    Across America, a mysterious pathogen transforms ordinary people into raging killers, psychopaths driven by a terrifying, alien agenda. The human race fights back, yet after every battle the disease responds, adapts, using sophisticated strategies and brilliant ruses to fool its pursuers. The only possible explanation: the epidemic is driven not by evolution but by some malevolent intelligence.

    Overall

    Great theme, but the character and plot development and did not meet expectations. I was disappointed.

    Twelve American tourists join an art expedition that begins in the Himalayan foothills of China - dubbed the true Shangri-La - and heads south into the jungles of Burma. But after the mysterious death of their tour leader, the carefully laid plans fall apart, and disharmony breaks out among the pleasure-seekers.

    Overall

    Wasted almost four hours of my life, hoping this story would improve. By the time I finally gave up I was completely ambivalent regarding the fate of any of the characters. Don't waste your points.

    In this terrifying and hilarious prequel, we witness the genesis of the zombie plague in early 19th-century England. We watch Elizabeth Bennet evolve from a nave young teenager into a savage slayer of the undead. We laugh as she begins her first clumsy training with nunchucks and katana swords and cry when her first blush with romance goes tragically awry.

    Dawn says: "Fantastic Narrator for a Fun Story!"
    "Great. . . exceeded expectations!"
    Overall

    I was very skeptical that Pride and Prejudice and zombies could possibly be mixed with any coherent style, but the author pulled it off. Great narration too. Very entertaining, would recommend.

    In 1988, 43-year-old Jeff Winston died of a heart attack. But then he awoke, and it was 1963; Jeff was 18 all over again, his memory of the next two decades intact. This time around, Jeff would gain all the power and wealth he never had before. This time around he'd know how to do it right. Until next time.

    Jonathon says: "Entertaining and more than worth the price!!"
    "I Loved It!"
    Overall

    Great story. To be able to go back and do it all again, and again. . loves lost, found, and lost again. Great parallels to real life lessons in this story. Very moving, a great listen.
