I first saw this as a great movie with a great English cast and was eager to see how this audio would compare and it does. This is how London was when I was growing up, friends forever looking after the loved ones, caring for mates.
The care for the widow, the treatment of the ashes with reverence.
A true story of friendship in a time when friends really were friends for life.
I felt the wait for book 8 was a long one, I enjoyed the previous 7 that much so I had high a need for it sooner and expectations as well as questions. Would this be the end, how could Mark Tufo finish the series or continue it and in this I found out and Mark Tufo did not let me down.What did I love best about Zombie Fallout 8 - the wit, Mark Tufo has a gift for throwing out those lines that give that chuckle of pleasure, irony, a shake of the head and a giggle.
Having only heard Sean Runnette in this series I would say he is perfect. Sean has Talbot down perfectly.
Oh boy yes, but unfortunately us chumps have to work.
I have loved this series, and recommend it to anyone who likes a darn good zombie book and with humor, with vampires too and characters you can imagine.
I have to say Tripp is by far my favorite character. He keeps it real for me. How he survived the Zombie hordes is perhaps another story (hint, hint) Mr. Tufo.
I have had the pleasure of listening of the previous 7 in a series which for me gave me a month or more of isolation and high listening stats which proves the enjoyment. And this one would have been the icing and now I ask will there be more.... I will wait.
The Perfect Version
This was a great listen, so many stars and so many characters. Max Brooks wrote a brilliant book with great description and great words and each word spoken by stars who made the work come alive
It is not the end of the world, but the start of recovery
An enjoyable version and one I am truly pleased to have heard and have in my library.
High, I am a fan of the three leads and it was great to hear them all together in this.
Each are fine speakers and all had great performances in this. Done in front of a live audience this protection took me there and in my minds eye I could see each of them there in front of me. A great performance.
We Miss Fun.
I had never read Fanny Hill (nor heard it until now) but knew off it. I knew of its reputation and history but on a whim decided to purchase and have a listen. The first thing I noted was how wound up we have become with a 'naughty story' a little bit of 'titillation' can be fun and Fanny Hill shows this. Why have we become so sour on the subject of titillation. Before TV and radio, at a time when people were more serious along came Fanny Hill and its like, shock, horror and giggles.
Now is that not fun?
Yes, most certainly. Omid Djalili spins a tale like no other. Down to Earth, an hint of crazy, lots of humor and of course, honesty. One listening will not be enough.
The choice of Omid doing the narration is a true gem of a decision. I have admired this man's humor for many years and no one but him could do himself justice. You can picture Omid in the Studio having fun narrating this book.
I have his other two books and enjoy them immensely.
I have to say, in today's age there are jokes that would be considered wrong if said by any other person but Omid somehow gets away with it and makes us laugh doing it.
I find Omid a great comedian, I adore everything he does. He is able to, in this day of (as I see it) too much political correctness say what he does in a manner we just love, yet potentially said by others could be seen as racist, derogatory and offensive. Somehow Omid gets away with it - to our enjoyment. An honest comedian.
Well done Omid a fine book, a fine narration. And made a few travels on Public Transportation a lot more fun for me.
A fine listen
Yes and was annoyed I could not.
I have really enjoyed this series and do certainly recommend it to my audible loving post apocalyptic fellow readers (listeners)
You will not be disappointed.
I liked the timely of the book, the story did not rush and done not push too much at you. I could envisage that in an actual pandemic many of the stories in this book would or could occur and that I found made this book interesting.
A very good job, well don.
I liked the timely in this book, how the timely made the book more believable. I was never bored or felt I had Heard (read) this type before.
Probably the top ten of post apocalyptic books list, maybe top five.
Good voice, clear and concise, easy to listen too.
A good book, different from the 'standard' apocalyptic books much more story, much more emotion. I would like more Writer and Narrator
Yes, it is a detailed and descriptive story. Listen carefully.
This is unlikely many disaster books, more detail, paced in reality in real time even. Which is better as it aids to the believability.
I think most of the characters but do like the lead Alec and in particular his wife. Someone I would not want to upset.
Yes and very nearly did.
A good book, I read the Jakarta Pandemic which is the book that got me interested in Steven Konkoly's writing. I liked that as it was very detailed (as I will say in review of that book) so I expected much the same in this book and found it excellent in the style.
John David Farrell did an excellent job
Absolutely and will, the story is so well woven, so well interloping that I need too so to ensure I got every inch of the story out.
Most certainly Stephen King's The Stand. I had thought nothing could compare to that book but Swan Song does come close. How close? Very close.
Leave as is, this is perfectly titled
Did you love the Stand, then Swan Song is a book you must read/Listen too.
