    I don't have a bunker and I would starve in 2 1/2 days, but I like to listen to people who do and wouldn't.

    "OUTSTANDING, perfectly OUTSTANDING!"
    Would you listen to Omega Days again? Why?

    Yes, this is what a zombie story is all about. Fast paced, perfect character development, several story lines; each as good as the last and next and each a stand alone story.


    What other book might you compare Omega Days to and why?

    Day by Day Series.


    What does Richard Ferrone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Outstanding all the way around.

    "jumble of short stories"

    Rather common in the zombie genre are stories of disparate groups of survivors trying to make it out alive. This book is a lot of that, unfortunately its nothing but that. If you are not paying attention, you lose track of which group you are listening to.

    Because there were so many groups, so many characters and quick switching between them, I didn't have time to connect with any of them, and anyone could just die at any time anyways. There wasn't any major story plot to follow.

    I like it when these groups meet or unknowingly interact, but in this book, it wasn't until the very end that these groups met and merged which made me buy book 2 in the series, because I thought, finally, we get a main story. I already read the second book, so I can say, its better, but the author again separated the now big group into small groups, so same style yet again!

    Nonetheless, the writing skill is very high, and so is the narration which must have been challenging because of the many female voices.

    "Another very good zombie story"

    This is the first John L Campbell story I have heard and I was pleasantly surprised. It really is yet another very good title to add to the zombie genre.

    The narration was pretty good, not RC Bray quality but still very good. The narration was slower than I liked and was easily sped up to 1.5x speed without any problems at all. This does shorten the length of the story somewhat but it is still excellent value per hour, if that makes a difference (I know it does for me on a limited budget)

    The story starts off with a lot of separate accounts of survivors but towards the very end, it speeds up as the separate subplots and groups come together. I get the sense this is going to be a long series because this first book has only very briefly tackled the idea of 'why the end started'. I am going to purchase the next in the series and can only hope it is just as good as this one!

    If you are interested in this type of title may I also suggest the following:
    Adrians Undead Diary (series)
    Z-Burbia (series) has a lot more violence and naughty language
    Mountain Man (series)

    "Disappointed"

    I purchased this book because there were some great reviews, but I don't understand why there were great reviews. I've listened to A LOT of zombie stories and this was even worse than Tofu's long-series to nowhere. The author is clearly setting this up to be a larger story about God, which the title gives away. The religious set-up is very obvious, and sadly looks to be heading in the good christian that seems bad vs bad christian that seems good. I bet book two will look a lot like the two eternal good v. evil brothers in Lost. I won't be reading book two to find out. The story is fast paced, which is good. The characters aren't around long enough to connect with, and then the book ends where a chapter should end, not a story. This guy is clearly looking to cash in on the zombie series interest.

    Story
    "Wow!"
    If you could sum up Omega Days in three words, what would they be?

    Original, engrossing, and a deep gulp of dark beer in zombie fiction, an area of writing that's often flowing over with over-sweetened Kool aid.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Father Xavier


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Can't say without spoilers!


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

    Father Xavier and Alden


    Any additional comments?

    I hope that this authors writes more Zombie fiction and fast, and I hope that he starts a revolution of originality and depth within this genre!

    "Decent"

    The characters are diverse and there are exciting parts, but author failed to provide enough depth or connection with this listener to make me excited to finish the series. Richard Ferrone is terrific with the narration and it was his work on Sanford's 'Prey' series that led me to give this book a listen.

    "Good story. Jumped around a bit too much."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Maybe. It's a decent book, but nothing over-the-top that makes me go "Oh, you HAVE to read this."


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Omega Days?

    When Skye saw her mother in the crowd of zombies.
