    "This is where it lost me"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I personally was taking it as a little tongue in cheek and it was a fairly easy listen but it really went down hill when there was an entire section on Howie taking a dump/Howie staring at a hot girl/Clarence staring at a hot girl/back slapping for Howie turning into this incredible leader.

    A quick look online reveals there are several more novels and with no sign of stopping... I am not going to waste any more money on this. If you want a good zombie novel read/listen to World War Z. The author would do well to do so and realise why cannons and archers wouldn't drop "literally hundreds".

    Good effort, but falls short of the mark. Good narrator though!

    "Think I've Had Enough"

    I never thought I would say that about a zombie apocalypse story. But this third book in the series, for me, was pretty terrible. I really enjoyed the first two, so I eagerly bought and listened to this one.

    So many elements not to like: The cardboard manly men with their "fear the homosexual" banter. I mean here they are, fighting off hated zombies and the worst thing they could say to one another is that they are gay. I did not find that endearing or funny, no matter how realistic it might be for manly military men to engage in. But they blush at the slightest provocation, those being close proximity to a woman or a compliment. And they sure do love one another anyway. I mean, they'll lay down their lives for one another, but god forbid they are gay!

    The constant, never-ending blowing up of zombies. I know there are hoards, but how many ways and times can one describe heads and brains blowing up? Don't get me wrong, I enjoy zombie gore, but this was so repetitive as to be numbing.

    And the whole thing with Howie talking to his angry inner self and then yelling the lord's prayer at the zombie hoard. Sigh.

    And TMI about all that weaponry. I got it. They have guns. They have explosives. Do we really need descriptions of how they work? Again and again?

    And don't get me started on the infection scenario.

    A big disappointment and the series stops here for me. I hope Howie and Dave win, but not sure I care.

    Ok, I finished book one and book two. I really should have stopped there.

    A dozen guys spend a week bathing in zombie blood and gore, but suddenly one drop infects one poor guy? who then becomes the KING zombie..

    Shouting bible verses at zombies? REALLY?

    REALLY disappointing.

    "War and...all the stuff immediately preceding war"

    Good as ever! A bit bogged down with tactical details, but not to an unbearable degree- author keeps it broad and easy to follow without needing you to be a gun enthusiast to keep from passing out due to sheer boredom brought on by droning lists of models, calibers, comparisons of two nearly identical firearms, etc. Instead he focuses on actual tactics and preparations, littered with character building and interactions. By far the most tedious volume, but that's not saying much as days 1-6 weren't tedious in the least. May be slightly concerned and rather amused at the author's vast writing talents in regards to pooping.

    "Can't wait for the next one!"

    Another great installment in this unique series. Haywood does a very good job mixing the gravity of the story with some light-hearted humor. I especially like the "hive-mind" persona of the infection. It gives a fresh spin on the zombie genre and sets it apart from other series.

    "On the edge of my seat...."
    What did you love best about The Undead: Part 3?

    I've listened to the first 2 books and they were good, without a doubt. However, I like this book for different reasons. Book 3 is more about the battle within oneself. Howie is battling with what's right and what's wrong. What feels right and what ...I guess, feels wrong.

    By the end of this book, he finds his strength. The true strength that powers one even when he's on his last breath.


    Any additional comments?

    If you've started the series, keep going. It can only get better .....I think...

    "Howie of the Dead III"
    Any additional comments?

    I've enjoyed this series and that Haywood keeps upping the skills of the zombies to keep things interesting. In the second and (this) third installment however it seems that it loses its way. One thing about zombies is that they are impersonal killers and here Haywood takes the easy route and makes it personal. This creates a reason for them to pursue and launch mass attacks on Howie and his survivors. This takes away from the randomness that is part of the horror of the situation. Those old enough will remember Jaws II involved a Shark seeking revenge for the death of the Shark in Jaws I. This is sort of the same thing and hard to buy into. Also, the main characters repeatedly engage in unnecessary hand to hand combat with the zombies (oh theres a group of Zeds, lets stop our armored caravan and fight them mano a mano). Overall a good series with just these few gripes.

    "Great Series"
    What made the experience of listening to The Undead the most enjoyable?

    The material is a great new twist on the zombie genre which is overplayed right now. Dan Morgan's voice work is great and is a huge part of what makes this work so well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The infection, Mr Howie's drive and love for his sister, seeing Dave become more of a truly fleshed out character and one of my favorites in the entire series


    What about Dan Morgan’s performance did you like?

    How natural he makes it all sound. He has a "matter of fact" delivery on an entirely crazy subject matter while keeping it grounded in humanity as much as possible.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The infection is alive!


    Any additional comments?

    A great audiobook and if you love the zombie genre then this book is a nice refreshing change to it. It's a truly fun experience listening to this on my ride to and from work but the sign of a great audiobook is if I end up listening to it after my ride which for this one I ended up doing quite a bit.

    "Too monotonous"

    Out of all the books in this series (and I've listened to four), this is possibly the most boring to date. I found myself falling asleep through many chapters and not rewinding to find out what I missed. I know that there was a lot of character building in this particular book, but there simply wasn't enough action to keep me invested. The series is great, however and I plan to listen to all ten books.

    "First review after listening to nearly 200 books!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Undead the most enjoyable?

    Finally a Zombie book based in the UK that we can relate to.


    What other book might you compare The Undead to, and why?

    I've read lots of Zombie books but I suppose the nearest thing to it for me is Keith C. Blackmore Mountain Man series. But the major difference is that its based in the UK and not the US for a change.


    What does Dan Morgan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Clear and concise narrating. I tend to listen to audio books whilst driving.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    All of it. I have listened and enjoyed the first two books in the series but this book gripped me right from the start. I love the way a Night Shift Supermarket manager can transform into a fighting zombie warrior who leads thousands.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a brilliant read and I'd recommend it to any Zombie Apocalypse lovers!

    Would you listen to The Undead: Part 3 again? Why?

    It's just brilliant and you become so attached to the characters.


    What other book might you compare The Undead: Part 3 to, and why?

    You cannot compare this book to any other it's that good.


    What about Dan Morgan’s performance did you like?

    He makes you feel like you are one of the characters it's like they are there with you and you are kicking zombie backside with them.


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

    I wanted to yes, but didn't want to totally ignore everyone els around me.


    Any additional comments?

    Really really love the series just can't wait for the rest of the series to come out on audio book.
