The author spends much time in the Caribbean diving & his experiences inform his graphic depictions of places in his murder mysteries. This is the second book by Sullivan I’ve read, and third in the series. This time it’s set in Belize, with vivid description of the country. Not as good as the first, I was confused as to why the villain targeted the main characters so ruthlessly. The logic didn’t quite follow for me. Other than that, it was an enjoyable read with likeable characters. I especially was attuned to his description of Mennonites, having just read Menno Moto & feeling pretty well-versed about its culture (& coincidentally I learned on the History channel tonight that Kraft—the inventor of American cheese—was Mennonite). The author’s description felt authentic & in his afterword he says he has relatives who are Mennonite. I plan to read more in this series.… (lisätietoja)

Boone is a dive master at a scuba shop in Bonaire in the Dutch Antilles. While diving, he spies a submarine built by a Venezuela drug cartel but hijacked by terrorists. Along with dive customers who happen to be well connected with the appropriate branches of government, he finds he is the only one who can stop the sub from blowing up cruise ships anchoring in a Caribbean island port. The author is an actor who turned writer focused on his favorite childhood vacations, the Caribbean, and his love of scuba diving. On the one hand, the level of detail actually makes this far-fetched plot very realistic. On the other, it makes for a slow start and gets a bit tedious. I enjoyed the book and its descriptions of the islands. I’d be happy to read the next in the series.… (lisätietoja)

ZOMBIE BIGFOOT isn't trying to disguise itself as literary fiction as you can tell by the title. What it promises with that shadowy cover and its campy title is creature-feature fun and it delivers that in spades!

Sarah, a woman whose father spent a good deal of his life trying to prove that the Sasquatch exists, is now spending her time trying to do the same. Her dad did eventually meet a member of the Bigfoot family when he was injured during one of his solo expeditions. Unfortunately, although he survived his injury with a Bigfoot's help, he returned to civilization with no real proof of it, and he became the object of scorn among his peers. Sarah has now returned to the area where her father documented his encounter with a team of her own and all of the latest technology to capture any discoveries they might find. Will they finally find evidence that Bigfoot actually exists? You will have to read this to find out!

I expected this book to be more fluffy than it actually was, and that was a pleasant surprise. With a cast of characters that ranged from a television survivalist, a billionaire explorer, a Shwarzenegger-like body guard and a native American tracker/guide-there were plenty of personalities and events to keep the reader occupied.

Even though the beginning got off to a bit of a slow start, it felt like the author began to really hit his stride once the action got going. Somehow it seemed to come through that he was having a lot of fun and that point is where the reader started having fun too.

Sprinkled with humor throughout, (like referencing those hilarious beef jerky commercials), ZOMBIE BIGFOOT doesn't take itself too seriously, while delivering more than what this reader expected from your average tale of this nature.

Recommended for fans of creature-features!

Note: While this is Book 2 in the series, it works fine as a stand alone novel.

I really enjoyed Book 1 in this series and Book 2 is just as good, or even a smidge better. Emily and Boone have a solid friendship that serves as a great base for their developing romance. That makes them a great team for this adventure! It’s really the mystery and adventure that keeps me interested in these books. The setting is exotic and lush, a unique place for murder, deceit, and occasional mayhem. All around, it’s a great combo that had me listening to this story in one long go. I didn’t want to put it down!

Boone does seem to be developing a special ability, a kind of spidey sense when it comes to the bad guys. At first, this was believable because all of us take in more info than we’re a aware of and that can lead to hunches. However, later in the story it becomes more a plot crutch to keep things moving along. Boone is interesting enough on his own that he doesn’t need any quasi-mystical abilities. That’s a really tiny complaint for a story that kept me so thoroughly entertained.

Emily’s sense of humor is a bit like my own and I loved how she used it to keep her own spirits up during the direst moments. That scene where she’s singing Old MacDonald Had A Farm was great. Emily is a great character because she’s not some insta-warrior nor is she a maiden in distress. She’s practical and fights when she has to but isn’t above getting an assist from Boone when the situation warrants it.

There’s some new characters introduced (which makes sense since they switched islands from Book 1). This includes a woman who wants a sparring partner and Boone can keep up. At first I was worried that the author was setting up a love triangle, but thankfully that isn’t so. Yay! It’s really good because I like the addition of this new character and appreciate the useful things she taught Emily.

All around, it was a fast-paced bit of action goodness. Looking forward to the next book! 5/5 stars.

The Narration: Nick Sullivan narrates his own book and he does a really good job of it. Emily still sounds more Australian than English at times but not as much as she did in Book 1. But I’m fine picturing her as Australian. Sullivan has unique voices for all the characters and he does a variety of Caribbean accents as the story dictates. His female voices are believable. All around, it’s a really good performance. There are no technical issues with the recording. 4.75/5 stars.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Nick Sullivan. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
