available to lend their vocal talents to this story. Good plot, good character development but man narration is the key. I'll stay away from this narrator. IMHO the lack of subtle changes to shift characters ruined it for me. PeacE
I love Maberry's Joe Ledger series and I've listened to them more than once. This book is just okay. The story is the reaction of each and every one of the small town's citizens reaction to the fact of zombies in the town. EVERY SINGLE PERSON. The book moves slow because we have to know what every person thinks about seeing the impossible. I don't think I'll finish it.
Jonathan May be does it again. Story is wonderful. Start building slowly, making sure
you know who's the good guy and course who are the threats.. I know its a great read when you are rooting for good guy. You're listing to the book and in mind you tell the to RUN! If you're a Mayberry fan don't pass this audible book up. RE
Downloading the second book now. I wondered what Maberry would do after the Joe Ledger books. I'm glad I know the answer. I really liked the change in direction of protagonist "Dez" Desdemona Fox away from Joseph Francis Ledger. Maberry's touch is not a "feminized" machismo rehash. One could say of the genre, "been there, done that, got the mangled blood-soaked t-shirt but Maberry continues to give us stuff that never elicits the exhaled groan of, "Oh, please!"
William Dufris is fantastic! (Stephenson's Cryptonomicon is a must listen as well as Scalzi's works) Dufris could read take-out menus and it would be auditory gold.
I'm glad I can add Maberry to my list of authors that never disappoint and am anxious to see what new creation is unleashed from their minds.
Yes, mainly because sometimes I feel like I missed something because of the times that I listen.
The camera man. Just liked him he had the most sense.
No never have. At first I wasn't sure I was gonna be ok with his performance I am very picky. ..but as the story progressed I decided I was ok with it.
Billy trout don't know why
The book gave a different take on how the apocalypse would start.
As good a book as any I listened to in quite awhile. Maberry did a great job writing this one. The characters were compelling and the story just grabbed me and wouldn't let go. Dufris did a masterful job of narration. I have no idea why so many were so critical of the job he did. I enjoyed the way he voice acted the book. I guess its a matter of personal preference. Though why one would prefer a droning characterless narration to this one is beyond me.
I've been on a Zombie apocalypse binge this year. Let me know if you've read any really good ones not on my list.
Fast paced & entertaining spin on the zombie thing. Another from the zombie plague disease angle but with some interesting new takes on what its like to be among the walking dead.
