    "Sucked"

    This booked sucked on so many levels. So many examples could I give. Ok, here's one: a British writer trying to set his work in the U.S. We don't have lorries here, we call them trucks. The descriptions of the military were horrible...the entire work felt like the author did not care to do any research before writing to make the work at least a little realistic and believable. And then there was the story. The plot and story line sucked too. It felt like, at times, the characters were actually trying to get themselves killed just to get out of the book.

    "Too Hard to Follow"

    I'm not sure if it was the narrator or the author, but the plot was very hard to follow. I couldn't tell where the change of scenes took place, so I was never sure what was happening to whom. I listened through it twice, and I'm still confused. It was wonderfully descriptive for a zombie book and each scene had plenty of chilling encouters with the undead. But as I couldn't follow who was who or where they were, it was more like a series of Zombie encounter vinettes rather than a cohesive whole.

    "Waste of money"

    Didn't care for the reader and the way he did the voices. Also, it was like he was quickly reading a script, absolutely no pauses. Was hard to determine when a new scene starts or ends, takes a few sentences to determine a new scene has begun. Also, I know this is a short story but way to much was trying to be covered to do any of it justice. It should have covered a smaller plot; it was like an extremely abridged novel where everything was edited out except the barebone outline of the story. The storytelling itself was awful, the reading was even worse. I think they were going for fast paced and suspenseful, it was just annoying to hear and difficult to visualize the scenes with the constant stream of narration that gave no clue that the entire scene has just changed to a completely different environment.

    "Poor"

    Ver poor, lacks much plot, no characterisation and feels like it was written for someones gcse...If your lloking for a good zombie peice i would suggest day by day armageddon on here or the morningstar novels. Maybe one day world war z will be added but till then I really have to say this is one to avoid v!

    "Annoying narration"

    Typical zombietale with no greater surprises if you know the genre well.
    Narration is really annoying. Told like its some kind of lighthearted comedy and it really takes out all the horror of the story.

    "Great Horror zombie audio"

    This Audio stands out in a saturated sub-genre. Nice Narration, he reminded me of Burton on War of the Worlds, background music is great without being intrusive. Sound effects are okay.
    The story is fast paced with some genuine creepy moments.
    If you like Zombies Romero style this is worth downloading and one to revisit.
