I loved it! As a lot of you zombie fans know, most new zombie books fall flat.....very very flat. This one though, was really good. I hated to see it end and am hoping this is the first in a series. The ending does have closure, which is satisfying, but a second book can easily pick up where this one ends.
The narrator was great!
I have nothing bad to say about this book. I hope there there's more to come of this story.

Where does Rise of the Dead rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I would have to say this book is in my top 5 books.
What other book might you compare Rise of the Dead to and why?
I would put this book up with and above most zombie novels. It felt like the author took his time with the story. It wasn't rushed, and it shows. This gave me time to absorb what was taking place, and really enjoy what I was listening to. I've found some zombie apocalypse books to move through time too quickly and not really letting the listener/reader really get the feel of what's taking place. This book was just the opposite.
What about John R. Crosthwaite’s performance did you like?
I really enjoyed John R. Crosthwaite's voice. His was very smooth, and enjoyable to listen to. He did a good job altering his voice so that the listener had no trouble identifying the characters in the book. At the same time he didn't over do it. His voice was just right.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I did listen to quite a number of hours in one sitting, and it was great. When I wasn't listening to the book I often found myself thinking about the characters, and the book and I really felt the urge to turn it back on so I could continue listening.
Any additional comments?
I felt that there were a few times where the pause between chapters was a little too long. At first I thought it was my device, but then the story started again. When this happened a second time, I realized it was in the recording and not my device. Other than that I loved the book, and can't wait for more.
On a final note, as I've seen other people post on their reviews: I did receive a free download for this book in exchange for the review. However, I listened to the book and I enjoyed it, and my comments are truly how I feel about the book.
