Loved this story!

This was such a great story! I seem to rarely come across zombie-related stories and after seeing the author about supplying a free copy for an honest review, I leapt for the chance to listen (audiobook).

In the end, I loved this story! It held my attention the entire time and I didn't want it to end. When it finally did, it was on a huge cliffhanger, I thought I was going to cry. lol I can't wait for book 2 in this series.

The story:

There was a part when Jenny and Maggie were talking in which Maggie acknowledged she wanted to keep her car because she had nothing left of her previous life. When Jenny questioned her about her still having her daughter, Sophie, Maggie was upset that Sophie hadn't wanted to ride with her, instead choosing the group. Jenny tells her to basically be thankful that Sophie is still alive because Matt has no clue what happened to his father. Wrong! His father was dead, it was his mother whose whereabouts were unknown.

I'm curious as to why the author chose to categorize the "creatures" differently. For example, overall they're zombies, but some are referred to as undead or those infected. That this sentence, for example, there's a time when Jenny says she sees “the dead shambling here..." but it not being as "...bad as Meadow Hills..." and how "...she saw no sign of the infected.” Aren't the dead and infected the same? They're all zombies. Some walk, some run.

The narrator:

While I liked her calm voice, I couldn't help but notice random background noises taking place throughout her reading/narrating of the story. For example, every so often when she'd pause, I assumed she was pausing her narrating program, there'd be a click kind of sound. Additionally, I was she would have done a longer pause between chapters. With how it was performed, she'd read the final sentence of Chapter 1, for example, then automatically say "Chapter 2." Maybe I'm just being too picky. I've listened to many audiobooks and there's usually a longer pause between chapters. Either way, she did pretty good with the variety of voices she supplied in the story.

Book 1

Any additional comments?

This audio book is a nice quick debut novel by author Kady Monroe featuring convenience store clerk Jenny caught in the midst of a zombie attack.
