    "Please never let me hear this Narrator again!"
    What would have made The Living Dead Boy and the Zombie Hunters better?

    A different Narrator. The inflections on this guys voice is horrible. I don't know if a sample is offered, but before you purchase, get a sample listen.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Erik Sandvold?

    Cassandra Campbell did the "As the World Dies" Trilogy and she did an acceptable job.


    Any additional comments?

    I really think I could have enjoyed this book more but was too distracted by the Narrator. I found myself mimicking what he was saying back to him while driving alone in my car, I was that annoyed.

    "I absolutely couldn't take it any more."
    What did you like best about The Living Dead Boy and the Zombie Hunters? What did you like least?

    What did I like best? Not much. What did I like least? There are so many children in this book crying out for their parents. And when you listen to "Mama!" and "I want my dad!" over and over and over and over and OVER again it just made me cringe until I shut the book off half way. I don't know how the book ends but I hope the damn kids got eaten.


    If you’ve listened to books by Rhiannon Frater before, how does this one compare?

    I haven't.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His children's voice crying out for their parents. Over and over and over again. I just couldn't take it any more.


    Did The Living Dead Boy and the Zombie Hunters inspire you to do anything?

    Not listen to anymore young adult zombie novels ever again. They're like regular zombie novels only more annoying.


    Any additional comments?

    If you hate the obnoxious children the next table over in the restaurant then SKIP this book.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Any additional comments?

    I need to preface this review with the following statement, I read A LOT of zombie fiction. That being said it is safe for you to assume that I love zombie fiction and am willing to forgive a lot of over used tropes and boring subplots for the sake of a decent zombie yarn.

    This book needs no forgiveness.

    The Living Dead Boy and the Zombie Hunters is the BEST Young Adult (YA) horror novel I have ever read. Never once in this book did I feel like the story was writing down to the reader. The story is a comprehensive and extremely well paced narrative that provides equal numbers of scares, laughs, and tears. The characters are well constructed and you care about what happens to them. I enjoyed every second and finished it in a single reading. My only complaint is that I want a second book …
