My main issue with this audiobook is the incessant bickering and sarcasm. Maybe some people like that, apparently a lot do, but I wouldn`t recommend this book. I just found myself getting annoyed and frustrated with the relationship between the main character and his wife, and how he`s always getting the evil eye`from her.
For instance, who bickers over which car to take when your kids life is on the line?
I tried the second book and just couldn't deal with it. Slow plot movement, and the character kept referencing back to the first book in an attempt to explain plot holes away.
I stopped listening after a few chapters of nothing much happening and returned it.
The performance was well done, he captured the character's essence very well. Should be a 5 star performance but I just can't stand the character enough to rate it that high.
The survivalism aspect of the book was neat...personally I think that's what a lot of people are drawn to with zombie stories. It definitely satisfied in that department.
Mostly I felt frustration.
As I said, I wouldn't recommend, but clearly most people really dig this story. Maybe it just wasn't for me.
