Who would have thought that combining zombie fiction with super hero fiction would be such a successful combination. Two great tastes, but who would have thought that they would taste great together. A very entertaining listen. Peter Clines is an author to watch.
This has to made it into my personal top ten list of favorite listens. The story is great and being a child of the 80's, there was a lot of references that I could relate to from my younger years. The story and narration were excellent and kept me thoroughly entertained through the entire novel.
I enjoyed the novel, but I cannot say that I looked forward to the next stretch that I was going to listen to. His best novel of all time (for me) was "Old Mans War". It is worth a listen if your que is low.
I have been a subscriber to Audible for years, and it is rare to find a novel this entertaining. I have to say that it has been one of my favorite reads in quite some time. The humor (yes you can actually have some humor in zombie fiction) had me laughing often. I am going to be following Mr. Tufo's work after my introduction through this novel.
When multiple narrators work on a novel it can improve an experience tremendously. But when you have the strength of great actors performing the narration, you are in for a treat. Max Brooks has the chops to write fiction, especially in this genre. The performances by the narrators draw you into this book further than most. The only reason I gave the story 4 stars, was due to it being the abridged version. I would buy this novel again, if Max were to release the unabridged version for sure. This is one of my top ten audio books of all time.
