Stop the flashbacks thats seem to come out of nowhere and have nothing to do with the story.
Stop the flippin flash backs!!!!!
Kind of... honestly i just stumbled on the series and listened straight through from 1 to 5. I pent close to a week of listening to this series and felt like tufo phoned this one in. There are descent moments in the book but thats all.
I felt totally ripped off with this book in the series. It was like one long flashback filled with drunken stupiers and drug usage. Not that there is anything wrong with those stories but if thats what i wanted to listen to i would talk to some college kids for free, NOT pay money for a zombie book. If the flashbacks had anything at all to do with the plot i would understand but at time i found myself rewinding the track to see if i stroked out for a minute and missed something that lead us to that flashback.
The ending was horrible... i sincerely hope tufo is going somewhere with this;. Like mike comes back with super powers (or meets with the medicine man on the other side with some way of killing elisa) also what the hell was up with paul being eaten alive by cats?????? Really, in a world filled with zombies, pack dogs, crazy survivors, vampires, and god knows what else... he gets killed by a pack of house cats?????? Terrible.....
Yes, but I was highly disappointed with this one. I know Bourne was deployed when he wrote some of this, and having been deployed myself I understand why he might have rushed the end. I would have rather waited a few more weeks or months even for a better story.
Not changed his mode of story telling.
Snyder does an awesome job. Haven't listed to a book narrated by him that has been a bad performance yet.
It felt like there were way too many new characters introduced this book. I actually liked the journal style story telling of the last book, so I'm going to have to listen to this one again. I was waiting so long for this one I might have set myself up for disappointment. Although reading some of the other reviews, I do not think I am alone with feeling this was not as good as the other two.
Yes, this was an awesome listen. Aside from being a funny book it makes you feel for the main character.
The closest I could compare it to is Ex-Heros and Ex-Patriots and as much as i like those both this one was better.
With out giving away some of the book, the first detox scene.
Very well written and preformed spectacularly by the voice artist.
Not a bad story on its own, even without the whole " killer asteroid" heading for earth. If you have any background in law enforcement or investigation, you will probably figure out whats going on pretty fast. I do have to say I 100% respect the main character for keeping his head even though the world is coming to an end. The ending does seem to set the book up for a squeal which might be interesting and i wouldn't mind checking it out when it comes to audible.
I have never had a reaction to a book before, but i found myself "cheering" on the characters.
I can believe i am saying this, but this one was better then the first. The ending was insane, and i can wait for the third!
Jay Snyder did a fantastic job!
I have listened to it 3 times not in less then a month as well as the second book.
I am a former military man and loved this book whole heatedly. People who are looking for a Rambo charter move on, this is what i would consider a more "real life" (or as real as i could be) account of dealing with Zombies. I also loved World War Z, but this book was better hands down, and for those who do not like the ending, i thought it was a great way to lead into the second book.
Yes, but be warned it is ABRIDGED!!!
I read reviews that stated the book was too political, and at first i thought so as well, I have to admit I lean more so towards the right. However I am also worldly and understood that the books political views are from those of their country of origin, Max Brooks (son of Mel Brooks) does an awesome job in writing this story and keeping it interesting. I was very disappointed that the audio book was ABRIDGED. That it the only reason I did not give it 5 stars.
