After reading patient zero and loving it I decided to give this one a shot and I'm glad I did. Many authors are venturing into "young adult" but really I think that's more of a marketing scheme than an indication of the content. While this book is definitely about a young boy coming of age it certainly isn't something I would only restrict to young readers. It has good character development, great action without being too over the top, and an entertaining story. I don't believe this breaks new ground in the zombie genre, but the "family business" is an interesting twist on the genre and something that I could certainly see existing. Lots of stimulating thought on what morality and society really means. The story itself is nothing spectacular. Typical lows and highs with a grand finale, but the characters really give this story life.
The narrator is easy to listen to and I stayed glued to my headphones. However, I would of liked more character voices. He does a good job with most but not as much variance as some of the narrators on here. Perhaps I'm being overly critical and I do still recommend giving it a listen.
I give the story 5 stars and the narrator 4. I don't personally like reading reviews on audible that just rate the book and not the narrator. If you read this please consider that in your next review. Audible please give us the ability to give two ratings!
I hope Jonathan Maberry continues writing books, I'm really enjoying his worlds.
