    When Gregor falls through a grate in the laundry room of his apartment building, he hurtles into the dark Underland, where spiders, rats, and cockroaches coexist uneasily with humans. This world is on the brink of war, and Gregor's arrival is no accident. A prophecy foretells that Gregor has a role to play in the Underland's uncertain future. Gregor wants no part of it, until he realizes it's the only way to solve the mystery of his father's disappearance.

    During the Outbreak, like billions of others, a man finds himself infected with the Phage. Desperate to spare his family from watching him become a walking nightmare, he flees. Soon after, he is dead. Two years later, he wakes up. Not in the afterlife, but in his own body. Trapped, unable to control the monster that carries him, and forced to witness the horror of its existence.

    Another story to add to the small group of books that tell the zombie tale from a different perspective and that's why I liked it. Not overwhelmingly good but if you need a little change from the typical stuff you've read in the genre give it a try.

    I love this entire series and have listened to each of them with my family. Each of the stories mature, you just can't help following this family along through all of their trials. Finally in book 3, they continue their journey to finally find their home land. Great for all ages. It's something you will put in that special place for all-time favorites.

    Our favorite white trash zombie, Angel Crawford, has enough problems of her own, what with dealing with her alcoholic, deadbeat dad, issues with her not-quite boyfriend, the zombie mafia, industrial espionage, and evil corporations. Oh, and it’s raining, and won’t let up. But things get even crazier when a zombie movie starts filming in town, and Angel begins to suspect that it’s not just the plot of the movie that's rotten. Soon she's fighting her way through mud, blood, bullets, and intrigue, even as zombies, both real and fake, prowl the streets.

    Yes, it's about zombies, but even they won't feel familiar to you in this story. The entire take on the genre, the perspective, the main character are so A typical, you are going to be begging for more by the end of it. The character development, is quite wonderful. Angel is a character you want to get to know. The beauty of it is that, there's so much potential for her to grow and mature and that equals so much material for a long and lovely friendship between this character and the reader. Loved it.

    "Mountain Man" Augustus Berry is a survivor in undead suburbia. He scavenges what he can from what's left over. He is very careful in what he does and where he goes, taking no chances, no unnecessary risks, and weighing every choice...until he decides to visit the hospital at the edge of town, and experiences terror the likes he's never encountered before.

    Story

    It's very easy for me to get interested in anything narrated by R.C. Bray which is really the only reason I decided to check this out. I've read the sequels to this and I am glad I did. What I can tell you is that, it's a creepy little story, but it's a very nice introduction to a great character. I like Gus and I'm sure that you're going to want more than the little tidbit The Hospital will provide. So carry on when done. The Mountain Man awaits.

    Boomstick. Samurai bat. Motorcycle leather. And the will to live among the unliving. Augustus Berry lives a day-to-day existence comprised of waking up, getting drunk, and preparing for the inevitable day when "they" will come up the side of his mountain and penetrate his fortress. Living on the outskirts of a city and scavenging for whatever supplies remain after civilization died two years ago, Gus knows that every time he goes down into undead suburbia could be his last.

    Story

    I read this because I read the short story, The Hospital and became interested in the main character, Gus. This was a nice little guilty pleasure. Gus is such an interesting character that I found myself imagining his full back story, only a small portion of which we get in the book. He's a good guy, but not in a typical way. Yes, there are zombies in this book, but the live people are what make it so interesting. It's rare that I find a character that I become quite this invested in. I don't think you'll be disappointed here.

    Through a heady cocktail of drugs and the occult, Bosley slips through time and space and glimpses The End. Cities lay in ruins, and those who still cling to life hide in the rubble like frightened animals. Walking carcasses shamble through the debris exacting a horrible fate upon any living they find. This horrific future is the only world fourteen year old Ocean has ever known. Starving and alone, she struggles for even the most basic of necessities: food, water, shelter, love….

    Story

    Well, you're in for a lot of cursing, that's for sure. BUT, it didn't deter me from enjoying this story, which goes back and forth between before the zombie outbreak and quite some time after it. I feel like almost anything I say will be a spoiler so I have to be careful, but I liked the narration and I liked the way the stories happening at two different points in time came together. The main character tells half of the story though an interview. If you like the zombie genre and you want to read something different from the norm, this is for you. Sequel, sequel, sequel. Please!

    Annie Starling is missing her memory of the last eight weeks - the most devastating in history. It started in Russia and went global in a matter of days, the most virulent virus the world has ever known. It's stripping its victims of every last thing that makes them human. And that's just the beginning. The other survivors are no less dangerous than the infected. She meets Lane, who stops at nothing to assert power and control over everybody who's left; Kyle, who dreams of building a new world upon the ruins of the old.

    Story

    There are a couple of interesting twists tucked in to this story and you don't have to wait too long to find out what the first one is (I guessed it). The narrator does a decent job with the various voices. Some of the characters worked my nerves but it wouldn't be a good book if everyone made sense. Of course, there are a couple of moments where you think, "that would never work", etc, but the good action outweighs the bad. It wasn't a bad way to spend an afternoon and I will likely listen to the sequel when it becomes available.

    Cassie Forrest isn't surprised to learn that the day she’s decided to get her life together is also the day the world ends. After all, she’s been on a self-imposed losing streak since her survivalist parents died: she’s stopped painting, broken off her engagement to Adrian and dated a real jerk. Rectifying her mistakes has to wait, however, because Cassie and her friends have just enough time to escape Brooklyn for her parents’ cabin before Bornavirus LX turns them into zombies, too.

    Story

    If you think this is going to be your typical post apocalyptic zombie tale, you're wrong. It's mostly a collection of memories and events that happened prior to the outbreak. With well over 100 chapters in this title, there is surprisingly very little zombie action. If you are looking for lots of action and gore, look on. This listen was just ok for me. The narrator does an adequate job, but for the most part, these people go about life in a fairly normal way and are not bothered by zombies most of the time. I found it kind of dull, no idea where the "wow's" are coming from.

    August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school - until now. He’s about to enter fifth grade at Beecher Prep, and if you’ve ever been the new kid, then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie’s just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he’s just like them, despite appearances?R. J. Palacio has crafted an uplifting novel full of wonderfully realistic family interactions, lively school scenes, and writing that shines with spare emotional power.

    2019. Six years after the Jakarta Pandemic “decimated” the world's population; life is back to normal for the Fletchers and most Americans. The United States stands at the brink of a complete domestic and international resurgence, with stories of confidence and prosperity dominating the headlines. Appearances can be deceiving. An undercurrent of paranoia and fear still runs strong below the surface; the collective angst spawned by 28 million American deaths forever stamped into population's psyche.

    I was excited to hear this after The Jakarta Pandemic, which I firmly believe is one of the best stories of the genre. I was glad to be back with these characters and hear how things continue after the pandemic. For the most part, I wasn't disappointed, the story was pretty engaging. The only issue is that it ended too abruptly and it seems they really could have continued on and found a better point to leave off until the next installment. That said, I will be anticipating the 2nd and I do recommend this one, especially if you were left wanting more after Jakarta.
