I find myself asking the question. ‘Why would I review book number 11 in a series which is not yet complete?’ This series for me continues to get better! The more I get to know the characters, the more I find myself spurting my coffee out in laughter at some of the antics of the unlikely heroes! I am fast running out of clean shirts.
R.R. Haywood has done an excellent job at character development but unlike so many authors who excel at character development. R.R. Haywood has equally excelled on the development of the story line. This is not just some mindless zombie tale! It is a well thought out, well developed story which keeps me coming back for more, the perfect blend of tension and humor.
The first in the series was good but was nowhere near my top 5 zombie stories. However, it has with each new new one in the series it has sky rocketed up the list. It is now easily in my top 3, and one of those 3 is just there because it was the book that got me hooked on the zombie genre (thank you Keith C Blackmore).
The only criticism I have of this one and it is only minor, but I have to mention it, just in case some might think I was paid or biased in some way. This one has a little too much ‘boyfriend girlfriend’ type tension… it may just be me… but I don’t think in this sort of situation I would even be thinking along those lines.
Once again the Dan Morgan does an excellent job narrating multiple characters. I increased the speed to 1.25x not because it was slow but because I couldn’t get enough of the story. There is no problem at all with listening to it at 1.25x speed. This is good news for those of you who are just like me ‘so broke you don’t have two coins to rub together’, the dollar per hour listening equation is not greatly affected by narration speed. 12 hours of listening pleasure is such a surprise with so many titles in this genre now days going for 8 hours or less of late.
The FatMan totally approves of this one! Two fat thumbs raised and a massive grin is the official rating!
Opps my bad! I just noticed it isn’t Dan Morgan at all doing the narration. He has been retired from the series, it is Joe Jameson… I thought it sounded different… Regardless of who narrated it is brilliant!
