Publisher's Summary

Four-year degree in business.Trained in hand-to-hand combat. Works well with zombies. This is the resume of the last mailman on Earth.
It is the near future, and the modern world we knew has been overrun and destroyed by reanimated corpses who hunt humans for food. Mankind has retreated to small pockets of civilization and practically surrendered to these walking dead. But one man routinely leaves behind the safety and comfort of his home in this new world in order to find the people and things we’ve long abandoned. He battles the elements. He battles his own brewing insanity. But mostly, he battles zombies. This is his story.

Audible Editor Reviews

Marc Vietor gives a thrilling performance of Kevin Burke’s novel The Last Mailman. His deep, commanding voice lends the apocalyptic text a grave tone. The world is quiet - too quiet. Zombies have destroyed civilization and hunger for human flesh. Some survivors have gone into hiding, while others attempt to brave the treacherous landscape to get help. Despite the danger, the last mailman on Earth still ventures out into the world to continue to find survivors, and to deliver messages on behalf of clients.

Zombies but not as many as expected

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes but only to newbie zombie fans. Simply because it an easy read, short enough not to take to long, amusing in some places and with just enough twists and turns to keep you interested without taking the story to deep.


What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The ending was true to the rest of the story. Brought a smile and left me thinking I could easily listen to another from this author


What about Marc Vietor’s performance did you like?

Clear, not slow like many narrators


Could you see The Last Mailman being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No, but I couldn't help but think of Kevin Costner in 'The Mailman"


Any additional comments?

Not as good as some of the zombie series books going around today but still not bad. I would happily give the author another read!

Interesting

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Kevin Burke's The Last Mailman is a typical zombie story about zombie and apocalyptic survival; in this aspect nothing sets it apart from other zombie books (well except for the Bill and super zombie scenario). His job and the psychological/emotional responses is what makes this book interesting. Nothing deep or profound, just interesting! Main male Character reminded me of a mixture of Clint Eastwood meets Bruce Campbell.

I think I would change who lives and who dies in the book. Cannot say too much about this; I do not want spoil the story for others.


Would you be willing to try another book from Kevin Burke? Why or why not?

Depends on subject


What about Marc Vietor’s performance did you like?

Yes Marc did well


Could you see The Last Mailman being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
