    Story
    "Very hard to listen to at first."

    I tried starting this for months and always got about halfway into the first couple of chapters before stopping and going to something else. Finally made myself stick with it. It tirned oit to be ok but I don't think I'll be picking up anything else in the series.

    "amazing book. how isn't this a TV series?"

    The story and reader were amazing. The audio quality however.... terrible. Still, that was easy to ignore.

    Story
    "World War S"

    Like a 3rd person super hero version of World War Z (the book), this collection of short stories is gripping and satisfying. Can't wait to experience more in the series.

    Story
    "I always love Luke..."

    so it is difficult to know how much his naration influences my opinion of a story. I was hesitant to dive into this anthology style book; I prefer long series when I can find one worth following.

    That hesitancy was soon gone. The story concept was completely new and fresh to me. The telling through different views only hightened the realism and mystery of the idea. The order of the stories also smoothly led the reader down and down into the horror of the wild card virus and the seedier side of city life that most of us only see in movies. Moving through time added weight and hope, but never let the reader clearly possess either, just like real life I suppose.

    Often scifi that delves into these subjects gets dated with age. I didn't find that here. I was curious and moved through the whole story and only wished that I had more time with each new character introduced. Well done.

    Story
    "Maybe the worst book I have ever read!"

    Maybe the worst book I have ever read and since I have been reading everyday my whole life (I'm 58), that is saying something. I can list the books I couldn't finish on one hand with fingers left over, but I just couldn't finish this one. It is a mash up of boring, d-grade movie, gobbledygook. My advice to the reader is, "just don't". My advice to the publishers and authors, "next time, just say no".
