This is the first John L Campbell story I have heard and I was pleasantly surprised. It really is yet another very good title to add to the zombie gen..Show More »re.
The narration was pretty good, not RC Bray quality but still very good. The narration was slower than I liked and was easily sped up to 1.5x speed without any problems at all. This does shorten the length of the story somewhat but it is still excellent value per hour, if that makes a difference (I know it does for me on a limited budget)
The story starts off with a lot of separate accounts of survivors but towards the very end, it speeds up as the separate subplots and groups come together. I get the sense this is going to be a long series because this first book has only very briefly tackled the idea of 'why the end started'. I am going to purchase the next in the series and can only hope it is just as good as this one!
If you are interested in this type of title may I also suggest the following: Adrians Undead Diary (series) Z-Burbia (series) has a lot more violence and naughty language Mountain Man (series)
John Campbell’s zombie story continues to impress. The same comments I made regarding the first in the series is applicable:
The narration wh..Show More »ile not RC Bray quality is still very acceptable. Narration was still slow and was best listened to at 1.5x speed. The main difference between this one and the first is this story line moves a lot faster, it introduces new elements physical/spiritual dimensions. The addition of the ship and natural disasters also adds a greater impact to the listener.
I found the ending of this title interesting. It is one of those endings which delivers enough closure for this to be the end of the series, or it could just as easily continue. Personally, I do hope it continues, but I would prefer less of the spiritual influence. However, some people love that sort of stuff, just not me.
If you are looking to dabble your feet into the zombie genre, this series is highly recommended!
