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.

I have to confess that I secretly love last person on Earth books. This book was no exception. It was told from the first person and that was one of the things that made it good. From beginning to end the book was just plain good.
Nick Podehl complimented the book better than any one else I can think of. His voice brought the book alive and you felt what the main character felt. In one place the main character was talking about the loss of his family, and I swear you could hear his voice crack and see the tears rolling. Apocalypse Z was written well and the narration made it even better.
Surprising , intense, riveting
I don't have one to compare it to.
When he finds his missing cat that he has been looking for.
Survival of the fittest
I didn't think I would like this book, but it didn't take long to get into. Thoroughly enjoyed!!
I thought the book was really good, almost in par with day by day armageddon.
Yep, Dont want to spoil the book for everyone, but there is a rather disturbing, and sad part when he goes into a house with a banging sound...
Say something about yourself!
Not as good as I hoped. I did finish to see how it ended, and I did like the main character and some of the other minor characters. The characters were developed fairly well in spite of the style of the audiobook. The "journaling" style of the book was grating after a while. It is better in written form.
I would have returned the book but I did like the character and had interest in how it turned out. I think the author should have expanded the hospital stay in more detail. Although there was a bit of creep factor there..but it was the end of the world after all. This may have enhanced the book...if it were not in the journaling style.
I bought the "whisper-sync" kindle book and audiobook, and I did like the kindle version better so you may try that if you love zombie books.
I think the book would really appeal to the reader/listener who is familiar with the story area. I looked up the places on google earth to get a feel for the some of the geography.
The audiobook was pretty good, but the style (journaling) was very distracting. The reader was very good and may have helped me like and care about the character. There were unanswered parts of the plot which may be answered in the next installment. Be aware there there is massive levels of profanity and gore as in any Z story.
I can't recommend it as a zombie novel. It's more about one person's escape and encounters than life after the world changes. I thought the character was silly and not too smart, likely unable to survive.
Discount Armageddon by Seanan McGuire
The narration was well done. I just didn't care for the book and I love zombie novels.
Yes. I love zombie stories, especially Romero style.
When they were hiding in the closet waiting for the zombies to leave.
Definitely recommended for old school fans of slow, stupid, scary, gory zombies.
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
The narrator is reads every sentence as if it is the end of the world. Please pardon the cliche and pun. The problem is that the narrator doesn't give the listener a chance to rest. Everything is "gripping" or "shocking" or "unforgettable". I know that you can blame it on the author, however, I am reading the book along with the narration via Whispersync and reading the book is much more enjoyable and makes it easy to forgive some of the author's flaws. Halfway through the book I decided to stop listening to it and just read it. The narration made it unbearable.
Mark Tufos' Till Death Do Us Part Zombie Fallout 6
Yes looks like it would
ok so this guy, the guy in this story is crazy annoying. like, sometime he's super heroic, other times he's totally fall down, curl into a ball. you can tell right off that this story is translated into english. if you can get over that its a pretty good listen. also, the main character is always crying over his cat, thorwing up out of fear, complaining about who knows what. its more annoying than anything.
