Summary

A bonding adventure goes horribly wrong in this gripping story of trust, survival, and motherly instincts. Karla and her stepdaughter Olivia are alone on a remote family camping trip when news of a mysterious outbreak in nearby San Francisco begins to trickle in.

With little information to go on, the two women must identify the biggest threat to their safety: the supposedly deadly virus, the stranger who stumbles into their campsite, or each other.

Misophonia sufferers beware

Very scene has eating or drinking sounds. I appreciate a good audio drama but the amount of eating and drinking sounds ruined the story for me. I tried to skip past it but that’s where they put the exposition. When will producers realize there are other ways to bring the listener into the story?

I gave up. The constant whining of the teenage character didn’t help the situation any. The story might be excellent after scene three. But I won’t find out.

Scene 3 ruined it

Despite the annoying teenager it was OK. But when the guy showed up and spent the entire time crunching on chips while talking, "crunch crunch crunch gulp", I gave up. Who thinks that stupid noise could possibly add to the story?? Total fail. It's one think to read "constant crunching", it's another to have to listen to it. Send the director back to Directing 101.

Step parents can relate!

This was a great listen while preparing dinner. I’m a big sci-fi fan, anything zombie apocalypse gets my attention. What a surprise that this book contains one of my favorite plots! The acting was great and I highly recommend this book. It explores the complexities of blended families and how emotionally challenging bridging the gap can be.

Loved the way it was told

Made you feel you was there in the middle of it all. Fun to listen to.

Great story and performance!

Was engaged for the entire story! I also love that this whole story took place in the context of a camping trip.

Zombie Enthusiast

The narration was fantastic. Performances were great.

The story was an interesting take on the zombie scene.

Some of the dialogue in the beginning is kind of cringe. Seems unnatural and not the way in which two individuals would speak to one another.

Other than that the story kept me in until the end. Not terrific, but not terrible.

This story was messed up

This was just dark and dumb. The ending is obvious, unwanted and unsatisfying. The background stories don't make any sense.

Very Good Drama

The acting was pretty good, if not a little cringe in a few places, but the writing was excellent! And the payoff at the end was well worth it!

I liked it!

I liked it! I enjoy horror stories and to have a story in less than two hours is sometimes just what I need. Some say they didn’t like the ending, but I did. I usually like endings wrapped up but in this case, I liked the idea that this could’ve ended in two different ways and it’s up to the listener to decide.

creepy

If you like horror stories you'll like this one. Turns out it was a bit too much for me.
