Summary

A terrible plague has been loosed upon the earth. In the course of one night, mankind teeters on the brink of extinction. Fighting through gathering hordes of undead, a group of friends brave military checkpoints, armed civilians, and forced allegiances in an attempt to reach loved ones. Thwarted at every turn, they press forward. But taking roads less traveled could cost them everything.

We're on our own out here.

This Audio book includes the first two episodes of an ongoing serial. As such, further books will be required to complete the story.
Having said that, the first of the two books could be read alone as it reads like a short story covering the redistribution of the virus which will cause such worldwide devistation. Book two moves on to the first hours, the release points, chaos and reaction from authorities, and introduces the reader to those characters likely to be playing a part in the books to come.

An interesting feature of these opening chapters is that the distribution of the virus released was a deliberately devised scheme, that the Zeds were very fast moving and actively aggressive.

Early days yet but the desperate groups of survivors trying to find a safe location seem to be growing in charactdr and this is ably assisted by the narration of S.W.Salzman. His slightly gruff voice is pleasant to hear and his reading is well paced and clear.

I was given a complimentary copy of this book by the rights ho?der, via Audiobook Boom. My thanks for that. I did enjoy listening and there were certainly some novel approaches which promise to make this slightly different to other zombie apocalypse books. But was I sufficiently involved to continue with the serial? Probably not.

Amazing - from the characters to the storyline!

These books grabs you from page one. I'm glad my graduation didn't go down like this! I love the diversity of angles that we have from terrorists to survivalists to those just trying to make it - all with Zombies of course.You can really tell that the author is interested in the psychology of a broken society where we stop worrying about what to buy and survival one again trumps everything else.

Great suspense, tense, action filled story all brought to life by the incredible narration.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

👍🏻

I enjoyed this one. Great cast of characters. Nothing new or original about the story but I did enjoy it. It’s a great start to a ZA series.

The narrator did a good job overall. I had to get used to him but after awhile the narration did grow on me.

This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review.

Interesting take on the Zombie Genre

What made the experience of listening to Zed's World the most enjoyable?

The story was very well crafted. It told the story through different points of view and each view was very distinct.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Zed's World?

The Chaos at the Mobi (?)

What about S.W. Salzman’s performance did you like?

I thought that he did a good job of narrating the book. he was able to lend distinct voices to each character. His voice was a little rough and was hard to get used to at first.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

TERRORism on the Homefront!!!

Any additional comments?

I received a free copy of this audio book and have voluntarily left a review.
