Publisher's Summary

Earth is bombarded by a meteorite storm large enough to envelope the globe. Cities are devastated, satellites are knocked from the sky, and fires rage unchecked all over the world. In the midst of this apocalypse, a small country town, an Antarctic research station, and a group of stranded airline passengers struggle to survive, even as a new horror rises from the ashes…Welcome to Serial Fiction - with Zombies!
The Zombie Chapters is a new series, and a fresh take on the zombie genre. Its focus is on deep character development and the exploration of truly unique settings and situations. Read along as the serial's main characters attempt to understand, and cope with, the sudden shattering of their world, and a deadly virus that turns mankind against itself by animating the corpses of the fallen!
In Volume I, we meet four of the main characters as they fight to survive an otherworldly meteorite shower. Brad Thomas, a business development consultant, is in a commercial airliner when he first notices the green-tailed meteorites outside of his window. The next twenty minutes of his life are filled with unmitigated horror as he and his fellow passengers wait helplessly for the impact that will kill them all.
Ramsey Claybourne, a military-trained virologist, tries to prepare a small country hospital for the worst, until the hospital itself is struck. Handicapped ten year old Emmy, and her huge, mentally-challenged brother Carter, stare in wonder at the beautiful display in the sky above them. When the "magical" meteorites turn deadly, however, Emmy must rely on her brother's mobility, and might, to save her. Piotr Sayan and his girlfriend Maria, a brilliant Russian meteorite expert, are just starting their day when Mirnyy Station, Russia's largest Antarctic base, is rocked by the devastation of the meteorite bombardment…

Unsatisfying start to long series

The author Fite comes right out and states he is writing an old school serial. He says that he is looking to capture something along the lines of Game of Thrones in how it pulls you from one story to another as the plot progresses.

The writing is good enough here and the introductions to many characters are interesting enough to make me want to come back for more. But being the miser I am, I don't want to spend a $5-$9 for a few chapters. I know that price is going to be a sticking point for me.

I'm rating what might be a good story kind of low. Why? Because I have nothing to go off of other than a few opening salvos. People see green meteors falling from the sky. The End. Maybe this series is good, maybe its bad. All I know is I bought the first book, listened to it, and was left wanting more on many levels.

A Good Start, but where are the Zombies???

What made the experience of listening to The Zombie Chapters, Volume I the most enjoyable?

The writing and the performance.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Zombie Chapters, Volume I?

The little girl in the wheel chair. Very touching part of the story. Makes you hope she'll be ok in book II.

Have you listened to any of Ethan Sawyer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

Even though the walking dead have not came into the picture yet, this is real good story telling. The author's note in the beginning states that this is a series. Since there are only 3 books, I hope the last book have some type of resolution or a forth, fifth, sixth, etc... book.
