Relying on military training, guts, and pure force of will, the two of them will face a nightmare world that is intent on killing them one bite at a time.

I've just hit the jackpot! Three in a row! Three great zombie stories in a row. First there was "Dark Recollections: Adrian's Undead Diary, Volume 1" then there was "The Undead Situation" and now "Z-Risen:Outbreak". All three were a return to the boyhood enjoyment of reading batman and Robin comics’ books... you know the "bam zap boff whack" sort of stuff. Now I know I'm older and more mature… but wow! I loved the mindless action. These sorts of stories make me feel young again!

If you like to get a longer listening time per credit, then please take into consideration the narrator of this story speaks slowly. This story is easily listened to at 1.5x speed without any complaints!

The only negative I have with the story is that it didn’t end the way I was hoping. Don’t worry I won’t spoil it for you.

In conclusion, this is the type of book you listen to if you want to be entertained while taking the long commute to work without getting over involved with complex plots or intense emotional feelings. It is the type of story every stressed out not going anywhere type person (me) can enjoy to forget about everything.

Its movie guy!

That was my first thought of the narration. It's cool, but really? The entire book? But it was actually really good. The character voices were also very distinct, although sometimes the lead character seemed to change voices. I think he must have the best female voice by a male narrator I ever heard. I wouldn't have thought he could do that sounding the way he does.

The main thing with this book is the sarcastic ribbing Joel and Jackson give each other. The rude humor fits me very well and its the best I've heard. Its not at all like the Mark Tufo books. I found that humor just silly.

I found the characters had depth and story compelling with plenty of action. Not a lot of intricate plot lines, but developments with the dubious mercenaries/soldiers and shuffler zombies are intrigueing. Well, I loved the story so far and already on the next book.
