Say something about yourself!
Let me start by saying I am not a fan of the warm and fuzzy sentient zombie section of z fiction. In fact I hate most of them. I like action and dumb shamblers. That said, I really enjoyed this book so for those who are more inclined to this type of zombie story I bet you will really love it! This book is well narrated, beautifully written, interesting with good character development and wholly unique.
No idea. This is the first time I experienced it through audio.
Stony. He is the main character.
Same as above, although Mr. Blunt came in second.
No extreme reaction.
It was a fun read in between the big stories. Better than I expected for a Daily Deal.
I hate to not finish a book but this story is so slow paced I just can't stick with it any longer. It is an interesting premise but just goes nowhere way too slowly.
The story is overall very slow as it chronicles the "life" of Stony Mayhall, but I still found it entertaining for the most part.
There's not much more I can say without spoilers. The cause of the dead rising is never discovered. The story begins in the 1970's. In this world, "Night of the Living Dead" was a documentary, not a horror flick, but afterword begins to follow real world history up to the present. If you're looking for a traditional zombie story, this isn't it.
Yes I would listen again (not immediately, but sometime in the future). The story covers such a span of time that the flavour and scenery changes enough to keep it fresh.
It was one of the most original takes on the "differently alive" that I have read / listened to. In my extensive zombie reading, only David Worthington's "Monster Island" series had as left of field take on how the undead live.
That would have to be Stoney himself
I agree with the comment that convinced me to buy this book..."You will never live as much as this dead boy".
Love makes us all one.
Stony. He bribed the gap between races as so many great historical figures have in the past
I just couldn't get into this story
JK Rowlings new book
No I haven't listened to him
I didn't finish listening to this audio
I really enjoyed this story. I am not into horror zombie or vampire stories which this is NOT, so I'm glad I gave it a try (based on the excellent reviews). It is actually a very heartwarming story about an unusual zombie (I guess that's sort of an oxymoron) that tries very hard to live in a normal world. You like Stony from the start and the story has enough twists and turns to keep you listening, and listening. It was also told in a light hearted tone interspersed with humor, which I really enjoy. I like happy endings and was a bit afraid this one would disappoint, but it did not. It's so frustrating to listen for 12-15 hours and then have the ending either leave you hanging or depressed. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for something different. I will look forward to listening to another book by this author.
Different zombie perspective
He was very entertaining. Did a great job keeping me interested
.....after the fever passes. Life begins again.
I was initially very skeptical of this book. Its definitely not you typical zombie thriller. The main character draws you in, and keeps you interested. I wish there was a bit more zombies gone wild in this book. But that's not the focus of the story. I liked it!
