Audible Editor Reviews

Nature is the biggest threat to the people of Anchorage until they have to face the very unnatural, in the initial work of Sean Schubert’s Alaskan Undead series.

Daniel May performs the gritty, disturbing, action-packed tale that gnaws at something primeval within us all. Disturbing descriptions interweave with hope and desperate attempts to survive against a plague brought to the northern civilization on the edge by boys on a camping trip and their discovery of what appears to be a dead body slowly thawing in a melting glacier.

Publisher's Summary

Anchorage, Alaska: gateway to serene wilderness of The Last Frontier. No stranger to struggle, the city on the edge of the world is about to become even more isolated.

When a plague strikes, Anchorage becomes a deadly trap for its citizens. The only two land routes out of the city are cut, forcing people to fight or die as the infection spreads. Danny and Jules, just children, witness the beginning stages of the pestilence. Neil watches helplessly from his office cubicle as Midtown is ravaged. Dr. Caldwell attempts to flee the madness of Providence Hospital, the epicenter of the outbreak. The lives and survival of these few become intertwined in the aftermath of the onslaught. Coming together as strangers, they begin to form stronger bonds--even as hope slips away and they realize there may be no rescue coming.

    "Average+. I got it only because of the narrator"

    Zombies!!!!
    One of the greatest fashion trends of recent years.
    Nothing original in the plot, one more deadly virus which revives after person dies.

    We follow a batch of survivors as usual
    In this kind of novels,we usually get:
    1.Someone smart
    2.Someone with medical skills
    3.Someone romantic
    4.Someone whith predisposition towards antisocial or psychotic behaviour
    5.And of course we get someone with hero complex

    add a couple of kids and a few pet animals into the mix kill someone along the way and you have a novel.
    And dont forget to make characters do many stupid things.
    And despite the standart formula for such novels, there are a few intersting characters, but I doubt I will buy the next book in the series.

    "Please do your homework!!"
    Would you listen to Infection: Alaskan Undead Apocalypse again? Why?

    Yes I would; it's a good story. That said, it's very disappointing and distracting when the narrator mispronounces several of the street and location names in Anchorage and the surrounding area. It would take a 15 minute phone call to straighten him out. I don't know if the author ever came to Anchorage, but the narrator sure hasn't!

    Story
    "Run of the Mill Zombie Book"

    Infection is your run of the mill Zombie book. It has a lot of flesh tearing action, but doesn’t add anything to the genre or some great character to separate itself from other zombie books. Most of the characters are pretty quick to realize what is happening which is the only way they survive, but there is nothing that draws you to these people and many of them aren’t likable. Finally the book doesn’t really resolve anything. It needs to be read as a series so you have to commit to more than one book. If you’re looking for another Zombie gore book stop here and get ready for a ride. If you’re looking for something more I would move on.

    The performance on this book was better than average, but not the best I've heard.

    "REALLY?"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The middle and the end. It started really interesting with how the infections started and spread through the hospital, but once it gets past there I was screaming... "really the dead are walking and you don't know the shoot for the head!!!!" No one figures it out but a 19yr old who plays video game. Oh and the infections takes hours on the first kid but by about the 10th person bitten its like 5 minutes with no explanation why that might happen-I have my thoughts but it would be nice get the authors ideas. I had to force myself to finish it.

    "Eskimos don't have a southern accent!"
    If you could sum up Infection: Alaskan Undead Apocalypse in three words, what would they be?

    Great zombie story!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I live just a block from "ground zero" in the story. The author accurately describes Anchorage in detail (although the Knik Arm Bridge doesn't yet exist).


    Would you be willing to try another one of Daniel May’s performances?

    I was not happy that he mispronounced several important Alaskan names, and at times his delivery was a bit mechanical. Perhaps Oliver. Wyman would be a better choice for a. Sequel.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, mainly because it was about my home town!


    Any additional comments?

    Y'upik Eskimos do not speak witha southern accent! If there is a sequel, I suggest that the narrator familiarize himself with a Bethel accent. In fact, none of us, not even Sarah Palin!!! speaks with a southern accent! It was grating to hear two characters from anchorage speak with one!

    What disappointed you about Infection: Alaskan Undead Apocalypse?

    Lack of story development. Seems like the author was just following a formula and he rushed as he did it.

    "Boring...."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I enjoy a good zombie apocalypse but this isn't one of them. The story is slow with boring characters. I kept waiting for something exciting to happen & then it was just over. Don't waste your credits.

    "Chilling Tundra Chiller Sets Stage"

    Never judge a book by its cover... Or unimaginative title. I am pleased to say that the title is the biggest grievance I have with the book. The title put me off as so trite that I doubted the substance of the book. I was wrong!

    The novel addresses the outbreak moments of a zombie apocalypse, setting the stage for sequels. Schubert does this with finesse and gives enough science to allow those who care to nit-pick to have the bread crumbs to get there on their own, but not so many as to allow those who have medical backgrounds to begin chirping over inconsistencies. Masterfully done. His treatment of the rest of the subject matter is equally masterful.

    Character development is okay, sometimes contrived; however, forgivable due to the tense nature of the predicament the characters all find themselves in. The action is well paced. I have purchased the sequel. Happy reading.
