    In this wry take on the post-apocalyptic horror novel, a pandemic has devastated the planet. The plague has sorted humanity into two types: the uninfected and the infected, the living and the living dead. Now the plague is receding, and Americans are busy rebuild­ing civilization under orders from the provisional govern­ment based in Buffalo. Their top mission: the resettlement of Manhattan.

    Annie says: "Tomorrow needs a marketing rollout."
    "Not the next great american author I was hoping"

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

    If I knew that I'd be a bestselling author.


    What was most disappointing about Colson Whitehead’s story?

    The sly, insightful evisceration of american culture was just tired. Seemed as if he was writing with a thesaurus next to his computer.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Struggled with pacing and incorrect emphasis of words endlessly. Hard to follow


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

    Hey, it had zombies, at least.


    Any additional comments?

    Sorry, Colson's no Franzen, and Beresford's no Simon Vance.
