Publisher's Summary

War pigs. Road savages. And the crumbling asphalt of the open highway.

After nearly four years, the zombie epidemic has almost burnt itself out. Gus' new life on a communal farm is peaceful. The daily routine of policing the fields is rarely disrupted by straying undead. His drinking binges are over. Long days have thrown time over the memories of Annapolis. But this will all change.

When Gus is asked to search for a group of missing scavengers, he reluctantly agrees. What he finds is a new predator unleashed upon the land, one determined to harvest every last mortal life.... And feed it to a ravenous machine.

I hope this series continues!

I love the Mountain Man books and this book was no exception!
R.C. Bray is an amazing narrator and the stories are interesting from start to finish!
The characters are well developed and Gus is brilliantly wrote with an appreciated balance.

A great finale

The entire Mountain Man series is excellent! I wouldn't call these zombie books, more like the amazing adventures or quests of a few individuals.
This series drew me because of the narrator (one of my favorites) Never interested in the zombie genre.
They held me because of the stories.
I have since delved into other zombie books and I return them shortly after I TRY to listen to them (same old same old)
The Mountain man series are truly stand-alone books.
These are action packed, humorous, lots of twists and turns. I couldn't wait to get off work so I could listen.
Thanks to Mr. Blackmore and RC Bray for the hours of great entertainment.

Canadian, eh! Finally!

It was one of the best story lines yet and not just because of it's Canadian setting. The characters were well developed and the relationships played into the story perfectly. I've listened to hundreds of hours of similar audio zombie stories and really didn't want this one to end.

BEST ONE OF THE SERIE

When the prequel came out, of course I had to relisten to the series... Again 😁. This one is non stop action and non stop "ah man come on Gus" and the introduction of the second best character of the Serie (no spoiler).
Its my 3rd time listening to the whole Serie cause once you start, you're hooked !!
M. Bray's performance is wonderful, Gus couldn't be Gus without that voice and the series wouldn't be as good without the way he makes you feel what they feel....
I, a woman, have now achieve complete knowledge of scrotum and testicular facts and all my questions have been answered LMAO 👍

Really brought it around

I kind of lost interest in the story after the zombie rats of book three but was stumped on a new book so I gave it another try. I'm glad I did because the story line got way better in book 5 and the narrator fits the role perfectly.

Black more & Bray and like Pizza & Beer

Another amazing entry in the Mountain Man Saga! This was a great listen, the characters are so familiar when brought to life by Bray that I'm almost certain that not only are they real people but that I know them. The action and despair are both palpable. This book leaves you wanting more and thankfully more is what we get! Keith C Blackmore should be on everyone's bookshelf and playlist, you owe it to yourself to check out the mountain man series at the very least then you will want to read all his stuff.

Didn't think it could get any better!!

Not even finished reading Well Fed and I am ready to rave about it. Gus is back and kicking butt as usual (yeah!) but the other characters from zombies, bad guys, and women that kick butt...Let me just say the author out did himself. I didn't know things could get any worse at the end of the world but they can! From humor, horror, and tears, everything I look for in a story Keith Blackmore gave it and more. The narrator handles every character's voice very well whether male or female (how does he do that?) This series is at the top of my list with The Remaining, and the Joe Ledger series. I went though a lot of bad reads before I finally discovered this one. Let me just say it was more than worth it.

absolute MASTERPIECE of audio excellence! !

This story is an excellent, believable and extremely well written and narrated finish to the Mountain Man Series. I was dissapointed with the rats in an earlier story line, no dissapointment in book four, NONE at all. Very creative and believable cast of characters, each easily identified via OUTSTANDING narration.

Best book of series

Excellent way to finish a series. Rc Bray does a terrific job narrating this very well written book. This is much more than just a zombie book. There's like 3 stories that all blend together throughout the story and Keith Blackmore wrote it all flawlessly. I didn't hear a dull minute. BRAVO!!!

Stupendous

I don't recall the last time I gave 5 stars for everything and if I could give more for this book, I would. 16 hours of incredible, can't-put-down, gripping and brutal story telling.

There was nothing predictable in this book. Many times I thought of a plot event that would be a very satisfying sense of justice and revenge, but nope, not too many things work out for Gus. You thought he took a beating in the other stories? This book is just gruesome.

I was a bit worried in the beginning because the zombies and rats were dying out and being hunted in a zombie filled house wasn't really what I was interested in reading about. But that was just the warm up.

This book is more about human raiders than zombies, which I usually don't like, but the story is just incredible, as is the narration, absolutely perfect.

Never have I loved Zombies so much

What did you love best about Well Fed?

I have to say I don't like Zombie novels. I only read the mountain man books because I happened to download The Hospital for free out of boredom waiting for my next credit to kick in on Audible. WOW.....after that I had to read\listen to mountain man book one, I was addicted! How can such a simple concept keep me so entertained. I felt I was with Gus during his adventures, and I was terrified! When the next two books were released to audible I nearly jumped for joy. When the fourth book was released I felt like it was Christmas and I was four years old getting that one gift I truly wanted. Thank you Brad for becoming one of my absolute favorites and surprising me by making me fall in love with Zombies. Love every book of the mountain man series, just can't get enough. Wish you would write 100 of them! I love GUS!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Gus of course, he is so simple yet heroic. Gus reminds me of an every day Joe that somehow becomes a hero of sorts.

What about R.C. Bray’s performance did you like?

Great distinct voice of all the different characters, great reading. just love this guy, he is the voice of GUS!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES!

Any additional comments?

Love them, keep them coming please!

Best of the Series!

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

You bet but you have to start from the beginning.

What did you like best about this story?

I like the way the undead progressed in this series. I also liked the addition of the " undead plague" that follows the zombies.

What does R.C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

R.C. Bray one of my favorites. He is so good.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Loved Ollie, his thoughts on his situation and how he handled himself.

Any additional comments?

I will miss Gus. I wish there were more. Well Done!

He's Back!

I can thank Keith Blackmore’s “The Hospital” his first book in this series, for really get me hooked on the zombie genre. And hooked I have become! Dam you Mr Blackmore! But as what happens over time, your taste changes, or at the very least you sample a larger variety on offer and you discover that there is so much more on offer. This addiction has cost me hundreds of dollars. However, the first two in this series have always held a special place in my memory. I found the main character Gus to be so endearing.

Out of the legion of other zombie stories I have listened to since those early days. I have always liked a story in which the main character reminded me of Gus. The dry sense of humour, the matter of fact way in which he deals with situations.

I like it when the author does not try to make the zombie story as serious one. I like it when it is a bit tongue in cheek. Gus fits this role extremely well.

I was not a big fan of the last one in the series ‘Hellifax’ probably largely because Gus was largely absent from it.

I am so pleased to report Gus is back! But, there is something about him which is different! He and the Captian don’t talk much anymore (well to begin with). However the thing which took me most by surprise is at times Gus no longer is the drunken superman that I had pictured him to be from the earlier titles in the series. He is now a much more worn out old bloke who wet’s himself when he is scared by other alpha males. He has lost his mojo!

There is so much to tell about this story, but I won’t because it will spoil the surprise of it all. But what I will say is that this one has really gone up a level!

There seems to be a level of maturity about it. The way in which the characters and storyline comes together over the previous book is huge improvement. This one was so good I wished the story wouldn’t come to a close. New developments in this one took me by complete surprise. Even though Gus may have lost his mojo, he is still the same old Gus!

The narration of Bray was once again excellent. He really is an excellent narrator for this type of story. The speed was a little slow and was best sped up a tad. So the story itself was shortened a little bit as a result. Might be important if you are watching your credit to hour value like me.

I don’t think anyone would purchase this title in the series without listening to the earlier books. So there is not much point in me saying ‘buy this one’. But if you are reading this review and you think you would like to give this series a go. My advice would be grab the free short story ‘The Hospital’ to test the waters. If like me you didn’t like the previous one in the series and you were a little wary about purchasing this one. Well don’t stress, this one is good, very good.

TWO THUMBS UP FROM THE FAST FAT MAN!

A great finish to a wonderful series.

Once again I was kept entertained throughout the entirety of the book, as I was with the first 3.5 in the series.

I couldn't wait to finish but I didn't want it to end... Home again, home again jiggity jig.

Good real good.

Must be good if looking forward to the next.
Just good fiction. Makes for some good listening. At 3-4 hundred titles, this series holds up.
