    "Looks like a great series to follow"

    I can't explain why each book is so short, it made me avoid this series until now. I guess the upfront cost is cheap to get people started, as the stories get longer and more worth a credit later on.

    Early on we find out that the infection is intentional, as people received "pricks" in subways. A few days after, today, people just change to zombies and start eating the normals. David needs to get away from down town to his wife and kids, which he actually does as that's just half way through the story. I liked this because I got to see him and his family interact and be part of the story, it wasn't just the end of the story. David is pretty smart, so is his wife and kid in fact, but they aren't brutal, which is a problem not only in this book, but the next as I'm currently reading book 2 now. Threats to your life and family need to be eliminated, zombie or human!

    I wasn't very impressed by the narrator, kinda monotone, non flowing kind of reading. Didn't sound like a pro. But each book has new narrators, an excellent idea I think, I prefer the narrator in book 2. So yeah, I'm following this series, and I think you should too!

    Story
    "Good story ruined by cuss and f words"
    Would you try another book from A.R. Wise and/or Brian Sutherland?

    No, I won't. Why sprinkle a good story with curse words when the story itself can stand alone without it?


    What other book might you compare Deadlocked 1 to and why?

    I didn't finish the book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Every part that I listened to was well written and narrarated.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Deadlocked 1?

    None.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't lower your ability to tell a good story by fitting in curse words and the f word every chance you get. Mr. Wise, I would love to listen to your work but you ruined it with the language you chose to use needlessly.
