Awesome story!! This is a must have, you have to look past the horrible narrator and you will find an incredible story. If you are a fan of the zombie apocalypse genre, this is a fresh new spin on it. Finally an author who can envision something more than zombies bite everyone, the end. this book is fast paced and will keep you guessing, you will be begging for the next chapter at the end!!

Narration needs to be redone

What did you like best about Serum? What did you like least?

The narration and production values were simply horrible. As another reviewer mentioned, there seems to be a lot of background noise and not a very good recording. There were also huge problems with the narration. The narration cleared his throat, repeated text (Chap 6 in audible/5 in physical book at time stamp 02.31, 02:41, 03:41 and 04:42 to just list a few examples), mispronounced words and at times seems to be talking to someone else (again Chap 6 time stamp 01:41 sounds like he says to someone, "it says here" then reads line from book).

Would you be willing to try another book from Christopher McDonald? Why or why not?

I would but it would need to be very inexpensive.

Would you be willing to try another one of Robert Lee Wilson’s performances?

No. I would not listen to this narrator again.

Was Serum worth the listening time?

No it was not worth the listening time. Perhaps it would have been worth the time to read the book but in this case, the narrator made it impossible to follow the story because his narration issues were so distracting.

Any additional comments?

I received a free copy of the audiobook in exchange for a fair review. I am sorry to have to rate the book so poorly because I know the author put his heart into writing it. I suggest the author try to find a different narrator for any future projects and consider redoing this one. I will not buy the ebook version of "Serum" because after listening to this narrator turned me off on it.
