One of my favorite audiobooks of the year! 😀 I’ve been on a bit of a zombie kick recently, as my followers will know, if ya’ll read that post from the other day. 😀 I want to write my own zombie story, but I need to do a bit of genre research first. 😀 so here it is in the form of reading awesome, creepy, gore-filled zombie books!
I was actually listening to this late a night, right before I had to go to work. (I do a lot of uber early morning/night shifts)
Not my brightest moment. See, i walk to work. around 3 or 4 in the morning, most days. its dark and quiet. And someone else was walking on the sidewalk… and I heard them whistling before I saw them.
not going to lie.
It scared the shit out of me. Maybe I shouldn’t listen/read scary stories so late at night… but I will anyway. I love it. its so much fun to get scare. you know, after you realize it was just some random guy walking home and not a hungry zombie looking to gnaw on your brains.
I rather like my brains inside my skull where they belong, thank you very much!
Anyway! Here’s my review! 😀
Amazing! I was really impressed with this story. Average people trying to survive the beginning of a zombie apocalypse while trapped in a supermarket? 😀 sign me but please, that sounds like some creepy awesome fun! 😀
The writing was great. Strong with a distinctly masculine voice that suits our main character, Gus, very well. There is a LOT of swearing throughout the story. And a lot of graphic violence. so it’s definitely an adult book. but it works, all that swearing. average painter guys, trapped by zombies? of course they’re gonna be swearing left and life. Most adults (At least the ones I know) swear a lot anyway, so it makes sense that they’d swear left and right.
Each character is a strong individual. Gus is your average joe guy with a strong sense of loyalty to his buddies and girlfriend. And I love him. And Toby is just fucking hysterical. I laughed out loud several times while listening to this book, thanks to him. he was a great bit of comedy as we watch the shit storm start. 😀 but you gotta feel for him, when we start seeing him really breaking down towards the end.
& mel grant? “The Bitch” as she is often referred to? I love to hate her.
Zombies. baseball bats. cops overwhelmed and terrified people trying to make sense out of crazy. this was a great story. I very highly recommend it for fans of horror and zombie books.
And make sure to check out the audiobook version if you like listening to your books! 😀 the narrator really brings the story to life. I literally laughed out loud several times at Toby’s jokes. he’s the best. Also, the snotty tone used for Mel? excellent.
I got the rest of the book serious on audible, so I’m looking forward to reading/listening to the rest of the series. There’s a FREE short story called “The Hospital” I’m looking forward to reading. 😀
Happy Reading! Love, Lennie.
