Publisher's Summary

There are no happily ever afters in the new Undead World. There are no vacations or time-outs or do-overs. There's only the endless daily grind of living or the shockingly horrific fact of death that hangs over every living creature left on the face of the earth. For some, that death lies in a single mistake or a moment of bad luck, or simply in fate. For others, that hard death hounds them day and night, relentlessly. When a huge bounty is placed on their heads, Neil Martin's misfit family is set upon by ruthless bounty hunters. They are pursued by sociopaths, sadistic ex-soldiers, and, of course, the warped Believers of New Eden. There's no refuge, no place of safety, and no shining city on a hill that will take them in. They are outcasts and doomed to flee from their enemies until they're forced to make one great stand.

Grim But Good Zombie Story

What made the experience of listening to The Apocalypse Outcasts the most enjoyable?

Very well narrated.

What did you like best about this story?

Character development, especially that of Jillybean and how a child copes with a world full of zombies and desperate people.

Any additional comments?

Interesting characters with lots of flaws and oddities make this book series more than your average zombie saga. Often it feels that the zombies are background players that frame the story, but don't play a major part other than to create the disaster everyone is coping with. The wide range of characters developed in the prior books struggle to survive and deal with the new normal. Characters aren't sacred in this series and bad things happen to them all.
The bounty hunter character started off strong but became more of a bit player. It would have been interesting to see this guy developed further.
All in all a good listen and well narrated, but start with the first story so you'll have the full character development.

THE SHADOW GOVERNMENT

LIMP WRISTED POLITICIAN
I like Peter Meredith and will continue to read his books, but this may be the end of this series for me. I liked the little girl in the first two books, but he seems to have milked that character for all she is worth and now she is annoying. This book did not offer anything new.

I did listen to the whole thing

Sands is a very good narrator.

I’m not crying, you’re crying.

No I’m not , shut up.

Yes you are.

•Feels you’ll feel in this book: So many.
•Number of times you’ll cry: At least 3 times while you’re driving in midday traffic.

So , Gray is my new favorite character , the other members of the group have grown tremendously , and that’s the best. Yet again Jilly-bean is absolutely fantastic and I’m so happy ... well... anyway. So yeah.

I cried and felt like I was looking my own

Very easy to feel bad, to feel like your losing one of your own. I can't wait to see what is coming next for the group. Hoping some get what is coming to them. Can't get enough can't stop reading

Better and better

Meredith’s characters get better and better. He cracks me up with his metaphors. Basil Sands, can’t imagine any other narrator.

I enjoyed this book,Jillybean !

I have enjoyed these book this far , they are very well read and entertaining . But when you main protagonist and zombie apocalypse best survivor is a schizophrenic 6 year old that's just to much for the imagination to hold on too, pops you right out of suspended disbelief, I could NOT imagine any of these imbasills Surviving any of this calamity they were the absolute worst bunch of people, thank god for Ipes.

Another great book in the undead world series

Where does The Apocalypse Outcasts rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's very good. Basil is a great narrator and the book was fast paced as well in terms of story progression. I really liked it.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked Jillybeans character and her psychological problems mixed with her savant style abilities. I also liked, and feel that it is important to mention, that this book whilst within a series offers a full story with an acceptable conclusion and therefore stands alone as a story. It's not just jumping or bridging the series.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I don't want to give the story away by going into detail but lets just say that the characters go through strife and hardships that test and strain them. It's good to see that not everyone who survives such a harsh environment is a shining beacon of moral virtue. It's tough to survive and survivors are tough.

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

It was well written and well narrated and I think that the author made the world seem harsh and real in a way that I imagine it would be. The characters were interesting and it was entertaining from start to finish.

Nice

book three and the story just gets better, I felt the first half of the book was a little slow and the believers just did my head in listening about them.

but, the second half was excellent and the story has progressed very nicely.

Wow... emotional roller-coaster

this book will take you up and down so many times you are exhausted after every chapter. Hard to listen to some times as yoir insides want to tear themselves apart... but you cant put it down and in the end you are glad you didn't.
