The Best End of the World Ever

The first four books follow a series of people in their journey before, during and after the end of the world. Their struggles, joys, sadness, happiness, disasters and achievements along with more than a few zombies for good measure.
The books follow several characters in different locations throughout the United States as they live through an apocalypse, a virus has wiped out the majority of the population with a significant number returning from the dead to become flesh eating zombies, one bite and you are guaranteed to join their number.
We meet Decker, who is watching it all mapped from his window afraid to speak the woman in the apartment over the hall; Travis who saw things he can’t un-see and is blotting it all out; Erin and Izzy, two young orphans trying to survive alone; Mitch with a hard task he doesn’t know that he can complete; Ray a con man trying to lead an honest life; to name but a few.
The books were brilliantly read and I for one can’t wait for the next instalment of The Scattered and the Dead.
Give it a listen, I don’t think you’ll regret it.

WOW!

The narration was stupendous. The words paint a picture of things you don't want to imagine but can't help but to see. The character interactions had me cringing, crying out and laughing. Since I listen during my commute I'm sure I looked the fool as I couldn't help but react physically to some of the scenarios. Once again, Tim and L.T have created a world I cannot wait to re-visit!

Tense, thrilling apocalyptic series

This is a great post-apocalyptic zombie survival series! I usually stick to authors that I know because I hate bad writing, so it took some convincing for me to try these new authors I had never heard of. I'm so glad I gave them a chance! I love their books and it's really cool how prolific they are, because I regularly have a new book to read. This series is deeply disturbing, complex, scary, exciting - everything you want in a story about the end of the world. I love the characters, and I love seeing them develop over time. This series has kept me up late on many nights already and I'm looking forward to more sleepless nights with them. I've started listening to the audio books now after already reading the books, and I love the narrators and the experience of getting the story in this format! And I'm getting more out of the story that I missed on my first reading. Great series!

The beginning of a new world

These four books are the beginnings of a series of that tells the story of people rebuilding after an apocalyptic world. I really enjoy this wonderful series that takes us through the confusion and pain of people dealing with different stages of this disaster. We see and feel the emotions of different characters as this begins, a mother not wanting to infect her family, a father struggling to try to find a save place for his son's to live and hide during while he is dying. Most of all we hope with people learning to adjust to a new world. One where you don't know who you can trust anymore. And the strange new worlds we start building to reclaim our humanity.

Like no other!

This “Zombpoc” is like no other I’ve read, and I’ve read dozens.
The characters are great to follow along with and there’s always a tiny cliffhanger as you go along. Can’t wait for the next installment.
Most books from this genre are chock full of gore and this offers something so different. Survival and hope, blended in with terror and the raw exposure of human nature.

Just Okay

It definitely was not a favorite. I didn't love most of the characters, which was a major reason I just wasn't that interested in the book. I didn't return it mainly because it wasn't horrible and I wanted to have something to listen to.
The series is comprised of journal entries, books 1 & 3, and multi-character points of view, books 2&4. Traditional zombie book for the most part, but focuses more on the darkness of societal collapse.

Great storytelling and characters

I originally read Book 1 and loved it so I had to go back and read the series. I truly enjoyed the books and found myself getting more invested in the characters’ stories as I read. Storytelling and tone is great; tongue in cheek at times and always good at conjuring up strong visuals of each scene. As much a story about human psyche and personality as it is about the post-apocalyptic setting. Very much enjoyed.

Not for me !

Not sure why high ratings I guess these stories are not for me. Compared to other zombie apocalypse stories and I have read many many zombie stories. These stories were just too boring to finish too many flash forwards and flashbacks I was getting dizzy.

Boring

I’m not sure how one writes such sick and twisted characters and still make a story utterly boring. The story line is meandering, at best.

The narration was good quality, though. I will not be continuing this series.
