    Zombies are real. And we made them. Are you prepared for the zombie apocalypse? The Smith family is, with the help of a few marines. When an airborne "zombie" plague is released, bringing civilization to a grinding halt, the Smith family, Steven, Stacey, Sophia, and Faith, take to the Atlantic to avoid the chaos. The plan is to find a safe haven from the anarchy of infected humanity. What they discover, instead, is a sea composed of the tears of survivors and a passion for bringing hope.

    Aerindel says: "Interesting beginning that goes nowhere."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Under a Graveyard Sky to be better than the print version?

    zombie on the high sea I'm going to tell people to read this book or get it on Audible.
    Good zombie fun.....

    I drive a work van and this is how I get most of my new books in. I like to read and I cant say it would be any better ether way.


    What did you like best about this story?

    zombie on the high sea, I like it. It works!


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

    he does the female voice work much better then other male readers. When he does a female voice is not as jarring as some voice actors.


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

    yeah but if I talk about it.....it will take it away form a reader.

    A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan's California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified "dinery server" on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation: the narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other's echoes down the corridor of history.

    Would you listen to Cloud Atlas again? Why?

    YES .....there is so much in this book that you have to listen to it again. I like that they have different actors reading each part of the book. I feel it makes the stories have greater depth.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cloud Atlas?

    I really like the last two stories in the book


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

    Yes the book "Thirteen"


    Who was the most memorable character of Cloud Atlas and why?

    sonmi 451


    Any additional comments?

    read the book or listen to it but don't pass it up

    In The Sword of the Lady, Rudi Mackenzie's destiny was determined. Now he returns to Montival in the Pacific Northwest, where he will face the legions of the Prophet. To achieve victory, Rudi must assemble a coalition of those who had been his enemies a few months before and forge them into an army that will rescue his homeland. Only then will Rudi be able to come to terms with how the Sword has changed him, as well as the world, and assume his place as Artos, High King of Montival.

    In your hands is the handwritten journal depicting one man's struggle for survival. Trapped in the midst of global disaster, he must make decisions; choices that ultimately mean life, or the eternal curse to walk as one of them. Enter, if you will, into the world of the undead.

    LOVED the book, loved to have a person read it to me again. Give D.B.D.A a chance and you will enjoy it. Its more then a zombie story. I live to care about the people I'm reading about and this book did that for me.
