Thank You RR Haywood

Was this worth the wait?
A million x yes! Holy mackerel, 21+ books in the series and I hope it never ends. It is UNBELIEVABLE how good this book is. I didn’t want it to end, ever.

The book was fantastic. The writing is fantastic. The narration is fantastic. If you have not started this series, don’t wait.

The story is so good. After this long wait, I was not expecting too much. I was blown away. I was laughing, I was crying, I could not put it down.

The narration is the best I have ever heard. Those are so many character but you know which one is talking just by the voice. He keeps it doing, give the perfect amount of tension when it’s called for. Speeds up when the action really gets going too.

The writing is great. RR Haywood seems to repeat a lot of scenarios but every time it fresh and new. 21+ books in a Zombie series (They’re not Zombies, I know Reginald) and each one is fresh.

I cannot wait for more. I really cannot wait for more.

RR Haywood, thank you for so much fantastic entertainment. This series is superb. All of your series’ are wonderful. I am so grateful for the opportunity to read your books.

The Best

Someone mentioned the censored words in chapter 20. That was from Dave's portion and he doesn't like using swear words.
So as he's repeating someone else's words he bleeps them out. R R Haywood always delivers and can't wait to listen to the next one which I hope doesn't take too long.

I have been waiting this for so long, but...

I have listed to this book series 4 times, its my absolute favorite. I have been waiting for this audible book for a few years. On that note, I feel the narrator miss the mark. The best thing about RR. Haywood is his story telling, you absolutely feel like you know the characters. The narrator should have maybe listened to his previous recordings to freshen up on the characters voices. Some sounded similar but some not at all, I feel like it gave it an unfamiliar vibe. I really missed the characters on this one. Still to me one of the best book series out there, can't wait for the next in the series. Hopefully with a better capture on the characters from previous recordings.

The Boss Never Disappoints!

I had already read the The Heat but wanted to listen to it as well as Joe Jameson does such a fantastic job on all the voices. I have heard all the series and can only anticipate each new book when done. This has everything you could ever want, like a block buster movie in my head. Zombies, action, intrigue, friendship heartbreaking ups and downs and the ending or the ending, you will have to experience it for yourself!

RR Haywood did not disappoint!

I absolutely flew through this book. I love the characters and the story line.

A few things I could critique (just my opinion of course) would be that Tappy seemed to become more like Blinky's character in this book (bouncy/ADD/ immature/spoke in a rush) . I liked how Tappy was written in when she first appeared in the book before.

I always felt that the previous books were mostly drama , suspense, and horror with just the right amount of humor sprinkled in whereas this book seemed to go overboard with the humor and banter at times.

Didn't care for the repetitiveness that comes with the "diary" keeping either.

Those things being said, absolutely loved the book and was hanging on every word

The Saxon on the Blacktop!!

Even through all these books and story arcs, this author is still wonderfully inventive and creative. The cheer-out-loud moments are still there. The characters are as clever and funny as ever, and the humor never seems forced or contrived. Makes me think that Haywood and the people in his life must also be so clever and funny!
Joe Jameson? Great as ever. So many voices. He’s the kind of reader that has you searching for new books by narrator.

Joe Jameson gives a masterclass in narration

I remember when I was disgusted by the initial switch in narrator. Oh how wrong I was Jameson is so effective at differentiating characters you genuinely forget it's a one man show. From accents to gender he nails it. Particularly impressive feat when multiple characters are conversing at once and you don't need to be told who it's meant to portray as each character has such an identity. I don't know how he manages to do the female voices so well then switch to a deep baratone. Gifted.

He's done it again

How Mr Haywood manages to come up with such great ideas for The Undead, again and again, is fantastic. I loved this day, number 29, in the life of Howie and Co. The format of having them all narrate the story as if writing a diary was a great idea. I can't wait for the next day to be released. Please Rich, can you hurry it up? Thanks.

A grand day out but nothing achieved.

Another page turner for the jokes and action that don't wear out for me personally.

Worst narration performance by far in the series. Typically a narrator I enjoy but the mixed up voices in this are more numerous and irritating.

The story doesn't progress at all.

Heather and Paco sections are boring.

The zombies that used to be able to stop the Saxon quite easily are now just mown down with ease. They seem to grow in number but not intelligence in this book.

There is no resolution to the Howie & Henry situation but there wouldn't be after a day - why would there be? Although the whole theme and point of the book seems to be set around that so ultimately the plot doesn't even achieve what it set out do - other than lazily writing Henry into the hive mind which is pretty cheap.

No need to cram all of that into a single day. The tempo didn't even feel like a day. Due to the sublimely ridiculous situations I still found this to be an earworm and finished it in just under 2 working days. Enjoyed but a very weak entry - not my best day ever.

Loved the storytelling through diary entries

I loved how the boss managed to tell the same story through diary entries. As not everyone’s story was told I was expecting some casualties in the group. Dave’s entry was the funniest as all swear words were beeped out. 😂😂😂

Boss, it was worth the wait. Take your time and come up with the right next chapter in one of my favourite series.

Also please give cooky a happy ending. He clearly hasn’t had one before!!

Another captivating rollercoaster.

The undead series gets better and better. RR Haywood has the ability to pull the reader/listener in to be a participant on the roller coaster that is without a doubt the best ride ever. F**k em' we'll win!
