Love to exercise while listening
YES! Cute zombie book. I loved hearing about R's emotions and his transformation.
He did very well with the voices and the slow zombie talk and grunts.
This was a short book that you could easily listen to all at once.
Even if you saw the movie, you'd love this book. Some things are different. nice treat!
Wonderful, unique, brillant
The movie I loved so I had to read the book. The movie really follows the book well. I have to sat the book is so worth reading. You get more in depth in the book. It just comes even more into life. How someone could take a subject like zombies and make them more human is amazing. A must read.
Really great. Had to watch the movie and wasn't too disappointed. What a great way to present zombie love with out the "dawn of the dead" gore.
I bought this book after watching the movie, and was not disappointing. It was engrossing and fun to listen to, and contained many more details than the movie. the ending was much more realistic as well!
One of the more entertaining audible books I've listened to, made me wish my 30 minute commute was longer.
I don't have a comparison that fits at this time. I was thoroughly entertained though. The pace was perfect.
Mr. Kenerly's carfeul distinction and characterization for multiple character voices created a rich, living, breathing canvas of personalities. His women's voices were seamless to the story line.
Romeo and Juliet in the post walking dead Zombie Apocolyptic aftermath with a surprisingly human and satisfactory ending. The old bard would be proud.
Wonderfully written story of humanity distilled to what makes us human at the end of the day when sitting at the end of the world.
I really enjoyed this book, especially the audio book. I bought the hard back, and I'm watching the movie tonight. I thought it was really refreshing and fun to listen too. I wish that R had a more active role towards the end.. But I can see why I. Marion chose to portray him the way he did. I especially loved how the author drops fun little social commentary into the "typical" zombie beginning. Why, how, and when the zombie "plague" began. Fun stuff, and I liked the ending too
I loved the idea of this story. I did not love the story itself. I felt the author let too many things go unanswered, and did not develop the characters as well as he could have. The story was good though, just not as good as I had hoped. The Romeo and Juliet feel was fun though, and I loved how he uses music as language. There were a lot of good parts to this book, it just left me wanting and feeling flat overall. Worth a read, but only if you have some time on your hands and want a different take on the zombies theme.
I did not care for the ending. I think the movie ending was a little better honestly, although I liked the book much more than the movie.
The perspective of a zombie yearning to feel/love in stark contrast (ironic) to humans learning to disregard life/living is absolutely wonderful, cynical, satirical, and - overall - hopeful.
The only thing I may compare this book to is the Harry Potter series only from the addictive nature is instills in the reader as well as from the free/easy flow of readability.
I love all the references to The Beatles, especially, "I don't know why you say Goodbye; I say Hello". That song never made sense to me before.
Nothing 'extreme' other than enjoyment.
This book is better than the movie, except in the age of the main character.
This was one of the best books I have listened to in a long time, I really loved the story line.
However I had already watched the movie so what I expected from the book really wasn't there after reading the book the movie was such a huge disappointment. So many good parts skipped and unimportant ones added.
I loved how detailed it was, everything left such a crisp picture in my mind, and for me this is very hard to accomplish.
Hilarious, Bizarre and Zombies!
When they explain how the dead make love.
Funny book with a twisted love story.
