    Jack, a sometimes humorous, sometimes philosophical ex-special operations pilot and soldier is one of the few left to struggle through the desolation left in the aftermath; seeking to survive as a new ferocious species emerges from the rubble, hungry and unrelenting. Will his special-forces training be enough? Will he be able to keep his children safe and guide the few survivors through perils that now roam the world they once knew? Or will the hordes that now own the night prevail, forever removing the last of mankind from existence?

    top ten


    Which character – as performed by Christopher John Fetherolf – was your favorite?

    Jack


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

    It made me laugh a couple of times but mostly just tense thanks to the different voices and sounds.


    Any additional comments?

    Since I've already read the books, I usually like to listen to them because you can hear so much that might have been missed while reading. This was no different. I loved the story line already and I was very surprised to hear the different noises and the sounds/screech and the voices of the players. It made it very realistic and kept me wanting more. The Story itself is post apocalyptic but instead of the usual zombies plot, this has a twist.

    Once again the Flu Virus and Vaccine are the culprits but instead of it creating Zombies, it creates a mutated form of human that is faster, stronger and deadlier than anything anyone has ever encountered. And Mankind is their primary source of food. But their one advantage is daylight... the creatures are deathly allergic to sunlight.

    But all Jack wants is to rescue his kids then find a way to cross the ocean to bring Lynn, his soldier girlfriend home. He has given his word and will not let her down. His sense of duty and high morals have him at odds because he wants above all else find a safe place for his family, Lynn, and anyone else that has come under the protection of his umbrella

    But the creatures rule the night and they must survive every night, praying for daylight so they can begin planning on surviving another night... a vicious cycle that has only just begun.

    The Camp Ryder Hub is broken. Lee is nowhere to be found, and his allies are scattered across the state, each of them learning that their missions will not be as easy as they thought. Inside the walls of Camp Ryder, a silent war is brewing, between those few that still support Lee's vision of rebuilding, and the majority that support Jerry's desire for isolation. But this war will not remain silent for long.

    Where does The Remaining: Fractured rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Ranks almost at the top


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lee Hardin


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

    While I like the narrator, it has taken me a while to get used to him. Perhaps because he also narrated the first 3. He has gotten better.


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

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the storyline because there is so much going on between characters and the decisions and choices they make that will affect them and those around them. Angela has grown stronger since Lee found her and her daughter and a bit more confident although trapped and friendless among people she never believed would turn against her. She has become a stronger personality because she has no choice. Lee although betrayed and severely injured refuses to give up on himself and his mission perhaps because now he has a new charge, Deuce, that he feels responsible for. Harper is quite the leader but LaRouche although appearing strong is essentially a very weak personality, fighting against the leadership position he did not want. Jerry has shown his true scumbag colors and is far, far worse than anyone could imagine. Kidnappings, murder, treachery and unbelievable action taking place in the span of 3 maybe 4 days. And once Lee learns of Jerry's coup the fight for Camp Ryder becomes an all out war not just between the people but the infected. That is what kept me interested especially when you do realize all the action took place in such a short amount of time. Listening to it just brought the characters to life and Mr. Rummel appears to be more comfortable with the characters. In all, a great book that I would listen to again and recommend to others.

    A phone call to his sister leads Flex Sheridan into a nightmare and a quest to save his family from a new, horrifying epidemic that's turning humans into zombies. As he makes his way from Georgia to Gainesville, Florida and back, he picks up old and new friends and survivors. Flex re-connects with perhaps the strongest woman he's ever known, Gem Cardoza, his former girlfriend.

    What did you love best about Dead Hunger?

    It was a different take on the Zombie genre and something that I never considered.


    What other book might you compare Dead Hunger to and why?

    DEAD Series by T.W. Brown only better when it comes to the characters and their development.


    Have you listened to any of John M. Perry’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first time I've heard Mr. Perry.


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

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I actually liked the southern accent that John Perry portrays since the main character is from Georgia. A couple of sections where a child was killed and he had to bury her and when he had to bury the child's mother were emotional and I could hear it in his voice. It was like he was actually there and had me in tears while he was reading those emotional scenes. I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline as well as the different take on the Zombies. The why it happened is not their foremost concern although they do learn a few things about the Zombies that is unsettling and got my attention. The narration by Mr. Perry kept me glued to the story line and the southern accent he had for Flex Sheridan made perfect sense to me since different parts of the country would have different accents and this in no way takes away or detracts from the horrific situation the character finds himself in. In all, I felt it was very well read. I hope Mr. Perry continues to narrate the Dead Hunger Series for he brings more character and emotion to the protagonist, Flex Sheridan, than I've heard from other narrators.
