Brutal, agonizing convulsions simultaneously strike a quarter of the Earth’s population. There is no warning and no discernible pattern regarding race, age, gender, or region. The afflicted die within moments of one another. Seven minutes later they rise again and attack the living. The speed at which the disaster happens is too great for any organized response. Towns are overrun. The government and military find themselves unable to react. Civilization crumbles in a matter of hours.

By the end of the first day, the streets are filled with shambling corpses, mindless beings driven solely by the desire to feed. Jacob Thornton decides his only chance is to abandon his home. Fleeing the city, he travels north, encountering other survivors on the way. Together, they gather supplies, seek a place of safety, and discover through trial and error how to defend against the zombies. Yet, the creatures never stop moving, and they have begun to leave the population centers, spreading across the land.

Entertaining, but a little unrealistic/idealistic about social interactions in a SHTF scenario

This is an entertaining podcast for a zombie fiction buff, but it’s unrealistic in regards to how civil people would be in a SHTF scenario. I truly do not think people will be so quick to help one another, as human nature is self-serving.

The narrator reads with the same emotion, regardless of what is taking place in the story, which makes the story a little difficult to follow at times. Also, “melee” is pronounced like “may-lay”, not “mee-lee”.

Lastly, I find it very irritating when people refer to firearm magazines as “clips”. The writer does not clearly have enough experience around firearms, for he wouldn’t be calling a mag a “clip”.

Meh

The narrator should apply for being certified as a sleep aid. I also think that the weighting needs A LOT of work. But it’s a good storyline, so I can endure.

This Could Have Been Good!

Of course everyone mentions the voice, but I could have gotten past that if only this podcast wasn’t so sexist and downright gross with the mid 30’s man/minor female relationship. Ew, dude.
It really does feel like the author is writing his gross apocalyptic sexual scenario where women fight over him. The story could totally do without.
I do like the amount of detail and explanation they go into about the zombies. I wish I could keep listening but I keep getting grossed out by how amazing this guy thinks he is and the pitiful, beautiful women throwing themselves at him. Trust me, no woman is going to be focusing on those things when you’re being chased by zombies.
