I prefer a story where you can become attached to a character, or a hand full of them. In this book, the author intends for you to attach yourself to the environment, the overall aura of the situation. In this book, though very well read, there is not a single story to follow, but those of multiple survivors.
I would listen to this author again, but investigate prior to purchasing what type of book it actually is.
None - There is not a specific character that you follow throughout the book.
This is not an applicable question given the type of book.
Maybe. It was an interesting story.
I liked they used lots of people to read this story to differentiate the characters. I felt it helped me keep up better rather than using one person to do 20 voices.
It was a very engaging story. Hard to put down.
Tell us about yourself!
It was perfect! I loved the different voices for each character and how well it was done!
In my top 5!
It's a full cast, so no, I haven't heard anything like it before.
Awesome narrative approach-- it's a bunch of first-hand accounts of the zombie war. All-star cast and very tastefully done! I haven't seen the movie, but I doubt it can compare to this. I consume alot of audiobooks and I took a chance on this one (since I didn't know much about it) and it's one of my all time favourites! Check it out! You won't be disappointed!!
The best performance of a book put to words that I've had. The actors voicing the characters do a fantastic job, convey the dire situations depicted in the book.
The dialog was very good, as well as the acting.
I didn't expect to get through this book quickly, but I couldn't stop listening to it, maybe not in one sitting but definitely one weekend.
Sci-fi and survival horror are my favorites as long as they are not overly emotion drenched (no love stories!).
The unabridged version has some great gap fillers that flesh out other things you hear in the presentation. I have listened to this book a half dozen times and I keep coming back to it.
Completely common and unremarkable.
I really enjoyed the complete cast reading the book. Many actors really in charter made for that theater of the mind feel.
Well done all around, too hard to give "one"!
Mark Hamil's character was very good.
To long to do that but I did get through it in 5 days in a row.
Sticks to Walking Dead zombie doctrine. No supercharged zombies. Great book!
Part time artist - Like to listen to audiobooks when I am working and creating.
WAY ABOVE EXPECTATIONS
The human side of the stories
I am not a fan of Zombie books. I picked this book after all the movie trailers ( have not seen the movie yet) but really after listening to the sound clip. I thought it was so cool to have it performed not just read. I was not disappointed this book went way above my expectations. I have always thought zombies were lame. But this book was so great how it went about telling the story about the war, to the point were you could believe that it could happen. Super glad I took the chance on something that I normally would not listen too.
Two enthusiastic thumbs up!
boring and predicable once you see the authors midset
The narration was fine
This book is just a bunch Bill, Al, and Barack's talking point strung together with zombies dropped in as an after thought.
Over and over I have to explain to zombie haters why I like this book.I love post-apocalytiic tales, but WWZ has a slightly different angle. It's a thought-provoking exploration of what MIGHT happen to the world, should we have to fight this kind of war and what this kind of unconventional enemy/threat would be like; from many, many POV. It's especially entertaining with the top-notch cast and the addition of the other material makes it far more interesting. Mark Hamill is a favorite, much to my own surprise!
