If you're a fan of The Walking Dead and ever wonder what the Governor's deal was then thus series is for you.
Set in the time same time frame as Rick's arrival to Woodbury hit told from the other perspective.
Well told and nice voice acting from the reader, Fred Burman.

been a hugh fan of The guide since Radiohead released the album OK Computer and I discovered this was a reference to something called The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy. So of I went to the local library and all the had was the BBC Radio broadcast on tape. Needless to say I was hooked.! All of that said you wouldn't have believed my excitement when audibles got it and made it the daily deal. Still as brilliant as I remember!

Dark, very very dark. Fascinating read but don't expect to many laughs or a heart warming read.

Set in a world where man had flown to the stars on the backs of gods rather then science this short delivers a very detailed world and belief system. Scalzi has a unusual mind and this wonderful tale about belief and faith showcase it!
Kind of wish this was a much longer story.

Really enjoyed this. I'm a big fan of Kirkman and have been reading The Walking Dead comics for quite some time. That said I was really excited when I discovered that a set of novels had been written about the series most loved/hated bad guy, the Governor.
The Fall of the Governor covers the events from the comics but from the perspective of the residents of Woodbury rather than Rick and his group. It was really interesting to get a peek into the thoughts of the Governor.
I'm looking forward to finding out what happens next as told from the people outside the prison!

Weird, scary and interesting. I really want to find out what's going on. Guess I'll just have to read the rest. Did I mention, it's quite scary?? I really shouldn't have been listening to it in the dark!

Nice fantasy with an interesting premise.
Moth is set in a world split distinctly into two halves. One side in constant daylight, the other eternal night. As one would expect each half of the world has individual peoples and customs and both believe the other to be nothing more than myth, like the myth that once the world spun and night followed day.
That is of course until a girl goes missing from the light side of the world and is found murdered on the night side. This sparks of a series of events which send a simple gardener from the light side and a fisherman's daughter from the dark side on a journey to prevent a war.

Interesting take on the whole zombie thing with a man made virus being released turning most of the population in the infected areas in to fast, vicious, somewhat intelligent undead.

I have to admit that I loved the Fixed trilogy so I was very excited when I found out that we get the story told from Hudson's perspective as I found I had previously had very little sympathy for him.
Not so now, now I might have a slight literary crush on Hudson!
This really is just a retelling of the tale with a few choice moments from Hudson's past thrown in. That's not much you might say but light is thrown on not only Hudson's back story but Celia as well. And I hate to admit it but I now, kind of, fell sorry for Celia and I really hate her. Also this book confirmed what I always suspected and that's the Mira is awesome. I loved her already but she's just awesome.
I also had this as an audio from Audible and the voice actor, James Patrick Nelson, was just melt your socks off HOT!!
