I liked the characters and wasnt a bad story line, a little confusing toward the end of the book, I am still wondering about that military presence, but all in all ok

Any additional comments?
story goes by way to fast for me. they leave for a destination and two sentences later, they're there. they scope a seemingly empty military base, fight off zombies, and get supplies all in 5 minutes of listening. imho, the author rushes too much. there are a couple of interesting subplots, but they're never followed up on so i guess the author's planning a sequel.
the relationships are not believable. john's father is killed, and he doesn't even give it a second thought. i think it's mentioned one more time in passing. his father's death doesn't affect him in the slightest. in fact, it seems like death doesn't affect any one. characters are one dimensional. the survivors they find don't have any backstories. they're just zombie fodder.
they must be the luckiest survivors ever, in any zombie story. they find a full gun shop, several abandoned military bases that are stocked with food, guns, unlimited ammo, and vehicles.
there are only a few zombie battles. the zombies really never seem to pose a serious threat. there's no tension. yes, a huge hoard that can be seen as far as possible is dispatched. ok. they have tons of ammo, but they don't even tire. the guns don't malfunction. one minute, there's a huge hoard, the next they have it handled. what do they do with all the dead zombies that are piled up as high as a shipping container. the book never says.
there are so many other, better zombie stories out there than this. this is at the bottom of my list. yes, i listened to the whole thing only b/c i paid for it and hated the thought that i had wasted a credit. save yourself and save your credit.

This is fantastic, I saw online that the book had received rave reviews and I can hear why. It is full of action, heroism, terror, near misses, everything a zombie lover would want to experience. Most stories have a few sections that I have to grind through, but every paragraph in this book was gripping. The story is so intense and the narrator so expressive, I listened to the whole 8 hours in one day, then left it a couple of days and listened again. Its brilliant. I saw Todd Sprague was writing a sequel, then everything went quiet, all I can say Todd is one thing, forget the sequel, lets have a whole series. New Zed Order makes the Walking Dead saga sound like a laid back picnic !
