    "mix of good plot line, good character building"

    I am excited to rejoin Steve and his survivors, the geeks and their rescued girl Heather. I like the vignettes also, a good snap shot into the worse and the best of humanity.

    DEAD: Revelations: DEAD, Book 2 begins with Steve and his group leaving the security of serenity base to find they’re lost friends. While it sounds like a typical scenario, the sequence of events up to and after their leaving makes it not only plausible, but like something I would do. I really enjoy the character building T.W. Brown does here, I find myself rooting for the good guys.

    They eventually run into a predicament where Steve’s leadership skills are put to the test, not only in the future but also immediately. He allows another group of survivors join up with them even though there is a child that has been bitten. I know what you’re thinking because I was thinking the same thing, that is the first thing you DON’T do in a zombie apocalypse. But think about it, could you pick between a whole group of survivors starving or telling them they would have to finish off the child first? Steve did what I would’ve done and put it off for later, unfortunately his adopted orphan Talia was caught off guard by the infected child.

    There are many vignettes throughout, which are basically mini stories inside of the real story. It is just my opinion but these got a little disturbing, even for me. We also get to meet a band of zombie geeks, who have to leave one their one behind because of a bite, more about them in a little bit.

    The two groups meet up in the end and we are left dying to know what they will do with this new immunity information. As I listened to this I found myself really wanting the good guys to come out on top. The switching from group to group and vignettes can be a bit confusing, but a mix of good plot line, good character building, and good narration made it well worth rewinding once in a while.

    Then there is Kevin and his group of geeks. They manage to rescue a teen super star, her senator mother, and pregnant sister, only to get robbed at gun point by Shaw and his gang. The three of them escape, and rescue another girl from a sick psychopath. One of them gets bit and they put him down, but in the meantime they are waging a war against Shaw trying to re rescue the females. In the middle of all this the guy who got bit is apparently immune and returns.

    Story
    "Another fun ride!"
    What made the experience of listening to DEAD: Revelations the most enjoyable?

    I'm not sure if the narrator just grew on me or he just has grown as a narrator and that I felt it was a much more solid experience, but I really enjoyed this story as read to me by Andrew McFerrin much more than in the first book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of DEAD: Revelations?

    The vignettes were interesting - plugged into the story to make the world seem more fleshed out though in part I wish some of those had tied in to some of the people our heroes had bumped into after their demise. I really enjoy the Geek story lines. I'm not a huge fan of Heather (even though she's 16), she can be grating during the narration or of the torturing maniac, Garth or Gareth. But it's all in line with the story and following several different angles along the way. I particularly enjoy the reunion of the Geeks and Steve's story (and when he finds out a secret plot point in the book). Lee is a jerk, but there are good guys and bad guys- the same as any real situation.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll continue on with the series. All I can say is, if you weren't too sure about book 1's narration...hang in there and listen to book 2 and I think it'll help solve whatever it was about book 1 that I personally had a few narration reserves about. A fun - but TWISTED series.

    "Great continuation of the story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of DEAD: Revelations to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version, but since I love audiobooks so much, I'm going to say YES!


    What other book might you compare DEAD: Revelations to and why?

    The other books in the series, of course.


    Which character – as performed by Andrew McFerrin – was your favorite?

    Steve


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

    No laughing in this book. And no, it didn't make me cry, but there were cringe worthy moments.

    Any additional comments?

    The only thing I would tell people is its a bit hard to follow as the author jumps from one group of survivors to another. However I have seen that the author has taken his 1st 3 books and seperated the group stories into 3 separate books. So you can follow 1 group throughout an entire book. This is sooo awesome as its such a great series and hes just made it easier for the readers to follow and really care about the characters... great job great series.

    "Tight like a tiger"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dead: Revelations to be better than the print version?

    I don't get much time to read however I am able to listen to audio books at work. Considering the high quality of the audio and the smooth cadence and character voices of the narrarator, I can only imagine that it is.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead: Revelations?

    One thing about the Dead series is it's abundance of characters. With so many to follow, there were memorable moments from each group. One particular moment that made me laugh inapropiatly involved Keven underestimating the power of a bomb he built and catching his hair on fire. (Not a funny moment, but I couldn't help it)


    Which character – as performed by Andrew McFerrin – was your favorite?

    Andrew does such a great job at giving each and every character their own unique voice, which with the amount of characters in this series, is no small task. As far as liking the voices of the characters, I like the way he voices the Dr.s (Reginal, Zohn & Peter) I also like Tallia, Jaun & Shaw.


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

    Indeed. I started listening to this book during the second half of my work day. I continued to listen on my 1 hour commute home and then into the evening until I was forced to pause until the next morning.


    Any additional comments?

    While this is a series that is classified as horror and deals with the subject of zombies, it is largely about survival, human nature and how things change when it all goes down. Although this series deals with some disturbing subject matter at times, it is not vulgar or meant to tantalize. I respect that T.W. Brown did not exclude such subject matter as so many other writers in this genre have. I have no doubt that if there were a "zombie apocalypse", things would be much worse than what he has included.

    Spay, neuter, adopt, and train. Don't buy, surrender, or breed. Be a good person and carry a weapon just in case.

    Listen to the first book. Second is not as good, but close. Hero still is questioning
    why he's in charge.

    "Better than the first!"

    Although the first book in the series did not hook me right in, the second did. Gained a lot of speed and excitement. Looking forward to the third in the series!

    "Lazy, slow, somnolent"

    The story is slow both in terms of pacing and narration. There is an almost dizzying number of characters which is not good here as the narrator is unable to distinguish them in a meaningful manner as he does not possess the voices needed to portray and separate them. Hence, they tend to all sound exactly the same which makes transitions between scene and characters so important Unfortunately, there are no transitions so I find myself somewhat lost trying to figure out who is who. The narrator's laconic style detracts from the story. The first book was better. Some passion, some oomph to the read would dial this up a bit but as it is, it hits maybe 2 on the 10 graded excitement scale. Save your money!

    "Nothing special"

    I found this follow-up book on par with the first one. Nothing special.
    I liked the narration. Book seems to have equal amounts of rape/abuse and zombie action.
    I probably won't buy more books from this series.

    "Very enjoyable listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of DEAD: Revelations to be better than the print version?

    Don't know only do audible as i work :)


    What other book might you compare DEAD: Revelations to, and why?

    Hard to compare as DEAD is much darker than most Zombie books but it is as enjoyable in different ways to Zombie Fallout series


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

    Yes as with all DEAD books


    Any additional comments?

    I would like personally more high points as after all what is the point of survival if the world becomes so dark but at least there is good left in some people. Really great to follow the survival groups and in this book you get to stay with them a bit longer so can be more emotionally joined with them. There is a couple of really dark characters i would be so happy to read of their demise but as you read DEAD the author will be real and will show you the world is not fair. No-one is safe in this brilliantly written world.
