This is the first John L Campbell story I have heard and I was pleasantly surprised. It really is yet another very good title to add to the zombie genre.
The narration was pretty good, not RC Bray quality but still very good. The narration was slower than I liked and was easily sped up to 1.5x speed without any problems at all. This does shorten the length of the story somewhat but it is still excellent value per hour, if that makes a difference (I know it does for me on a limited budget)
The story starts off with a lot of separate accounts of survivors but towards the very end, it speeds up as the separate subplots and groups come together. I get the sense this is going to be a long series because this first book has only very briefly tackled the idea of 'why the end started'. I am going to purchase the next in the series and can only hope it is just as good as this one!
If you are interested in this type of title may I also suggest the following:
Adrians Undead Diary (series)
Z-Burbia (series) has a lot more violence and naughty language
Mountain Man (series)

I purchased this book because there were some great reviews, but I don't understand why there were great reviews. I've listened to A LOT of zombie stories and this was even worse than Tofu's long-series to nowhere. The author is clearly setting this up to be a larger story about God, which the title gives away. The religious set-up is very obvious, and sadly looks to be heading in the good christian that seems bad vs bad christian that seems good. I bet book two will look a lot like the two eternal good v. evil brothers in Lost. I won't be reading book two to find out. The story is fast paced, which is good. The characters aren't around long enough to connect with, and then the book ends where a chapter should end, not a story. This guy is clearly looking to cash in on the zombie series interest.
