Only listened to the first couple of hours. It is not terrible, but there is nothing new here.
I found myself drifting away into thoughts of almost anything but the story playing in my ears...so no, it really wasn't time well spent.
The group survival dynamic was fairly well presented..there was just so much repetition that it was really hard to stay interested.
He read what should have been a thriller in such a monotone professorial manner that I felt more lectured than entertained...and someone please tell him revulsion just needs to be said, not 'pronounced'' each time as re-vul-zyun.
Possibly a movie, with lots of editing. Don't have a clue who should star in it..since I don't care for Tom Cruise so he could play the part of a character who turns to a 'screamer' in the first part of the book.
Every cliche about the sting of the smell of cordite, revulsion at the zombies, on and on seemed to be used to pad the story...sometimes editing and telling a story in a straightforward way is really the best way.
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.
