Cool audio drama. The characters had individual personalities and a unique story and a interesting concept. Shows zombies in a very different way then the norm and even more so with free openness and working side by side with humans as equal coworkers in the workplace.

This book is odd and if you like odd, like I do, that is a good thing. It is the most creative look at a zombie story I have read so far, but that may change as I read more zombie books. The only problem really was that it was short and a few things I felt weren't prefaced enough. I would have liked to know more about the world that this story inhabited but that is because I was curious, not because it was not explored enough for the purposes of the story.

This audiodrama made me laugh and gave me something to take my mind off the extrememly boring task of cleaning all the venetian blinds in my new house. I'm a sucker for anything with zombies in it, especially if it's funny.

All of the cast did a great job!

Entertaining, but definitely not top notch. I think my favorite repeating line was "bigot" done in the audio version with JC Hutchins. That one line saved the story line for me. The intro and outro songs were classic also. Definitely a fun listen.

Awesome audio drama about a firm being bought out by a Zombie firm. Neat voices and a solid understanding of the business culture make it a fun read.
Good multi-voiced performance and probably the best way to enjoy this tale. I recommend the author and her works.

I like Mur Lafferty's style, but zombie humor really doesn't work for me. Wrong kind of dark, I think.

It wasn't a bad audio book. While I wouldn't listen to it again I thought it was good for a laugh.

I give this 3 out of 5 stars
