A solid listen. Well written and decently narrated. It takes the idea of the zombie apocalypse and injects a bit more humanity into the creatures than is usually seen.
World War Z - The Mountain and The City is a serialized novel, so each chapter feels more like an individual episode than chapters often do. Because of this, the read style is similar to WWZ, in which several different stories are told woven together from an almost journal-style perspective. TMATC is certainly more of a traditional narrative, but still felt like a similar read to WWZ.
The performance didn't stand out as anything particularly memorable to me.
Yes. The second half of the book actually takes a pretty steep decent into some pretty emotionally compelling material.
A very interesting read. It starts off seeming to be a staple zombie apocalypse story. It doesn't take long to discover that there is more to the creatures in The Mountain and The City than just mindless walking corpses. The story does a great job of giving the reader (listener) perspective from several different viewpoints. I would certainly recommend giving this a read if you're into post-apocalyptic or zombie literature, you might just find something you haven't seen before.I wish I had known that the novel was a serial before I went into it. After finding out that that was the case, the pacing made a lot more sense. There are a lot of climactic moments through the novel, and I kept thinking it was about to end, only to notice that there was a ton more. This was always a pleasant surprise, as the story kept getting better, but I did think it was a little strange to start with.
