St. George, its obivious if you listen to the book.
Good voice acting.
yes and no. I like the story and had to finish once I got started.
This book isn't a milestone of literature, or something that makes you really think hard, in fact I could see bibliophile friends turning their noses up at it. That said it was one of the most entertaining books I have gone through in a long time.
I mean Super Heroes, Zombies, its chocolate and peanut butter gold in terms of fanboy entertainment and this one is done right. Not to mention the edge of your seat action as the story develops you also have all the super hero back-stories that are just as interesting themselves.
Throw in the Los Angeles setting with Celebrity Zombie sightings (and kills) and a good dose of pop culture to boot (to quote hero St. George in the book "Strange things are afoot at the Circle-K" quoting Ted "Theodore" Logan Form 'Bill and Ted's Excellent adventure').
Excellent book, very entertaining, found myself rooting for the Heroes at the end.
BTW, so when is the movie coming out, it has blockbuster written all over it.
This was my first Peter Clines book. Didn't know what to expect, but then WOW, really really liked it! Great characters and very well told story. The voice acting was terrific, definitely added to the experience. Made me a huge fan!
Didn't read the print version.
I enjoyed this book a lot because I bought it based only upon audible recommendations. I didn't read the description and had no idea it was a zombie novel. After figuring out what the book was about I loved the character development, the idea of super heros fighting off zombies in Los Angeles and making a fortress out of a movie studio. My favorite though is their celebrity game where they get points for killing zombie celebrities. Very fun quick read.
I liked that a man did the male voices and a woman do the female voices because sometimes a narrator trying to do the opposite sex sounds goofy. Both narrators did a good job.
This was a fast paced book and really didn't have any fat to cut out. I tried to listen to it in one sitting but couldn't. I would love for the author to expand on the world.
Had I known the book was about super heros dealing with a zombie apocalypse, I never would have bought the book. It just sounds too weird... And it totally works.
Last thought, I think of St. George as Superman. Stealth as Batman. Cerberus as Iron Man.
Zombies, super heroes, zombie super heroes. What's not to like? This book won't change your life or the way you look at the world, but it's a fun listen for someone who enjoys the genre.
This was my 2nd book by Peter Cline (1st was 14) and I loved the way this story is done, lots of different stories within main book but all entwined lovely.
Stealth was my favorite character because she mantains her persona without slacking.
I loved Jay Snyder and would love to listen to anything else but I'm sorry to say Kristine's voice was not very easily to hear.
I'm not one for rereading a book but I do sometimes watch a movie more than once. So if I were to relisten to a story Peter Clines Ex's be a great choice.
Peter Clines did a good job with all his characters
Both performances made me feel like they had a good hold on the characters
great fun for fans of zombies and super heroes both
Zombies and Super Heroes! What a great story line. I loved every minute of all of Peter Clines books.
Ex-Heroes is in the top 15% of the audiobooks I have listened to.
St George emulates the save the world superhero persona very well. It's fun to listen to him play against the "this is the real world" characters as a moral icon.
When I first began listening to this I was concerned having two narrators would be confusing, but the voices brought the characters out more vividly.
Great introduction to a possible series.
I found this writer after stumbling across 14 after running out of Stepen King novels........this story is great.......the characters have depth and are fun.....I also enjoyed the reading team of Jay Snyder and Khristine Hvam......kept my attention and I have listened to both books of this series several times.....even hoping that there might be a third or fourth or fifth book.....
no....but I very much enjoyed their performances
that is a good question.....Can't think of one....
