Unsatisfying start to long series

The author Fite comes right out and states he is writing an old school serial. He says that he is looking to capture something along the lines of Game of Thrones in how it pulls you from one story to another as the plot progresses.

The writing is good enough here and the introductions to many characters are interesting enough to make me want to come back for more. But being the miser I am, I don't want to spend a $5-$9 for a few chapters. I know that price is going to be a sticking point for me.

I'm rating what might be a good story kind of low. Why? Because I have nothing to go off of other than a few opening salvos. People see green meteors falling from the sky. The End. Maybe this series is good, maybe its bad. All I know is I bought the first book, listened to it, and was left wanting more on many levels.

Please Write Faster!

It’s the characters that make this part of the story so good. I’ve always like the beginning of post-apocalyptic books. How everyday people, situations and problems slowly get pushed out of the picture as some strange phenomena grows in import and gravity. Part one of this series is mostly about the characters and their back stories. But it is not dry or low octane. After 30 minutes into the listen I downloaded the other two episodes. So the only negative for me is that I’ve listened to all three episodes and I now have to wait for the next installment. I can’t wait to hear what happens next. Superb narration. Highly recommended.

A Good Start, but where are the Zombies???

What made the experience of listening to The Zombie Chapters, Volume I the most enjoyable?

The writing and the performance.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Zombie Chapters, Volume I?

The little girl in the wheel chair. Very touching part of the story. Makes you hope she'll be ok in book II.

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

No.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

Even though the walking dead have not came into the picture yet, this is real good story telling. The author's note in the beginning states that this is a series. Since there are only 3 books, I hope the last book have some type of resolution or a forth, fifth, sixth, etc... book.

So far so good

Daniel Fite does good work developing several different characters in preparation for the zompoc to come. Unfortunately this short piece doesn't get down to the zombies appearing, but I enjoyed the writing, and the reading enough to search out the next part of the story.

A Postmodern, Post 9/11, Apocalyptic Coaster Ride!

Any additional comments?

"The Zombie Chapters, Volume 1" is the best start for a series I've seen in a while. Scary as F**K! If you like Disaster Movies, you'll love this. Despite the title, zombies don't show up till Volume 2. Still, the beginning isn't slow to take off. There are lots of butt-clenching moments. I give Fite high marks for vivid descriptions, relatable characters, and superb dialogue.
The narrator is easy to follow and has a good voice. (although I'm not sure his Russian accent is quite right)
I listened to the entire first volume in one sitting. That's rare for me. I bought and started the second volume the same night.
As I'm sure you can tell, I'm pretty damn excited about this series!
