Publisher's Summary

After ravenous corpses topple society and consume most of the world's population, freighter captain Henk Martigan is shocked to receive a distress call. Eighty survivors beg him to whisk them away to the relative safety of the South Pacific. Martigan wants to help, but to rescue anyone he must first pass through the nightmare backwater of the Curien island chain.

A power struggle is brewing in the Curiens. On one side, the billionaire inventor of the mind-control collar seeks to squeeze all the profit he can out of the apocalypse. Opposing him is the charismatic leader of a ghoul-worshipping cargo cult. When a lunatic warlord berths an aircraft carrier off the coast and stakes his own claim on the islands, the stage is set for a bloody showdown.

To save the remnants of humanity (and himself), Captain Martigan must defeat all three of his ruthless new foes and brave the gruesome horrors of...The Ghoul Archipelago.

    "Zombies"
    What did you like best about this story?

    The Ghoul Archipelago tells a story about the zombie apocalypse that occured in fictional islands in the South Pacific,. The story was a bit confusing at first, as I tried to adjust to the different points of view, but by the end I was quite invested and staying up late to find out what was going to happen. Very interesting plot.

    Story
    "a good zombie apocalypse tale"

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the narrator.

    I love a good zombie apocalypse, and this is a good one. The characters are well-drawn and the plot involves more than just the "run, scavenge and survive" present in all zombie tales. There's social, political, and religious commentary/snark. It is irreverent, crude and gory. I largely enjoyed the social, political, and religious commentary/snark, although some is bit stereotypical. The gore didn't bother me, but this book is probably not for the really squeamish. I did find a few of the sexual depictions verged on offensive, particularly those involving Rand and his VR collar. Definitely written from a male point of view, but luckily these scenes weren't too prevalent or lengthy. The presence of strong female characters with agency redeemed the author.

    There is a large cast of characters. The novel jumps around from character group to character group. All interact in the end, but you do need to pay attention to keep track of them all and follow the action, particularly in the beginning when the jumps can be a little confusing.

    The narration is very well-done. I'd recommend the audio - this is the type of tale I like to listen to while gardening, doing dishes, etc. Because of some of the gory and/or explicit sexual scenes, watch out if listening while driving with the windows down. I had one awkward moment while stopped at a red light.

    Story
    "Strange book, great narration!"
    If you could sum up The Ghoul Archipelago in three words, what would they be?

    Weird, ghoulish fluff.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Eh.


    What does Jennifer Fournier bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I loved her narration and the way she breathed life into rather far fetched leaden characters. If it wasn’t for Ms Fournier’s entrancing voice, I’d probably have turned this back in and reclaimed my credit. I hope this terrific narrator gets to read more polished, less ghoulish books in the future. She deserves better!


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

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    This isn’t my genre, obviously, but I enjoyed the telling so stuck with the tale.

    "The Ghoul Archipelago"

    I loved the concept of the story, but honestly I had a hard time keeping things straight as the point of view changed from one character group to another. This was definitely not your typical zombie apocalypse tale.

    I was once again impressed with the excellent narration by Jennifer Fournier.

    "Interesting zombie book"

    Interesting zombie story that takes place in some fictional islands in the South Pacific. It can be gory and there are some sex scenes so be careful of your surroundings if you're not using headphones. At times the story was a little slow for me but not too bad, and if you're not paying attention you will get confused when it changes from one point of view to another. Excellent narration by Jennifer Fournier!
