Whispering Pines is a classic, quiet, private American subdivision on the edge of Asheville, NC, set in the pristine Blue Ridge Mountains. Which is good since the zombie apocalypse has come to Western North Carolina and really put suburban living to the test! Surrounded by a sea of the undead, the residents of Whispering Pines have adapted their bucolic life of block parties to scavenging parties, common area groundskeeping to immediate area warfare, neighborhood beautification to neighborhood fortification. But, even in the best of times, suburban living has its ups and downs what with nosy neighbors, a strict Home Owners' Association, and a property management company that believes the words "strict interpretation" are holy words when applied to the HOA covenants. Now with the zombie apocalypse upon them even those innocuous, daily irritations quickly become dramatic struggles for personal identity, family security, and straight up survival. Welcome to normal life in Z-Burbia!

I am one to weigh heavily on reviews before I use a precious credit to purchase an audio book. I sometimes spend days frantically looking for the next book to listen to, while still listening, and getting close to finishing, a book in my library. I took a chance with Z Burbia, since there was only 4 reviews. The chance paid off. The story was great right from the start, and the narrator had the voice to portray the sarcasm to go right along with it. If you are a fan of Mark Tufo, you will love Jake bible. Give it a chance, like me, you will be pleasantly surprised. Now off to purchase the 2nd Zburbia,
I love Sci Fi , Fantasy, Horror especially Zombies and Vampires. History, Fiction and Non Fiction. I enjoy both printed and audio books. :)
The humor and sarcasm were a bit like Mark Tufo but original in its self :)
The fact that the residents of whispering grove voted the fat women back into office in their community. Totally unbelievable, the writter should have taken a more believable path with her.
Very good and loved listening to him tell the story. Well done :)
The canny girl was one of the most likable chacter.
A good fun read :)
Andrew B. Wehrlen is the perfect narrator for Jase's no-holds-bared communication style and humor. It reminds me of Sean Runnette playing Mike Talbot in the Zombie Fallout series. Absolutely perfect! And like Talbot, Jase has a really awesome way of looking at things.
Jase of course. This guy is a man's man. He doesn't hold back and says things in a way I wish I could all the time. He probably say the F-Word about 500 times in the book, but it doesn't seem vulgar to me, just calls it like it is. And Jase is a F'ing funny mother F'er and an F'ing good father and husband.
Again, Andrew B. Wehrlen was the perfect choice to bring Bible's Z-Burbia to world life, and the perfect voice for Jase's character.
I've never laughed so much during while listening to an audio book, It was all great.
Z-Burbia 2 is just as good.
The writer's perfect balance of humor, fear, and action.
The tension of the initial long pork scene.
Decent, his narration was indecisive at times, which was a little distracting to listen to.
Jake always weaves a good yarn and has a knack for developing the most interesting and quarky characters. This is a must listen.
