This contains 4 short stories and all are quite different from one another. The first is more like your typical zombie story while the others are a stretch to be considered zombie stories. The last two stories were quite good and stood out enough that after listening to them I forgot about the first two. Doubled back and listened to the first two again and enjoyed them more the second time, especially the second story. All 4 stories were at the perfect length and I am glad that they were not longer. All in all I enjoyed these stories and look forward to more from the author.
My main issue with the audible book is that I didn’t really like the narrator. Her narration voice was fine but when she switched to her character voices I just didn’t feel like it fit the story. Some of the way she spoke the dialogue made it seem like bad B movie lines told by an actor who has no acting experience. I have listened to The Servants by another narrator and it completely changed the feeling of the story.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Biggest problem was the audio itself. The stories are not your run of the mill Zed tales. Each one stands out, and provides a fresh perspective on the zombie genre.
The visit was a bit draggy, but it was still good. These stories make you think. I really liked the robo servant tale a lot. The only reaso this isn't 5 stars all around is because of the audio itself. I found that I wish the audiobook had more content, i.e. more stories, as the 2 hours practically flew by. I am a zombie fanatic, and really liked this book better than the majority or Romero films.
The first story made me glad that I am married and not messing around in the single world.
The second gave me a Memento vibe, what with the memory loss and all. The third story, well robo servants . . .what can go wrong? And the fourth, a bit talky, buy still good as gravy.
The price is right for these 4 shorts, and your mouth will be watering for more from th author by the time you are done . . . or maybe you will be craving human flesh!
