    The year is 2025. The Running Man is America's favorite television game show. Ben Richards is the program's latest contestant-and the Hunters' latest target in a rigged game of death.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Running Man to be better than the print version?

    Never read the printed version, but Kevin Kenerly certainly adds to the enjoyment of the experience.


    What other book might you compare The Running Man to and why?

    It's a bit like Blade Runner the movie but with more plausible and intense twists and turns.


    Have you listened to any of Kevin Kenerly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Never listened to him prior but he does a great job with this one. He has an exciting fast pace voice and actually acts out the intensity (not overing doing, just to boost the drama)


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending. Won't spoil it but the detail of the events are intense... also the final conclusion is just perfect and resolves the book exactly how it needs to be concluded.


    Any additional comments?

    Skip the prelude!!! They do spoil the book: skip to the 13 minute mark.

    The Zombie Survival Guide is your key to survival against the hordes of undead who may be stalking you right now. Exhaustively comprehensive, this book covers everything you need to know, including how to understand zombie physiology and behavior, the most effective defense tactics and weaponry, ways to outfit your home for a long siege, and how to survive and adapt in any territory or terrain.

    What did you like best about The Zombie Survival Guide? What did you like least?

    + Very intriguing for the first half or so. Lots of good "advice" and info on the inevitable zombie threat.

    - Joke kinda gets old half way or so through...


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Zombie Survival Guide?

    I didn't know that zombies walked normally under water as if it were not much of a problem...


    What three words best describe Marc Cashman’s performance?

    Scientific. Nerdy. Textbook.


    Did The Zombie Survival Guide inspire you to do anything?

    Prepare....


    Any additional comments?

    Fun for the first half, gets stale.
