    It’s been two years since the world ended. Two years since the dead rose and the plague of ex-humanity decimated mankind. For most of that time, the superhero called St. George, formerly known to the world as the Mighty Dragon, has protected the people of Los Angeles at their film-studio-turned-fortress, The Mount. Together with his fellow heroes, he’s tried to give the survivors hope and something like a real life. But the swollen population of The Mount is becoming harder and harder to sustain....

    Where does Ex-Patriots rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is easily a top 10 book. Very interesting concept and well defined characters. You are suddenly immersed into a world that is teaming with Super Hero's and Zombies.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The flow of the story and the character development. At times you don't know which side to cheer for.


    What does Jay Snyder, and Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They really enhance the experience. The good characters are really good and the bad characters are really bad, but you can relate to all of them.


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

    Yes

    Would you listen to The Jakarta Pandemic again? Why?

    Yes...I have listened to it three times and it is a great story. It is an interesting perspective on how "every day America" would react and shows why you should hold off on your gut reaction to some situations. Ted was a great character to hate.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Overall reaction by the characters and the national reaction


    What about Joseph Morton’s performance did you like?

    Voice inflection and natural story telling ability. I am currently looking for more of his work.


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

    The collection of the corporate supplies by Ted.


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth the credit.

    It’s the near future, and thanks to a perfect storm of reckless banking practices, hyperinflation, a stock market gone mad, and the negligence of our elected officials, the entire social, political, and economic infrastructure of America has collapsed. Chaos reigns in the streets, medical treatment is no longer available, and a silent coup has placed a dangerous group of men at the helm of a false government. America’s fate is in the hands of those few individuals who have the survival skills, the faith, and the forethought to return this country to the state its founding fathers intended.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Nothing changed. There was no new information that was added to the story and I quit it with an hour left. Very sorry that I purchased this.


    What was most disappointing about James Wesley, Rawles’s story?

    It was a good story the first time that I read it....


    Would you be willing to try another one of Phil Gigante’s performances?

    Yes, but it would have to be a great plot.


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

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    Save a credit and look for another series until there are more positive reviews.

    The day the world ended, Erik Tragger escaped to the mountains. Cut off from civilization for five months, he returned to find a ruined city now ruled by the living dead. Tragger joins a group of survivors with a plan: make it to Portland where humanity is carving out a stronghold. But along the way they face opposition at every turn - the dead, rogue military forces, looters - and a new enemy more dangerous than any they have yet encountered. Among the stumbling, mindless zombies are... ghouls.

    What would have made Beyond the Barriers better?

    Better character development. The lead character is the exact same on day one as the last day. Very shallow and at times he came across as an idiot. He is super fit, super smart, and ex special forces...Nice resume but some of the choices he makes are insane.


    Has Beyond the Barriers turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No...I have read so many that have been great this will no turn me off.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christian Rummel?

    Tom Weiner or Frank Muller


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

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    The narration was not what I was looking for. The over the top "Bad Ass" was not the right fit for this story.

    What made the experience of listening to The Walking Dead: Rise of The Governor the most enjoyable?

    The story is very fluid, and the characters are extremely well developed. At different times I was cheering for success and failure for all of the characters. The storyline is extremely real in the sense that the characters decisions are similar to what I would do in their situation.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Walking Dead: Rise of The Governor?

    The interaction that the group has with the 'others' is extremely intense and I was on the edge of my seat.


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

    This was my first Fred Berman book, but I will definitely listen to more.


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

    The end is very good and sets the table for the next chapter in their lives.


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful book and wonderful performance!!!

    Courtney Colvin was nearing the end of her teenage years when the undead apocalypse began. She survived, forsaking her youth and innocence, and five years later she continues to exist--albeit lonely--in the fortified town of Eastpointe. Nightmares and the unwelcome advances of Leon Wolfe are the worst things she's dealing with now in her otherwise mundane life.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book should be re-classified under young adult romance.

    I was expecting action and instead I got the story of a young woman coming of age…that happens to be set in a zombie apocalypse. The writing was predictable and there were several times that I pushed stop and had to walk away.

    The narration was flat and at times it seemed like they were reading the book for the first time.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Travis Adkins again?

    Maybe


    What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

    Voice, Inflection


    What character would you cut from Twilight of the Dead?

    Courtney....The main character!!!
