This book actually boiled down to a very simple case of good and evil. There were parts of it that gave me chills. It helped renew my faith a little bit. I really enjoyed this book.
I've read several books in the Zombie Fallout series and have enjoyed them very much. However, I didn't have anxiety about what was going to happen next when I wasn't able to listen. I have a rule and I only listen to audio books in the car or at the gym. I broke my own rules with this series for the first time ever. With A.U.D I couldn't stop. I mean.. I couldn't stop at all..... I listened in bed at night and set my timer... first for 8 minutes... than 15.. than 1/2 an hour... then another half hour.. I couldn't help myself. I had to know what happened next. I had to listen at work the next day. I couldn't stand not knowing. And kids... this book is not really approrpiate for "most" work scenario's.
Chris Philbrook has a way of making you care and feel the same way about the characters in the book that Adrian does. Including Adrian. I'm totally engrossed. I reallize this review doens't tell you about the actual book... but all you really need to know is that these books are worth the credit and then some.
This might be my favorite zombie book yet. I wasn't sure how it would play out with it being a journal entry... but it's awesome. It's like a zombie book if zombie's were real. No crazy fights where the guy shouldn't live, but does. It's almost like a manual for the apocolypse. I loved this book. My only complaint is that it was too short. I'm downloading the next book in the series now. I totally recommend this book whether you are a guy or a girl. Yay!
I feel a little bit bad not giving it 5 stars, but I think a book has to be earth shattering for that... definitely a GREAT read, though.
LOVED this book. I usually just listen to my books in the car or at the gym, but I took this book with me into work and listened at home. The humor was awesome and the narrator was incredible, but the story itself was funny, refreshing and very unexpected. I didn't think this book had it in it to take the dark place that it went at the end with all of the humor, but it did and it really worked. I feel like I actually learned a lesson and I can't stop thinking about the message, whether it was implied or not.
Super funny, very witty and the best book I have read (listened to) in a very long time. Fast paced and fun, but very thought provoking..... for me anyway.
This reminded me a lot of The Sookie Stackhouse Series. It's a light listen with the same narrator as the Sookie Stackhouse series. It's kind of fun, sort of silly, somewhat predictable, but I enjoyed it for the most part. I might listen to the second book in the series after listening to something heavy. It's worth the credit :-)
I really, really wanted to LOVE this book, but I didn't. It fell really flat for me. I know lots of people loved it and I wanted ot be one of them, but just wasn't. I never felt a connection to any of the character's. I never really cared if anything bad happened to them after Jamie grew up and after... well.. the pastor stopped preaching at his first preaching job. I think this book may have a lot of appeal and may very well touch many deeply, it just didn't "touch" me in in the way that I had hoped. That being said.. I finished the book yesterday and had a bad dream about a little door last night... so you be your own judge. ;-)
I saw the end coming on this one and it was a bit predicatble. If you enjoy the series it's worth the read, but it's not my favorite Harry Bosch book.
This was a really good read. I absolutely did not see the end coming. It kept me engrossed the whole time and I thoroughly enjoyed it. If you liked Gone Girl you'll love this!
This was a really refershing read. It was fun, easy to follow and pick back up and it wasn't predictable. The characters were likable and believable. I was very pleased and definitely recommend it. I'll read more form this author. Two thumbs up.
This story reminded me a lot of Harry Dresden in the Dresden Files. It was a good book, not a great book, but definitely worth the credit. Sometimes the women's voices just weren't working for me, but the male voices were great. It's defintely something you can overcome. I will listen to more books from this author and continue on with the series. It was worth it.
I'm embarrassed to say I had really low expectations for this book, but thought it would be a fun read anyway remembering my own days on the Sunset Strip. Boy was I pleasantly surprised. I usually can't stand it when the author is the narrator. This book is the absolute exception to this rule. Bobbie Brown did a phenomenal job narrating this. You felt like you were right there with her. I think she's missed her calling. I would listen to her as a narrator on other books as well. She was THAT good.
As for the story... where to begin? I have no clue how she managed to pack so much into less than 6 hours. She found a way to make the stories fun and at times gut wrenching, too. You really felt like a friend of hers living it with her. Also, I can't say she threw anyone under the bus really. YES she spread dirt on many a "dirty rocker boy," but not in such a way as to make you feel like she sold anyone out. She spoke her mind about some of the different nasty girls from Hollywood, but I never felt like it was a cheap shot. I'm pretty sure I'll have to read this one again.
My only complaint.... is that the book was too short. I would have gladly listened to another 6 hours :-)
