A prison doctor injects a condemned serial killer with a formula designed to keep his consciousness awake while his body rots in the grave. But all drugs have unforeseen side-effects. Before he can be buried, the killer wakes up. Hungry. Infected. Contagious. This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang… but a bite.

I got roughly 15 minutes into this, and couldn't get past the narrator. I'm not sure if he had a cold, or his voice is naturally congested, but I couldn't handle it. Maberry is one of my favorite authors, but I think he needs to stick with Ray Porter as a narrator.

I feel like he should be less "superhuman" like. He rarely makes a mistake. Overuse of "she smiled" or "he smiled". Not a terrible book, but it made me not want to finish the series.
