"One would expect the son of Mel Brooks to have a genetic predisposition to humor, and indeed, he does, and he exhibits it relentlessly here." (Publishers Weekly)
I love the seriousness with which Marc Cashman reads Max Brooks book. I don't think the experience would be the same, if the narrator did not read it with some seriousness. Seriously love it. So calm and evenly paced, but with a gravity that behooves the line of story.
The way he reads it lends itself to the fact that, when your reading it , you want to lose yourself in it. You want to believe that this is something we have to seriously be concerned about RIGHT NOW, and not in an abstract, sort of "haha, oh this author" sort of way.
Marc Cashman reads it as though he were preparing a group of people for this eventuality. It works.
I originally got this to listen on the bus and train ( fantastic for it, makes trips go quickly) but then one night, I was working late, and plugged it in to the speaker system. It was an interesting experience where I would actually stop doing anything and just listen, like I was in a lecture hall, just taking it in. Awesome.
Granted, it also made me mildly paranoid about that fact that my store would not be terribly defendable with its 180 degree giant picture windows. Hahaha.
Great reading by Marc Cashman. I highly recommend it. :)
In case that you love Zombies and want to be completely prepared, this is your guide. This is your best shot at survival. Great narration and works great with 1.5x narration speed.
I began running last year and grew tired of listening to music. Audibles gives me a chance to hear the books I have always wanted to read.
Yes. I would.
My next listen is going to be '14' by Peter Clines.
N/A. The narrator only had to read this guide. There was no real story for him to tell.
No I couldn't. I could see someone in a movie or show pulling out the guide or referring to it as a joke.
This was an ok read, but overall very bland. If you are looking to hear an actual storyline, this is not for you.
If you think you need the book for the one or two visuals don't bother. The visuals were very 'bla' so don't let that slow you down when deciding to getting this book. A great little listen and worth a credit you don't know what to do with.
I love audio books! I love listening to stories and feeling myself float away to be apart of the adventure.
It would be "are you serious?" I love a good zombie game, movie or story; but, I can't tell if this guy is serious.
This is not applicable, but I was imagining one while listening. I don't know if that counts.
I haven't, this book is just stating information, so I don't know if I was able to experience his full potential. He was a very good reader.
"Zombie-Proofing for Dummies"
I had meant to pick this one up for a while now, but when I eventually got the audio version, I couldn't even finish it. Its dry and slow. I have to say that the print version is much better given that is is full of pictures and diagrams to explain whats going on. Audio versions is missing half the fun of the read. Really best delivered in a visual format.
Sure would, it was not so much the narrators performance that got me turned off to the audio version of this book.
+ Very intriguing for the first half or so. Lots of good "advice" and info on the inevitable zombie threat.
- Joke kinda gets old half way or so through...
I didn't know that zombies walked normally under water as if it were not much of a problem...
Scientific. Nerdy. Textbook.
Fun for the first half, gets stale.
This is an INSTRUCTION manual. It's a weird listen. I just can't give a manual, especially a fictitious one, a good review.
If you are a zombie genre lover, you may like this. But again, it's a MANUAL.
Get the book, not the audiobook.
Every day I'm listenin every day I'm listenin
All of the voice actors are amazing!
The part where the movie stars are being guarded was pretty funny, and when the people had to eat each other in the north.... ALL of the moments are memorable!
I have a few times!
I have listened to this book so many time that I can mouth the words as they are saying them, but the thing that gets me is that this book gets better every time!
This is a must have survival guide. It's main premise is based on the zombie apocalypse, but can be adapted to almost any situation.
It increases your awareness to the overall world around you. You cannot just live for that day, but must think ahead. When others think of an apocalypse, they think of the day after, not the months or years after.
It is not the narrator's fault about his performance, just it is hard to narrate a survival guide.
