Publisher's Summary

Rick, an aging Vietnam veteran, alcoholic, and prepper, convinces Zach Gunderson that the apocalypse is on the horizon. The two of them take refuge at a remote farm. As the zombie plague rages, they face a terrifying fight for survival. They soon learn, however, that the walking dead are not the only monsters.

    "A great first book"

    This is s great first book. Anyone with an interest in zombies, or just a well written book with interesting characters, will love this book. The type of book where you will immediately go "I want to get book two."

    Compliments to the narrator for brining the characters to life.

    "Don't waste your money!!"

    I am an avid fan of Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead and other post-apocalyptic novels so was really looking forward to this book. What a disappointment!! In fact, don't waste your money. It lacks any sense of drama in the situation whatsoever. In fact the narrator might as well be describing a dreary Sunday afternoon drive in the countryside. I also agree with one of the earlier reviews. The writer's constant references to sex and to women's bodies really begins to irritate, and actually becomes a bit disgusting in the end. There is one description, the killing of their first zombie where the two main protagonists proceed to describe the zombie's body and her breasts! Not nice at all.
    A completely lost opportunity!

    "Creepy, not in a good way"

    I can't believe the good reviews this has got, the author's creepy obsession with young teenage girls is made even worse by the fact that he's a middle aged man (google him), I assumed this was written by a frustrated teenager. Unless you're a misogynist or a teenage boy I would avoid at all costs.

    "Ticks almost all the zombie novel boxes.."

    Good, well laid out concept which rolls along at a great pace. This is the first book of a series and I'll be straight onto the second. Well narrated and produced...

    "JUST BECAUSE I'M CRAZY, DON'T MEAN"

    I'VE LOST MY MIND
    I am Impatient and with many books and, I only get through three hours. I did listen to all 10+ hours of this, which says much. I bought the book, months ago but was not that excited to listen. Think I was put off by the cover and the reviews. It is not a bad book, and if the sequels go on sale, I will read on.

    I REALIZED THEY WERE QUITE PREDICTABLE
    This starts out as a YA book. Kid is a sophomore in High School, has crush on girl, Jock steals girl away from him, and than beats him up. This has a today twist of the beating going viral on U-tube. We are a couple of hours into the book before any Zombies appear. About once every other hour a Zombie wonders on to the scene, as if the writer went , Oh ya, this is called Zombie Rules. The rules are everything you already know about Zombies if you have read one other Zombie book. While I enjoyed the book, I had problems with the main character being a teenager and all these older men make him their leader. The prepper is an older man who magically makes Zach his friend, yet Zach is the one with the mature head on his shoulder and the one that solves all problems. The Zombies, were the same old Zombies and rarely even made an appearance. The kid has no raging hormones and kisses his girlfriend on the head a lot. The rules are like, Thanks Captain Obvious. There also seems to be a preoccupation with bodily functions. I know we all fart, relieve are bowels, take a leak and girls have menstrual periods and use tampons, but not sure why we constantly have to be reminded about it.

    PAYBACKS ARE A BITCH
    I know the narrator was good, cause I never ever thought of him. In most of my reviews I like to make a comment about the narrator. It was not until I got to the right now, that I realized that someone read the book to me. You can't get better than that.

    "Teenage Wish Fulfillment Drivel"

    Where to begin?

    The story is 'apocalypse by the numbers'.
    Characters are so thin that if they turned sideways they'd vanish.
    The writing varies in quality from painful to facepalm and stops at all points in between.
    The dialogue especially is staggeringly bad.
    Our hero, a teenager, knows absolutely everything about everything (astrology, history, farming, tactics and on and on), and is as adept at showing up teachers with his scholarly skills as he is grizzled old veterans with his planning and military acumen.
    I cannot think of a single redeeming feature about this, except that the narrator does a creditable job which the material.
    Women are useless in the apocalypse it seems.
    At one point a character trades honey for used women's underwear. No, I'm not making this up but Iam getting miserable trying to review this. Honestly, it's utter drivel, so bad it could almost be a parody but it's just not that self-aware.
    Try the Mountain Man books, or The Remaining books, but avoid this.

    "Very entertaining"

    I started with book three, which was fine as a standalone book but going Bach and reading book 1 has been so much fun. I think they are very well written, I particularly enjoy the dialogue and how the narrator brings the characters to life. Very satisfying. Don't listen to the haters.

    I rarely get hooked into a book series like I have this one. I've listened to it multiple times, which is another rarity. I would absolutely recommend.

    "Zombie apocalypse or YA novel?"

    Not too shabby. Smart main character, for a 16 year old. Didn't expect the buggary 5 minutes in, but that didn't form a pattern. Step 1 for being a zombie apocalypse survivor: Be a prepper. Step 2: Hole up in your isolated farm. Step 3: Don't go into Nashville...

    "Good book, just need to keep the storyline in order"

    This book was pretty interesting to listen to. Like many zombie books, this one ran over a few of the basics in survival following Z-Day, however this book gave a new perspective. Some of the things the characters discussed in the book are thing s that I haven't seen in other books, heck I hadn't thought of a few of them myself. That was quite refreshing and gave me something to to think about when it comes to zombies.
    My only real complaint about this book concerns chronology. Randomly throughout the story, the main character will give us a bit of information, only to later learn that he had no business knowing such information until much later. Perfect example, Z tells us the back story about Righteous Rick was given to us at least a chapter or two before he even learns about it. It gives he sense that you missed something or that the book is skipping.
