Publisher's Summary

One hundred years after the zombie apocalypse, those lucky enough to survive now exist in scattered cities, under the merciless rule of the City Watch. A simple tenet overshadows all aspects of daily life: obey or die. When Jonah Lovecraft is framed for murder, his status as a Watcher doesn't spare him from the ultimate punishment: being cast into the Barrens and forced to battle zombies and other criminal contestants in the Darwin Games.
As he fights for every heartbeat, his daughter, Ana, embarks on her own desperate quest to uncover the truth about her father. Yet neither expects their efforts to reveal grim secrets that could tear apart the fabric of society - if either lives long enough to expose the truth.

Interesting but felt like i've read this before

I’m really torn on how to rate this book. On one hand it’s well written, contains interesting characters with heartfelt moments along with a good amount of surprise and action! On the other hand as I was listening to it all I could think about what that it felt like a rip off of ‘The Hunger Games’ with zombies. In the end it’s entertaining which is what the zombie genre is about right?

Mr. Miller does a good job with the narration and pacing. It really helped with the enjoyment of the book,

Better than I expected

What did you love best about Z 2134?

I came across this after the author's Yesterday's Gone Series which I enjoyed however not as much as I would have liked. However, I took the plunge and purchased Z 2134 and was pleased I did so. This is the sort of book you just knew from half way through there would be more and I had the hope it would keep me interested and this book does it. I am now into book two and am glad I started.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Z 2134?

Several, I like some of the back stories, some of the characters

What about Dan John Miller’s performance did you like?

Enjoyable and easy to listen too.

Any additional comments?

I can see this as described 'Hunger Games with Zombies' but also a little Brave New World or 1984. That look of the future we all hope does not happen.

Spoilt by The Beam

I enjoyed this story but I started following the writers after listening to the Yesterday's Gone series and The Beam series which I thought were brilliant (apart from the Beam series not having been finished on audio). I'm sure that listening to them first spoilt any "wow" factor this may have had. Also, it reminded me of the Hunger Games series so lost points on originality (although I don't know which came first) but was, all in all, an enjoyable listen.
