Is there anything you would change about this book?
Overall the story is interesting, but I am not a big fan of the narrator. He makes a great effort but is rather mono tone. I did like the occasional sound effect that was thrown in as it made for something different.
How could the performance have been better?
I think with a different narrator the overall could have been a solid 4 star book.
Any additional comments?
First let me say that I have read a lot of books in this genre and a lot of people in these books are HOOAH kill them all Army/Marine infantry type heros who ALWAYS seem to make the right decision so it makes this book hard to listen to because they keep repeating the same mistakes over and over again. I would like to believe that the average man/woman would learn from blunders that get others killed. Paul is looked to as the "leader" of the group and accepts the responsibility for the deaths of those around him but doesn't seem to learn lessons and apply them to his current situation. When his wife is killed his inability to function is completely understandable and his downward spiral is hard to watch. All that being said that is what I like about the book because it is very different from most other books of this type. If you are looking for a good book I would recommend you buy this in print and read it instead of getting the audio book, but I would say that if you can get past the narration it is a good story and I will be getting the next book in this series just because I want to know what happens next.

Ok so it's zombie fiction and yes it's supposed to be normal people but come on you have just been attacked woke up by a nightmare about getting eaten and the you feel sexy. Sorry I can't buy into that. Too much sex for survival fiction. Yeah have sex but keep it for when the characters at least feel safe not just woke in a strange house with no idea if the sentry is awake asleep or dead. Sorry it's stupid if they made mistakes like that how did they survive this long.
