Publisher's Summary

The dead rise...
A mysterious incident in Russia, a blip buried in the news - it's the only warning humanity receives that civilization will soon be destroyed by a single, voracious virus that creates monsters of men.
Humanity falls...
A lawyer, still grieving over the death of his young wife, begins to write as a form of therapy. But he never expected that his anonymous blog and journal would ultimately record humanity's last days.
The end of the world has begun...
Governments scramble to stop the zombie virus, people panic, so-called Safe Havens are established, the world erupts into chaos; soon it's every man, woman, and child for themselves. Armed only with makeshift weapons and the will to live, this survivor will give mankind one last chance against...Apocalypse Z.

One of the worst books ever read/listened to

I could not finish listening to this. If a teenager had the determination to write a sci-fi/horror novel, this is what they would come up with. This book takes suspension of disbelief to a whole new level. Not only is the main premise ridiculous, but the details: transformers blow up because the electricity supply has failed, his freezer defrosts almost instantly, he listens to the police on short-wave radio, his car engine fails catastrophically because he drives along a bumpy road....it's just ridiculous. To cap it all, the narrator has a whiny American voice and I lost count of the number of times he said: 'life is a bitch'. Sorry, puerile rubbish.

Some lazy writing but very enjoyable story...

A very enjoyable story with lots of interesting elements and plenty of suspense though it has IMO an overly dramatic and at times odd narration. In terms of the writing there are lots of obvious things which could have been corrected with a decent Editor - silly stuff like "the corridor was pitch black" followed by a detailed description of the corridor, "I was paralyzed with fear" then immediately "strangely calm", "I had grown used to the hideous sights" though "bile rose in my throat and I wanted to throw up", he realizes that he needs to be quiet so as not to attract attention yet shouts with joy, fires automatic weapons and kicks steel doors multiple times with gay abandon - these things may have sounded OK with a different narrator. Because the main character apparently has the learning curve of a plank you kind of want him to die but that still didn't stop me enjoying this listen!
