I listen to a lot of zombie stories; recently there have been a some excellent titles. This one is just as good as any of those. But it just wasn't my cup of tea. This one has a lot more of “boyfriend/girlfriend” issues. To be honest I really dislike listening to this sort of stuff, I really dislike listening to sex scenes particularly when riding on public transport!
Whenever the story line moved away from the teen love relationships it had me gripped, the story quickly sped up and the tension was perfect! In fact the last 2 and half hours of this story was brilliant!
The man character in this one is the female version of the main character Zach from 'Z-14'.
The female narrator did a great job with the main character. But the male voices seemed forced. Not enough to make it painful. If I was thinking about purchasing another book narrated by Erin Moon I would definitely listen to the sample first. I suspect her voice would not be suitable for a story told mainly through a male character.
The speed of the narration was not an issue and I only had to increase the speed to 1.25x This gives you a good 8 hours. Might be important if you watch your credit/per hour ratio.
My buying advice if you like your end of the world zombie style genre told through the eyes of a warrior teenage princess. Then this is a winner. Even if you don't but like it told from this type of perspective, it is still pretty good… it just wasn’t my cup of tea!

I could not get into this cringe worthy book. I think the principle of the story was good but the writing and performance was so bad that I couldn't even get through it. This is the first book that I've tried to listen to for the story alone but the writing was so bad that I just couldn't. I ended up returning it. I don't know why this book every got published. It's just so bad.
