Summary

It's barely a few months since the shambling dead began to rise.

Now nine people are trapped together in an English country house by the zombie horde outside. There's a journalist, a student, a professor, a surgeon, a housekeeper, a math teacher, a bank clerk, a taciturn Scotswoman, and a celebrity actor. They are strangers to each other. There would be no reason for any of them to harm the others. And yet... before their first night in the house is over, one of them will be dead, and it will be clear to the others that among their number is a murderer.

Set in the universe of the worldwide best-selling app Zombies, Run!, this is a murder mystery like no other. Why would anyone still want to kill a fellow human, even after the zombie apocalypse? And having started, can they be stopped? The desire for vengeance, after all, is the way of all flesh.

As an Audio Show - free for members - when you add Zombies Run!: The Way of All Flesh to your library, you'll get all 6 episodes, each with a runtime of about 20 minutes.

I Should Have Listened to Nigel

I didn't believe that Audible could release something quite as bad as Nigel described in his review. To me the opening 30 seconds were the highlight . . . sounded atmospheric and clearly the production values were going to be high . . .

Not long after I was wishing it was over, hoping that the zombies would win, and quickly!

I'm a big fan of the genre but this . . . I just can't find anything positive to say.

Sorry . . . will just listen to Nigel next time!!!!

It maybe free, but don’t bother

An Agatha Christie who-dunnit and ‘The Walking Dead’ audio-drama fusion. Sounds intriguing, but can’t think anything positive to say except am glad it was less than 2 hours long.

The poor acting, scripts and plot produced a story that lacked emotion and atmosphere. I did listen to all six episodes hoping for a few small exciting twists, but even the grand unveiling of the murderer became tiresome in the final episode.

It's a comedy/drama not a horror

I read the poor reviews and wasn't sure if it was worth listening to but I gave it a go anyway; I'm glad I did. If you're hoping for a horror story you'll be disappointed. There are zombies but they're not what the story is about. Equally, yes, there is a murder but this is not Poirot. It's an interesting story grounded in an unusual setting (the zombies) with a firmly 'tongue in cheek' approach (the acting, which isn't supposed to be Oscar winning) and a few gags along the way. Give it a chance: if you don't like it you can always turn it off.

I've since learnt it is relayed to the running/fitness app Zombies Run. I guess if you've used it you'd know that but, if not, that's where the background comes from.

Like Channel 4 ‘Dead Set’ zombie show

I liked it.
Story was good and so where the characters. Kept me guessing right to the end. Hope to hear another series.

It reminded me of the time channel 4 made the zombie big brother series. Real people just acting like people and not overpaid voice actors, like a lot of books are.

Thank you

Pedestrian rather than Running Zombies

This is a rather poor quality production of an average story featuring some truly dreadful acting. Based on performance, the lady playing Jodie Marsh, should have been fed to the zombies first just to rid the group of her awful delivery. None of the cast are great but the blind detective Chris, gets a shout out for sounding the least like a High School drama student.
The story relies on the, rather overused, concept of a group of strangers brought together in one location who then fall prey to a murderer in their midst. The plot twists and turns and holds some suspense as the listener tries to work out "who dunnit", but we get there long before the cast and this is definitely a four part series stretched into 6 episodes.
The series is free and therefore, perhaps, I shouldn't be too damning but it really does feel like a GCSE drama project:(

Dull story worth a fantastic performance

I had a devastating cold and this silly audio drama was very entertaining for my brain drenched in morve. Just an ordinary detective mystery with hidden passages, murder on tapes, poison, secret rooms, vicious pasts there-is-a-murderer-among-us. Zombies in hinterground don't improove too much. But the performance is superbe.

Don't forget: life is short. Read 'The Power' or something even more deep. 'Anna' by Ammaniti is an unforgettable post-apocaliptic novel. 'Station Eleven' even so.

Enjoyable

Interesting story that holds attention. I have not read the original books but may consider doing so!
