Publisher's Summary

In a world where a virus has spread turning most of the population into flesh-eating monsters, there are two friends partying it up in New Orleans when the infection hits. Far away from home, they are trapped and trying to make sense of all that has happened with the help of new friends and enemies along the way. Zombies aren't the only thing to fear.

Great first book in the series

I had read the description of this book a few times but passed it by. After not really finding anything else I was interested in I resignedly used my credit... and I’m so glad I did!! The characters were great... I got really invested in the story right away. It does end on a cliffhanger but that’s pretty normal for this genre. Nothing seemed too far fetched and it was refreshing to have characters who were unprepared but also had common sense (especially women in PA zombie fiction).

The story was awesome! The performance was awful!

Loved the story !!
The performance was awful! Performer emitted panic when non was called for. Practically had to keep my hand on the volume control most of the book. When panic was called for and necessary, The performer shreeked at a decibel that left my ears ringing well after the book was done. I would really like to read the second book, but my ears can't take it. I purchase audible books so that I can drive while listening. But in this case I had to keep my hand my cell phone volume control during the whole book.

enjoyed

I enjoyed this 1st book. narrator was decent - males voices is not her strong suit - they all sounded the same - definitely not a true southerner trying to use a southern accent. all in all she did well.

This would be paradise

With so many zombie genre our it’s hard to find a good story! I loved the book but the reader wasn’t good at all. Her voice would pitch at wrong times sometimes so loud my speakers would distort. I did like the book though :)

Good Zombie Book

What did you love best about This Would Be Paradise?

A good solid zombie story. Great characters, nice setting, good twists.

What was one of the most memorable moments of This Would Be Paradise?

I cannot really say without being a spoiler.

What three words best describe Carly Robins’s performance?

Excited, Spirited, and jagged

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

not so much, it was a good distraction, and solid book.

Any additional comments?

After 3 failed zombie books, my review is against all books not just the genre. The last three zombie books I read were disappointed at best, so a solid book without strange garbage was a nice surprise. So to put it bluntly, this is the only good zombie book I've listen to so far on Audible.
