    An epidemic has killed off most humans, turning the rest into beasts with sharp nails, keen senses and an insatiable hunger. Now, years later, a solitary survivor hides in a trailer above a dead city. This is life with the door and windows taped shut, where survival comes down to two, simple rules: stay quiet, and protect the air.

    AudioBookReviewer says: "Not what I was expecting"
    "A fresh take on the zombie theme"

    Where does The Mountain and The City rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What other book might you compare The Mountain and The City to and why?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Victoria Smart – was your favorite?

    The performance didn't stand out as anything particularly memorable to me.


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

    Yes. The second half of the book actually takes a pretty steep decent into some pretty emotionally compelling material.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
