Audible Editor Reviews

What happens when a virus spreads with the simple ease of a conversation? And what if that virus takes over your body and sends you into an alternate world, one where the undead roam en masse looking for human flesh? Pontypool Changes Everything is a dark and sinister adventure from the mind of Tony Burgess that details just such a frightful journey. Performed by veteran narrator, Gary Dikeos, with a gripping authority, this audiobook will send shivers through listeners as they find themselves in the mysterious and terrifying tale of cannibalistic madness.

    Story
    "Don't waste your credits or time."

    I made the mistake of getting this book after seeing the movie "Pontypool." The story has an excellent premise: a virus transmitted through words. The execution, however, is unabashedly awful. I made it about three hours in before giving up entirely. The premise was the only thing that kept me going as long as I did.

    Looking back, the author really lost me when he wrote about a doe giving birth to thirty (seriously) fawns who then freeze to death, mired in a sea of afterbirth. The next morning, children were cheerfully playing hockey on the frozen afterbirth and fashioning grim pucks from the frozen animals. As if that wasn't bad enough, the real clincher for me was that this bizarre scene did not seem to advance the plot in any discernible way, unless the author was simply striving for absurdity (mission thoroughly accomplished) or he came back to it at some point after I stopped.

    I should have stopped after that scene, which was within the first half hour. But I kept going. I really tried to like this book, but I just couldn't. If you like authors who endlessly use ham-handed similes and metaphors to expound on the most trivial details, or books who are in the so-bad-it's-good category, check this out. Otherwise, Pontypool Changes Everything just proves that a good idea simply isn't enough.
