Publisher's Summary

Set on the coast of South Carolina, an unknown infection has caused people to die and come back to life as reanimated corpses, attacking any living person.

This is the story of the survival of one man who was the benefactor of a shelter that helped him to live through the onslaught of the infected dead. Beginning with the initial days of the apocalypse, Ed Jackson watches the world die from the safety of his shelter, but there are others who are also trying to stay alive as they seek refuge. He must decide who he will take into his shelter and who he will reject, and those decisions will help him to form the bonds he did not have even before the end of the world. He and his new friends are faced with the dangers of the dead world as they are forced to leave the safest shelter anyone could possibly have in order to do more than simply exist in a zombie-infested world.

Hmmmm....

I'm always down for a good Zombie book, however.. the act of prepping and survival of any emergency takes a lot of work, The lead character was simply handed everything he needed to survive without having to work for it. learning more about the uncle who was the one who had survival instincts and set up the island, would have been more interesting to me. I Love Graham for the narration, he always does a pretty good job.

Completely disappointed

I can appreciate a story where the lead character has a fair share of luck on their side. However, this book is too much! I mean everything was neatly provided for this guy. The lack of conflict at the start of the book definitely sets up a dull story. I do not recommend this book, unless you're in the market for mind numbing boredom.

A Main Character that you can root For

If you can suspend belief in the logic of some of the MC choices then the adventure has a plot that both entertains, but does not
overwhelm with mean spirited violence much of the genre is subjected with.

Fun listen

It’s nice to occasionally find a “fairytale” type apocalyptic story where things go right. Not everything, but some things at least.

Sometimes I get sick of zompoc being more about evil humans than survival. This book was a breath of fresh air. Lighthearted. I wish the others were already narrated and I would dive right in to the whole series.

How convenient

No real struggle here, nothing unique, and so many moments of "how convenient" happening that this story should be a hard pass to anyone thinking of getting it. Graham's narration is spot on as usual and the only reason I stuck through the whole story. The story itself was lame, seriously, don't bother.
