I'm a big fan of horror, sci-fi, dystopian, and post apocalyptic novels.

    An electromagnetic pulse flashes across the sky, destroying every electronic device and killing billions. Alex hiked into the woods to say good-bye to her dead parents and her personal demons. Now desperate to find out what happened after the pulse crushes her to the ground, Alex meets up with Tom, a young soldier, and Ellie, a girl whose grandfather was killed by the EMP. For this improvised family and the others who are spared, it's now a question of who can be trusted and who is no longer human.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Ashes the most enjoyable?

    The story itself was pretty good although the idea of an EMP and zombies seems a bit like overkill. However, the narrator of this story really brought a sense of urgency and intensity to the scenes, which really made this a great listen.


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

    I haven't listened to any of her other performances, but I definitely plan to in the future.

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    If you enjoy Samuel L. Jackson's ironic and hilarious use of the F word in movies, then you will definitely enjoy this book.

    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.

    Story

    When I buy a zombie novel, I expect plenty of gratuitous violence and absolutely no redeeming "literary" qualities. This book seemed more like a grad student's commentary on society with zombies thrown in to make it palatable. If you want to read something that your post-modern lit teacher would approve of that just happens to have zombies, this book might work for you. But if you want to read something for pure entertainment value, skip it.

    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....

    If you could sum up Ex-Patriots in three words, what would they be?

    Superheroes and zombies.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like superheroes and zombies, then this is the book for you! It's like a combination of Watchmen and 28 Weeks Later.

    Welcome to Safe Haven, Wisconsin. Miles from everything, with one road in and out, this peaceful town has never needed a full-time police force. Until now.... A helicopter has crashed near Safe Haven and unleashed something horrifying. Now this merciless force is about to do what it does best. Isolate. Terrorize. Annihilate. As residents begin dying in a storm of gory violence, Safe Haven's only chance for survival will rest with an aging county sheriff, a firefighter, and a single mom.

    What did you like best about this story?

    This story is chock full of gore. The story itself is kind of ridiculous, but if you like over-the-top violence, you'll like this book. Also, how can you not love a book that features both a human-like monkey and a loyal dog?

    Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. So when Xander's face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is her ideal mate... until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black.

    What did you love best about Matched?

    I was a bit hesitant to buy Matched because I am not a fan of romance. However, the dystopian society and conspiracies in this book really elevated the creep factor, which made it worth the listen.


    What other book might you compare Matched to and why?

    This reminded me of Delirium by Lauren Oliver.
