zombie galaxy outbreak Reviews
This audiobook was provided to me by Audiobook Jukebox for review.Unlike most zombie books this one does not start on Earth, instead it is on another planet, Caldor, which is essentially one big city and uses advanaced technology for just about everything. The way the zombie “disease” arrives and spreads is actually quite interesting, people use transmission pads to transport to and from places and it is the use of one of these new pads that brings the zombie disease onto Caldor. It is certainly not the typical start to a zombie story and the way it spreads so quickly using this everyday technology puts the entire planet in chaos in a matter of hours. With technology being not only the source of the initial infected person but the way it is spread to so many so quickly it gives the plague an eerie efficiency.Likely the most interesting twist of all in the whole story is that it’s not just humans who get infected, but the technology they use as well. One would think something like zombies would be restricted to sentient beings, but in this case it is not and that in itself proved to be a nice difference from other zombie stories.There were a number of characters introduced throughout the span of the book though each chapter focused on a certain character. The stories of each character became woven together, some right away, others closer to the end. I can’t say that there were any characters that leapt out at me as being truly amazing, but they each lent something to the story which made it flow smoothly through the events.The narration of the story was decent. I found that the narrator, Andrew Wehrlen, had a good voice to listen to however he spoke quite fast and there were times where the speed in which he spoke made me almost miss parts of the story. A bit slower narration would have made the overall experience of this audiobook better. The downside to the book. It was short, a little too short. The chapters were really fast and seemed to fly by way too fast even though the story steadily moved forward.The ending was a bit lackluster and in fact considering how short this book was it felt like the author broke it into two or more parts simply to make a series, which are growing in popularity over stand alone books, when it could easily have been done in a single book. Nonetheless it was an interesting book and a nice twist on the zombie genre. However if you are looking for a quick zombie read that is different and leads to more than this book is a good choice.
I'm a real sucker for zombies. So, a zombie apocalypse of galactic proportions? Hmmm... Sure, I knew it could be just another zombie apocalypse on sterroids, but I thought I'd take that risk based on the sheer magnitude. I downloaded this as an audiobook. I wound up being of two minds about it. I liked the story and the characters. I grew to like some of the characters and despize others. The implications took a surprising turn. The way the zombie contagion worked was new (I think...though there's a LOT of zombie material out there.). The story is "to be continued," but I'm looking forward to its continuation. On the downside, the narrator's voice modulated too much. I'd been playing it from my iPod on my truck radio on the way home from a hike and I kept having to turn the volume up and down. It's worth a read, but maybe only get the audio version if you're somewhere REALLY quiet.

Was ok. It started out strong and then went down hill. Not a fan of all that Christian/God crap saving humanity. But it was free... guess you get what you pay for so cant complain.
New and cool take on how the living dead begin their rise. This time it's in the future and in a new but, plausible way. I enjoyed it.
