I don't know how this happen, but I LOVE Zombie/End of the World as We Know it/Gross Me Out/ Gag Me with a Spoon Books.

This was a good one. A Zombie lover's dream. The book was funny, sick and the main charater was great. He thinks he is such a bad***, but the more we get to know him, and the more he gets to know himself, we discover he really does care.... some of the time.
The Undead Haze picks up approximately one year after the brutal end of The Undead Situation, the ending that I thought was a joke, because it made me..Show More » want the next book so badly. At that time I don’t even know if there were plans for this sequel or not. This audiobook is all about Cyrus wanting to find Blaze who was surprisingly separated from him at the end of the first audiobook. I missed the original feeling that Cyrus gave me, because in this book he was preoccupied with his mission of finding Blaze and because of this much of his sciopahicness was gone. This audiobook started out with a bang of an encounter with a gang of cannibals and brought much of what I wanted, I only wish there were more. Now don’t get me wrong, Knapp despite changing Cyrus’ focus, still created a wonderfully original and creative continuation of a story that needed closure. I will be looking for the next audiobook in this series, in fact more from Knapp in general, and hopefully it will not be as long of a wait as this one was.
Kevin T. Collins is not your typical or maybe stereotypical is better, narrator. He does not have the overly deep and polished voice, he does not rely solely on the the written book to carry you mind through the torment. The Undead Situation was my first experience listening to Collins, he had me hooked, and I hate to say it but this is only my second time giving him a listen and almost regret it. Collins, in my opinion, did over half of the work making Cyrus successful, sure there was a great foundation to start with from Knapp but Collins pushed it over the edge. He has a way of jarring you with his ability, that make every instance within the audiobook knock the wind right out of you.
