I am a huge huge fan of the tv show and this was just a great book(s) to feed my addiction!
Gives insight into the governor and just gives great food for the zombie hunger!
The story lost an awful lot by not having the right narrator. You could hear her breathing and swallowing and her voice was just droning.... I finished the book because the story was good by MY GOODNESS I couldn't wait to not have to hear her voice...
The story was enjoyable and I will keep up with the series. It was typical Nora Roberts- not a bad thing however. The narrator drove me nuts with all her yelling but when she wasn't yelling, I thought she was very good!
I decided to listen to the Shining since King is coming out with a follow up to the Shining later this month. What a great listen! If its been a while or if you haven't read it,DO! It captures your attention from the get go. Can't wait for the follow up!
Joe hill has a way of getting into your childhood brain and pushing those childhood fears! It's interesting to me that even though the narrator had a voice that I did not like at all, it added to the harsh environment of the story and I can't imagine anyone else giving voice to this. I was kept interested all the way through.
Where to begin- Zombie stories are my favorite. So needless to say, I've read many. While even though some zombie stories are predictable, I still thoroughly enjoy them. Now Septic Zombie is completely original! A ballerina zombie? How original! Rock star zombie? Brilliant! This young lady ( she's SEVEN ?!?!!!) has talent and she will be on MY watch list.
Anyone care to start a fan club :)
I am a huge fan of post apocalyptic zombie books so I am always looking for something in that genre and while I love maberry, I just didn't like this one as much.
I was immediately swept into the story. First, the narration was fabulous. His accent(s) are beautiful and his cadence is just mind lulling. I was impressed.
The story is funny at times and charming. Even the "sad" times were done in a way that added a bit of humor as to take any trace of sting away. I did NOT want this book to end.
I read this book long ago and also saw the movie. I will say that this story is so much more I depth than the movie obviously. Do not pass this book up just because you saw the movie. This story was just a very well done story that moves through decades and just sweeps you along. I hated to have it end..
This is a beautifully written story. You very much get inside the character's head. The very brief "love scene" is important to the story and so beautifully written out. Not crude or graphic in the least. I would absolutely read something written by this author again.
