Publisher's Summary

A prison doctor injects a condemned serial killer with a formula designed to keep his consciousness awake while his body rots in the grave. But all drugs have unforeseen side-effects. Before he can be buried, the killer wakes up. Hungry. Infected. Contagious. This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang… but a bite.

    I like history and biography, novels too. I do have a thing for zombie books as well. I need crappy thrillers now and then.

    "Light on Zombies"

    I liked Maberry's Patient Zero. This one gets stuck in character development. I'm a few hours into the audio book and I just haven't seen enough zombies. I doubt I ca finish this.

    "Magnificent"

    Dead of Night is superb. Scary as hell, it will make you cheer for the heroes and fear the monsters. You will not be able to put the book down.l

    "Riveting listen"

    I've read most if not all of the Jonathan Maberry books but hadn't stumbled on this one until I was done with the series. It was difficult at first because the narrators voice had a droning sound to it in my head that was almost painful. But I decided to continue listening because it was so highly recommended and once the story took off I heard the voice less and became riveted by the story. It meant all of my expectations and I can't wait to get to the second book. I highly recommend this story.

    "If only Oliver Wyman or Ray Porter had been"

    available to lend their vocal talents to this story. Good plot, good character development but man narration is the key. I'll stay away from this narrator. IMHO the lack of subtle changes to shift characters ruined it for me. PeacE

    Narrators performance wasn't very good. All his voices sound the same for each character. Storyline is pretty predictable but entertaining.

    "Not Maberry's"

    I love Maberry's Joe Ledger series and I've listened to them more than once. This book is just okay. The story is the reaction of each and every one of the small town's citizens reaction to the fact of zombies in the town. EVERY SINGLE PERSON. The book moves slow because we have to know what every person thinks about seeing the impossible. I don't think I'll finish it.

    "Another epic Maberry treat!"

    Downloading the second book now. I wondered what Maberry would do after the Joe Ledger books. I'm glad I know the answer. I really liked the change in direction of protagonist "Dez" Desdemona Fox away from Joseph Francis Ledger. Maberry's touch is not a "feminized" machismo rehash. One could say of the genre, "been there, done that, got the mangled blood-soaked t-shirt but Maberry continues to give us stuff that never elicits the exhaled groan of, "Oh, please!"
    William Dufris is fantastic! (Stephenson's Cryptonomicon is a must listen as well as Scalzi's works) Dufris could read take-out menus and it would be auditory gold.
    I'm glad I can add Maberry to my list of authors that never disappoint and am anxious to see what new creation is unleashed from their minds.

    "bought book 2"
    Would you listen to Dead of Night again? Why?

    Yes, mainly because sometimes I feel like I missed something because of the times that I listen.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The camera man. Just liked him he had the most sense.


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

    No never have. At first I wasn't sure I was gonna be ok with his performance I am very picky. ..but as the story progressed I decided I was ok with it.


    If you could take any character from Dead of Night out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Billy trout don't know why


    Any additional comments?

    The book gave a different take on how the apocalypse would start.

    "Don't Expect Shakespeare, But It's OK To Pass Time"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The plot sounded promising - a zombie outbreak. So much could be covered. But I felt that this book was very slow paced. And also, how many zombies do you need to see before you realize they're... uh... zombies? The writing style was also different to what I was used to. Having listened to a lot of Brandon Sanderson, Robert Jordan and so on, I was surprised at how different this was. I guess this was a little like getting a trashy novel out, ha ha! But I don't regret, it - I did listen to it all the way through.


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

    I actually really liked the ending. That surprised me because I didn't really think I'd get to the end. But it kept my attention, and the ending actually made me think, 'I'd like to know what happens next'.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I wasn't keen on the narrator but I did listen to the whole book, so I guess he can't have been that bad.
