& in just the right places. Absolutely loved the characters and the narrator - Wow! She did a brilliant job bringing the characters to life with what seems like such little effort. And I totally loved the little Easter egg at the end where the author and narrator interviewed each other. I’ve always wondered how they prepare a read and it was really interesting to hear the construction of this product from both sides.

I loved this series. Great character and RC Bray is my new favourite. The Captain - right up there with Wilson - you turned him into an awesome character. And dont get me started on the bad guys - they'd leave Neegan shaking in his boots. Certainly won't be disappointed if the series continues. Loved the prequels.

Well Done Narrator!!

A step away from what I normally listen to but thoroughly enjoyed. Not the most thrilling thriller but very clever writing and the performance was second to none. Totally brought the story to life. Pacing, character voices - well done you. Kept me listening and I'm about to download another.

Great to hear where the movie was adapted from

One of my favourite movies so have been looking at the Audiobook for a long time tossing up. Some of the comments about the tech/science put me off a little. Much easier to handle following the movie, so don't be put off. The book is a terrific listen and WW did a fantastic job with the narration. They didn't have to stray far from the novel to make the movie which shows just what a great piece of writing it is. Thoroughly enjoyed.

One of my Favourites

Read this story on the kindle and (under the current circumstances) thought it a worthwhile listen while gardening in isolation. Loved it just as much. It isn't all doom and gloom. A little prepping which is fun and less of the far fetched. The characters are worth investing in. Was a little weird going from the kindle and the voices in my head to the narrator but a couple of chapters and all was well. Only let down is that the rest in the series weren't recorded. Lots more weeds to pull and more isolation ahead me thinks!

Storyline kept me interested but the narrator was a bit hard to listen to. Thought maybe it was the initial character but then they were all the same. He has great intonation but it sounds like every character has OD'd on caffeine. The pacing maybe suited one or two given the circumstances but I probably would have pulled out the plugs if it wasn't for the storyline. The characters were worth investing in and I guess by the end you were used to it. I know CA and KP cant read everything but for me personally I wouldn't have persevered if the story and the characters weren't as engaging.

First time I thought Uh Oh.

A little slow in the first 40mins setting it up and I thought I would put it down and then bang. Game on. If I ended up in the apocalypse tomorrow and suddenly had to get it together this would be my go to. Enough honest prep for the regular folk that dont have hordes of beans and rice under the house. Enough reality so that the characters were real. Real people died. Real people survived. Surprised but one of my favourite in the genre. Loved the narrator of the first book but you get used to the second one soon enough (I just listened back to back while doing the garden). Narrator did a great job of the voices in this one and thoroughly enjoyed the ride. Worth the read right to the end.

First time listening to a podcast but it was free and with what I've been spending on Audible lately thought it would kill some hours on the drive. First episode, first 5 mins and thought well I've tried it back to my next book. End of episode 1 and I was intrigued. So told myself just on the city part of my drive. By episode 5 I was sure he deserved it. By episode 6 I thought he was guilty. By episode 9 I was thinking the police got it wrong. Like a great page turned I couldn't switch it off and this is testament to the wonderful narration, very clever storytelling and I really loved the production elements throughout. It was like listening to a great soundtrack. Maybe this is what all podcasts are like - I look forward to finding out. A great murder mystery with lots of twists and turns to keep you hooked. Well done!

Characters feel real, gritty and are thoughtfully developed as the story builds. The narration is really well done. First time I have plugged in and gone beginning to end. Pockets of fact which are always interesting. Great new storyline in the genre and well worth the listen. Excited for the next installment.

Solid but not outstanding.

I found this one a bit simple, the premise is new yes, but then it becomes same old, same old. Yes, rip roaring zombies but they've probably been done a little more originally with stronger writing. Felt like we had to cram in some bad language, cram in some lewdness just to tick the boxes. Characters were simplistic. Take it or leave it for me, probably wont be following the series forward for now. Felt a little like maybe this is the first book for the author?? Not sure, just a little amateurish amongst what is out there in the genre. Narration didnt bring anything much to the table but didnt detract either.
