Excellent. Read this before the HBO Doc, and the combination of the two is unforgettable.

Well The Zombie Survival Guide is an obvious one.

I also liked the Morningstar Saga by Z.A. Recht, although I've yet to read the final book of the trilogy.

Probably read more print. But still, I'm the odd bird who prefers to listen to books rather than music when driving/running/cycling/walking and even gaming.
I was listening to Podcasts on my work commute. Got a bit tired of that format, and moved on to Audible a month or two ago. I started with WWZ and liked it quite a bit. Then I bought a 3 pack of Michael Connolly's Harry Bosch series that was enjoyable. Most recently, I've been listening to Stephen King's 11/22/63. I just finished tonight; what a journey and I liked the ending. I'm looking for my next listen, to begin tomorrow morning. I have 4 credits burning a hole in my pocket. Several books in my wish list : The Passage, Pillars of the Earth, and Killing Floor (1st Jack Reacher).

Reading Sophie's Choice by William Styron. Taking me forever, but I'm enjoying it.

My job changed a few months ago and I find myself driving about 500 miles a week, (in town driving btw). I recently finished 11-22-63. It was a great listen/read. I Highly reccommend you listen to The Stand, (unabridged) or IT.
The narrators suck you into the story. I also listened to "The Dome." Good book, disappointing ending.

I bought The Talisman and found it difficult to get into but it was a good story.
I'm currently listening to Insomnia. My main complaint with it is that they play music during certain moments. Lame music... VERY LAME MUSIC...

Anyone have any suggestions? I was thinking about WWZ.

I just finished Johnny Ramone's story of the Ramones (Commando) and I'm currently reading Dee Dee Ramone's story of the Ramones (Lobotomy).

It's interesting to see the difference in their perspectives and how much inner turmoil there was in the Ramones "family". Johnny was a no-hard-drug, business-oriented, Limbaugh-and-baseball-loving, image-conscious guy who was driven by a desire to build up a retirement nest egg. Dee Dee was a musically-prolific, drug-and-drink-abusing, rebellious, troubled guy who was driven by a need to make music and an all too frequent need to score his next hit. Neither book is a threat to win an award, but the two together are an interesting contrast that's interesting to a Ramones fan like myself.

If you like The Stand, and King in general, you should listen to the Dark Tower series. First book is kind of hard to get through (it was written in the 70's), but its short. After that, it gets to be an amazing series.

Also, WWZ is amazing. I know I'm going to get shit for it, but the Harry Potter series is really well done too, make sure you listen to it done by Stephen Fry though.


I'm looking for suggestions along the Game of Thrones, or Stephen King novels, Dean Koontz. Basically scifi/fantasy, zombies, or just generally a good story. Sorry, I did not read all 11 pages of this thread. I also want them to be audio books. Driving to Denver, and need something to listen to.

I'm reading Encounter, by Milan Kundera. It's a collection of essays. It's good. He has a very wry sense of humor that I like.

Finished The World Made Straight by Ron Rash which was pretty danged good if you like rural Applachian tales in the vein of Winter's Bone.

Also read For the Win by Cory Doctorow. Excellent futuristic look dealing with unionization, MMORPG farmers, and other cyberpunk concerns. Really enjoyable. I ended up reading like 300 pages in a day and finishing the novel over Thanksgiving Break.
