What disappointed you about Rise?
Even if anyways was a word (it is not anyway is the correct form). Using it 50 times in a chapter gets annoying even when correct. "They slept poorly anyways". What is wrong with they slept poorly. I know I am being grammar psychotic, but once I keyed in I wanted to kill the editor and finally had to give up on the book.
Would you recommend Rise to your friends? Why or why not?
The reader was awesome.
Which character – as performed by Jeff Woodman – was your favorite?
N/A only one character as it is in a journal format.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
I am a zombie junkie. This author is no Mark Tufo or Manel Loureino.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
I would have preferred the story to be told from the viewpoint of several characters - or not in diary format. I felt like a lot of detail was lacking.
What could Gareth Wood have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Character development would have made a big difference. Not only did I feel completely disconnected from the secondary characters, I couldn't muster any real emotions for the narrator, either. There was lots of action... but I found I didn't really care about the outcome. Looking back, the narrator seemed a bit emotionally vacuous himself - connections with his parents and cat were dismissed in about two sentences combined.
Was Rise worth the listening time?
I guess. It's probably NOT worth the credit, though - and I doubt I would have made it through the printed version (too tedious).
