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.
I liked everything about this "book" except its length. I want to listen to the rest of the books in the series, but I'll probably wait until there's a sale to buy them.
If you enjoy Samuel L. Jackson's ironic and hilarious use of the F word in movies, then you will definitely enjoy this book.
Superheroes and zombies.
If you like superheroes and zombies, then this is the book for you! It's like a combination of Watchmen and 28 Weeks Later.
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?
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.
This reminded me of Delirium by Lauren Oliver.
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.
I haven't listened to any of her other performances, but I definitely plan to in the future.
