Winter is coming... As survivors around the world struggle to get their feet under them in a world overrun by the walking dead, a new problem rears its head. As unstoppable as any horde of zombies, the seasons march on, heedless of the fragility of the human race. The first winter is approaching. Up in the mountains of northeastern Oregon, Steve's band settles in but discover something so horrible that it may destroy them before the weather has a chance. Kevin faces ghosts from his past while struggling to maintain unity among his people. In other parts of this dead world, a team of scientists struggle to devise a cure... A new pharaoh rises in Egypt... Chad learns he will do anything to keep his daughter safe... Juan struggles with the demons of his past that tell him he is unfit to lead... or love... A military unit tries to restore order at any cost...

    Any additional comments?

    There's a line in the book at the very beginning made by Steve that made me laugh out loud at the way the narrator - Andrew McFerrin- delivered it. It was done exactly how I'd expect the line to be delivered and it helped bring me back into Brown's world easily. It was "God knows, the bones wouldn't come out of the trench on their own.... *God, please. Don't let them come out of the trench by themselves."
    You'll know when you hear it.
    I've said it in a previous opinion of the book series, but if you've made it this far, you know that you'll enjoy the ride.
    I will say that there do seem to be a lot of characters in the books that start kind of feeling like they have a lot of the same character traits of other major players- but I'm ok with heroism in books. And, not every character that I want to see lives, does- so there's a good balance of new people to deaths of characters who have been around a while, and most die in a tragic way, that's gutsy for a writer to do - considering fans have come this far.
    The book takes place at the very beginning of Winter - and then during some big snow storms that have taken place. In most cases, there won't be SO much action taking place because all of the people would want to hunker down and avoid the weather, so I can at least say that the book does a good job of at least showing some of the horrible bickering that would go on if you were locked in one place with a group of people, but luckily does NOT go overboard with completely inane conversations that would happen to people for real. (The girls never get THAT over the top girly in annoyance).
    The heroes have proven themselves and most often than not always put themselves first in harms way. While that could seem to have some drawbacks, I don't think it completely does. While I do wonder when Steve and Kevin might actually fall into sheer unconsciousness for days, I would believe that the type of character that we see- this hero type, would rise among the people who don't know what to do, or how to do things to stay alive. So, I'm fine with all that.
    I did find the Vignettes a little more distracting this time, since there's now a group in Egypt , a military area, and a tourist attraction, and island - and while these snippets felt more interesting in the last book, since I've seen those characters (some) before- it felt a little more jarring this time, in that- a scene with Steve or Kevin might end on a cliffhanger and I wanted to know more- and had to wait. BUT - it's good to see the rounded sphere of the world going on around the main characters to date (even though in print I *might* have skipped some of the PoV's because I was too anxious for the main stories).
    Overall, this installment to the series is a great addition and I enjoyed listening to it again. I look forward to the next book, one of which I didn't catch up on this first time it was in print.

    You know if you're a fan of the series and the characters by this point. I can't tell you more than what you know from the past books- but this one definitely didn't let me down.

    Enjoy!

    "You should be ashamed of yourself Mr. TW Brown!"
    What would have made DEAD: Winter better?

    If the Author had been concerned about his novel rather than cashing his checks. If there was a plot. If there had been some character development. If there had been some interesting scenarios the character had encountered. If the new characters introduced had any ability to make you care or be interested in them.


    What was most disappointing about TW Brown’s story?

    Basically this book is completely empty of substance, half hearted, and lazy. It's 11.5 hours of words strung together with out anything being said.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Andrew McFerrin?

    Mr. McFerrin is fine, maybe he could read a turd of a story like this one faster to help end the listener's suffering sooner.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Well, I'm only 10 hours into the book so far, so there is hope that the zombies will overtake all of the current survivors thereby extinguishing the human race and this book series with it.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought of this series as a good B- series of zombies novels, (until this one). Sometimes even rising to a solid A. But Wow! I will certainly be asking for my credit back.

    "Brilliant Book Right Up with Zombie Fallout Series"
    Where does DEAD: Winter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In top 5 easily


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like that this writer gets deeper and bit darker into humans as civilisation collapses along with those whom are better than they were.


    What does Andrew McFerrin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    His narration is very good and keeps you encompassed to a well written, sad and happy story.


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

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    At the end of the world there just seems to be one crisis after another with little moments of happiness. Keeps you rooting for main characters and sickened by the darker ones but balanced so well it keeps you in right to the end.
