Would you try another book from Stephen Knight and/or Joseph Morton?

Yes, as long as they get a new narrator for this audible story. The story was fine, but I almost didn't get through chapter two because of the narrator's combination of (1) monotone voice, and (2) his making character voices so similar.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Tough to get invested fully in any of them, as they're not especially well developed.

Would you be willing to try another one of Joseph Morton’s performances?

Ahhh, so I assume Joseph Morton is the narrator? If so, then no. I didn't enjoy his reading style or monotone voice.

Was The Gathering Dead worth the listening time?

Yes, but barely, as I'm not sure I would use a credit on the follow-up book

Any additional comments?

There's a very, very weird twist to the zombies that were originally special forces soldiers. The book didn't even touch on the reason for this unbelievable and unrealistic "zombie attribute".

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Better plot; better writing; better voices. One of the main character's voices was especially annoying to me. Don't know that this story could be lifted to 4 or 5 stars without totally rewriting it.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Hopefully a better version of a zombie apocalypse book. That or an interesting business story / book.

What character would you cut from Domain of the Dead?

Captain of ship; male doctor.

Any additional comments?

Use your credit elsewhere. This is the first book I've selected from Audible that I had to work hard to get through.
