    You can't kill the dead! Like any good monster, the zombie has proven to be ever-evolving, monumentally mutable, and open to seemingly endless imaginative interpretations: the thralls of voodoo sorcerers, George Romero's living dead, societal symbols, dancing thrillers, viral victims, reanimated ramblers, video-gaming targets, post-apocalyptic permutations, shuffling sidekicks, literary mash-ups, the comedic, and, yes, even the romantic.

    What made the experience of listening to Zombies the most enjoyable?

    I am a zombie lover for most of my life. The stories with different readers make a personal narrative of the feelings and emotions one would attribute to a horrifying, unbelievable and extremely dangerous nightmare scenario. Even the dark comedy of some tales are believable if the dead truly rose and humanity had to except this as fact. I am also a what next kind of guy. I want to know about everything, the stories have ended but the what next remains. I like WWZ because it covers it all and then I yearn for more. I am just that way who do they, what happens if, what next reader. The Walking Dead series is one of my favorite Graphic Novels because this question is answered. what makes this enjoyable to me is that I can find authors who have continued their work into full developed stories that open new lines of possibilities for the answers I always find on the last page :-)


    If you’ve listened to books by the authors before, how does this one compare?

    some compared very well. some I had never heard of, some stories like thinking talking sexually frustrated Zombies make me cringe.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    couldn't tell ya but the first 2 guys and their Idea that they could dope the zombies away was very enjoyable


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    the moment in max brooks when they discussed the last tank on the rebuilt wall of china


    Any additional comments?

    I think more full cast series of books similar to the WWZ book but done on a real time bases the rumors, the out breaks the panic the survival the failures, the re-org, the offensive. a series that was "were alive" podcast with the max brooks WWZ book that made a series over the entire war. use several characters, maybe a group, a loner a family, even a criminal or some such person that does declare himself king. and use the worlds stories. you could release a couple hour audio book every month and as long as you kept the characters interesting, struggling, and rotated from one or two story lines every episode or so you would have a fan base. that's what I was looking for when i bought this. I was pleased with this book, just wanted more from it.

    After nearly four years, the zombie epidemic has almost burnt itself out. Gus' new life on a communal farm is peaceful. The daily routine of policing the fields is rarely disrupted by straying undead. His drinking binges are over. Long days have thrown time over the memories of Annapolis. But this will all change.

    Survivors is the all-new soul-shattering climax to the postapocalyptic trilogy, featuring a deadly virus, military action, global devastation - and zombies. A lot can change in three months: Wars can be decided, nations can be forged...or entire species can be brought to the brink of annihilation. The Morningstar Virus, an incredibly virulent disease, has swept the face of the planet, infecting billions. The infected hosts rampage, attacking anything that remains uninfected.

    Love this series. A wonderful set of books. Great performance and narration, had buy each book the one after the other because I had to know how it ended. I hope did the author and narrator collaborate in the future. recommended highly

    From the Book of Revelation to The Road Warrior, from A Canticle for Leibowitz to The Road, storytellers have long imagined the end of the world, weaving eschatological tales of catastrophe, chaos, and calamity. In doing so, these visionary authors have addressed one of the most challenging and enduring themes of imaginative fiction: The nature of life in the aftermath of total societal collapse.

    Sunny Webb says: "Certainly more good than bad here."
    "Collections are hit and miss."

    The book had some real awesome shorts and some real duds. I was torn on ★ rating. overall it was so up and down I couldn't hate it nor love it. Narration was also all over. I would say don't waste a copy edit and if you can buy for less than a 5 spot.
