Summary

Rise of the Dead is a zombie novel with a lot of guts that aims for the brain, blending literary fiction with post-apocalyptic thrills.

Blake was never one for taking chances. He lived in a world of formulas and equations. A statistician in a controlled society where everything had become predictably mundane. That world disappeared the day the dead got up and began attacking the living.

Now, the end is here. Blake finds himself fighting for his life in a world that is rapidly spiraling out of control. He struggles to keep himself alive and must risk everything to find his family.

Along the way, Blake finds himself thrust among other unlikely survivors. Together they must adapt to the realities of the undead world, or join the legion of zombies. The characters must overcome their conditioned human apathy and come together if they have any chance of survival.

Rise of the Dead chronicles the first moments of the zombie apocalypse. While the story is a fast-paced thrill ride through an ever-growing zombie horde, the novel aims to draw upon familiar themes as those found in the Romero classic films.

Disappointing

After reading good reviews I was disappointed to find I couldn’t invest in the characters in this audiobook … the narrator was flat and boring …I won’t be buying book two

Entertaining

I really enjoyed this book, it was action packed, and an emotional rollercoaster, with interesting characters. It kept my attention and I'll be reading the next book. I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

Excellent book

I really enjoyed this story. The characters were well developed and the storyline had enough action but remained believable.
I found the narrators voice a bit annoying but that's just personal taste and it didn't impact on my overall view of the book.
