This is the third book in the series. An EMP wipes out modern technology, and also zaps the higher brain functions of a certain percentage of humanity. The "changed" are not zombies. Most of the higher brain functions are gone, but they are more dangerous than you might think, because they retain the ability to think, plan, work together, and use simple tools. Up to a point, they can even use weapons. Fortunately, they can feel pain, they retain the instinct of self-preservation, unlike the traditional zombie, and they are susceptible to injury and death.
Katherine Kellgren is one of the best narrators I have ever listened too. She has a clear, pleasant voice, and an expressive style that carries you right into the story with her. I hope she will read more books like this.

Would you listen to Monsters again? Why?
yes, i have read all three in this series and there was no point that i became uninterested......the characters are really good
What was one of the most memorable moments of Monsters?
hard to choose as the whole book had me hooked again......as did the other two books. although in this book i have to admit....a tear or two were shed by me
Which scene did you most enjoy?
mostly the final battle but also the gathering of them all...coming back together. these books had you waiting for this and many times i thought...ah, this is it....but it wasnt...which just added to the suspense. i must say, i am so impressed by katherines reading of all three books. never have i come across such an eager, enthrauling, enthusiastic reader. she is amazing and exciting....she perfected this story.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
yes, near the end when goodbyes were being said.
Any additional comments?
amazing writer, fabulous narrator and i am hoping, theres a follow up to this book.
Would you consider the audio edition of Monsters to be better than the print version?
Much better than the written word! The narrator does brilliantly and brings it all to life (death)?
What other book might you compare Monsters to, and why?
This is the first of this type I have read (The trilogy). It brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "Body parts"! Not bedtime reading for some.
What about Katherine Kellgren’s performance did you like?
Wow what an adrenalin rush again & again... It's the way she tell's 'em!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I would of loved the time to listen from start to finish.
Any additional comments?
I think I will recover soon but first I will check the colour of the moon.
