Publisher's Summary

There's a nasty flu going round. An epidemic, they call it. The posters say to cover your mouth when you sneeze, and throw away the tissue. But such simple measures won't stop this flu. Because when you catch this flu, armed police come and lock you in your house to die alone. When you catch this flu, it kills you in days. And two hours after it's killed you, your eyelids snap open again.... Flu is a pacey, terrifying, frighteningly real zombie horror story.

Okay, but disappointed

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I enjoyed the storyline, but the characters were left without any real definition. Hard to follow at times. But listened to the end.

What does Gerry O'Brien bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Annoying and uninteresting

The narrator has an annoying tone. Every new character has a higher pitched Irish voice which becomes grating. Little happens throughout the book due to the large amount of characters introduced. If you can get over the narrator's voice then all you are left with are a load of irritating characters that hold little connection to the reader.

Poorly written, re-hashed rubbish

I love a good zombie yarn, but this neither has anything new, nor does it do the old routines well. It plods through an unengaging setup, into a directionless main plot utilising adverb, simile and cliché in repeating sequences. The reading is poor too, giving the exact opposite intonation than is described (if it says "he said, deadpan", then say it deadpan). Very disappointing.
