Publisher's Summary

A suicidal nudist strolls into traffic. An eccentric Buddhist claims he can occupy other people's bodies. All the while, whispers of a new form of entertainment blow through town. Prompted by these strange occurrences, Marty Raft, a not-so-gentle giant, investigates and discovers underground clubs peddling music that induces an out-of-body experience. Marty and a wannabe comedian, Corey, set out to prove these special frequencies are nothing more than a hoax, or at worst, a mass-drugging. Instead, they uncover a secret with world-ending possibilities. If you can hear the music, it's already too late.

A brilliant and unique take on a classic genre

Soundtrack to the End of the World is a great story with a really interesting premise that makes it something unique and well worth reading. I’m going to try not to spoil it too much because part of the enjoyment of the book is in the unraveling of the mystery, but I have to say that it is very different from your typical zombie apocalypse novels. The separation from the traditional and predictable elements is smart and refreshing. If zombie apocalypse books aren’t your thing, you really should give this book a try. If the stories in that genre are your thing, then you REALLY have to give this book a try. I gave it a shot because I received the book for free, but after I finished it, I have no doubt I would have purchased it if I had known how good it was.

In addition to the interesting premise, Rapino just writes a damn good story. The characters had a nice depth to them, the plot development had a balanced pace, and there were plenty of twists and turns along the way that kept me engaged and interested. The ending left me with some unanswered questions, but I think the mystery was intended. As the book comes to a close, the audience and the characters are left with a shared uncanny sense of puzzlement over the events that occurred over the course of the narrative. You will be disappointed if you read the book thinking all the mysteries will be revealed at the end.

This is the second book I’ve listened to that was narrated by Eric Moore and he’s given a consistently great performance both times. He’s got some talent producing a wide range of voices for different characters, including both male and female characters that is convincing. His tone adds to the suspense and mystery to books like the Soundtrack to the End of the World. I’d recommend giving any book he narrates a try.

Original Take On Zombies

In a world where zombie apocalypse stories are a dime a dozen it's exciting when you're able to enjoy one that exists a little outside the limited imagination where the rest reside. That's where you're at with this story. A group of interesting characters deal with strange events that just might portend the end of the world. They're fleshed out and enjoyable to read about and the story takes them through a variety of situations both horrific and human. The narrator did a solid job as well lending his voice to this unique story.

Wear Earplugs

I was expecting a typical zombie story and was quite surprised with this unique Post-Apocalyptic zombie book and loved it. I enjoyed the characters of Marty, Corey, Skinny, Naomi (and her aura readings), Dr Pepper and Anna. There was laugh out loud moments then heartbreak, screamers and a lot of action. Just listen you will not regret with good narration and different ending. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. THANK YOU

Original and interesting

This is a new take on zombies, and I loved it! I won't give any spoilers, but this is a must read! You won't regret listening.

Eric Bryon Moore has done an amazing job with his narration. I totally enjoyed the voices used he's used for each character.

Refreshing Take on the Zombie Genre

Bizarre yet refreshing take on the zombie genre. Admittedly, I wasn't aware it was a zombie story when I requested this so that was a pleasant surprise.
Good storyline and not particularly gory or violent so would be ok for younger readers or for those a little squeamish.
