    What made the experience of listening to On Target the most enjoyable?

    The amount of detailed story telling is never lost among all the action in this book. It is well crafted and very enjoyable. The story is exciting and it's really hard to break away from it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the dialog between all the players, it's intelligent and cunning.


    What does Jay Snyder bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jay Snider is by far my favorite narrator. He's been perfect in every book I've head, and this one is no different.


    Any additional comments?

    This book ties in perfectly with the first one, I like it when the stories and characters are linked to the first book (and previous mentioned experiences) it adds volumes of depth to both the story and the characters.

    Ex-CIA assassin Court Gentry thought he could find refuge living in the Amazon rain forest. But his bloody past finds him when a vengeful Russian crime lord forces him to go on the run once again. Court makes his way to one of the only men in the world he can trust - and arrives too late. His friend is dead and buried. Years before, Eddie Gamboa had saved Court's life. Now, Eddie has been murdered by the notorious Mexican drug cartel he fought to take down. And Court soon finds himself drawn into a war he never wanted.

    Did Jay Snyder do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I hate to give Jay Snyder anything less than 5 stars... He is my favorite narrator, but on this particular book there was a huge amount of female dialog. And I feel that a female narrator should have been added in addition to Jay Snyder. It would have added more realism to the performance.


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

    I really enjoyed everything that happened right after Court's rescue... The story becomes even more twisted and the action is mindblowing.


    Any additional comments?

    I found the first 2 books to be perfect. This one a little less, mostly due to the long stall when Court is spending so much time with a family... Soon after that it picks up and it's back to business for the Grayman. Other than that I wish this time around they would have added a female narrator for certain scenes. Other than that this is as close to perfection as you can get.

    Court Gentry is known as The Gray Man - a legend in the covert realm, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, and then fading away. And he always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness. Now, he is going to prove that for him, there's no gray area between killing for a living-and killing to stay alive.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wish I could have listened to it all in 1 sitting... It was really engaging and I had a hard time putting it down.


    Any additional comments?

    The high pace action and well crafted ballet of wits and survival instincts make this book really addictive. I enjoyed the story, the awesome narration... And knowing that I had 2 more sequels to look forward to make me a happy camper.

    In your hands is the handwritten journal depicting one man's struggle for survival. Trapped in the midst of global disaster, he must make decisions; choices that ultimately mean life, or the eternal curse to walk as one of them. Enter, if you will, into the world of the undead.

    What did you love best about Day By Day Armageddon?

    The story gets you involved, as soon as things start to bad (at the beginning of the story of course) you're drawn in first of all by Jay Snyder's great performance. I was truly impressed by the overall experience.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to the second book.

  • Selected Scenes from the End of the World - A Free Short Story from Zombies: The Recent Dead

    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 could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    better voice actors and story


    Any additional comments?

    Talking zombies come across as corny and destroy any chance of me getting into a good story. Sorry but that's my personal taste, it's not working for me.
    The voices weren't all that great, they were overacting and annoying.
