Publisher's Summary

Life for Kansas was perfect until the day the world changed. She has been hiding out for four years in solitude. It's the only way to survive. The only way not to draw the living dead. Helping a small group of people, she learns the new world might not be what she assumes. Venturing out of her refuge and comfort zone, she meets Rudy, who helps her find a greater purpose. She realizes that the world has moved on without her. Only it's not what she expects. Her knowledge of the living dead grows and only makes her more curious as humanity continues to hang on by a thread. While on her search for answers she finds comfort in new friendships and love, but her past seems as if it will haunt her forever. Kansas takes it upon herself to help other survivors, which would be easy if the famished were the only obstacles. In a trilogy plot thick with twists and turns, it is emotional as much as it is horrifyingly gripping.

Hardly a Zombie Story

Terrible! This is pretty low level writing. You can actually determine who is a decent person and who is not solely on their physical description. All decent men are describe in several pages of details with a reminder that the main character wants to jump their bones. All bad men are described as unattractive with a reminder that she doesn't want to bone them.

I forced myself to finish this and I really mean forced. There were several times that the story was so terrible that I just couldn't do it anymore and tore my head phones off. I even chose that terrible house music they play at the gym over this story a couple times. my commitment to find is finishing was not rewarded.

GREAT BOOK - Bad Narration

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I loved this book when I read it, and I was so excited to see it as an audio book. I have listened to a ton of audio books, and this, by far, is one of the worst narrations I have ever heard. I feel like she is extremely rushed and it has been hard to follow. I would not recommend the audiobook, but I would absolutely recommend the actual book. I think Annie Walls did a fantastic job on this and the 2nd book. I am extremely bummed that this audio version was so bad...
