Publisher's Summary

The world has fallen to a relentless enemy beyond reason or mercy. With no remorse they rend the planet with tooth and nail. One man stands against the scourge of death that consumes all. Teamed with a genius survivalist and a teenage girl, he must flee the teeming dead, the evils of humans left unchecked, and those that would seek to use him. His best weapon to stave off the horrors of this new world? His wit.

    Story
    "I hate Zombies. So this book was great."

    As I said I hate Zombies. The combination of the humor in all that zombie horror and things going right and wrong for the main character and the great narration by Michael Kramer it's a hit. Love both books and am ready for book number three.

    Story
    "Good but too much penis talk."

    The author talks about his penis way, way too much. When you read that, imagine a number of times you imagine as too many. Double that. Then double that number.

    But once you get over rolling your eyes every time you hear a mention of the characters junk, there is actually some pretty good main character development and the book does avoid a lot of the cliches associated with zombie books (I didn't know this was a zombie book when I got it, had I known I might have passed). The supporting characters are stale, but initially interesting. The plot does keep moving and the main character is never some super well prepared individual, which is refreshing. The author didn't live out some tired fantasy of being the only guy who is prepared and ready for the zombie apocalypse.

    The voice acting is superb and that is what kept me listening. Michael Kramer brought a 1940s radio play attitude to the narration and no matter what other flaws the book may have, he makes up for them.

    Story
    "No surprises but entertaining zombie series."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Chaos Theory to be better than the print version?

    I don't know, I didn't read the print version. But I am a big Zombie/post apocalyptic/EOTWAWKI fan and this one came up on my Audible recommend feed.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love supense/gore/scary monsters interspersed with humor. I liked the lead characters slightly sarcastic sense of humor and obvious observations. Made the story more entertaining for me personally.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I am writing this review for both book 1 Chaos Theory and book 2 Conspiracy Theory.<br/>I liked both equally, and am hopeful that book 3, which I know exists will also make it to audio. I don't know that I had a favorite scene, but I particularly enjoyed any scene's with Lynch, Shipp or Remo. I found them to be the best secondary characters so far.


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

    No, no extreme reactions, but I did smile a few times at the protaganist's wry sarcastic observations of various occurences. There weren't really any tense super scary moments in this series for me. Some gory descriptions, and a few narrow escapes, none that were edge of the seat.


    Any additional comments?

    Not my top favorite of the genre, but I did enjoy it very much and I hope that book 3 is available soon. The narration was also very good. My first time to listen to any narration by Micheal Kramer and I thought he was pretty good.

    Story
    "a wonderful blend of horror and humor"

    Restucci weaves a wonderful blend of horror and humor. The story is interesting to listen to, although I don’t find a point or goal to the plot. It is simply a likeable group of survivors evading the undead. Michael Kramer as narrator did an excellent job. He fit the theme and tempo of this story so well; I don’t believe another could have done better. Three.point.five for the effort.

    Story
    "Not a happy camper."

    I have to admit I was very excited to start this story, and honestly time flew by. However before I knew it was over. No ending if I want to see what happens. You have to buy the next book. I feel the story line was great and was drawn into the story very fast and moved very fast. The the end of the book. It was like tune in next week for the conclusion. Authors who do this does not care about the readers only their own pocket book. I will not not buy any others, from this author. Will never know will the book end or will people have to buy a 3 for a ending.

    Story
    "Tries hard to be funny, but it's not clever at all"

    This is my opinion, so take it or leave it as you will:
    The sense of humor that this novel is known for? I didn't laugh very much.
    The plot? Very predictable.
    I should've trusted the dissenting reviews.

    Story
    "If I were 14"

    ...I'd probably have given the story 5 stars. OK, I'll admit it it, I find most zombie apocalypse books not worth the disc space -- they're usually either the same old boring stuff, or they go for the grossout, or both. This one had me laughing out loud for the right reasons, and I'll almost certainly read the next installment. Michael Kramer earns his usual 5 stars for performance. With Audible's return policy, it could be worth a try even if ZA isn't your genre.

    "Very Good"

    I am not a walking dead fan so it was just on a whim that I picked up this book. It was an awesome story. Well told and super funny. I loved it... will be getting the next ones in the series.

    Story
    "It's a winner :)"

    Rich Restucci has a great sense of humour. Another reviewer noted they thought there was too much (quote) penis talk (unquote) but its all tongue in cheek and not the least bit offensive. I was surprised there were so many lol moments. Not easy to match humour with serious emotion and the author has done a great job. Michael Kramer was a perfect choice for narrator and he gives the story great flavour. I will definitely be continuing with the series.

    "Narrator makes this twice as hilarious!"

    I enjoyed the humor, the odd ball characters, and the narrator is hilarious. Good zombie fiction!
