    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 6 mins)
    • By Ryan C. Thomas
    • Narrated By MacLeod Andrews
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    It's the last weekend of summer break in the small town of Castor, and four teenage friends are about to attend the most popular end-of-summer high-school party in town… with a massive wave of mutated undead about to crash the party. It's The Breakfast Club meets Resident Evil as the teens of Castor fight to stay alive.

    Mike Naka says: "stephen king of zombies"
    "WOW! Immediately captivating"

    I am only 2 hours into this story but I had to write a quick review. Quite often I will start another audio book within hours after finishing the previous one. This makes my brain take a while to adjust to a whole new set of characters and world settings (sometimes space setttings). Not so with this book.
    As soon as the story starts Mr Thomas makes the characters believable and the story flows smoothly. The high school students interaction with each other and their parents are in sync.
    I have to admit that I am a believer that men are better narrators, they can make female voices better than females can make male voices. That said Mr. Andrews is very good and he doesn't have an English accent which would seriously marr an American setting.
    I bought this book in the $5 special that Audible had. I am going to look for more Thomas/Andrews combinations in future purchases.

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 45 mins)
    • By Daniel Suarez
    • Narrated By Jeff Gurner
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Particle physicist Jon Grady is ecstatic when his team achieves what they've been working toward for years: A device that can reflect gravity. Their research will revolutionize the field of physics - the crowning achievement of a career. Grady expects widespread acclaim for his entire team. The Nobel Prize. Instead, his lab is locked down by a shadowy organization whose mission is to prevent at all costs the social upheaval sudden technological advances bring.

    Sterling Okura says: "Entertaining Physics SciFi"
    "What an original - hopefully fictional - book!!!"

    I have purchased over 350 books and I don't write reviews, until now. The whole concept is original. It has it all: Intrigue, Good guy / Bad guy. a gorgeous woman who is bad ass yet innocent. Plot twists and believable characters.

    Hollywood needs new ideas to make into movies. They have been cranking out remakes way too often. This book should be made into a movie.

    Jeff Gurner did an excellent job of voices and enthusiasm to keep the story going.

    I know that I am going to listen to this book probably 2 times a year for unknown number of years. It is in my top 5 list.

  • 'Til Death Do Us Part: Zombie Fallout, Book 6

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 51 mins)
    • By Mark Tufo
    • Narrated By Sean Runnette
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    BT, Gary, and Mrs. Deneaux race to the Talbot compound in a desperate bid to turn the tides of a lost war. Is Michael dead? This is the question plaguing the Talbots as they prepare for the final showdown with a merciless enemy hell-bent on their absolute destruction.

    Teddy says: "Series Back on Track"
    "Mark Tufo makes a story that is captivating."

    This story is so captivating and its down to earth humor is killing me! Mike Talbot is one heck of a character as are all of the people he meets up with. Sean Runnette is a heck of a narrator and makes it sound easy to change the voices to keep the characters alive. I hope this story keeps on going. Each time I buy a new book I re-listen to the whole series.

  • Armor

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 37 mins)
    • By John Steakley
    • Narrated By Tom Weiner

    The planet is called Banshee. The air is unbreathable, the water poisonous. It is the home of the most implacable enemies that humanity, in all its interstellar expansion, has ever encountered. Felix is a scout in A-team Two. Highly competent, he is the sole survivor of mission after mission. Yet he is a man consumed by fear and hatred.

    George Dean says: "An intense and unusual work, wonderfully performed"
    "WOW, I don't write reviews, but......."

    This is the second review I have ever written. The first because the narrator was just SO bad. And this one because EVRYTHING was just SOOOO good. I bought this book because it was any only book, not a series. Now I wish it was a series. John Streakley wrote an easy to follow while just listening book. Tom Weiner narrated it with fantastic vocal inflictions. I have listened to great stories written that just did not carry over when listened to. Not this book. While listening to this book I had no problems envisioning what was going on all throughout.
    I went to the internet to see if Mr. Steakley has written other books about Amour. It looks like he has started a sequel in 2004, but it is not done, or not published yet. The official unofficial web-site isn't kept up very often.
    WOW. I can say no more. A Fantastic Author. A Fantastic Narrator.
