This was such fun! I mean, Zombies on the moon!! How awesome is that??
When communications between Earth and Grand Galaxies amusement park ceases, Commander ‘Boss’ Sharman and his crew are sent to investigate and see what's happened. They arrive to a seemingly abandoned park, well apart from the blood thirsty monsters shadowing their every move.
I think if you go into this with no expectations then you will enjoy it more. As I said, it's a story of Zombies on the moon! We also have Robots gone wild ;) It's pure B list movie stuff, but o much fun to listen to.
The characters and plot were well written and developed. Each of the few characters we deal with here were awesome. I really liked Lexi. Her dad is Boss, but she holds her own throughout the story. She is brave, smart and kick ass.
The plot was fast paced. I loved the idea of an amusement park on the moon, how cool would that be!! Lol. The way the virus came to be on the moon is quite believable, (if you can suspend normal belief for a while ;) ) and was really fun to read. This is the first book I've read by this author, but it won't be my last!!
Nigel Patterson brought the book alive. He gave each character their own tone and had the right tone for the right situation.
*I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affects my thoughts.*
I love almost anything post-apocalyptic, zombie, scifi, ect. Always looking for some new earhole entertainment!
This was great! Space zombies!!! Great concept for a story. I loved it! I almost wish it was a bit longer. The narrator did a great job with the different voices and accents!
The moon has an amusement park, a place for fun and enjoyment. Then all contact is lost and a team is sent to investigate. What they find is not fun or enjoyable!!! A good short story, read very well by Nigel Patterson.
Having listened to Nigel's books before, I knew it would be a polished performance. Unlike, previous books from Nigel, I had not read this one and he brought it to life nicely.
I recommend this book, as well as others by Nigel.

It started out interesting, and then it turned into just another zombie story, If I had known that before I started reading, It was a fast and easy read I'm a fan of most of the zombie stories. and enjoyed this audiobook
Love the pace the author and narrator set for this story. Don't want to give away the storyline but space zombies and human nature very believable.

Once I figured out the book was a space zombie story it wasn't hard to figure out how it would end. The one difference was the British take on the story. Unlike American zombie stories were the heroes hold up with a gun you find the characters looking for alternate weapons most of the time. The one and only twist on the normal zombie story is why the park was there at the start of the zombie outbreak, but this was really just a minor plot in the whole story. Overall it was a good story but don't expect surprise plot lines.
Love listening to audio books.
I've listened to many - I'd put it somewhere in the middle of the pack.
I thought the author did a good job of inserting moments of humor and humanity - in an otherwise terrifying scenario. The good guys take time to crack wise from time to time while they are in life and death situations.
The narration was tops. I thought his ability to differentiate his characters was good. His accent for the Russian was great. A few times I thought his American English was off a bit, but most times very believable. Obviously, his British characters were great. His narrator voice is great - pacing superb. Professional production.
Space Zombies Rock the Moon!
I received this audiobook free in exchange for an honest review. I've done that. I am a big fan of Iain Rob Wright - having read most of his books. This was not my favorite - but still very good. Well worth reading & listening to.
I haven't listened to many audiobooks yet, I'm new at this, but 2389 is a decent audiobook. It was a bit short, as is the actual book. I think a few more chapters might have helped the storyline.
Boss and Lexi were my favorite characters but I would've liked a little more interaction/ conflict between the two.
Nigel Patterson did an excellent job on this audiobook, and all the characters were easily identifiable. I liked Lexi the best though, with Boss a close second.
I'm a big fan of Iain Rob Wright's books and this is my first audiobook of his works, but surely not the last. I will most definitely revisit my favorite books of his in audiobook format.
2389 is a story about an amusement park built on the moon. Communication with the park is lost and a team goes up to determine the problem. As the team investigates strange happenings, they soon find out they might not be able to return home.
I'd like to say I loved this story the way I love all of this author's work, but it just didn't do it for me. I had a hard time getting into 2389 and it barely held my interest, despite Patterson's near-perfect narration. I found the story to be too far-fetched and hokey, but it is still good for a little entertainment.
As always, Nigel Patterson narrates the story brilliantly. He has a pleasant voice that I could listen to all day and his production quality is second to none.
If you're a Patterson fan, this is one you don't want to miss, but if you're looking for a great horror story, stick with some of IRW's other books.
"Zombies in space"
The great narration by Nigel Patterson and the story telling of Iain Rob Wright make this audio better than the print version for me.
Great narration which brings the story and the characters to life.
The ending are you ever free?
