"A bite or scratch will turn the victims to one of the infected within 72 hours..."
Those words rang in Evan Berry's head. Waking to discover he'd been scratched was a death sentence. Deciding that he would not force Carl or Betty to have to put him down after he turned, Evan said farewell to his group and slipped out in the middle of the night.
Deciding that he would make one last run in the hopes that he could bring back enough supplies for his beloved Newfoundland, Chewie, Evan embarks on a quest that will show him just how fast and far society has fallen. Will he make it before he turns, or will he perish...alone?

I don't know, i haven't read the print version, but I do love the audio versions.
It would have to be when Evan was getting checked out after the roof incident and the doctor guy offered to help him get all evened/balanced.... lol!!!! i about spit my drink out when i heard that.
He puts emphasizes on the correct places. There is nobody better to read a book thank the author and TW Brown does this amazingly! he knows exactly how he pictured it in his head and when he reads it he can lead us through his vision instead of just a normal narrator that can only lead you through someone elses vision.
I had a lot of extreme reactions to this book. I laughed, almost cried, i had moments of disbelief with some of Evans choices and thought i would have chosen "better" but then again, in the specific situations i may not...
Loved it, loved it, loved it! can't wait to find out what happens next to Evan and to see what happens with his return "home"
Omg it was soooooooo good. I relistened to the first one since I've heard a few other books in between. Glad I did because I missed a lot the first time around. This one was even better. Loved it!
Love me some creepy, scarey, suspenseful, thrilling reading - when discovered I could hear some of my favorites read TO me...Audible had me!
The main character Evan, his love of his dog Chewy (sp?) , and all of his realistic flaws .
More than once I caught myself thinking, Yep, that's exactly how I would react if I were in a zombie apocalypse. I'm no superhero !
The entire focus on Evan and his love for his dog ( not that the whole book was focussed on that, but Evan was quite focussed on it )
I have heard better narrators, but TW Brown created these characters and knows their personalities inside and out. You can hear that in his narration.
I can't think of one, sorry I just wouldn't do it justice to try and name a movie .
I've always been a fan of TW Brown's zombie books/Dead series, I really enjoy the details he puts into his characters. This new dead series is a different style from the last DEAD books (with Steve Tallia etc)but so far just as enjoyable!
I listen to audio-books to escape reality, not to listen to Political Correct terms, "problematic" situations or pseudo-social-justice nonsense.
I enjoyed the first Dead: Alone audiobook, but I did not enjoy this story at all.
This is the THIRD zombie-centric book in a row that I have listened to or read that used the following formula: An "Evil white supremacist/neo-nazi group" used as the formulaic bad guys - full of sadistic tendencies, over the top torture/murder of black/ethnic people - which really does not add to the characters or move the story along in any meaningful way. Unsurprising, each one of these "stories" included an ancillary heroic black male lead who ribs and saves the main white character who these authors obviously use as avatars for their real lives/beliefs.
In this story the Ethnic gang that is fighting the evil white gang has a hispanic male who attended a convention and gave one of the famous white female characters a teddy bear and lets them pass without stealing their belongings as the normal tithe for passage. So in case you failed to realize "white people bad, ethnics good" the author beats it into your thick skull so you understand.
If you haven't read Mark Tufo's Zombie Fallout series, the story of Michael Talbot and BZ sets the standard for white/black relationships/friendships in a non-PC world.
Is there some secret mailing list for "White Guilt" promoting science fiction authors I need to know about so I can stop purchasing/listening to their propaganda masked as actual stories?
As someone who loves Newfoundland dogs and had high hopes for a promising story/series, I am not only disappointed, but mad that the same SJW virus that infected the Star Wars writing circles has now infected my Zombie universe.
I do not recommend this book or any future books by this author, TW Brown.
