Ex-Heroes | [Peter Clines]

Ex-Heroes

Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

Publisher's Summary

Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

Now, a year later, the Mighty Dragon and his companions must overcome their differences and recover from their own scars to protect the thousands of survivors sheltered in their film studio-turned-fortress, the Mount. The heroes lead teams out to scavenge supplies, keep the peace within the walls of their home, and try to be the symbols the survivors so desperately need. For while the ex-humans walk the streets night and day, they are not the only threat left in the world, and the people of the Mount are not the only survivors left in Los Angeles. Across the city, another group has grown and gained power. And they are not heroes.

    "Just fun"

    Zombies, super heroes, zombie super heroes. What's not to like? This book won't change your life or the way you look at the world, but it's a fun listen for someone who enjoys the genre.

    "Love it!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was my 2nd book by Peter Cline (1st was 14) and I loved the way this story is done, lots of different stories within main book but all entwined lovely.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Stealth was my favorite character because she mantains her persona without slacking.


    What about Jay Snyder and Khristine Hvam ’s performance did you like?

    I loved Jay Snyder and would love to listen to anything else but I'm sorry to say Kristine's voice was not very easily to hear.

    "Fun Listen"
    Where does Ex-Heroes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Ex-Heroes is in the top 15% of the audiobooks I have listened to.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    St George emulates the save the world superhero persona very well. It's fun to listen to him play against the "this is the real world" characters as a moral icon.


    What does Jay Snyder and Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    When I first began listening to this I was concerned having two narrators would be confusing, but the voices brought the characters out more vividly.


    Any additional comments?

    Great introduction to a possible series.

    "One of my new favorites"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I found this writer after stumbling across 14 after running out of Stepen King novels........this story is great.......the characters have depth and are fun.....I also enjoyed the reading team of Jay Snyder and Khristine Hvam......kept my attention and I have listened to both books of this series several times.....even hoping that there might be a third or fourth or fifth book.....


    What other book might you compare Ex-Heroes to and why?

    n/a


    Have you listened to any of Jay Snyder and Khristine Hvam ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no....but I very much enjoyed their performances


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    that is a good question.....Can't think of one....

    Story
    "Detail really gives you a visual"
    Would you listen to Ex-Heroes again? Why?

    Not really. It covered everything I needed to hear. No need to revisit.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting had to have been each individual character. How Peter Clines took each character and flashed back to before the outbreak and understand their powers, their feelings and thoughts on what was happening to them.

    The least interesting was....well really nothing.


    Have you listened to any of Jay Snyder and Khristine Hvam ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first with these two narrators. I enjoyed them both. Good range of emotions and between the characters they played.


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

    Yes and no. This is not a book to be listened to every once in a while. Too many details that you might forget in between reads.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall I liked it. I like zombies and who doesn't like superheros. I liked how Peter Clines incorporated both and the story they came up with. Great attention to detail that you can see right in front of you Cerberus crushing a skull and the greyish ooze spilling out. So far I've enjoyed Peter Clines.

    Story
    "Extremely Dissapointing!"

    After reading "14" I could not wait to get my hands on another book by Peter Clines. Ex-Heroes was not what I was expecting. The book was very boring. In fact I could not get past the first two hours. It does not have the same mystery and intrigue as "14". I will not finish it.

    Story
    "Everything I hoped for but didn't expect"

    I purchased this based on other readers' reviews. At first glance, the concept seemed just bit off the rails for me. Zombies and Superheroes occupying the same pages? How could that possibly work?

    Well, not only does it work, it works beautifully. The characters are well-drawn and believable, and both the heroes and zombies are treated "realistically" (if I can use that word to describe fictional constructs). The story is tight, with appropriate tension and tragedy.

    Overall I was very impressed.

    The only possible quibble I could come up with is, it was over too soon. I was really getting to like these people, and there were a lot of personal subplots that didn't get fully resolved, which you would expect in "real life".

    A very satisfying book, and I would definitely recommend to Sci-Fi, superhero, or Zombie/Horror fans.

    Story
    "Nice take on super heroes in a zombie world"
    What made the experience of listening to Ex-Heroes the most enjoyable?

    The action and comic book feel of the story was great. Total fantasy but had a nice amount of grounding in a bit of everyday. But definitely a super hero story.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    A little more character development, maybe a little bit more development of the sub stories.


    What does Jay Snyder and Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It was great to have both a female and male narrator to read the characters it added to the quality of the audiobook.


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

    I was engaged with the story. A real action story.
