With the world now plagued by rotters, it's up to my team and I to take care of the living and take out the dead.

"Good thing it's only 3 hours............"
I really hate that even though I was given this audiobook in exchange for an honest review, that I have to leave such a negative accounting of the book. The only reason I was able to eventually finish is because it's only 3 hours and I wanted my review to be accurate for the entire book.
First, what does the cover have to do with this book? Is this a steam punk sci-fi apocalypse? Maybe it has something to do with the later books in the series (that are not on audio.) Just ignore the cover because it has nothing to do with this book. Don't get your hopes up for some bad *ss zombie slaying women, because they're not here.
To put it bluntly, I just didn't like the author. He wrote like a teenage boy. By the pen name "TJ," I didn't know if it was male or female, but it's VERY obvious this is a male writing this. He actually said "that's gay" at one point. VERY teenage boy writing style in every aspect of this book.
There were too many flashbacks and no indication that it's a flashback. We're at a present scene one second, a flashback the next second with no pause, no mention of the new timeline, no mention of which character is speaking, etc. It just ended up being a garbled mess!
Then there's the narrator. What happened to him? I've listened to him before and he was pretty good. It's like he was told to keep this at exactly 3 hours, which made him skip most pauses between sentences, give no indication of chapter change and speak in a monotone, bored out of his mind, manner the entire book. I'm sorry Mr. Salzman, but it was really bad. Maybe you realized there was just no saving this book?
"Amazing story of the apocylpse"
The world has changed but there is one group just trying to survive. As part of the group lives in the power plant/school area and keeps it up and running, the other part has to go out frequently and scavenge for food and other supplies that might help during this apocalypse. It is during one of these trips that things go very wrong.
This was a exciting, action filled, suspenseful, story of survival. I totally enjoyed listening to S.W. Salzman narrating this book, he does such a awesome job with all the different characters and expressing their emotions in his voice, it was amazing. I can't wait for more to hear what happens to T.J. and the crew.
"Typical zombie apocalypse"
This is a fairly good book for all zombie lovers. The narration was great. My only complaint it was too short and leaves you hanging. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom. Thank you
"Did not feel it."
I can't really recommend this work. It did not grab me or move me. I found it flat.
I can't think of an interesting aspect to the story. I also can't think of anything least interesting.
No, “This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.”I don't think I would like to try any other works read by Mr. Salzman.
Keep working on plot and character development. Find a new reader.
"Zombie action at its finest"
When you must go scavenging take only the best. Great post apocalyptic zombie story. Has action drama zombies and more. All the right elements of a good story. I enjoyed and will be looking for more. I received this audiobook from the author narrator or publisher for free via audiobookboom in exchange for an unbiased review
