    Six months ago, the world ended. The Baugh Contagion swept across the planet. Its victims were left twitching, adrenalized cannibals that quickly became know as Junkies. Civilization crumbled as people created isolated safe havens to hide from the infected... and the possibly infected. Now, as society nears a tipping point, lives will intersect and intertwine across two days in a desolate city.

    In a future world under attack from the undead, the powerful Church of Real Truth, in charge since the government fell, has sworn to reimburse citizens being harassed by the deceased. Consequently, there are many false claims of hauntings from those hoping to profit. Enter Chess Putnam, a fully-tattooed witch and freewheeling ghost hunter. She’s got a real talent for nailing human liars and banishing the wicked dead.

    This was a very enjoyable story, and the narrator was incredible! It was slightly predictable, and the "F" word was used in abundance... If you're sensitive to that kind of language, this book is probably not for you... But over all, the story drew me in. The author and narrator had me in the first chapter, which for me, rarely happens. This is one of those rare series I will buy all at once and listen to back-to-back. Usually I like to space them out so I don't get bored with the characters, but usually I don't bother writing reviews, either. It's a good "future earth" or "dystopian" or "urban fantasy" type story. Can't wait for my credits so I can get the next in the series!

    Returning to the territory he so brilliantly explored in his masterful New York Times best seller American Gods, the incomparable Neil Gaiman offers up a work of dazzling ingenuity, a kaleidoscopic journey deep into myth that is at once startling, terrifying, exhilarating, and fiercely funny, a true wonder of a novel that confirms Stephen King's glowing assessment of the author as "a treasure house of story, and we are lucky to have him."

    While it wasn't my favorite of Neil Gaiman's stories, still it was a story by Neil Gaiman and therefore very enjoyable. I loved the narrator, particularly when he voiced Spider. He continually reminded me of Eddie Murphy. My one complaint, which isn't really much of a complaint, is that his one voice for one of the elderly ladies hurt my ears when I was wearing headphones; it was just the right pitch.

    This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity.

    Mike Naka says: "bucket full of zombie juice"
    "The author must be a very twisted individual ."

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

    Yes, it was full of dark humor and sarcasm.


    What about Sean Runnette???s performance did you like?

    His voice is perfect for the main character, Mike. He has a very dry tone that perfectly compliments Mike's sarcasm.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked this one so much, I immediately bought the next and the next until I had bought (and listened to) all four that are available on audio. I wish I could find more to read that is similar.

    John Matthew has come a long way since he was found living among humans, his vampire nature unknown. Taken in by The Brotherhood, no one could guess what his true history was-or his true identity. Xhex has long steeled herself against the attraction to John Matthew. Until fate intervenes and she discovers that love, like destiny, is inevitable.

    Patsy G. says: "MMMMM WOW..."
    "I think I must be tired of the series"
    Overall

    This one was not so great. I had trouble finishing it and that's even with fast forwarding through the sex scenes.

    The plot jumped around between three or four different story lines and was not difficult to follow, but it wasn't enjoyable the way it kept skipping around. The characters of John Matthew and Xhex weren't true to their characters in previous novels at all. A reviewer on Amazon said, "Complicated subplots" and it's true.

    Jim Frangione is a decent narrator but there were HUGE gaps in time when he read and a few times I could hear the director or someone else in the background. That was actually kinda cool in a way though.

    I think I'm going to stop listening to this series now. It's just not enjoyable to me anymore.

    After a tragically short life as a stray mutt, Bailey is surprised to find himself reborn as a rambunctious golden-haired puppy. Bailey's search for his new life's meaning leads him into the loving arms of eight-year-old Ethan. During their countless adventures, Bailey joyously discovers how to be a good dog. But this life as a beloved family pet is not the end of Bailey's journey. Reborn as a puppy yet again, Bailey wonders, will he ever find his purpose?

    Blythe says: "Best dog book ever!"
    "By far, the best book I've ever read!"
    Overall

    Maybe it's because I have a good dog, but I thought this was a fantastic story. The narrator did such a fantastic job voicing the dog, I was completely engrossed. Well worth the credit and the time to listen to this beautiful tale.
