This is the ultimate underdog vs zombies story. If you have a macabe sense of humor you will love this book. This is the first zombie book I had ever read, and I was hooked. I found out about Blackmore by another book he wrote that was funny as hell with an excellent story called The Missing Boatman. I think I have read every book he has published and haven't been disappointed yet.

Ill give it two stars simply because it was cheap but these four and five star reviews? Books give you insights to the characters thoughts, a behind the scene. While not poorly written, just seemed shallow. The first 20 minutes of Shawn of the Dead had more content than this book did in my opinion.

4 Stars I was completely entertained by this audiobook. I am giving it 4 stars based completely on the entertainment value of the story. I am a huge fan of The Walking Dead and love a good zombie story. I stumbled upon the short prequel to this series on audible as a freebie,The Hospital: The First Mountain Man Story, and really enjoyed it so I decided to jump right into this book. Gus has it pretty good during this apocalyptic time. He has a house in the mountains that is really almost a fortress. The house he lives in would be the perfect place to find when the world falls apart. He has electricity from the solar panels on the house. He has a well with a working pump. He even has an extensive video collection as well as a quite a few books. Gus is very focused on making sure he has enough supplies to get through the winter. Every few days or so, he heads into town in his van to look for supplies. Apparently, there has not been a huge rush on alcohol once the zombies came around because he has not had any trouble finding enough booze to spend many evenings passed out drunk. This story was really episodic in the way that it was told. There would be an immediate problem that needed to be dealt with and it would be addressed. I kind of liked the way this story was told because I tended to listen to this audiobook in short bursts. This story was really just a story survival during the zombie apocalypse with a lot of drinking and swearing. I listened to the audible audiobook and thought that the narrator did a wonderful job with the story. Each character had his own voice and the narration kept me very focused on the story. I would recommend this book to others who are looking for a zombie story. This book has everything you would need in a zombie story - action, humor, likable characters, toilet paper, and enough booze to make a fraternity happy. There is a lot of cussing in this story that may bother some readers. I found it to be a rather enjoyable novel. I would probably suggest to anyone who isn't sure about this series to try the prequel, The Hospital, before jumping into this story just to get a feel for the storytelling and the world.

The Hospital is a lead in to the rest of the Mountain Man series. The Hospital was the first Keith Blackmore book I read. I just finished reading the entire Mountain Man series and I loved the entire series. These are such good stories, they are exciting, engaging and real, and you can easily empathize with the characters. I enjoyed this series very much and recommend it to all Zombie fans. I'm almost finished with The Missing Boatman which is not a Zombie story but still very good. Keith C. Blackmore is becoming one of my favorite authors.

I'll likely read the sequal that we are set up for in this first installment.

All of the euphemisms for toilet paper in this audiobook stuck out to me: Crap Wrap, Ass Wipe, TP, Apocalypse Gold and Anal Gold. These names I’ve never heard of had me rolling around laughing in my work chair and almost made my Asian noodles shoot out my nose. Augustus "Gus" Berry is back for a full-length adventure. Remember, we first met him in The Hospital, and some time has passed since this debauch. For a moment early on, I thought this was going to be a story of one man's quest, in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, to find all the remaining pillowy softness a guy could want. Now we get to really know what Gus is all about. When you break this story down, it’s really all about survival. One man's struggle to be comfortable while at home. Yes, this does take a considerable amount of work for Gus to keep the food, water, crap wrap, oh and don't forget his booze supplies, to their maximum. We get to follow Gus on several of these supply runs and experience the close calls, the elation and the terror as he does. Then the inevitable day comes when he encounters actual living people, something that hasn't happened for a while. Now there are two. The secondary story of the Mountain Man is one of love, and not romance, but rather the kind of wordless brotherly love that I have only seen between two men. Until a third person enters the story. Blackmore wasn't able to fool me with his plot twists, as I saw most of them coming, but that did not take away at all from the great survival story with zombies. This was not about, mainly anyways, how cruel and brutal humans can be in a zombie apocalypse, like most in this genre. I was sucked in almost immediately and couldn't stop listening. I want more Mountain Man! Audiobook provided for review by the narrator. Please find this complete review and many others at audiobookreviewer dot com
