Publisher's Summary

There's a nasty flu going round. An epidemic, they call it. The posters say to cover your mouth when you sneeze, and throw away the tissue. But such simple measures won't stop this flu. Because when you catch this flu, armed police come and lock you in your house to die alone. When you catch this flu, it kills you in days. And when you catch this flu, two hours after it's killed you, your eyelids snap open again....
Flu is a pacey, terrifying, frighteningly real zombie horror story.
©2012 Wayne Simmons (P)2012 Tantor

zombie story?

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

not downloading it

What could Wayne Simmons have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

please don't write a zombie like book and have them as a background detail, like the lamp was on, oh there are flesh eating things in the hall, what's for dinner?

Would you be willing to try another one of Michael Kramer’s performances?

as long as it is not a zombie story

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

start middle and end

Any additional comments?

I would ask for a refund but I think that this author may need as much money as he can get to order Zombie fallout and find out what a zombie is before trying again.

Poorly Written

Would you try another book from Wayne Simmons and/or Michael Kramer?


What was most disappointing about Wayne Simmons’s story?

None of the characters were interesting or believable. He gave me no reason to care about any of them.

Which character – as performed by Michael Kramer – was your favorite?

I wanted them all to be eaten by the zombies in the end.

What character would you cut from Flu?

I stopped listening when I realized that I wanted all the characters to just die already. I was rooting for the zombies. Ugh.

Any additional comments?

The zombies-in-Ireland theme is pretty cool, but the execution was atrocious.
