In Moscow, the sound of bones echoes across Red Square. In America, skeletons patrol the streets of Manhattan and blood stains the cornfields of the Midwest. While in Washington, D. C., Abraham Lincoln is heading for his third term in the White House.
The best-and worst-of humanity are back with a vengenace, a skeletal army hell-bent on conquering the living and uniting the world under the banner of the dead.
Against this bloody backdrop of global horror, a small group of refugees find themselves drawn together by a single vision and a shared fate: to determine whether the last two humans on earth will survive or join the ranks of the newly risen.
Terrifying and outrageous, Skeletons is a roller coaster ride into the fibrillating heart of darkness by one of horror's scariest writers.
What disappointed you about Skeletons?
The performance of the narrator was horrendous unless you are fond of lisps and stammering during a reading. There was no production value as the narrator would repeat sentences and phrases and they would not be edited out.
Would you be willing to try another one of Peter Jude Ricciardi’s performances?

Is there anything you would change about this book?
I decided to buy this because I remember reading it in high school and wanted to see how it held up and if I would enjoy it as much now as I did then.
well...I have no idea how it holds up because I couldn't finish listening to it because of just how awful the reading was. I'm having trouble putting into words just how bad it was.
I'll give an example..."he said dreamily" makes no difference at all to the narrator, who reads it just like every other line, practically at a yell. I honestly feel like he was trying to get through this as fast as possible so he could get his paycheck. no timing, no pauses at all between sentences. just the exact same tone, no matter what is being said.
and don't even get on the narrator deciding Abe Lincoln(from Illinois) needed a southern accent.
What didn’t you like about Peter Jude Ricciardi’s performance?
better question, what did I like about it?
nothing. I hope you have changed careers by now you hack.
