The story was ok and the zombie back story was interesting but I felt like the ending feel apart a little....almost rushed.
The narrator has a good enough voice but he makes no effort when it comes to changing voice for each character. Hard to tell when a man or woman is speaking.
A story about very screwed up people doing a lot of really screwed up things.
From cutting to statutory rape to drinking blood. A story about horrible people doing dumb and bad things. I never really found any point to the story.
Well read, that is about it.
I really didn't like the first 1/4 of the book. I thought it was slow and I couldn't figure out the plot. As the book went on it really got much better. Really enjoyed the characters and story. Well read.
I rated the 1st book as being ok and decided to try the 2nd book based on reviews, since I did like the concepts of this futuristic world. This 2nd book was horrible. I couldn't follow the story and had a hard time connecting to any characters. Almost no action compared to the 1st book.
I liked the other Joe Hill books, but I couldn't get through this one.
Between the really bad music between chapters and the ultra slow talking narration, I couldn't finish this book. Didn't like anything about the main character. I ended up listening at 2x speed just because the book was being read so slowly.
Really a great story. Holds up against any Stephen King story. A bad guy that is just as creepy and evil as Pennywise the Clown. Cops that are actually smart and do what you would expect from cops. Really liked all of the characters. Everything was original and well thought out. I think he could do a great prequel story as a 2nd chapter.
Great reading also. Lots of emotion. Brings the story to life (and death). One of the best readings since the Joe Ledger series. I expect this reading to win awards.
The story was pretty boring as far as Zombie books go and the toilet humor was non stop. Didn't smile once. The attempt at being a zombie comedy was relentless and just not well done. Won't be reading the rest of the series.
Thought the narrator didn't have a voice that matched an ex-marine.
Overall I liked all of the characters and the future world the author created, but the story fell short. At times I felt like the story was confusing due to the way it sometimes would make a very disjointed jump in the plot.
The Todd McLaren's reading fell short when it came to female characters. You could not tell when he was reading a male or female voice, which also caused some confusion.
I may read future books in the series, but they are not top on my list.
Really enjoyed this latest edition to the series. A little different from the prior books. A little less action, replaced by more suspense. More depth to some of the characters. Can't wait for the next book.
The reading for Ray really brings Joe Ledger and crew to life. Can't imagine any other voices doing these characters.
Would make a great movie series or even a good TV show if done right (Fringe quality).
Really hard to believe that a 15 year old can learn more about a disease then any of the actual doctors and scientists researching this thing for 11 years. Give me a freaking break. No real medical or scientific training or experience does not qualify you to be a reasonable researcher. The entire concept was ridiculous.
Predictable and unbelievable even as science fiction.
I don't know if it was the story or the writing style, but I just didn't enjoy the book as much as I hoped. It may boil down to the fact that I didn't really make a connection to any of the characters, who were mostly not very likable.
Performance was ok. It was more then a standard reading with sound F/X. I hated the music transitions, which really took away from the story.
I won't be reading the next book in the series.
