I listened to the audiobook on this one, it was narrated by numerous narrators (giving each character a voice). The production was good and the audio quality was also good.
The book was a super quick read (or listen). It only took about an hour to finish. It starts out as a total rip-off of "The Social Network" I mean almost line for line -- scene for scene, but I then read that it was meant to be a satire -- so I understood why the rip off.
The story follows a programmer who creates an online dating site for zombies, and a few of its users (and their friends). Even zombies want to find love! There is some really funny banter within the different groups and it weaved quickly between the different characters to form a fun, funny and unique piece of fiction
If you're looking for a super quick read that involves zombies and scenes from the social network -- this book is for you.
I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for my honest review.
I prefer listening to audiobooks more than music.
Received a free copy of this audio book from publisher/author/narrator in exchange for an honest review.
I'm not at into watching/reading anything related to zombies but this one was very funny.
It's a tiny short story about 4 zombies Greg, Amy, Zed and Stef in a post-apocalyptic world where Greg and Amy meet/skull time through an app called ZDate created by Gary. It's about their adventures and difficulties they face during this. There is a tinge of humor about what these zombies talk and what difficulties you'd face on dating a zombie.
The narration was excellent by all the characters.
Gary is a programmer and has been hired by zombies to create a zombie dating website for them. Gary is not too enthused at first, but then begins to see the monetary advantages to such a website. Meanwhile, Greg and Amy have met through the website and are trying to meet in real zombie life.
This was a fun audiobook with a fun cast. There are basically only 5 characters – Gary (evil programmer), Amy (hottie zombie), Greg (another hottie zombie), Stef (Amy’s BFF who would like to be more), and Zed (Greg’s wingman). Being zombiefied is just a new way of life that the young generation has gotten use to. Zombies hold jobs, go to college, and date. Hence, the need for a zombies-only dating site.
The story is told in a humorous fashion, often breaking that fourth wall and talking directly to the listener. Occasionally, the humor was a little overdone, a little over accentuated. But for the most part I was found it amusing and engaging.
My favorite character was Stef (with Gary being a close second). Stef chose to go zombie in order to stay friends with Amy. And I do believe Stef wouldn’t mind if things became more than friendly. Alas, I think she is in for heartache in the future as Amy seems completely oblivious.
Gary was fun partly because he is still human and partly because he is an ass. He really doesn’t like zombies and thinks of them as subhuman. Yet he will take their money to go start a website. He continues to be a jerk throughout the story, but his jerkscapades grow proportionately throughout this short tale. I loved the anticipation of watching him fall!
I received a copy of this audiobook at no cost from one of the narrators (via the GoodReads Audiobooks group) in exchange for an honest review.
Narration: The narration was tip top on this book. The full cast, not something you usually see for such a short story, really made this book work. Obviously, each character had their own distinct voice and each narrator did a great job of giving them attitude and emotions (even the zombie characters).
I honestly didn't think I was going to like this book. And I'm glad I was wrong and gave it the chance it deserved :)
I grinned from ear-to-ear, being very careful to keep my jaw attached.
All of the narrators did a wonderful job bringing the characters to unlife!
