No one I would want to interact with. Depressingly bad because out of the hundreds of audio books I have listened to, this is without a doubt is the worst, and that so many people gave it good reviews it makes me very sad. I can always find a positive aspect of most any book so here it is. Thank God it wasn't longer. It would have been one of the few books I have given up on, but I had to go on, like being unable to look away from an accident. Prejudiced, masaganistic, homophobic, and just plain illiterate, and how many sequels does it have? I'm not sure but one is too many. I rarely offer up reviews but I just couldn't let this one pass without warning other innocent buyers. I'm sorry to be so negative. It makes me feel bad writing this. Look elsewhere, there are many good books in this genre.
There was nothing I can think of that stands out. It was all bad. See above.
This is the first time I have hear Mr. Runnette. Perhaps he submersed himself in the tone and feeling of the book and did a great job. I can't condemn his performance based on this material.
Try "The Remaining" , "Extinction Age", "The Dog Stars", "The Joe Ledger Novels", "World War Z", "Day By Day Armageddon", to name a few.
I was excited by all the titles in the series. I was eager to get started. This series is simply not for me. I found it campy and full of toilet humor. The main character hit me as slapstick. I assume that is the intention. The supporting characters were simply idiot burdens in his life.
I thought the narration was done by Richard Kind at first. :-)
I am not calling the book horrible in general, but it was not one I enjoyed.
He vomits every 10min and the some of this book is like the green mile with the retard fat kid and Rambo leading the way and needs more zombies but the books not bad just ok
Norwegian in a English world!
Another one reading it! Sean Runnette made me wish i WAS a Zombie! Dear Mark Tufo, i am sure your book is better then the 3 i gave it, but Sean Runnette made me fall asleep! Holly macaroni i wish i never got this serie! WOW!
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.
Terrible writing and hobbled together plot. The narrator did you the best he could under the circumstances and there were some funny moments but that's all.
a different spin on the zombie apocalypse subject. I was hooked inmediately and stayed deeply in grossed in the story. can't wait to hear the next book.
