    The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of 30 million souls, to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet.

    "This is great audio entertainment"
    Overall

    Out of the dozens of titles i have downloaded this last year I would have to rate this book as the best. Amazing readings from a great cast. This story is well written and flows very well. It is also a good length for me under 7 hours. I like shorter books. This book is not as much of a 'zombie horror' as a 'fall of civilization' story. I highly recommend it.

    Story
    (27)

    As his family splinters, worlds collide, and the police block all routes out of town, Nick Twisp must cope with economic deprivation, homelessness, the gulag of the public schools, a competitive Type-A father, murderous canines (in triplicate), and an inconvenient hair trigger on his erectile response, all while vying ardently for the affections of the beauteous Sheeni Saunders, teenage goddess and ultimate intellectual goad. He's smart, he's horny, he's resourceful, and he's on the loose.

    "twisted story of youth - audio is butchered"
    Overall

    Past the butchered editing from the CD recording to the audible file - its a very funny story and the narrator does a good job. Its dark in places, and can be twisted. The character and story feel like 'fear and loathing in las vegas'. But, replace the drugs with sex and replace hunter with a 14 year old boy.

    Very funny book - but this audiobook is missing large chunks. I think there were chapters out of order. At one chapter beginning it announced it was CD 9. At the end of many chapters the recording is cut in mid sentence. And the worst part of this, im pretty sure there are multiple chapters missing in the end. Talking to my wife who read the book, there is a lot missing - no closure as to how Nick's life turns out in this audio version.

    My advice - if you like dark and twisted tales of a sexed crazed youth, get this book. but, not this version. you will miss a lot due to poor audio editing. It really was butchered when it was formatted for audible from CDs.
