    Just listened to the first like 2 hours of it at work and id give it about a 7/10. I just got to the part where the lab people got turned. Its really interesting, Ill give it that. But it goes kind of fast I think and there is lots of information you need to pay attension to. Other then that im def gona keep listening to it at work. It is really entertaining.

    Especially the way that they defined the virus

    Just finished "The Infection". Awesome story. The nature of the zombies is different from "Tooth and Nail", in ways that make that aspect of the story a lot more like "We're Alive" (k.e. mutants). I highly recommend it.

    Craig Dilouie has a new book that came out yesterday. It's called "The Killing Floor" and is a follow up to "The Infection". It's supposed to take up where The Infection left off, with the US military absorbing reinforcements coming home from the Middle East and counter-attacking to re-take areas lost to the infection. I just downloaded the Kindle edition and expect to lose myself in it starting this evening.

    I have read all three of his books in the last week. I thought they were all pretty good. Characters were likable and developed well. I had a few problems with minor details, the guy doesn't seem to know much about certain military lingo and I laughed at a part that was in Infection (I think it was infection, I read all of them one after another so I might be confused) where he says the lady cop, Wendy, flipped the safety on her Glock to fire. I've own many Glocks and have never seen one with an external safety because they don't exist.

    To his credit, diLouie's military lingo got better from book to book (crew served machineguns went from being 30 cals in Tooth and Nail to M-240 Bravos in The Killing Floor). The Glock thing never fails to amuse me too. You see it all the time on TV, where they seem to love adding that clicking noise of a (non-existent) mechanical safety being disengaged. I assume that's the work of editors and producers who just love their gun noises!
