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.

Working towards retirement hopefully. I enjoy sci fi, horror, steampunk and some ya for good luck.
Not sure if I would purchase another book from the author. I did love the narrator, the character accents really made the story.
The ending was good and for me the best part. Not at all being sarcastic here the ending was right on. Listening to a zombie apocalypse based in Spain was interesting, most are based in the U.S. The udder despair of the humans and total power of the zombies, awesome. The main character after months and months remained pretty damn stupid.
Never listened to Nick Podehl before, enjoyed his voice and the story telling. Actually his performance kept me listening.
I got tired of the author needing to describe every human corpse in detail. I get it the world was crap. Things were bad and the main character was having a bad time.
Having read/listened to many zombie/apocalypse stories this is good enjoyable zombie fun, with some good twists in the story and narrated well.
love the history plus real world outlook. Manel has grasped humanitys largest fear of losing our control and humanity. a modern classic.........can not wait for the next installment.
Interesting, thought provoking, gruesome
Yes, I looked forward to listening to it
Really enjoyed listening to this
I really enjoyed this book, it's a winner for sure. There are 2 more books in the series, and I hope they come out in English.
A good zombiebook and it feels refresehing that the story is taking place i Spain, europe in contrast to all the american zombiebooks.
Nick Podehl is a great narrator and always delivers and helps the listener in to the different scenes
Good buy, will go on the next book in the series
The story didn't seem to become interesting until over half way through. I felt like many of the situations were cliche of these types of books. Nothing out of the ordinary or original.
I think I liked the author's choice of pet the least: a cat. Who can relate to that? And who cares about a cat in the apocalypse? Dogs are at least loyal and can help you, but cats are totally useless. The author lost me at the beginning with this.
It has been a classic, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.
Young, inexperienced, whiney
No. There are already much better novels out there about this subject that are far more interesting and original.
Couldn't wait to finish this book so I could move on to the next.
The way the author engrosses you in the life of the character. The writing style makes it feel like you are right there with him.
It is a lot like Walking Dead in the fact that it is a character driven story set during a zombie Apocalypse. Unlike Walking Dead this book is about one main character and his personal story.
When the main character finds out about the zombies and gets the courage to try and go out for the first time.
It made me really feel for the world the story was set it in and how bad things could get it such a short period of time.
Great Zombie book a must for any zombie fan. I cannot wait until the second book is translated into English this year.
I would not read a book from either the writer or reader of this book. Maybe Mr. Loureiro is better in spanish but the translation is simple and uses the same english phrases throughout the book. The reading by Nick Podehl is not good, and often painful although he isn't given much to work with. Try another zombie book.
I enjoyed both. I started with the kindle version and finished with the audiobook version. Both were excellent. The narration added a different dimension to the experience making the character more 'real'.
I loved the fact that the lead character wasn't a survivalist, just a man with common sense.
He sounds like the All-American boy next door. Very easy to listen to with enough distinction in his voice to easily separate the characters.
Yes! I did it in two, actually. Read half on the kindle, finished up on Audible.
So . . . .part 2? Where are you????
