the narrator forgot the accents of a few characters,and dumb down some of the others..
Well, I was SO excited to see the final book available despite Z.A. Recht's untimely death. I thought for sure the family or publisher (or whomever decided) would surely have chosen an author to do the series justice. Boy was I wrong. The first part of book 3 is great and obviously leading up to something. Then Mr. "Brannan" takes over. I'm sure he's a good author but Recht had great insight into the military workings and lingo. It seems the "new" author had to do some research and clearly fell short. It just seemed as if the last part of the book tried to be a quick "resolve" but there was NO resolution, only a continuation of the story which led me wanting more. I don't want to spoil anything but it was full of nonsensical actions that the other two books would have never included. For instance the guy going out to wander around after he should have been monitored for quite some time just to make certain he was "safe". Then there's the group of survivors who have made such an epic heroic journey in the first two books - now they talk too loudly or make huge fires that result in their death. They would have never made those mistakes by Z.A.'s "pen". Another example is the sheriff who was full of common sense toughness is now suddenly super GI Joe (though never being in the military) instead of a down home hero who gets the bad guys with his experience, common sense & wit. Mason, the hero in the past is nothing more than a means to an end in this book. I felt like the story was left hanging and he could have done so much more. I'm really disappointed and had the first two books not been so good I would have given it a 2 star instead of a 3. The narrator was great as usual though some of this spanish american accents could use a little work. It's a Shame really. RIP Z.A Recht your stories will be missed!!!
There was a lot of hashing over items that happened in books 1 & 2. Not a lot of new stuff happened until close to the end. I feel the author was trying to force this into 3 books and he just didn't have enough material.
Well, I had to double check to make sure this is the same person who was suppose to have narrated books 1 &2 and it was. I think he does a horrible job with this book. Was he drunk?
Nope. The series made into 1 movie, yep. Stand alone. Nope
I was apprehensive at the start of the full series but, by the time I made it 1/3 way into the 1st book, I was hooked! Survivors fulfilled a great ending & I caught myself fully involved knowing most characters personalities hitting both highs & lows as it rampaged in action to the end! My 1st "Zombie" books & I was surprised in fully enjoying all 3 books in the series but the best was saved for last!
mind blowing excitement. I was sad to see it end. completely enjoyed it.. wish there was more. but it ended well.
The story was okay ... the ending had a lot of huge holes in it I could drive my SUV through it. It just did not make any sense at all! I won't spoil it but I'm glad it was at the end because after I read it I really didn't want to go any further. The performance of the narrator was great, as always. The editing of the audiobook was not very good at all. There were many repeats, mid-sentence cut outs, among other issues. I'm glad I didn't pay full price for this and honestly feel cheated out of the credit I spent to get it.
