this must be the most sexist egotistical and poorly written story I have ever read/listened to. They even managed to find a narrator that matches the this man's man character. You can have a male protagonist and a post apocalyptic story without hating anyone that isn't a straight white man... you don't even need to have strong female characters to do this (although they can exist). seriously wish I had skipped this and just re listened to zombie fallout.

Enjoyed it but could have been better

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator.
The constant long lingering drawn out sounding of the last word in every sentence can be annoying...

What did you like best about this story?

I loved that although it is very subtle this must have been originally a fan fic story. the dark hair blue tall heroine could be more obvious with a young gentle hazel bard :)

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Nicol Zanzarella?

Tavia Gilbert without a second thought

If this book were a film would you go see it?

yup but doubtful

Sad to have the series end :(

Where does Up from the Grave rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

As a series I have to say it is one of my all time favorites and is very easy to listen to it over and over. From the series it's one of my favorites but have moments that were all very predictable.

What other book might you compare Up from the Grave to, and why?

This is more of a series question and I would have to say the only books I have red that are similar is the Yellow-rock Series and the Nice Girls series.

What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

I think she really does desperation very well. When Kat is in a battle and struggling or upset, Gilbert manages convey that all very well.

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

Because all the big drama scenes I predicted the hidden twists long before they happen. So I would have to pick when Marie Laveau told Kat not to cry.
