Publisher's Summary

The pulse-pounding conclusion to the Hater trilogy.

The war that has torn the human race apart is finally nearing its end. With most towns and cities now uninhabitable, and with the country in the grip of a savage nuclear winter, both Hater and Unchanged struggle to survive.

Hundreds of Hater fighters have settled on the East Coast in the abandoned remains of a relatively undamaged town under the command of Hinchcliffe—who’ll stop at nothing to eradicate the last few Unchanged and consolidate his position at the top of this new world order. This fledgling society is harsh and unforgiving—your place in the ranks is decided by how long and how hard you’re prepared to fight.

Danny McCoyne is the exception to the rule. His ability to hold the Hate and to use it to hunt out the remaining Unchanged has given him a unique position in Hinchcliffe’s army of fighters. As the enemy’s numbers reduce, so the pressure on McCoyne increases, until he finds himself at the very center of a pivotal confrontation, the outcome of which will have repercussions on the future of everyone who is left alive.

Good Ending

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Sad what the Haters created, and sad what Danny became. Weak and sick and wondering what the heck took place Danny finds himself in a unique position, but will he do what is right? or what he feels is best...?

Hater series

Hater, Dog blood and Them or us
I found it a entertaining series, generally I dislike British accents but this narrator didn't bug me.
The story goes maybe a third or more of the population succumb to some change that makes them incredibly violent and kill anyone who hasn't changed.

Hard to beat the second book, yet ends so well

After the second book it was hard to bring as much excitement in a dying world. Yet Moody did a great job of bringing everything to a complete circle and allowing the reader for a glimmer of hope.

Good trilogy

Loved it! I love the fact that it's not your cliche post apacolypse story line. Very good :)

Mediocre but better finish than expected

The first is better than this and the second book, but better than second book.

Unfortunately very repetitious

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The last hour had me so angry I wanted to turn it off. Not only did a few conversations end up downright ridiculous considering the characters' circumstances, but tension forced through character stupidity is about as grating as it gets when being displeased with a story.

What could David Moody have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Strip out unnecessary dialogue. Too many conversations were repeated again and again with a whole lot of 'I don't understand?!' and 'What's going on?!' dragging out obvious points.

Have you listened to any of Gerard Doyle’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

Do you think Them or Us needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. Because of the ending and I also felt like this story could have been half as long since many conversations were repeated and needlessly drawn out.

Any additional comments?

I like the core story, this just had a lot of fluff and some of the characters acting illogically, which hurts MY head.

Disappointing

Not nearly as good as the first two books in the trilogy. I felt like it was an anti-climatic ending and disappointed for having sat through the book and nothing awesome ever really happened. There was also a lot of really repetitive dialog. Really every conversation in the book could be boiled down to Danny whining that he just wants to go off in to a corner and die, and someone else saying they want him to go do something for them. Seriously, this book was set in a post apocalyptic world so I knew it would be depressing, but damn talk about annoying and abysmal. Very disappointed.
