A must read for fanatics of this genre!
I don't write a lot of reviews, but if it's a 4 of 5 star I feel I must. For the author, narrorator and the readers that have gone through so many of these type of novels and still want to know when a good or great one comes through.
This one is just really really good! It's not super unique for this genre, but it's is SOLID. Fantastic writing that just keeps you going and a new narrorator (for me atlst) that is just plain GREAT. A different voice for each character but not over the top. Just really really good.
If your constantly searching for the next book on this genre, have already read all the greats, this is a must! All around well done and deserves to be read and definitely heard!
PS. CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE! HURRY! =)

I'll wait next time
I'm sorry I selected this when there were so few reviews. My three stars for narration are probably a matter of taste, as I am less fond of very different voices for the characters, preferring more of a reading than a performance. A couple of the voices, including Merrick, I found caricature-ish and that alone affected my experience. The story just didn't grab me. It's lightweight for my taste. I like my apocalypse a little more dramatic. Whether most of humanity disappears, dies, becomes zombies, or whatever I would like to have something a little new and faster paced in it's aftermath, especially if the event itself isn't a real part of the narrative. I'm quitting about halfway through. Maybe it gets better but life's too short.
