I'll keep it short. With few exceptions (looking at you, Mark Hamill) the voice acting is wooden. Wholly bereft of emotion. The inflections are wrong and seem as though they were read straight from the page with no preparation. If you're on the fence, pass.
Some of these performances are among the best you will find. Alan Alda for one.
Some are halting, stumbling,first time actors that have not bothered to memorize their lines.
It is also a little bit deceptive to call this a full cast performance since that vast majority of the time, there is one reader.
I have never much cared for audio books that have multiple readers. However, for this story it only enhanced the enjoyment of the read.
The perspective of the protagonist is ingenious. The authors choice to write this from the perspective of ten years following the events is creative beyond my thought prospects. The way the author writes this story makes it believable, he considers aspects that are intelligent and thought provoking. I was never a fan of the Zombie genre, this book defies traditional similar stories. I cannot imagine anyone that enjoys a good read not enjoying this story. It is my hope that this author expands his writing. I would give anything he chooses to write about a read.
I have listened to this book three times. That should leave no doubt in anyone's mind to my enjoyment of this book.
One of the most well thought out books I have read. The author dives into ever aspect of what would happen if zombies took over the planet, he left no stone unturned!
Loved it. Kept me occupied for four hours each night for three nights as I vacuumed classrooms, mopped hallways, and cleaned toilets. It made me think. I was sad when it ended
I had already "physically" read this book, but the audiobook might be better. Great character acting (except a few), but Most of them kill it (Mark Hamill especially!).
If you like zombies, must read.
If you couldn't care less about zombies but like any of the following genres: historical fiction, drama, military strategy...must read!

I listen about four hours daily, and nothing has compared to the production of this book in this format. it's an all star cast. plus vs reading the book which I did first, it's easier to realize when a chapter interview is with the same person as a previous chapter, since it's the same cast member, when reading, I didn't catch that
