    Fifteen-year-old Benny Imura lives in a world infested with zombies where, when a kid turns 15, he must get a job to continue receiving food rations. Benny has no interest in the family business of zombie killing, but figures he doesn’t have much of a choice. He’s tried out a bunch of other jobs, and hasn’t found anything he likes. But as Benny starts training with his brother, he learns things about being human that he never expected.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I shied away from this book multiple times because I didn't think the idea of a 15 kid trying to avoid working in the family business sounded like a compelling zombie story.

    I was wrong.

    I finally gave in and listened.This story is just as much about zombies and the world after the dead rise, as it is about honor, bravery, evil, justice, love and family.

    What a refreshing take on the genre. Not only do we get hordes of Ramero-style lumbering zombies, but we are also treated to a story about right and wrong and having the strength to overcome fear and the status quo.

    Rot & Ruin didn't quite have me as soon as I started listening, but it had me pretty early on in the story. The work of the author and the narrator wove together to create a world in which it was quite believable that such things might be happening. That's not to say I didn't find faults with the book, I just don't think they impacted the overall experience enough to warrant mention.

    Check it out for yourselves.
