Is Zach the Messiah or just a very naughty boy?

Normally when I finish listening to a title I write the review straight away. But this time I thought I would take a couple of days and think a bit more carefully about this one. I am glad I did as I was able to actually discover the reason why I had liked it so much.

That reason is simple, it makes feel young. There is no doubt the age of the main character and his ‘girlfriends’ help this, some of the story line regarding the relationships around Zach makes it feel like every teenage boys dream.

Once again a lot of detail is left out of some of the more graphic story line... another indicator of the target market.

Ok with all of that said and with me being middle aged bloke who does read/listen a lot and not just in the zombie genre. I also have two teenage children, which enables me to really understand why some species eat their own young. I like to think I am a bit more mature than the average teenager. Despite all of this I still enjoyed this series! I don’t think I could listen to a lot of this type one after another but it is good to bring out that young teenage person hidden within.

I notice some have commented about the narrator’s lack of emotion. But I did not find it a problem; in fact it just reinforced the type of characters within the story. Once again the speed of the narration was best increased to 1.25x again this only shortened the total listening time a little. This might be important if you are like me; in that you like your credit dollars to give you a reasonable length in enjoyment factor.

I did enjoy the ending in this one and will be looking for the third in the series. However, I suspect the third will be the last time I listen to the series… unless the author does something different. But for me this one deserves two thumbs up!

Teenaged boys fantasy

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Better story. It wasn't for me.

What could David Achord have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Mr. A chord wrote it for guys. I'm not a guy. It wasn't made for everyone. I love zombie genre but I imagine as a 40-something woman I'm not the target audience for most of them.

Which character – as performed by Graham Halstead – was your favorite?


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

There was a dog.

Any additional comments?

I feel like the author was channeling a teenaged boys fantasy. It really turned me off, as a non-teenaged boy. The first story was good. I'm about halfway through this one & I literally don't care what happens. I'm not going to read/listen anymore.
