Did you ever see a horror movie where the kids are fleeing the swamp and every path they take leads them deeper and deeper into the abyss. From the first chapter on I felt that way and just when I felt I knew the plot I would step off the path and into black water. I really did enjoy this story and look forward to more from the writer
Very enlightening and entertaining. As a fiction junkie it was refreshing to see non fiction can still entertain me. This just isn't a story of Manhattan it is a story of American and what we thought we knew. JOB WELL DONE.
It's has taken me a long time to stew over this book and now that I have twice listened to it I think it is even more disturbing and worth the listen. The performance was flawless. Is it possible to create a world so alien to our own and then project the listener into that world without leaving us lost? Paolo makes me feel like I had been there and Jonathan reminds me of the sites and sounds. More than a credit well spend it was time well spent.
This is one of the strange books that doesn't really make the jump to horror or comedy much less back again. Would I listen to it again...NO. Was it worth a credit...Maybe. I did recommend it to my wife and she thought it was as cornball as I did. I still don't think it was zombie book but more of soap opera with a zombies tossed in to add drama.
I loved the book and loved the narration but since I multitask while listening I struggled with this one. The jumping around from present to past and back all in the same thought made a typical story untypical. Most of the secondary characters beg for their stories to be told so can we look forward to a prequel or sequel?
The book was well written and I can't wait for the second one but I am hoping the Narrator will take the hint not to be so shrill when the action picks up. Ilsa Bick did a wonderful job with the story line. As a fan of apocalypse books this one has great twist on the theme.
