it is the easiest listen ever..if you enjoy the genera; this is zombies 101 basically
the best zombie book ever written. even if you dont like zombies then the human and the what if factors keep you hooked
"Brilliant - and different to the film"
This is a brilliant audiobook. My best so far. Excellent narration from a cast of readers.
It is atmospheric and really involves you. Different enough from the film to keep you hooked. Recommended!
"It's as good as you've been told it is."
This audiobook does exactly what a good one should and offers more than you would get from reading it on your lonesome. The fragmented story is great, the voice acting is fantastic and the book manages to be refreshingly original about something as tired and gone over as zombies.If you've come here on after watching the film don't worry you haven't had anything spoiled and if anything your in a good situation of having low expectations.
The structure lends itself to listening in fragments, whether on runs or in the car but works equally well listening in larger chunks.
The narrative moves along at a fair clip, there's a very broad range of characters, all well written, and Brooks puts in a fair effort giving explanations to the standard problems with a zombie apocalypse.
I didn't listen all the way through on the first listen but on subsequent listens I have.
"Fantastic Audiobook. Better than the Film."
Yes I would recommend this Audiobook to a Friend. Especially one that likes Zombie fiction. It is very fast pace story, that keeps you wanting more.
There are to many memorable moments to the story to name one. It is written in the form of a journal ,recording interviews with different people who were involved in the outbreak....... Building a comprehensive story, from different perspectives.
There were numerous narrators used in this Audiobook, to perform the different people reporting their experiences of the Zombie outbreak. All of them were EXCELLENT & convincing.
Yes, it was certainly a Book I wanted to listen to all in one sitting. I wanted to know more about what happened, the events leading up to the event & eventually the outcome.
A really great Book. I would highly recommend it to anyone. A good thriller and a excellent Zombie story,
A top notch story that is well performed throughout. forget the film, this is how it should be done!
"brutal but very realistic"
for a time there I almost believed that zombies could be real, yes I thought it was a good audio, in easy chapters which were self contained
so much better than the film
"The cast is fantastic!"
I was really unsure when I first started this. The accent of the opening cast member felt a little hammy, but it's amazing once it gets going! It's really nice having something read by a full cast but not as a typical dramatisation, the interview style of the book works perfectly as an audiobook, and having the author as the journalist/ narrator is a nice touch. If you found this because of the movie then you have a lot ahead of you and might find it a bit strange at first, the plot of the film is loosely based around the early history that is recounted by the characters in the book, all the movie really does is set the scene for everything that you're about to be told here.
When recommended to me I didn't realise it was a documentary type and was a pleasant surprise, a lot of it i enjoyed and I recommend listening to it
Makes you think what would happen if zombies really existed worth the money and time
