What made the experience of listening to Odium II the most enjoyable?

I love the narration, very pleasant and easy to listen to, good pace, nice voice and a variety of "voices" to keep it fresh, some were really fun to listen to as well. I am a big fan of Odium so I've been waiting for the sequel!

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

It was good, fun read. Very fast paced, action packed. I enjoyed it very much. A couple of unique and weird concepts I haven't seen before in zombie plots. Curious to see where this goes.

Any additional comments?

I would definitely recommend to start with the first Odium book which was really good. The first book has a little more character development and gives you a real sense of who Nina, Mikey and Emily are. The second book was good as a sequel, as it moves very, very fast.

Would you listen to Odium again? Why?

Yes, I would. I am a big horror fan and this was a good book. I like to go back and re-read or re-listen to enjoyable stories. Defintely worth it! I am even thinking about gifting out a copy to my sister, it was a fun, full of action, scary book! I also liked that Nina (the main character) was just an average woman who found herself surviving, sometimes by luck and chance and sometimes by relying on her own strengths.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Odium?

*SPOILERS*I like when Nina stood up for the little girl in the start of the story, it really helped me to connect with her and made her likeable. I like when they are searcing old man Reily's garage and the shit hits the fan. I also liked when they cleared the hub building, I wish they would've stayed there a bit longer and defended themselves. I want to know why the zombies found them all uphill by the trailer in the woods? How or why did that happen? Did the forgotten lead them up there on purpose to flush them out, or was it just coincidence?

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

Jennifer Reilly has a smooth, soothing, and expressive voice. I truly can envision each of the characters as she brings them to life with her talents! It is really nice listening to her, I really enjoyed the book thoroughly!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES! But it is too long for that! I really couldn't wait to see what happened to Nina next.

Any additional comments?

WHERE IS THE SECOND ONE? The ending wasn't really an ending but more like a pause in the story. I hope there's another one coming because I want to FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!
