Publisher's Summary

When the world ended some people believed that it was the fault of a failed space probe, others - an act of vengeance from an angry God. No one knew the reasons why but across the globe, millions of the recently deceased rose from the dead, possessed with one singular goal: To eat the flesh of the living. Over the course of a few short hours the world was lost.
In the Northern California town of Red Bluff, a Sheriff struggles to grasp this strange and hellish turn of events that have ravaged his small town and maintain order as it all falls apart.
Two brothers struggle to make sense of this new world, traveling through the putrid remains of their beloved town - torn between survival and the love their mother. The world has ended and soon they will learn that all they need to survive is each other.

Not bad, but not great either.

This book is hard to review because while there are parts I liked, there were even more that I felt completely "Meh" about. I'm not too sure what to say because I felt like there was a lot left to be desired with the plot and it was, for the most part, completely forgettable. I have no idea how the Zombies came to be, I can't tell you who or how many characters there were and I couldn't care less what happened to them.... but I also kinda enjoyed it, which is weird!

I liked the brothers the most and actually became invested in their story. I was rooting for them the whole way through and when it ended the way it ended, well lets just say that if it was a proper book, I would have flung it across the room!!! Those poor boys. They were the shining beacon in the book!!

Anyway, overall, I'm still torn about how I truly felt about this. I suppose OK is all I can say. It brought nothing new to the table and was a little slow at times, but I'm still glad I listened to it.

This is my first time listening to Rick Gregory and I have to say that he did good! He has a clear voice and read the essence of the story really well. He understood where inflection was important and brought the story alive. I think the only negative thing I can say is that he didn't differentiate the characters enough to clearly tell who was talking, but that is something that comes with experience!! Looking forward to listening to this narrator again.

I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

The cover says it all

What made the experience of listening to Summer of 68 the most enjoyable?

I enjoy this narrator's work, listen to most of his stuff. He does a good job--never makes it about him, just tells the story.


What other book might you compare Summer of 68 to and why?

Very much in the same vein as the popular zombie stuff of today


What about Rick Gregory’s performance did you like?

He's good to listen to, pleasant sounding narrator.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The first scene was a great hook.
