Really enjoyed this book. Non stop action! Characters are well developed, dialog is good, narrator is good, and story is Zombified! Must read for all Zombie lovers.
The main character sets out to vent his grief on Zombies for the death of his family only to meet a one of his neighbors who has also survived. She is petrified of the walking dead and wants to escape far away from the hordes of living dead.
This book will keep you on the edge of your seat. You will not want to stop listening!!!

my neighbors are zombies! can i? do i kill 'em?
Any additional comments?
as jeff makes it back home from a night time trip scouting for food, he notices his door is unlocked. when he opens it, he discovers his worst nightmare- his neighbor eating his wife, but that's not his worst discovery.
the author does a good job portraying jeff's reaction and subsequent range of emotions. he also does a good job with the dialogue b/ween the characters- nothing is forced and it's believable.
this is an action packed zombie story. the action starts the 1st minute of the story. jeff is an everyday man. he's not a survivalist with a bunker full of guns so he has to use his brain to outwit the zombies. jeff does have a gun, but you get the feeling it'll only be used in a special occasion.
as jeff tries to escape his neighborhood, he comes across another survivor, megan. she wants to get as far away as possible. in their search for a safe area to spend the night, they come across george and jeff, who have an interesting related backstory.
the author does a good job describing the power and fear of a hoard of zombies.
the narration is pretty good. the narrator does a good job narrating the different characters and voicing their emotions.
overall, an enjoyable listen, and a good addition to any zombie fan's bookshelf.
the story is short enough and exciting enough to listen to in one sitting. of course as a trilogy, the story ends in a cliffhanger. i've listened to the 2nd book, and my biggest complaint is that it's going to cost me 3 credits for a story that should probably be one book. i can understand that the author is a 1st time author and may want to make as much $ as possible to keep writing, but i think he may turn some readers and/or listeners off by splitting the story into 3 books. some people hate cliffhangers so they won't pick up book 2. book 2 also has a cliffhanger and is mostly about group dynamics, which is another reason why some readers may give up on the story there. if the author combined all 3 short books into one longer book, he'd probably have more people reading his entire story instead of losing some along the way.
just my 2 cents. LOL
