Boomstick. Samurai bat. Motorcycle leather. And the will to live among the unliving. Augustus Berry lives a day-to-day existence comprised of waking up, getting drunk, and preparing for the inevitable day when "they" will come up the side of his mountain and penetrate his fortress. Living on the outskirts of a city and scavenging for whatever supplies remain after civilization died two years ago, Gus knows that every time he goes down into undead suburbia could be his last.
I'll be forever thankful that I came across this. It's a very well crafted and constructed zombie apocalypse book, with great action and several threads, that mount up to interact with each other in a marvellous way. Character development is phenomenal. Will continue the series tomorrow. Of course it being performed by R.C. Bray just tops it all.
Summing it up - trust me. Get it. For one credit, it's a great value. I envy you - you're in for a great time.
With nearly a quarter of a million copies sold, the world's most thrilling and best-loved military zombie-apocalypse series returns, powering toward its epic and cataclysmic conclusion.
Whoever made the decision to employ R.C. Bray to read this book, should be awarded a medal and given a huge bonus. In any military, distopian or post-apocalyptic fiction, there is simply no better narrator than R.C. Bray. And the story, it not only keeps its level and pace, but sometimes it even gets better than previous parts. Being 7 books into the series, I already dread the moment when I reach its end.
In short, you won't regret it, though I definitely recommend to read / listen to these books in the original order, so start with Fortress Britain and continue onwards. You will not be disappointed.
When the Zombie Apocalypse came, one country had shut down its borders in response to a major terrorist attack. Now Fortress Britain is the last bastion of the living - with 50 million beleaguered survivors facing down a world of seven billion animated corpses. And one international team of elite special operators - supremely trained and armed, always the most skilled, resolved, and unstoppable amongst us - are humanity's last best hope for survival....
Excellent book for any Zombie fan. Fast paced, multi-threaded, characters are developed and you really start caring about them as the story unfolds. At the same time, there are some calmer and deeper fragments, with many observations about human psychology. And of course, the performance of R.C. Bray, masterful as always. Will definitely go through entire series.
For all the thousands of books that have been written about religion, few until this one have attempted to examine it scientifically: to ask why - and how - it has shaped so many lives so strongly. Is religion a product of blind evolutionary instinct or rational choice? Is it truly the best way to live a moral life? Ranging through biology, history, and psychology, Daniel C. Dennett charts religion’s evolution from “wild” folk belief to “domesticated” dogma.
This book calmly explains how religion could be perceived as a natural phenomenon evolving in our minds through thousands and thousands of years of our history. If you like Richard Dawkins, you will love this. Comparing to authors like Sam Harris, Dennett is much more sophisticated and his explanations are deeper, which does not surprise, as he is a highly trained philosopher. Reading performance suits the book and its profound and calm nature very well. Highly recommended.
