I have a 50 minute commute. This is a great relaxing and fun read. The author's voice is wonderful and I love the vignettes. If traffic gets a little heavy, or somebody cuts me off, it doesnt seem to be important compared to the wonderful stories' flow. Sometimes I get to work and have to stay in the car a little longer to get to a natural pause in these lively stories.
It started out a little weird when the living dead starting showing up, but got to be tremendous fun and intrigue. I'm about 75% through with the book and almost look forward to driving 50 minutes to a job that has become dreadful.
Clever and excellent use of the language and moves well.
I found the writing tedious, the plot silly, the characters self absorbed. The only fun part of the listen was deciphering British speak.
Man - I am having a great time with audible.com and my OTIS thingy. I have listened to about 10 books so far during commutes and only one was a stinker. Enders Game is wonderful, and I don't really dig Science Fiction much any more. I did as a kid, but now I am really into political intrigue and legal intrigue novels. This book is great and you will enjoy it.
I found the plot to be thin. Kept hoping for things to pick up, but all in all a very disappointing book.
This book was devoid of any notion of a plot. It was just a mix of macho killings, nuclear and tactical and hand to hand. Waste of time - amateurish except perhaps for details of submarine weaponry. But that has been done and done better before.
