Xom-B by Jeremy Robinson

Length: 11 hrs and 31 mins


Date Read: May 2014

Goodreads

Freeman is a genius with an uncommon mixture of memory, intelligence and creativity. He lives in a worldwide utopia, but it was not always so.  There was a time known as the Grind-when Freeman's people lived as slaves to another race referred to simply as "Master." They were property. But a civil rights movement emerged. Change seemed near, but the Masters refused to bend. Instead, they declared war. And lost. Now, the freed world is threatened by a virus, spread through bites, sweeping through the population. Those infected change--they are propelled to violence, driven to disperse the virus. Uniquely suited to respond to this new threat, Freeman searches for a cure, but instead finds the source--the Masters, intent on reclaiming the world.  Freeman must fight for his life, for his friends and for the truth, which is far more complex and dangerous than he ever imagined.

First Thought when Finished: Xom-B by Jeremy Robinson was a very interesting twist on the traditional Zombie story. I enjoyed it from beginning to end!

Story Thoughts: OMG! Seriously I was caught off guard by how much I enjoyed Xom-B (especially since I decided to give it a whirl because it seemed odd BUT I was prepared to be underwhelmed). It was odd, unique, fascinating, and clearly one of kind. This is a different twist on the zombie stories that we are used to hearing. It is also a story about humanity even though again in an odd and compelling way. This really was just a brilliant act of storytelling. The only little bit knocked off was that it was a little hard to grasp in the beginning but once the story hit it’s stride, it was hard to put down!

Character Thoughts: I loved Freeman. He made a great lead to experience this world through. He was new to everything too and in that essence we got to experience everything through his eyes, emotions, and thoughts. The other characters were fantastic also! Both the good guys and bad guys were engaging. I began to care for them all!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated by: R. C. Bray /Length: 11 hrs and 31 mins


I don’t think I have listened to a book narrated by R. C. Bray before but I thought he did a pretty good job. He was right on with Freeman’s voice and growth throughout the story. I wasn’t so much a fan for his female voices but they did grow on me through the story. Overall I would listen to a story narrated by him again!

Final Thought: Very Impressed!
