nothing really all that special. I've listened to hundreds of book on here. this one is fast paced but it is action sex action sex... if you are into that then it is good but if you like meaning from what you listen to then this book sucks. plus I hate the reader, he is boring and doesn't have different voices nor is he consistent with accents. I won't be continuing this series!

This is the way the world ends. For the last time. A season of endings has begun. It starts with the great, red rift across the heart of the world's sole continent, spewing ash that blots out the sun. It starts with death, with a murdered son and a missing daughter. It starts with betrayal and long-dormant wounds rising up to fester. This is the Stillness, a land long familiar with catastrophe, where the power of the Earth is wielded as a weapon. And where there is no mercy.

I listen to a lot of fantasy books on here and am always on the look out for new ones. I often read the reviews before I pick a book. this book had mixed reviews either people hated it or they loved it. I think this is a really decent book, a lot of the ideas are new, and today that is hard to find. I really enjoy the character development, and their relationships. I hate phoney character relations and I find in a lot of fantasy they write their main love plot like they are writing princess bride or something. This book didn't do that they had more real world complicated relationships. as a whole this novel is worth the time, but if you are sensitive to foul language or realistic slightly broken characters you should read Twilight or something...

This is a good book, I listen ti filler books like this one between epic fantasy series. worth the point and time to listen. Kate Reading is a fantastic storey teller, and the novel is nothing like it's movie!

This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there’s either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills - and there’s nothing wrong with Joe Ledger’s skills. And that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because he’s a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can’t handle....

Would you listen to Patient Zero again? Why?

Probably not, but not because it wasn't good. Because I only ever read most books once.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Patient Zero?

The science.

Any additional comments?

I was disappointed that this isn't a series, I was under the impression that it was a zombie out break series. But it's not, every book has a different villan and a different threat. Which is OK if you're into non stop action secret agent books, which I am not...
