The dialogue between characters is very smart and realistic, given that they're super heroes. There's nothing corny about this novel at all, which was my greatest fear when I purchased it. However, to enjoy this book, you must suspend all belief in well-grounded universal physics, even for a fictitious world. There isn't an author-designed ecosystem that explains these supernatural occurrences; the book is simply too brief for that. The focus is on the character interactions and action, so it's a quick, easy, entertaining listen.
Zombies v. Super Herpes - what more could you want?
This was a good, fun listen. I liked the back story, and although at first the multiple narrators through me, I was able to get used to it quickly. It would make a great film, I don't know if some less-imaginative types might struggle with the action scenes.
A nice change from the disappointing rubbish I've been downloading!
I absolutely love Khristine Hvam. The last few books I have listened to have been by her, coincidentally. Usually I avoid doing that because you don't want to think of two books with the same sounding characters... Distracting. But not with her. I am amazed by that. And I've enjoyed her readings so much I consider books read by her higher because she always narrates good books. Jay was great also. That sounds so trite after my praise for Hvam. But I really did like him a lot. W
Eh, I don't know about a particular moment. I just really enjoyed the book and definitely recommend it. Worth the credit.
Im a huge scifi urban fantasy fan, don't usually care one way or another for zombies. But this was done well, not just apocalyptic crap. Overall good book.
It rates among my top 20 but I've listened to a lot of audiobooks by the greats.
I liked how the author combined the two genres without the story feeling forced. It felt like both a comic book and a horror movie. The literary device of breaking the story into current and past time lines works well and helps to develop the heroes. Like any good comic book you need an origin story and this audiobook does a great job of including the heroes origins alongside a compelling story.
No but I really enjoyed having two voice actors for the reading. It worked to set the female characters apart from the male characters and make each one their own.
For these superheroes the end of the world was just the beginning of their story.
If you like comic books and enjoy a good zombie apocalypse yarn then you will really enjoy this audiobook.
Like the header says ..... the author must have been sitting around with friends discussing a zombacolyse world when someone must have piped up " well... if i'm going to be in a zombie apocolypse I want to have super powers" and the storey line must of taken off from there...
This book is everything that Marvel Zombies should have been. I was really impressed with how the story draws you in, and manages the character origins while not losing thread of the current events. Well done.
It will be one of the books I listen to again and again. I loved the characters, the plot, and the narrators.
Day by Day Armageddon, Flesh Eaters, and Dead City although I didn't liked the way that one ended. It didn't seem to go very well with the idea of a zombie apocolypse.
Both. They are both excellent narrators. The book wouldn't be as good if either of them were absent. Jay Snyder is one of my favorite narrators as evidenced by the many books I have with his voice on them. Khristine Hvam did an excellent job as Stealth and the other female parts too, but I especially liked her interpretation of Stealth's characters voice.
Well it didn't make me laugh or cry but it was very hard not to listen all the way to the end without stopping. It also left me wanting another book in the series.
It will be looking for other audio books by Khristine Hvam.
They were great it really kept me into it, they made it more real
I like a male doing the male voices and a female voices.
It is different type of story to me.
Just to start I'd like to say that I download the majority of zombie novels and I am always on the look for a new one.
I thought over all the book was excellent and the story reminded me a little of Marvel zombies however they are not the same kind. I don't want to say to much on that but if you are looking for a Marvel zombie carbon copy story line you may be a little disappointed.
The narration was well done and the fact that they also had a female reading for some of the characters did not lessen the experience for me. The production was top notch as well.
Sometimes its hard to warm up to new super heroes after all the years of Marvel and DC but the ones in this story I really liked and hopefully they will make at least another book to follow this one up.
How the zombies outbreak happens is original and adds alot to the story. The book is kinda told in a Pulp Fiction movie style, going from past to present. I had to listen to the story 2 times before I got a better understanding of what was going on, as far as the names of characters, what happened to them and how it applied to the current situation. I usually listen to the books while I'm working in my shop so sometimes I miss some of the critical plot points.
Overall this is a good listen and worth the credit in my book. If I didn't like it I wouldn't bother writing much of a review.
