Wow, I listened to this book for about the first four hours and then began to realize that this is not what I expected. This is what we waited 2 years for? I can't believe at all this is the same Author who wrote the 1st two books which are among one of my favorites in Zombie culture titles. I loved the series and told all my friends how this one series was an all night scary listen! But this book was not the same timeline format as the first two successful books.
This storyline jumps like a cat dancing on a hot plate as I was back and forth trying to figure out what and why did he bring in new characters and ignore the pre-established ones we loved and cared about. The name Kill as a character said it all as I groaned as bad as the zombie's moaning in the story. Why and how he made the main character act like a whinney B_tch is unforgivable to start and how predictable it played out was no surprise. I have to believe this was a paycheck to the writer as there was no effort put into this book.
How and why The Author changed the format was bad advice, maybe because he was on deployment most of these years, it may have distracted his focus. I would have gladly waited another year for a more suspenseful type story just like the first two books were written.
I know this is a harsh review but I really feel let down as a reader and fan of the series.
I would recomend people to just pass on this version and hope there is another creative author that could do a timeline Zombie tale.
I have no doubt this is one of the best series out there on the market! Phil has given us a fun and very entertaining character who you really care about and is not the typical one sided projection you get with some of these types of series. I do admire how every time I have written to the author of this series, he respond back right away and is very positive with his comments. That tells me it is more than a job for him and he does have very funny monthly posting. So I would recommend you subscribe to him and find out what in the future with his writings. This narrator is one of the best also as he brings the words to life and they both make a great team! Thanks for a great series!!!
Its worth your time to listen as I enjoy every minute of it! As I have kisten to all four books in the series, it keep me well entertained . Adrian trhe main character has a funny sense of humor as he see the world as horrible and yet humourous as he can comment on it. A typical guys view on how bad and how to make the most of it, without hurting his fellow man. You will jump at this series and end up wanting more!
I heard this book back a few years on cassette and loved the storyline as it was a good story. When it came to audiobook , I finally retired the cassette and purchase it just to have again and have no regrets as it is one of my favorite Sci-fi books ever. Thanks Ron Hubbard
Nice series as it goes and I love the fact that this writer does not sort to magic and time travel to fix the storyline. He really puts some though into the book and series as it flows in order from day to week as he has presented his characters.
I found the story "In General" very pleasent with some of the mix humor, gore,and actions of the people in the story. I found myself invested in the characters and had a good feel of the real emotional reactions to the events in their lives.
The main character ( Adrian ) is a typical dude of guys and having exmilitary,ex club bouncer , and a big size intimitdating guy with fighting skills. With all that I described the most important thing about ( Adrian ) is that he turns out to be a down to earth nice guy ,as you learn to know him over the time you listen about his thoughts as he goes day to day in his journal entries. The books only faults is that it goes side track with other non important characters lives and gives a account of how they dealt with the moment the SHTF as the zombies arrose. This made me want to skip forward on the story track to my main guy (Adrian) journal accounts as I knew this is the meat and potatoes of the story.
You will not be dissapointed to drop a credit on this one as this Zombie storyline is fun and has a good flow with the narrator.
The truth of the matter is the storyline is of a desperate captain who loss his world and must need the resources of a corrupt world to regain working status.
Storyline is nice I enjoyed this book. I found the politics fascinating and I wonder how many laws have to be broken for good to prevail. This is worth a credit, well written and not bad narrated story. The story totally pulled me in, i enjoyed every minute and would buy into a second book if released.
This series is a great but as I listen away on the story line I became more and more confused. I have to confess that I am a great fan of zombie tales. This series goes way beyond the usual story and tells a fascinating possible future. I said it's finished for now, but I get the feeling this third book is nowhere near the ending I expected,
Not to say there was no action, but if you total the zombie fighting time all together in this book, I would give it about 40 minutes total. Then the book goes into a Spec ops tale with the legion and a even bigger foe and enemy countries on the horizon as the author hints at.
Now if I were to buy a Zombie tale book , wouldn't you expect a zombie story? Sorry to say I felt cheated and confused on where this tale went? If you purchase this book, don't be surprised you may just feel you read a Tom Clancy tale.
I listen to this book going into it with expectation simular to Monster Hunter and a story about fighting unknown creatures . The plot is more like a Nora Roberts romance novel of a 1/2 human /demon gene teenager who finally gets her freak on and makes it with a vampire for all sakes.
The story takes little turns or twist to keep me entertained and about 1/2 way through the book I was thinking to just get a refund for this dull setting. It never made any sense on how a 300 years vampire came across as a love starved idot in the plot and it all goes bad from there and it ends in a fizzy plot with never no clear bad guy or end of the world plot.
This is a good story with Eric who is s really easy going character and just happen to plan for the end of the world with his new buddy Gabe. It is a all out interesting story as Eric interacts with people better in a Zombie Apocalypse than before in a normal world. You will not be disappointed in this story.
