Fun romp through a zombie apocalypse. Characters are easily visualized and believable, mostly, with one exception, but the story provides enough "story" to support the suspension of disbelief well enough for the reader or listener to just have "faith". I hope that there will be more ... Be interesting to find out "who did it" ...

Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

Zombies are real. And we made them. Are you prepared for the zombie apocalypse? The Smith family is, with the help of a few marines. When an airborne "zombie" plague is released, bringing civilization to a grinding halt, the Smith family, Steven, Stacey, Sophia, and Faith, take to the Atlantic to avoid the chaos. The plan is to find a safe haven from the anarchy of infected humanity. What they discover, instead, is a sea composed of the tears of survivors and a passion for bringing hope.

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

Definitely worth a credit!! If you don't let yourself get wrapped up around the "details" ...

What was one of the most memorable moments of Under a Graveyard Sky?

This is not your typical "Z" story. The virus is hopefully just very imaginative fiction but the backstory detailing the delivery method, transmission vector, and official and unofficial actions leading up to the bridges coming down...was crafted very well. It built the post Z world that the Smith family is left to deal with.

Which character – as performed by Tristan Morris – was your favorite?

The narrator does especially good work delivering Faith's lines considering their absurdity when applied to "our" reality .... But I must say, since I have listened to this series twice...His performance of all the characters is highly crafted.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

If you are left to survive in this post apocalyptic world...remember to, Keep Faith Alive...

Any additional comments?

Faith is a complete stretch but if you disregard the absurdity of her age in relation to her abilities....she rocks!
