Overall the stories are amazing

Book zero starts and the reader is looking into the life of Dan, a police officer, who wants nothing more than to get home to his family. Little does he know that he and the rest of the town are in for a really big ordeal.

The audio for book one was amazing. The narrator was perfect and paced his words with enough pauses so my mind could wrap around the imagery. As I listened to Dan discovering his wife, just sitting in a chair, neither talking or averting her eyes, I knew something serious was going to happen, I just didn’t know when. Fortunately for Dan, he had his spidey skills working and knew something was amiss. Unfortunately for Dan he did not know his wife was about to go all crazy up in their dining room. She did have the presence of mind to lock their daughter into her bedroom before she went all crazy zombie (not zombie though, just crazy). The narration was seriously spot on for this. There was enough intensity but enough curiosity in Troy Duran’s voice that it was like watching a movie. You know something is going to happen by all the dang clues but you don’t know how or when!

What’s weird is I really do not know what these people are. We do find out that it’s an experiment on the town and how it is happening but not why. Book one ends on a massive cliff hanger, but not before lots of people get their guts ripped out. I only know that the people behind this “experiment” must be sadistic bastards because this was intense!

Book two starts with some new characters. Same great narration and audio. Story lacks a bit of something that book one had. Maybe the intensity and the introduction is now over so it’s missing something. Still fantastic. I’m curious if the characters from book one are going to show up somewhere later in the series. I’m really hoping readers aren’t introduced to characters that mean nothing to the overall story, but this is horror so it would not surprise me. Overall this one didn’t have enough oomph but still solid for a beginning to the story.

Definitely do not read book three, Crossroads, without the others. You need the beginning character set ups to understand what is going on. Not much set up is in this because the characters are already explained in the previous books, in detail. The overall pacing has picked up, and there were already parts where it was crazy! There are some slower portions where the characters catch their breath before they have yet another issue to deal with!

Overall the stories are amazing. I’m very glad I got to listen to the first few one after another. Made for a great read.

If you don’t like “zombies” that run, this may not be for you. I pictured this like that Crazies movie. Again, narration and audio was spot on!

Holy Sh@#!

Where does Contamination Boxed Set rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Being that this is my first venture into audiobooks this is definitely a 5 star rating. It is seamless and flows just like reading the book. I tend to get absorbed in the world and characters.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Contamination Boxed Set?

My most memorable moment while listening to the audiobook was my loss of time. I have learned that I can not listen to this at work while trying to work because I am unable to work.

Which character – as performed by Troy Duran – was your favorite?

I can not narrow down one character because they are all so good. Tony Duran does an excellent job at portraying each character and the situations they are in.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Contamination: The Turn to Chaos

Any additional comments?

T.W. Piperbrook is absolutely brilliant. His take on this genre is a one of a kind and with each book the characters get deeper and more robust. I look forward to more from him and the continuation of Contamination.
