Eric Riordan doesn't look for trouble, but trouble has a way of finding him. Two years have passed since the Outbreak, and after joining forces with his friend Gabriel, he has managed to stay alive by fleeing to the peaks of the Appalachian Mountains.
With supplies running low, and enemies gathering, the two survivors are forced to begin their journey west to Colorado. Along the way they will find unexpected allies, reunite with old friends, and make deadly new enemies. As difficult as life has been, the most dangerous times lie ahead. Nothing is ever easy at the end of the world.

Brilliant story and narration

For the last 10 months I have been listen to the Survivalist Series on Graphic Audio and had got quite used to having a cast and sound effects. So when I first start listening to the Surviving the Dead series it took a little while to adjust to one story narrator.

I am really into this series it is rare that I will fill any time but dead time ( driving etc) listening to audio books but after getting a little way into this series I find myself finding time to listen, was up till 2am the other night!

I don't really have any dislikes, the story pace and content suites me fine and one of the things I am really enjoying is the way it flicks viewpoint from Gabe to Eric, 'The diary of Gabriel Garret' neat!

If you like this series then I would recommend the A. American series starting with Going Home also good listening!

The Thing About Zombies and Physics

Would you consider the audio edition of This Shattered Land to be better than the print version?

Yes, the narrator does a splendid job. The story flows well enough that the listener stays engaged.

What does Guy Williams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

There is a general problem with most zombie, walking dead, infected or whatever, stories. The laws of physics are such that the energy expended by the creatures has to come from somewhere. If it is from what they can catch and eat, then when their hunting stops showing results, they will weaken and be unable to hunt. They will run out of energy unless they can consume whatever mass their bodies retain to provide energy for movement. Even so, they are on the wrong side of the energy curve. Factor in the ravages from maggots/flies, they will run out of juice and cease to be able to move. There is no way that zombies are not on their own doomsday clock. This rarely comes up in this genre and does not in this series. Other than that, this is a great series.
