Publisher's Summary

Howie’s group disembark from the Isle of Wight, but when the ferry they take breaks down they climb aboard a Royal Navy supply vessel at anchor outside Portsmouth Harbour to find a huge horde of undead. We meet Maddox and a group of council estate children who have survived the apocalypse by taking refuge in a cannabis plantation.

When a horde of undead attack the children, Howie tries to save them only to find they turn on him. Eventually a truce is called, and an uneasy alliance begins to develop.

Puts The Walking Dead to shame.

I'm big fan of this series, it took me a bit to get used to the English accent and slang buy I'm very glad I gave it a full chance. I can't wait to start the next one and the one after that......

Part 5

The Undead series is a great listen. it's funny and serious at the same time. My biggest issue with this series is that the books are too short. All of these parts to buy are going to make me stop buying them soon and I don't want that to happen!

What was the point?

I'm not really sure why this was a standalone story. It didn't advance the plot and seemed like it ended where it started. Although interesting, it seemed like a meandering side adventure that cost $13. It was nice to break up the monotony of the last book .

Council Estate?

Any additional comments?

Starting to depart from the sphere of Howey and team, I didn't know at first how I'd enjoy it. However the drama and great story that unfolds with the youth is quite engaging. without spoilers, there's a part you want to yell at the youths to grow up and see Howey and crew for what they are! I hope we return to this camp and see what has become of their dream, what I am deeming "camp lord of flies"

New Perspectives

For the first time, we get a sense of the world outside of Howie's little band. So far, we've been focused pretty much him or those connected to him. This is the first time that we see things from a point of view totally unconnected to the main characters. We get to see how a different group of survivors has coped with the situation. It seems as though Dan Morgan has gotten better at this. His voices are more well defined then they have been previously. All in all, a fantastic listen to continue the story.

different than all the other undead

this book deviated from the series storyline. Howie and his group play a very small part in this book. the main characters are a group of thud kids and how they are handling the zombies. of course, Howie does cross their path...it will be seen if this group of kids is threaded back in the storyline.

See you next Tuesday

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, but it must be one that is not offended by the over use of the "c" word. While I am not easily offended, the amount of vulgarities in this book can be off putting. That being said, a good zombie novel is hard to come by so finding one makes you want to share it and this is one that I will share. The scenes are well set, they don't come off like they are written by someone that lives in their mother's basement and their only experience with the word comes from video games.




What did you like best about this story?

just hearing what happens to Howie and his gang.

What does Dan Morgan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

You can actually tell the characters apart by his use of different voices.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not really, but it is a "page turner"

Any additional comments?

Like I said if you can get past all the swear words, this is actually a very good series.

Love this series!!

Any additional comments?
This Part 5 introduces the "gang" of kids led by Maddox. I cannot decide whether I like or hate Maddox. I tend to dislike him more often than not. He does not treat Howie with the respect and appreciation he is due and that offends me!! I dearly love Howie, Dave, Clarence and the "Lads" and I do not like when they are not treated well. This Part 5 is a little different from the rest of the books in the Series. It is still outstanding, but does not feature the Living Army as much as other books. Haywood continues to create outstanding characters with his excellent writing and Morgan continues to bring them alive with his excellent reading. This is a gripping series. I started with the free Deleted Scene (an hour long book) and was hooked. I listened to all that were in Audible.com and then started on the Kindle versions for the rest. As the new audio books were added, I listened to them even though I had read the Kindle versions. I have now finished Day Nineteen and must wait until Haywood write the next one. I am so addicted that the wait will be unbearable!! The series never gets flat or predictable. It is always interesting and compelling from Day One to Day Nineteen.

Great series..but one minor issue.<br />

I really enjoyed this book, especially the character growth. it's not a typical zombie slasher run of the mill book that, now a days, is a dime a dozen. you can not read it and not feel a close bond between Howie and Dave. The only problem I had with this series so far is how many times Howie says "mate". it's said so often, it almost takes away from the story and your mind is counting the number of times Howie says it rather than following along with their misadventure.
