    What did you like best about Zombie Fallout 5? What did you like least?

    I get tired of the 13 year old boy bathroom humor or maybe obsession with bodily functions is a better way of saying it. The only thing we ever well almost ever hear about the dog is that he stinks and this is said in many ways over and over. The fart comments are not just for the dog we have to hear about how the boys fart or stink up the bathroom and how much poo stinks. Specifically for this book, I did enjoy it, even didn't mind the side back stories, the end was such a major cliff hanger though, I hate feeling presured to buy the next book. If one comes out in who knows when, I'm not sure I will be interested. Mike the main character has become more annoying than interesting. I understand he has said over and over his filter doesn't work, but he seems to always mentally revert back the the previously mentioned 13 year old boy and I tire of it. So, I think for me the series ends with this book.


    Was Zombie Fallout 5 worth the listening time?

    Overall I have enjoyed these books, this review is for the whold series so far. I love a good zombie story, and this for the most part fits that.

    Kitty Norville is back and in more trouble than ever. Her recent run-in with werewolves traumatized by the horrors of war has made her start wondering how long the U.S. government might have been covertly using werewolves in combat. Have any famous names in our own history actually been supernatural?

    I love Marguerite Gavin, I don't understand what was up in this book, maybe she had a cold and they were in a time crunch.... the rest of the story was okay, I am getting tired of Kitty acting really stupidly, she should know better by now.

    I have loved this book for years, and it was good as an audio, although all the bad things that have been said about the narrator are true, I somewhat did get used to it and the robot sounding Japanese only bothered me a little.

    I've read Clavell's books several times and thought I'd give the audio a try, loved them and I think I could listen to John Lee read a phone book he is so good at it. I wish he had read Shogun.

    In the second book of the Star Force series, Kyle Riggs has another bad year. The Nano ships have a new mission--one that sentences their pilots to death. Meanwhile, the governments of Earth want to steal Star Force's Nano technology for their own. Worst of all, Earth has made a promise to the Macros, and the machines are coming to collect.

    Story

    I enjoyed this, and the first book for the most part. I did so get tired of Rigg's girlfriend, and the battle at the end was tiresome, I kept getting distracted which is a red flag. I usually don't want to stop listening to the books I get from audible. I do not think I will finish the series unless I run out of books, I do have a desire to see what happens next, but it's not a strong desire, maybe if the girlfriend isn't in it so much I will give it a try, Also, the marines don't feel real enough, it sounds strange for this type of book but when I read I completely suspend my disbelief. I'm more in the David Weber or Elizabeth Moon camps, grittier more complex... but these books have been fun just a bit too slick,.

    Fleeing assailants through alleyways in Denver late one night, Thomas Hunter narrowly escapes to the roof of an industrial building. Then a silent bullet from the night clips his head and his world goes black. When he awakes, he finds himself in an entirely different reality, a green forest that seems more real than where he was. Every time he tries to sleep, he wakes up in the other world, and soon he truly no longer knows which reality is real.

    Would you try another book from Ted Dekker and/or Rob Lamont?

    no


    Would you ever listen to anything by Ted Dekker again?

    no


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I didn't mind the narrator as much as others did, I thought he was fine.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was interesting to me until we went to the dream? world,


    Any additional comments?

    I never could figure out why he thought the world in wich he had a family and remembered history was the dream and why the world in which he couldn't remember anything was real, and then why would ANYONE have listened to a man (a kid) 25 years old because he had a dream. It really was a fantasy world. I also didn't know Dekker was a Christian author, that soulds wrong, I am a christian but I do not like the bible re written or paraphrased using obvious name games with bible names and situations, I wish I had read more reviews, I guess I only saw the over the top 5 stars, now I've wasted this credit and one for the next book forgot my rule of reading the first in a series before I buy more.

    The brutal murders of three young boys paralyze the citizens of Platte City, Nebraska. What's worse is the grim realization that the man recently executed for the crimes was a copycat. When Sheriff Nick Morrelli is called to the scene of another grisly murder, it becomes clear that the real predator is still at large, waiting to kill again.

    Ronna says: "Potential great thriller-bit like soap opera!!"
    "Harlequin?"
    Overall

    Felt like I was reading a Harlequin Romance. The serial killer angle was interesting to me, but the sappy over the top romance was annoying and trite. Was also disappointed with the ending, if there is a sequel, as it is obvious there should be, I won't buy it.
