Ex-Communication | [Peter Clines]

Ex-Communication

In the years since the wave of living death swept the globe, St George and his fellow heroes haven't just kept Los Angeles' last humans alive - they’ve created a real community, a bustling town that's spreading beyond its original walls and swelling with new refugees. But now one of the heroes, perhaps the most powerful among them, seems to be losing his mind. The implacable enemy known as Legion has found terrifying new ways of using zombies as pawns in his attacks.

Publisher's Summary

"All of us try to cheat death. I was just better prepared to do it than most folks."In the years since the wave of living death swept the globe, St George and his fellow heroes haven't just kept Los Angeles' last humans alive - they've created a real community, a bustling town that's spreading beyond its original walls and swelling with new refugees. But now one of the heroes, perhaps the most powerful among them, seems to be losing his mind. The implacable enemy known as Legion has found terrifying new ways of using zombies as pawns in his attacks. And outside the Mount, something ancient and monstrous is hell-bent on revenge.As Peter Clines weaves these elements together in yet another masterful, shocking climax, St. George, Stealth, Captain Freedom, and the rest of the heroes find that even in a city overrun by millions of ex-humans... there's more than one way to come back from the dead.

    "Much better than the first!"

    Much better than the first Ex-Heroes book - this one expanded on what was missing in the first: in-depth characterization, with less descriptive action scenes. Lots of fun!

    "Enjoyable series and Enjoyable auditor"

    I truly enjoy both the writing of Peter Clines and the reading of Jay Snyder and Khristine Hvam and Mark Boyette. I hope this series continues. I appreciate the character development and I love the concept of superheroes!!!!!

    "Best of the series, bad editing was distracting"

    I really like the Ex's series for pure thoughtless entertainment value -- superheroes AND zombies, it's a geek dream! -- and the third book proved to be my favorite so far.

    However, the audiobook was obviously a rush job as the editing was no where near as good as the previous two. Numorous time during the listen, the wrong character would speak, and at least twice lines were duplicated. The flaws distracted from a cool story enough to be a little irritating.

    "George Romero meets Ridley Scott"

    This would have been a great one and a half movie with CGI. As a book however it is rated "P" for "P"ass. Ghosts and goblins. "14" IMHO is a better effort from Mr. Clines.

    "Narration has some glitches"

    First off, I love the "Ex-" books. I love the idea of reluctant, flawed humans who became "heroes." How this happened still hasn't been explained, but, really, who cares? This is up to Clines previous standards, a twist you may not see coming, new characters who are as intriguing as the regulars. I found myself sitting in the car not wanting to get out until a chapter end. Good stuff.
    The only criticism I have of this recording is there are some clear re-dubbings where the characters' voices are suddenly different. It's a little jarring since the narrators have given each character very specific vocal pitches and speech patterns, It can be confusing in scenes with several characters - trying to figure out which character is speaking.
    I wouldn't let it stop me from recommending this book, but listeners should be aware of this slight flaw.

    "Fun story"

    This is the 3rd installment of Peter Clines' zombie/hero books, and I believe it is the best one so far. The story and plot are well thought out, and the character development in this novel is much better than in the previous two books. The primary antagonist in this story is a powerful demon by the name of Cairax Murrain, who seeks to extract revenge on the Heroes because of his previous enslavement by the former hero Max Haile. The ensuing battle that results is both captivating and entertaining. If you liked Ex-Heroes and Ex-Patriots, you definitely enjoy this worth follow up.

    One puzzling point in this story is that one of the main protagonists, a hero by the name of Stealth who is a professed atheist, is very critical of, and antagonistic towards, the "believers" in the story, This is despite the fact that she actually faces and fights against a demon from hell that is described as the brother of Satan. It appears that Stealth has no problem accepting the reality of demons and hell, but refuses to acknowledge the existence of any sort of God or opposing good to the evil that exists in her world. Perhaps this will be explained in upcoming installments.

    As far as the narration of the story goes, I was less than impressed. Several male and female narrators were used in the presentation of the story, but there was no chemistry between them and the narration to me was very disjointed. I think I would have preferred a single narration performance in this case.

    "Very good book but character mistakes"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I thought it was a great story line that took many new twist. The story lines were very interesting.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like corpse girl, not sure why. I typically don't like "kid" characters, but she added to the group in some way. The character blended very well with the other characters.

    Cpt. Freedom is a fun character too.

    Zap is still pretty funny.


    What three words best describe the narrators’s voice?

    The voices fit.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I very much enjoyed to trying to figure out what was happening to Maddie. I kind of did figure it out quite early, but not the twist.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep it up. I really like these story lines. They aren't getting stale. They've become some of my favorite series and encouraged me to read Peter's other books.

    Although, now I'm out of Peter Cline books.

    Story
    "Amazing Story but a Couple Oddities in Narration"
    Would you listen to Ex-Communication again? Why?

    I would listen to the story again because I loved the storyline, the characters and the narration(mostly)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It's a toss up between Maxwell Hale and Zzap. Maxwell just had the most interesting character with his magic and his struggles about Cyrax. Zzap was simply a humorous side attraction(in addition to being very powerful)


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

    The narration was very good when it was working correctly. For example, there was a scene with Stealth talking and one sentence she was clearly being voiced by Khristine Hvam but the next sentence it switched over to a male baratone then back to her. It was quite confusing.


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

    The book made me smirk for about five minutes and smile in other random parts but it was more pf an interesting story than anything invoking an emotional reaction


    Any additional comments?

    While the narration was confusing at some parts, it in no way detracted from the story. Highly recommend this book and the series.
