Nine years ago, Jessie was in a car crash and died. After she was buried she awoke and tore through the earth to arise, reborn, as a zombie. Now she and her zombie gang, the Fly-by-Nights, roam the Indiana woods. When a mysterious illness threatens the existence of both zombies and humans, Jessie must choose between looking away or staring down the madness - and hanging on to everything she now knows as life....

    Living in Northern NJ. Addicted to that spine-tingling rush of fear.

    "The most depressing book I've read in a long time."
    What did you love best about Dust?

    No hesitation when it came to describing the gore. This is a book from a zombie's point of view after all.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Very monotone, especially in the beginning. Not sure if I just got used to it by the end or if it got better, but this bugged me less as the book went on. It's also possible that there was just more dialogue later on in the book so there was more for the narrator to work with. Still, I almost stopped listening after the first hour due to the narration alone.


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

    Loved the first 2/3 of the book. The last 1/3 started off very strong as the world opened up, but the ending was stretched way too long. After listening to hours and hours of miserable conditions that just keeps going and going, even though it was well written, it kind of ruins your day. How long can you listen to that stuff before you start wondering why you're listening to it at all? I found myself waiting for the book to end just to see how it ended.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not sure how I feel about the ending. Semi-spoiler, but it does get a little meta-physical and I do think it somewhat ruins it. I'll probably still download Frail once it is released on audiobook. I had my issues with the back 1/3 of the book, but it's still a unique take on the zombie genre and were a lot of good ideas.

    Keep in mind, I'm sure the level of depression in the book is completely intentional and is part of the point of it all.

    "Good Story with a unique approach"

    I enjoyed the unique approach to the well worn zombie genre. Really nice narration by Eva Amurri. Here character voices were consistent and on target.
