Yes. It was extremely well written and well read. Great story that keeps you engaged from start to finish.
This is one of my first zombie books so I really have nothing to compare it to. I usually don't like zombie stories but a friend recommended this and it was fantastic.
She really captured the emotion of the story and the main character, Angel. Her voice was just perfect for this story.
It did make me laugh in some spots, and it made me really feel sorry for Angel. I was hooked on this story from the opening paragraph.

I don't like zombies because I don't like gross, but I liked this book anyway. Allison McLemore's narration was great, and maybe it was the Southern accent, but it reminded me a little bit of the Sookie Stackhouse series. This was a fun book to listen to, and although there were definitely gross parts, it wasn't too terribly gory.
I loved this book, thoughy it didn't have as much romance as I'd hoped. (I read this for Felicia Day's Vaginal Fantasy Book Club, yes that's the name. Lol)
They way they treat the Zombie condition is really fascinating in this book. But what I enjoyed most about this book is the evolution of the main character and how she learns to adapt to her new life. The book explores some dark themes, but it is hopeful and inspiring.
Don't listen while you are eating or drinking though. Ewwww.
Funny, Blunt, and Graphic!
Obviously the main character and because she was funny.
Great voice and ability to read out loud.
Ya one part reminded me of my step dad, how he collect every jar when it gets empty. So one day he can can fruits or whatever. In the book a similar scene comes into play!
This book was great and kinda had the feel like the TV show True Blood, but with zombies!
This is a very interesting take on zombies. While I love zombie movies, I haven't read or listened to a zombie book. This is a very good addition to the genre.
I like the way the discovery of what the main character was is described. Very well done.
I love her sweet gentle voice with just a hint of accent. It makes a nice counter-point to some of the more gruesome and graphic details. Plus she just sounds hot :-).
My original expectations for this book was not high, but after a reading I found the author and the book very charming. This series is a must listen for a light escape.
This was my first audible experience and I was so pleased. The story was fun, drew you in, and made you laugh. I really enjoyed the whole thing,
Can not wait to hear the next one!
I'm 30 years old, from the east coast of America, and my favorite books are realistic, but stretch the truth and the laws of physics.
This was entertaining. And I loved the Sookie books. But, I don't think I loved them enough to appreciate another series that is so much like them. It's like the author replaced vampires with zombies and gave the condition a medical cause instead of bringing in a bunch of supernatural stuff. The mystery part is a little boring and the main character catches on to what's going on a little too slowly. It's your typical supernatural investigator mystery with a first person, female point of view, though the writing is nice and balanced for the most part. The narrator makes some characters sound like they have a serious learning disability too. All in all, if you really miss Sookie then you may want to give it a read. I'd recommend it for light reading but I don't think I'll be getting into the series.

Have been holding off listening to this series cuz I figured was going to be a boring read. I was wrong. The combo of the author and narrator made this a fun read. Thank you!
