    When Cheryl and her fiancé, a soldier who has just gotten back from Afghanistan, are on their way back to Denver after a reunion camping trip in the mountains, she hears that an epidemic has spread like wildfire. She has no idea that just a few hours later her life will be threatened by hoards of "Eaters", the infected whose lust for rotten food quickly turns to an insatiable desire for human flesh once their corpses are reanimated. Cheryl witnesses the best and worst of human nature as she and a group of refugees struggle to stay alive.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This book focus way too much on the details of the chase. I know a girl being chased down by monsters, constaintly may sound suspense full but after the fourth time you realize that it is most unlikely that the main character will be killed. So you end up just listening to the author as she writes about how inch by inch the Zombie moves towards the main character.
    The story lacks a basic flow or a steady process. Even choas can be described in a orderly fashion. This would just happen without any real explaination or rational, which caused me to question the thought process of this story. There were times when the Zombies would just appear for no reason other then to give the reader a sense of drama. Lets take for example when they were in the ISOLATED cabin in the woods. It only took a day and there were around a hundred of zombies at their place trying to get to them. That does not make sense and seems more like a plot hole.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I am waiting for the last book in the Morningstar Strain series to go autobook.


    Did Heather Jane Hogan do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Jane did fine, it is not her fault that the book is under par.


    What character would you cut from Eaters?

    The main character.

    At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy's instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea's forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors from both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?

    Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

    "Enjoyed it very much"
    Overall

    I had a good time with this one. This book was a very nice combination of Super heroes and Zombies. I have read all of Kirkman's Marvel Zombies and wished that story would have been similar to this one.
