WORKS WELL WITH ZOMBIES. This is the resume of the last mailman on Earth. It is the near future, and the modern world we knew has been overrun and destroyed by reanimated corpses who hunt humans for food. Mankind has retreated to small pockets of civilization and practically surrendered to the walking dead. But one man routinely leaves behind the safety and comfort to find the people and things we've long abandoned. He battles the elements. He battles his own brewing insanity. But mostly, he battles zombies.

The Last Mailman: Neither Rain, Nor Sleet, Nor Zombies

I chose The Last Mailman: Neither Rain, Nor Sleet, Nor Zombies because it was another promising book about zombies. I love zombie books; they tend to be so entertaining. It also has the added intrigue of the thought-provoking title; I mean what do people need with a mailman if the world has been taken over by zombies?

In a world that has been overrun by zombies for the past 4 years, we’re introduced to DJ Haddox, the “mailman” of the survivor colony of New York. Haddox’s role as mailman is to travel the wastelands to determine what happened to the family and friends the survivors left behind, often times bringing back mementos from the family home. I was disappointed that he only carried out one of these missions. There are a few factual errors of details about weapons and such, which I was able to overlook.

Overall this is a fun story. Lots of action, many twist and turns, lots of interesting characters and situations. I absolutely hated the ending, because to me it seems all gum drops and puppy dogs, happy go lucky ending that zombie books shouldn’t have.

Narrator Review

I did not care for Marc Vietor’s narration. The rasp of his soft spoken voice made me think that all of the characters were 60 year old smoking men, or a variation there of. While I think he did well for the main character, DJ, but often had trouble figuring out who was speaking.

Publishers Summary

Four-year degree in business.Trained in hand-to-hand combat. Works well with zombies. This is the resume of the last mailman on Earth.

It is the near future, and the modern world we knew has been overrun and destroyed by reanimated corpses who hunt humans for food. Mankind has retreated to small pockets of civilization and practically surrendered to these walking dead. But one man routinely leaves behind the safety and comfort of his home in this new world in order to find the people and things we’ve long abandoned. He battles the elements. He battles his own brewing insanity. But mostly, he battles zombies. This is his story.
