"Please tell me you are working on the next one!"
"It's nice to find a new idea on how people came to be zombies."
Civilization shuts down as the world's population fills the streets in a deadly orgy. They feel only pleasure and never pain, even as they are injured, maimed, and mutilated. The few who remain unaffected struggle to survive, unaware that things are about to get unbelievably worse.
Cooper is among the few survivors of an apocalypse that is a result of a conspiracy to depopulate the world. One week ago, college was his biggest concern. Now he is on a perilous journey to find his sister. But zombie attacks aren't the only threat he faces. In this nightmarish reality, the living can be far more dangerous in this new dystopia.

A new twist on the old zombie theme. Loved the way all the stories merged together towards the end in a believable, sensible ending.
Interesting read and plenty of action.
Good characters and story flow
a good read or listen
worth the credits
Love listening to audio books.
This is a genre I enjoy reading/listening. Euphoria Z wasn't your typical cookie cutter zombie apocalypse story. It had enough unique elements to make it fresh - not cliche. I like that it wasn't all just action - boom, boom, boom - but a satisfying amount of character development before the thrills.
This is the first book by Roberto Scarlato I've heard. I have to admit, at first I wasn't sure if I was going to like his style of narrating - my first reaction was that it was somewhat stiff - but as the story developed I wasn't distracted at all - but immersed. And isn't that what the narrator is supposed to do? His voicings of the different characters were strong and distinct.
An enjoyable listen.
I'm absolutely speechless with this book, to be honest. I struggled BIG time to finish it because there was very little I liked about this, but finish it I did. Now I've read a lot of post apocalyptic fiction but none has come close to this in relation to the overall feeling of it. I'll start off by saying that how the Zombies started was unique, I mean the fact that they start off by being extremely happy and over affectionate was unique and I liked a whole 2 characters, Cooper and Sal but other than that, this book was, what felt like for me anyway, one long rant, debasing and derogatory story about fat people, gays, women, blacks and anything else they could find.
I know most post apocalyptic books have bad people doing even worse things and that doesn't bother me, but, this book was nothing but bad people doing disgusting things and the hateful and horrible stuff that was said was worse than the deeds. Example, and this is just the tip of the ice berg, laughing at a fat woman because she couldn't get up, calling women everything from bitches to whores, having them naked and locked in a cage, and as for the racial slurs!! It was just down right disgusting.
In all, this is a book I can't recommend, personally, but that's not to say that you won't enjoy it. I have book 2 for review but I'm not sure if I'll continue on. Maybe I'll listen to it for a while to see if the bad things above have become any better, but I'll have to see. My heart can't take any more hatred at the moment.
Roberto Scarlato did a good job. I had no problem at all with his narration, the book yes, but not him.
*I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affected my thoughts.*
This is a good story. It's one of the rare stories I enjoyed listening to more than reading. Looking forward to next.
Why all of the orgy?
Narrator was fine.
Too much orgy.
Silly, immature content - and I LOVE zombie stories!
