For those who get bored of the constant Romero-Esq story lines this is probably the audiobook for you. The performance and narration was well done as much as the story line would allow for it (assuming read in scarey zombie voice was in their scripts). There were a multitude of zombie type plots - Haitian Zombies, Beautiful Zombies, Zombie High School drama, Zombie love stories etc. This however did not fulfill my Zombie fiction craving.
"Twisted" by Kevin Veale, the first story in the collection did offer an interesting twist without sacrificing the story. I liked the idea that Zombies hunted us via our brain waves and one could allude detection by remaining incredibly intoxicated. The forced intoxication of others made this story all the more unsettling. I'll be looking for more work by this author.
Did not feel like a Romero rip off. The author took the time to develop the antagonists to the point that you were rooting for the zombies to rip their throats out. Though frustrating, the vehemence in which characters tried to cling to normality in a post apocalyptic world seems realistically applicable.
I just didn't get the same emphasis of the Christian Propaganda that some reviewers wrote about. Having actually traveled and hiked in some of the areas mentioned in the book if the author didn't have the characters resort to prayer in their times of need I would have found it poorly researched. But being of an alternative faith and living in the bible belt I may have developed a thicker skin for such things.
It was a good story, I found the main character's understanding of military and political history enriching and applicable to the plot. It was a honorable attempt to bring attention to a valid danger that is not well understood or represented accurately in our entertainment media.
