A grown man weeps and vomits his way through a zombie apocalypse. I have never heard of a grown man spending so much time crying, even over boo-boos.
It was terrible. I allowed myself to be tortured through approximately 60% of the novel. A bunch of barely self-aware idiots trying to survive the zombies. The narrator's nearly mono-tonal delivery was the crappy icing on the manure cake.
As a skeptic, I am ashamed of my zombie fixation. I know that the human body is a machine, and once it is broken, it will not not come back to life. There is no scientific principle that would permit the existence of zombies, but here I am listening to yet another zombie book and liking it.
Joe Ledger is a badass. The novel is well written and the kept my attention all of the way through. I thought the narrator reproduced the "Joe Ledger Voice" that I envisioned well.
I think Jeff Lindsay really does the Dexter voice well. I would hope so, as he is the author. The thing that I hate about the Dexter books is that I wind up liking and rooting for a sociopath and murderer. How does he do that? Why would I like such an inhuman character so well?
I enjoyed the story very much and look forward to the next book in the series as I work my way through it.
The story was fantastic. Raylan goes to Italy. Another layer of Elmore Leonard's complex character has been revealed. I really enjoyed the short book. The narrator was so-so. He has a boring voice, and doesn't do Eastern Kentucky very well.
Everything but the narrator.
less cloak and dagger. less political maneuvering.
His melodramatic style is the only thing that made it bearable.
There has to be a better story than the machinations of a futuristic version of the Roman Catholic Church.
