After a long day of prepping a house for painting, all Gus Berry wanted was the night off to spend some time with his girlfriend and relax before having to return to work the next morning. But that isn’t going to happen. Because Gus’s co-worker Benny has found a one-night job at the local Mollymart East, a job that has to be done by morning. If Gus and his paint crew can complete the work by then, it could mean huge business with a respected, established grocery store chain.

This is what it's all about. This is Grade A, Top Shelf, Holy Grail, Diamond Encrusted, Baddest, of the Bad Ass Zombie Apocalypse stories ever. Damn i wish i could swear in this review!!
This is the Flipping, best Flipping, Zombie story i have ever Flipping listened to.
R. C. Bray at the helm, and holy sheet its an undead blast of epic proportions.
I've never heard dialogue, and story so utterly believable, and the terrifying pace is frantic, but absolutely hilarious in places.
This truly is perfection in my opinion.
The post apocalypse genre is swamp of total crap, with a few diamonds floating on the surface.
If you are looking for a hero who is an ex-Navy Seal \ Prepper \ Doctor \ al-round super human killer with good ole Christian values, then move along. You're in the wrong place.
No-one here can hot wire a car, or skin a baboon at 200 metres with just a toothbrush.
Gus is a normal, everyday guy, thrown in to the unimaginable.
Keith C. Blackmore is a true storyteller, and has created an absolute masterpiece.

Nothing ever changes in Sanders. The town's still got a video store, for God's sake. So why doesn't Eli Teague want to leave? Not that he'd ever admit it, but maybe he's been waiting - waiting for the traveler to come back. The one who's roared into his life twice before, pausing just long enough to drop tantalizing clues before disappearing in a cloud of gunfire and a squeal of tires. The one who's a walking anachronism, with her tricorne hat, flintlock rifle, and steampunked Model A Ford.

What a superb cosmic tale, from Peter Clines, a writer that has simply blown me away with every book i read from him. Marvelous characters that just grow on you, and dialogue that flows so naturally.
I had the audiobook version which was narrated by the ultra awesome Ray Porter.
I still maintain id buy an audio book on how to watch paint dry if Ray Porter was narrating it.
Peter Clines obviously agrees as this is not the first time the two have collaborated.
Paradox Bound is a history traversing wonder journey, that cleverly drifts back and forth through scenes, to tie up loose ends, and feels like an out of control rollercoaster in the dark.
So enjoyable i felt a real sense of loss when it had finished.

Every dog has its day. And for Lineker, a happy-go-lucky mongrel from Peckham, the day the world ends is his: finally a chance to prove to his owner just how loyal he can be. Reg, an agoraphobic writer with an obsession for 90s football, plans to wait out the impending doom in his second-floor flat, hiding himself away from the riots outside. But when an abandoned orphan shows up in the stairwell of their building, Reg and Lineker must brave the outside in order to save not only the child, but themselves....

It's an incredible book, and Adrian J. Walkers ability to bring humour and horror together is brilliant.

Would you listen to Rolling Thunder again? Why?

No. Never listen or read a book twice. Too many on my TBR list. Most importantly Dirk Patton has many more in this series for me to enjoy.

What other book might you compare Rolling Thunder to, and why?

Kind of comparable, but im enjoying this series as much as Joe McKinney's Dead City series (Which was absolutely epic), and Jonathon Mayberry's Joe Ledger character.

What about Jeffrey Kafer’s performance did you like?

OK, so Jeffrey Kafer is the finest narrator in the world. I'd listen to him narrate a tampax advertisment and still be on the edge of my seat

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

What's a nice girl like you doing eating a loser like me?

Brilliant book, with the king of narrators.

Hi, I'm God. And I have a confession to make. I live with my two best friends and the girl of my dreams, Persephone. When the opportunity knocks, we are usually down the pub having a few drinks, or we'll hang out in Christchurch Park until it gets dark then go home to do college stuff. Even though I struggle a bit financially, life is good, carefree. Well, they were. Things have started going downhill recently, from the moment I started killing people.

Welcome to Grueber's, the brand-new all-night supermarket chain with a difference. For its unfortunate customers, the ordinary looking store could be the last trip they ever make; for its shelves are stacked with horrific delicacies made from human flesh, and the store boasts a meat aisle that has to be seen to be believed. The unlikely group of unwitting shoppers must come together to not only survive, but to try to find a way to escape from the store and the inhuman staff who are keen for them to stay forever.
