Summary

A small mountain town is isolated by a snowstorm as an ancient evil, gone pandemic, turns the residents into the living dead. Almost overnight the town becomes a snowy tomb of the roaming, hungry infected.

Stranded by the weather, hiding, a small group of survivors follows the progress of the disease as society around them and around the world begins to break down.

Determined to escape, they find that the normal rules of civilization don't apply anymore. Will they be able to adapt to this strange, hungry new world?

Contagion

This book would have been so much more interesting and appealing if the author would have chosen a different narrator. If any other author used Emily Beresford as a narrator be prepare to not sell ANY audible books. I listened to the sample and I was hoping that she only read that way for that small bit, but no such luck. As she reads a sentence her pitch rises in the middle of the sentence when it's not suppose to, she also talks louder than necessary and speaks so fast. You will not have to use the speed enhancements Audible offers. It's completely maddening. When she speaks in other people voices it's horrid, plus her pitch rises at incorrect times in other people voices also. I couldn't even focus on the book because of her voice, I had to listen to complete chapters several times. I am not a narrator i have never claimed to be one but I know how to read a story, I have children I've read to and was a school teacher for many years. I'm not claiming to be a narrator specialist either but if Emily Beresford can be allowed to read maybe I should get a job as a narrator. Or people with speech impediment's. Sorry for my rant, I just was very excited to read this series. I still want to. I guess I will have to read it myself to enjoy it though.

I would pass on this one

I love zombie books, but this one ugh. I will try to generalize this review to not ruin it for others so here we go. the main lead female character is annoying, I wanted to reach in and just smack her at times. the first part was ok but as it went it got worse by about the 75%-90% through it turned in to zombie/Christian book, not for me at all. The narrator's voice is awful, there is a review here that states why the narrator's reading is bad, the review is spot on, go read that one it details better then I can about why the narrator is so bad.
