    When Joe Ledger and Echo Team rescue a group of American college kids held hostage in Iran, the Iranian government then asks them to help find six nuclear bombs planted in the Mideast oil fields. These stolen WMDs will lead Joe and Echo Team into hidden vaults of forbidden knowledge, mass-murder, betrayal, and a brotherhood of genetically-engineered killers with a thirst for blood.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Assassin's Code to be better than the print version?

    Dunno


    What did you like best about this story?

    Maberry has a fun, playful style of writing that manages to keep me wanting to hear more and more. Ledger is such a an unrealistic character that he almost becomes surreal in the story. Maberry has managed to keep Ledger and echo team fresh and interesting from Patient Zero through Assassin's Code through cleaver writing and Ledgers pizzazz sense of humor.


    What does Ray Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I enjoy Ray Porter's reading style for these military style fiction books. I wonder why he does not partake in more of these types of books.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you for the ride Jonathan Maberry!

    The first book of Day by Day Armageddon took us deep into the mind of a military officer and survivor as he made a New Year's resolution to start keeping a journal. The man kept his resolution and brought to us the fall of humanity, day by day. We see the man transition from the life that you and I live to the prospect of fighting for his very survival against the overwhelming hordes of the dead. We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve.

    Beyond exile is a continuation to Day by Day Armageddon. It kept me interested and wanting to hear what would happen next. It did get a little too mental sometimes in that it would get too engrossed in character thought process. With that, I do look forward to book 3.

    Francis Sherman and Anna Demilio want only a vaccine, but to find it, they must cross a countryside in ruins, dodging not only the infected, but also the lawless living. The bulk of the storm has passed over the world, leaving echoing thunder and softly drifting ashes. But for the survivors, the peril remains, and the search for a cure is just beginning.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Thunder and Ashes to be better than the print version?

    Dunno, I have not read this book.


    What other book might you compare Thunder and Ashes to and why?

    Craig Dilouie's Tooth and Nail comes to mind. They both had a military spin with the infected dining on the non infected. Thunder and ashes is a true zombie book as the walking dead are within where tooth and nail has infected folks running around chomping on the non infected.


    Have you listened to any of Oliver Wyman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Book 1


    Any additional comments?

    This book was equally as fun as book 1. I am looking forward to book 3.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Killing Floor?

    Really? It's a zombie book!

    No


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, but I don't want to listen to any book in one sitting. I still enjoyed listening.

    This was my third Craig Dilouie book and I have enjoyed all of them thoroughly. I may have to try a Dilouie no zombie book next.

    In your hands is the handwritten journal depicting one man's struggle for survival. Trapped in the midst of global disaster, he must make decisions; choices that ultimately mean life, or the eternal curse to walk as one of them. Enter, if you will, into the world of the undead.

    What did you love best about Day By Day Armageddon?

    I really enjoyed the dairy style read of this book. I gave the impression of being on scene with the character.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There was only one character since the story is read in first person dairy style. Everyone is background.


    What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

    I think he did well as reading in military jargon, however, I'm partial to that style.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The reader balanced the gore and lighter side of the story well.


    Any additional comments?

    Very fun audio book. Can't wait the read the rest of the series.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The main character never seemed to grow until the last 25% of the book. The mantra never improved either. I wanted to enjoy this book because I enjoyed the previous books so much, however, it felt like Friday the 13th part 5....more of the same. It felt like the author rushed the book through.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Mark Tufo? Why or why not?

    Yes, because I enjoyed all Zombie Fallouts except this one. I finished it because I wanted closure on the series.


    What three words best describe Sean Runnette’s voice?

    Noreastern twang indeed!


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I would but that means nothing regarding quality. I see ALL zombie movies.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Infection to be better than the print version?

    The book may be slightly better than the audio mostly because the reader tends to make the strong women sound somewhat weak. This detracts from the overall strength of the survivors in the book. Otherwise, the audio version is decent.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the camaraderie of the survivors and the scary infected. They really are scary without the gory detail. Well done.


    What about Peter Ganim’s performance did you like?

    Overall, I enjoyed the tone of the reader with the exception of his approach towards the female leadership. They appear to be weak and uninteresting due to his tone.


    Any additional comments?

    Fun book. Well done.
