Listened to this as a podcast in, and it was very well narrated.
I listed to this book on Podcasts ..
And I absolutely loved it!!!
I tried to find it as a book .. But couldn't ANYWHERE !! LOL
So many twists and turns..
I listened to it all in one day.. Could not stop..
The ending was CRAZY..
It was a little bit sci-fi ish for me . But I still really enjoyed it .. Very well narrated.. Each character had it's own voice . The author read it which I love !
Can't wait for the next book if there is one..!??
Hope so !
Love that it was completely FREE
Sucks for him though be
This was an audiobook podcast read by the author. Is the zombie apocalypse a government conspiracy? How ethical is it to clone people to feed zombies? It was okay until the final act which turned into a "jumping the shark" moment but I won't spoil it for you. About half way through, I actually wondered if I would have enjoyed it more if someone else read the story.

"Melzer has single-handedly reinvented the zombie genre, while never abandoning everything we love about zombie stories - decaying flesh, the lust for human meat, brains exploding under well-aimed headshots."

Read the rest of my review here:
The story wasn't exactly what I was expecting, but it was good anyway. Very engaging and interesting! Imagine post-zombie apocalypse, when the government has literally contained the problem. What would the government be hiding?

I'm looking forward to listening to what happens next, as this is only Volume 1.

At first I thought this was gunna be like ever other zombie story or movie out there. I was wrong about that. It was written in a great way to tie two conspiracies together and it left me wanting more. I want the story to continue. Well done sir.
