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.

    Story
    "Standard Zombie Fare. With a bit of splash."

    This book ( first in I believe 4 zombie novels) was pretty good and worth the credit or price. If there is a good ( even some not so good zombie novels) out there I believe I have read them. I have been a zombie fan since I was 8 and watched Romero's "Night of the Living Dead". So that will give you an idea on my reviews of Zombie novels. 👍This novel starts our pretty innocent as most do. The family camping trip to Alaska, small vignettes of what will become other major characters daily lives, etc. Then it pretty much explodes and is a back to back gore funfest from there. The premise of the outbreak is a bit confusing so I'm hoping to find out more about that in later novels. Additionally there are unanswered questions about characters listed at the beginning of the novel. Overall I enjoyed the storyline & character development. I'll be purchasing the next audiobook in the series.

    Story
    "Couldn't Get Into It"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not for me just because I couldn't get into it like other series out there. Either the plot wasn't as gripping or the characters need to be developed more. It's easy to get lost on which character is speaking and who they are


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sean Schubert again?

    I might give this book another shot. If I still couldn't get into it then no.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    It moved a bit slow. Bumped it up to 1.5x and it was fine.


    Do you think Infection: Alaskan Undead Apocalypse needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Didn't make it to the end so I'm not sure.


    Any additional comments?

    I could have been distracted the first few times I listened but this genre has so many great series already, if you're plot isn't gripping and you can't get invested in the characters it turns into fodder. I love this genre so maybe I'm a bit critical but I'd listen to The Remaining, Morningstar, or Zombie Fallout before purchasing this story. I'll try it again and amend my review if my stance changes.

    "Do Your Research!"
    Any additional comments?

    Do some research on the proper pronunciation of unfamiliar locations! I'm a live long Alaskan and can only assume that the narrator was intentionally trying to mispronounce things as he did on nearly every location name.

    "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.

    Story
    "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!
