This is an interesting story of a zoo and it's inhabitants spanning several decades and continents. I wish I would have bought the hard copy and read it - it was a struggle to listen to this narrator for so many hours. His narration was monotone and sing-song (a contradiction, I know) - this made what could have been an excellent book barely acceptable. After the first 10 minutes I seriously considered contacting customer service to ask for my credit back. But I did persevere and the story was worth it in the end. It was heartbreaking at the end so be forewarned.
Yes I would; it's a good story. That said, it's very disappointing and distracting when the narrator mispronounces several of the street and location names in Anchorage and the surrounding area. It would take a 15 minute phone call to straighten him out. I don't know if the author ever came to Anchorage, but the narrator sure hasn't!
Yes, not right away but I could enjoy this again maybe next year.
I enjoyed the story of the female pilot that crashed and walked out to safety.
It's well done, not exactly a story with beginning, middle, end, but still enjoyable.
I like Garrison Keilor and I like zombie stories - this was a perfect blend. Being from the midwest, I felt like I could recognize some of the characters. Others were a little over the top, but then again we're talking zombie story so...
The male narrator is ok, but the female narrator is highly annoying. If I hadn't enjoyed Ender's Game so much I would have returned this book. The story is slow starting, and it was not until at least 40% of the way through that I was really hooked by it. I'm very glad I finished it and did enjoy the ending.
It's a great story that turns childhood fantasy characters on their heads.
Susan and the poker. I won't spoil it by explaining further.
He is very good at changing his voice to fit the characters, although some additional actors were used as well. I especially enjoyed the actress that spoke for Susan.
