Not as great as Armada, but still a good read.
I actually burned through it was faster than intended because there were spots where you just kept wanting to listen.
ever think boutique if superheroes smashing zombies and wonder who would win...find out! and Ironman like suit would cause damage.. read it and find out
Two narrators took me a bit to get into, but ended up liking it.
My only issue is with clines in general, he takes an interesting concept/story and heaps as much sci-fi as possible on it. (WARNING PLOT STUFF; not really spoilers) It's a superhero story... with a crazy virus... that makes people into zombies... but a superhero can control the zombies with the crazy virus... and oh yeah there is dark magic... and another realm with creatures that can be brought here by light from an eclipse housed in metal... you get the idea.
Clines is like that in Folds, also.
Solid read, worth your time, just know what you are getting into.
I am a fictional reader. I like strong female characters that's don't require a romance story line.
I am not a fan of the zombie fad of TV shows and movies. this concept seemed interesting but I was hesitant. in glad the book wasn't bloody. the beginning of the book i was worried i couldn't finish it because the opening dialogue was lame. this did seem like the authors first book because there was foul language not to add to the story line but just to have it.
I did like the "then" and "now" storytelling it kept it interesting.
not sure if I would get the next one.
Totally. Friggen. Awesome.
How you discover the zombie apocalypse comes about.
Such a great book. Fantastic story, love the going back and forth between the past and the present. Narrators are great. Adds lots of weight to the story telling.
first off, I'm a big fan of Peter clines. I loved 14 and the fold. I figured I'd give EXheros a chance since I like zombies and super heros. the super hero's in this book I would say are more of a combination of DC comic characters, watchmen, and a vampires...
I really enjoyed and loved the idea behind this book. however, the execution fell just a tad short. at times I felt like I was wondering how does this all flow...? where's the story going...? also, the story seemed to be a little "here and there" at time.
the super hero's... I liked. enough variety to keep things interesting. I personally liked Zap the best.
the zombies aren't anything new... nor are they different from any other zombie story. in fact, these zombies aren't really anything special at all.
by zombies, I mean "Exes"...
there's enough humor to keep me smiling. the story is well enough to keep me wanting to finish it up...
I wish the ending was a little better but this is a series... I'm going to listen to the 2nd book before I make a decision to stop or finish out the series.
overall... if you like zombies and super heros. then this book is good enough to listen to. besides. it's only a 8 hour listen on normal talk speed. which is short in my opinion.
I'm not sure what I was expecting but I just could not get into this. The main character is talking about vomiting up fire, and while I guess some superheros do that I'm not sure it is very entertaining. I just didn't get engrossed in this, which is too bad, I don't mind a good superhero story. It also was odd to have the male narrator narrate and then have the female narrator pitch in. It made the story seem disjointed.
Not my thing I guess.
