I've been at several writing sessions to hear the author talk about writing and publishing without actually reading his work. I gave it a try. As a result, I am now better informed about what people are willing to pay for and how the author makes his living.
The author himself is a nice guy. He comes to all kinds of writing events to not only promote his books and his company, but also freely share what he knows about writing and publishing. After giving this book a try, I think that coach role is a good place for him to stay.
Maybe if I hadn't already read a couple dozen "average guy gets to become GI Joe" wish fulfillment stories, this book would have been fresher. I have read them though. The protagonist gets to be in an elite soldier unit. He gets the hot girl without really trying. I'm sure if I had finished, he might have even saved the day. I'll never know. The story bored me in a way I could swear I had heard before.
He also calls the zombie-ish bad guys, "walkers". I mean, come on.

Where does The Dying of the Light: End rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Kristopher’s writing is engaging, and he fills this story with a number of compelling, interesting characters. I found it enjoyable, a perfect combination of suspense, drama, emotion, action, and..zombies! The storyline and characters makes for some great entertainment.
Narration by Ciulla really made this even more enjoyable. His diction and pacing is superb, and he brought dimension and believability to each character. It's amazing how the right narration can really complement a great story, adding to the experience.
Have you listened to any of Chris Andrew Ciulla’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Ciulla is definitely one of my favorites, and his performance was excellent as always. I especially loved his work in this story because of the wide range of characters he portrayed. Each character was brought to life thanks to Ciulla.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, but I never do. I prefer to listen during my work hours, when I spend 8 hours in front of a computer.
Any additional comments?
A great story by Kristopher, improved with the storytelling by Cillua. Fantastic experience.
