Review: Rot and Ruin


Rot and Ruin
Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Maberry

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



It's finally over. That felt like the longest audiobook I've ever listened to.

It was actually a decent, if slowly paced story. It was like the zombie book with the second most zzzzzzz's that I've read. (See Boneshaker). I did enjoy the post apocalyptic world Maberry set up and the characters. It just seemed to take a long time to get anywhere.

That's the book. Now for the audio. The reader wasn't bad or difficult to listen to, but he talked so slowly I thought I would be a shambling corpse before he finished. And then...

There was a chapter where a few of the teenage boys got together and we're talking about their friend that was a girl. We'll, as teen boys will do, the convo soon drifted to her boobs. This reader. Through that part, he sounded just like Butt-Head.

From that point on, I could not get that out of my head. Huh huh huh uh huh huh. He said "boobs". Huh huh uh huh.

Fuck.
