Four individuals fight to survive as the zombie apocalypse crashes over the world in a wave of terror and destruction. Color, creed, and social standing mean nothing as the virus infects millions across the planet.
Sharon: a zoologist from Nebraska, USA, has worked with the virus, and has seen the effects on the human mind. She knows more about the virus than nearly anybody alive, and far more than she wants to. Gerry: from Ontario, Canada, he gets his first taste of the virus from inside a prison cell. Locked up after an anti-government riot, his prison guard transforms before his eyes into a flesh craving zombie. Lucia: a chemist from Pittsburgh, USA, flees from a furry convention dressed as a giant squirrel, and escapes from the city in a Fed-Ex van. She's a girl who knows when to run and when to fight. Paul: thinks he can sit out the apocalypse in his apartment block in Dublin, Ireland, until the virus comes to visit, bursting his bubble and leaving him with no choice but to face reality or perish.
All four begin perilous journeys in mind and body as they face daily trials to survive: Four threads, four different parts of the world, one apocalypse!

Zombie Stories are all looking for something extra
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
It would be a good introduction to the genre for someone who had never really read or listened to the genre before
What was one of the most memorable moments of Season of the Dead?
The start of the outbreak and the introduction of one of the two main characters is amusing and made me chuckle some what!
Which character – as performed by Meral Mathews – was your favorite?
Beyond any doubt the squirrel... yes I said squirrel! But the Irish chap was a close second
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Zombies versus the squirrel
Any additional comments?
It seems all zombie books are trying to outdo one another for the strange factor. Recently I read one with Nazi's, Rednecks, a family of Apes and now this a person dressed as a squirrel!

Ordinary citizens fight the apocalypse.
Four individual survivors of the zombie apocalypse tell their stories. Well-developed characters and plausible events caused me to give this story a 5-star rating. There was a slight problem with performance. The narrator was very good, but this book would have been better if done by multiple narrators. The story is told from the first-person viewpoints of four characters, two of whom are female. There should have been one narrator for each character, or at least one male and one female narrator for the male and female characters. That is why I did not give an overall 5-star rating.
