I've read or listened to the entire Zombie Fallout series so far. It's fast paced and great for mindless reading/listening. It's getting a little out there in terms of fiction at this point but it's still entertaining and not too ridiculous. If you've read "The Stand" it has a similar but different twist. It's hard to explain without spoilers but if you've read this far into the series I'm sure you saw it coming.
It moves fast and keeps the pace.
Grover Gardner maybe. Even though his pace is too slow, his ability to relay characters is much better and would make the main character much less annoying.
Nope, it was just entertaining.
If you like the Post-Apocalyptic Zombie Survival genre it's worth listening. Put the speed at x1.5 and push through the beginning, you'll be hooked.
Yes. It's a great mix of what I like about this genre even though it doesn't quite fit in completely. It gets a bit "fantastical" with the twist but it makes it unique and keeps you interested. The story is great, characters are developed in an entertaining way and it moves at a changing pace so it's doesn't get monotonous (shoot, run, repeat).
He did a great job differentiating the characters. With so many characters he made it easier to keep them straight. I'm terrible with remembering names and who did what so having an actual difference in tone and timbre was great.
Grover narrates a little slow so turn the speed up to x1.5 and it makes the story easier to stick with. If you're like me and love "Post-apocalyptic" books it's a good read/listen. I like the survival aspect of these books, this one doesn't focus solely on it but the story is good enough that you don't miss it. I listen on my commute and I had a tough time turning it off to head into the office or found myself driving the speed limit home so I could get a few more minutes in.
It's semi-realistic in terms of the survival aspects but not so realistic that it gets tiresome. The story-line is going to take an odd turn, I could already tell about half-way through. Reminds me of "The Stand" in that sense. The pace was fast, a lot of action right away and an interesting choice of main character.
Henry the bulldog. I don't know why, the author just has a funny and accurate way of describing his actions.
Not really. Many of the characters sound the same and the accent isn't consistent. I couldn't do better but I don't think he's the best fit.
Not really. The relationship between husband and wife is hilarious and stays lighthearted which is a little ridiculous but adds a good element to the story.
If you can get past the "Mid-western" stereotypes the narrator is actually likable. It's the view point of someone from the Baby Boomer generation who grew up in the midwest. As much as I hate to admit it, it's fairly accurate.
