Publisher's Summary

A series of terrible things begin to happen when a scientist with a dark past resumes his genetic experiments in a small Maine town. The animals suddenly become aggressive for no apparent reason, attacking anyone within sight, including Rick's wife. After slaughtering his diseased herd, Rick realizes to his horror that they have come back to life. Soon the farm is under siege by the deranged animals, and a small group of refugees who have assembled in the farmhouse must hunker down and defend themselves against the terrible onslaught of cannibals.
The entire town soon becomes filled with the human flesh-eaters, threatening the farmhouse and the survivors within it. But they all have the same message before they reawaken: They are seeking the chosen ones. The onset of winter provides a temporary defense against the army of the dead, but with supplies running low, the survivors realize they must formulate a plan before the arrival of spring and the dreaded melt-off. And as the world outside them descends into total madness, a surprising leader emerges from the group who will hopefully lead them to safety.


Audible Editor Reviews

Dan Lawson gives a thrilling performance of Joseph Souza’s The Reawakening, the first book in the Living Dead Trilogy. His clear voice creates an atmosphere of disquiet for this apocalyptic audiobook. In a small town in Maine, a scientist conducts shady genetic experiments, resulting in aggressive animals that reanimate after death. Soon, the town is filled with creatures hungry for human flesh. The undead are also searching for "the chosen ones". A group of survivors hide in a farmhouse, but their supplies begin to dwindle. Will they be able to reach safety before winter ends?

Cannot finish due to poor performance

Narration is so bad I did not finish the story. The narration is equal to listening to my boring monotone history teacher trying to read a story. WANT MY CREDIT BACK! :(

Story seemed okay but cannot tell!

Ambition Ahead of Ability

What would have made The Reawakening better?

Editing. The writing was very juvenile.

What could Joseph Souza have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Hired a better editor.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I liked the narrator. Good voice. Dark. It was hard to listen to because the writing was all over the place.

What character would you cut from The Reawakening?

I wouldn't cut him but I'd change the Uncle. He was a walking talking cliche.

Any additional comments?

I'm a sucker for Zombie books. I simply can't get enough of them. This one had some lofty ideas that weren't fully realized. It was really amateur and badly written.
