It had potential, but even if the had gotten better (it didn't) the narrator had an almost intentional inflection that, like others have said, made many characters sound like John Wayne. Staccato. Disjointed. Forced. But back to the storyline. The beginning wasn't bad, hoped it would move on to something deeper or something I could immerse myself into or somehow relate to. I have a little left, and I'll finish it, so it's not one I'll completely give up on. But I don't' expect the last couple hours to make up for the torture I've endured already. He crams an hours worth of story into four hours! It's worth only the $1.99 I see it's going for today. At that price, I woundn't feel shortchanged.
I've been getting more and more into the survival and zombie genre, but as much as I tried to like this one and gave it every chance, I just had to give up. I don't blame the narrator--no one could make the writing better. Repetitive descriptions, ad naseum, seeming there for filler...levels of detail on a single moment in the story that just dragged on and on, where other ones that could have benefited from elaboration and creative attention were neglected. Unrefined. Needed a series of anchor moments, but instead it was a rambling series of events strung along toward an ending...some day. I rarely return audiobooks, but this one had to go back. Maybe in this genre, overall, this is above mediocre, but not from my experience.
