Publisher's Summary

On June 21, 2020, civilization will fall and the dead will rise.

Northwest Indiana will become ground zero for the zombie plague. Within 24 hours, Chicago will be nothing more than a breeding ground for the undead. Some people will choose to fortify their homes while others flee to the woods when it becomes apparent that there's no end in sight to their hell on Earth. How will you survive the apocalypse?

    "just terrible"
    What would have made Dead Soil better?

    a plot. some action. some reason to keep listening.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Evan Harris?

    the narration was second rate but not bad.


    What character would you cut from Dead Soil?

    all of them. make it only about the two in the apartment.


    Any additional comments?

    End of the world and Sci Fi are my favorites with a lot of historical fiction added in

    Story
    "A disjointed collection of ill prepared snippets"
    Would you try another book from Alex Apostol and/or Evan Harris?

    Maybe in a decade as they develop their craft.


    Has Dead Soil turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I like the zombie genre. It is not really believable genre after all it is that zombie apocalypse. But there are some norms of human behavior like the laws of physics that cannot be ignored. The author seems to create situations out of thin air and dropped them into an story lone with mile wide gaps.



    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dead Soil?

    Start with the survivors whom are being tracked by a horde of zombies after surviving in the woods and winter of northern Indiana. They seek shelter in a retail ln store to allow the horde to pass. Surely they have learned the advantage of remaining in doors and quiet until the horde passes. Yet the author creates a conflict between the current leader and a former Marine Colonel because the leader wishes to not allow one of the group to hang outside for a smoke. I found myself shouting that of course a former Marine let alone a Marine colonel could appreciate the essential need for quiet. Certainly any group on the run for six months would understand that imperative.

    It is not just one incident but multiple times I could not square the actions of the characters to any coherent plot line. He just made up situations with far too many inconsistencies.

    Found myself frustrated by the glaring holes in the story.
