The narration was done by Jack Wallen, Jr. does a wonderful job with this. He is easy to follow along with and progresses the story nicely. Basically he felt like everything that Evans was looking for in a narrator. He definitely brought The Orphans to life.
Comparing a book to one of my favorite movies: 28 Day Later is rough for me. I will be constantly comparing the two and seeing if the book lives up to the movie. This one did. It was more Romero based, the zombies were scary and the main character was out for vengence.
After I found myself being surprised by the horror aspects, I stopped looking at it as a single genre and I found myself enjoying it a lot more. This book is really well written. The story is incredibly scary and believable. The characters are well designed and felt like real people who would be going through the story. Even though we are not living through a Zombie apocalypse right now, this book gave me a sense of what that might feel like.
Mike Evans is someone to watch out for, he will scare your pants off but give you a wonderful story to back the horror back up.

This narrator coming right after the book prior is hidious! I almost shut the book down. The only reason I didn't is because of the first books and I was already entwined and needed to hear this next edition. Had I had to wait for this edition on audio I would have turned it off. Other than narrator the book is great!
