For those who get bored of the constant Romero-Esq story lines this is probably the audiobook for you. The performance and narration was well done as much as the story line would allow for it (assuming read in scarey zombie voice was in their scripts). There were a multitude of zombie type plots - Haitian Zombies, Beautiful Zombies, Zombie High School drama, Zombie love stories etc. This however did not fulfill my Zombie fiction craving.
"Twisted" by Kevin Veale, the first story in the collection did offer an interesting twist without sacrificing the story. I liked the idea that Zombies hunted us via our brain waves and one could allude detection by remaining incredibly intoxicated. The forced intoxication of others made this story all the more unsettling. I'll be looking for more work by this author.

The first story is about everyone having to take massive amounts of drugs to keep the zombies from attaching you. The harder the drug the better, meth is better than pot. Tommy Lee and Ozzy Osborn are the President of the US. While the idea for the story may have sounded good in between bong hits the author was unable to pull it off. It is not that I am against drugs or I have it in for Ozzy, (Black Sabbath is my favorite band) it’s that the story was boring and made no sense.
The sad part is the stories get worst as the book goes on. At least the first story was about “zombies”. Many of the stories I do not even consider to be zombie stories. If you like stories about Zombies dating each other, how it is hard being a teenage zombie, falling in love with and having sex with a high school Zombie girl, then this may be a book for you. If it wasn’t for the hard “R” sex parts I would say this would be a good book for teens.
Even a World War Z story by Max Brookes couldn’t save this book.
The narrators read the stories in one voice. While not bad I am spoiled by the range of voices many narrators have.

I was quite pleased to see such a compendium on Audible and at a good price for 20 hours or so of listening. Especially looking forward to a good scare when out walking the dogs at night time, or driving during the darker hours - both times where I do my audio book listening.
The stories aren't bad, and they are well narrated. However the problem is that 90% of the authors seem so desperate to take an original twist on the whole zombie genre that it becomes a bit dull, and hardly ever, really, hardly ever scary. All I wanted was some proper horror stories based on the zombie genre.
I've since bought Domain of the Dead and the Walking Dead audio books - they seem much more my cup of tea.
By all means give it a crack, just don't expect any scares :(.
