Fun!

I'm still enjoying the series and just purchased book 3. Love some of the newer characters that were introduced in this round, but am worried about the cliffhanger!

Good to listen to.

I liked it. It is definitely suitable for teens. The characters are interesting and diverse. Some parts were predictable, but there were some surprises. The narrator did a great job with the voices. I laughed out loud a couple of times.

Running wild

This book was interesting and full of action in an apocalyptic world. Throw in a nasty spoiled young woman...and you have drama!

Easy and Light listening

A fun Zombie story coming from a teenage view of events. a 10th to 12th grade equivalent but that is what makes it easy and Light traveling on the highway listening. Enjoyed the light hearted humor and adventure of the family as they made their way through the Zombie take over

Entertaining!

Would you consider the audio edition of Running Wild to be better than the print version?

I didn't read the print version but loved the audio.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Running Wild?

When Austin turned crazy.

Which scene was your favorite?

Most of them.

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

No. I laughed and felt every bit of the suspense.

Any additional comments?

Running Wild is book 2 in the Zombie Games series by Kristen Middleton is every bit as good as the first. I listened to book 1 on a five hour one way road trip and book 2 on the way back. They kept my attention and gave me company during the otherwise lonely, boring drive.This book picks up at the same spot the last one left off. With a car full of people they trek across the U.S. in search of Cassie’s sister and mother. Her father being a car salesman gets them a big enough car off the lot and they pack up to flee.
But nothing is that simple. Besides the bombardment of zombies and need for heavy weaponry (her father loves guns) there are plenty of disruptions and plot twists to keep the reader/listener on the edge of their seat. Along with that Cassie and Bryce newly formed romance continues to have disruptions as they find a pretty girl that Cassie knows from school and add her to the growing clan. And a cute soldier saved by Cassie’s mom decides to join them and he’s got a thing for Cassie. Chalk full of action and suspense.
Belle Avery is wonderful! And her voice is perfect for the series. The voice in an audiobook is everything. As a listener I have a growing list of narrators I enjoy. She’s moving quickly to the top.

The high and the mighty!

Would you try another book from Kristen Middleton and/or Belle Avery?

No, I don't understand how you can have a black belt and not fight back! Rule 1 if someone is trying to kill you, kill them first!

What do you think your next listen will be?

Anything but part 3 or 4 of this series

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She was ok.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Running Wild?

The whole kidnapping part.

just ok

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

No not really to a friend. I would tell them I had read it but its moments, just not enough of them. In the end of the main chacter forgetting her weapons or placing them outof reach at critical times. Really the mistakes they made no of them should have survived.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Hopefully a good zombie novel, which seem to be far and few between :(

What does Belle Avery bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She is a good narrator and easy to listen too, just this novel not the best material to work with.

Do you think Running Wild needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

It would have to be a lot better than the first two.

Crazy Soldiers, Catty Cheerleaders and Zombies.

I received this book via a promo code and this is my unbiased voluntary review. Cassie Wild (Or WILD as everyone annoyingly refers to her constantly) has been reunited with her dad and is planning to travel to the CDC to meet up with her mother and sister. Before she can leave however... crazy infected Austin steals Cassie away from the safety of her secure home with all it's guns, well stocked food stores and full working vehicles... in his deluded zombie ravaged mind for her safety. Kidnapped and hours away from home she escapes-failing to do survival rule number one-eliminate the Threat, leaving Austin to stalk her along the way... as she teams up with new Mary Sue worshippers- a cranky pervert old pensioner and a couple of drag queens as they all travel to the CDC in Atlanta to meet up with her dad. There's zero emotion in this story... too much of Cassies POV ends up being snarky bitchy comments about Bryce and Eva and as a character she's completely self centred. Most of their survival ideas make these characters too stupid to live... yet they struggle on. Book ends on a cliffhanger and I have a feeling book 3 really will be a dead end. I do think if this hadn't been an audiobook I would not have finished.

Good book

I enjoyed listening to this book, although there are much better zombie apocalypse books around. But it did entertain me, I always like a romantic thread to the story!

Exciting and absorbing

I really enjoyed this book, I'm addicted to this series now! The drama has increased for Cassie, not only does she has to worry about zombies, she's attracted the attention of a psychotic stalker, and has a spoiled class mate to deal with. I can't wait for book 3, this book ended on a shocking cliff-hanger! I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
