Forgettable

Can't even remember what this was about. Need I say more? Just plain forgettable.

Good ending to a good series

I don't generally like stuff like this but Tufo could sell me anything. This was a good ending to a really good series. Thanks for tying up all the loose ends.

And then what?

OMG, I hate books that just end in the middle of a sentence. It's like Mark and John looked at the clock and said, "Oh well, we'll just end it here and pick up next time."

Good story, boring reader

I liked the television show better. The book made better sense but the reader was just boring. Glad when it ended.

Sounds amateurish!

This book has some good moments and did keep my attention but it is amateurish. I am not familiar with this author but this is so grammatically correct that it seems like something written by a student fresh out of a creative writing class. It didn't feel as if the author knew how to add her own personal touch to make it unique.

Perhaps Kate Quinn should read or listen to a few books by Connie Willis, Belinda Alexandra, or heck, even Mark Tufo. Whether you like these authors or not, they have their own unique styles can be recognized almost immediately in their works. This author lacks any personal style- other than the "little problem" that she over-uses to the point of sounding ridiculous. Can't say that I would recommend this book but I would be curious to see if Ms. Quinn's writing style improves in future works.

Not sure what to say

I am not sure what to say about this book. I have generally enjoyed everything that I have listened to by Mark Tufo but with this one I found myself resisting the urge to turn it off. I will say it got better toward the end of the book and I liked the twist but it still fell short compared to his other books and I can’t say for sure if I will continue with this series. Maybe

Really good

It took me a minute to get into this story but it got really good. No happy ending, that’s for sure but well rounded characters that kept my interest. Would have given five stars if ending had not been so abrupt. Plus, I just thought someone should have milked the pour cow!

Couldn’t do it

This book is just plain annoying. I normally like dystopian novels but Not this one. I literally couldn’t stand the main character who was extremely critical of everyone and everything but failed to identify her own major character flaws. The “this equals that” and her constant foul language was so annoying that I had to shut it off. I will return this one and never select anything else from this author again.

Ok but...

Not as good as the zombies! It was a pretty good story, I couldn't really grasp hold of crocodiles or alligators for aliens. On the other hand this reader can make anything enjoyable and Talbot is still awesome!

Excellent

Best zombie series around. I am so completely hooked. Tufo is a great story teller.
