Loved Let the Right on it - this wasn't so great
A really great way to look at the living dead in a different way and how people cope with the loss of a loved one...loved the characters and the story behind their loss...
This is no normal 'zombie' book and therefore is not a 'horror'..more a book that deals with human emotion and dealing with loss..
The way he says GRIMACE!! It annoyed me beyong belief..more so that it should have to be fair..plus really not keen on the mixture of accents considering it was was based in another country..
Plus the inflections were wrong in a number of sections..but I am just being picky!
No - perfect for my long days behind the wheel...

I was expecting more, it didn't amount to much in the end, too much left unknown.
Yes the narrators voice was good, that's probably the only reason I was able to carry on with the story.
Pronouncing the word 'grimace' would have been helpful as its used so much in the story.
The premise of the story was good, I just didn't love any of the characters or how it ended.
This could have been acceptable as a short story, maybe
