The dead rise…
A mysterious incident in Russia, a blip buried in the news - it’s the only warning humanity receives that civilization will soon be destroyed by a single, voracious virus that creates monsters of men.
A lawyer, still grieving over the death of his young wife, begins to write as a form of therapy. But he never expected that his anonymous blog and journal would ultimately record humanity’s last days.
The end of the world has begun…
Governments scramble to stop the zombie virus, people panic, so-called Safe Havens are established, the world erupts into chaos; soon it’s every man, woman, and child for themselves. Armed only with makeshift weapons and the will to live, this survivor will give mankind one last chance against…Apocalypse Z.

I'm an AVID listener to this genre. Great narration and overall great experience. .
Overall this kept me glued.
But there were many times I shouted aloud in frustration…why? It seemed that every time they got in a vehicle it shot off at great speed, and guess what happened every time…they crashed/ran into or nearly ran into something/someone. They left doors open, they didn't look behind them, they just didn't seem to learn from one minute to the next.
ok so this guy, the guy in this story is crazy annoying. like, sometime he's super heroic, other times he's totally fall down, curl into a ball. you can tell right off that this story is translated into english. if you can get over that its a pretty good listen. also, the main character is always crying over his cat, thorwing up out of fear, complaining about who knows what. its more annoying than anything.
This is my 13th zombie book and It was definitely a tier 3 book. Don't get me wrong, there were some very good parts but there was a lot of boring stuff too. The beginning was too long for what it brought to the table. It was good enough if its one of your last options.
Great Book Love the voice of the narrator he kept the book exciting voice was easy to listen too also...Good action along with gore and suspense. Wanting more could not put it down. I only listen to audible books in my car but found myself holding my Iphone and listening to the book. Looking forward to the next book. HURRY PLEASE.....
First time listening to him
Oh holy Hera. Where to begin? The plot early puts too much of the fear of Ebola and Islamophobia. The plot hops continents, the CDC is in Atlanta; but in the United States. International readers or those not familiar to the zombie genre might not know where the CDC might be. Just a note. I got 10 mins into the audio book. I'm happy I didn't pay for this one, put pissed I wasted data on it. Not my cup of tea.
I'm a fan of this genre, but this was a hard story to listen through.
The narrator is a highly skilled voice actor, which is partly why this was a hard listen. He captured the essence of the main character perfectly.
almost too perfectly.
The "hero" of this story is a whimpering heap of terrified jelly.
He spews vomit, and leaks tears throughout the whole tale.
His idiotic decision making, and staggering naiveté, deserves a swift and violent death. Unfortunately, because he is the lead character, we are forced to experience this horrifying apocalypse through the eyes of the most wussified man imaginable.
If you enjoy end of days, undead, survival types of things this is most definitely a good read or listen.
The main reason that I enjoyed this book so much is that the main character is just a regular guy.
During the first part of the book, you discover little by little through the eyes of the main character how this apocalyptic event evolves to the point where the entire world is affected.
He is not a super soldier like many of the main characters in most Zombie books. I grow tired of the super soldier fighting the zombie hoards in book after book.
I have read all three books several times and enjoy them just as much as the first time.
I would like it if more authors would use this style of story telling.
The book just clicked for me I highly recommend it.
