Susan Elizabeth Phillips is a star. Love her romances. 5 stars for the story & performance Why anyone thought putting a hideous musical overlay at the start of chapters was a good idea I have no idea.

Excruciating

Everything about this book was painful to listen to. The awkward laughing from the female narrator, the complete lack of chemistry.... you know it is bad when you find the sex scenes so uncomfortable that you fast forward...

Not much fun for me

I loved every single book in the Knitting in the City series, but I struggled with this one. Hoping for better on the next one. It just didn’t capture my imagination.

Yawn

If you want a story where nothing really happens, this is the story for you.

An interesting, fun & creative story - I enjoyed it more than his other books. Aimed at Young Adults I think but I enjoyed it as an adult reader. A bit reminiscent of Enders Game,

Not quite my favourite zombie story but if you are a gun & gore loving zombie freak you will enjoy it. I like that the characters aren’t idiots & they have some humanity. A perfectly good story if you are feeling zombie deprived but a bit lacking in depth for me :)

Hard going - definitely not for adults

I usually love a bit of Young Adult fiction but this was excruciating to listen to. Unless you are about 12 years old I really wouldn’t recommend it.

The hero of this story is a self-involved, impatient, mannerless man who defines his masculinity by his ability to curtly boss a woman around. If he actually knew what he was doing his controlling behaviour would be more palatable but his bumbling & nonsensical attempts to navigate the apocalypse are tiresome & frustrating.

Hmmm. I listened to this out of curiosity as it has an LGBTQI flavour. The first 26 Chapters seem largely about the character’s self-involved lives plus a bit of queer awareness & fat shaming. This book had a lot of good ideas but could have badly done with a better Editor. There is a lot of repetition of facts.

The plot made no sense. These horny bumbling fools talk a lot about panties & intentionally destroy what could be their last chance to find a cure for a virus that has already been released. Also the hero gets a coffee for his lady love rather than telling her he is about to blow up her building. Lots of nonsense unfortunately
