Boomstick. Samurai bat. Motorcycle leather. And the will to live among the unliving. Augustus Berry lives a day-to-day existence comprised of waking up, getting drunk, and preparing for the inevitable day when "they" will come up the side of his mountain and penetrate his fortress. Living on the outskirts of a city and scavenging for whatever supplies remain after civilization died two years ago, Gus knows that every time he goes down into undead suburbia could be his last.

Do I have to write one of these novels myself?

Characters: uninspired/ mostly annoying/ unlikely to survive a stubbed toe
Story: tired, poorly executed
Writing: highschool graduate quality

Side note: If you know nothing about firearms (or firearms law in Canada) maybe just avoid writing about them.

I can not for the life of me understand why this sort of writing is being reviewed so highly in audible?

Blackwater is the saga of a small town, Perdido, Alabama, and Elinor Dammert, the stranger who arrives there under mysterious circumstances on Easter Sunday, 1919. On the surface, Elinor is gracious, charming, anxious to belong in Perdido, and eager to marry Oscar Caskey, the eldest son of Perdido's first family. But her beautiful exterior hides a shocking secret. Beneath the waters of the Perdido River, she turns into something terrifying, a creature whispered about in stories that have chilled the residents of Perdido for generations.

While this is both well written, and well performed, it is little more than a turn of the century soap opera. Incidences of the macabre or even the uncanny are precious few and far between, which is NOT what i expected from the synopsis of this book.
