Publisher's Summary

Vivian and Hadley find themselves in a situation that is even more threatening than the dead walking the earth. Kidnapped by armed men and taken deep into Las Vegas, they're cut off from anyone who cares about them and thrust into a world so sick and twisted that it can only be described as madness. With little hope of being found, Vivian and Hadley must team up with one of the very men who abducted them if they have any hope of escaping their new nightmare.

Watching Vivian get thrown into the back of a van almost tears Axl apart, and he's determined to find her no matter what it takes. With the tension growing between him and Angus, Axl finds himself wondering if the price will be his relationship with his brother. Putting both old and new wounds aside, Axl and Angus must infiltrate the group holding Vivian and Hadley and make their escape through a zombie-ridden Vegas.

    "Big story"

    This book manages to achieve multiple climaxes...

    The one main story was really enough, but it kept going and when you think that that must be the end, it goes on for one more climax and an exciting conclusion. I was a tiny bit unsatisfied with one resolution in the end, but this was deliberate by the author but I'm unsure why. It kinda gnaws at me. I was so on edge for much of this book.

    The strangest thing was when I was worried about a plot development and thought they would miss it, but no, they anticipated it too! They even had an emergency plan "in case", yet crap still happens anyways.

    My past gripes were answered and it turns out the author was just keeping me in suspense during the previous two books. I also figure Angus was/is just a bit crazy so he gets a free card to act a strange. In this book it does turn out he isn't as simple as everyone thought he was.

    Both narrators are very good and I think it's great that there are two. You'd think that they would narrate at the same with each doing the appropriate gender voice, but I guess they must have tested that and maybe it sounds funny. Like other books with two narrators, each takes over the whole chapter when it's either Axl or Vivian. Luckily it doesn't happen too often that Patrik Lawlor has to do female voices, particularly when you know there is a good female narrator available who could have just spoken the female lines. He was a bit over excited at the start, but I guess so was Axl.

    I'm really glad there is more coming in this series, I hope it never ends.

    "Very good series"
    What made the experience of listening to Mad World the most enjoyable?

    Very good series, she tells the story step by step so you don't feel like your missing anything! However I did not care for the narrators voice that did Axl in this one! He's suppose to be a guy in his 20's but sounds like a man that's probably in his 40's. Nothing youthful in his voice. I definitely preferred the lady who did all the narrating in the 1st two! Even with that said, still worth buying it!


    Any additional comments?

    Currently on the 4th book and super sad that there is no audible for this one or the last 3! Probably wouldn't have bought the audible versions for any of them and just read the books! I like to listen to a book while I do laundry, clean the house, cook dinner, drive etc. and that was a bummer that I can't finish the series that way!

    "Its just smut"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, There is far too much emphasis on sex in the book, I am sick of hearing about his "stormy eyes" etc. I have no desire to listen any longer.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    One Second After


    What three words best describe Hillary Huber and Patrick Lawlor ’s performance?

    Choose Another Book


    Do you think Mad World needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, I hear that it does already have one, I intend to ask for my money back.


    Any additional comments?

    It is zombie stuff, this really doesn't need sex to have a decent love story in the midst of all of this

    "not my favorite of the series...but entertaining "

    so much of the story focuses on Vivian's time at a casino. it felt like an entire book about one day. also, it was nice to have a male narrator, but the narrator chosen changed the vibe of the book quite a bit. i didn't love the book but still interested in what comes next.

    "Good story"

    I liked it, but. Axel. No offense to the speaker, but it just didn't match her version she's been giving or his personality. He sounded so aggressive, like he's spitting out the words. I'm from Alabama, I know rednecks lol, Axel's & Angus's. They're not all aggressive and talk fast. Although the misuse of contractions was right, southerners don't hit every sound on a word and the o sound ow, like no is naw, could is cu-ed. Axel came across as smart and level headed, he would be a slow southern talker. The voice ruined it for me. Even when talking about her he couldn't stop aggressively spitting out the words like he's trying to hurry and her them out.
