Avis de l'équipe

Brad Lawrence gives an enthralling performance of Dead Tide, the first book in the apocalyptic series by Stephen A. North. He imbues each character with a distinct voice, shifting accent and tone with remarkable ease. In St. Petersburg and Pinellas Park, Florida, disaster strikes but it proves nearly impossible to evacuate. It seems the dead are reanimating, and they hunger for human flesh. Most residents watch the drama unfold on television rather than take action. Then the power goes out. Can they overcome their passivity and find a solution to their problems? Will they be able to rise above the death and destruction?

Description

"There are no contingency plans for this!"

The dead are coming back to life, filled with a single-minded urge to devour the living. While the power was on, some people followed the bigger picture on television; but the news media is little more than a chronicler of the disaster. Sadly, most people are better at becoming part of the problem than finding a way to solve it. "The most important question becomes: Are there enough resilient survivors left to stem the rising dead tide of humanity?"

For lovers of all things Zombie!

Would you listen to Dead Tide again? Why?

I would definitely listen to Dead Tide again. The jumping between characters at climatic points made me want to listen longer. I would take this to the gym with me, I would find myself excersing longer just to hear what happened.

Any additional comments?

I really liked this story. I've read the book and have now had the pleasure to listen on audiobook as well. It's a great read!

Just couldn't get through it & that is rare for me

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Can't really put my finger on it, wether it is the narration or the story or the two combined but I just couldn't get through the book! I rise to step away & listened to few other books then went back to give it another shot.. Just a all around stinker! Sorry! I don't like giving bad reviews but I wish if of had one to have warned me prior to wasting a credit!

Takes bad to a new low

Don't! This is so very bad! Where to start? Begins with the most effeminate yet excessively articulate group of soldiers in a firefight - it actually made me laugh at first then made me mad as it slipped down the well-greased slope of non-literature. Clearly the author had zero self awareness to write such gibberish. And this considering the low expectations one has when one actually likes zombie stories. So the written dialogue really can't be voiced well - but narrator bears a lot of this responsibility but in the end the story just stinks. Way too many characters, accents were uneven so in the end they all kind of sound the same. The story is limp, characterizations ala 7th grade English class and the dialogue is just unbearably bad. I kept hoping it'd get better but after listening to almost the whole thing I just had to write a review to spare listeners the pain, cost, and earache this causes. In sum, narration is bad, story is worse. I would so love to return this book.

Couln't get through it

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The narration was very un-professional. Good attempt, but it sounded like something I would expect from a freebie from Libra-Vox.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The story was pretty good, but I couldn't finish it due to the bad narration.

Only If You are in Dire Straits

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A better story and narrator.

What was most disappointing about Stephen A. North’s story?

The characters jump around a lot, and the book is actually boring. It did not have much going on, and I found it hard to focus.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

He was not right for this particular story.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

With all of the books coming out in this genre, you can wait on this. It is not horrible, but wait until you are finished with the MANY better books in this field!

Could not stand the narrators voice

Any additional comments?

I only made it about 10 minutes in before giving up, the narration is terrible.

Horrible probably worse I've read

Oh my what can I say. I just got around to listening to this and what a disappointment. Dry, cliche, dull characters, narration bland don't waste your credit.
