First disappointment

I am a huge fan of this series. I look forward to every book that comes out. This story just drug on and annoyed me. From a main character standpoint, it went nowhere. It was a filler book introducing unrealistically cruel characters while also introducing incredible new passive qualities to the characters that have to this point been pivotal. I stopped listening to the story out of shear irritation only to go back to it and be annoyed again. It was a disservice to sell this as a progression to the story line. It should have been a peripheral tale although it would still be bad at that. It may be enough to drive me away from the series.

Depressing

Eighteen books at 20 a pop for one story and while the overall plot slowly dribbled out the character development and banter made it a worthwhile listen. Now the Nineteenth. The plot went nowhere, it was eleven hours of preaching, politics, repetition and political correctness run amok. The other days left me hopeful this left me depressed.

Spoliers. Lily does a complete shift. She snarks off to Kyle that Howie won't be happy as if he had no legit reason to hold back info. Shades of an earlier day - Howie's not happy with the fort and everyone will die. Lily doesn't want answers or further info. She's mad at the team for leaving even if they had to go to protect the fort. Sex with Nick is disgusting, a mistake, and now wrong, not love. She was brave, smart, thinks ahead, but doesn't notice the fort is falling apart.

All these strong personalities but when a new woman weaves a flimsy story of rape Pea and the rest believe her and jump on the bandwagon. No one stops Dr. Lisa from snarking off all over the place. The adults in the room left. The only people you can hate are the unwashed, the over weight with double chins and white males with tribal tattoos. If so you are automatically a racist, rapist and murder. Old, male and white, you are worthless. The political correctness and negativity was unrelenting and repetitive. Did we really have to hear anti-Muslim and pro-British chants over and over?
A new character, Mary is rude, obnoxious, angry and bashes her way into places, carries a giant feminist ship on her shoulder and within two days she and Lily are kissing and develop a potential sexual relationship. Pressure unrelenting - -but lots of hours listening to tea and coffee breaks, section head discussion and sex, sex.

By the time it gets to who made the virus, catch the bad guys or find them dead, or a final battle, the end of the story, the title will be 50 shades of undead. Does the author know where this is going or did he rush out a book for the money.

Great Series

My only issue with this part of the story is that there was not enough about Howie and his group. It was ok.

Not my favorite.

So what's next? An entire book from the Viewpoint of the Saxon? Too much blah blah blah.
the Fort may have been an integral part of the story at the beginning, but it faded to background, where it should have remained, a definite part of the story but not the focal point.
They're certainly could have been sections of the story that continued with howie and his group, as well as what was happening at the fort. Several other books in this series have followed more than one storyline in this manner.
Other than this one instance, I have enjoyed the books thus far, and I hope the next one returns to the previous style of writing.

Worst in the series, dull

Lost the plot. Too much of another side trip. Dull and lacklustre, will have to reconsider continuing the series.

If you love series don't bother with this book

No Howie, no Dave and no zombies. I have listened to every book in this series and I loved them. I love the characters in all the other books, very funny and for most part a very positive feel. This one is depressing. It was nothing like the other books in the series.

Disappointed

My son and I are huge fans of this series. I loved all the other books in this series, but not this one. The story just drug on too slow, and never spent any time with Howie and his group. I felt like I was listening to a side story, and not a book from this series. I am left feeling like I am still waiting for the next book.

Where was Howie, Dave & the Gang?

Disappointed on many fronts - love this series, but not this installment. First, a little too much in politics - authors need to stay away from that , unless that is what he story is all about.
& totally unrealistic that a 16 year old is in charge of a community . Nope sorry - not buying it.
& the time frame moves too slow- when in hell are we going to get to where they are dealing with winter ?
19 books & it only covers 3 weeks. & in that time a man who has no military experience or really no experience in leadership or survivors like or combat , becomes the leader of a crew of young inexperienced & they become a mighty force in just a couple of days...........................................
In spite of all these flaws I do like the series because the characters are likable.

Skip this book, next books recap will cover all.

It has become a story about the descriptions than a plot. This book alone has repeated a variant of an incident that had been done twice now. Differences are that it took a complete book to describe. Spent more time than most on character building that was done very well, just to remove them. What was focused in this book was over kill for the days it represents. that leads me to believe this was just a story arc. in total, skip this book, and listen to the next.
