    Throughout history there have been several thousand different strains of influenza. Each year hundreds are active. Chances are, this year, you will catch one of those strains. You will cough, sneeze, and your body will ache. Without a second thought, you'll take a double dose of green liquid, go to bed, and swear you'll feel better in the morning. Not this time. Mutated and with a vengeance, the Spanish Flu returns. In a world blackened with plague, a glimmer of light exists in the small town of Lodi, Ohio.

    Maria says: "It was okay. Not my favorite."
    "Swifty much?"

    What disappointed you about The Flu?

    This writer has a tin ear for dialogue. Really, it's kind of painful. And hello? If the speaker is petulant, I don't need the writer to point it out to me. The swifties came so fast and thick, it almost seemed like a joke.


    Any additional comments?

    Aaargh, the voices! Look, it's great when a narrator can develop voices for individual characters, but it's not necessary, and skipping it is better than doing it badly.
