The unraveling of the storyline. It was more like listening to a great movie than traditional storytelling
The climax when he joined the rebellion and then again when he was captured. Edge of my seat.
Sound quality was 100% perfection, His diction and pronounciation, the clear distinction between characters because of his tones and inflections.
His sympathy and love for his humans
Great book great narration
This is by far the best zombie story I have read or seen depicted in movie/TV. Gets at zombie issues that all of us have wondered about but were afraid to ask (like do/can zombies have sexual urges). And it is also one of the best overall fiction stories I have heard, regardless of subject. The narration is impeccable as well. My only regret is that it was not longer.
Maybe narrated by David
Shallow character development and incohesive story line
Interesting take on zombie apocalypse. Original.
This is a quiet, thoughtful book that achieves something unusual: an entirely new perspective on an old, familiar tale - the zombie horror story. But this is not horror, more of - a history, or a memoir. By the end, I cared deeply what happened to Stony and his family, or really, his many families. There are certainly questions that remain unexplained, but somehow, they aren't that important. I recommend it to any fans of the more thoughtful "what if?" genre of fantasy.
I think this is a story that could definitely have a sequel. I feel like their is more story, more Stony waiting.
The narration was good, but it had an odd rhythm too it. The pace felt slow and just "off" somehow. I tried listening at a faster speed thinking that would help, but it didn't.
No. But I prefer my SciFi minus any predominance of one religious view.
Young. Simple. Homespun.
Maybe for the Hallmark Channel.
I am addicted to audio books, mostly fantasy. I have alwayz loved to read but could never find the time. This way I keep my mind occupied with wonderful stories and don't get caught up in life's stresses. I'm so glad I found this site.
This is not my favorite kind of book, but I thought the writing was very good. And Stony has a great sense of humor. I usually prefer to read books in a series, but I still enjoyed it

I love zombies. And I love reading about zombies, but sometimes the books all blend together.
Raising Stony Mayhall was a completely refreshing look at zombies, and I really loved the mythology used. I bought this book on a whim, so I was very surprised by how much I enjoyed it.
My favorite part of the book was the time setting, loved the revisionist aspect of adding zombies to our history. Gregory also creates a large cast of well developed characters, even though Stony is the narrator. The book also served up some surprises that I didn't see coming.
Great narration by David Marantz only increases the zombie goodness!
I have been a book junky my whole life. When I listened to my first audiobook, I fell instantly in love! I have quite eclectic tastes.
Interesting twist on the Zombie genre. Undead with the feelings of the living made it an interesting and good story. I really enjoyed it.
