    It's the last weekend of summer break in the small town of Castor, and four teenage friends are about to attend the most popular end-of-summer high-school party in town… with a massive wave of mutated undead about to crash the party. It's The Breakfast Club meets Resident Evil as the teens of Castor fight to stay alive.

    Story

    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

    Nearly 40 years ago, a New York State Library archivist discovered 12,000 pages of extraordinary records from the original Dutch colony on Manhattan. After decades of painstaking translation, the documents became the primary source for this breathtaking history of early New York.

    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.

    Anderson Lake is a company man, AgriGen's Calorie Man in Thailand. Under cover as a factory manager, Anderson combs Bangkok's street markets in search of foodstuffs thought to be extinct, hoping to reap the bounty of history's lost calories. There, he encounters Emiko...Emiko is the Windup Girl, a strange and beautiful creature. One of the New People, Emiko is not human; instead, she is an engineered being, creche-grown and programmed to satisfy the decadent whims of a Kyoto businessman.

    Story

    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.

    The town of Lake Woebegotton, MN is a small town, filled with ordinary (yet above average) people, leading ordinary lives. Ordinary, that is, until the dead start coming back to life, with the intent to feast upon the living! Now this small town of above average citizens must overcome their petty rivalries and hidden secrets in order to survive an onslaught of the dead.

    Story

    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.

    In this wry take on the post-apocalyptic horror novel, a pandemic has devastated the planet. The plague has sorted humanity into two types: the uninfected and the infected, the living and the living dead. Now the plague is receding, and Americans are busy rebuild­ing civilization under orders from the provisional govern­ment based in Buffalo. Their top mission: the resettlement of Manhattan.

    Story

    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?

    An electromagnetic pulse flashes across the sky, destroying every electronic device and killing billions. Alex hiked into the woods to say good-bye to her dead parents and her personal demons. Now desperate to find out what happened after the pulse crushes her to the ground, Alex meets up with Tom, a young soldier, and Ellie, a girl whose grandfather was killed by the EMP. For this improvised family and the others who are spared, it's now a question of who can be trusted and who is no longer human.

    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.
