absolute garbage writing.

Either the author has zero common survival sense or thinks it makes good suspense. The characters are so braindead it made me cringe, trying to suffer through the 30 hours but I don't think it's going to happen.

GREAT WRITER! GREAT READER!

Finally a well-done Apocalyptic series. I love TW PIPERBROOKS books. Not sure what took me so long to listen to this series.It’s a box set now which makes it affordable.Troy Duran did a great job narrating. I listen to this genre all the time and I would put this in the top ten. I'm going right to this team's next series Outage, Thank you for many nerve-rattling hours,worrying about the great characters you've brought to life.

Excellent

Well thought out. This series is suspenseful, exciting, and overall a great story. My only complaint is that it had to end. I don’t like going into details while writing reviews because I don’t want to accidentally give something away. I will say that I loved this series and highly recommended it.

Intriguing beginning, author got lost in the way.

Piperbrook's "Contamination" series is a technically correct set of books. The quality of editing is outstanding, the language is correct, the pacing is proper, the narration, although unusual, allows you to immerse yourself in the story. The major problem though is the storyline itself.

You have an intriguing beginning in books 1 & 2, that quickly turns into an idiotic telenovela with caricature characters. Nothing is thought through. The reader keeps second guessing the writer and the story starts to feel like an idiotic improbable rambling of the village fool. By the end of book 3 it becomes hard to continue listening. I stopped at book 4.

It's well worth a discounted credit or buying it at a sale.

Not complete

This is NOT the complete series. There are clearly follow up books. Whether the characters central to the current story will have further appearances is not clear. But it is clear that the world built in these books is not done for the author.

The next book is less than 5 hours long. I have to believe that this storyline has been split into more fairly short “books”, or actually novellas being sold as books, in order to maximize the monetary return. Milking your readers is NOT a way to engender a loyal fan base. Hence the overall score of three stars with performance and story receiving four stars.

I liked the series. I do not like the way it is being marketed.

Sorry, but very dull, remedial, and very long

I felt like this was just going to drone on and on forever. No energy or real emotion, no character building beyond all good or all evil. Reader was slow, methodical, and the constant use of the words "companion," "creatures" and such repetitive phrasing made it clear there was very little creativity behind this writing. I finished listening to see if it revved up or got any better and it really just never did...

Slowly progressing story!

Dan Lowry was a police officer for the past five years in St. Matthews, a small town in Arizona. Senior Officer Howard Barrett arrived at the station for the night shift. Frank was the only prisoner for a drunk and disorderly charge at the Down Under, a local bar. Dan went home for supper with his wife Julie and daughter Quinn. Before he got home, Howard called him back to the station. Something terrible had happened and Frank was dead. Sam and Delta were tooling down a Utah highway on his motorcycle looking for survivors. They found the Two Rocks Trading Post. Government Agent Cromwell was deciding which city to visit first; Denver or Baton Rouge. Agent Hopper monitored security screens, wondering if Salt Lake City had been infected yet. Meredith Tilly and John Parish were late-blooming lovers and all was going well until John’s wife appeared in his store. With John’s store under attack, all was forgiven and Meredith went to save him. As the saga continues, it switches from person or group to follow their situation to survive. It is presumed that the infected would only survive for a few weeks before they would succumb to the virus. The origin of the virus is believed to be a government plot to destroy humanity because we've been bad in a left-wing liberal sort of way. Much confusion, a lack of direction, and stupid people that never learn. It’s a slow process and I see why it has been provided as a box set.

Good story line but very poorly written

The writing in this series was horrible. The reader can tell that the writer did little to no research and without doing any research on the writer, you can tell what he is knowledgeable about and what he is NOT. The mark of s good author, ar least in my opinion, is when the reader doesn’t see those small mistakes like you see in these books, and you can totally engross yourself in the story. If I was writing about say music or a musician, I would consult with someone who is a musician to at least get the nomenclature, and terminology correct. This series falls extremely short in that area. Some of the story line action was unrealistic (as in normal people, even under stress, what not do that or act that way). That’s a lose, for me anyways. Ending on a positive note: The overall plot of the story wasn’t bad and the characters were likable.

A very generic zombie story.

I enjoyed Piperbrook's "The last survivors" series, which is why I went for this one. However the writing and the plot seemed very formulaic. Two dimensional characters. One character, Sam, is constantly referred to as "The Store Owner" although this fact has no bearing on the story after the opening scenes. It's as if the writer or editor has carried out a "Find/Replace" action to replace "Sam" with "The Store Owner" on every second occasion.
The narrator would have been ok, but he sounds like he has a blocked nose which is quite distracting.

Pathetic

There are some really good end of times books out there, but this is NOT one of them. Do not waste your time. I spent 21 hours trying to get through the 34 hours and it was just so nails on chalk board that I had to stop. If you value your sanity do not bother with this series!

don't bother

I think this was written by a 10 year old, the hero's should be called laurel and hardy as I have never encountered more inept main characters . if I had paid for this I would not be impressed, as it was I couldn't finish it.

Stoo-pid

TW Piperbrook had the outline of a great story. The marathon is engaging and Mr Duran does the best with the material. Unfortunately TW has accidentally written some of the most frustratingly stupid characters I've come across. By the end of some chapters you are actively hoping for their demise. Unintentionally hilarious.

Contamination Boxed Set

I loved this series and it’s characters! I felt attached to them and got worried when they were in trouble. I have laughed in places too, which was nice during an apocalyptic story! I found the people to be easy to relate to.
Thank you for writing such great books!
Highly recommend

very repetitive

I persisted through all seven books and would rate these books as the most boring story i have read this year
they get into trouble and then out of trouble, this repeats over and over again, the whole story could have been told in one short book.
