I'm totally disappointed. I bought the first 2 books in the series through audible and LOVED THEM!
I listened to the first part of the 3ard book and LOVED it, but then, it got weird. I couldn't put my finger on it but it was all wrong. It was so wrong that I did some checking online and found that Recht had passed away in 2009. Come to find out, another writer (unknown) had finished the 3ard book. I was devastated. I knew it wasn't going to end well... and it didn't.
Don't get me wrong, the person who took on the task of finishing the 3ard book took on a near impossible task. However, in my personal opinion, the unknown author strayed far from Rechts direction and maimed the story unrecognizable. The ending was beyond disappointing. Rechts masterpiece of genius was destroyed.
The continued weaving of this story in book three. It is always great to see an author really continue a story through three books to such a high standard. I really enjoyed each book. I was sad to reach the end.
The Dog Stars by Peter Heller is great if you enjoyed these books. It doesn't have all the excitement with the dead coming back to life. It is more thoughtful and hopeful.
He did an excellent job developing each character.
The third book in this series maintains the high quality established in the first two books.
It delivers on great story, good action, and offers tidbits to the attentive listener to the first two books.
If you enjoy Zombie books (and who doesn't) this trilogy is amongst the best I've listened to. Well worth you time and money to give it a try.
The author has done an excellent job at getting all his needed characters to this point. The emotions and roles have been established even before you start listening. The pace of this book is high and keeps the listener engaged throughout.
When the sheriff escapes in to the woods and has to finish one of the attackers. It really puts the death nail in that he has to leave the life he built for his community.
He made most of the characters stand out when he was speaking as them. It really does help when there are so many male characters talking throughout.
More than you enemy at the door.
I love audio book like mostly Sci-fi book s zombies a fav
I was so happy to see that ZA's story could be finished so well I did not like book one but I guess I did enough to get book 2 it was better and 3 was better still. I liked the mix of type of zombies it made for a best of both worlds. I know I'm liking a book when i care about the people in the story. and after 3 books I cared for them.Not a great book but good.
This was one of the greatest endings to a series. I wish there would be more, but hey, all good things come to an end eventually. I was really envolved with the characters and wanted to cry, laugh and punch them at times, which when listening to an audio book a work is not a good thing. Its worth the credit....the ending alone is so packed with action that its worth it.
Nothing, this book was already a 5 star book as it is!
The entire story from start to finish always kept you wanting more!
This story has been done several times over. The "OMEGA MAN", starring Charlten Heston was the first in my lifetime, then Will Smith starred in the next "virus gets out" type story; I forget that titles name.
Anyhow, my problem is I've listened to so many books, I need to find new authors. This book is a simple, redundant, same old virus wipes out everyone, but like usual, one guy is immune. Big surprise there.
In conclusion, the book wasn't terrible. If you have not read "OMEGA MAN" or have seen the latest Will Smith movie, then this book is a 5 on a scale of 10. I have also found a "SERIOUS" drought in truly captivating plot lines or story lines in the last six months. Selfishly, I hope some new books come out which the reader can not stop listening to it.
NOTE:***** I am finding this in "The Twelfth Imam", followed by "The Tehran Inituative!" Go buy them. They are my first two books by this author. I am impressed which is not an easy thing for an author to get from me.
