As a goodreads friend recently told me, "books like these are junk food for the mind". I couldn't agree more or make a better statement. I gobbled this one up and then licked my fingers. If you love survival horror, I think you may love this novel.

If Jack Burton, the character played by Kurt Russell in the 80s classic Big Trouble in Little China wrote a zombie survival story, I think it would sound a lot like this one.
I flew into Atlanta because I've got a big-deal job.
I rescue a naked hottie outside my hotel from red-eyed weirdo zombies.
Oh yeah, I used to be a green beret.
I continue to save her life and she continues to find ways to stay in a state of near total undress.
But I'm married. The tension!
This book is the Mary Sue-iest book that ever Mary Sue-d. The main character is the POV for most of the book and for the most part, can do no wrong. Even when wrong is done unto him, the naked hottie he's picked up also happens to be a med student. Mary Sue, party of two.
Also, the timeline of the book is only a couple days. In that span of time, the ne'er-do-well jerks of the world all decide to band together into an apparent brotherhood of evil somehow because the hero and naked friend meet a lot of coordinated resistance to their survival all along the way. How could that be? Two days into the zombie apocalypse, nobody knows who is going to be immune to the plague and these groups are coordinating ambushes and speedboat attacks?
I've read a lot of different zombie fiction and this one doesn't stand out as anything worth continuing. Sorry.

Where does Voodoo Plague rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I had this book in the back burner of my wish list after tidying up. Never heard of the author before, but since Mr Jeffrey Kafer is doing the audio i figured 'What the heck'
This book is blooming fantastic. It's not a brainless zombie eat people fall over and scream book.
Action, Tension, Guns, Crow bars and a dog (of course) and a voice that would melt chocolate in the arctic.
What other book might you compare Voodoo Plague to, and why?
I want the whole darn series. All 6 of the books
What the heck audible! Why have just one book of a series dangling out for all the world to see and none of the others?
It makes no sense and it totally blows.
What does Jeffrey Kafer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
He has the voice that you gives the character a body and soul and i blooming fantastic at female voices.
His voice screams 'Bare chested action, adventure and blood'
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
We don't leave no one behind
Any additional comments?
Audible! for the love of wine and cake!
Put the rest of the series back on the site for download. The action has just started and the book just leaves you hanging in permanent suspense.
Don't make me come to your offices and 'Twerk'.....
