I must say this is a good story, I listened to the first 'The Infection' and then immediately on to this one and very much enjoyed the journey through the two. Mr DiLouie created some interesting characters and they were well presented by Peter Ganim.
The 'baddies' those creatures were very well described and believable although I think the screeching Mr. Ganim did of the creatures had me rushing for the volume control, but still a good effort.
I found the human characters to have a variety of different personalities which I could believe in. (read/listen to the book to understand that comment)
Overall, I enjoyed the ride, the story is excellent and the narration excellent.
A fine listen
Yes and was annoyed I could not.
I have really enjoyed this series and do certainly recommend it to my audible loving post apocalyptic fellow readers (listeners)
You will not be disappointed.
I liked the timely of the book, the story did not rush and done not push too much at you. I could envisage that in an actual pandemic many of the stories in this book would or could occur and that I found made this book interesting.
A very good job, well don.
I liked the timely in this book, how the timely made the book more believable. I was never bored or felt I had Heard (read) this type before.
Probably the top ten of post apocalyptic books list, maybe top five.
Good voice, clear and concise, easy to listen too.
A good book, different from the 'standard' apocalyptic books much more story, much more emotion. I would like more Writer and Narrator
Yes, it is a detailed and descriptive story. Listen carefully.
This is unlikely many disaster books, more detail, paced in reality in real time even. Which is better as it aids to the believability.
I think most of the characters but do like the lead Alec and in particular his wife. Someone I would not want to upset.
Yes and very nearly did.
A good book, I read the Jakarta Pandemic which is the book that got me interested in Steven Konkoly's writing. I liked that as it was very detailed (as I will say in review of that book) so I expected much the same in this book and found it excellent in the style.
John David Farrell did an excellent job
Absolutely and will, the story is so well woven, so well interloping that I need too so to ensure I got every inch of the story out.
Most certainly Stephen King's The Stand. I had thought nothing could compare to that book but Swan Song does come close. How close? Very close.
Leave as is, this is perfectly titled
Did you love the Stand, then Swan Song is a book you must read/Listen too.
I came across this after the author's Yesterday's Gone Series which I enjoyed however not as much as I would have liked. However, I took the plunge and purchased Z 2134 and was pleased I did so. This is the sort of book you just knew from half way through there would be more and I had the hope it would keep me interested and this book does it. I am now into book two and am glad I started.
Several, I like some of the back stories, some of the characters
Enjoyable and easy to listen too.
I can see this as described 'Hunger Games with Zombies' but also a little Brave New World or 1984. That look of the future we all hope does not happen.
Yes, I will listen to all three again as I enjoyed each twist and turn
I enjoyed all the characters, although Pritt stands out as does the cat. Boy did that cat go through a lot of pain too.
Very enjoyable, he has a good voice for different characters and although he could have done I think he played the reverend particularly well
zombies, pirates, a nun, mad reverends, white supremacists and North Koreans this has it all.
Very enjoyable and I have enjoyed all three books and will very soon listen to all three together for the thrill of the journey
This is a three book saga and kept me interested. It is well written and a fun ride. Emily is tough, fun and someone you want around at the end of the world. our narrator Emily Beresford does an excellent job. Enjoy this three book story as one long ride, it is worth it.
Duke Fontaine is excellent he made the journey enjoyable
This is book three of the series and I highly recommend getting all three and enjoy them together. They are interwoven, well written and well narrated. I was cautious at first driven off by the author name but the lesson learned, never judge a book by the cover is how I felt after listening. Three very worthy books with worthy narrator. I hope there is a book four.
What is there not to love about this story, inspired so many copies, so many versions in book and movies. It has an imagination that inspires.
I just love this man's voice. It always sounds like he is having fun.
Another great book read by a great narrator.
