Publisher's Summary

The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beat the common cold. But in doing so, we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop. The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED.
Now, 20 years after the Rising, Georgia and Shaun Mason are on the trail of the biggest story of their lives - the dark conspiracy behind the infected. The truth will out, even if it kills them.

I laughed, I cried...

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.

Surprisingly Good

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.

Great story, medicore narration, appalling accents

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?

Nope.
