The story and action flows nicely. The characters are compelling. It was nice to read a zombie novel that actually explained, in a new and refreshing way, how the apocalypse starts, instead of, all of a sudden, for no apparent reason, the dead start rising all over the world!
I also enjoyed the narrator's reading of the novel. I disagree with a lot of the other reviews on how William Dufris was overly animated. I thought he did a great job of bringing each character's personality to life. I've already begun the next book, Fall of Night.
As always, I continue to be a huge fan of Jonathan Maberry.
The story was ok. The narrator was not a good addition in my opinion. I am used to Ray Porter's style performance. Not Maberry's best work. The only reason I will listen to more of this series is that it intersects with shoe Ledger in book 3.
I picked this booked because I am finished with the Joe Ledger series which I love and with the upcoming crossover novella wanted to see what the other characters were about, but i found this book to be extremely boring, I could not even finish
The narration was terrible! I like Jonathan Maberry, but please get someone else, next time.
Bronson Pinchot, Paul Hoffman?
The story was entertaining
I just didn't like the narrator.
The bad guy is plenty creepy.
It has zombies.
The dynamic of the reporter and the video guy is enjoyable.
The protagonist's cop buddy is a wonderful human being.
Very melodramatic and self-important for a cheese-ball zombie novel.
Tiny spoiler: In particular it's got some super irritating parts told from the perspective of a zombie that almost made me put the book down.
It "scientifically" explains the zombies with science so cartoonishly inaccurate that Mary Baker Eddy the founder and discoverer of Christian Science would be proud.
The protagonist is a faux-feminist, dude in a woman's body character, and she has unrealistic abandonment issues.
Don't listen to the angry would be writers comment. It almost convinced me not to buy this book by misleading me on the idea that this is another "smart zombie" book it's not. It's a terrify story of a mad carrier and people trapped in their own bodies watching themselves devour their children and force the pain of living death onto everyone who loved them too much to put them down without hesitation. Give this book a chance it's truly a chilling novel.
Mr. Maberry is the George Romero of the 21st century. His military knowledge and depiction is beyond life-like. Mr. Dufris's performance in narration put me in the story. Excellent job!
