For the first time, the Internet phenomenon is now in print! Beheading a zombie isn't easy in a world where you're more afraid of the living than the dead. Adrian Ring's simple life is thrown into chaos when the world is ripped apart by a plague of undead and legions of desperate survivors. Retreating to Auburn Lake Preparatory Academy, Adrian attempts to rescue friends and family on the way while dancing around his impending insanity over who and what he left behind, and evading maniac survivors.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you are a zombie fan at all, then you definitely need to check out Adrian's Undead Diary. Dark Recollections is the first book in the series and James Foster has done a WONDERFUL job at bringing Adrian to life for his listeners.

Who was your favorite character and why?

*AA meeting style:* Hi my name is Jamie and I have a crush on Adrian. Thank you.

What does James Foster bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Hearing Adrian talk about his daily adventures gives the reader the chance to sit back and imagine themselves in his shoes, fighting the undead alongside him, helping to find and secure a place to live after the world falls apart.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book (series) has made me laugh out loud, shed more than a few tears, get so mad I threw something, and so scared that I was afraid to hear what came next. Chris Philbrook has a way of getting into the mind of his readers, drawing them in and weaving through their grey matter until they are completely immersed in the world he has created.

Any additional comments?

I am normally not a big audio book person, I prefer to read the words myself. However, James was able to catch my attention and keep me hooked throughout the story, which is quite a feat. Kudos to him, and to Chris for such a wonderful storyline!!
