    The second wave of the plague has struck with a brutal vengeance and a full-on zombie apocalypse has spread throughout every corner of the world. Abandoned by her father, Dar has managed to set up a camp in the Boston Common. Surrounded by hordes of ravenous zombies, one person living inside the camp holds the key to their survival. A few lucky people on Earth have developed a mysterious immunity from the plague. Known as ghosts, they are prized for their ability to walk among the dead and gather food and supplies without fear.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    a different book and a different narrator


    Would you ever listen to anything by Joseph Souza again?

    probably not, this was high school level material. Needed editing, bad.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He read his part word by word. Was very wooden, did not improvise with contractions, his pace did not change. Hard to tell who was saying what, as they all had the same voices.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    What a waste of money and time. Just could not go on, I did not care about any of the one dimensional characters, I hope they all die.


    Any additional comments?

    How was this made into an audiobook? I would not have used this book for a doorstop.

    Nine years ago, Steve Clarke was just a teenage boy in love with the girl of his dreams. Then a freak chemical spill transformed him into Reaver, the man whose super-powerful fists can literally take a year off a bad guy’s life. Days ago, he found himself at the mercy of his archnemesis, Octagon, and a whole crew of fiendish super-villains, who gave him two weeks to settle his affairs - and prepare to die. Now, after years of extraordinary adventures and crushing tragedies, the world’s greatest hero is returning to where it all began in search of the boy he once was...and the girl he never forgot.

    What did you love best about Prepare to Die!?

    An R rated super hero story with some unique characters, made me laugh numerous times. This book was meant for an audio book.

    Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics. But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills. Nobody fights the Epics...nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them. And David wants in. He wants Steelheart - the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David's father.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Steelheart to be better than the print version?

    Did not read it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Steelheart?

    I do not give spoilers - this book needs to be read or listened to.


    Which character – as performed by Macleod Andrews – was your favorite?

    Prof


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

    Yes, but it does allow you to chill out for a little bit to take a break before the 1.5 hour finale, which is unusual, but was appreciated. Gave me a day to savor the story and look forward to the ending, really rare in a superhero book.


    Any additional comments?

    This is right up there with Peter Clines "EX-HEROES" as my all-time favorite non-DC, non-Marvel superhero stories.

    It was worth the money.
