I would like to thank everyone who was disappointed that this was not really a zombie story. I was not going to buy it until I read the reviews. Your disappointment gave me the encouragement I needed to take a chance on it. It was a great listen. I love the author's October Daye stories and this was just as good. She is a hard hitting story teller, and the idealism is a nice change not usually found in a distopian worlds. I don't want to provide any spoilers, but I will say none of my predictions for the conclusion was correct.
As for the reader's slight lisp, it helped make the characters more real for me.
I look forward to the next book, though I know I will have to steel myself to listen to it because of the emotional intensity.

I only listened because of the Hugo nomination. I, for one, resent our new zombie overlords. But this really wasn't a zombie book, more of a "humans can adapt to anything, and still be bastards" kind of book. Fun to read, thought-provoking, and, to my surprise, with an emotional punch that had me mourning at one point in the book, really grieving for a character. Impressive.

Would you try another book written by Mira Grant or narrated by Paula Christensen and Jesse Bernstein ?
No. Actors really should be able to perform a passable accent - their English accents were some way south of say, Dick van Dyke's performance in Mary Poppins and detracted hugely from the story in Mahir's chapters. They did provide some laughs though!
What did you like best about this story?
The writing, which takes a typical zombie-era scenario and presents it in an original way.
Would you be willing to try another one of Paula Christensen and Jesse Bernstein ’s performances?
