Description

Mountain Man, book 1: 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.

Not only does he face a corpse-infested urban hell, human scavengers, and unending loneliness, but now a new mystery has risen.... The undead are disappearing from the streets. A force is gathering, beyond the mountain man's wildest nightmares, even more relentless and terrifying than the roaming tides of dead flesh. And it's preparing to hunt. Contains graphic language and scenes of violence.

Safari, book 2: A new mystery has risen for Gus - the undead are disappearing from the streets. A force is gathering, beyond the mountain man's darkest nightmares, even more relentless and terrifying than the roaming tides of dead flesh. And it's preparing to hunt.

Hellifax, book 3: A serial killer stalks the ice-glazed streets. Half-frozen deadheads choke the avenues. Infected vermin rise from the labyrinth of sewer systems, hungry for warm flesh. And a handful of survivors struggle to escape and find someplace safe. In his hunt for Tenner, Scott discovers he must contend with all of this, before things truly get worse. Welcome to Hellifax.

Got Ominbus?

One Credit, Three Great Books
First, let me say these are great Zombie books at regular price, the fact that two of them are basically free is a great deal. You can spend three credits or three times the money, for the price of this one omnibus. Even if you did not like the first book, you would only be out one credit. The even greater thing about this series, is that you can get, The Hospital, for free. Get that and if you don't love it, don't buy the omnibus. If you like The Hospital, you will like these three books.

Gus is the star of the first two books. He is a regular guy, no solider, no special training, everything he knows he learned watching movies from the Seventies and Eighties. He scratches his junk, worries about his bowel movements and does a lot of drinking. A lot of drinking. EVERY MORNING I SQUEEZE PIPE. I enjoyed the second book, Safari the most. Gus is pretty much the only character. We kind of watch him go mad. He has lived alone for a long time and his best friend his a bottle of Captain Morgan. It is kind of like Tom Hanks in Castaway and his soccer ball. There is a lot of language and a lot of gore.

The third book is great, but not as good as the first two. Scott is the main character and he is just not as interesting as Gus. There are some slow parts or some shoot-em up parts that bored me, but not many. This book is grosser then the first two and has some well written scenes. When Scott takes a walk with the Zombies and starts to panic, I almost had a panic attack with him. Very well written. The third book especially, you want to listen in as large as chunks as possible. The longer you listen the more you become part of the characters. Anytime you quit and come back, it takes a little while to get that involved again. I actually missed an exit once, I was so into the story.

Bray is perfect, perfect, perfect.

Great read, keeps you engaged

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

Yes. It's a great read if you're into zombie books. I found reasons to have alone time or take long drives because I wanted to hear how it turned out.

What did you like best about this story?

I was interested in the characters and their development; made me root for certain characters and despise others (oh, and the action wasn't bad either!). It was like watching a great mini series where you really can't wait for the next episode to see what happens next.

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

As usual, amazing. I've started choosing books solely because he's the narrator.

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

It's a zombie book...so no. :-)

Any additional comments?

Good read if you want to take a mental break and hear a great action story.

Love A Good Zombie Romp!

After realizing this story was set in Canada, and not Maryland, I settled in for the ride. The story of a drunk, with a zombie problem, is entertaining, and thrilling enough, for a veteran reader, of the genre.

Excellent writer

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

YES. Great writing, gut-churning horror, awesome characters and just plain fun.

Have you listened to any of R. C. Bray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

LOVE this guy. He was awesome in The Martian and just plain awesome in this series, too. He's good enough that I would buy a book simply because he's the narrator. You can't go wrong.

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

Despite its length, I think I really could sit through the entire thing.

Apocoliptic Omnibus

What did you love best about The Mountain Man Omnibus?

Mountain Man was a great addition to the genre because of the detail and full realization of the story. A lot of novels in the zombie biz have to short some areas to fit within the confines of a quick read. the Mountain Man series gets away from this by having a long view of the story. There are just as many descriptions of boring, do nothing days, as there are of quick intense action! I love that balance and full enjoy the series.

A break from the same old zombie fiction.

At first I found it hard to relate to Gus. After a few near death encounters, you really start to get the guy. Same with Scott. As you progress through the story, each character is developed nicely. Until you know the whole crowd pretty well. The good guys have it tough, but justice prevails...there are worse things than zombies in this book and they get what's coming to them.

Best Credit Spent EVER!

Where does The Mountain Man Omnibus rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

At the very top!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Mountain Man Omnibus?

Way too many to pick one. This is nearly 28 hours of listening for only one credit and I never felt bored or uninterested like I do with some books. I bought book four (Well Fed 17 hours) long before I finished this and it was just as good if not better.

Which character – as performed by R. C. Bray – was your favorite?

Gus, of course. He is the main character and by the time you are halfway through the first book, you feel like you know him. R.C. Bray is phenomenal and the perfect choice for this series.

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

There were several moving moments in the books and they were done perfectly. Keith C. Blackmore did a great job of sharing the characters emotions and I felt every single one of them. I laughed in parts, shared in the sadness of Gus at times and still feel very invested even at the end of the series.

Any additional comments?

Like the headline says and I truly mean it, this is the best credit that I have ever spent. This is my first zombie book besides The Walking Dead comics, and I feel like I will be let down by anything else in this genre that I read. I am in the middle of another zombie apocalypse book now and am struggling to make it through.

I have never been a listener with that much extra time. We have four boys and they take up nearly all of our time and energy, but I found myself making the time to listen to this series. I would listen for the 15 minutes in the truck after dropping one of the boys off for school, I would listen while I lay in bed with headphones when I should be sleeping and even bought a waterproof bluetooth speaker to listen in the shower. This series is that great. I was genuinely upset when I finished the last book because I didn't want it to end. I felt the same kind of way that I did when Breaking Bad finished. I will miss Gus and Scott in a similar way that I still miss Walt and Jesse.

Great Zombie book even it that's not your genre!

I usually stay in the mystery/espionage genre, but decided to try something different. This was a really good series and the narrator was spot on!

Get it, read it and don't look back.

One of the freshest takes on zpoc fiction without cheesy characters and mugging one liners. Can't wait to get into book 4!!

Canadian Walking Dead - Eh

If you like the Walking Dead and don't mind 27 hours of one dimensional story telling, this Omnibus is for you. Don't get me wrong, the books are entertaining and the writing is reasonable, but zombie skull crushing and endless "kill or be killed" situations, can only go so far. Best thing about this book is the Credit to Entertainment ratio, which is actually very high. As far as the performance goes, in these types of genres, RC Bray is always the best. So go ahead and indulge - even though I rate it 3 stars, you definitely get your credit's worth. Just don't expect to go around saying "I listened to this amazing book".
