Summary

It begins in a small Southwestern town. Then, it spreads. Across the country, a series of strange deaths have overtaken the living. And a stranger compulsion has overtaken the dead. 

In a travesty of life, they drift with bizarre purpose toward an unknown destination. The walkers have become an obsession for investigator Miles Huerdeen. His father is one of them. Now lured into the shadow of the restless dead, Miles is a step closer to a secret as old as time - to a reality as dark as hell. For, Miles is following them into the deep end of an unfathomable nightmare.

Narration of female characters jarring.

Good enough sorry from an author I like but the male narrators female characters were screeching or whining and that just got annoying so I have up.

Not up to my expectations of Bentley Little

I have been a long-time Bentley Little fan and usually I like his stories but this one was TERRIBLE! It had very little continuity or explanation of the what & why of "The Walking" . The story seemed to end abruptly as if he was bored with writing it and didn't know exactly how to write the ending. This was a waste of the couple of weeks of time it took me to listen to this on my commutes to and from work.

First time I’ve returned an audiobook to Audible

I’ve been a member since early 2000s and this is a first. I waded through a couple of hours but this book was so disappointing I returned it so I could get another title. It opens with an interesting teaser about a deceased man walking into a pond and years later he’s still there pacing around under the surface. Then it goes nowhere. I got tired of waiting for something interesting to happen but it didn’t. Had I been reading this book, I would have hurled it across the room. Figuratively speaking, I just did. I “returned” it.

Hold on for the ride

This story was wonderfully told. The descriptive writing had me dreaming about the times and places in the story line. The narrator became the voice in my dreams. my only wish would be for a stronger ending. so much story yet to tell!
