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 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.
This book was written too descriptive, if you could belive that. The Author kept using big words on mindless matters that clouded the storyline. Example : Solar flare: A solar flare is a sudden brightening observed over the Sun's surface or the solar limb, which is interpreted as a large energy release of up to 6 × 1025 joules of energy (about a sixth of the total energy output of the Sun each second or 160,000,000,000 megatons of TNT equivalent, over 25,000 times more energy than released from the impact of Comet Shoemaker–Levy 9 with Jupiter). They are mainly followed by a colossal coronal mass ejection also known as a CME. The flare ejects clouds of electrons, ions, and atoms through the corona of the sun into space. These clouds typically reach Earth a day or two after the event and so and so and so on...........Boring as can be....... Why not write more about the characters of the book than the rantings of a nerd topic go wild?
This is not a book,it read more like a research paper only a 2nd year intern would grade as he would just look at the 1st 2 and last 2 pages of the book to score!!
I would say that this novel would be a great cure for those suffering in (Insomnia), or sleeplessness, is an individual's reported sleeping difficulties. Yes a perfect answer for those in need!
AS i listen to this storyline and how this guy Mike Talbot , His life is a cross between AL Bundy luck from ( Married with Children) and Peter Griffin sense of humor from (Family Guy). there is alot of action and if it could go wrong for Mike in the story, It is predicatble it will!!!
But there is somekind of intervention keeping this guy and his family alive as all falls around them, but with a sick humor, they managle to pull it out and live for one more day! It is funny writtng and dialogue as you listen to this book and more of the series. Alot of the Guy code references are involed with this book, so you women may not catch the man humor of it. But you will enjoy it regardless as the witty writing will explaing the tough punchlines and historical referense.
This book starts off with a runaway girl falling into the role of a Green Rider and the adventure begins from that. Alot of twist and turns with the character as she must struggle to overcome what evil has throw at her.
Most of the storyline is predictable sorry to say and I never really felt the main character in the story as in dire need of dying when in the middle of a enemy ambush. I had a feeling of knowing the script before it was even said. So , I wouldn't recomend it to a friend as I have a lot more patience than most to continue listening to a mondane dialog as alot is said which makes no sense in this story and you know it is for book two benefit to make sense.
This is a very informative book on the wisdom of economics in a ruthless style. It is witty and very funny as the narrative is typical Ferengi greed at its best.
