    Following in the footsteps of the New York Times best-selling graphic novels and the record-breaking new television show, this debut novel in a trilogy of original Walking Dead books chronicles the back story of the comic book series greatest villain, The Governor.

    Where does The Walking Dead: Rise of The Governor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I truly loved this book. I don't care what anyone else says.I was interested in the story about this character. I was surprised how it ended. Way different then I expected. This book kept my interest just as well as a book I would read myself. I was thrilled with the narrator chosen for this book. His version of the voices were great and I don't think it would have come across this way if it was someone else. Fred is perfect for this story. And because of this I would truly want to listen to more books that he has read.


    What other book might you compare The Walking Dead: Rise of The Governor to and why?

    I've been on the zombie kicked for many years now. Way before "The Walking Dead" TV show came out. I'm a fan of the TWD comics that started off the TV show. Because of this I could say I would compare this book to many of the other zombie books I've read. But because of Fred it was so great to listen to and I wanted to keep going and not "put it down".


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All of the book was my fav but the best was the end (which I won't give out for those who've not read it yet) when Brian introduced himself.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES...it was so difficult to stop ready when I was sleepy or have something to do..it took me a week to listen to it for these reasons when it should have taken one day.


    Any additional comments?

    I became a member of Audible because I'm disabled now and sitting around all the time so i'm always reading and it's nice to just liten once in awhile...I've always reading the descriptions and trying to find great books to listen too. I am on a big zombie kick right now so that's how I roll at the minute...

    OK just finished the 3rd book of the series. another winner. so loved the story and the way it ended. Again I love the way Jay reads a story! I totally can get into those voices in my head to sound like the people I picture. I truly enjoyed this series and hope J.L. Bourne comes up with more zombies stories for Jay to read!

    The first book of Day by Day Armageddon took us deep into the mind of a military officer and survivor as he made a New Year's resolution to start keeping a journal. The man kept his resolution and brought to us the fall of humanity, day by day. We see the man transition from the life that you and I live to the prospect of fighting for his very survival against the overwhelming hordes of the dead. We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve.

    I LOVED the way Jay reads these books! He has a nice deep voice and when he changes it to do a "diff" person I totally feel that I'm hearing someone else. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and I am sure I will find myself listening to this again after I get thru the rest of the books in my library.

    In your hands is the handwritten journal depicting one man's struggle for survival. Trapped in the midst of global disaster, he must make decisions; choices that ultimately mean life, or the eternal curse to walk as one of them. Enter, if you will, into the world of the undead.

    What made the experience of listening to Day By Day Armageddon the most enjoyable?

    The narrator's voice is easy to listen to. He does a great job of sounding like other people in the story. I luv all the zombie stories so I bought this just because. but I truly enjoyed the entire story. I like listening to how the people are going to get away from the zombies and how their "adventure" goes. It's like having a TV in my mind while I'm listening to the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    I like listening to books because I'm disabled so sitting here all day long doing nothing is usually boring. One can only watch so much TV. so I like lying here listening to the stories as I can close my eyes and just picture all the action in my mind. It sure does give me an adventure I would never be able to go on by myself! I luv audible.com for all the "vacations" it takes me on!

    Where does The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    this is a great book! I love Robert Kirkman's Walking Dead comic series so when the TV show came out it was a no brainer. Being that the comics & TV show are different from each other in some ways it was nice to know both stories. Then these 2 books came out about the governor. I thought they both were great! The story line doesn't include anything from the TV show which is nice because now the listener gets to hear how one of the characters came about. I truly enjoyed it.

    Fred is the perfect voice for this book/series! He can make himself sound like so many different people. It was hard to believe it was one guy reading the story! I am going to look for his other work too. I'm sure those books will be just as great!

    Cannot wait for more to come out in this series. I sure hope there will be more!!

  • Chariots of the Gods

    Erich von Däniken's Chariots of the Gods is a work of monumental importance---the first book to introduce the shocking theory that ancient Earth was visited by aliens. This world-famous best seller has withstood the test of time, inspiring countless books and films, including the author's own popular sequel, The Eye of the Sphinx.

    Would you listen to Chariots of the Gods again? Why?

    Yes, because I often listened when I couldn't sleep & I'm sure I missed stuff here & there so I will listen to it again.


    What other book might you compare Chariots of the Gods to and why?

    O the only books that I've read or am reading/listening to are Erich's other books...he does often mention one in another.


    What does William Dufris bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I personally did not think the narrator was as good as if Erich read it to us. The speed I like to listen to did not do this narrator any favors and moving it down a notch made it too slow for me to listen to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I cannot say there was any one moment that struck me differently.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy listening to books on audible. sometimes the narrator doesn't do it for me and this is one of those times. As I've seen many interviews with Erich, I truly love his excitement and how he speaks about his work. I think he would have been a much better story teller and I feel that way for all his books.

    "Something here really stinks to high heaven," writes Erich von Däniken. "In Twilight of the Gods," says von Däniken, "I document precisely what it was that left the first visitors breathless as they stood before the mighty stone blocks some 400 years ago. I will show you what archeologists discovered hundreds of years ago and demonstrate how much has been destroyed over the centuries. Intentionally.

    I'm working my way though all of Erich's books...I find the concepts very interesting..Yes U could say I'm a believer.
