Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I enjoyed the storyline, but the characters were left without any real definition. Hard to follow at times. But listened to the end.
What does Gerry O'Brien bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The narrator has an annoying tone. Every new character has a higher pitched Irish voice which becomes grating. Little happens throughout the book due to the large amount of characters introduced. If you can get over the narrator's voice then all you are left with are a load of irritating characters that hold little connection to the reader.
I love a good zombie yarn, but this neither has anything new, nor does it do the old routines well. It plods through an unengaging setup, into a directionless main plot utilising adverb, simile and cliché in repeating sequences. The reading is poor too, giving the exact opposite intonation than is described (if it says "he said, deadpan", then say it deadpan). Very disappointing.
