Very interesting, I am always more interested in how people survive during an outbreak by preparation and the early parts of the out break and less interested once the living humans turn out to be the bad guys, this shows Gabriel and Erics prep although more detail would have been great (still good), and Eric meets some good people on the way to Gabe which is not always the case in zombie apocalypse books, I loved it
Eric, Gabe and Ethan were all good
This and the first day by day Armageddon have been my favorite zombie apocalypse books
I would say this book ranks mid to high for zombie stories for me. 7.5 out of 10
Worth the credit. The second book is also good. I can't wait for the third book to be released. The only negative thing would be the timeline seems to slow way down at a few points. It could be a long series but that would be cool with me.
This is a good story with Eric who is s really easy going character and just happen to plan for the end of the world with his new buddy Gabe. It is a all out interesting story as Eric interacts with people better in a Zombie Apocalypse than before in a normal world. You will not be disappointed in this story.
Highly recommended to anyone who likes post apocalyptic/zombie stories.
Fast paced, lots of action.
I've listened to most of the popular zombie books in the past year and its been hard finding good ones now. This one I never heard of in anyone's list of favorites but it was one of the better ones I've listened to in a while. I'm going to get the second one now.
I like the way the author engaged the concept of survival.
I disliked the interhuman communication. It seemed staged and unrealistic.
The story is too clean; it lacks grit.
Nothing stands out.
I listened to the book as a pastime, but was not engaged.
The narration was lacking. Every other male character sounded like a surfer-dude-stoner, and every other female like a valley-girl.
The story is almost good.
Well apparently that was not enough.
The story is solid, the characters are believable (mostly), and you care about them (mostly). I would recommend this to others. This book deals more with the story of the main characters and less describing the dead over and over and over like some other authors in this genre.
Is it Dostoyevsky, or Tolstoy? No, but it's a zombie book what are you expecting.
This is only my first book in the series, so I do not want to pass judgment just yet on the ranking amongst other books/series I have listened to, but it was a nice easy listen.
Just because world has ended, you don't have to be an a**hole.
This book felt real. It was something that I felt that I could actually see myself doing, should I find myself rolling in extra money. Eric is just a regular guy, but he was lucky to count himself in the few who were prepared for the end. I can take some kickboxing lessons. I can learn about firearms and melee weapons. I can stockpile essentials. All of the things Eric did, he did with the help of his buddy, but everything seems pretty self-explanatory to those of us who love this genre. It was a refreshing listen, as I feel like I could be Eric. I am looking forward to where the author takes us next!
characters were just clichéd version of real people. the good guys said sir and ma'am and the bad ones wherd thugish. just easy to see where the story was going before it happened.
