A fun zombie read full of action, interesting characters and an interesting plot line. The book is the first in a series but does a good job of wrapping up the story so it doesn’t make you feel like you have to keep going, but you’ll want to. The main character Zach is a good guy, and definitely wise beyond his young years. The story follows the first year after the zombie apocalypse which has him running in an out of trouble. It doesn’t add anything to the genre but if you’re looking for a good zombie tale I would recommend “Zombie Rules”.
If you know anything about me an my tastes in audiobooks. You know that I love new zombie stories, especially from authors I know nothing about. So, naturally, I jumped at the chance to listen to Zombie Rules. I also find it very difficult to go into an known zombie story with expectations. I am going to do my best to leave those by the wayside. So I can really get into the story and not judge it versus all the other stories I have heard already. Zombie Rules starts off before the zombie apocalypse starts. Painting a vivid picture of who the survivors will be and how they got to where they are. Then people everywhere start getting sick. I know that this is a pretty typical beginning to the apocalypse and I am not even sure how many other directions you could successfully go in. We end up with Rick, a Vietnam vet who just happens to be a prepper. He takes this kid Zach under his wing and teaches him everything he knows about survival, security, guns, farming, all the essential prepper skills. From here begins the madness, adventure, heartache, love, survival and friendship. Zach is a very smart kid who starts to notice that the zombies exist and die by particular rules. I won’t list them here but this knowledge keeps him and is group alive and even surprises the military folks they run across. Zombie Rules is pretty tame when it comes to violence and gore. Where David Achord was really successful was with the characters. Just enough development to get you interested in their well being, but not so much that you get board with it. There were points where I got very upset when the story went certain ways, but I won’t tell you what. I am looking forward to the next book in the series and already have it queued up for a listen. This was my first time listening to Graham Halstead. I have to say that he was able to bring a youthful voice to this tale. Great characterizations and a charge ahead pace that I think most people would be very happy with. I am looking forward to more performances by Halstead.
