Hard to believe the same author wrote this book and the addictive Joe Ledger series! Dead of Night did next to nothing for me. I found nothing new compared to dozens of other zombie fiction books I've read. The writing was average, the characters were never "real" to me, the plot was predictable and so was the ending. I didn't quite want to throw my phone across the room when it was over, but neither do I want to continue this series.
I have two words for this book and it is the star of the book Desdimona Fox. When I grow up I want to be her, with out the issues. Great writing, wonderful narration.....fleshed out characters. Worth the credit.
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.
