Editorial 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?

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.

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!

A new plot line at last!

When you have read as many zombie appocalypse stories as I have, it becomes more and more difficult to find a new plot line. The zombies generally wipe out a vast percentage of earth's population, then fade into the backgroun more or less. Some military outfit, religious nutcase, or psychopathic dictator, and their band of "good ol' boys" start looting, raping, etc. The good guys have to spend more time fighting other survivors than defending against the zombies. Here, we have the animals getting involved, which I have not seen before. There are some nasty survivors of course, but most of the time, the good guys are dealing with zombies, which is a refreshing change from the usual plot lines.

The only thing that kept me from giving this book a 5 * rating was the narrator. Unfortunately, Mr. Lawson's narrative style would workd much better for nonfiction than for a novel like this. Still, I would recommend this book to any zombie fans who are looking for something new.
