omg! i feel exhausted after listening
as the story opens ken and his group of survivors are going up in the elevator of his wife's building. they discover that some of the infected are acting differently. kind of like the aliens in the alien movies, these infected are secreting something from their mouths, building cocoon-like structures and webbing. the infected let ken and his group just pass on by as they wander around, which i kinda found weird. but ok, i'll buy it for now. ken finds his wife and 2 children in a drugged state, encased in webbing. it's not until they try to free ken's family that those infected get agitated. once ken's family is free, they flee the building across a giant crane that has fallen between the 2 buildings. and this is where things start to get even weirder and more unbelievable.there are like thousands or even tens of thousands of infected chasing them. either they are able to elude them or the author forgot just how many were chasing them.the story devolves into 2 really long action scenes, where ken and company are chased and stalked by different kinds of infected.
from the story, i know we're like 4 hours into the infection, but i just don't know how these people were able to keep their energy up enough to perform these feats- crossing a huge crane and then shimmying down an elevator shaft infested with another type of infected. the believability went out the window for me. i just don't see how the infected have evolved into so many varying types so quickly after just a few hours.
initially, i was intrigued by the characters, but there's just no time to develop them b/c they're always running and fighting for their lives!
the story ends in another cliffhanger, and i was left thinking how much more can these characters take?
overall, i was disappointed by the direction the story took. the action was so frenetic and the tension was so high that i actually felt exhausted after listening to this short story. it's a frustrating listen, and i can't recommend it. download at your own risk!
