Publisher's Summary

The full release of The Last Town serial, with new original content!

It started in the Middle East. A flu-like plague that infected thousands and killed roughly 10 percent of its victims. Those who died awoke once again, but they were no longer among the living - they came back as soulless, carnivorous corpses who desired only one thing: to feed on living human flesh.

As the infection spread, across Europe and the rest of the globe, cities were overwhelmed. Nations fell. Humanity flickered like a candle flame in the wind.

In the United States: the nation's great cities are becoming hunting grounds. New York, Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles.... All are falling victim to hordes of shambling dead who want only one thing: to devour the living.

Single Tree, California, is a small resort town in Inyo County. Between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, it's easy to overlook. And that's exactly what the citizens of Single Tree want, for the stenches and those fleeing them to ignore the town long enough for it to be transformed into a desert fortress at the foot of Mount Whitney.

But time is not on their side. Not only do they have to worry about the dead.... they have to fear the living.

One of the best I've listened to.

This has got to be one of the most exciting zombie apocalypse novels I have listened to. It is long, 24+ hours and the writing is excellent, the action and tension unstoppable, and the characters well defined and quite likable. This is the tale of a billionaire industrialist providing masses of men, weapons and equipment at the beginning of the apocalypse to fortify and save his home town. The basic plot is quite unassuming, but as I’ve said the writing and tempo is excellent. I can heartily recommend this novel to any zombie fan.

Generic with poor audio

Not bad, but nothing new.

The standard zombie apocalypse story you have read 100 times.

Interesting enough to finish, though. Not a waste of a credit.

Narration was neutral at best, but a large portion of the audio is full of background static. White noise like you would hear in a really old recording. Unprofessional, as even inexpensive recording equipment or simple post-process could have prevented that from making the final cut.

Average Dystopian Tale

Very average dystopian tale. However, you get the whole series in one fix...24hrs. The story could have been taken much further in that time. Especially since the characters are well thought out and there is some intriguing concepts that could have been developed more.

Narration is awful, but I think it speaks to low production standards and not the narrator.

Terrible story and narration

The narration was painful to listen to and in the end I gave up. The story was drawn out with far too many characters and side stories going on. With no pause between jumping scenes and characters the story is just one big muddle. Such a shame as I have enjoyed Stephen Knights precious zombie books immensely.

Suspense filled listen.

If you could sum up The Last Town in three words, what would they be?

Anxiety raising book!

What did you like best about this story?

The unselfishness of one of the main characters is the better part of the book.

Have you listened to any of Lee Alan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first time listening to Lee Alan so I could not give an accurate compare.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Escape towards hope and a future.

Started off rough but I enjoyed it.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I almost gave up on it withing the first 30 mins. Rough to listen to, the narrator and the quality of the audio were pretty harsh. Give it a few hours and it levels out for the most part.

Would you recommend The Last Town to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes, A slightly different take and I found it enjoyable for the most part.

Would you be willing to try another one of Lee Alan’s performances?

Yes,.

Was The Last Town worth the listening time?

Yes, one nice thing, very long covered a lot of hours in the truck

Military and vehicles that’s about it.

Very disappointed with this one. It’s all
about fighting and either big or expensive vehicles and not a lot else. By the end, I didn’t even care who survived as there was hardly any character or real relationship development.
