    It’s the near future and the world has descended into chaos. On the surface, everything looks the same yet the unthinkable has happened...the dead have risen. Everyone is haunted by a dead relative, friend, spouse, or stranger, and these spirits are unshakable, silent and watching. No one is safe. Governments the world over fail to deal with the epidemic, they begin to lose control of their economies and their resources. Their people. Crime is rife, and murders commonplace.

    If you could sum up The Broken Ones in three words, what would they be?

    Twists and turns


    What does Grant Cartwright bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Very good narrator, I found the accent a bit difficult to follow in the beginning but then it grew on me and I enjoyed his voice and the emotion he put into the characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Neither laugh or cry, but surprised in several places.

    If you could sum up 'Til Death Do Us Part in three words, what would they be?

    Really Good Story!!


    What other book might you compare 'Til Death Do Us Part to and why?

    The five books leading up to this one!

    Yes, many of them and he reads them the best.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, most definitely. I had to pace myself to make it last as long as possible and then when I finished I started over and listened to it again and enjoyed it just as much.

    After a horrific accident Mike wakes to find himself blind in one eye. He now sees things that others can't, and nobody will listen to him. That is, until he meets Jandilyn Hollow. Will she be able to pull him out of the depths of his despair? Can love transcend even death?

    What did you like best about The Spirit Clearing? What did you like least?

    What I like best is Sean Runnette's performance. The story was not so great and kinda boring in places.


    If you’ve listened to books by Mark Tufo before, how does this one compare?

    I love Mark Tufo books! This one seemed so very different. Actually it would have been better if it was about someone other than Michael Talbot. I have all the MT series and in this one his character was totally different. I didn't recognize him and therefore couldn't picture his face in my head.


    What does Sean Runnette bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Sean is the saving grace to this story.


    Did The Spirit Clearing inspire you to do anything?

    No.

    And the dead shall rise... Two hellish years. That's how long it's been since the hurricanes flooded the Gulf Coast, and the dead rose up from the ruins. The cities were quarantined; the infected, contained. Any unlucky survivors were left to fend for themselves. A feast for the dead. And the living shall gather... One boatload of refugees manages to make it out alive - but one passenger carries the virus. Within weeks, the zombie epidemic spreads across the globe.

    What would have made Apocalypse of the Dead better?

    The ending was so ridiculous, way too Jonestown, and really? when does freakin' pervy pedofile behavior fit into a zombie book?.....NEVER...Felt like the author was reaching and not grasping.


    Has Apocalypse of the Dead turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Oh heck no, I love good zombie stories....trouble is they are few and far between.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    didn't really have one.


    What character would you cut from Apocalypse of the Dead?

    They were all pretty pathetic and predictable


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your credit.

    Once presided over by a flamboyant Hollywood mogul during the Roaring ’20s, the magnificent West Coast property known as Roseland is now home to a reclusive billionaire financier and his faithful servants. And, for the moment, it’s also a port in the storm for Odd Thomas and his traveling companion, the inscrutably charming Annamaria. In the wake of Odd’s most recent clash with lethal adversaries, the opulent manor’s comforts should be welcome. But there’s far more to Roseland than meets even the extraordinary eye of Odd, who soon suspects it may be more hell than haven.

    Would you listen to Odd Apocalypse again? Why?

    I probably will. I usually listen to all of them twice.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Well, by the time I got to the ending, I was kinda glad it was over. This was not my favorite Odd adventure.


    What about David Aaron Baker’s performance did you like?

    I love DAB, he IS Odd Thomas. He always does an outstanding performance.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really, as stated earlier, a little bummed about this one.


    Any additional comments?

    It's still decent of course, after all it is Odd Thomas!!

    Survivors is the all-new soul-shattering climax to the postapocalyptic trilogy, featuring a deadly virus, military action, global devastation - and zombies. A lot can change in three months: Wars can be decided, nations can be forged...or entire species can be brought to the brink of annihilation. The Morningstar Virus, an incredibly virulent disease, has swept the face of the planet, infecting billions. The infected hosts rampage, attacking anything that remains uninfected.

    All the same


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    not really, kind of neutral

    It was good, but I'll have to relisten to the entire series again.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Mike as always, followed by BT as a close second.


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

    All the Mark Tufo books read by Sean Runnette. He makes the story come alive.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I almost did.


    Any additional comments?

    Just waiting for the 6th installment now. The story was great but left things unfinished, so I can only assume there will be another episode to this story.

    Story

    I liked this story because the characters were real. It wasn't all happiness and some of the characters that seemed very significant didn't make it. So even though they died, they were given rich descriptions so you end up liking them just to lose them. That's a little more realistic to me.
