Summary

When a writer, down on his luck, takes an assignment as a reporter for a small-town newspaper he figures life couldn't get much worse or mundane, being that the town in which he is to reside is on one of those fabled roads that are seldom crossed...even by folks that are lost. But the town of Gabyvale is about to get interesting. Interesting enough to write home about. 

Kent Hill, author of DeathMaster and Zombie Park, takes you on yet another bizarre romp which showcases the weird side of town-and-country living.

Retirement village

Kent Hill grossed me out again.I only got halfway through this one.Not the fun I was hoping for. karl A. Nordman was a fine narrator though.I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

Laughter from start to end

Kent Hill does it again I laughed all the way through while Kent tells a story of old farts, aliens and you got a brilliant story line. I would compare Kent to the writing mans Peter Jackson. pick up any of Kents books and you will be hooked.

Fun and Silly

This is a fun and perhaps a bit goofy short story that I enjoyed, though I suspect part of that reason is because I have the same sense of humor as an adolescent boy. If you're easily offended by fart and sex jokes, you may want to find something else, but if that sounds like the perfect way to spend an hour to you, this'll do just fine.

Different and Hilarious

Just when you think you have read everything there is that could be written about zombies you encounter a book like this one. There were parts that the humor of the situation took me by surprise and had me laughing. The narrator was hilarious and did a great job . I could see the characters and just made it funnier. Great book for your collection.

Full of humor and fun!

If you like pop culture references and crude humor this book is for you! The author does a great job of weaving you through both in this wild crazy world he’s created!

fun but strange...

definately not for kids! it was a fun story to listen to though the language and adult situations again make this an adult read only! I enjoyed the story and the narration very much! I had no idea what would happen next and was amused all the way through!

Another Top Notch Zombie Tale

I am really enjoying Kent Hill's short stories/novellas (I am not sure where the line between those two points is - or if it even matters). They're well put together and well told. They're the perfect way to consume an audiobook in a single sitting, rather like an episode of a good TV show. The narration is also very good and that's really important in this format. If you're looking for a taste of his talents, this is a great place to start. Give it a whirl, you won't regret it. Please note: I received a free copy of this for review purposes. However, that does not alter the opinion presented here which is all my own.

Great Story!

I received this audio book for free in exchange for my honest review. This is a humorous story that is both well written and fantastically narrated.

This story is quite unique and creative. I absolutely loved the narrator's voice and accent.
