Publisher's Summary

Several months have passed since the dead began to walk. The first winter has taken its toll in more ways than one as humanity continues to struggle to survive. Not every threat to humanity comes form the undead as so many have discovered man's ability to sink into depravity with the absence of law and order. Time and again survivors have fought, run, and regrouped. Yet, there seems to be no respite, and as winter draws on...things become more and more difficult to endure. A new threat seems to materialize even before the last can be dealt with. And if the physical toll was not enough, the hours of isolation and the time left with one's thoughts can become just as destructive. How much more can you take?

    "A few dark points but lots of high points"
    Would you listen to DEAD again? Why?

    Yes of course they are great zombie books!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of DEAD?

    There is one very low point where Mr Brown does it again killing of a fav character! But finally he gave us a book with more good bits than bad!


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Taking the princess back to her home and Kevin watching and waiting until correct time to leave!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    A certain death disappointed me but this is 'dead' get used to it, i liked ending of 1 pharaoh and another baddie hanging around :) you will understand when you listen/read.


    Any additional comments?

    I found the last book a little hard to follow but maybe i was on overload.
    The major groups were easier to follow in this book as there are a few less of them so we had more quality time with each of them, they are all getting a bit smarter and wiser so finally get better chance of survival, they getting as treacherous as the bad guys but at least hold moral ground when using tricky ploys to keep them alive.
    Yes we lost a major character in this book but for once the reader got just a bit more good news than bad :) not like Mr Brown though what he gives in one hand.......... Worried about the next book but can't wait to get into the story again! Brilliant Book! Thank you

    "Very dissapointed"
    If you’ve listened to books by TW Brown before, how does this one compare?

    Having listened to the previous 5 books in the series I was a big fan of these books. Not ground breaking but entertaining enough. However, the author has added additions to the back story of the lead character Kevin. If he had been to survivalist camps then it really would have come up before. A lazy device and feels as though the author is getting bored. There have been hints of sexism in previous books, but it comes through strongly in this one. And, if you're going to quote anything, especially a classic Zombie film (Sean of the Dead) it's unforgivable to get the quote wrong - it's 'Dogs can't look up'.Really dissaopinted with this book - in fact I stopped listening it grated on me so much

    "Excellent series!"
    Would you listen to DEAD again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen to the series again, but instead I've gotten the Kindle version and am now reading the whole series again. The author is an excellent story teller!


    What did you like best about this story?

    At first I wasn't sure if I'd like the approach of different stories for the same catastrophe that hit the whole world, especially the vignettes. As I started listening to the first book and really got into the story I got used to the different story lines, and the many different characters. It is a very addicting series.


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

    I wish I knew how he did it, but he gives each character life, and even while I'm re-reading the series, I try to do the same thing, have each of the characters come out exactly like he protrays them. He is an excellent narrator, and has become one of my favorites.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    In these books you get used to each of the characters and you feel a certain way about each one. Like when something bad happens to Steven's group, you really feel the pain and sadness that the group feels when they loose one of their own. And I feel the same when something happens to Kevin and his band of survivors.


    Any additional comments?

    Remember, the Dead series is a zombie apocalypse story, but it's a bunch of different story lines that continue in each of the books. Sometimes some of the vignettes stories either end, or they continue on and you start to feel for the characters in those mini stories. The author doesn't candy coat anything and there is as much despair as there is happiness in these stories. I really can't see how the author keeps them all straight in his head.

    "Good read. Not my Favorite of the series Though"

    Excellent Series, but not the best book so far. A lot of plot twist, but almost a little too many in my opinion. Messed up or killed off some of my favorite characters. I guess it is a zombie series after all, and things can't be all sunshine and rainbows. I'm still hooked and can't wait to start the next book.

    "Big disappointment."

    I been listening to this story for the past week. This book killed it for mean though. You spent so much time building up characters and in a very short randomly removed them. People that you would think would be grief stricken from lose appeared not to be effected when storylines continued...

    I'm glad you gave one character a relatively happy conclusion over what's might have been done in a gloomy world.

    Been a decent story but it's become rather direction less with the big decision to remove the pivotal person of so many people's lives.

    "Brown does another fantastic job"
    Any additional comments?

    Zombie authors would be smart to read books by Brown.

    He was originally one of my inspirations to write my own series. I could never match his level of brutality (and I wouldn't begin to try).

    Again, his writing is superb, and his descriptions are never old and reused.

    The loss of one of his main characters was both shocking and...well, it sucked. That is probably a good thing because if I'm mourning the loss, it means Brown made me care about the character.

    Well done!

    "The Zombie Apocalype doesn't discriminate"
    If you could sum up DEAD in three words, what would they be?

    Good, Bad, Ugly


    What did you like best about this story?

    What happens to Valerie.


    What about Andrew McFerrin’s performance did you like?

    How does this guy make all those damn voices and how does he keep track of who has what voice? Its unreal.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There is but I won't say because I hate spoilers and those you write them.


    Any additional comments?

    An author has done his job when he makes you feel some type of way when a character is killed off. Yup, bad things happen to good people in the zombie apocalypse.

    Story
    "Not as good as the first five!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the first five in this series to a friend if they are the type of person who likes post apocalyptic novels but the sixth book in this series I would not recommend.


    Has DEAD turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scenes were the ones with Juan and the scenes with Chad. These were characters who overcame their past to make the right calls. These are characters the reader wants to see succeed. Much better than having to slog through Kevin's constant flashbacks of guilt.


    Do you think DEAD needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Hopefully the follow up books will get back on track with what made the first five good reads.


    Any additional comments?

    The first five books in this series were great entertainment, in some places they were eloquent but in the sixth book, Confrontation, the story gets bogged down with Kevin's guilt over his sister and Valerie. The flashbacks were annoying. Steven's guilt over his past indecision concerning Emily and the result of his actions made no logical sense and weaken a character that we had started to feel was heroic. His constant state of "imposter syndrome" gets tiring after awhile. What happens to Steven, the only first person narrative of the story, is kind of baffling as well. One finds oneself wishing it had been the fate of the constantly guilt ridden nerd Kevin instead. I'm baffled by the author's decision to take the story in this direction. Hoping the story is better in book 7.

    Story
    "Not what I've come to expect"
    What would have made DEAD better?

    To make this story better, I would've concentrated on the story at hand...too much going back to the beginning of the event caused me to tire and in some cases fall asleep.


    Would you ever listen to anything by TW Brown again?

    I will continue to listen to the series; however, if the next book starts out about with Kevin and the days leading up to the event, I may have to give it up.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narrator was outstanding.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The redeeming qualities of the book was the end when TW Brown again had me waiting in anticipation on what will happen next...
