Description

Collected here for the first time is every piece of short fiction from New York Times best seller Mira Grant's acclaimed Newsflesh series, with two new never-before-published novellas and all eight short works available for the first time in audio.

We had cured cancer. We had beaten the common cold. But in doing so, we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop. The infection spread, a man-made virus taking over bodies and minds, filling them with one unstoppable command...FEED.

Mira Grant creates a chilling portrait of an America paralyzed with fear. No one leaves their houses, and entire swaths of the country have been abandoned. And only the brave, the determined, or the very stupid venture out into the wild.

So Glad to get a chance to hear these read

Any additional comments?

I'm so glad to hear these stories read. I've loved the Newsflesh world since I first got a chance to read Feed, when it was donated to our local library by orbit as part of the marketing push right before Deadline came out.

Mira Grant is a writer who puts such loving detail into each of her characters, and I'm honestly a sucker for oral history/epistolary novel combos. And oh how I love zombies. Which has made my continued worsening vision a bane, as you can usually never get the short stories and novellas an author writes in audiobook format. But now, I get to hear them all in a days worth of reading bliss.

I'm only about six hours in, so I may come back to edit later, but I can already say that both the readers do an amazing job. And to anybody who like me finds multiple people playing different parts in an audio book distracting, not to worry. Each narrator takes on a complete short story or novella. Depending on if the story is narrated primarily by a woman or a man.

Flabbergasted

Each of the segments are so uniquely written that whilst they can be read as stand alone accounts the entire Newsflesh series is also so beautifully connected and interrelated it flows amazingly as a large singular account.
Other than that piece of information and that I almost didn't sleep for the entire 25 hours simply because I just couldn't stop, I'm a bit too wrapped up in processing right now to write more. It's truly a must have!!!

Not bad

The story wasn't bad, the performance was pretty well done. The real issue I found was the political sprinkling found throughout the book, I found it didn't lend itself to make the story any better or enhance the characters in anyway other than to satisfy the authors need to interject far left ideology for some reason.

All the Newsflesh goodness you could ever want

I loved Feed. I loved the sequels. I loved the shorts and novellas, but there were a lot and it was hard to keep track of them all (not complaining, this is a good problem to have). This collects then all in one nice package for all your zombie apocalypse needs!

The vocal performances were amazing and I really see the characters as I listened. (Especially Mahir and Foxy.) This is a very well produced audiobook.

I won't go into reviewing all the stories since they are available elsewhere, but I will say a word about the new material. They were excellent, and we _did_ ask for it.

Love the series

I really enjoy the Newsflesh series. I’m a zombie book lover and enjoy this series initially because of this. I stay for all of the additional story lines because the author has created a rich world with characters that are intriguing and well rounded. I well understand why this series has won awards. Those who like this unusual genre will be drawn in by this new refreshing look.

Great compilation of short stories

I really enjoyed listening to this collection of short stories. If you have read the Newsflesh series, this fills in the blanks and adds more detail to an already great read. It took me a few days to hear the whole thing. It's 24 hours long but it made for a great drive when I went on a long trip.

Good book, kept me entertained

What made the experience of listening to Rise the most enjoyable?

The flow of stories was good, they were put together in an order which made sense.

What other book might you compare Rise to and why?

I don't really think I have read any books that can compare to Rise. I was good.

Which scene was your favorite?

All the short books dealing with the lab and the Dr. were my favorite.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The un-dead Rise out of the ruined Earth. Follow the path of these chosen few as they make their way through the horrors that lie ahead.
