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.

    Story
    "4 Short Stories, I wish were longer"
    Would you listen to The Junkie Quatrain again? Why?

    Yes. To get more detail. It moves fast, and certain things I may have overlooked. It was a fun, fast read.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't want to give out spoilers


    Any additional comments?

    This is 4 short stories that overlap in some way. I was actually surprised, and a little upset when the first story ended so soon. The characters in the following stories all interact in some way with each other, but I was hoping for some sort of resolve.
    The stories pace, and flow worked very well, but even after it was over, I wanted more. Many questions are unanswered, and there is no real resolve at the end. It's a bunch of stuff that happens in one day to different people.
    If you think of Pulp Fiction..... it's like that,..... but with Zombies (the 28 days later kind).
    They really should change the title, I would have never bought this if I had not read another Peter Cliens book, and part of this book was attached at the end, as a sample.

    "Great, quick listen!"

    I really enjoyed these quick stories. I love this genre, and so when I saw that there was this compact little novel that had 4 short stories in it, I jumped at the chance to check it out! Some of the stories were better than others, of course, but I enjoyed them all! Will listen again!

    "Great, down and dirty zombie story quickie"

    Peter Clines definitely has a knack for suspenseful story telling. Enjoyed the interweaving of the different characters and story lines in this one. Plausible details plus well-constructed writing make this a really good listen.

    "Not a good value"

    The stories are fine short stories in the same line, but it's so short for the cost. Plus, one of the stories is included in the Ex-Soldiers book.
    Fine if it were 1/2 the price.

    "Excellent but way too short."

    I was completely captured by this book and left wanting more. The storyline and unusual format were interesting and made it hard to put down. I just didn't realize it was a short book and then it was over...

    Story
    "Felt incomplete"

    As gifted an author Peter Clines is, I have to say that I did not enjoy this. Not because it wasn't a quality performance of a brilliant concept, it was exactly that. Instead because it was IMMENSELY UNSATISFYING! The disappointment is only accentuated by the high standard of everything else. After being introduced to this intriguing world and cast of interesting characters, it feels like the first 4 chapters of a bigger story and the idea of not getting the conclusion is simply upsetting.
