Summary

This exciting audio drama is based on an immensely popular podcast that has received hundreds of positive reviews and has had over four million downloads - and counting.
For Army Reserve soldier Michael Cross, the world as he knows it ends in an instant. One minute he’s in college, and the next rioters are roaming the highway around him, breaking into cars and literally tearing people apart. This is the day the dead walk. This is the world of We’re Alive.
The first season features 12 chapters packing performances and sound effects that rival movies and prove that modern audio drama is undead and well. Join our survivors as they band together, struggle to fortify a safe haven known as the Tower, and discover that zombies are far from the worst thing in a post apocalyptic Los Angeles, where the rules of human decency no longer apply.
Little food. Little water. Little hope. Who is lucky enough to say "We're Alive"?

Critic reviews

We’re Alive is a modern rendition of an old-school medium. Maintaining a style that is both retro and contemporary, the radio drama will give horror fans the campy, kitschy style they like, but it also provides a variety of characters and development to keep general audiences engaged…Despite not being able to see the action, the excitement and intensity is still sustained through score and sound design. In some ways, the lack of visuals to accompany the audio creates more suspense. The narrator controls how much the audience knows, slowly teasing out information. Accompanying the drama are sparse moments of comedic relief…Expressing a keen awareness of the zombie subgenre, many of the jokes come from familiar scenarios and tropes of zombie stories.” (Examiner.com)

The best zombie Podcast all in one place!

I used to follow the podcast from when chapter 4 part 2 was the latest episode. I found it very frustrating having to go in to menu to go to the next chapter chronologically or having to wait for the next 1 chapter to come out which was sometimes months between.

It's very much the biggest relief to have the whole season in one place.

These books are the best simply because its not a book, It as I like to call the "Audio to a Movie". The characters feel like real people relatable people. Sound Effects are great and add to all the emotions you feel for the characters.

A must Listen too especially if you are a zombie head.

Fantastic book to listen to

Would you listen to We're Alive again? Why?

Yes, Definitely. What a fantastic way to narrate a book with a full cast rather than single reader ,Brilliant, really brought the book alive especially with music and sound effects thrown in. Great story, easy to listen to. I have 150 plus audio books now and love them all but this 3 book series (so far) is easily in my top ten favourites.

What other book might you compare We're Alive to, and why?

I guess it is a typical Zombie apocalypse style book of which I have several but I think for me its quite like the Walking Dead TV series of which Im quite a fan

Have you listened to any of Blackstone Audiobooks’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes I have several but for me this is a good book that really comes alive with this style of narrating. Im sure I would have still enjoyed this book if read by a single narrator but Im really pleased it isn't.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not really but I did find myself laughing out loud on occasion, Not something I think Ive done with other books.

Any additional comments?

Loved it, Will listen to it many times Im sure. More books of all styles read this way please.

quick summary: michael cross spent 3 tours in iraq. now, he's back in california taking classes. just as his quiz starts there's an explosion, and he goes up to see what's going on, against his professor's assertions that everything will be fine. as more and more students gather around the t.v. to see some kind of riots breaking out, michael decides to head to his base. there he runs into angel, his commander, and saul. angel won't let them open the armory until the base commander arrives and gives them the ok. but as the $h!t really starts to hit the fan, they bust in. however, the alarm attracts the infected. once they realize nobody's coming to investigate the alarm, they decide to wait out the alarm's timer and leave in a hummer. as they flee through the city, they rescue riley and pegs from the roof of a florist shop. they decide to try to rescue angel's girlfriend, who lives in a nearby apartment building. once there, they discover it almost totally abandoned, and they recognize it has good defensive qualities by the way the floor plan is laid out. so starts their story of survival.

there's a large cast of characters, but it's not hard to keep track of who's who b/c each character has his/her own dedicated voice actor. the voice acting is exceptional. there are lots of sound effects, and they are also done exceptionally well- they help to immerse you into the story.

this story has it all: the various complications surrounding surviving with a bunch of people you don't know, a great cast of antagonists (prisoners who've escaped), drama, interesting infected, gore, and lots of action.

while not a pure zombie story, i totally enjoyed listening to this series. the spectacular voice acting and the engrossing and evolving plot keeps bringing me back, week after week. what do i mean by that? this series is a free weekly podcast. each podcast is b/ween 15 and 30 minutes. the 1st 2 minutes are ads and a pickup from the last episode. i didn't want to deal with that so i downloaded the 1st 2 seasons on audible. i am now catching up with season 3, which just ended. season 3 is only available via free downloadable podcasts.

if you're into zombie / end of the world stories and are looking for something new, definitely give this a try. i warn you! it's addicting!

Great story and performance

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Great listen for zombie lovers, however, don't waste your credit. You can download (31 chapters as of this review) for free from itunes.
