Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Original Work, 2013

Six months ago, the world ended. The Baugh Contagion swept across the planet. Its victims were left twitching, adrenalized cannibals that quickly became know as Junkies. Civilization crumbled as people created isolated safe havens to hide from the infected... and the possibly infected. Now, as society nears a tipping point, lives will intersect and intertwine across two days in a desolate city.

The Junkie Quatrain is four tales of survival, and four types of post-apocalypse story, because the end of the world means different things for different people. Loss. Opportunity. Hope. Or maybe just another day on the job.

    "Super great!!!"
    Where does The Junkie Quatrain rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was good..too short, but awesome!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Junkie Quatrain?

    I liked how all the stories tied into each other...and how it explains more about the Ex series, which kicks butt!!!


    Which character – as performed by Christian Rummel and Therese Plummer – was your favorite?

    I like Holly....but its such a quick listen I really liked them all!!!


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

    its quick enough too...and really great!!


    Any additional comments?

    I love Peter Clines, and can not wait too read more of his stuff....I hope he gives us more soon...this was a quick little listen and I highly recommend it, especially if you love the EX series!!!!

    "Excellent!!"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I really love the way Peter Clines weaves the seemingly unrelated stories together. The 1st time it happened I was surprised and then I started looking forward to it.


    Which character – as performed by Christian Rummel and Therese Plummer – was your favorite?

    The doctor who is hired by Bradburry.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Each time the stories were woven together created a 'what if' moment for me. The story is told (and not told) in such a way as to leave some of it up to your own imagination and conclusions.

    "More please"

    I rarely read zombie books cause there about zombies. this one is not, its about people and how their lives inter lock. It's way too short but that works also .I,d like to hear a full account of the books situation especially in the style that this has been written. well done Peter Clines another grate listen.

    "Clever angles of views"

    This book looks at the same zombie situation from several different viewpoints. Interesting take on an over used subject.

    "Pretty good zombie stories"

    This is my 4th Peter Clines book. I have enjoyed his style and substance. This was another multi-perspective tales that tied together well. The last part was especially good. Worth a listen for sure if you like zombies or Peter Clines.

    "I'm hooked!"

    This was the first of Peter Clines' Zombie series that I listened to. I was definitely hooked from the beginning.

    The Junkie Quatrain is a series of short stories, but the stories & characters connect in the end.

    I especially liked how the characters are narrated by different people.

    Story
    "Good, but maybe wait for a sale?"

    Don't get me wrong the story is good, and I love Peter Clines, but the problem is that it is one short story ( like the beginning chapter or so of a novel) told in shorter stories in four points of view. I want to hear more of the story. Also, I have bought everything he has on Audible, and 2 of these shorter stories, the better ones actually, are included at the end of other works. So I think I would have been happier buying this if it was like, $5 or $6 as opposed to $11. Just sayin.
