    Story
    "Awesome! Fantastic! Amazing! (but the ending?)"

    Hugely enjoyable story. Gruesome, gory and gripping. I loved the story but the narration ever so slightly over the top in some places. But hey that sort of added to the fun. I think the best book in the series so far. Loved the Mother Night character. And Ghost and his delicate eating habits. (I think Ghost should pair off with Maggie, from 'Suspect'. By Robert Crais - I think)

    But the ending seemed a bit rushed. The only let down. Am really looking forward to the next book. An 'appointment to listen'!

    A job well done Mr Author and Narrator.

    Story
    "Outstanding!"
    What did you like best about this story?

    This book may have been the best of the series, and that is saying a lot! The constant intensity of the story asked me wondering HOW IN THE WORLD the villain was going to be defeated. But Jonathan Maberry led to the story to a resolution that was hugely exciting, while maintaining its sensibility. Another thing that I really liked about this story was that we got a couple of glimpses of Joe Ledger as seen through the eyes of other characters. Though I had a good picture in my mind of who the Joe Ledger character is, this view helped round out that picture.


    Have you listened to any of Ray Porter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I'm really glad that Ray Porter stayed on for the entirety of this series. His representation of Joe Ledger is key to the picture I've formed in my head, and the way he adds emotion to the entire reading really nails the story's ideas into my head. At no time does Ray Porter become bland or seem disinterested. He reads with energy and emotion the whole way through.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yeah. This book had several moments where I found myself on the edge of my seat, the rest of the world tuned out, and my only focus on the story. Also, some of the interactions towards the end of the book between Junie and Joe, and between Rudy and Joe were very deep and emotional.

    "BOOK IS GOOD"

    When I saw that there was another Joe Ledger book I was all excited. This book has a good flow in the plot but it was a little predictable.. I'm still a loyal fan but I wanted more! I still recommend that you read/hear this book.

    "It all comes together!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Code Zero to be better than the print version?

    Of course! Joe Ledger would not be the same without Ray Porter's voice behind it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Code Zero?

    The moment I remembered most, only because I saw it coming was when Joe brought up "Violin" as being apart of something. Just the way the sentence was spreadout. I felt special, like being on the the inside of an inside joke. You know what I'm talking about.This book had so many of those moments for me. The whole series just kind of came to full circle.


    Which character – as performed by Ray Porter – was your favorite?

    Joe is my favorite. I like the "surfer" tone of Bunny too, but Joe hands down.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I would LOVE for this to be made as a film. I already have all the actor's picked out. The tag line would be: "Echo team saves the world.... again"

    "Helluva good book narrated by an excellent talent"
    Where does Code Zero rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 6


    What other book might you compare Code Zero to and why?

    Code Zero could be considered a direct sequel to Patient Zero.


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

    Ray Porter is hands down the best audiobook talent I've heard in years. He becomes the characters. He is Joe Ledger.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Jack Bauer wears Joe Ledger pajamas.


    Any additional comments?

    The Joe Ledger series is by far my favorite ongoing character. Between the incredible stories by Jonathan Maberry and the supurb narration by Ray Porter you can't get a better Audible experience.

    "Awesome!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it was fast-paced and exciting. I enjoyed the way the author tied in different dangers from past books.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Code Zero?

    The subway scene with the walkers.


    Which character – as performed by Ray Porter – was your favorite?

    Joe Ledger, of course.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "The seven plagues were only a warm-up."


    Any additional comments?

    All too often writers neglect to describe the impact of killing on the psyche. Maberry really makes you feel and understand the pain the characters go through in doing what they do.

    "Jonathan Maberry is a Master"

    My Review: I have been waiting for this book for a long time. When I saw that it was a sequel to Patient Zero, the first book in the series, I wondered how that was going to work. Was I supposed to forget all that happened in the 5 book series? All the ones that died, still alive?

    Well, the reason Jonathan Maberry is one of my favorite authors is because he is a great writer. This is both a sequel and book number 6. It takes place in the proper timeline but gives us a view into things that happened back during the events of Patient Zero and even into The Dragon Factory that, at the time, were hidden to us. This is by no means a rehash, but a masterful weaving of story and story lines. No spoilers here, so I not going to get into all the details. All the characters you love, and love to hate are here. Ray Porter once again does a great job narrating, as he always has. You have no reason not to listen to this, as a matter of fact, you OWE it to yourself. @byf2

    "I Feel Sorry for Jonathan Maberry"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Maberry went all in with this book. He pulled out all the stops and ripped the knob off the intensity meter. Character development..pacing...dialogue...everything was well done.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything.


    Which character – as performed by Ray Porter – was your favorite?

    Ledger.Ray Porter came with his A game. His performance in this book now surpasses what he did in The Power of the Dog.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. Yes. Yes. I got it at 6AM the day it came out and finished it 48 hours later. Didn't get a lot of work done, but my boss should be happy I didn't call in....I really wanted to call in.


    Any additional comments?

    I feel sorry for Jonathan Maberry, because when you write something this good, there is really no where to go but down. Sad. :)

    "Don't miss this book"

    Wow. This is not only the best book in the series but it is one of the best books I have read in a year.

    It was non stop suspense and action. I couldn't stop listening. I don't want to say more, otherwise I will spill key plot points.

    The reading by Ray Porter was amazing as always. This reading should be award winning.

    Looking forward to the next book.
