. At the Halloween sale price of $6.95, it's fair entertainment.
Bad reading. Very monotone. Quickly fades to background noise unless you're really paying attention.
Just little things - You can tell the author has no survival or firearms training. Authors like Jonathan Maberry and J. L. Bourne have either done extensive research or lived it, respectively. Every time someone "flipped the safety off on their Glock", I was truly wishing they were pointing it at me instead of a zombie.
did not work
dont know, did not work
do not know, the file never worked
could not get the book to play.
I finished this book and I thought it was good, however it was a hard read for me. I didn't like how the story jumped around and I had a hard time loving the characters. I did like them however. I thought the idea of the story was well thought out.
I am a Chef and have two boys. I also have 2 accounts.
IT WAS A FUNNY BOOK, BUT I DID NOT LIKE THE NARRATOR. I THINK I WOULD HAVE LIKED IT IF THAT WAS DIFFERENT. COULD NOT FINISH LISTENING TO IT.
the book is full on from start to finish takes a lot for me to really get interested in a book but didn't want this one to end and a little note to Craig Dilouie there better be a part 2 in the making lol
Borrows heavily from Left 4 Dead and 28 Days Later. Doesn't offer a lot of originality but it has some cool bits. I found myself unable to get too attached to the characters. If you got a free credit you could do a lot worse... though I would recommend Max Brooks' World War Z over this one.
Hello, I am an avid, when I have time, reader and have been with Audible since 2002. I have a vision problem which makes it hard to read books, so the audible format is a God Send!
I love Zombie stories, and this one is a different take. I would suggest listening to the
reader as I found his delivery a bit choppy. I enjoyed the monsters but there wasn't really any back story to explain some of the monsters.
The author needs to research firearms. The writer states that the officer thumbed the safety off her Glock... Glocks Handguns have no external lock to thumb off..... Also, Cordite hasnt been used in guns since WWII... Next time have a gun expert proof your script.
I'm very forgiving of zombie stories as they are rarely the highest form of literature. But I'd rather listen to a well-performed audio reading than a printed version of this genre any day.
The story builds slowly, relying heavily on character back-story, and delivers a critical war-type conflict at the end. It becomes somewhat convoluted with a few made-for-television and predictable resolutions. I was okay with the ending. I've read better zombie books but not many and there are some awful ones out there. This one is actually pretty good. I'm not crazy about this review format because it really restricts your comments within this limited Q&A.
Would you lay odds on a rag-tag team of damaged heroes against lots and lots of monsters? The best are on!
This is a good, solid zombie story of infected humans with the suggestion of some extra-terrestrial mutation or invasion and it succeeds on many levels. There's good character development, plenty of back-story and a fair amount of gunfire and gore. Good post-apocalyptic disarray and tales of marginal survival in a broken society. This is a rag-tag team of people that manage to be lost in a sea of rampaging zombies but instead of a boat, their vessel is an Abrams tank. You learn to like this group and you'll enjoy the time you spend with them. But if you're a die-hard zombie fan, you'll prefer a little more interaction with them and you'll puzzle over the monsters. But if you like monsters, there are plenty of them and they are scary-enough. So, here's something new: zombies and giant scary monsters. If you need to nit-pick over how guns work or technicalities, then maybe there's a zombie book out there written by soldiers. This one is nicely done.
