Publisher's Summary

A prison doctor injects a condemned serial killer with a formula designed to keep his consciousness awake while his body rots in the grave. But all drugs have unforeseen side-effects. Before he can be buried, the killer wakes up. Hungry. Infected. Contagious. This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang… but a bite.

Who Will Be Eaten Next?

Do not even think of opening this book if you are even the slightest bit squeamish. There is brain eating, rotting bodies, skin crawling, and worm-eating flesh. It will affect everyone men, women, and children, with equal gruesomeness.

This book tells a story of one man’s journey to revenge leading to biological experimentation gone bad and gives you a glimpse of what would happen if an unknown disease were to strike in some small town USA. Actually I think the experimental drug worked as it was designed to do, but not the way the good doctor had planned.

This story had pulse pounding action to the very last word! I am going to have to add Jonathan Maberry to my favorite authors list because I just love his style. I absolutely loved the ending!

The Narration Review
William Dufris narrated this book. He has great character voices and you can always tell the difference in the characters when they speak. He put a lot of effort into making the emotions come to life. When he starts to describe some of the gruesome scenes you get the feeling he is actually looking at it and can hear the disgust building in his voice.

** Note **
I received this audiobook as a Random Act of Kindness (RAK) from Darlene over at Darlene’s Book Nook. If you haven’t heard about RAKs for books, then feel free to click on the link up on my Alaskan Bookie Blog and visit the Book Soulmates website. It is an awesome way to share the love of reading!

- Squeak

Worst Narration Ever

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Cheesy "campfire ghost story" tone and over-the-top delivery.


Any additional comments?

The story is typical Mayberry - thoughtful, detailed with just the right amount of science and fiction built in. It was hard to get fully sucked in due to the narration, unfortunately. If done by Ray Porter or Tom Weiner, this would've been a 4 star book.
