An enjoyable listen.
What drew me to this was the fact that there were Vampires and Zombies in this story!! It sounded so good, so I had to give it a go, and even though I didn't love it, I'm still glad I did. It's an enjoyable listen.
Plot wise, it was pretty slow at the start and I struggled with it. I found a lot of time was spent doing needless things but being the first book in the series, I figured it was setting the scene. Anyway, I enjoyed the fact that we have a zombie outbreak and then the vampires decide to make there presence known. So the survivors not only have zombies to deal with, but they have vampires, and other survivors that will do anything to survive, even turn on each other. It added a little extra to the zombie book.
One problem I had with the story was the characters. There weren't that many I actually liked!! Now I know that in a situation like they are thrown into, you have to become hard to survive but I just found all of them to be unlikable and with little compassion. Squirrel especially comes across like this though we do see a little development throughout the story, which was great. I hope she develops further as the series progresses. I did love the vamps though!! They were so witty and added much needed levity to the story.
In all this is a good post apocalyptic book. It's well written and entertaining and I love what we find out about the outbreak near the end!! It's a series that can only get better so I will definitely be checking out the next one in the series.
I really enjoyed the narration. Piper Lewis did a great job with the characters and giving them their own personalities. She has a pleasant voice and was easy to listen to, She also gave the right amount of atmosphere when needed!
