Really enjoyed this book series

I thought this series was really well written, it took on a number of different perspectives and followed a number of groups, which I really liked however after much feedback TW cut down on this which I thought was disappointing, he also re-wrote the first few books following just one group each, these are 'Dead perspectives', 'Dead Vignettes' and 'Dead Geeks' I believe, so if you find lots of groups difficult to keep up with you might prefer these. He decided to keep it to 12 books which is a shame as it felt like there was a lot more these storylines could have given us. TW doesn’t shy away from the horror of what could happen and there is a lot of differences between the groups (which is why I'm unsure what others found so difficult about it, if they were all very similar it would have been confusing and boring but they are very very varied which I loved) but he doesn’t go too far into realms you don’t want to wander into (like the Zombie Fallout series by Tufo). I liked that it followed zombies on occasion too as well as groups of survivors and he wasn't afraid to kill people off when their time was done.

I like the spinoffs too, the 'Dead snapshots' are great, I like the attention to detail (the English one was pretty much on point re: lingo and culture) and I'm enjoying the new Dead series.

Very enjoyable listen

Would you consider the audio edition of DEAD: Revelations to be better than the print version?

Don't know only do audible as i work :)

What other book might you compare DEAD: Revelations to, and why?

Hard to compare as DEAD is much darker than most Zombie books but it is as enjoyable in different ways to Zombie Fallout series

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes as with all DEAD books

Any additional comments?

I would like personally more high points as after all what is the point of survival if the world becomes so dark but at least there is good left in some people. Really great to follow the survival groups and in this book you get to stay with them a bit longer so can be more emotionally joined with them. There is a couple of really dark characters i would be so happy to read of their demise but as you read DEAD the author will be real and will show you the world is not fair. No-one is safe in this brilliantly written world.

Great continuation of the story

Would you consider the audio edition of DEAD: Revelations to be better than the print version?

I didn't read the print version, but since I love audiobooks so much, I'm going to say YES!

What other book might you compare DEAD: Revelations to and why?

The other books in the series, of course.

Which character – as performed by Andrew McFerrin – was your favorite?

Steve

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No laughing in this book. And no, it didn't make me cry, but there were cringe worthy moments.

Tight like a tiger

Would you consider the audio edition of Dead: Revelations to be better than the print version?

I don't get much time to read however I am able to listen to audio books at work. Considering the high quality of the audio and the smooth cadence and character voices of the narrarator, I can only imagine that it is.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead: Revelations?

One thing about the Dead series is it's abundance of characters. With so many to follow, there were memorable moments from each group. One particular moment that made me laugh inapropiatly involved Keven underestimating the power of a bomb he built and catching his hair on fire. (Not a funny moment, but I couldn't help it)

Which character – as performed by Andrew McFerrin – was your favorite?

Andrew does such a great job at giving each and every character their own unique voice, which with the amount of characters in this series, is no small task. As far as liking the voices of the characters, I like the way he voices the Dr.s (Reginal, Zohn & Peter) I also like Tallia, Jaun & Shaw.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Indeed. I started listening to this book during the second half of my work day. I continued to listen on my 1 hour commute home and then into the evening until I was forced to pause until the next morning.

Any additional comments?

While this is a series that is classified as horror and deals with the subject of zombies, it is largely about survival, human nature and how things change when it all goes down. Although this series deals with some disturbing subject matter at times, it is not vulgar or meant to tantalize. I respect that T.W. Brown did not exclude such subject matter as so many other writers in this genre have. I have no doubt that if there were a "zombie apocalypse", things would be much worse than what he has included.

Great 2nd book in this series!

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This is a great continuation of the zombie apocalypse story. The narrator continues to be FANTASTIC! The series continues to follow the groups from book 1 and still pulls no punches. Definitely a series I will continue.

Addictive

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

T.W. Brown created a terrifying post apocalyptic world and doesn't shy away from exposing the worst of humanity to the readers.

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend this book to every fan of the Post Apocalyptic Zombie genre

Love this series!

I love how this author pays homage to all of the zombie writers who have come before him. I've already downloaded the next few in the series. I highly recommend this series to all zombie fiends!

Another fun ride!

What made the experience of listening to DEAD: Revelations the most enjoyable?

I'm not sure if the narrator just grew on me or he just has grown as a narrator and that I felt it was a much more solid experience, but I really enjoyed this story as read to me by Andrew McFerrin much more than in the first book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of DEAD: Revelations?

The vignettes were interesting - plugged into the story to make the world seem more fleshed out though in part I wish some of those had tied in to some of the people our heroes had bumped into after their demise. I really enjoy the Geek story lines. I'm not a huge fan of Heather (even though she's 16), she can be grating during the narration or of the torturing maniac, Garth or Gareth. But it's all in line with the story and following several different angles along the way. I particularly enjoy the reunion of the Geeks and Steve's story (and when he finds out a secret plot point in the book). Lee is a jerk, but there are good guys and bad guys- the same as any real situation.

Any additional comments?

I'll continue on with the series. All I can say is, if you weren't too sure about book 1's narration...hang in there and listen to book 2 and I think it'll help solve whatever it was about book 1 that I personally had a few narration reserves about. A fun - but TWISTED series.
