I liked the story behind the book. It was interesting and it did keep my attention, I kept wanting to know where it was going to go next. I would recommend this book, it is not a scary book nor an overly gory book, so nothing to get squeamish over unless you have a problem with mice.
This story held my attention. I did not find my mind wandering off like it does with some stories. The characters are likable, and well developed, the Narrater can be irritating, his style is slow, if you try to set your speed up to say 1.5, it is like he racing like a jet fighter pilot. The pauses between chapters is long, a couple of times I found myself wondering if it quit playing. But overall I really liked this story.
No. I am sure the narrator does a fine job, but this book he literally drove me nuts!
The narrator fluctuated his voice to the point that the was speaking so low you had to turn up the volume only to blown out of your chair with blood running out of your ears! Not really that extreme but you get the idea. The story behind this book is good, but the narration pulls away from it.
No, after having to have my heart defliberated a couple of times due to really really really low narration AND THEN THE EXTREMELY LOUD NARRATION IN THE SAME BREATH...sheesh
No, other than the narration really made this book a hard one for me to finish. I think if the fluctuating had not been there, I would have really liked this book. As a side note, on the parts he was not either talking really low or SCREAMING, he did a fabulous job. I did not mind him at all.
The narrator, he actually came across how I would see the main character coming across in real life.
I liked this story because it told it from the point of view of the loner. If such a thing were to ever happen there will more loners out there than "groups" . The book seemed very realistic to me if such a zombie apocolypse would happen. This is exactly what we would have to go through.
I would! It is a easy listen, and this one is good for a start to finish if you have a couple of hours to devote to it. I left the book I was listening to and listened to this one while I cleaned the house. It started, told a story, and ended. When it was over, house work was done!
The swingset on they playground.
This book gets into it quickly and keeps with it to it's satisfying end. I would not use a credit on this one, not for a 2 hour book, these little short ones, I just usually just buy these, they dont' cost alot. Save your credit for the more expensive books.
This might not be a fair review cause I just cannot get through this book! I finally quit 1/3 of the way in. The narration is horrible, maybe if Scott Brick read this book it might be different.
Not read it.
Maybe at a later time I will force myself to listen to it again, but save your credit and just read this one.
It was a good listen. The narrator did a good enough job with everyones voice. I can't say it was my favorite but it was not the worst I've listened to either.
The ending! I mean Really????
Grandpa. For the age of the man, he has a lot of stamina, and I love how he worked through getting to have a relationship with his grandson.
Not going to give out and spoilers but the there is a alot of promise with a story such as this, but I feel it fell a little short. Parts of the book seem to flow, while other parts felt like they were just stuck in there as a little extra.
I would. Now that I know the ending, I would pay more attention to some of the little details.
The realization for Cap at the end. I just wanted to cry for the man.
I enjoyed this book. It is suspenseful, scarey at times, and it did keep me wanting to listen to it. There are a few places where it lulled but overall a good listen.
Overall narration was good, but his handling of the female characters is a little off. He portrayed David's daughter with a english accent, but did not with any of the other characters. How does a little girl who lives in CO get a english accent when no one else in the family does?
I really enjoyed the overall premise of the book, without giving out any spoilers, the leading up the ending felt a little rushed, and the actual ending left it like there should be a book 2. The book kept me interested, even though the little girl has a english accent, and the wife at times really irritated me with how she was handling the haunting. She just keeps saying do this and it will go away.
I would not without having said friend read/listen to Rushed (book 1). Having said that, I would highly recommend these books! They are not heavy on the horror aspect but they are a really fun listen.
Eric, just the way he handles all the obsticles he is faced with through out the book.
No, but the whole story line just kept my attention, and I can't say that about all the books I listen to.
In my own personal opinion, these books do not disappoint.
