STAR RATINGS GUIDE

Apocalypse and Crumpets

THE BIRDICT

🧡 There is a very specific venn diagram of listener that will enjoy this audiobook, namely zombie apocalypse fans and the British/fans of British sensibilities. I am both.

💚 Listen to this for the glib, circumspect, charmingly understated zombie apocalypse as experienced by main character Bill. There’s some parliamentary politics thrown in for good measure too. Bill, a political consultant, is about as ill-equipped as one can be for the end of the world, especially given his broken leg. But oh he does try.

SQUAWKING THE TALK

🎧 Tim Bruce is so very likeable in this. He has a plummy voice, a sense of self-deprecation and great comic timing that really brings Bill to life. I found this a very laid back listen, with some tense moments.

London

THE BLURB

The outbreak began in New York. Soon it had spread to the rest of the world. People were attacked and infected, and they died. Then they came back. Nowhere is safe from the undead.

As anarchy and civil war took grip across the globe, Britain was quarantined. The press was nationalized. Martial law, curfews, and rationing were implemented. It wasn't enough. An evacuation was planned.

Bill Wright broke his leg on the day of the outbreak. Unable to join the evacuation, he watched from his window as the streets filled with refugees, he watched as the streets emptied once more. He watched as they filled up again, this time with the undead.

He is trapped. He is alone. He is running out of food and water. He knows that to reach the safety of the enclaves, he will have to venture out into the wasteland that once was England. On that journey he will ultimately discover the horrific truth about the outbreak, a decades-old conspiracy, and his unwitting part in it.

This is the first volume of his journal.
