I loved the book, now listening to the story narrated by the author himself was an even bigger treat. It begins with Flex Sherradin talking to his sister who is not feeling well when he hears a terrible scream, he jumps ito his Suburban and heads down to Florida but he is more than four hours away and having to stop and gas up several times does nothing to alleviate the fear building inside of him. Along the way, he is so caught up in trying to get to his sister that he misses several clues as to what is happening to the world around him. Arriving, what he feared most is affirmed but in the most horrific of ways. His sister has turned into a crazed cannibal, his brother in law is dead/eaten and one of his nieces has drowned in her attempt to get away from her mother. To help in his hour of need, Gem, his soul mate, arrive. Gem herself has also survived an attack from a loved one but her one thought is to get to Flex as soon as possible. They don't know what is happening, only that they need to protect Trina, Flex's niece. They search for weapons in a police station were they find Hemp, a Britsh scientiest, who will be instrumental in their war agains the walking dead. They also find Charlie, a young woman who had taken refuge in a hospital and is by no means helpless having killed a few of the dead with a cross bow. Forming a close knit group as they make the return to Flex's home. Gem and Charlie are anything but helpless as they both fight along side Flex and Hemp. A quick stop to the CDS (possible spoilers)where they find a couple of people still alive and rescue several people that the undead are storing for food. These are unlike any Z's that have been written about which is what makes this storyline unique. If you have read the book, you will enjoy the narration by the author himself. If you have not, you will still enjoy it as new discoveries are made about the Z's and since the author is the narrator, it is personal on many levels. Who better to tell the story then the man who penned it. I look forward to re-listening to the the rest of the series now more than ever.

I would listen to Eric A Shelman read the phone book to me and I'd still be hanging on to every word. When he reads Dead Hunger : The Flex Sheridan Chronicle it's like Christmas morning. I had already read the book and love when it comes alive in my head. Mr. Shelman always finds a way to make his books stand out from the others in the same genre. There is usually one or two things he adds that are unique to his story development and this talent shines through with Dead Hunger. Whether you read or listen to Dead Hunger there is no disappointment, trust me.
