Great new installment. I was sad to see a couple new characters go!! It was nice that they met someone who was good. The use of grenades was hilarious overkill. I loved Koala’s truck driver comment! Small world.

Riley is such a hero and this installment shows just how awful some humans would be during the zombie apocalypse. Patches takes on a new light. Baby Zack’s change is an inspiration! Innocent BenBen. BACON!! I like adding a new character in MIA. And the French fries were funny. Gerald & Jerome’s final scene was sad.

After listening to the first chapter I bought the other available books in the series. David Tenant has an amazing voice. The story is an old one but he breathes new life and excitement into it! I've challenged my 7 yr old nephew to read more books this summer, this one is perfect. Fun for adults who also know Tenant as the Doctor.

Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

Former naval doctor Peter Crane is summoned to a remote oil platform in the North Atlantic to help diagnose a bizarre medical condition. But when he arrives, Crane learns that the real trouble lies far below on "Deep Storm", a stunningly advanced science-research facility built two miles beneath the surface on the ocean floor. The top-secret structure has been designed for one purpose: to excavate a recently discovered undersea site that may hold the answers to an ancient mystery.

I love a good Indiana Jonesish romp thru new territory!! I like the archeologist feel and Crane is a great new character, a naval doctor! There were times I felt he was a little naive for who he was supposed to be, more civilian than any military background but it was a fun book! I liked the final reveal of the danger.

Famine. Death. War. Pestilence. These are the harbingers of the biblical apocalypse, of the End of the World. In science fiction, the end is triggered by less figurative means: nuclear holocaust, biological warfare/pandemic, ecological disaster, or cosmological cataclysm. But before any catastrophe, there are people who see it coming. During, there are heroes who fight against it. And after, there are the survivors who persevere and try to rebuild. THE APOCALYPSE TRIPTYCH will tell their stories. Edited by acclaimed anthologist John Joseph Adams and bestselling author Hugh Howey, THE APOCALYPSE TRIPTYCH is a series of three anthologies of apocalyptic fiction. THE END IS NIGH focuses on life before the apocalypse. THE END IS NOW turns its attention to life during the apocalypse. And THE END HAS COME focuses on life after the apocalypse.

I know, surprising right? Not one crappy story. All were at least good. Of course these are all pre-apocalypse stories and there's only so many ways the world can end? Some may be a bit predictable but some had some nice spins. All in all this kept me interesting from beginning to end. A nice feature is that each story us one audible chapter so it's easy to go back and listen to a specific story again. My favorites were by Scott Sigler & David Wellington but they were all good!! Worth a credit.
