    When 16-year-old Xander's older brother, Moto, left him at Vandenberg Airforce Base he only had one request - don't leave, no matter what. But there was no way he could have known that zombies would gather in groups big enough to knock down walls, and take out entire buildings full of people. That was before the rise of the horde! Now Xander is on the run, fleeing south to Port Hueneme to locate his brother, with nothing but his martial arts training and the katana blade left to him.

    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    This was rated as four stars by someone so i was expecting a decent book. This is not it. It is unoriginal and boring. It seems to have copied most pieces of dialog and plot from other books. If there's an original thought I didn't find it.

    First time novelist, Patrick D'Orazio, takes us on a journey that follows the path of the everyman, Jeff Blaine, in the days after the end of the world. Six weeks have passed since the virus ravaged the world's population and in that time most of humanity has passed into shadow, turning into corrupt, rotting flesh eaters that known only pain and hunger as they attempt to destroy the remaining members of the human race. Jeff has lost everything, including much of his desire to continue surviving in this hell on earth.

    What disappointed you about Comes the Dark?

    It has no story line, There is a beginning but no middle & no end. I kept listening, waiting for the story to start, but it just ended. I actually went back and played the end again, because it was so abrupt, I thought something had went wrong with my copy. It ended like some someone put a line after a paragraph and said that's the end, we'll put the rest in the next book. Presumably, that's where the story is too.There is no depth to these characters. I know there's not a lot to work with for the performer, but it could have been done better. The voices and accents were just irritating.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jim Cooper’s performances?

    Maybe


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your time and money buying this. I'll be returning my copy.
