    Story
    "Interesting story very different"
    What did you like best about Lord John and the Plague of Zombies? What did you like least?

    It was not what I was expecting from Diana Gabaldon, It had the horror paranormal quirkiness. If You're not into zombies, and para-normal you won't like this story. I have enjoyed all of the "Highlander" and "Lord John" series....This is just very different and has is not for everyone who likes Ms Gabaldon's books


    What did you like best about this story?

    It showed that Ms Gabaldon can stretch her writing to go to the bizarre. I found it really interesting, also how Lord John handled himself under very stressful situations.


    What does Jeff Woodman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think he did the narration very well the accents of the Jamaicans, British, and Scots were done very well. He was also able to express emotion in his voice which is important.


    Was Lord John and the Plague of Zombies worth the listening time?

    I enjoyed it because I enjoy paranormal, horror, vampire, zombie, werewolf, etc type stories. I love Jim Butcher, Simon Green, C. Harris, etc. great writers of paranormal fantasy.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're looking for the dashing romantic Lord John he's still the man but in a very difficult circumstance, and there is sexual innuendo, but not the romantic trysts of other stories. He has a mission to get a problem solved in Jamaica. Solve a murder, and get his soldiers back, from a group who they think are making zombies. There is a twist here and the ultimate bottom line is the British were the ones doing wrong. If you don't like para-normal stay away from this one. otherwise give it a try.

    Story
    "muntu -The religion-Zombies"

    this book held an accuracy of the Ancient African religion of Muntu. I have studied this with much interest and accuracy. I am pleased that Diana c. Upheld her research for such accuracy. again sad to say I was left yearning to hear mor about "The Witch" and her do,aim on the local Natives.But that's another story. :)

    "Lord John"

    These books are wonderful to fill the gap between The Outlander Series... Anything by Diana Ganaldon is worth the read.
