Publisher's Summary

What happens when the inevitable zombie apocalypse finally does arrive? Does the world bow down to the masses of shambling dead? Do we run out with flame-throwers and chainsaw-bladed weed-whackers to take care of the undead horde? No, we do to them what we do to every other annoying person in the world: We put them on television for our entertainment.

Set in a near future in which society has dealt with the global outbreak of the living dead, a new, highly lucrative international sport, zombie pit fighting, emerges. No Flesh Shall Be Spared is the story of Cleese, his recruitment and rise to supremacy in this violent world, where every match could be his last. The Dead will fall. Friends will die. The question that arises is that of Cleese's fate in the ensuing mayhem.

It's something to play in the background

There's a lot of filler and that gets really annoying. Im fine with a zombie book not being 100% action but it's too much unessential information in this book. It's also pretty sexist but that didn't come as a huge surprise. There's only one woman charecter in the story and the main charecter describes her as the only woman he ever knew to hold her own in a fight. Really? The only one even during a zombie apocalyspe?

The main charecter is also not very compelling. A badass wise guy type that will only come off as cool to a 12 year old boy. I can't really find myself rooting for him. But it was free and it's 15 hours long so it's something to listen to while im cleaning or at work.

Zombies made for high schoolers

I won't rehash a synopsis of the story. It's a book about zombies and the one guy who fights his way through. There are things that I liked about this book. Really. The fighting, the action, the moving story line, and the narrator did a pretty decent job with different voices, but ultimately I felt that the story was a bit low brow even for being a zombie story. Here's why:

1) Main character Cleese is always the perfect guy, even when he makes a mistake; however he's pretty inconsistent throughout the story. In one chapter, he's a drinking, hard hitting guy that takes no sh*t and the next chapter he suddenly doesn't drink booze and has to be "coerced" into taking a sip. Seems unlikely.
2) The book is riddled with "before time" with stories of dead church goers, zombie grocery shoppers, and school age children. Some of these stories do center around the characters (before they came under the protection of the League) but other stories had absolutely nothing to do with the plot. At all.
3) The author will spend a whole chapter (or two) introducing a character only to kill them off in a ridiculous way. What's more ridiculous than dying by the recently dead? I'll let you read and figure that out, but just know that some of deaths are very unbecoming when you spent a few chapters getting to know the character. Or at least thinking you know the character.
4) Very predictable storyline. Who died was up to the League. The freshest zombies move quickly, some of the zombies learn, others talk, others retain former bits of themselves and choose not to kill...Over the years many authors have tried different takes on the zombie genre but this author encompasses most of the ideas that others before have had. It's just too much.
5) It just ends. Many authors leave room for a possible sequel but this story just "drops" and I suppose you will be enticed to continue with the story. No such luck for me.

Again, love the zombie genre, but this particular book was just for background that I used while working and cleaning around the house and I still felt that I didn't miss anything. It was an ok read, but nothing new or great. Just another zombie book I finished, but at least it's done.

Not my cup of tea

I found the story concept to be ludicrous. Narrator is flat and not engaging to me.

Great performance could use more research

The Cherry point refinery and Semihmoo resort area are near that gas station. The locals do not talk like the kid did. Also, no Canadians were mentioned. All of the action listed is around Birch Bay and Blaine Washington.

Not what I expected

I was going into this expecting zombie apocalypse, that isn't what I got. Sure it's set post zombie apocalypse, but besides short section of peoples back stories, showing thier reasoning for thier situation, this aspect had little to do with the story.

Sure the story revolves around zombies more or less, but zombies are a very small part of the story. The threat of zombies is miniscule.

However, this was a decent story, although it suggest different then what it is. Labeled properly, and not going into it expecting true post apocalyptic havoc, over more or less human dog fighting enterprise, with a little love and trauma, it would have set better.

Basic Zombie story

Has some great moments, though not anything that really stood out as different. Any zombie fan will definitely enjoy this.
