Good story ... but

I like the story. I can not stand the narrator. His voice grates on my ears and I have to really concentrate to understand him. That's sad. They should have gotten a better narrator. If I want another book and it happens to have this narrator, it's going to be a hard pass from me.

get this book!

seriously, if you're on the fence, just get it. I was somewhat weary of this book at first. first time listening to something from this author and narrator.. but I'm really Really glad I did. I think the best part about this book was getting to the halfway point and realizing i still had 5 more hours left! This book really sucks you in. If I had to place this book I'd say it's a cross between T.W Brown and peter Meredith, both have really good zombie series and this book felt right at home among the other really good ones. The writing is very enjoyable and the characters are pretty beleiveable. Despite the author stumbling into some of the really common mistakes like clip vs magazine .. I couldn't fault him for it. If that is my only gripe about this book, and it definitely is, then hats off to the author for keeping me engaged if not completely rooted to my seat while I worry about what might befall the survivors. By the middle of this book.. I already wanted MORE. Very glad there's at least one more book out already and hope the author keeps Howell as his narrator for the remaining book(s). If you enjoyed this and can't wait, his second book is on amazon! Enjoy! Thanks Jacy Morris for a great start to a series :)

Loving it

Great character build and story line. Easy to follow along with easy visuals to manifest in ones mind as you listen along. The reason I gave it 3 for performance is like a lot of Audio books it sort of distracts to have one voice play many characters from female to male. From Asian to African American. To street to country dialects to different octaves. I am always hoping for an Audio Book experience to become more like Classic Radio. However I give the narrator applause for trying.

Decent Bleak Zombie Story

This Rotten World is a pretty good effort. A pretty long effort too. It seems to go on forever with a relentless, bleakness.
This isn't a kind or gentle zombie story. Most are not but this one kills off the characters with abandon.
It takes place in Portland, OR. Pretty much already populated by zombies, but I digress. I didn't really get a Portland vibe from the story. While locations and streets are mentioned, they seem randomly inserted and a Portland native can't really get a good handle on where things are happening. This could have been played up to more effect.
T.L. Howell does a good job of narrating a very long trek through blood, guts and the dead.

Perfectly fun zombie story

This was so much fun. Great story following several people through the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. Great characters with believable storylines. Such a good time, I am excited to get to the next book

Just okay

The story was pretty cliche. No real character development. Too many moving parts/people with no cohesion.

Hard for me to connect.

I liked as followed but failed to connect with characters. I did find it entertaining, but a day later I can’t recall any particulars.

it says the headline is optional but it's not....

there was one part where a group went back to a bar that I thought burned down earlier in the book....but I guess I just misunderstood....or maybe it was just an error in story

Do not waste your time or money

9 chapters in. The narrative is boring, clichéd and sub-standard for even the most basic horror novel. Absolute trash.

A proper zombie apocalypse!

Don't expect a happy story about people finding themselves amidst the end of civilisation. This is a horror story. And a bloody good one too.
If you slow the reading down to 90% the narrator sounds a bit like Skinny Pete from Breaking Bad. And it lasts longer.
