This one wrapped up a bunch of story lines and completed part of the saga without making a cliff hanger ending. Good comic book hero fun! I look forward to the next one about Zap.

As the previous two books there is some good stuff, and some not so much.
The Ex series has a very original premise - superheroes against zombies, this way you wont loose your beloved characters to the mindless horde of undead.
That is a good thing and bad too because that worry that the next mission will be your last is absent. That I can recall no main character has died in the series.
Some characters simply disappear though, like the "Driver" from book 2. He was one of the main reason they were successful escaping from the base but simply is not mentioned in the book.
Another thing that strikes me is that it appear that each book is planned when the author starts to write it. Like he was not planning to write a second, a third and so forth.
But overall is a good listen. The narration is awesome.
Another intense rollercoaster in the world of the Ex-heros. If you enjoyed the first two books then I think you will really like this one.
I really enjoyed this installment, I like how it ties into the first and second, and has some really good meat to it. That said, I do wonder if Mr. Clines goes a bit too far with the villan, it may be hard to top it later.
I really like that this has three narrators. FYI: If you are planning to listen to Ex-Purgatory, it does not have three narrators, it only has Jay Snyder. To be fair, Jay is really good, but it does lose a little something without this whole cast.

The heroes are back fighting a new threat to The Mount this time. Part supernatural, part zombie, part superhero book “Ex-Communication” delivers on all three fronts. I’ll be honest, if you’re looking for a literary classic keep looking but if you’re looking for a story full of action and adventure and some witty banter this is a good choice.
The narration is great the production and multiple voices really help bring the story to life.
Yes, but calling them "characters" is being charitable
No. I got through the first couple of hours with great difficulty, then gave up. I'm trying to figure out how to permanently remove the book from my library now so I never have to see the title again.
A fruit salad of zombies, valley girls and nondiscript creatures with superpowers who otherwise are "just people too" set in L.A. at a time constantly referred to as "after the end of the world" - even though the world has obviously not ended. Probably the worst scene I was able to struggle through was one in which a dinner party involving a combination of humans and super humans are eating a lovely Italian dinner and dishing about a newly revealed relationship between two characters. Dicing fresh tomatoes - really? After the end of the world? As one character would say: OMG!
Have a renewed interest in books after falling in love with audio books. I am listening to all different genres and exploring different authors.
I have been conservative with my five star ratings this year -- so this is a high 4 rating.
I have really enjoyed the Ex- series by Peter Clines. My favorite part of this book was the introduction of Madeline and her point of view.
Fun, enjoyable, would recommend this book. I immediately moved to the next and final(?) book in the series as soon as I finished.
I recommend Peter Clines books to everyone that I think would enjoy them. There is a great overall story that I think people will like if they are into the genre, but there are also subtle things that readers of classic horror and comic books will pick up on that not every reader may get.
I think Max is my favorite character of this novel. You don't get to see that much of him in the previous books, and his character literally comes to life in this book. Every great hero, or heroes, needs a truly evil and diabolical villain to test there metal against.
Of course the climactic battle is great, but when George leaves the compound to face , who knows what, the interaction between himself and Stealth is classic Super Hero self-denial. It shows how even though these were once normal people, they no longer are.
Even though it's not a big dramatic event, when it is revealed what Corpse Girl's real situation is. It kind of broke my heart. No matter what you believe in we are alive and aware of our own mortality.
I'm writing this after re-listening to the book in order to prepare for the next. I am so glad I started the series when it first came out. I will anxiously await each new book until Mr. Clines decides it's all over. And then listen to them all again.
