Summary

It was intended to eradicate the common cold; instead it eradicated most of the human race. 

A genetically modified virus killer mutates, transforming everyone it infects into zombies. As it rapidly spreads across the globe, small groups of survivors battle to stay alive and escape the growing hordes of flesh eaters. 

Tom, Becky and their two children are on a family holiday when the virus hits. Follow them as they try to fight their way to safety, gathering others along the way. They soon realise that their best chance of survival will be to reach an ancient symbol of power and strength. Their future and safety lie behind a castle’s walls. Together they must undertake a daunting 100-mile journey. 

Will they make it?

Brill !

A really excellent read set in the UK - and I am finding myself enjoying more and more UK based post apocalyptic fiction.
This is a fast paced and enjoyable listen, with good characters and excellent interaction between them. I am really looking forward to listening the next one (which I have downloaded already)

I strongly recommend the "UK dark - Am I a prepper" series written by Chris Harris

A different angle on a well covered genre

As the title says its a different angle basing it round very unlikely heroes and still being a good listen.
Narrator is not bad just occasionally puts inflection (is that the right word?.... the point of the phrase that needs expressing but said at the wrong point) in to the wrong word or uses the wrong tone of voice causing a relisten to see why the change....

However its modern and mentions a lot of places by name which is quiet amusing given I drive the UK non stop and listen as I go and know the junctions mentioned etc.

Good enough for me to have bought the next 2 in the series anyway.

Was this supposed to be a joke?

I don’t know if the writer was trying to be funny or not. The writing was very unrealistic and was more fixated on tv shows and movies to be taken serious. It could have been culture shock since the story takes place somewhere in England and all the characters are beyond “British”. It seemed more like a “how to survive a zombie apocalypse” manual or maybe introducing a prepper lifestyle to those who stereotypically are not considered to have that mentality. Each time the “prepper” of the group or one of the characters comes up with another way of surviving, it jarred me out of the story like it was a PowerPoint presentation. I’m sorry but this is not my cup of tea (sorry, I had to do it).

Loved this

I was very sceptical as it was a zombie thing put in Britain which in my experience means no one in the story knows how to use a gun however this was surprisingly good and not Hollywood -esque in the gun usage. Fun story different twist quite enjoyable.
