Couldn't say. Only listened to the audio.
Compares to The Remaining, Day By Day Armageddon and other zombie/survivalist stories.
Guy Williams was a good reader whom I found engaging. Not the best with a southern accent, but quite interpretive and enjoyable.
I'd say yes...I didn't find anything about it I disliked.
If you like survivalist/zombie fare, you'll enjoy this one.
Sure. The characters are a little 2d at time and i think the author can sometimes get lost trying to teach us some moral parable but all in all fun.
So it this the spot where you write the spoiler? I found this when I had powered through all the DEAD books.
I can't say I have. I listened to one out of order and it was my first time with Guy.
Yea, it isn't that kind of book. Oh it tries to be but with little success.
I am not done with this book, but i felt the need to put out some much needed information that i seemed to have missed in others reviews. The narrator is terrible. He cant do female voices well, at all. I dont expect perfection when a narrator is doing a womans voice, but this guy makes them sound like Jim Carrey doing Vera Di Milo on In Living Color. Actually, half the men get that same narration as well.
The story is decent, and i eventually can focus on that. But man, if the narrator was good i know id really enjoy this book.
Narrator Guy Williams is Fantastic and the characters of Eric and Gabe are veryreal and believable. Second favorite Z series next to my all time favorite Joe Ledger series. A VERY CLOSE SECOND TOO!
Get the series from Beginning to End. You will not be disappointed!
N/A. Uh, who does this???
I am somewhat embarrassed to admit that I read / listen to many of these types of series. Before this, by far my favorite was Day by Day Armageddon. I think it still may be but I think this one may tie it given this first book. It was great. The reader was excellent - not to slow, not too fast. The story was excellent - as if I was the main character (maybe that's why I liked it). Regardless...I'm moving on to the second book now. So many other series have been disappointments compared to Day by Day so I am thrilled that I have found one that competes.
Why does the review form have to be in all these sections? This is the first review I've written and this format is dumb. Makes me not want to write another review.
I found this book pretty boring. The hero (and presumably the author) were very absorbed in pointing out how clever, smart and chauvinistic the hero could be; however in doing so made the hero come across more as a self-obsessed teenager. Pretty boring reading for a grown up zombie book lover
That Gabe was a squared away Marine
The Remaining by D. Molles, Day By Day Armageddon by J Borne, and Going Home by A. American. All of them involved survival in worst case scenario.
Who ever was the gun or military advisor for this book failed. The device you use to load bullets in is called a magazine. Not clip. hopefully someone fixes this problem in the next book. Other than that the book was a good listen.
Top ten Zombie apocalypse reads.
Z A Recht`s first two books for character development, in the light of Armageddon.
Gives body to the characters and engrosses the listener.
I laughed and cared that they survived what was thrown at them, but knew they where built to survive. indomitable.
Read first three thought they where great. Gab & Eric are a class act as individuals and as a team.
No - lacks originality, Author gifts the protagonist with millions of dollars, black belt martial art abilities, and to cap it all the voice of an Angel and the ability to play guitar like Eric Clapton. Deeply loves his guns and thousands of words spent describing different weapon attributes.
The most interesting part for me ( and it also nearly stopped me from completing the book - sorry) was the almost homo - erotic descriptions of Gabriel, the "buddy" of the hero Eric, and how they enjoyed grappling ..The least interesting was the portrayal of the main character, he came across as conceited, snide, waspish and a know - it - all. Never mind surviving the apocalypse, it would be hard to see him surviving the company of strangers for more than an hour, he was that annoying.
I think the narration lacked dimesion and believability - maybe it was the editing or studio work, but different characters seem to have inhaled helium before speaking.
Please God, no.
