Peter Clines is a good author. This book was short and sweet. Not great but not bad either. The whole chapter where the character who was actually a demon was rambling was soooo unnecessary and felt like the author was trying way too hard. Almost stopped listening after that chapter it was so bad.

I really enjoyed the book. It was recommended by a friend. I liked the pop culture, tv, and film references. I loved the top 5 celebrity kill comparisons between characters (Grace Park from BSG and George Tekai dead made me sad but was happy to hear them mentioned). I was impressed as well with the small continuity bits like the police officer Hall and the dominatrix ninja references. I look forward to the next. Fun book.
not a terrible book overall. but lacks depth and character development. interesting premise, but doesn't follow through with anything more than action.
Books are my escape, Good ones keep me awake! Tolkien, Clines, Sandford, R.R.Martin, Rowling...long live your worlds!
Great post apocalyptic, walking dead, superheroes and supervillains type of story. Not like 14 but different and engrossing its own right. Get ready to get lost in another world!
This was the first book I've read that used alterations of events in both the past and the present in such a connecting way, it was a new and very interesting way to learn about events, and made for great characters and storytelling.
Fight scenes were tedious, and the whole then now was slightly confusing as an audible. The words to describe action and fight scenes were limited and reused repeatedly, also actions were telling the reader what happened rather than showing. The plot was unfocused, half way through the book and the characters are still figuring out what the problem is. The big bad guy was contrived, and had a flimsy motivation for trying to kill all the hero's. All the characters seem like they can't be killed! They all are different versions of superman and it gets kind of boring when everyone is too good. The performance was awesome, each voice fit smoothly from dialog to narration. Personally, won't buy from this author again. Sorry author.
I listened to the entire series within two weeks! If you like comic books and zombies this is an essential book.
The idea of Super Heroes actually facing zombies.
Will Wheaton, as he did an amazing narration job on the book "Ready Player One"
You need your breaks at least every hour or so.
Jay and Khristine both gave sub-par performances, as they didn't really emote all that well in the beginning chapters, only in the last three or four did they begin to sound like they were trying.
