    i wouldn't say wildly overrated, but i think it is a little over hyped. i enjoyed it for the most part, but it wasn't as good as i expected.

    doom. seriously read them and your jaw will drop. Besides having stilted dialogue, there's nasty pedo overtones in the latter books and they delve into the realm of complete nonsense.

    Reaper - the very last book was the worst. Remember the 14 year old girl that Fly had a kinda sorta thing for/with? Well, the writer goes into insane detail about her breasts when Fly is looking at her in cryogenic freeze. I was entirely creeped out by the whole thing, to the point where it's suck with me like 15+ years later lol

    Cell.
    When I heard King was doing zombies I almost died of zombie bliss... And then it came out.....Worse disappointment in 400 pages.

    Cell could have been a lot better. In typical King fashion, the book really petered out in its third act and the end was just atrocious. But darned if the first half of the book didn't have me gripping my seat.

    I used to listen to the audio book version while driving to shoots and I had gotten so hooked that I would leave 30 minutes earlier and just sit in my car listening to it.

    I couldn't even finish World War Z. It just got so repetitive. Several times I thought I was reading that same chapter over and over again.

    I'm wondering if it could be that World War Z is just better in audiobook form. The abridged audiobook was in a radio drama format and it was absolutely amazing! Alan Alda, Mark Hamill and a bunch of other very incredible actors. I've never actually tried reading the book, but I'm willing to bet that nothing will hold a candle to the audiobook version!

    The audio-book of WWZ is an incredible piece of fine audio-art ...
    I think WWZ - either you like it or you hate it. It is very "documentary style", thus I can imagine that people may not like it. It is not the classic story around a bunch of heroes or survivors telling "their" story; it is just a collection of many small bits and pieces describing the start, evolution and ending of the zombie-apocalypse from many different perspectives ... Therefore you don't have the climax-scheme or whatnot ... Just consider WA not being told around Michael and friends, but WA being told in a way that each chapter would be all about one specific and different journal ...
    Anyway: WWZ - I enjoyed them both, and I am not so surprised that Paramount and Brad Pitt have so much trouble making the movie, because WWZ is not about one story, but about many small ones ...

    Zombie Story:
    - raises the acceptance of killing humans in huge numbers,
    - reveals everything bad and and even worse about human behaviour and psychology,
    - is fun.
