Bob @ Platypire Reviews

The plot was decent (I love zombies) in this book, the rotters disgusting, as they should be. The back and forth between past and present were pretty cool, once you got used to them. It was the writing style that really got me, though it did break up the flow of the story a bit. The way the dialogue was laid out, mostly. It may not bother others, it may be a completely personal thing, but it really took me out of the story and I was unable to get into the book or connect with any characters. And I really wanted to! I even put it aside for a while, thinking maybe it was just the mood I was in, but when I restarted it, it didn't really change for me and I ended up forcing myself to finish it.

I also was unable to get into the narrator. There was nothing I can specifically name about him that I didn’t enjoy, he simply wasn't my cup of tea. It could also be because I wasn't able to connect with the story that I feel this way, though. Perhaps with another story, written in a style more my speed, I'd like him better?

I AM interested in finding out what happens down the road with this tale, though, and I don't want this review to deter anyone who is intrigued! Please remember that this is just my personal and honest opinion. I hate, hate, hate having to leave low ratings, but I try to be as honest possible.

Overall, I give this 2.5 Platypires

Killing Zombies in costume... stylish!

The Horror Squad is a short serialized book about a group of people trying to survive the zombie apocalypse. It's read in the first person and seems to be an auto-biography because the main character has the same name as the author. Hmmm,,,,,

Because of the genre, there has to be an obligatory comparison to The Walking Dead. There are a lot of similarities to TWD, and I can almost envision this group being in the same timespace as Rick's group and meeting up at some point. What was missing was any sort of conflict in the story. Sure there were zombies, but they were always dispatched with ease by the group. Besides an attempt at sexual assault, nothing bad happened to any of the characters. They seemed too.... safe, if that makes any sense. Granted this changes towards the end of the book. And even this was a sudden, jarring, screech to the finish, accumulating in a cliff-hanger ending. Is there a sequel? I see nothing on the Audible page that this book is part of a series, but the cliffhanger ending would imply a series.

In contrast with other reviews, I believe Mr. Salzman did a great job narrating and his voice suited many of the characters One one hand he has this natural Michigan accent, but can do southern "good 'ole boy" accents perfectly. Kudos to your talent sir! One minor nitpick is the narrator's choice of narrating the "...he said..." and "...she replied..." sections of text after a character speaks. The delivery seems very mechanical and monotone, almost pre-recorded, and there were times it was distracting. If Mr. Salzman could make these transitions out of the character speaking more organic in future performances, he would be a 5-star narrator.

This audio book was gifted to me by the narrator at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.
