40 ROLLS OF ASS CLEANING GOODNESS

If my headline bothers you, stop now, you will hate this book. Augustus Berry is not the most cultured of men. He is fat, balding and loves to drink himself to a stupor. He has no military experience (how unique is that for a Zombie book.), he survives, because he has watched enough horror movies to know the correct way to behave in an apocalypse.

This is gory, scary and smelly. Yea, you will smell things you don't want to smell. It is not just bloody and gory, it is very scary. Watch out for the Stephen King's "Misery" scene, but mostly watch out for the babies!!

At the time I am writing, this is free. Get this in your library before someone changes their mind. This is the best short story I have listened to, Paid for, or otherwise in a long time.

R.C. Bray is one of those narrators that is the tipping point for a book, when you are trying to decide if you should purchase.

Not Sure About This Series?

I got this after listening to the Mountain Man and I get why the reviews for The Hospital are on the average side. In the Hospital you get a taste of who Gus is but just a taste. Do yourself a favor and get The Mountain Man. You'll get to know Gus better and enjoy Mr. Blackmore's fine story telling skills. I really liked that story and I am looking forward to more of the Mountain Man.

Lovely freebie!

Any additional comments?

This is a great freebie, with also a free chapter to his book topped on the end... a little gory, but a very gripping short story. Hoped to see more from this chappie, but only 1 other listed :( I shall; be getting that next book shortly!

Dark zombie short story

This is quite a dark, gory zombie tale.

Darker than the Walking Dead, In my opinion. Some of the aspects of the story seem to be in there just for shock value. Not really my taste, I won't bother with any more in the series.

Great

Would you consider the audio edition of The Hospital: The FREE Short Story: The First Mountain man Story to be better than the print version?

Yes. I love that the story gets told so well

Have you listened to any of R. C. Bray’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Keeps up the momentum through the other stories

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The gore factor and the way he describes so was but so gross but great narration throughout the book. I was intrigued to know more of this story

Any additional comments?

I brought the 2nd one because I need to know what happens

Over the top gore

It's a zombie book so I guess... what do you expect? Not truly brutal or shocking, just gore and cliche horror type character/monsters to the point where it's cheesy. It's a bit of a pity because it was OK before it went over the top.
