Publisher's Summary

Samuel Todd is a regular guy: ...Failed husband... ...Loving father... ...Dutiful worker... ...Aspiring rockstar. He had no idea if anyone would care, or take the time, to read his daily blog entries about his late night observations. But what started as an open monologue of his day-to-day life became a running journal of the firsthand account detailing the rising of the dead and the downfall and degradation of mankind...

The Zomblog series continues in Zomblog II; Zomblog: The Final Entry and Zomblog: Snoe..

Story seemed to be good...

Audio quality was VERY bad as the story progressed... Over sampling/dubbing/bad edit-jobs that really made the story hard to follow and understand (and maybe more importantly ruin the climatic building of certain spots)... It started off with only being slightly the case, but from halfway to the end it was too much to forgive... I hope the next installment can get the production quality enhanced or I will have to quit the series... I love TW Brown, too!! It's a shame the recording was as bad as it was...

OK, won't read it again

Drove me crazy. Please learn to pronounce city's and landmarks in the PNW correctly!
I'm a native Oregonian and it was horrible to hear someone butcher our city's and landmarks through out an entire 8 hour book.

Semi-interesting!

A journal-style zombie apocalypse yarn. A semi-interesting start to a series. The narration by Erik Byron is not terrible but it could use some personality for impact. Character background is lacking but perhaps it doesn’t matter since they don’t hang around long. I hope book two improves on these negatives. Three.point.five for potential.

Awesome

I got a membership with Audible just to have the book on audiobook form, I like everything about the story, narrators, I love that it starts in my home state of Oregon, and I honestly would want to go Zombie when my time came, I'd stick to the Stoners ,get my high pothead.😉

Took a min to get used to the format

I haven't listened to a book before that was broken up like this. I am not really a blog reader so it took me a little bit to get used to it, but once I did I liked it. get the action scenes without getting all the "boring" in-between. although I am a fan of the "boring" parts in books too :) there are times I had to go back and relisten because I felt I was missing something every now and then, but I really enjoyed the book!

Good story soso reader

I enjoyed the story, liked the diary style format ,
But the reader was a little flat for my taste, but that’s because I’m used to reader’s that do voices for the different characters it’s possible that the reason he didn’t do that was because it is diary format so he’s always reading his own words .
All that being said I did enjoy it.

audio editing

This book had such potential to be amazing but man that audio editing is just horrible. What someone at quality control asleep or something? Did the author even bother to review it? really dissatisfied and disappointed in the lack of emotion in the voice actors.

Blogging for Zombies

So this was a decent Zombie apocolypse story. It starts out with Sam, your average adult newspaper boy blogging then journaling his experiences and observations about the sudden plague that descimated the world and the zombies who now roam about looking to chomp their next victim.
Sam was an excellent average Joe hero, and his voice narrated by Erik Byron was clear, engaging and enjoyable.
Descriptions of gunk, gore and obnoxious odors were vivid.
Sam details all the ppl he meets in his travels, always searching for a safe place to call his new home.
He meets Meredith along the way who becomes his person. By his and hers own admission, they would not have matched pre zombie world, but now are happy.
I will freely admit that a BIG twist occurs about two thirds of the way into the story that threw me out if the story and made me irrationally angry at the author. I stopped listening, just put the book aside. I stopped listening for over a week, But kept thinking about the story And eventually picked backup and listens to the rest of the book. I really like TW Brown's writing style, I like this zombie story, I'm glad I went back to finish it.
I admit that my reading preferences must, absolutely must have a hero or persons that I can like and cheer for. No matter the genre. The author pulled a fast one and I wasn't a fan.
But the story was good, The zombies were suitably nasty, and the bad guys are scary. The writing was nicely descriptive and yes, I do believe I will move on to the next book. Only slightly miffed about shocking twists.
Shaking my virtual fist at you TW Brown, but you've got me hooked.

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC..you must try it.!

What did you like most about Zomblog?

I liked the blog form, and I adored the characters. The story itself is really brilliant. I love the way the world has went, and I love the zombies. They are totally believable.I love how it starts as an online blog..to a journal on the run.And mostly I love when the journal is passed to Meredith...!!

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favourite character is Meredith, because she's a really good survivor..!Sam is a really good guy, he's like a hero because he helps whoever he can..but being a good guy doesn't always get you far..!all the characters are brilliant, even the not_so_nice_ones

Have you listened to any of Erik Bryon and Emily Dane ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No, I haven't..yet. (I've listen to snoe audio..narrated by Laura stahl)But I have read the books, which is why I will be even more excited when I get the next audio..!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, but it would be a spoiler if I said exactly what. I will jus say I was crying...for real crying..

Any additional comments?

This is one of the best zombie reads/ listens Ever. It's well written, extremely well thought, and I doubt any other author could really touch the heart of readers, as t w Brown does.I have to say that this audio was FAR FROM BORING..and the blog form works a treat. This story is far from a "cliche" (as someone has said)If having read anything like it before..it's amazing
