I listen to a lot of audio books and tend to like books that are dark in content and humor.

    In the present day, as the man-made apocalypse unfolds, three strangers navigate the chaos. Lila, a doctor and an expectant mother, is so shattered by the spread of violence and infection that she continues to plan for her child’s arrival even as society dissolves around her. Kittridge, known to the world as "Last Stand in Denver", has been forced to flee his stronghold and is now on the road, dodging the infected, armed but alone and well aware that a tank of gas will get him only so far. April is a teenager fighting to guide her little brother safely through a landscape of death and ruin.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    If you could sum up The Passage in three words, what would they be?

    Great Horrific Drama.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Amy. She totally intrigued me and pulled me into the story!


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Definitely. They read like real actors. Some can be so monotone.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I like to savor the good books.


    Any additional comments?

    I originally listened to the abridged version and it left me unfulfilled. The Unabridged version is defiantly the way to go. So worth it.

As they travel across the countryside they soon learn that there are more than just zombies to be fearful of....

    This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Tommy. He hears the voice of Ryan Seacrest in his head. Enough said!


    What does Sean Runnette bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great sarcasm.

    In this wry take on the post-apocalyptic horror novel, a pandemic has devastated the planet. The plague has sorted humanity into two types: the uninfected and the infected, the living and the living dead. Now the plague is receding, and Americans are busy rebuild­ing civilization under orders from the provisional govern­ment based in Buffalo. Their top mission: the resettlement of Manhattan.

    What disappointed you about Zone One?

    Took to long to get to the good parts. Too much boring backstory.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Colson Whitehead again?

    Maybe.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He was bland.


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

    Some good ideas.

    In Christopher Moore's ingenious debut novel, we meet one of the most memorably mismatched pairs in the annals of literature. The good-looking one is one-hundred-year-old ex-seminarian and "roads" scholar Travis O'Hearn. The green one is Catch, a demon with a nasty habit of eating most of the people he meets.

    I am not a writer. I'm a reader.


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

    Yes


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes
