This is pretty much how the book goes. "Hey what's that sound? Oh my gosh, it's the bad guys/zombies! Oooh, let's stop and look at that shiny thing for a minute or five first." This is usually followed with some sort of yelling by the other person who is standing/running beside them and then the yeller sees something shiny and it's reversed. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

I'm going to poke myself in the eye (figuratively) and listen to the 3rd "season" (that's audiobook to you and me.) Don't a

Liz and Saul's relationship is really getting that with Peg and Michael and the shit is ridiculous! How in the hell do you have relationship when there is no time for that! They should be focused on fighting the fight and helping people survive.

Great second season, just as good as the first. I continue to be amazed at what an awesome story this is in a unique and free format. The character development is remarkable. The group encountered so many harrowing things both in and out of the Tower, and it is always exciting and interesting, especially as all the survivors (not just those in the Tower) learn more about the "zombies" who are clearly a lot different and more advanced than typical zombies. I did feel that there were two character ...more

BEST PODCAST EVER!! This podcast has the best sound effects, voice actors and plot of any out there to date. Listen and you are hooked, it's that simple. It's not your normal "zombie" story either. No, not in the least. The characters have depth, the storyline has momentum and the voice actors are so relatable that you could swear you lived next door to at least one of them at some point in your life. Don't let the zombie part fool you. This series is one of the best I've listened to in all the ...more

We're Alive just continues to be a fun, creepy roller-coaster ride. We meet new characters, lose old ones, and generally continue to explore the ways that the living are a much bigger threat than the very threatening undead. I am intrigued to see where the creators take their version of the zombie myth, which they have already been very creative with. The end leaves the group largely in shambles and I am quite desperate to discover what will happen to all of them - which means I am going to have ...more

Podcast set up like the good old fashioned radio-dramas of yester-year. First time I finished was in 31 Jan 2012 but I had to re-listen to get into the Third Season. Loving every minute of it all over again.

I'm finding interesting parallels to the story line here and The Walking Dead graphic novels/television series but when you think of it, it's only natural. These story lines are what many people would follow in order to survive a zombie-apocalypse and each other.

This is by far one of the best 'podcasts' I have ever listen to. I have not read the book by I have 'heard' thru many sources that this podcast 'reads' better than the book. Which as you know that most books tend to carry more depth than the movie scripts ect.......that being said the charcter devlopement is done really well....I cant speak enough about the actors you will really enjoy this podcast. I would highly reccomend listening to it!

I love the idea of the story and the events keep you on the edge of your seat but... I don't like the characters.
It's not the quality of the storyline it's the horrible way they turn on each other, whinge, rage, despair and half an hour later have a passionate change of heart.
Couldn't there just be one nice character that uses manners during a zombie apocalypse?

An absolutely amazing follow up to the first season. We're alive keeps up the tension all the way through introducing even more elements to the plot and revisiting a few things that weren't fully explained in the first season without letting the plot get too complicated on convoluted. A zombie masterpiece.

The second series was a blast. The character development and story was top notch. Also Mr.Wayland loves to sprinkle his hints throughout, which you tend to discover during a re-listen.

Give series a try if you haven't, you won't regret it!

Amazing character audio drama, go start listening now! You will be right there with the characters from the very beginning. Thrilling story, great range of characters and very good audio story experience. I got into it because of zombies, but this is really more of a character drama and a good one!

Season 2 podcast. Glad I did not listen as released as the wait between instalments would be awful! Great character development and plot twists. Still scary and nailbiting at times, always so well produced.

another fantastic chapter to the story. I love most of the characters and have been enjoying watching them grow. I love how its a zombie story but not a zombie story at the same time. I highly recommend giving this a listen

Really good characters. Excellent sound effects. The story wasn't as good as the first season. Still a very entertaining listen. Will listen to the third season.

I love this series. I am listening to the audio version and it's a full production, like the war of the worlds.

Zombies of a different breed. Altered and always changing.

I love the full cast with sound effects. It reminds me of the old radio shows.

Still exciting and entertaining. Plenty of mystery and humor, too. End on a cliffie, though, so have Season Three handy!
