    Story
    "surprisingly good"
    Which character – as performed by Robert Martinez – was your favorite?

    the narration was great. martinez's portrayal of madd dog mccall was believable and authentic. he sounded gruff and tough as expected of an infamous wanted man. i was brought into the old west by his performance.


    Any additional comments?


    the old west meets zombies...i wasn't too sure about that mix of genres, but i decided to give it a shot, and i'm glad i did!

    at first i was thinking...mad dog mccall, the infamous outlaw? ok. kind of cheesey and cliche. but what you end up with is a great character with a lot of depth. i was surprised by his back story. karen is also another good character, not just your typical tough woman in the old west.

    as the story opens, mccall is in the town jail. karen is at the brothel, when they hear a commotion outside. as the patrons rush to see what the fuss is all about, they see 2 men attacking a woman. to their shock, the 2 men are biting her and ripping chunks of flesh from her. the patrons rush out and try to tell the men to stop. the deputy sheriff arrives. he's young and green and orders the men to stop or he'll shoot. his yelling attracts the attention of the 2 dead men. when they stand, the deputy sheriff and the patrons notice these 2 disheveled men have arrows sticking out of them, and one even has a tomahawk embedded in his chest. as they approach the deputy, he shoots them in the chest, but nothing happens. as the zombies descend upon the deputy, a few of the patrons help wrestle the zombies off of him. hearing the gunshots, the sheriff leaves the jail house to see what the heck is happening. when the sheriff arrives, the patrons are managing to hold the zombies down, but it hasn't been without consequences. a few complain to the sheriff that these weirdos bit them. the sheriff, a real stickler for the law, orders the 2 strangers to be handcuffed so they can be thrown in jail to cool off.

    needless to say, those bitten begin to change and all hell breaks loose!

    all 3 parts of this story are good. mccall and karen are good characters that actually have depth. there's also a good bad guy in this story, and he's not the usual type.

    there's a lot of good zombie battling throughout this story. so, don't be put off by the mix of genres. it's actually well done!

    Story
    "Zombie Western?"
    Would you try another book from Jason Brant and/or Robert Martinez?

    Yes I would give this combination another go. When the story was a little ordinary, Martinez was able to carry it through. I would say that with most Martinez narrated books the speed can easily be increased to 1.25x and 1.5x so if you were after a 13hour long story you might be disappointed.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jason Brant? Why or why not?

    After reading the first part in this omnibus I would have said 'no way would I waste money on another Jason Brant book'. But then the story took off! The last two thirds of this book was great and I couldn't put it down. The ending was a surprise, and left me wanting more story.

    Despite the first part being a bit of a chore, the narration was good enough to keep me going.

    In the future I would happily exchange my hard earned cash for any book from Jason Brant as long as it had a top narrator like Robert Martinez or a R C Bray.

    Perhaps my thoughts and feelings about the start of the story might have been influenced by the fact that I had just finished listening to 'Torment' by Jeremy Bishop which is 'unique' in the zombie world! Perhaps I was comparing and contrasting them too much rather than taking 'West of Hell' on its own merit.


    Did Robert Martinez do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The story really has two main characters, Karen a prostitute and McCall a good guy outlaw. Martinez doesn't try to narrate in a woman's voice (which is a relief) He does however change his voice for McCall's voice. In that he does an excellent job!


    Did West of Hell Omnibus Edition inspire you to do anything?

    The story certainly did not inspire me to do anything. But I don't think it ever was an intention of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I am little concern at how many books I am now purchasing which can easily be sped up in speed to 1.5x without any problems. It certainly makes a bit of a mockery of the actual listening time given for any title
