Publisher's Summary

Australia...a huge, sprawling land filled with danger...but nothing as dangerous as this... Deep beneath defense headquarters in the Australian Capital Territory, the last ranking Army chief considers the collapse of his country, and the contingency plan to win it back. One hundred and fifty miles away, five friends returning from a month-long camping trip slowly discover that the world has turned horribly wrong, that a virus has ravaged the entire east coast of Australia.
The dead now walk the land, seeking flesh and blood. Armed with dwindling ammunition, the friends must overcome their differences, utilize their individual skills, and face horrors they never imagined...but not all zombies are the same... What will they find if they can all reach their hometown? Will their families or friends have survived? What twists and turns will the group encounter, and what life-threatening decisions will they face? Their personalities and agendas will conflict, as each fights for their place in this new world, a world unlike anything they could have imagined...

Australian Zombie Story! meh

What disappointed you about Aftermath?

The style of writing which was very much, 'she said', 'he said'. The Australian male characters seemed more like teenage girls. Too much of will you be my boyfriend/girlfriend? Made me think the author was a teenager (he or she might be and I would encourage them to keep going). I like to think I am just not the market the author was after! But hey! It is a zombie story placed in Australia!

Why, if the story is based in Australia why does the narrator use miles instead of kilometres?

What was most disappointing about Owen Lucas Baillie’s story?

The style of writing. The character development. The ending

Would you be willing to try another one of Tim Budas’s performances?


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Aftermath?

Anything to do with the tangled love interest of the group

Any additional comments?

Anyone know any good end of the world stories with an aussie perspective?

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If I cared about any of the characters. I just didnt, they kept making the same mistakes over and over.

Has Aftermath turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, I know there are good ones. I just have to find them

What didn’t you like about Tim Budas’s performance?

His performance wasn't awful, but the source material was so bad it was hard to like anything about the book.

What character would you cut from Aftermath?

Unfortunately most of the women, and that's the whole problem! They we're all such weak characters, needing the men to come save them. One of them was a flipping DOCTOR!!! She should have taken control of the situation and been a huge asset to the team. But no, the writer demeaned her character and gave her PTSD for some unknown reason. Probably to make the men feel more superior.

Any additional comments?

Don't waste your money or credit and pick up WWZ, The Remaining, or the Rot & Ruin series.
