The End ranks right up near the top. As a series, this has to be one of my top three favorites.
It is a good old fashioned zombie tail with an interesting twist. I love the character interactions. I am completely drawn into this story.
I have only listened to Sean's work on this series. It is spot on as usual. He really has a great ability to bring the story and characters to life for me.
There are several parts that really made me laugh out loud. Remember this line "God has a 50 cal? F***ing fantastic". That one about put me into a ditch as I was driving!
As much as I love to see a good ending to a series, I am glad this one is continuing for a few more books as I am really into it. Get these books!
For me it was not time well spent. I just couldn't get into the flow of the book. I was never drawn into the story.
Being written in the present tense just did nothing for me. It also seemed to jump around and I had a hard time staying interested because of that. I guess I am a good old fashioned past tense kind of story guy. lol
For me he did not. It just seemed to meld from one to the other and I had trouble recalling who was who and what their back story was.
For me it was not. Again, I am no judge of what makes up a good story. I can only go by what I can or can not get into. As I stated above, I could never get drawn into this book. I don't know if it was the narrator, who has an amazing voice but it just didn't seem to work well for me in this instance for some reason, or if it was the present tense writing or what it was.
I will give this book another shot down the rode and see if I can get into it then.
I would listen to it again. The story is fantastic. Not your typical zombie story as it turns out. The narration is great as well. Sean has a way of dragging me into the story and keeping me there.
There is no one memorable moment for me. It is a series of fun little moments that keep me going.
I have only heard him on this series and his work is spot on for this genre. I need to see what other work he has done and see how that works out as well.
This whole series is one that makes me want to listen to it all in one sitting and then some!
Get this series. I highly recommend it.
The narration was fantastic.
He gives a life to the main character that I quite possibly would have interpreted differently had I just read it. I enjoyed his take on the eldest Talbot.
Nothing especially moving, but never really a down moment for me in this book.
Definitely worth the listen!
I had a very hard time getting into this book which is odd because the narration was excellent and it was a different take on the same old zombie tale. I can't quite put my finger on why it didn't work well for me.
I loved the narration and voice acting.
The voices and accents were excellent.
So many people loved this, so I gave it a try. It was not quite my cup of tea apparently. I would still give it a listen as I am but one person who didn't love it in a sea of those who did.
Nailbiting, exciting, fantastic.
I really enjoyed the part of the story when he has to make it back to the compound after, well I don't want to spoil anything so I will just say after a bit of bad luck occurs.
It was indeed!
A fitting book 2 for a great series!
It was a different take on another zombie story. Don't get me wrong, I love zombie stories. It is nice to have a different take though.
I liked the fact that the story was basically a bunch of journal entries. It was a bit odd at first, and perhaps a bit disjointed until I got used to it. I quickly grew to love it though.
This is going to sound weird being that this is a zombie book, but I found his voice to be very "homey" and comforting.
I didn't have any extreme reactions. There were parts that had me chuckling for sure though.
One of the better books I have listened to so far. Highly recommended.
In a small way it reminded me of the Showtime series Dexter. Mainly in the main character. He feels nothing, but at times he seems to be developing the ability to feel. I found myself pulling for him to "become normal". That helped add to the zombie part of the story.
It kept me entertained.
I have not listened to Kevin's performances before so I can not compare. I did enjoy his performance in this book.
No one moment moved me. As I stated earlier, the continued "almost" emotional growth of the main character kept me tied to him.
This book is definitely worth a listen.
