    This book contains foul language and fouler descriptions of life as a zombie. It will offend most anyone, so proceed with caution or not at all. And be forewarned: This is not a zombie book. This is a different sort of tale. It is a story about the unfortunate, about those who did not get away. It is a human story at its rotten heart. It is the reason we can't stop obsessing about these creatures, in whom we see all too much of ourselves.

    Story

    The warning contained in the publishers summary had me hooked, I mean what could happen in a zombie audiobook that is so offensive that it requires a warning to the end user? This coupled with the fact that I have been meaning to listen too Hugh Howey’s Wool Omnibus Edition (Wool 1 – 5) for some time now. I am looking forward to being offended by I, Zombie I think it will be difficult to do because I think there is a a place for gruesome zombie audiobooks, it really all stands with the narration.

    I, Zombie is not your typical kill some zombies, run, meet up with other survivors, kill some more zombies, run audiobook. This is a philosophical exploration of free will, humans overall drive for personal uniqueness and all entwined with an excruciating hopelessness, for anyone. The story is told from a large variety of characters, except they are already zombies, with no control over their bodies, much like a passenger on a plane, just along for the ride. Each tells of the internal struggle they find them selves in, trying to will their bodies to do something other than what its doing. If you are looking for a gruesome tale that does not offend, but does leave you feeling that there is no hope, this is perfect for you. Just do not go into this audiobook with any thoughts on how story should be told, because I, Zombie follows now rules. I was very impressed with Howey’s writing style and will be listening to more in the future.

    The team of narrators collected together to really wow the listener was superb and in my opinion really added to the dynamic of the story as a whole. Each of the narrators did a great job expressing the hopelessness of their characters situation. Having multiple narrators for I, Zombie really enhanced the story, by giving you, the listener, a audible break from despairing situation to another.

    Story

    I wasn’t really sure what to expect from Our Future Good, it wasn’t a book I had heard anything about and I had never heard of the author. After listening to the audio book I’m expecting great things from T.J Kirby. I’m not sure of the target audience for this audio book but I think that it would be perfect for young adults or anyone that enjoys a good story with a heart. The audio book is only 2 hours and 47 minutes, I was easily able to listen to it in one session, although it was that good, I have actually listened to it more than once. In a future were space travel is normal and people are living on space colonies two of them; L5Pilgrim and ISS are getting ready to head to war with each other, were genocide is a potential outcome. Mary & Joe are heading to their first project day and are undecided what they want to do, they know they want to be together but cannot decide which project they want to join. Mary wants to work on technology developments and Joe has his heart set on becoming a journalist and getting the facts and information to the public about what is really happening on the space colonies. You really need to join this pair of fun, interesting characters to see what they decide and how this adventure turns out. The book also has some very interesting ideas on future technology, which really adds to the story.

    Simon Vance does a fantastic job with the narration, grabbing the readers attention and holding it for the duration of the story. I became invested in the characters that were wonderfully performed, and easily identifiable, you just couldn’t help but want them to succeed. The story is inspiring in a way that is quite special and heart-warming, which really shows through with the narration.

    When the dead rose, they rose with a disturbing eating disorder and a weakness for peer pressure that the inhabitants of Earth were completely unprepared for. The Apocalypse just got a whole lot weirder and thank God for it. Breaking the mold of one-dimensional zombie novels, K.R. Helms blends elements of horror, science fiction, dark humor and conspiracy theories in this satirical look at post-apocalyptic survival- all the while satisfying the die-hard purists that live for blood and brutality.

    Story

    Readers are given humor, irony, exaggeration and ridicule exposing the stupidity or faults of each character. Including a list of characters that are many and varied including a king/knight from another dimension, Anubis, a Lycan, big-foot, military, government, criminals, feminists, evil plastic surgery doctor who provides a wrestling midget with double D enhanced breasts, monks, alien space ships, zombies and the list goes on. Each plays a pivotal role in this audio making each person’s journey just a tad bit harder and more meaningful.

    Helms has taken several genres and combined them successfully into one satire. I’m not sure why it took me so long to come to terms with the layout of the book. I would assume it was because I’ve never experienced anything like this. So at first, it escaped me that it was not just a zombie book.

    I had several misconceptions in the beginning. I thought it was a conglomeration of “stories” about different people and how they were surviving or not. This belief was based on the little chapter involving “Crystal Beth” a meth using stripper with children solely for the government check she collected each month until … the vivid detail of the baby eyes, the giggle, the one moment of true mom-baby connection and finally, the brutal slaying of the baby and her brother by zombies … even devoted Walking Dead fans would struggle with this evilness. I almost felt like a polar bear plunger descending into the freezing depths of glacial water.

    It was refreshing to read something of this magnitude and watch it come together at the end. There are still some parts that I am confused about but I blame the narrator (which I will share shortly). At the conclusion of the audio, I was glad to see a fairly happy ending for some while others I still wondered about their “happily ever after” ending.

    The audio production was good with no issues.

    The narrator however was distracting. The narration was fine for the most part until he got to the chapter number and chapter title – it was like nails on a chalk board. It was this that made my listening to the story extremely painful and ten times longer than I should have taken. The drawing out of the words was done in extreme “slow motion” and as if it was being said to someone with a brain injury of grave magnitude. For me this took away from the book. I know the purpose of this extreme slow motion of speaking is to demonstrate the switch of stories and identify the chapter but OMG really? I won’t go into more detail but suffice it to say my teeth hurt from gritting because of his extreme slow motion voice.

    I do recommend this book but be forewarned the narrator is a distraction. The storyline and character development is excellent and engrossing.

    Combat pilot Jake Bronson believed the worst was behind him. But when a sophisticated terrorist cell shows up in his hometown, he's drawn into a conflict that threatens the heart and soul of every mother in America. The bonds of love and loyalty are tested as Jake and his friends are swept into a deadly chase that takes them from the beaches of California to the depths of the world's longest underground river, and finally to the remote jungles of the Venezuelan rain forest.

    Story

    Following on from the events in ‘Brainrush’ Jake Bronson’s life is back to normal, until a terrorist tries to get payback for what Jake did at the end of the last book. Aware that all is not ok, Jake and his friends are hunted by an enemy they thought to be dead. This time the evil terrorist has even more sinister plans in store, not only do they want to make Jake pay but they are on American soil and about to release a toxin that will change America forever. When Jake finds out the extent of the plans, he and his gang of misfits make unlikely alliances in order to neutralise the threat….but will they make it on time?

    I think I may be slightly in love with Jake Bronson – he is a hero everyone can support, he cares for his friends and family, willing to do whatever it takes to make them safe. Richard Bard is fast becoming one of my favourite authors, he really knows how to weave a fun and action-packed story. He has such a way with words that you cannot help but care for and identify with the characters. Although I’m not too fond with how he ends the books – It makes me crave the next audio book, thankfully I have the next one ready to go.

    R.C.Bray is on fine form in this audio book, he has a great ability to grab the listener’s attention and not let go. I’ll be honest, I have done absolutely nothing today but listen to this audio book, that’s over 10 heavenly hours of enjoyment. The production is flawless and the addition of the music at the beginning and end of the audio book adds an air of suspense. If you haven’t yet spent any time with Mr. Bray may I suggest you start, it really is a fun experience. Start with the first book in this series though.

    Story

    I haven’t read the first Indian Hill book but I am going to. You really should start this series with the first book. In the Reckoning you pick up were the first book left off.

    Michael Talbot, our hero, is back on earth and he knows that the Progerians are coming and what they plan for our small world. They have done the same thing on many other worlds. However, they have never fought Humans before.

    This book is more about the results of the first alien attack and the aftermath of the destruction of the military and government. Without rules, chaos.

    This book shows how fast everything can fall apart. The three story lines involve Mike, now 21, Deb and Beth, and Paul. Deb and Beth are the two young women that Mike loves. They were on the alien ship with him and other humans. Paul is Mike’s best friend. They grew up together. Paul thought that Mike had been killed and he had started to put together a secret army to fight the aliens.

    The story goes back and forth from one character to the other showing what each of them has had to do to survive. Civilization has collapsed and this is humanity at its worst. Remains of National Guard and Police try to keep some balance of order but the dregs are taking over.

    Mr. Tufo has added depth to his characters in this book. You can love,hate, pity, and despise them all at the same time. Lots of action and blood shed and a last page that will leave you ……

    This audio book was read by Sean Runnette. He has a wonderful voice and his narration was exciting. He gave life to the characters with feeling. He performed each character with just the right expression and emotion. Excellent rendition.

    The audio production was also excellent. Every word was clear. No static or unwanted skips.

    Jake Bronson has been diagnosed with cancer for the second time, this time it’s terminal, during a routine MRI scan to determine his life expectancy an earthquake hits and Jake will never be the same again. His new found intellect and skills have been captured on TV and soon everyone wants to know all about Jake, no one than Luciano Battista who is a terrorist posing as a scientist, his plans will have you worried for the future. Jake and his friends travel across the world, fighting enemies and trying to save the girl – because let’s face it, what action story doesn’t need an everyday hero willing to lose everything for those he cares for. The action is non-stop. The writing is fantastic and it is hard to believe that this is a debut book by author Richard Bard. It has an ending that will have you crying out for more, luckily four more books are available at all good book stores right now.

    R.C. Bray’s performance had me cheering, smiling, crying and laughing – the delivery of some lines had me laughing out loud and thinking ‘Only Bray could have made me have that reaction’. He has such a talent for immersing the listener in the story that you just want to clear your schedule so you can listen intently to every word and enjoy the wild ride.

    I think the team up of author and narrator for this audio book is absolutely perfect and I’m so pleased to see that they are together for each of the next four audio books in the series, which are available on audible, I highly recommend you go and grab them now. I’m already warming up the audible app for book 2 – ‘The Enemy of my Enemy’ – the review will be forthcoming, keep your eyes peeled.

The barricaded cities, erected by the government to protect the remnants of civilization, have become a brutal dictatorship- causing the inhabitants within to starve, steal and claw for survival. Life behind the walls has become as terrifying as roaming the zombie-ridden landscape beyond.

    WOW….what a ride this was, this story totally sucked me in and had me at the edge of my seat. Zombie books are hit and miss with me and fortunately this one was a hit. The writing was so realistic I found myself stopping to think what I would do if I survived the zombie apocalypse. I really could have done without some of the descriptions of the killing of the zombies…..listening to some of that while driving, ugh, you can’t just close your eyes and shudder at 65MPH (okay, more like 75/80MPH).

    Nina was a very interesting character I found myself liking her, then not liking her and liking her again. She was incredibly snarky and quite bitchy and in the end one of my favorite characters. Emily grew on me and it will be interesting to see what becomes of Mikey. The ending kinda snuck up on me and I was not prepared for it to end where it did…..not quite a cliff hanger, but close. As much as I want to start the second book, I enjoyed the narration enough that I am going to wait until that book is out in audio to start.

    The narration was very good, Jennifer Reilly is a “new to me” narrator (her voice does sound very familiar to me though….) the voice she gave Nina was a good one, and she did well with the other character voices, while she did not make major changes you could still tell which character was speaking.

    If you like Zombie stories, you should really pick up this book/audio and get sucked into this world.

    Chris Paladin is a member of Seal Team 6 until a mission makes him question his life choices, he leaves the team to become a pastor, something he is very good at. Until one day CIA operative, Hannah Andrade shows up at his church and asks him to consider going back into military action, she has a special mission and needs Chris and his skills on her team. With the threat of failure meaning the U.S. may face a cyber attack of epic proportions, Chris is left with no real choice, he says goodbye to his church and once again heads into the chaotic life of a military man, all the while fighting his inner demons of events he would much rather forget.

    If you like military thrillers this audio book is definitely for you. Stephen Templin has crafted an action packed thriller. The military aspects of this audio book are so detailed it’s easy to understand that Stephen Templin is writing from experience, it definitely shows through and enhances the story. The only negative for me personally was that I felt one particular part of the storyline was mentioned a little much, not enough to stop me from listening to it again – I just felt like it was reminding the listener incase they forgot because it is a big part of the character’s storyline, I hadn’t forgot so it felt a little too much, but with that being said I will definitely be looking for more audio books from Stephen.

    Brian Troxell does a great job of grabbing the listeners attention and keeping hold of it for the length of the audio book. At times I felt like I was surrounded by enemy combatants and all hell was about to break loose, it was fun to get that immersed in the performance. The production was seamless.

    A totalitarian state doesn't just happen overnight. It's a slow, dangerous slide. 25 Perfect Days chronicles the path into a hellish future of food shortages, contaminated water, sweeping incarceration, an ultra-radical religion, and the extreme measures taken to reduce the population. Through 25 interlinked stories, each written from a different character's point of view, 25 Perfect Days captures the sacrifice, courage, and love needed to survive and eventually overcome this dystopian nightmare.

    Story

    First thoughts about the cover of 25 Perfect Days? That is a huge tunnel, the buildings in the background look like they are falling apart, and there is a huge cross with a black bird on it. Interesting. Black birds are said to be bad luck for some. Uh oh… Is that family doomed already!?

    I wish I could pin-point a main character for this story, or even a few, but I cannot. There are lots of characters, lots of mini stories for each, and they all are weirdly connected. For the majority of the story most of the characters did not seem to fit into any pattern together other than living in a horrible society. It wasn’t till I was nearing the end that they seemed to tie in, to fit. I was more than a little confused for the majority of this book till I hit the end.

    Over all, the Controllers are the antagonists for the majority of the story. They are there from a church called The Way. Imagine voting in a law that gave up control of laws, rules, people, everything to a single ruling party. That party is called The Way, which is supposedly a church. But they run on the bases of what’s good for the church is the end all be all. Take away more freedoms little by little, add in death for the greater good, death for minor rule breaking, and an underground rebellion trying to fight for their rights to simply survive.

    The narrator is Dave Thompson. I enjoyed the easy flow of his voice. He helped bring the highs and lows to each character. It is because of his voice that I continued listening to this book even after it confused me with several different storyline tie ins. The author is Mark Tullius. The book is 7hrs and 37 minutes long. This is a very violent dystopian story. It shows a great point-of-view on how society crumbles little by little when people give up control. It perfectly shows how absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    This book left me with the knowledge that I would not willingly give up my rights. No one, not even a governing body, should be allowed to control every aspect of people’s lives. It is our rights to always keep those in power in check. “Nothing strengthens authority so much as silence.” – Lenardo da Vinci.

    This is the story of a homicide detective called Ray Dempsey. He's assigned to investigate a mysterious death in a normally quiet housing development in rural New Jersey.

The story ends with a long awaited bang.

    McBride entertains with a short audio about Ray Dempsey, a detective, and his gorgeous partner. A murder scene that only a serial killer would love, Dempsey and his partner must try to determine what happened or rather who did it. they find they must solve the murder quickly as the bodies keep piling up. After multiple murders and a lucky break, Dempsey solves the case and puts away a serial killer.

    Between the author and the narrator, one can easily determine that Dempsey is a detective who is very arrogant; almost egotistic. Dempsey has his own way of solving cases – he notices patterns. Dumb luck and an overly worked keen eye solves the case.

    Too short to build a connection with the readers, the story is short and to the point. The book could be built upon easily. The author kept the book light with a few spots of humor. Dempsey reminded me of a 21st century Sherlock Holmes.

    If you need a quick distraction, this is the audio book for you. I enjoyed the writing style and hope to hear more by Mcbride.

    The narrator did an excellent job of portraying Dempsey and keeping the story going.

    The production was fine and clear.

    Having long since replaced humans in the back hallways and servants' quarters of the ultra-wealthy, new models are acquired, render their service, then are quietly deactivated when obsolete. But then we gave them the ability to learn. One household is about to find out that, while Asimov's laws are immutable, humans are about to experience an uprising of a different sort. This first, surprisingly heartfelt episode of a new series puts the listener in the shoes of the the soulless who serve.

    Story

    The future, according to Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant, will bring robot servants to run entire households, replacing maids, butlers, chefs, gardeners, and all other house help. The number of robots and modernity of them will determine how high up in the world a family is. And robots can think for themselves, solely so that they can realize and fulfill the family’s needs before they are asked to. Doesn’t sound much like Terminator, does it? Well it isn’t. The robots of the Lexington family only realize they’ve each begun to develop their own consciousness when the family wants to deactivate one of the older robots – and the majority of the “staff” have feelings about it.

    Robot Proletariat is a brilliant combination of suspense, the positives and corresponding pitfalls of technological advancements, humor, and (robot) growing pains. The humor particularly impressed me because it was reminiscent, at times, of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, a book that’s a mix of dry and absurd humor I haven’t found duplicated anywhere. I connected to the robots more than the people, something the authors did on purpose to bring out the exact opposite nature of this book from something like Terminator. I also really enjoyed the motif of robots being all-intelligent and yet not quite grasping abstract things like philosophy or human things like sex. Like I said, brilliant.

    This book also happens to be very timely in ways I unfortunately can’t specify because they would give too much away. However, let’s just say fear of death, self-preservation, and loyalty all combine in Robot Proletariat in unexpected but strictly logical ways, as befit robots.

    The voice talent, Simon Whistler, was perfect for the type of humor involved. He does surprisingly good robot impressions and captures each character very well. You can always tell which character is talking as he has clear distinctions between them all. His German accent for Mars the robot isn’t bad either. Some of his voice inflections were a bit overly repetitive and not varied enough, I did notice that, but it wasn’t too bothersome. Overall, I ended up really liking his narration and feeling that no one else could have done it better.

    Robot Proletariat is the first in a series that I can’t wait to continue. I hope the next book comes out soon – I don’t know how long I can wait until there’s a resolution to the jaw-dropping cliffhanger at the end!
