I thought this series was really well written, it took on a number of different perspectives and followed a number of groups, which I really liked however after much feedback TW cut down on this which I thought was disappointing, he also re-wrote the first few books following just one group each, these are 'Dead perspectives', 'Dead Vignettes' and 'Dead Geeks' I believe, so if you find lots of groups difficult to keep up with you might prefer these. He decided to keep it to 12 books which is a shame as it felt like there was a lot more these storylines could have given us. TW doesn’t shy away from the horror of what could happen and there is a lot of differences between the groups (which is why I'm unsure what others found so difficult about it, if they were all very similar it would have been confusing and boring but they are very very varied which I loved) but he doesn’t go too far into realms you don’t want to wander into (like the Zombie Fallout series by Tufo). I liked that it followed zombies on occasion too as well as groups of survivors and he wasn't afraid to kill people off when their time was done. FYI typical bad British accents, so nothing new!
I'm enjoying the children storyline, different and original.
I like the spinoffs too, the 'Dead snapshots' are great, I like the attention to detail (the English one was pretty much on point re: lingo and culture) and I'm enjoying the new Dead series.
I feel like there is so much more so though this one ended on an up note I look forward to learning more about the child zombies. especially Emily zombie.

What made the experience of listening to Dead: Spring the most enjoyable?
It's always a mash up of the story line and the reader. Andrew's perfect for this book.
Have you listened to any of Andrew McFerrin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, he's awesome and I just love his style of reading.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There were several and they moved me to have to stop the book so that I could collect myself before I could turn it back on lol
Any additional comments?
I'm so addicted to this series.
