Can Kate teach stoner college kids to run and fight zombies before it’s too late?

She ran two hundred miles to find her son.

Zombies are everywhere...and survivors prey on the weak. 

Can Kate get the kids away from the Xbox and into the apocalypse?

Great story being ruined by the narrator!

This is a great series that has a lot of heart and great characters joining together to just get thru the zompoc. Save yourself and either read the book or use your screen reader to listen to it , bc the narrator ruined it for me. If she would just read the story in her own voice it would have been so much better but instead she has collage students sounding like either a toddler or a New York City gangster 😂! She reads the main character fine and she can do one decent male voice but all the other ones where ridiculous and completely pulled u out of the story. Seeing how this series is all about a large group of ppl trying to survive there is no way for u to be able to ignore this constantly. Having said that the actual story was very good . U can tell a lot of work went into researching the art of ultra runners bc it was all so real. If you like the author, Sarah Lyons Flemming then you will also enjoy this series . You will fall in love with these very real characters and also root for them to overcome Everything from zombies to gangs to lack of food and all modern amenities. I like that the main character is a mature woman who has a lot of life experiences bc we don’t usually get a 40-ish widowed mother as the heroine. The author does have alternate POV chapters in this book giving u the story from one of the collage kids or Kate’s new love interest. Which I loved bc u get to see things from a young adult perspective to a middle aged mom and even a soldier but Kate is our obvious leader. Goes to show never mess with a mother’s child no matter how old they are ! That unselfish love and dedicated drive of a mom is going to be everyone else’s worst nightmare wether alive or not!

Zombies at College

Dorm Life is the second in the "Ultra" series about a woman who is a long distance (ultra) marathon runner surviving the the zompoc. I loved the first in the series so was delighted to see several more have popped up on Audible (I bought the next two (3 & 4) already). Picott is a good writer and the narrator, G Druyor, is s great fit for the story. There are a crowd of new characters in this book, including (the runner) Kate's son, his girlfriend and a bunch of stoner college kids. Picott does a great job with the college kids who are largely unlikeable and frustrating in their obliviousness to the situation at first. Over time she wins them over and convinces most of them that they need to get fit, gather supplies, fortify their position and accept that the world isn't going back to normal any time soon.

The conflict in this book is mostly with other survivors while the z's, are present, they are not the major threat. I really enjoy the POV of Picott's characters. They are not prepper, survivalist, military vets. They are regular people who see things from their own perspective (which means they sometimes do things that make no sense). Most zompoc books, told from a male perspective would immediately go to a physical (kill them) solution when faced with raping, killing baddies, Picott's characters try to think of a way to get along with them first, which I admit I thought was stupid but I'm a guy. Kate nearly gets herself killed pursuing this tactic. While I didn't agree with it, I appreciated that it was an option with these characters. One that few zompoc books employ, and thus it was interesting.

There are a few things that stand out as sloppy narrative. The antagonists are largely one dimensional. There is never a moment of doubt in the role they play and they repeatedly do things that ensure we do not forget they are evil. Even when those things seem not to fit with their backgrounds. In confronting them, Kate comes up with a very smart plan but then executes it in the most stupid way possible. She only survives this part because she is the protagonist and its good to have the writer making sure you get to the end of the book. In a ridiculous scene (minor spoiler) Kate needs to kill the main bad guy, she has a loaded gun and is able to sneak up on him. Rather than shoot him from a safe distance, for no particular reason, she charges him. She ends up in a fight with him that she can't win.

Overall this is a good, entertaining book. As I said, I've already purchased the next two in the series and look forward to listening to them.

Engaging characters and story

I have enjoyed the first 2 books in this series greatly. I've laughed and cried along with the characters and can't wait to follow them into book 3.

Narrator?

It seems like the narrator changed between the first and 2nd books. The voices this narrator does are downright awful. Really took away from the story and I almost abandoned it before I was done. I didn't enjoy it as much as I could have if the narrator had been more believable.

I’ve been waiting for this audiobook!

After listening to the first Undead Ultra book, I was very eager for 2 & 3 to be made into audiobooks as well. Very entertaining - the last hour helped me enjoy every minute of a 7 mile run on the treadmill, which would otherwise feel painfully long and boring.

Ultra exciting

Without giving much of the book away. I found just like the first book this one was easy enough to listen all the way through without stopping. It picks up pretty much exactly where the first book lives off goes into the great in well-defined storyline that lead you into the zombie apocalypse unlike any other book I’ve listen to which is one of my main things is trying to find a different take or a different outlook on how to survive it or how it started basically I definitely Recommend this series.

Dorm Life

I don’t usually write reviews but at the end the author ask for one and as I enjoyed the writing so much I thought I would write a quick one.

If you liked (I love!!!) RR Haywood the undead you will enjoy this! There are fantastic relationships through the first two books which makes me want to go on and listen more. I am wishing for Frederico to turn up safe!!!
Just about to download the next instalment.
Definitely give it a listen….

Keep on runing

After reading and rereading the first book in this serien I was really loking forward to this one. And I was not dissapointed.
There isn’t as much running in this volume but there is still plenty of zombies. And bad guy’s. Added to the mix is a bunch of slackers in need of a new mother who wipes them in to shape.
If you liked the first one I think you will like this one.
And if you haven’t read the first book yet - you should do so before reading this one to get al the nuance.

Great story so far. Great narration. the narrator manages so many different voices. some are a little to squeaky and needly for my taste but still a great job
