    It’s all about the food…. For the Robertsons, family is typified by the dinner table, where both food and fables are dished up with equal care. Anyone with a good story - whether it be a hunting escapade or one of the children’s antics - is welcome to share. And that’s what this family is all about - sharing, caring for one another, and the love of good food. Chapters are built around recipes that represent each stage of the Robertson life. What do faith, family, ducks, and money have in common? Korie and Willie Robertson!

    Would you listen to The Duck Commander Family again? Why?

    I would definately listen to more books by the duck commander family. Some parts you could tell they were just reading,but some of it was almost them telling the story without knowing what was previously written.
    I loved the recipes at the end of each chapter.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the show and it was great to learn more about their family.

    A new flu strain has been spreading across Africa, Europe, and Asia. Disturbing news footage is flooding the cable news channels. People are worried. People are frightened. But Zed Zane is oblivious. Zed needs to borrow rent money from his parents. He gets up Sunday morning, drinks enough tequila to stifle his pride and heads to his mom's house for a lunch of begging, again. But something is wrong. There's blood in the foyer. His mother's corpse is on the living room floor.

    The United States military hides a secret: the completely real existence of eat-your-brains, one-bite-and-you're-dead zombies. The Army has known they exist for over 100, and has been quietly and expertly keeping the secret. Until now. His hometown destroyed, with everyone he has ever known dead and gone, the sole survivor of the massacre at Fall Creek joins a secret military group to combat the single greatest threat our world has ever faced. Unfortunately, his help may come too late.

    Would you try another book from Jason Kristopher and/or Chris Andrew Ciulla?

    Absolutely not.
    The voices are giving me a headache. Not to mention the ridiculous attention given to rank and the insanely easy ability to achieve it. Since I wrote this review I must now a brigadier general! Too many characters doing nothing and so many rank changes I just can't keep up. I stopped after 7-8 hours of torture. Where are the zombies??? Maybe they come in the last 3 hours. I guess I will never know.


    Has The Dying of the Light: End turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No I do not believe this is even in the genre I read.


    What didn’t you like about Chris Andrew Ciulla’s performance?

    Annoying voices


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It gives you the ability to daydream when the annoying voices are not used.


    Any additional comments?

    Please no more like this. It was so disjointed and ridiculous even for a "zombie" novel.

    Where does The First Days rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    top ten for sure!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    i didn't have a favorite. Each character had good points and bad.


    What about Cassandra Campbell???s performance did you like?

    She seemed age appropriate and didn't have any annoying pronunciations.

    I actually read this in one sitting and listened to it in two or three.

    Months ago, the world ended when an unknown virus spread throughout North America and then the world, killing millions of people. However, that is where the horror only started. The dead began to rise, and when they rose, they had an insatiable appetite for the living. A new hell had been unleashed on earth and the fight for survival had just begun. Sadie Walker is one of the survivors in this new world....

    Its really hard to hear a 12/13 year old talk about adult things. I couldn't get into the book because of the valley girl cheerleader reading this. the b's and p's are killing me!
