It's been twelve years since the undead hordes swept over the earth forcing mankind to the brink of extinction. We now live like rats, scavenging in the ruins of our fallen civilization as the dead hunt us night and day. There is little left to scavenge, however. Grocery stores were emptied ages ago, gas tanks have long been dry and bullets are so precious that a man is lucky to have two to his name. Still, we survive. But for how much longer? Instinct and love have combined to turn Darwin's theory on its head. The strongest didn't survive in this world. They were the first to die, leaving behind a generation of orphans. It's a generation that's never had a full belly. It's a generation that has no idea what an Xbox did, or what algebra is for. It's a generation of children who never laugh out loud, and who have learned to cry softly because the dead are always near and the dead are always so very, very hungry.

Not a bad zombie story. Somewhat interesting characters that grew with experience. Needs some back stories to explain a few things.

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

Would you listen to The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck again? Why?

Need to re-listen to it since I probably missed some parts. Parts at the end concenig the life experience which changed him should be introduced sooner.

What about Roger Wayne’s performance did you like?

Relating to life experiences were outstanding. Even if I don't have the same, it was easy to relate. I believe all of us can point back to similiar experiences which shaped us in some way.

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

Not movie quality.

Any additional comments?

In today's potitical climate, shoud be a must read for both the far left and far right. Dreamers and liberals should definately read.
