I wouldn't listen to it all the way through, but I did enjoy some of the descriptions of the zombies and when R would speak. But I already know the story and didn't find enough pleasure in it to revisit the whole thing.
It is a unique take on the zombie experience.
I love Kevin Kenerly - I first ran into him with The Talented Mr. Ripley. He makes everything sound great. I loved his interpretation of R, the way he spoke "zombie", in that gravelly, low grunting, was fantastic. His M was great too. He does zombie very well.
Perhaps it's because I heard this book (instead of visually reading it), I found myself lost several times. There were times I didn't know if it was Perry or R narrating.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
The concept of the story being from a zombie point of view was new and original. I bought this on sale and thought it would be interesting and then I watched the movie, which was funny. So I figured that if I like the movie the book has got to be better. The characters seem to be older in the book than the movie, not teenagers. It had some odd parts in the book that weren't that appealing to me. The book has its moments but I think I enjoyed the movie better, R just has more charm in the movie. I know not to judge a book by the movie, but I didn't have a huge desire to finish this book quickly and in fact listened to a few books in between. I am not a huge zombie fan so I may be a little bias with this genre. Overall not a bad book I would rate it more 3.5.
Loved everything about this audiobook! And as title states, SO Much better than the movie!
Since I saw the movie first, it took me a little while to get used to the voice of R, but once I got over that I was completely sucked in. This is a great sort of love story!
I spend a large amount of my income on books. I mean, a lot. Seriously. It's a problem.
No. I generally like zombie books. I'm a fan of the genre, and I was excited about this new twist on the typical storyline. It was a little too juvenile for me. The teen romance parts undermined the philosophical moments R has throughout. The scene with zombie "sex" was also pretty weird.
The voice was a little whispery, which sometimes enhanced the work, but it also made it slow and it conveyed a tone that didn't always seem to fit. The voice shift for Julie was particularly difficult to enjoy.
I think R has a lot of thoughts about what it means to live as a human. These moments are pretty deep, and I enjoyed them.
There's not really much I can say about this one. You pretty much get what you're expecting. There are not any twists or turns, and the ending is pretty predictable. For fans of zombie flicks, books and tv shows this is a nice addition. It's a fun take on the inner workings of the walking dead. It's a quick listen, entertaining, and the narrator does a great job.
Yes, it was entertaining.
Yes, because we all like zombie stories.

Be a little more realistic about the resolution.
Sure. It was a fun read with a different view of the zombie apocalypse. I just wish the end wasn't resolved with a magical solution.
I believe he did a real good job playing the zombies and "human" characters.
Now I need to see the movie.
Audible, take me away!
I was disappointed with this one. Not enough romance. Should have just watched the movie.
I'd say it's in the top ten.
I cannot compare it to anything I've read, It's unique.
I loved all the little differences with each character's voice and a the fact that each one was believable.
Well, a couple of tears fell, yeah and I smiled quite a few times at the conversations. Nothing extreme, but it was a very pleasant experience.
I would have liked the book to last longer, though. Is there another?
