This exciting audio drama is based on an immensely popular podcast that has received hundreds of positive reviews and has had over four million downloads - and counting.
For Army Reserve soldier Michael Cross, the world as he knows it ends in an instant. One minute he’s in college, and the next rioters are roaming the highway around him, breaking into cars and literally tearing people apart. This is the day the dead walk. This is the world of We’re Alive.
The first season features 12 chapters packing performances and sound effects that rival movies and prove that modern audio drama is undead and well. Join our survivors as they band together, struggle to fortify a safe haven known as the Tower, and discover that zombies are far from the worst thing in a post apocalyptic Los Angeles, where the rules of human decency no longer apply.
Little food. Little water. Little hope. Who is lucky enough to say "We're Alive"?
“We’re Alive is a modern rendition of an old-school medium. Maintaining a style that is both retro and contemporary, the radio drama will give horror fans the campy, kitschy style they like, but it also provides a variety of characters and development to keep general audiences engaged…Despite not being able to see the action, the excitement and intensity is still sustained through score and sound design. In some ways, the lack of visuals to accompany the audio creates more suspense. The narrator controls how much the audience knows, slowly teasing out information. Accompanying the drama are sparse moments of comedic relief…Expressing a keen awareness of the zombie subgenre, many of the jokes come from familiar scenarios and tropes of zombie stories.” (Examiner.com)

Fantastic book to listen to
Yes, Definitely. What a fantastic way to narrate a book with a full cast rather than single reader ,Brilliant, really brought the book alive especially with music and sound effects thrown in. Great story, easy to listen to. I have 150 plus audio books now and love them all but this 3 book series (so far) is easily in my top ten favourites.
I guess it is a typical Zombie apocalypse style book of which I have several but I think for me its quite like the Walking Dead TV series of which Im quite a fan
Yes I have several but for me this is a good book that really comes alive with this style of narrating. Im sure I would have still enjoyed this book if read by a single narrator but Im really pleased it isn't.
Not really but I did find myself laughing out loud on occasion, Not something I think Ive done with other books.
Loved it, Will listen to it many times Im sure. More books of all styles read this way please.
