I enjoyed the story but this author takes to long to get to the point. It was difficult to remain focused during his long conversations with himself and his inner dialogs.
Its a shame i had to find this series through the cross over with " a new world" becaus lissening to the character in that book with no back ground i didnt think i would enjoy the series bit like with the "adrians undead diarys" series this book brings an equall amount of serious to silly with a good story happening in the meantime. I recommend and hope the others are as entertaining.
While it attempted to try some new stuff with the genre, I could not overcome how poorly the females were written. There was not on female that was at all useful in the series. It was just too blatant to ignore, and came to a head with the scene at the gas station with Mike's wife and daughter. The only female sin Mike's family, a self proclaimed survivalist, and these two women can't even tell if the guns are loaded. And still they go out recklessly and then decide to get some smokes. It was horrible, and frankly insulting. I cannot support a book with such little regard to its characters. It doesn't feel fresh or unique within the zombie genre, just a throwback to the 1960s mindset.
Unless I saw some massive shift in his writing, no I would not.
The voice actor did a great job realign the story. I heard that there are loads of grammar and spelling mistakes in the published form, that is fixed in the audio book. No complaints about the voice acting what so ever.
Frankly all fo them, even the decent male characters aren't really that great. They aren't even really well fleshed out characters, more just tropes put in for a spot.
I was very disappointed by this book, and although I usually don't give up on a series I just can't say this is a very good series. The humor is lacking in a lot of spots, the characters are not well written nor described, and frankly the fat and gay jokes are insulting not funny, and its really disheartening just how much the writer must think women in a crisis are useless, since he goes to such lengths to ensure that no female is useful at all in this world, and is only good to yell or go into hysterics at critical moments.
No no no no! I really tried to give this book a chance. Like 5 hours tried. It was horrible. The characters are basic. The lesbian a butch, the black man big and scary, the mentally disabled slow and stuttering, the women stupid and slow. I felt offended by it almost from the first line. The reviews I saw on audible suggested it might be good, but wow! I have as of yet NEVER not finished a book I bought, but I bought the first 3 in this series (on the sale buy 2 get one free), and I will never even download the other 2. The humor is offensive, and the fat jokes, lesbian jokes, Mexican jokes, the JOKES are soooo not funny. After the first hour I tried thinking of it solely as a comedy thinking that might help me through. It didn’t. It felt like whole pages were being skipped. Very fragmented. I wasn’t ever sure where I was in the story. I can’t go on with this review. I did NOT enjoy this book, and sadly will NEVER download anything by this author again because of this book. Luck to the next sale.
This book was awesome. If I had one complaint it would be Sammy Davis Jr. Narrating. Other than that it kept me on the edge of my seat all day... At work;)
No if same man narrates there is noway I would purchase and listen.
I bought on nook and read it, the whole series, my husband wanted to hear out loud, and we both thought narrator was awful, we didn't get more than 30 minutes in.
Shame I wasted one of my free books on my trial on this one.
