Unique Zombie Adventure
Yes! It's interesting and different than anything I've read this year no vampires no magic just science fiction love it!
The character's personalities are enhanced and better portrayed with her narration than if I'd read it myself
Very shocked at how they just killed her like she was nothing it was kind of personally upsetting to me bc she seemed like a very good person
Say something about yourself!

First Thought when Finished: Wicked, Dark, and just a bit funny! I really enjoyed Working Stiff!
Story Thoughts: I am a fan of zombies in all shapes and forms: Scary, Mindless, Thinking, Snarky, Scary, and Functioning. If the story frames the "zombie" lore well, I can totally buy it. Working Stiff manages to make me believe that we can revive the dead and they can survive on something other brains. The strongest part of this story though was the mystery. I was really caught up in the tracking, planning, and taking down of the baddie.
Character Thoughts: I LOVED Bryn! She was a great combo of snark, realism, and flippant enough to roll with the punches. The fact that she had an armed forces background helped sell the other parts of her character that made her kick-ass. The boys were great too! While I not quite on board with the romance (which to me was very secondary in Working Stiff-as it should have been), I see myself jumping on that train in book 2! All around great character development and introductions.
Narrated By Julia Whelan / Length: 12 hrs and 7 mins
Overall I think Julia did a wonderful job with the narration. It took about 3 hours for me to really click the characters with her "sound" but after that it was totally enjoyable. I expect that my audio rating will be higher for book 2.
Final Thoughts: I found a new to me series that I will totally enjoy, I think!
