This book was written from the perspective of a lawyer in Europe. While lawyers are sharks in the court room, they are pansies in the wilderness. This guy is a first rate pansy. If you’ve read ANY other zombie books, this one (in my opinion) makes the main character seem like a real wimp. Buck up man! These things are out to kill you! Sheesh, snap out of this fairy tale land of thinking people are going to come to your rescue (as the character so aptly thought, on many occasions)…. Essentially, the main character is a wimp.
The most interesting aspect of the story was the fact that this guy cried a lot about how he was alone.......Common, really. Oh, and before people start thinking that I'm being too hard on the guy....I'm a combat vet who has see the bodies torn to pieces and I've been alone before in a war. Did I cry, no. I bucked up and figured out a what to do about it.
Overall, Nick did a good job of getting into the character's state of mind.
NO....well, actually. It did inspire me to write a review about this lame book. Again, I must state, that if anybody has already listened to any other Zombie book, this one will bore you right out of your mind. It was actually quite sad.
If you want a real thriller, listen to some REALLY great zombie books; listen to these: Beyond Exile, then Day By Day (author J.L.Bourne). Another series that has some wild events is the Joe Ledger series by Jonathan Maberry. I must state that if you listen to these, be sure and listen to them in sequence, book 1 and on.
Good Zombie book with a few twists
at this point, none. With the mutant superheros, such as Zap, there doesn't seem to be much of a comparison. However, I really did like the fact that St. George was holding back on the soldiers....that was cool when he really let em have it.
Yup. In fact, I found myself wanting to listen to it while I was working on my car in the garage. Which is normally a distraction for me, but I was so into the book I needed to know what was happening next.
Great Zombie book with a few twists of the mutant population. The background on each mutant in the story was a little excessive, but you got a good idea of the characters personality, and how they ended up fulfilling their role in the story. At first the story is a little slow to catch on, but about half way through, it picks up and gets pretty darned exciting.
This book was simply AWESOME! Being a Combat Vet myself, I found that I could resonate with Joe and his team. Get the mission done, no matter what. Towards the end the story began shifting from one scene to the next, it was harrowing.
Joe was definitely my favorite character, however Bunny was a close second. His comments of "it gets worse sir" had me laughing out loud, thinking back to my own military days and standing in a line-up talking to the D.I.
I've never listened to Ray Porter before this. I thought Scott Brick was good, but Ray take the inflection to a whole new level. It seems like Ray really knows these characters and puts this entire thought process into the performance. I'm really impressed by Ray's command of the story line, his ability to portray a character's emotions and thought process. Very impressive job by Ray Porter.
No extreme reaction, but I really liked the story line. I felt like I was right there with Joe and Echo Team or rather I wanted to be there kicking some Zombie buts...
An awesome story line read by an awesome story reader. This is a must have book!
Scott Brick always does an excellent job of narrating, however this time around, I think he could have done a little better with the voices. Maybe, since I've listened to so many other novels of his narration, I was expecting a little more. Either way, the store was simply awesome and full of twists and turns. Yes, this is a fictional story, but WOW, when driving to work I found it hard to stop the story so I could actually go into work when I arrived.
Eli was by far my favorite character. His impassive personality betrayed nothing of his thoughts, and he was always prepared.....to a fault of an overinflated ego....
The most intense scene for me was when the rock was being loaded on the ship. This was nothing short of a miracle, but yet Eli had it all under control, while myself and the rest of the crew were in near panic....
The Ice limit was an excellent name for this book.
While this may be an older story, it has lost none of its potency in thriller action and surprise. I've listened to the entire Pendergast collection by PrestonChild, and the Ice Limit is right up there along these top novels, if not nearly at the top. This is one Audio-Book I blazed through because it was not captivating.
This is a great book! Albeit, its a bit short, but the story is great and it keeps your attention.
Accurate information about what would happen should the power go out in the U.S.
Great book, just wish it was longer.
