As an Englishman born and Australian by choice I had heard of this story but never knew much about it. Peter Fitzsimmons does an excellent telling of a story that defines Australia,
Does the story great justice in the telling
Peter Fitzsimmons books are well worth being in many book libraries. He leads in telling stories with immense detail.
I must say this is a good story, I listened to the first 'The Infection' and then immediately on to this one and very much enjoyed the journey through the two. Mr DiLouie created some interesting characters and they were well presented by Peter Ganim.
The 'baddies' those creatures were very well described and believable although I think the screeching Mr. Ganim did of the creatures had me rushing for the volume control, but still a good effort.
I found the human characters to have a variety of different personalities which I could believe in. (read/listen to the book to understand that comment)
Overall, I enjoyed the ride, the story is excellent and the narration excellent.
I got this on a whim, my books of late have been on the Zombie type, disasters and such like so I thought something lighter would be a reprieve. It was although I did have the thought some Zombies would act a whole lot better than some of the dumb in this book. It did as I expected give me something lighter, a giggle (barely more) and a sense of 'Oh my God' really!!!
Do not expect something heavy, hell the book title tells you that it wont be but go into this with a giggle factor and you will get it.
Yes, I at first found the different storylines a little hard to follow but got into it. I will listen again as the season is worth the second listen.
Enjoyable, I like the format and recommend to my fellow audible fans on the genre
Lou Diamond Phillips was excellent. Having listened to other of his performances I am glad he did this too.
I was sorry to finish this as it was Tom Clancy's last. I have enjoyed the wild ride of his stories particularly the John Ryan (Snr) stories and was dubious of the John Ryan (Jnr) trail yet I have grown to love the sagas. Tom Clancy will be missed by this reader/listener and will wonder if Mark Greaney will take on the mammoth steps to continue the stories on, I don't know.
This is a long way around to say this was as great book as expected, a well written, well told book and one that deserves to be in my library. I will listen to this again and marvel at how the past and present, the injection from other Ryan books and the characters have grown.
Why the regret, I just hope maybe, there is something more. If not, I will just have to read and listen again and enjoy a master storyteller.
I would say around the middle. I chose this just to hear something different, something a little strange and something fun. Timothy Long did not fail me.
Trying to clean his Zombie Babe
Sun, Sea, Palm trees, Sunny beaches and a Zombie Babe what man could ask for more
I sat here thinking what to put for additional comments and just say, if you have listened to Dead Drunk then this can be compared. I seriously - and will admit it - wondered if Tom Hanks would have been any different? Enjoy - I hope. Be horrified - I am sure
I can see the semblance to the movie Castaway but then that gives this story an edge. Just how would we act in the same situation? Have fun of course
Yes I would. Just to fully understand some parts of the story I found disturbing.
Can I really say Timothy was my favorite character?
Yes, to just finish it.
I really dithered before buying this, I have listened to all the Zombie Fallout series and Riley books and found them all excellent. Therefore something else from Mark Tufo is of interest. Yet this books synopsis gave me a 'give it a miss' thought, yet I purchased, I listened and... I can not say I really enjoyed it as it is disturbing/different/unusual and to say so may be construed 'I am strange' (and I mean that humorously) But Mark Tufo stories voiced by Sean Runnette do not disappoint. This is a different book and yes, I will listen to Tim2 perhaps with the thought 'Dear God what am I getting into' Well done. Writing and narrating done very well. Just what a reader/listener wants.
It is a good story, I felt for the characters
Less shouting, I do like a narrator that gets into the performance and this is done very well by Katherine Kellgren but there was times I had to turn down the volume or take the headphones from the ears as the shouting/acting was just too loud.
This is a very different view of an apocalyptic event and aftermath and one that seemed possible yet left me a little wanting. I will listen to book 2 and see what develops. Which in many ways is what a author should do.
I am actually considering to listen to this again. My first listen had me thinking YUK but bit by bit I got into it.
Well read, good work by Mr. Hellehegers
Cry No, Laugh yes occasionally but an extreme reaction....Oh yes, most certainly yes, yes... I thought YUK, Gross, felt like if I had friends like these I would throw them to the Zombies - especially left nut.
I would put this up there with the movies a group of guys would watch drunk and high on something, like a good (bad) Zombie movie. (which really does describe this audiobook very well even if I do say so myself) This is not a book for the moral majority to enjoy. It is in that 'was it really worth the buy?' I say yes but slowly, it is unique, disturbing, strange, imaginative and just downright entertaining. I think maybe being drunk when listening to this may just work.Well Done Richard Johnson and narrator Neil Hellegers
I am happy with this book, the story and the narration is good. I must say I found it enjoyable, compelling to listen too and interesting. I am still unsure if I liked the character Dylan basically for the way she treated our poor Sheriff but then that was part of the fun of it all.
I would have preferred more about the FLU and the effects, but as a story it is enjoyable.
I have always loved zombie books yet this series ignited a new fire in me both the Author Mark Tufo with his characters and wit and Sean Runnette with his brilliant narration had me enthralled. I am sure the humour written and well delivered had a few fellow travellers in my public transport to and from work thinking I am crazy. Well done guys, you are a great team.
I think it has to be BT I really felt for him and Sean did the role very well
Zombies, vampires everywhere but Talbot is here to save you all - be afraid
Great books, great narration, keep them coming and keep author and narrator together
