    Story
    "Heart-pounding, Pulse-rising, zombie action!"

    Ever wonder what would happen if Baltimore was overrun by a zombie horde? K. Michael Gibson's version is intense and captivating. His characters are relatable with just the right touch of sarcasm to keep you wanting more. I plan to add the written version to my library since I found the reader's voice a little bit nasally to for my taste and I would prefer to completely immerse myself into such an entertaining story. The voice wasn't so awful that I couldn't enjoy the story, I just think I prefer reading to listening.

    "Gripping"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dead Pulse Rising to be better than the print version?

    I would not. Not because I didn't think this particular one was bad, but because I am more of a reader than a listener. However, if one preferred listening, rather than reading, I think this is a good choice! ;)


    What other book might you compare Dead Pulse Rising to and why?

    I have no other comparison. It's the first "zombie" book I've ever read/heard. LOVED every word!


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

    No, I have not.


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

    Once the story took off, yes. It's hard to stop listening!


    Any additional comments?

    The overall story was awesome! For a first "zombie" read, I am hooked!

    Story
    "Please get a new narrator."
    Would you try another book from K. Michael Gibson and/or Bob Dunsworth?

    The story itself was actually pretty good, it had comedy, action, and a little drama but this narrator completely ruined it for me. He would constantly pronounce words wrong and at first, it wasn't so bad but after a few hours into it; I just couldn't stand it anymore. They weren't even complex words either like Daemonolatreia or anything. It would be words such as wafted (he says waf-ted, not wahf-ted.) Also every time the characters think in their head the narrator would like cup his hands around his mouth to try and give it an echo effect which just made it annoying since he does it every 15 minutes or so. If you have the patients of a Saint, then go for it. This is actually a pretty good story but the narrator was just annoying.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Get a new narrator.
