Great continuation of the story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, just as long as they started with book 1. Starting from this point would be too confusing.

What about Andrew McFerrin’s performance did you like?

I liked everything about his performance. He's a great narrator. He does a great job with male and female voices, and changes just enough between characters to where you're not lost when the next person speaks.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, I can't recall laughing any during this book. I also did not cry, although there are several cringe worthy moments.

Still going strong

Any additional comments?

There's a line in the book at the very beginning made by Steve that made me laugh out loud at the way the narrator - Andrew McFerrin- delivered it. It was done exactly how I'd expect the line to be delivered and it helped bring me back into Brown's world easily. It was "God knows, the bones wouldn't come out of the trench on their own.... *God, please. Don't let them come out of the trench by themselves."
You'll know when you hear it.
I've said it in a previous opinion of the book series, but if you've made it this far, you know that you'll enjoy the ride.
I will say that there do seem to be a lot of characters in the books that start kind of feeling like they have a lot of the same character traits of other major players- but I'm ok with heroism in books. And, not every character that I want to see lives, does- so there's a good balance of new people to deaths of characters who have been around a while, and most die in a tragic way, that's gutsy for a writer to do - considering fans have come this far.
The book takes place at the very beginning of Winter - and then during some big snow storms that have taken place. In most cases, there won't be SO much action taking place because all of the people would want to hunker down and avoid the weather, so I can at least say that the book does a good job of at least showing some of the horrible bickering that would go on if you were locked in one place with a group of people, but luckily does NOT go overboard with completely inane conversations that would happen to people for real. (The girls never get THAT over the top girly in annoyance).
The heroes have proven themselves and most often than not always put themselves first in harms way. While that could seem to have some drawbacks, I don't think it completely does. While I do wonder when Steve and Kevin might actually fall into sheer unconsciousness for days, I would believe that the type of character that we see- this hero type, would rise among the people who don't know what to do, or how to do things to stay alive. So, I'm fine with all that.
I did find the Vignettes a little more distracting this time, since there's now a group in Egypt , a military area, and a tourist attraction, and island - and while these snippets felt more interesting in the last book, since I've seen those characters (some) before- it felt a little more jarring this time, in that- a scene with Steve or Kevin might end on a cliffhanger and I wanted to know more- and had to wait. BUT - it's good to see the rounded sphere of the world going on around the main characters to date (even though in print I *might* have skipped some of the PoV's because I was too anxious for the main stories).
Overall, this installment to the series is a great addition and I enjoyed listening to it again. I look forward to the next book, one of which I didn't catch up on this first time it was in print.

You know if you're a fan of the series and the characters by this point. I can't tell you more than what you know from the past books- but this one definitely didn't let me down.

Still going strong!

I am absolutely loving this series. I'm so happy there's a bunch of the books. The only thing I'd have to give critique on would be the narrator's "female" voice. It's kind of whiny and grating, but, that's not really important. I think this is a series I could listen to many times.

Could you prepare for zombies?

Would you listen to DEAD: Winter again? Why?

Of course I'd listen to Dead: Winter again. Why not? It's an awesome book.

What other book might you compare DEAD: Winter to and why?

Dead: Winter is part of the Dead series by TW Brown. It is well worth giving the whole series a try.

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

Andrew McFerrin is a great narrator. His voices help keep the listener spell bound. I love the Egyptian accents that he uses. He is fast becoming one of my favorite narrators.

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

Probably not a book to listen to all in one setting. You'd lose some of the story if you tried grinding it all out at once. That would take away from the spooky bits and the whole zombie vibe. Well worth giving it the time and attention though.

Any additional comments?

I love the multiple levels of the characters in this book. Each story helps show the struggles people would face in this new world AZ (After Zombies.). Warning – There is violence, death, blood, and horror within this book. There is also life, love, and laughter.

That’s what makes it awesome.

This book left me with the craving need to know what happens next in this series. It left me wondering about the supplies I’d need in an apocalyptic event. It left me wanting to make sure those I care for will be protected in any event. It also makes me wonder how anyone could prepare for events such as these within this book.
