Four-year degree in business.Trained in hand-to-hand combat. Works well with zombies.This is the resume of the last mailman on Earth. It is the near future, and the modern world we knew has been overrun and destroyed by reanimated corpses who hunt humans for food. Mankind has retreated to small pockets of civilization and practically surrendered to these walking dead. But one man routinely leaves behind the safety and comfort of his home in this new world in order to find the people and things we’ve long abandoned.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, the language was too harsh. I have a home business and listen to books while I work, having 2 boys I was not able to listen to this book when they were around, or when I might be having customers stopping by.

Who was your favorite character and why?

DJ I liked his attitude he was funny. He was strong and got things done.

Which scene was your favorite?

When DJ jumped into the pit of zombies to save his friend

Was The Last Mailman worth the listening time?

Yes, but I probably wont listen to it again

  • The Bear in the Attic

  • By: Patrick F. McManus

The beloved humorist and bestselling author returns with his most riotous collection of essays to date. Starting with his trademark outdoorsman's wit, Patrick F. McManus's newest collection ponders the strange allure of the RV, the existential implications of being lost, the baffling tendency of animals to outsmart those who wish to hunt them, and the singular pleasure of doubling the size of every fish one doesn't actually catch.

My family and I listened to this book on a roadtrip to california(from southern Utah) it was an 8 hour drive and this book made it so much fun, our favorite story was "the bear in the attic" there were some parts we laughed so hard it was almost dangerous to be driving, the narrater was great at making the fun characters in these stories come to life.
This is a great listen for the whole family, my boys were 13 and 10 at the time we listened to it and were thourally entertained. We also love to relisten to this book.

Toby Harbinger, an eighth grader at Hubble Middle School near Washington, D.C., is in big trouble. He made the mistake of selling his dad's priceless original Star Wars blaster to a lunatic who thinks he's Darth Vader and travels with a large, hairy sidekick known as the Wookiee. Now the lunatic wants more from Toby, whose only hope of getting out of this mess is to win first prize at the school science fair: $5,000.

  • The Help

  • By: Kathryn Stockett
  • Narrated by: Jenna Lamia, Bahni Turpin, Octavia Spencer, and others
  • Length: 18 hrs and 19 mins
  • Unabridged

    5 out of 5 stars 23,056

In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another. A deeply moving novel filled with poignancy, humor, and hope, The Help is a timeless and universal story about the lines we abide by, and the ones we don't.

I have not read this book only listened to it and was so surprised to find such a fun book and a great and entertaining listen. I love the narraters they did an amazing job bringing the characters to life.
