I started watching the Walking Dead on TV, and found it extremely compelling. So much so I started looking to see what Zombie books I might find interesting.
The Zombie Fallout books are really, really good. There are a couple of continuity issues early on that are easily forgivable considering the quality of the characters, the action, suspense, and everything else a good Zombie book should be.
The narration is also top-notch. The characters all have distinctive voices, in addition to personalities, and it’s very easy to follow.
The only problem is (as of this writing), it’s not finished!
Finish it, Mark. I need to know what happens next!
It's a story about a people we (in the West) don't hear about, and a culture we know nothing about. From that standpoint it's an important book.
Being a true story, however, there is a limit to the narrative, and that comes across fairly quickly in that the story becomes a succession of the same event happening over and over again. It's hard to escape because it's about a man doing the same thing every day from the beginning to the end of the book. He's travelling through a different culture, but there isn't a lot of variation in the culture of the people he meets during the journey.
The performance was good. Usually authors aren't the best narrators, but in this case Mr. Stewart was very easy to listen to.
Overall I'm glad I listened, but it got a little tedious towards the end.
