Yea though we perish, yea though we die, we'll all be together in the sweet by and by...
Fifteen-year-old Ricky Genero is writing a journal of the zombie apocalypse. His high school has burned to the ground, his friends are all either dead or shambling corpses roaming the earth in search of human flesh, and his best friend died saving his six-year-old brother Chuck from a zombie horde. When Chuck is bitten and infected with the zombie virus, Ricky must travel among the walking dead in search of a cure.
WARNING: This YOUNG ADULT novel is mean and nasty and intended for a mature audience. It is absolutely not appropriate for younger readers. All Together Now: A Zombie Story is a gruesome, repugnant tale featuring horrific acts of violence sure to warp young minds.
"All Together Now: A Zombie Story is by turns disgusting, terrifying, funny, and heartbreaking. Fans of The Walking Dead will eat it up like, well, zombies munching fresh brains. A stellar debut from a novelist to watch!" (Mike Mullin, award-winning author of Ashfall, Ashen Winter, and Sunrise)

A Unique Premise, Well Told!
I've only been exposed to the audio versions of Kent's books, so I can't give a fair comparison. However, I think they are perfect for listening to in a long car ride with friends or your children, or even in the living room with the lights down low.
I don't want to give away anything specific, but I will say that the relationship between Ricky and his little brother was extremely touching, and made the events that befall Ricky and his motley band all the more tragic.
Easily Ricky, the protagonist. Ricky is capable, but unassuming, a lover of poetry and baseball, overall your average and likable kid. David portrays him with a sensitivity and angst that makes it all too easy to imagine a 16 year old Ricky, perhaps even a 16 year old David Radtke.
Yes. If my schedule had allowed it, haha! This is definitely one you'll be happy to lend a lazy afternoon to. Just don't listen to it before bed!
Having listened to a few of David's other narrations, I can honestly say this is some of his best work. He plays children, teenagers, girls, men and women of various ages and races, obese southern belles and demented religious cult leaders. There's even a few times when he sings A Capella in lieu of a church chorus ( no easy feat, I might add! One that would make most of us die of embarrassment!) All of David's characters are believable (or pleasantly exaggerated.) And he navigates them with consistency and flexibility. I look forward to listening to more works by both Robert and David.

Good story, problems with narrator
