Overview

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 the flu, armed police come and lock you in your house to die alone. When you catch this flu, it kills you in days. And when you catch this flu, two hours after it's killed you, your eyelids snap open again . . . Flu is a pacey, terrifying, frighteningly real zombie horror story.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Simmons writes like the grotesque lovechild of George A. Romero and Charles Dickens." —Physical Graffiti
Publishers Weekly - Audio
When a particularly nasty strain of the flu mutates, millions of people are killed the world over. Soon, the dead start rising—and when those who’ve died come back, they’ve got a hearty appetite for human flesh. With the Zombie Apocalypse in full swing, Ireland’s Geri McConnell and other survivors must battle to live another day as the airborne contagion and hordes of zombies continue to run rampant. In this audio edition of the first volume in Simmons’s Flu series, narrator Michael Kramer delivers a pitch-perfect performance. His voice is low and weary, his tone thoroughly creepy. With deliberate pacing, the narrator takes his time with the story—heightening the book’s tension in a way that will make listeners squirm. Among the many zombie audiobooks published in recent years, this one manages to stand out from the pack. A Tantor paperback. (Sept.)

Not very good. I kept skipping ahead to see if something would happen. I don't think i enjoy British writing very much

I first listened to this book (chapters 38-40) on sirius xm and LOVED it. Made that hour of the trip fly by! You'd think with how overdone the zombie genre is these days, I'd care less, but this book really makes you think, worry, wonder??? And then you start caring about the characters and before you know it, you are purchasing "Fever". Love the Irish cursing. "#%&$ all..." LOL.
