The Junkie Quatrain by Peter Clines narrated by Christian Rummel and Therese Plummer. I just listened to this one last night in one sitting. I have really enjoyed branching out into the post apocalyptic zombie books lately. That being said there are good ones and bad ones. This book was really good. I would love to see it turned into a series or at least a full length novel. The narration is great and the stories flow and intertwine easily. This is one of the books that leaves you wanting more. I would recommend it to anyone looking for an entertaining quick read.

A series of four short stories “The Junkie Quatrain” which takes place in Clines’ “Ex-Hero” world. Although it is not tied into those stories it helps with building a more accurate picture of the world and is a good jumping off point if you’re not sure you want to start that series. The stories have a good amount of zombies and are well written, fun and interesting.

Got it for $1.95 during a deal, if its still on, get it. At its regular price I'd still get it, now that I know how good it is.
As others have said, the stories cross paths, and because of that, it felt line a real book. So you feel like its a real book until the end when it, well, just ends when you thought it should go back to one of the other stories. Except they played music so you knew it wasn't coming.
I wish all books had both male and female narrators!
The zombies are more of the infected kind, not completely dumb and at least try to run.
Perked my interest in Peters other books, Ex-Heroes series which I have previously thought completely "no".
I really love the way Peter Clines weaves the seemingly unrelated stories together. The 1st time it happened I was surprised and then I started looking forward to it.
The doctor who is hired by Bradburry.
Each time the stories were woven together created a 'what if' moment for me. The story is told (and not told) in such a way as to leave some of it up to your own imagination and conclusions.
I rarely read zombie books cause there about zombies. this one is not, its about people and how their lives inter lock. It's way too short but that works also .I,d like to hear a full account of the books situation especially in the style that this has been written. well done Peter Clines another grate listen.
This book looks at the same zombie situation from several different viewpoints. Interesting take on an over used subject.
Avid Amazon fan!
This is my 4th Peter Clines book. I have enjoyed his style and substance. This was another multi-perspective tales that tied together well. The last part was especially good. Worth a listen for sure if you like zombies or Peter Clines.
This was the first of Peter Clines' Zombie series that I listened to. I was definitely hooked from the beginning.
The Junkie Quatrain is a series of short stories, but the stories & characters connect in the end.
I especially liked how the characters are narrated by different people.
Great story,great narration. I only wish this had been developed into a series. Peter CLines has done it again.
I listened to this quatrain in one day,i just couldn't put it down.
I liked the setting the reading and the range of peole who populate this world
every story had a little bit of a twist at the end.
the end of the world... which Quatrain is you...
Ex-heros starts you on this authors work read it all and hope for more.
