Summary

From the early 1900s right up to Z-Day, the Grove Park Inn was the place for the affluent to stay when vacationing in Asheville, NC. Everyone from F. Scott Fitzgerald to President Barak Obama stayed at the Grove Park. Artists, actors, diplomats, masters of industry, all called it a temporary home at one point or another. But that was before the zombie apocalypse.

Now the five-story stone, brick, and wood luxury inn is home to a different element. An unknown element. A heavily armed element.

With Whispering Pines being rebuilt, Jace "Long Pork" Stanford has nothing better to do than find out who the newcomers are. Well, while he’s not busy dealing with the ever present Z hordes. Or running for his life from paramilitary mercenaries. Or possibly blowing up more of the zombie-infested city because he can’t help pressing buttons. Buttons are meant to be pressed, even in the apocalypse, right?

Looks like it’s just another day in Z-Burbia!

Action and Humour what more do you need?

Jace the main character continues in his best sarcastic form. The last 40 minutes made me wet my pants from laughter!

After the first book which I loved, I was worried that the second in the series would go in a direction which would ruin the ‘fun’ factor. However, the opposite happened. The fun factor went upwards. This story is a mixture of ‘adult comic book’ style violence and the Seinfeld show.

This book also continues the tradition of having an ending which causes me to wonder where the author is going to take the next in the series. I certainly did not expect the last few minutes of this one!

The narrator once again does an excellent job with the multiple characters. Just like almost every other title of late, the listening speed can be increased. 1.25x speed was easily listened to.

I enjoyed book 2 so much I purchased the third in the series before I even finished this one. I said in my review that the first book was in my top ten. But this one is in my top five!
While many people talk about Mark Tufo’s Zombie Fallout series as being great, I would rate this series up there as almost an equal. I can highly recommend this one!

Better than production

Jake Bible is a talented writer. This series is as action packed as it is funny. These stories deserve a better narrator.

Great series

I love this series! The characters are getting more and more added to their backstories. This story shows a reaching out which is so important in real life scary times. There were a couple of times where I thought didn’t they ever watch a zombie movie but not many. Andrew Wehrlen is fantastic!

Great book

This is a really good zombie series. Plastered with little amusements such as "you eat shit and it comes out shitier". Highly enjoyable.

Well, not all the military but it’s hard to determine who are the good guys. In a rare stroke of luck Jas and crew discover a large fenced-in farm where they can safely recuperate. Elsbeth is in fine form, protecting her new family while taking out the Z’s. Eventually, the goal is to return home to Whispering Pines.

I can't get enough of this series

What made the experience of listening to Z-Burbia 2: Parkway To Hell, Volume 2 the most enjoyable?

Elsbeth. I always looked forward to her scenes because it was almost a guarantee that she would say something that would make me bust out into laughter.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Z-Burbia 2: Parkway To Hell, Volume 2?

Definitely towards the end. Jace minus a hand

Which scene was your favorite?

All of Elsbeth's crazy zombie killing sprees

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

I was constantly laughing reading this book.

Any additional comments?

I have blown through reading this series since reading this book. There is always constant excitement. I love a book where they can make a serious situation seem a little lighter with comedy. Some parts may have been a little overkill but I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Still good

Not as good as first but still worth a listen. Narration is wonderful. Story a bit thin. Didn't like the story that unfolding near the end

More laughs!

This series is hilarious! The first person narrative has a witty, snarky personality that is impossible not to love. He, meaning Jace Stanford, is sarcastic at the right times, self-deprecating when he knows he deserves it, and a smart ass to the people who seem to deserve it. More than that, in this story Jace shows significant growth by the end. His character is developing into something far beyond what he thinks he is capable of.
Wehrlen continues to be a superb choice to narrate this series, as his voice really allows the sarcasm to drip, ooze, or explode as needed.
