Publisher's Summary

Trapped in bumper-to-bumper traffic, Lilian is caught up in a maelstrom of death when the outbreak hits Johannesburg...a city numbering in the millions.

With no one to rely on but herself, she has to find a way off the bloody streets before it's too late. But with a six-month-old baby and a hysterical toddler in tow, escape seems unlikely. 

Battered and abused, Maria looks back upon her life with husband Rolf with loathing. Caught in a prison from which she cannot escape, she's powerless to change her destiny and forever bound to a man she hates. Until the virus grants her an unexpected chance at revenge. 

All it takes is one mistake. As the sun sets against the backdrop of the African veldt and living nightmares walk the streets in the shape of their loved one's bodies, humanity's last hope rests in the hands of ordinary men and women called to do extraordinary things. 

Survive Another Day is the prequel to Last Another Day, book one of the Dangerous Days series. It delivers eight nerve-wracking stories that will show you how it all began.

Zombies in Sith Ifrica

A series of unrelated short stories cobbled together to form a passable novella, narration was good

This is not how we speak in South Africa

All the short stories were set in South Africa, and I am assuming that the narrator was trying his hand at our (I live here) pronunciation of English. Unfortunately he didn't get it right at all which made the characters sound a little daft. But I hung in there anyway. The stories were okay and the narrator's normal narrating voice was good and he had the skill.

Provided great background on the characters

It is a short and quick listen, but it is captivating. A collection of short stories with a select group of characters from the series. I thought it was really interesting to read about the beginning of the apoc for these characters that were introduced a little later in the timeline. It filled up a few gaps that I didn't even notice existed in Book 1, it is worth listening to and understanding a little more about the characters.

Pretty big time skips and no backstory

I don't know how the virus came about; you just jump into it. The prequel is a series of vignettes. There is a huge cast but so far most of the people are temporary. The reader does a good job and I enjoyed his accents.

Not worth listening to

Ordinary people dealing with zombies in no way that is worth the listen. No morals , or lessons or seemingly no point other than to say what happened in these short tales.

It was free and I think that I paid too much in time alone.

Oh Henry

This book was slightly scary, it feels like this is really what would happen, should something like this ever come to be. I'm definitely eager to see If there are more to this novella. Henry made me smile, though. the love for his wife made my heart happy.

Solomn, but thorough and detailed!

Every chapter captured my attention and had me locked in, disappointed at how short they were. I was enticed until the very last chapter, definitely a wonderful read!

Good for a short listen

I thought it was a well done prelude to the series. I’m starting the next book (book 1) and I’m glad I’ll know a little background on the characters. The one thing I wish someone would do in this genre is tell a story about how the virus was created and how it got out!

An alright collection

Nothing too blown away by in the stories. All of them were decent enough and made better by the narration.

Ruined by the narrator

If the narrator can't do a South African accent then he should really rather just stick with his natural accent. This sounded like a natural American "English" speaker trying to do a hybrid Russian / Australian / Scottish psycho who forgets occasionally and then a bit of American comes through. It was really cringe-worthy. In all my many years as an Audible fan I have never come across any narration as poorly researched and executed as this, not even Jeff Harding's performances (when he sounds like he's reading his shopping list) are this bad.

Ag shame! Terrible Accents!

I like zombie stories. I listen to them all the time. Finding a zombie story set in South Africa got me really excited.

The story was okay as far as zombie stories go but the accents were terrible. Part Australian, part middle east, maybe Moroccan - nothing from sub Saharan Africa.

The criticism is aimed more at the production house than the narrator - who was good enough in his native accent.

The South African accent is rich, diverse, and difficult to imitate. The terrible accents ruined the story for me. Please get South Africans to play South African roles.

Really good

Enjoyed this freebie from audible. Usual zombie stuff but each tale is a story about an individual and I liked Henry best.

Great collection of stories with a great narrator!

I thought this was excellent. This is exactly what I want from a zombie story, its epic, tragic, sad, theres fear and desperation and noone is safe.
The narrator was fantastic (whether his accent was perfect or not) he made me feel like I was listening to different people and separates the narration from the speech very well. I cant wait to check out the following books.

enjoyed this.

Good collection that gives you a little extra sneak into some of the characters. I unfortunately listened to this one before the other so spoiled some bits for myself but still enjoyed it.

Good ol' zombie thriller

Survive Another Day, by Baileigh Higgins, is a collection of eight zombie thriller stories chronicling the beginning of the zombie outbreak in South Africa.

In terms of thrill and gore, this one ticks all the boxes. It's ominous, fast, and gives you everything you'd expect from a good ol' zom-horror.

On the flip side of that, don't expect anything particularly unique from the plot or characters. Some of the characters felt a little 2D, nothing jarring though, and if you're just looking for a quick thriller then I'd definitely recommend this.

Quite liked this.

I thought these short stories were interesting and a good introduction to the series that follows. I could have done without some of the graphic descriptions of physical violence, but the events themselves were quite exciting. My favourite story was the one with the children in the field - there was a real sense of peril.

I will listen to the next in the series.
