Most zombie books are variations on a theme. Return Man has many of the next generation elements - the compassionate zombie hunter (a la The Last Mail Man), living in the Dead Zone, is sent on a mission to the origin of the apocalypse to find a key scientist. The story has flaws, but it is well written and the main protagonist, Henry Marco, is complex and compelling. While I wasn't immediately drawn to the narrator, he grew on me. I painted my entire bedroom to justify a continuous listen to the end.
Just a very well played twist on the zombie apocalypse line
Main charector...flawed and very real
Great book!! One of my faves!!
One of the better storylines. Great narration. Very easy to listen to and get sucked into for hours.
I would listen to the book again. A creative thriller.
The Horseman encounter.
Mr. Clark's voice and demeanor was an excellent fit for this audio book.
Near the end when he realized that all of his efforts to find his wife were in vein.
I am a bookaholic. If not reading a real book, then listening to one during my daily commute or as I go to sleep each night.
Definitely one of my favorites that I will listen to again and again. Looking forward to more from this author.
Each chapter got better and better. The seamlessly of current story and backstory was definitely a plus.
Have to say that my fav was Wu. His evolution throughout the book is one that I was amazed by. Definitely can get into his psychology.
I don't read fiction for politics and social commentary. I read them for entertainment. I could only get about an hour in until the author started droning on and on about politics. Not fictional politics that could actually play a roll in the story, but mostly real world stuff and how it could relate distantly to the situation. Maybe it gets better afterward, but my past experience with any fiction is that if it starts to get off on a tangent like this, especially early on, you can look forward to the whole book being that way. I'm glad I could return it. Judging by the reviews from other sites, I saved a lot of time and disappointment. The only zombie book worse than this was "Feed".
