    The last thing Edward Schuett remembers is trying to defend his family as the zombie hordes descended on them. When he wakes up he finds his body dead and rotten yet healing quickly. Fifty years have passed and he's been a zombie that entire time, yet something has changed and he is coming back to something resembling life. His existence causes havoc among the rebuilt society of zombie holocaust survivors: some think he's an abomination and want to kill him while others think of him only as a scientific curiosity and want to dissect him.

    Mike Naka says: "expands the zombie genre in a good way"
    "Enjoyable adventure post zombie apocolypse"

    What made the experience of listening to The Reanimation of Edward Schuett the most enjoyable?

    The characters were able to be related to. Also the performance by the reader was very good - gave a good flow and interpretation of the work.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The flow and pace was very good - there were not moments where my attention waned.


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

    I felt that David Letwin's presentation of this work was very good - his voice, pacing, and characterization really aided in allowing me to be immersed in to the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Love that the zombie virus becomes an STD....awesome.

    Story

    Bryan Armstrong and Kyle Detwiler, two college students on the cusp of graduation, are the lucky winners of a contest to become interns on the paranormal television show The Specter Slayers. Their excitement turns to jubilation when they discover that they'll be aiding in the investigation of The Danver Church, one of the most haunted places in America. Nestled in the remote mountains of Pennsylvania, the church is world renowned for the massacre that occurred there forty years earlier.

    What would have made The Gate better?

    Better writing - I just felt this whole thing was lacking.


    What was most disappointing about Jason Brant’s story?

    I didn't care for the characters and the obvious caricature of the Ghost Hunters was rather lame. It didn't have enough substance - and perhaps sold as a young adult book my expectations would have been lowered. This story was R.L. Stein at very young reading level.


    Did Robert Martinez do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    He did an OK job of characterization - with very different voices.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Gate?

    Nothing needed to be edited out - however the story, detail, and characters needed to be developed more....a LOT more.


    Any additional comments?

    This story has been done before, and I was really hoping for more umph....I stuck through it just to see if it would get better. Unfortunately, it didn't.
