    yea, I've already recommended it.


    Which character – as performed by Sean Runnette – was your favorite?

    Michael is my favorite character but BT is a close runner up. And as much as I want to hate her, I love Mrs. Deneaux.

    Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

    First time novelist, Patrick D'Orazio, takes us on a journey that follows the path of the everyman, Jeff Blaine, in the days after the end of the world. Six weeks have passed since the virus ravaged the world's population and in that time most of humanity has passed into shadow, turning into corrupt, rotting flesh eaters that known only pain and hunger as they attempt to destroy the remaining members of the human race. Jeff has lost everything, including much of his desire to continue surviving in this hell on earth.

    What would have made Comes the Dark better?

    I love zombie books. Hell, if there's anything about a story that has the living dead in it, i'm normally hooked. But the writing on this book is just bad. The characters are no where near believable and the story is chocked full of grammar errors. Ok, call me a grammar nazi....I don't care, but if you're going to go through all the trouble to write a book, at least take some time and create a coherent sentence. It's a huge pet peeve of mine.

    But back to the characters. So a man loses his wife and family to zombies in the first few pages and he's A-OK and fine about 30 minutes later. Bullcrap, I'd be curled up in a corner hoping the zombies pulled me apart. Bad characters & bad writing.

    The only saving grace to this story is the narrator Jim Cooper. His voice is great for this kind of story. I'll have to see what other stories he reads. He really knows how to set the mood in a horror story. Too bad he had very little to work with here.


    What could Patrick D' Orazio have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Better character development, buy Hooked on Phonics (he'll need it if he wants to be a decent writer).


    What didn’t you like about Jim Cooper’s performance?

    I liked his performance


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment, I wish I had bought another book instead.


    Any additional comments?

    Seriously, don't waste your time.

    Indian Hill is about an ordinary boy who grows up in relatively normal times but who finds himself thrust into an extraordinary position. Growing up in suburban Boston, Michael enjoys the trials and tribulations that all adolescents go through, from the seemingly tyrannical mother, to girl problems, to run-ins with the law. From there he escapes to college out in Colorado with his best friend, Paul, where they begin to forge new relationships with those around them. It is one girl in particular that has caught Michael's eye, and he alternately pines for her and laments ever meeting her.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well, Talbot is my favorite of course.


    Have you listened to any of Sean Runnette’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, he's a great performer. His voice just seems to match the tone and story that Tufo writes


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed in parts and cringed in a few others. Mark Tufo has a way of dragging a response out of his readers.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoy Tufo's stories but I have to say that Indian Hill is just not as much of an attention grabber as his Zombie Fallout series is. Don't get me wrong, I think Indian Hill is a great story but he's got better series to read.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    Survivors is the all-new soul-shattering climax to the postapocalyptic trilogy, featuring a deadly virus, military action, global devastation - and zombies. A lot can change in three months: Wars can be decided, nations can be forged...or entire species can be brought to the brink of annihilation. The Morningstar Virus, an incredibly virulent disease, has swept the face of the planet, infecting billions. The infected hosts rampage, attacking anything that remains uninfected.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I love the world that Recht created but with his loss, we just got a sub-par ending to his series. Brannan changed up a few of the zombie infection rules at the last minute in a WTF moment and great characters were just left being back story characters that really didn't matter much to the story in the last book. Get if you just want to finish the series off and say you listened to them all but be prepared to be let down somewhat by the ending.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Z. A. Recht and Thom Brannan ? Why or why not?

    Recht.....sure, but that won't happen. Brannan, I won't say no but it would have to get really good reviews.


    Did Oliver Wyman do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Somewhat. His narration was kind of bothersome in the other books also.


    Do you think Survivors needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, let it sleep. Pay Recht the respect his universe deserves and don't mess it up any more.

    Would you listen to Shattered Hourglass again? Why?

    What other book might you compare Shattered Hourglass to and why?

    DBDA 1 & 2, The Zombie Fallout series (although they are much more funny) and maybe even the Reign of the Dead series.

    No

    Any additional comments?

    This story felt rushed. The action was there but not like in the other 2 books. I really like this series and if it all ends with this book, I'm going to be a bit disappointed. There's just so much more that can be done with this world that J.L. Bourne has created. I'd love to read more about it.

    What did you love best about The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury?

    These books have great character developement plus the added bonus of zombies. If you're a fan of the comics then you'll enjoy learning more about characters from those.


    Would you recommend The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury to your friends? Why or why not?

    I already have recommended it to a co-worker.


    What about Fred Berman’s performance did you like?

    His voice is great for those chilling scenes where a zombie might pop out of nowhere.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The deaths of any of the main characters were well written.

    The Zombie Fallout series is one of my favorite zombie series of all time. I'm going to be bummed when it all ends.

    I can't really think of any off hand. It's in a league all it's own.


    What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

    He's one of the best narrators I've heard. I'll listen to other books just because he's reading them.
