    A mysterious incident in Russia, a blip buried in the news - it’s the only warning humanity receives that civilization will soon be destroyed by a single, voracious virus that creates monsters of men. A lawyer, still grieving over the death of his young wife, begins to write as a form of therapy. But he never expected that his anonymous blog and journal would ultimately record humanity’s last days. Governments scramble to stop the zombie virus, people panic, so-called Safe Havens are established, the world erupts into chaos; soon it’s every man, woman, and child for themselves.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I can't recommend it as a zombie novel. It's more about one person's escape and encounters than life after the world changes. I thought the character was silly and not too smart, likely unable to survive.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Discount Armageddon by Seanan McGuire


    What about Nick Podehl’s performance did you like?

    The narration was well done. I just didn't care for the book and I love zombie novels.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.

    The morning that the world ends, Katie is getting ready for court and housewife Jenni is taking care of her family. Less than two hours later, they are fleeing for their lives from a zombie horde. Thrown together by circumstance, Jenni and Katie become a powerful zombie-killing partnership, mowing down zombies as they rescue Jenni's stepson, Jason, from an infected campground.

    Would you try another book from Rhiannon Frater and/or Cassandra Campbell?

    I found the two women main characters hard to believe. They're in peril of dying by zombies at every turn but seem more focused on their emotions. Hard to swallow. I like zombie stories but not this one.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Rhiannon Frater again?

    I read another book by Rhiannon Frater that I enjoyed so I tried this one but won't buy the second in the series.

    Young Samuel Johnson and his dachshund, Boswell, are trying to show initiative by trick-or-treating a full three days before Halloween which is how they come to witness strange goings-on at 666 Crowley Road. The Abernathys don't mean any harm by their flirtation with the underworld, but when they unknowingly call forth Satan himself, they create a gap in the universe.

    What made the experience of listening to The Gates the most enjoyable?

    Simply delightful, clever, witty, creepy and engaging. I loved every moment of this book. Elegantly written, hilarious dialogue and an amazing performance by Jonathan Cake.
