I liked the things about this story that were different from the typical zombie junk. Anytime an author can take a subject that has been so overdone and make me see it from a different perspective, it's a good thing. A lot of things about the story were unexpected, like the main character, Dannie. It's a lengthy listen. It starts slow, even a bit dull at first. I had to double check to make sure I was reading the right story because it took a while to get to the zombie stuff, but once things got going, I thought the story was pretty good. The ending was interesting enough that I am actually looking forward to the sequel.
I didn't like the way this was put together. The way it keeps changing prose is something I do not like. I didn't connect with most of the characters and they spend a lot of time not realizing what danger they are in despite what they are seeing with their own eyes and hearing around them. I didn't really connect with the majority of the characters and overall, it was just unsatisfying.
I love this entire series and none of the books have been a disappointment, they have all been a wild ride. Gus returns in book 4 but a much different Gus than we have come to know. This is the first time we get to see how Gus interacts with lots of other people and it was a shock to see how vulnerable the character could be. No spoilers, you won't be disappointed. Check it out.
I'm a fan of this series, but I was not a fan of this individual story. I don't really think it added much to the overall tale and it felt like it was only "filler" to drag the series out. I would like to know how the whole story plays out but I feel as if this material could have been left out all together.
I really liked the first story in this series. However, it almost felt like this one was written by someone else. I was not a huge fan of the narration either. I didn't like Sandra Wolfe as a character and overall, just don't like the direction that this 2nd book is taking the story. Unsure if I will continue to the 3rd or not. I didn't think this was a good follow up to Edward's story and was disappointed overall.
I had to stop listening to this again and again because I felt like I was missing something. But no, I verified that this is the first book in the series. These characters must have come from elsewhere, they have a history because there is too much happening or too much that has happened that I do not understand for this to be book 1. The other very difficult thing with this listen is that Mike and Jack, sound exactly the same. The only differentiated voice is Trip's. Not a favorite. Might actually return it.
I've enjoyed this series, however, after three listens I have just a bit of an issue with the main character, Lance. I don't understand how he can still, three books in, be so stupid. He's a very like able character, but he's gotten no smarter as this saga continues and I really struggle with that. It's like the author has to keep him pretty dense in order to create drama. I also have to mention that I am so confused that Cass is always reflected on the cover for these books. She's not the main character and the story is not told from her perspective. Those are just my petty gripes. Overall, it's a good listen and the characters are enjoyable. A little over 6 hours each so they're pretty quick hits as well.
Another story to add to the small group of books that tell the zombie tale from a different perspective and that's why I liked it. Not overwhelmingly good but if you need a little change from the typical stuff you've read in the genre give it a try.
I love this entire series and have listened to each of them with my family. Each of the stories mature, you just can't help following this family along through all of their trials. Finally in book 3, they continue their journey to finally find their home land. Great for all ages. It's something you will put in that special place for all-time favorites.
Yes, it's about zombies, but even they won't feel familiar to you in this story. The entire take on the genre, the perspective, the main character are so A typical, you are going to be begging for more by the end of it. The character development, is quite wonderful. Angel is a character you want to get to know. The beauty of it is that, there's so much potential for her to grow and mature and that equals so much material for a long and lovely friendship between this character and the reader. Loved it.
It's very easy for me to get interested in anything narrated by R.C. Bray which is really the only reason I decided to check this out. I've read the sequels to this and I am glad I did. What I can tell you is that, it's a creepy little story, but it's a very nice introduction to a great character. I like Gus and I'm sure that you're going to want more than the little tidbit The Hospital will provide. So carry on when done. The Mountain Man awaits.
