Publisher's Summary

From the author of Feast and Reinheit comes a new chapter in horror....

Planet of the Dead.

News reports speak of mass panic and violence spreading across the globe. Negligent leaders hide behind misinformation. But in an age of paranoia and suspicion, who can say what is true anymore? Struggling to survive against a sweeping epidemic that has engulfed the planet, survivors will have to make hard choices in a world that no longer makes sense.

Live. Die. Or become one of the undead.

The Beginning of a Dead Planet

This seemed more to me like a collection of stories existing in the same timeline versus one story. It jumps around between different characters and their respective story lines and never really comes together. Not sure if the survivors will ever join together. With that said this is a series so don't get involved with this one if you aren't willing to listen to more. There isn't an ending to this story so I early await the next one. I enjoy the author's other novels so I have high hopes for this series.
I am a huge fan of Rick Gregory's gritty voice and happen to enjoy most of the stories he reads. This narration really impressed me. I think he did a really good job with his voice and tone in this story and it is clear that he is maturing as a narrator.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

The Zompocalypse has returned to gnaw on you again

Ok, let me get this out here and now. YES, this is a zombie apocalypse book. I know there are now like a thousand of them out there. That doesn't mean that there can't be more. This one justifiably adds to the genre, and one thing that I really love is that is doesn't hold back on the gore. I am a splatterhound, and so this was right up my alley. Lots and lots of gruesome deaths, and a lot of stupid people do stupid things and get killed (just like real life). The blood falls like rain and the bodies drop like sandbags. I really did not want to stop listening.

I think a good reason for that, aside from excellent writing, was the amazing work done by Rick Gregory. The man can tell a story. He played this like he was in the middle of the zombie horde. The fact that he makes each character distinct and unique is impressive enough, but the way he controls the story is just off the charts impressive. He is without a doubt, one of my favorite narrators. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

Whoa...

Ok, so, I finished this audiobook a couple of days ago, and took to romance novels to clear my head enough so I could sleep. The violent imagery is so extreme, I was afraid of having nightmares, lol. If this had been a movie, it probably would have garnered at least an NC-17 rating. I started this book around dinner time, and let me just say, pasta was a bad choice. So, that said, having read this author before, I wasn't surprised, but rather impressed with a level of gore I've only seen once before in a zombie novel. I am glad this is a series, and I look forward to listening to the rest. As a side note, I'm once again impressed with this narrator's ability to read this stuff aloud without audibly flinching. It's a testament to his fortitude. Well done!

Basic zombie story.

So this was your basic zombie story where characters blatantly ignore the fact the something is going on, people get killed doing stupid stuff, and often allow themselves to be cornered by slow moving undead. Over all it's a nice light read that leaves you saying sucks for them but that wouldn't have happened to me. The characters were very one dimensional and very unremarkable with the exception of surfer dude the only character with commen sense.

Zompoc

This is told from the point of view from several different characters. Each has their own short story and some are killed off rather quickly. I enjoyed each story but they all seemed to be lacking a bit. I'm hoping this was just a starting point to a good series. I've enjoyed other books by this author, so I'm definitely hoping for more. Excellent narration by Rick Gregory! He made the book interesting.

A zombie title

A little confused by this book, maybe this is setting the scene for an explosive book 2 I don't know. It seemed as if most of the characters the author introduces are then killed off.
An OK read not terrible but not great.
Will I read book2 if there is one? Maybe not sure yet.
Narration was good and added to the entertainment of the book.

Another Zombie Apocalypse

This isn't a bad zombie book. There doesn't seem to be anything new to the genre, but it is done pretty well. Told from a multi character point of view, some survive, some don't. It moves quickly, jumping from perspective to perspective. I've read worse, but would like to see something fresh or more original in the writing.

There is a difference between narrating a story and reading a story. This book was read with out a feeling of engagement or differentiation in character or scene. Maybe that impacted the fell that the book was a bit flat too.
