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.

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
Storytelling was weak and a lesson in why storytellers should show instead of tell. Too much "I was shocked" and other redundant and obvious phrases. Sounded like a journal I would have written if the younger me experienced a zombie apocalypse, and I know that would've been unfit for publication.
I'm an engineer that took all my electives in English and Art! Fantasy novels with moral depth and colorful worlds fill my library.
This has no appeal because as the apocalypse comes, I won't be worried over a cat or a relationship. There are no guns (well not really,) no well written fight scenes, and a long whimpering slide down hoping for the government to save him. Not sure how I listened as long as I did! I hated it. I hope someone out there can stand that Whiney sounding lead character...
I like a good zombie story as much as the next person, but with the sheer number of books in the genre these days, the bar is set pretty high.
-I liked the fact that it took place in Spain, I found that to be a refreshing change of pace.
-The narration was pretty good overall, although a few times I think he kind of over-acted it.
-The ending leaves you somewhat with a sense of hope, purpose, and sets the stage for the next book.
-The dialogue I felt was very repetitive, at times almost to the point of being annoying. Example...the phrase "I shuddered at the thought" or some variant involving the word "shuddered" came up time after time.
-The writing style (that of journal entries), while different, I think hinders some of the story. For example, it would have been interesting to see how the boat captain's reaction to getting the wrong briefcase would have played out, but because there are only journal entries the reader never gets this satisfaction.
Overall I thought the book to be middle-of-the-road average and I'm just not interested enough in the characters to continue the series.
the plot is excellent and with very good flow and it's not about some superman or guy with super powers just a normal man with brains defeating the dead!!!
Lots of action and a really well written story in the walking dead (zombie) genre. I really enjoyed this first entry of the series and can't wait to read the next entry.
Nothing new here really. You know what to expect going in and the story delivers. Characters were OK and the narrator does a fine job. Story wise, we've heard it all before but I still enjoyed.
