For Cade Grayson, husband, father, and former Delta Force operator, that one warm sunny Saturday in July - to be labeled Z-Day by some anonymous person probably long dead - began like all the others before and none since.
With his daughter, Raven, and wife, Brook, away visiting her parents in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Cade hopes his immediate future holds nothing but an easy chair, Mariners on the tube, and paring down a honey-do list a mile long. But those hopes were quickly dashed and his life forever changed when news broke of a clash in downtown Portland between soldiers from the Oregon National Guard and hundreds of anarchist protesters suddenly turned violent and, by one anchor's account, blood-thirsty and cannibalistic.
As the first waves of injured bystanders, guardsmen, and rioters arrived at hospitals, it became apparent that a deadly new disease had been unleashed on the population. Whether the virus was naturally occurring or an escaped lab experiment, Cade hadn't a clue and wasn't especially concerned until he learned of its unprecedented virulence, unusual method of transference, and the fact that, according to the news, it brought the newly dead back to life, semi-mindless, and with an insatiable desire to feed on the flesh of the living.
Armed with this new information and now seeing the bigger cities such as Washington, D.C., New York, and Los Angeles rocked by the rapidly spreading scourge, Cade ignores the volley of contradictory edicts drawn up by the White House and set into motion by FEMA and DHS, dusts off his tools of war, and loads his truck with supplies.
Unable to get ahold of Brook and Raven, and unwilling to leave them at the mercy of some distant politician's inability to hold the nation together, he begins an impossible 3,000-mile journey across a reeling United States with presumably millions of infected in his path and only one acceptable outcome: find Brook and Raven alive - or die trying.

Extremely poorly written
(Caution: one spoiler) I have to say that I have never ever listening to/reading such ridiculous writing. I really like the genre but I couldn‘t get past chapter 2 (so I have no idea how to judge the plot). See for yourself and cringe when you take in the preposterous reaction Cade shows when seeing his neighbor Ted canibalizing his own wife. And it goes on and on like this. Completely devoid of writing talent, in my view.
To make matters worse, the narrator reads the story like he was reading Little Red Riding Hood to five year olds. Again, no talent here, at least not for over age reading matter.
I‘m only surprised the reviews are so good. Maybe the story will pick up to make good for the deficiencies but I just couldn‘t read on. Sorry

couldn't finish it...
I love post apocalyptic books.... and I gave this one a shot but I just couldn't finish it I kept falling asleep... I usually listen to audio books when I get in bed but am often so hooked I have to pause it or close the audible app in order to get some sleep... but this one.... didn't keep me hooked enough to care so I kept falling asleep everytime I listened to it....
