What the Critics Say

"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!

Would you consider the audio edition of All Together Now: A Zombie Story to be better than the print version?

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.


What was one of the most memorable moments of All Together Now: A Zombie Story?

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.


Which character – as performed by David Radtke – was your favorite?

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.


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

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!


Any additional comments?

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.

Pretty good

I enjoyed listening to this one but it did take a bit to get into. I think I was thrown off a bit by the narration at first, which isn't bad at all, it just didn't match the age of the main character, in my opinion. Much of the story is told through journal entries. I thought the characters were pretty interesting and the outcome is different than what I have seen with most of this genre. I would recommend.
