    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.

    "Heroes we can really root for...."
    Overall

    So happy to find my favorite zombie book on Audible! The voice actors are pretty close to sounding like these characters do in my head when I read the book. It's really cool hearing this come to life. What a fun story, with heroes that are actually "heroic," the way comic book heroes used to be. I often find that post-apocalyptic stories are too cynical and bleak for my taste, but this one is actually kind of hopeful...the sort of story you want to read all over again after you finish it.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Warren says: "Tina Fey broke my new SUV"
    "Tina Fey is hilarious as usual."
    Overall

    I'm not generally a fan of "memoirs" (they usually sound like self-aggrandizing egofests or self-pitying therapy sessions), but Tina Fey is so funny and self-deprecating that she can write about any situation and make it pure entertainment.

    Don't forget to grab the pdf -- it's full of personal photos that go with the story. To get it, go to "My Library" and under the audio download link, you'll see a "pdf" link -- make sure you're only mousing over the "pdf" part, or you'll download the book all over again.
